Flavor Text

In addition to protecting the user from attacks, this move also damages any attacker who makes direct contact.


No moves will hit the user for the remainder of this turn. If a move used against the user has the Makes contact flag, the attacking Pokémon loses 1/8 of its max HP. If the user is last to act this turn, this move will fail.

If the user successfully used Baneful Bunker, Detect, Endure, King's Shield, Protect, Quick Guard, Spiky Shield, or Wide Guard on the last turn, the chance of using this move successfully is reduced to 50%.

Moves without the Blocked by Protect flag are not blocked by this move.

This move cannot be selected by Assist, Metronome or Parodize.
