Flavor Text

The user cloaks itself with a veil of shimmering scales and spores that prevents move side effects for five turns.

Move Description

The user scatters shimmering scales or pollen with a shake of its body or a fluttering of its wings, petals or leaves, forming a barrier that intercepts the added effects of attacks launched against it and its teammates.


Protects Pokémon on the user's side of the field from the added effect chances of the opponents' attacks for five turns.

An added effect chance is a move's chance to inflict a status ailment, cause a stat change, or make the target flinch in addition to the move's main effect; it is distinct from the move's main effect. For example, Flamethrower will never cause a burn to targets behind Dust Guard, but Thunder Wave will always cause paralysis and Air Cutter can still land critical hits.

Defog used by an opponent will remove this protection.
