Flavor TextThe user takes a defensive stance while it protects itself from damage. It also lowers the Attack stat of any attacker who makes direct contact.
Switches Aegislash to Shield Forme.
No damaging 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's Attack is lowered by one stage. If the user is last to act this turn, this move will fail (but will still change Aegislash's form).
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%.
Non-damaging moves and damaging moves without the Blocked by Protect flag are not blocked by this move.
