Effect

No moves will hit the user for the remainder of this turn. If the user is last to act this turn, this move will fail.

If the user successfully used Detect, Endure, Protect, Quick Guard, or Wide Guard on the last turn, this move has a 50% chance to fail.

Lock-On, Mind Reader, and No Guard provide a (100 – accuracy)% chance for moves to break through this move. This does not apply to one-hit KO moves (Fissure, Guillotine, Horn Drill, and Sheer Cold); those are always blocked by this move.

Thunder during Rain Dance and Blizzard during Hail have a 30% chance to break through this move.

The following effects are not prevented by this move:

This move cannot be selected by Assist or Metronome.
