Sturdy will really protect against any attack that faint your pokemons using it only one time

Best answer

Yeah, Sturdy is now a makeshift Focus Sash, and will always leave you with 1 HP before fainting.

And to answer the question that will likely be answered in the future: NO. You will not be able to stack Sturdy and Focus Sash for 2 turns of enduring.

Well, that is obvious, as you won't have full health (unless you manage to get Shednija with Sturdy)
You'll be surprised at the people who'll ask that question, once these new mechanics are known, haha.
