Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

I thought Protect can protect the user from anything?

I say this because when I watched the episode when Paul fought Brandon(I can't remember the episode),Paul ordered his Electivire to use Protect against Brandon's Regirock's Stone Edge,but the Stone Edge broke through the Protect.Why is this happening?

Sorry if there's any confusion anywhere in the paragraph

its probably just another example of anime physics
in the anime, a psychic attack could do damage to a dark type,even though dark types are immune to psychic.
so, yeah.

In-game the more you use protect the higher it has a chance of failing, in the anime when Pauls electrive used protect a lot it eventually got weaker and weaker thus meaning it failed more often.
