asked Apr 6 by Toxicroak
take that to the Meta, it sounds like a good idea
Meh sounds like a bad idea
Believe it or not that idea has been suggested and rejected. I'm an ancient enough user to have seen that. Don't take it to the meta.
too late for that im afraid
it's been asked, let's see if people's minds have changed since the ancient times; lol.

First of all King's Shield has priority but in order to understand it here's my revised and revied list.

Aegislash

King's Shield protects the user from any moves except status moves for that turn. Additionally, if King's Shield blocks an attack that would make contact with the user, the attacker's Attack stat drops by 2 stages. If Sucker Punch is used on a Pokémon that has used King's Shield, the move fails and the Pokémon's Attack does not drop.

If selected by an Aegislash with Stance Change while in Blade Forme, it will change to Shield Forme before it would use King's Shield, even if the move fails or is not used due to something like sleep.

Using King's Shield, Protect, Detect, Endure, or Spiky Shield consecutively decreases the chance of success to 50%. This is an increased priority move, and therefore will always go before attacks during the turn.
King's Shield is unable to defend against status moves or any of the following moves:

  • Doom Desire - Steel - Special
  • Feint - Normal - Physical
  • Future Sight - Psychic - Special
  • Phantom Force - Ghost - Physical
  • Shadow Force - Ghost - Physical

The users of these moves do not get an Attack drop. Additionally, Feint, Phantom Force, and Shadow Force lift King's Shield's protection for the rest of the turn.

King shield is basically Protect/Detect. In addition, if an opponent used a contact move at the user of King's Shield, the opponent's Attack is lowered by two stages.
Kings Shield has a priority of +3
