Your team is Machamp, Politoed, and Rhydon. Machamp uses Wide Guard. Politoed uses Surf. Will Wide Guard protect Rhydon from Surf?

Best answer

Wide Guard protects all Pokémon on the user's side of the field from attacks that can target multiple Pokémon during the turn it is used, even ones that also strike allies, such as Earthquake and Surf.

So yes, and I even tried it in-game.
