I am off guard on No Guard!

0 votes

Pls answer all of the questions! ^_^

1) With no guard, would protect, detect, endure etc. always hit?
2) Does no guard work in confusion?
3) Does no guard work with paralysis?
4) Can any other Pokemon apart from machamp have the no guard ability?
5) Does no guard guarantee that the opponent pokemons attacks will hit you 100%?
6) Does focus punch also hit while getting hurt (without focus energy!)?

Thanks in advance ^_^

Best answer

1) In Diamond and Pearl, a Pokémon with No Guard can successfully hit an opponent's Pokémon that has used Protect or Detect, but only if the attacker uses a move with less than 100% accuracy; the lower the initial accuracy of the move is, the higher the chance of the move breaking through Protect/Detect. Thus, when used against Protect or Detect, moves like Swift and Aerial Ace will always be blocked. OHKO moves are exempted from this behavior; they will always miss. This was a bug, and was fixed in Platinum.

2) It may, may not.

3) Again, it may, may not.

4) Yes. Golurk, Machop, Machoke, Golett.

5) Yes.

6) No. And Focus Energy does not guarantee Focus Punch a hit.

um, GT, the 1st q is this: I am machamp with no guard, i use protect until max pp limit. Will EVERY protect work? and thanks for the rest too!
No, it won't. Never ever.
Protect is not about missing, it's about failing.
whatever ^=^
