No Guard (ability)

Effect

No Guard ensures that all attacks used by, and targeted at, the ability-bearer hit without fail.

This includes moves used on a Pokémon in the hidden stages of the moves Fly, Dive, Dig and Shadow Force.

Outside of battle

If a Pokémon with No Guard is the leading party Pokémon, wild Pokémon are twice as likely to appear.
