Effects

King's Shield prevents any attacks targeted at the user from striking on that turn. In addition, if an opponent targeted a contact move at the user of King's Shield, the opponent's Attack is lowered by two stages.

Its accuracy drops to 50% if used consecutively after itself or any other protecting move.

Stats can be lowered to a minimum of -6 stages each.

Z-Move effects

When a Pokémon is holding Steelium Z and uses its Z-Power, King's Shield turns into Z-King's Shield and eliminates any stat drops applied to the user, in addition to its usual effect as above.
