I don't see the difference except for the pp.

I agree. It's okay he just thought it had a difference.
His extra description said 'I don't see the difference except for PP' (spelling corrected :P)
That just implies that he doesn't see the difference, but there might be one. His not saying the only difference is PP. Its just in this case there is no difference apart from the typing
The use of Detect is limited to Doubles, where it should be used to escape Imprison.
Trachy come on why do you do that?

You hide or be negitive about every thing!!!!!!!!!
I hid the posts here since they no longer apply, since I removed the flags to this post and the whole thing was just an argument over a point that has since been resolved.

And as for negativity, I believe a more accurate term for it would be being realistic with a slight twinge of being annoyed. And a good reason to be annoyed also, as I doubt there is a person in the world who likes being called a bit** for doing their job. However, you are young, and the impetuousness of youth is better dealt with through patience than through anger. Please, learn to accept that I only do what is best for the site.
In hackmons, if you have protean, detect makes you fighting, and protect makes you normal.

Best answer

Yeah. Like Archen said choose Protect
There is NO meaningful difference between Detect and Protect - Detect is just a fighting type while Protect is a normal type (and has more pp). Their effects are exactly the same, through different Pokemon may not be able to learn one, bu are able to learn the other.

You can check about detect here and protect here

I would just like to add to the two answers:

Imprison and protect, while uncommon, can lock any Pokemon from Protecting, which can be deadly in Double/Triples. However, Detect isn't annulated, so it can potentially serve a purpose barring its different typing and less PP. On a Mega-Lucario for example.

Oh, I just noticed trachy's comment. Well, I credit him, sort of.
