What happens if a Pokemon with Sleep Talk and Protect uses Sleep Talk? Does Protect still have a chance of failing or will it always succeed?

Also, as Drdudeofbananas mentioned, what if the Pokemon using Sleep Talk is slower? How will that affect the use of Protect?

i have also wondered about this. another question: if you are slower than the user, use sleep talk and it becomes protect, will protect fail or does sleep talk follow a system so it knows what move sleep talk will be before its used?
I hadn't thought of that, if you don't mind I'll edit it into the question.
no problem;)

For my own question: protect that is not prioritized will fail.

boring answer, but thats how it is
