It's only Ability is No Guard, so it should have been Super-Effective. Why did it not affect the Doublade?

Thanks all. Mot gonna choose a BA. :D
This was blatantly obvious...

The ability 'No Guard' allows you to always hit - provided type immunities aren't in place. Unfortunately, No Guard doesn't ignore Doublade's ghost typing meaning that Normal and Fighting attacks still don't do any damage at all - so that's why it didn't affect it.

The only ability which allows Normal and Fighting moves to hit Ghost types is the ability 'Scrappy', or the use of moves like Foresight allows you to have that same effect.

Don't forget the Ring Target.
Not if we're talking competitive here...

Doublade is a Steel/Ghost Type, LOL. Ghost Types aren't affected by Fighting Type moves.

Because Doublade is Ghost type, so it is immune to Aura Sphere. No Guard does not change type matchups at all - it only changes accuracy.
