There are many people that say protect is useless and not to use it. But, it can stall out trick room and save you from a fake out which flinches. I'd like to use it to my advantage in competitions, so what can I do to use this move more efficiently?
You can use it to get a speed boost safely, protect yourself from fake out, stall with burns or poison, heal with lefties and poison(gliscor) and so much more! Hope I helped!
