PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A

So I was fighting someone on Pokemon showdown and my wideguard didn’t do anything and my smeargle got hit. It said wideguard was used and it was on the first turn so I dont know why it didn’t do anything. The move was iron head as well so it should have been blocked.

Wide Guard only protects your Pokémon from moves that hit multiple Pokémon, like rock slide, earthquake, blizzard, or any of these moves (with some exceptions). Iron head only hits one Pokémon, so it won’t be blocked by Wide Guard.
