The only defense-oriented ability I can think of is Shedinja's Wonder Guard, which ensures that only super effective and indirect attacks can hit. Are there any other abilities that increase the defensive capabilities of a Pokémon? This is for White 2, by the way.

This is definitely incomplete. You forgot at least flash fire.
Yes, that's what I mean.
Anything that lessons enemy attack is not defense-oriented, so Intimidate wouldn't be what I'm looking for.
So how do you know that fur coat raises your physical defense instead of lowering the opponent's physical attack?
Also do you want me to convert this to a comment?
