Talk:No Guard (Ability)
Note: This applies for all abilities. I think it would be a good idea if we had an extra section like: Out of Battle or something similar that is reworded. Then we could seperate the text instead of having a large block to read. Tesh 17:43, 21 September 2007 (UTC)
No Guard eliminates the immunity granted by Shadow Force. Diachronos 16:04, 29 September 2008 (UTC)
Does no Guard allow OHKO attacks to hit the opponent every time? Obviously there's currently no way to have this happen, but if a Machamp with no guard knew sheer cold, could it theoretically always hit the opponent?--Skaisdead 21:51, 14 September 2009 (UTC)
- Provided the other conditions are met (levels or speed or whatever), then I see no theoretical problem. —darklordtrom 21:59, 14 September 2009 (UTC)
In-Battle Effects post-Diamond/Pearl
This does not happen anymore in Platinum or HeartGold/SoulSilver.
What, exactly, doesn't happen anymore? Does No Guard always break through Protect/Detect, or does it never do so? Starscream 18:42, 23 September 2009 (UTC)
- No Guard moves will not bypass protect post-D/P, unless it's Feint
I'm not sure if it was intended or not, but in D/P in Battle Tower double battles, No Guard Earthquake will hit semi-invulnerable partners, but not levitating partners. I noticed it and would like someone to experiment with that for confirmation WeavilePwns 02:04, 16 April 2010 (UTC)
How about some trivia for this ability?
Here's my contribution: If No Guard is in effect, an odd paradoxical scenario emerges in which a Pokémon can use Dig to hit a Pokémon that is currently Flying. (Video proof here) Daltonlaffs 23:28, 25 January 2011 (UTC)
