Wide Guard (Japanese: ワイドガード Wide Guard) is a non-damaging Rock-type move introduced in Generation V.

Effect

Generation V

Wide Guard protects all Pokémon on the user's side of the field for the rest of that turn from damaging moves that can target multiple Pokémon, even those used by an ally that strike all Pokémon on the field (such as Earthquake and Surf). Wide Guard will block these moves even in Single Battles. Wide Guard cannot block status moves that target multiple Pokémon, such as Dark Void and Teeter Dance.

Using Wide Guard, Quick Guard, Detect, Protect, or Endure consecutively decreases the chance of success by 50% for each successful use.

This move has +3 priority, so will be executed before most other moves.

Feint and Shadow Force lift the effect of Wide Guard when successfully used on an opponent's team.

Generation VI

Wide Guard can now be used consecutively without failing, although it still decreases the chance of success for Protect, Detect, Endure, King's Shield, and Spiky Shield.

Hyperspace Fury, Hyperspace Hole, and Phantom Force will lift the effect of Wide Guard from the target's team when used successfully. Feint and Shadow Force now lift the effect of Wide Guard from all allies, if they hit an ally.
