Safeguard (Japanese: しんぴのまもり Mysterious Safeguard) is a non-damaging Normal-type move introduced in Generation II. It was TM20 from Generation III to Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, and is TM19 in Generation VIII.

Effect

  This move effect may be in need of research.
Reason: Can a disobedient Pokémon put itself to sleep while under the effect of Safeguard (in each generation)?
You can discuss this on the talk page.

Generation II

Safeguard prevents the user and its allies from being inflicted with non-volatile status conditions and confusion for five turns. Existing status conditions are not cured by Safeguard and have their effects as normal.

Safeguard does not protect from self-inflicted sleep from Rest, but does prevent confusion due to fatigue after using Outrage, Petal Dance, or Thrash. Safeguard does not prevent a Pokémon becoming confused due to its held Berserk Gene.

Generation III

Safeguard no longer prevents confusion due to fatigue after using Outrage, Petal Dance, or Thrash. It also does not prevent allies from being confused by a held Figy, Wiki, Mago, Aguav or Iapapa Berry.

Safeguard prevents a Pokémon from being made drowsy by Yawn, but will not prevent it from falling asleep due to its effect if it is already drowsy.

Safeguard does not protect the user from being inflicted with a status condition by making contact with a Pokémon with the Ability Effect Spore, Static, Flame Body or Poison Point.

Generation IV

Safeguard prevents allies from being confused by a Figy, Wiki, Mago, Aguav or Iapapa Berry (regardless of whether it is consumed as a held item, via Fling, or via Bug Bite or Pluck) as well as being burned or poisoned by a held Flame Orb or Toxic Orb.

Safeguard is removed from a Pokémon's side of the field if it is hit by Defog (even if it was used by an ally).

Generation V onward

Safeguard no longer prevents allies from being confused by a Figy, Wiki, Mago, Aguav or Iapapa Berry (regardless of whether it is consumed as a held item, via Fling, or via Bug Bite or Pluck). Safeguard no longer prevents allies from being burned or poisoned by a held Flame Orb or Toxic Orb. Safeguard now protects the user from being inflicted with a status condition by making contact with a Pokémon with the Ability Effect Spore, Static, Flame Body or Poison Point. Safeguard can be bypassed by Infiltrator.

If powered up by a Normalium Z into Z-Safeguard, the user's Speed stat is raised by one stage.
