'''No Guard''' (Japanese: '''ノーガード''' ''No Guard'') is an [[Ability]] introduced in [[Generation IV]]. Eight {{OBP|Pokémon|species}} can have this Ability. Prior to [[Generation V]], it was the [[signature Ability]] of {{p|Machop}}'s [[evolution]]ary line.
All [[move]]s used by or against a Pokémon with this Ability cannot miss. It also allows Pokémon to be hit during the {{cat|Moves with a semi-invulnerable turn|semi-invulnerable turn}} of {{m|Fly}}, {{m|Bounce}}, {{m|Dive}}, {{m|Dig}}, {{m|Shadow Force}}, {{m|Sky Drop}}, and {{m|Phantom Force}}.
In {{v22v2|Diamond and |Pearl|s}}, a Pokémon with No Guard can successfully hit a Pokémon that has used {{m|Protect}} or {{m|Detect}}, but only if it uses a move with less than 100% accuracy. The lower the initial accuracy of the move, the higher its chance of breaking through Protect or Detect. Thus, when used against Protect or Detect, moves likethat never miss (such as {{m|Swift}} and {{m|Aerial Ace}}) will always be blocked. [[One-hit knockout move]]s are exempted from this behavior and will be protected against. This battle mechanic was a bug, and was fixed in {{v2|Platinum}} so that most moves are blocked by Protect and Detect.
In a [[Double Battle]] or a [[Triple Battle]], the effect only applies to the Pokémon with No Guard and any Pokémon targeting it.
===Outside of battle===
Outside of battle, if a Pokémon with No Guard is leadingin the first place in the [[party]] (even if [[fainting|fainted]]), the wild Pokémon encounter rate is increasedincreases toby 15050%.
