No Guard (Ability)

In battle: This is already clarified by "All moves used by or against a Pokémon with this Ability cannot miss"
In {{2v2|Diamond|Pearl}}, 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 like {{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.
