===Generation VI===
Spiky Shield protects the user from all effects of moves that target the user during the turn it is used, including damage. (This does not include damage afflicted by weather conditions it is susceptible to, or damage from a status ailment that it obtained on a previous turn.) Additionally, if Spiky Shield blocks an attack that would make [[contact]] with the user, the attacker suffers damage equal to 1/8 of its maximum HP. However, if an attack is blocked by Spiky Shield, the effects of the user's {{DL|In-battle effect item|Rocky Helmet}}, {{a|Rough Skin}}, and {{a|Iron Barbs}} will not activate. If {{m|Sucker Punch}} is used on a Pokémon that has used Spiky Shield, the move fails and the Pokémon does not take damage.
