'''Light Screen''' (Japanese: '''ひかりのかべ''' ''Light Wall'') is a non-damaging {{type|Psychic}} [[move]] introduced in [[Generation I]]. It is the [[special move|special]] counterpart to {{m|Reflect}}. It has been [[TM16]] since Generation III, except for [[Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!]], where it's [[TM06]].
 
==Effect==
 
Light Screen will fail if the user is already under its effect. The effect of Light Screen is ignored by [[critical hit]]s. If Light Screen causes the user's special to reach 1024 or higher at any time during battle calculations, it will be reduced {{wp|modulo operation|mod}} 1024.
 
The effects of Light Screen can be lifted by {{m|Haze}}.
 
===Generation II===
Light Screen now remains in effect for 5 turns and will double the user's {{stat|Special Defense}} of any Pokémon on the user's side of the field instead.
 
===GenerationHaze IIIcan onwards===no longer lift the effects of Light Screen.
Instead of doubling the Special Defense of the user, Light Screen now technically halves the damage done to it by [[special move]]s; it still does not reduce damage done by {{cat|moves that deal direct damage}}.
 
Light===Generation Screen will disappear immediately if an opponent uses {{m|Brick Break}}, {{m|Defog}} or {{m|Psychic Fangs}}, and in {{Pokémon XD}}, {{m|Shadow Shed}}. Pokémon with the Ability {{a|Infiltrator}} will ignore the effects of Light Screen when attacking.III===
Instead of doubling the Special Defense of affected Pokémon, Light Screen now technically halves the damage done to them by [[special move]]s; it still does not reduce damage done by {{cat|moves that deal direct damage}}.
 
InIf battlemultiple withPokémon alliedare Pokémon,present bothon the user's side of the field, andall itsof alliesthem are protected by Light Screen, but special damage is only reduced by a third rather than half.
 
Light Screen is removed from a Pokémon's side of the field if an opponent uses {{m|Brick Break}} or {{m|Shadow Shed}} on it (even if it is immune to Brick Break due to being {{type|Ghost}}), unless it is {{cat|Protection moves|protected}} from the move or the move misses.
 
Light Screen can be used as part of a [[Contest combination|Pokémon Contest combination]], with the user gaining an extra appeal point if {{m|Calm Mind}} was used in the prior turn.
 
If===Generation {{DL|In-battle effect item|Light Clay}} is held when Light Screen is used, it will extend the duration of Light Screen from 5 to 8 turns.IV===
Light Screen is removed from a Pokémon's side of the field if any Pokémon (including an ally) uses {{m|Brick Break}} or {{m|Defog}} on it (even if it is immune to Brick Break due to being {{type|Ghost}}), unless it is {{cat|Protection moves|protected}} from the move or the move misses.
 
If [[Light Clay]] is held when Light Screen is used, it will extend the duration of Light Screen from 5 to 8 turns.
 
===Generation V onward===
Light Screen is removed from a Pokémon's side of the field if it is hit by {{m|Brick Break}}, {{m|Defog}} or {{m|Psychic Fangs}}. Light Screen is not removed if the target is immune to the move (e.g. a Ghost-type Pokémon targeted by Brick Break). Pokémon with the Ability {{a|Infiltrator}} ignore the effects of Light Screen when attacking.
 
If powered up by a [[Psychium Z]] into Z-Light Screen, the user's {{stat|Special Defense}} stat rises by one stage.
 
If powered up by aUsing {{DL|Z-Crystalm|PsychiumGlitzy ZGlow}} intowill set up Z-Light Screen, on the user's {{stat|Specialside Defense}}of stat rises by onethe stagefield.
