Safeguard (move)

134 bytes added, 23 March
Effect: Other users seem to have already tested for one ability in gens III (Eastern Goldfinch) and IV (Kikugi). Listed the others because they all work the same way.
Safeguard prevents a Pokémon from being made drowsy by {{m|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 target'sAbility [[{{a|Effect Spore]]}}, {{a|Static}}, {{a|Flame Body}} or {{a|Poison Point}}.
 
Safeguard is removed from a Pokémon's side of the field if it is hit by {{m|Defog}} (even if it was used by an ally).
 
===Generation IV===
Safeguard prevents allies from being {{status|confusion|confused}} by a {{b|Figy}}, {{b|Wiki}}, {{b|Mago}}, {{b|Aguav}} or [[Iapapa Berry]] (regardless of whether it is consumed as a held item, via {{m|Fling}}, or via {{m|Bug Bite}} or {{m|Pluck}}) as well as being {{status|burn}}ed or {{status|poison}}ed by a held [[Flame Orb]] or [[Toxic Orb]].
 
Safeguard is removed from a Pokémon's side of the field if it is hit by {{m|Defog}} (even if it was used by an ally).
 
===Generation V onward===
