Safeguard (Japanese: しんぴのまもり Mysterious Safeguard) is a non-damaging Normal-type move introduced in Generation II. It has been TM20 since Generation III.

Contents

Effect

Safeguard prevents the user and its allies from being inflicted with non-volatile status conditions and confusion for five turns, except self-inflicted status conditions from Rest and moves that confuse the user due to fatigue (Outrage, Petal Dance, and Thrash). Existing status conditions are not cured by Safeguard and have their effects as normal.

Safeguard prevents a Pokémon from being made drowsy by Yawn, but will not prevent it from falling asleep due to its effect if it is already drowsy.

In Generation IV only, Safeguard prevents allies from being confused by a held Figy, Wiki, Mago, Aguav or Iapapa Berry (regardless of whether it is consumed as a held item, via Fling, or via Bug Bite or Pluck) as well as being burned or poisoned by a held Flame Orb and Toxic Orb.

If powered up by a Normalium Z into Z-Safeguard, the user's Speed stat raises one stage.
