King's Shield (Japanese: キングシールド King Shield) is a non-damaging Steel-type move introduced in Generation VI. It is the signature move of Aegislash.
King's Shield protects the user from all effects of any physical or special moves that target it 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.) Additionally, if King's Shield blocks an attack that would make contact with the user, the attacker's Attack stat drops by 2 stages.
Using King's Shield, Protect, Detect, Endure, or Spiky Shield consecutively decreases the chance of success to 50%. This is an increased priority move, and therefore will always go before attacks during the turn.
King's Shield is unable to defend against status moves or any of the following moves:
The users of these moves do not get an Attack drop. Additionally, Feint, Phantom Force, and Shadow Force lift King's Shield's protection for the rest of the turn.
|| The user takes a defensive stance while it protects itself from damage. It also harshly lowers the Attack stat of any attacker who makes direct contact.
