Wonder Guard

Is it a glitch that it bypasses Wonder Guard, or was it intended for it to? Because if it's a glitch, i think it should be noted as such. CherryParanoia 00:52, 20 August 2009 (UTC)

One reason I think they made it bypass wonderguard is because it is a sort of hybrid between a fire attack and bite, a dark move. Shedinja is weak to both of these types. They may have decided that since people would hack, this would be a fitting move to bypass wonderguard. Thoughts?Poisson14 00:03, 9 November 2009 (UTC)

Speculation and not allowed. —darklordtrom 08:24, 9 November 2009 (UTC)
Wait... I dont get it... Shedinja is weak to fire type moves... so why can't fire fang hit it? Toadstool 20:00, 24 June 2011 (UTC)
In Generation IV, Fire Fang would bypass Wonder Guard even on a Pokémon which was not weak to fire. No Pokémon of this description exist legitimately, but giving that ability to a Pokémon without weaknesses (like Spiritomb) is a popular hack. I believe it was in the course of such a hack that this glitch was discovered. So no, it has no noticable effect in the regular course of the game, but it is a data anomaly that deserves mention on the page. --AndyPKMN (talk) 00:55, 27 June 2011 (UTC)
