Quick Guard (Japanese: ファストガード Fast Guard) is a non-damaging Fighting-type move introduced in Generation V.


Quick Guard protects all Pokémon on the user's side of the field from enemy attacks that have increased priority such as Quick Attack or Aqua Jet, but does not block moves that have been given an increased priority through Prankster that would not usually have one. Quick Guard does not protect against Feint.

Using Quick Guard, Wide Guard, Detect, Protect, or Endure consecutively decreases the chance of success to 50%. This is an increased priority move, and therefore will always go before attacks during the turn.

Despite Feint being an increased priority move, it lifts the effect of Quick Guard when used on an opponent's team.[1]


Games Description
The user protects itself and its allies from priority moves. If used in succession, its chance of failing rises.

A pulsating bright red energy shield appear in front of Mienfoo's hands and goes around itself and others, protecting them from attacks. While the barrier is up, Mienfoo floats in the air.
