These moves protect the user entirely from certain moves for a turn.

Z-Moves and Max Moves will still be successful (except against Max Guard), but have their damage reduced if the Pokémon is protected from the move. Other moves that do damage through protection can bypass their protection (even if the protection move would not normally protect the Pokémon from those moves). Moves that break protection will remove the effects of protection (except Max Guard).
