PKMN Anime: Safeguard = Protect

The anime has made, and still continues to make, no distinction between Safeguard and Protect since both moves have been consistently shown to share the same function of protecting a user from damage with only the visual appearance of the moves and the method in which they are used as being the differentiating factors. --Arima 00:45, 26 June 2010 (UTC)


Does Safeguard protect your Pokémon from getting confused by Thrash/Outrage/Petal Dance? --PKMNAdventurer 03:01, 18 March 2012 (UTC)

Safeguard and Abilities

I was playing Colosseum earlier, and after the opponent used Safeguard and battled against my Ampharos, it was paralyzed from Static. Is this the case for all games, where Abilities related to status effects are still active, or was it a glitch? ht14 20:00, 7 March 2016 (UTC)

I kind of think it might be limited to move effects. If you can, check a Gen III core game (or Gen VI; and/or IV/V too if it works differently in Gen III vs VI). Tiddlywinks (talk) 20:12, 7 March 2016 (UTC)

Again about Abilities

So there was a discussion about whether or not Safeguard protects agains Abilities like Static, and right now a wild Shuckle used Safeguard and then made contact with my Raichu on the next turn and still got paralyzed (I know it was still under the effect of Safeguard, because I made a mistake and tried to use Thunder Wave on it only for it to not affect it).

It was Pokémon Pearl, by the way. Kikugi (talk) 13:45, 13 January 2019 (UTC)

What Safeguard does

Safeguard is a move that, for 5 turns, prevents status to the user and its allies. It is as simple as that. - unsigned comment from Wickedweavile (talkcontribs)
