Spiky Shield is a Grass-type move that protects the user from attacks during the turn. If another Pokémon makes contact with the Pokémon using Spiky Shield, the attacking Pokémon will take ⅛ of its maximum HP in damage. Its success rate is divided by 3 each time Protect, Detect, Endure, Spiky Shield, Quick Guard, or Wide Guard is successfully used consecutively, to a minimum success rate of 1729. Curse, Future Sight, Imprison, Perish Song, Psych Up, Roar, Role Play, Transform, and Whirlwind are not affected by Spiky Shield. Feint and Phantom Force bypass Spiky Shield and remove its effects for the remainder of the turn.
