No Guard (Ability)

Effect

In battle

All moves used by or against a Pokemon with this Ability cannot miss. It also allows Pokemon to be hit during the semi-invulnerable turn of Fly, Bounce, Dive, Dig, Shadow Force,Sky Drop, and Phantom Force.

In Diamond and Pearl, a Pokemon with No Guard can successfully hit a Pokemon that has used Protect or Detect, but only if it uses a move with less than 100% accuracy. The lower the initial accuracy of the move, the higher its chance of breaking through Protect or Detect. Thus, when used against Protect or Detect, moves like Swift and Aerial Ace will always be blocked. One-hit knockout moves are exempted from this behavior and will be protected against. This battle mechanic was a bug, and was fixed in Platinum so that most moves are blocked by Protect and Detect.

In a Double Battle or a Triple Battle, the effect only applies to the Pokemon with No Guard and any Pokemon targeting it.

Outside of battle

Outside of battle, if a Pokemon with No Guard is leading the party, the wild Pokemon encounter rate is increased to 1 50%.
