Effect[edit | edit source]

In battle[edit | edit source]

Crafty Shield protects all allied Pokémon, including the user, from status-type moves. Unlike most shield-based moves, it can be used multiple times in a row without fail. It is ineffective against Perish Song.

If the moves, Feint, Shadow Force, or Phantom Force are used, the effects of Crafty Shield are removed from the entire team.

Outside of battle[edit | edit source]

Confide has no affect outside of battle.
