|X/Y||Changes the Pokémon's type to the type of the move it's using.|
Protean changes the type of the Pokémon to be the same as the move it is about to use, excluding the move Struggle. This will then always results in a STAB (same-type attack bonus) if the move causes damage. The type of the user will only change upon using a move of a new type or switching the Pokémon out of battle. If the latter occurs, when sent back into battle, it will regain its original typing.
Outside of battle
Protean has no effect outside of battle.
