Wonder Guard (Japanese: ふしぎなまもり Mysterious Defense) is an ability that protects the Pokémon from receiving damage from any attacks, except for super effective attacks. It is an ability exclusive to Shedinja. It cannot be transferred to other Pokémon by the use of moves, such as with Skill Swap, but it can be copied, as in the case of Pokémon that have the Trace ability or Pokémon that use Transform.
While Wonder Guard prevents damage from attacks, it does not prevent damage from effects such as weather conditions, poison or burn, Stealth Rock or Spikes, Leech Seed, and other similar effects. It does not prevent recoil damage. Additionally, the attacks Beat Up, Bide, Doom Desire, Fire Fang, Future Sight, and Struggle ignore the effect of Wonder Guard, regardless of whether the attack is super effective or not.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The only Pokémon that can learn Wonder Guard naturally is Shedinja, who has just 1 HP.
- If a /-type Pokémon, such as Sableye or Spiritomb, somehow gain Wonder Guard as their ability, their type combination gives them zero weaknesses and therefore gives it complete immunity to almost all damaging attacks.
