Quick Guard is a defensive Fighting-type move.

Quick Guard protects all Pokémon on the user's side of the field from moves that have increased priority during that turn, such as Quick Attack or Aqua Jet.

It blocks moves given an increased priority through Prankster and Gale Wings. However, even if given priority by these Abilities, Quick Guard cannot block any moves that would normally bypass Protect, Detect and Spiky Shield, such as Transform. Quick Guard can be used consecutively without failing, although it still decreases the chance of success for Protect, Detect, Endure and Spiky Shield.

Feint lifts the effect of Quick Guard from the opponent's team when successfully used on an opponent, and hits despite being an increased priority move.
