Summary

Blocks damaging moves this action and lowers attacking Pokémon's Attack by two stages on contact.

Description

The Pokémon switches positions and guards itself, protecting itself from damaging attacks and harshly lowering the Attack of any who attempt to make direct contact with it. Additionally, if the user is Blade Aegislash, it will change to Shield Aegislash upon using this move. However, King's Shield does not protect against the more tricky nature of status moves, which affect the user normally. This attack costs energy as normal for Protect, plus an additional 2% energy regardless of whether or not it blocks anything.
