Protect (Japanese: まもる Protect) is a Normal-type move introduced in Generation II. Although it makes the Pokémon virtually invincible to most attacks, it does not protect it from Shadow Force,[1]Phantom Force, and Feint, an anti-protection move. It also does not protect it from indirect weather damage, such as Hail and Sandstorm. In Pokémon Diamond and Pearl, there was a glitch that Thunder while Rain Dance is in effect and Blizzard while Hail is in effect both had 30% chance of penetrating Protect and Detect. This glitch was already fixed.

After being protected from Protect, the user can use it again. However, the chances of it protecting your Pokémon are decreased by 2/3 every time you use any of the following moves: Protect, Detect, King's Shield, Spiky Shield, Endure, Wide Guard and Quick Guard. It will return to normal upon use of a different move or switching out.

Trivia

It is the first move that protects the user ever created, and the second one is Detect. After some time, Nintendo created new Protection moves in Generation V, the first named Wide Guard, which protects against attacks that hit the Pokémon surrounding the user (Ex. Flame burst), and Quick Guard, which protects against attacks that strike first (Ex. Quick Attack, Extreme Speed).
