What are the odds of pulling of a triple protect?

It just happened in a battle against me and I want to know the odds since I have never been able to pull off even two protects in a row.

Doesn't it always fail after the 1st time...?

Doesn't seem to some time on Smogon, but in-game it does seem to work that way, yeah.

Nope, the chance gets halved each time. So 1st time, it's 100% chance of working, 2nd 50%, 3rd 25% etc.

And TC, I've seen Protect work 6 times in a row before. It's literally all luck on that move after the first.

Not always, it's just very unlikely to work twice in a row.
