Protect and Detect are basically the same move with different names.


Except Detect is better because of Imprison. Its disadvantage is having 5 less PP.

Who uses Imprison anyway?

People sometimes use it in doubles to prevent the opponent from using certain moves, especially protect and trick room.
To die is easy, to live is hard. Nobody ever wants to achieve what's easy.

Hardcore doubles players. Uxie is good for it also has trick room and dat bulk.

The universal response to a 'why would someone use this' for a status effect type move is almost always 'doubles/triples'.

Hilariously true.

Is it the boomburst going through the substitute or the infiltrator? Cause, I really thought it was the infiltrator.

Uh, both, I think. Sound-based moves like Boomburst ignore substitutes, and so does infiltrator.

Both. Sound moves like Boomburst and Bug Buzz bypass Substitute. Infiltrator bypasses Substitute in addition to Light Screen and Reflect (and Safeguard, I think).
