I'd need help to build a skill with the same effect of the pokemon move: Protect.
Here the reference:
Basically it's the highest priority among moves and it gives the actor a total protection from damage and target skills.
I'm using Yanfly Plugins (almost all of them) and Olivia Octobattle as a battle system.

And, if easy:
I'd like to create two different Protect: one which will only consider the Attack skill (the weapon-related skill) and one protecting from a specific category of skill (Special skill)

I tried to manipulate the Guard skill but probably a small Javascript code will be more efficient

You could probably do this without a plugin even. Just create a state that lasts for one turn and raises defense impossibly high, another one that does the same for MDF, and a pair of skills that apply one each.

that's an alternative, but that will still show the 0 damage dealt and it does not block impossible high attacks or different hp % changes. It also won't block status skills. I really want that skill to block any skill which targets on the user for the current turn.

If you make it similar to a guard state, there are traits. You can add state resist properties there.

If you want them to evade all attacks and spells, 100% evasion rate and 100% magic rate should help.

Make sure not to use any certain hit attack skills, or evasion won't work for that.

that would show "miss" and it won't account for 100% attack skills, which I have to protect from too.
Better a javascript code to make it work well I guess

I feel QSprite for MV is underrated. I basically am able to use my chibi sideview battlers I drew on the maps and have all the motions available. this'll help a lot with cutscenes.
I've figured out how to reasonably tall-ify chibi sprites on my editor. I like that making tall sprites gives me control on expressing how tall characters seem on the field relative to each other as well as better differentiate adult sprites from child sprites.
doing some wacky experimental stuff in MV right now :kaoluv: I cannot wait to drop what I've been working on
