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

Fun fact. Today it's exactly 2600 days since I met my now gf for the first time. Sometimes being a programmer can be really useful. O:)
Is RPG Maker VX (rgss2) still relevant? xD
