    Mechanics Bug Battle-server-wise

    Information (include relevant logs, replays, screenshots):
    The move Protect and its clone do not check accuracy for the moves that they successfully shield against.
    E.g.: Dynamic Punch hitting on a Spiky Shield should never miss and should take damage from it on every single successful Spiky Shield. And on our sim it can miss and avoid such damage.

    (If applicable) Sources to confirm the presence of a bug (ex. Smogon):
    Tested in game, using a non-No guard Dynamic Punch user on Spiky Shield, and the attack landed 16 out of 16. Tested with Protect too, never showing "attack misses" message.
