No actually your half right about the guard preventing status effects. Against the X-Yux, the Guard doesn't work against immobilization. Mario can still get immobilized even when guarding and I think there are more like the X-Yux in PM2 or the X-Yux are an exectption.--SpikeSpike Shield Badge PM.png

I have heard from a somewhat reliable source (a complete fanatic who has beaten the Pit before fighting Hooktail many times) that Bonetail's breath is not superguardable. Please remove that bit of trivia if someone finds it is actually possible. CashCrazed (talk) 20:35, 19 February 2013 (EST)

Actually, you are right - that attack is indeed not superguardable. It can be proven by activating that beta "debug badge" (a badge that automatically superguards every attack) and trying it on the Bonetail battle. --- ThePremiumYoshi
My was the bite attack. Saw that on many forums...whoops. CashCrazed (talk) 20:39, 19 February 2013 (EST) other forums say Breath is the one that can't be superguarded....Must I really go down into the Pit to confirm this one? My Superguard timing sucks anyway, so I probably couldn't discern the answer without, like you said, a debug device. CashCrazed (talk) 20:44, 19 February 2013 (EST)
I'm pretty sure it is the bite attack. --- ThePremiumYoshi

Is there any confirmation on how the Smorg's attacks can't be guarded in the Japanese version? The Shadow Queen's are at least confirmed on The Cutting Room Floor to be unsuperguardable, and I can understand that since she's the final boss. The Smorg, however, does not have that distinction - besides it being a regular chapter boss (albeit a late game one), being unable to superguard its attacks isn't mentioned on TCRF, nor is it mentioned on the Smorg's regular page here (to be fair, though, it's not mentioned on the Shadow Queen's page either). Can someone take the "debug badge" mentioned above and capture footage of it? I don't care if it's of bad quality like a camera in front of a computer screen, I just want a source - Both so I can see it in action and confirm it myself, and for future reference as well.
