Well, the thing is. I don't think any Pokemon is able to learn Protect AND Detect. It's just one or the other. And if it IS possible... then you'll eventually run out of PP.

Wrong. Protect is a TM of almost Double Team "learnability". The blocking moves all run on the same counter, so doing them over and over would be just like using Protect over and over. Nintendo already thought of it. Endure runs on that counter, too.

No, it isn't.

Edit: Here's why: Protect and Detect overlap each other, so Protect + Detect, etc. does not work.
