PowerShield is a PSI technique that only appeared in EarthBound Beginnings. It's learned by Ninten and Ana, and is not known by any enemies in the game. It casts a shield on a single specified party member which lasts for the duration of the battle. Under the effects of Power Shield, all direct damage, both physical and PSI, is nullified, with the damage that would normally have been dealt being reflected back at the attacker. It costs 9 PP to use.

PowerShield does not work during the fight with R7038 as well as the final boss battle against Giegue. When you try to use it, a message comes up with: "There was no effect on [Name]."
