Mirror Coat (Japanese: ミラーコート Mirror Coat) is a damage-dealing Template:Type2 move introduced in Generation II.

Effect

If the last amount of damage done to the user before the use of Mirror Coat is greater than 0 and was dealt by a Special move, Mirror Coat will do twice as much damage as taken by that attack to the opponent. Although Mirror Coat deals Psychic-type damage, its type does not alter the amount of damage it inflicts; although, it will not work against Dark-type Pokémon.

Mirror Coat is a decreased priority move. If the opponent does not use a decreased priority move during the round that it is used, Mirror Coat will go last regardless of the user's or opponent's speed. If the opponent also uses a decreased priority move during the same round, the attack order of the users will be determined normally.
