Magic Bounce (Japanese: マジックミラー Magic Mirror) is an Ability introduced in Generation V. Four Pokémon can have this Ability.


In battle

Reflects the effect of all stat lowering status moves (excluding Memento), non-damaging Status condition inducing moves, entry hazard moves, moves like Taunt and Torment, and so on back to the user. Does not affect targets with Teravolt, Turboblaze, or Mold Breaker. Magic Bounce will only activate once a turn. If two opposing Pokémon have this Ability only the target's Magic Bounce will reflect the move (i.e. the move will only be reflected once). If a Pokémon with this ability is not on the field due to being in the semi-invulnerable turn of Fly, Magic Bounce will not activate.

Magic Bounce reflects the same moves that Magic Coat does.

Outside of battle

Magic Bounce has no effect outside of battle.
