Magic Bounce (Japanese: マジックミラー Magic Mirror) is an Ability introduced in Generation V. Three Pokémon have this Ability, all of which are at least part Psychic-type. It is only available through the Dream World.


In battle

Reflects the effect of all stat lowering status moves (excluding Memento), non-damaging Status ailment 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). Magic Bounce reflects the same moves that Magic Coat does.

Outside of battle

Magic Bounce has no effect outside of battle.
