Magic Bounce (Japanese: マジックミラー Magic Mirror) is an Ability introduced in Generation V.
|| This Ability effect may be in need of research. |
Reason: If all opponents have Magic Bounce in a Battle Royal, will each reflect Spikes or only one?
Confirm that Z-Parting Shot works the same in v1.1.
You can discuss this on the talk page.
Magic Bounce reflects the effect of all stat-lowering status moves (excluding Memento), status condition-inducing status moves, entry hazard moves, moves like Taunt and Torment, and so on back to the user. Magic Bounce reflects the same moves that Magic Coat does.
Moves reflected by Magic Bounce can still miss. Magic Bounce can reflect status Z-Moves (but not their Z-Power effects) and moves used via Dancer or Instruct. If Parting Shot is reflected, the Pokémon that originally used Parting Shot has its stats lowered while the Pokémon with Magic Bounce is switched out; if Z-Parting Shot is reflected, the Pokémon switched in does not have its HP restored. A Dynamax Pokémon reflecting Parting Shot will still be forced to switch out.
Even if the Pokémon with Magic Bounce is immune to a move due to its type or species, (e.g. a Ground-type Pokémon targeted by Thunder Wave, or Dugtrio targeted by Telekinesis) Magic Bounce will still reflect the move. However, it will not activate if the Pokémon with Magic Bounce is protected from that move. Magic Bounce can reflect a move even if the move would fail (e.g. Disable used on a Pokémon that has not used a move or is already disabled) or have no effect on the target (e.g. Feather Dance when the target already has -6 Attack).
If a move targets multiple Pokémon individually (such as Heal Block or Growl), it will still affect each Pokémon that does not have Magic Bounce as normal, then each Pokémon that has Magic Bounce will reflect the move individually. If a move targets an entire side (such as entry hazard moves), if any Pokémon on that side reflects the move with Magic Bounce then the whole side is unaffected; even if multiple Pokémon on that side have Magic Bounce, only one of the Pokémon on that side will have its Magic Bounce activate.
Magic Bounce does not activate if the move is used by a Pokémon with Teravolt, Turboblaze, or Mold Breaker. Magic Bounce cannot reflect a move that was just reflected by Magic Coat or Magic Bounce. If a Pokémon with this Ability is in the semi-invulnerable turn of a move like Fly, Magic Bounce will not activate.
Outside of battle
Magic Bounce has no effect outside of battle.
