Magic Coat (Japanese: マジックコート Magic Coat) is a non-damaging Psychic-type move introduced in Generation III. Prior to Generation IV, it was the signature move of Spoink and Grumpig.
Generations III and IV
Magic Coat reflects any status move that inflicts status conditions back at that move's user. For example, Leech Seed, Attract, or Thunder Wave will reflect back to the target.
Generation V onward
Magic Coat can also reflect entry hazards and moves like Taunt and Torment.
Magic Coat reflects the same moves that Magic Bounce does.
If powered up by a Psychium Z into Z-Magic Coat, the user's Special Defense raises two stages.

- In Generation III, the status screen erroneously states that the move has 100% accuracy, even though it targets the user (thus it ignores accuracy and evasion checks). Any move reflected by Magic Coat still has to undergo accuracy and evasion checks as normal, however.
