From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Magic Powder (Japanese: まほうのこな Magic Powder) is a non-damaging Psychic-type move introduced in Generation VIII. It is the signature move of Hatterene.
Magic Powder changes the target's type to pure Psychic. The effect lasts as long as the target remains in battle; however, changing form, transforming or Terastallizing overrides the effect.
Magic Powder fails if the target has a substitute, is already a pure Psychic type, is Terastallized, or its Ability is RKS System.
Being a powder move, it fails on Grass-type Pokémon, Pokémon with the Ability Overcoat, or holding Safety Goggles.
