||This move effect may be in need of research. |
Reason: Will the animation still play if used on a pure Psychic-type? Does it fail on a substitute?
You can discuss this on the talk page.
Magic Powder changes the target's type to pure Psychic. The effect lasts as long as the target remains in battle; however, changing form or transforming overrides the effect.
Magic Powder fails if the target is already a pure Psychic type or if its Ability is RKS System.
Being a powder move, it will fail on Grass-type Pokémon and Pokémon with the Ability Overcoat or held Safety Goggles.
