Magic Bounce is an Ability introduced in Generation V.

Magic Bounce
Flavor text
Reflects status-changing moves.


In battle

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 cannot reflect a move if the Pokémon with Magic Bounce is immune to it due to its type or species (e.g. a Ground-type Pokémon targeted by Thunder Wave) or 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 one Pokémon on that side has Magic Bounce 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.

Outside of battle

Magic Bounce has no effect outside of battle.
