The user of this move will be unaffected by moves that change status or alter stats, and will instead bounce the move back to the user. As a general rule of thumb, these moves are:
- Any move that only induces status, such as Thunder Wave or Toxic
- Any move that only lowers the target's stats, such as Sand Attack or Heart's Eye
- Block and Jamming
- Charming Look
- Leech Seed
This move has a priority of +4.
Keep in mind that Taunt is not reflected by Magic Coat, even though Charming Look is.
