Magic Guard can be used to block status problems, recoil from weather, and hazards.

Overcoat can only block weather recoil.

So all in all Magic Guard>Overcoat

Magic Guard is for non weather teams.
Staus, Weather, all non attacking moves are blocked.

Overcoat is for weather teams.
Weather is blocked.

Magic Guard > Overcoat

But doesn't magic guard also protect the user from weather?
yes. (...)
So doesnt it mean magic guard is always better than overcoat? Or is it not?
It means that MG is yes, pretty much better than Overcoat.
