Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

Does Magic Guard negate the stat drops in burn/paralysis?

Like if Alakazam was paralyzed will it still get that chance of hax and does it have the speed drop? Same with burn will it still drop attack?

Best answer

Gen VI:

Additional effects such as trapping from moves like Fire Spin and Attack reduction from a burn are not prevented. If paralyzed, a Pokémon with Magic Guard will suffer from the normal Speed reduction but cannot be fully paralyzed.


Gen V:

Magic Guard no longer grants immunity to being fully paralyzed

So in the Gen V battle mechanics, Alakazam (or any other Pokemon with this ability) will get parahaxed/ immobilised like any other Pokemon.
