Now that there are moves like Psyshock and Secret Sword (SA attacks Def), are we positive it's physical moves that activate Counter, and not the defense that would take it? Luna Tiger * the Arc Toraph 19:55, 25 July 2011 (UTC)
Just checked, my Wobbuffet's Counter didn't activate against a wild Duosion's Psyshock but Mirror Coat did. That makes it the classification of the move that counts, not the Defence stat it uses. - Blazios talk 20:49, 25 July 2011 (UTC)

So basically no.
