If a pokemon has Magic Guard, can it get poisoned?

I know it wouldn't take damage from the poison, but could it get poisoned?

Best answer

It can get poisoned but won't take any damage (EDIT: Also no damage from burns).

Besides giving Pokémon with Magic Guard a life orb (also no damage loss but powered-up attacks) giving them a toxic orb is a nice strategy to prevent all other primary status ailments (burn, paralyze, sleep)
