Take Cresselia. It knows Psycho Shift and is holding a Flame Orb.

Cresselia Flame Orb


Scenario 1: Opponent sends out Grumpig. Grumpig uses Magic Coat. Cresselia uses Psycho Shift. What would happen??


Scenario 2: Opponent sends out Espeon with the ability Magic Bounce. Cresselia uses Psycho Shift. What would happen??

I'm guessing they would just get burned as magic bounce doesn't reflect pschi shift I don't think and magic coat I'm not to sure.
You should check bulbapedia seen as that will have the answer.
I have checked. Have not found anything. I always check before asking questions.
