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?

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.

Magic Guard
