If someone uses Psyshock, can you retaliate with Counter or Mirror Coat?

Mirror Coat, because Psyshock is a special move, regardless of it dealing damage based on the target's defence.

>If the last amount of damage done to the user before the use of Mirror Coat is greater than 0 and was dealt by a Special move, Mirror Coat will do twice as much damage as taken by that attack to the opponent.

Mirror Coat

Regardless if it hits your defense or special defense, the move is still a 'Special Move'. As such, Mirror Coat will be the one to use.

You can counter with mirror coat, since Psyshock is a special move. Also, Psyshock does not trigger abilities like static and poison point. Hope I helped!
