So, what would happen if a Pokemon with the ability Magic Bounce used Magic Coat? Would Magic Coat reflect the status move? Would Magic Bounce reflect the status move? Or would Magic Coat fail? I know you wouldn't have the move Magic Coat on a Magic Bounce Pokemon but I'm curious about what would happen.

That question doesn't have what I'm looking for. I'm asking what would happen if say someone uses Spikes on a Magic Bounce Pokemon that used Magic Coat. Would Spikes be bounced back by Magic Bounce or Magic Coat?

I will answer this since I have a source. Magic Coat will activate, but Magic Bounce won't activate at all. So, Magic Coat will reflect the move, not Magic Bounce.

Magic Coat activates
Even with the ability Magic Bounce, Magic Coat will activate, and Magic Bounce does nothing.

Do you have a source?
