Effect

In-Battle

A Pokemon with Magic Guard cannot take any form of indirect damage. This includes damage from Hail, Sandstorm, Spikes, Stealth Rock, poison, burn, Leech Seed, Nightmare, Bad Dreams or recoil from Jaboca Berry, Rowap Berry, Life Orb and recoil attacks (Brave Bird, Double-Edge, Flare Blitz, Head Smash, Submission, Take Down, Volt Tackle and Wood Hammer). However, it will still take damage from Struggle recoil, confusion and Perish Song.

It can still be poisoned or burned, but will not take any damage (however the drop in Attack due to the Burn still applies). It cannot activate its opponent's Jaboca Berry or Rowap Berry.

Overworld

A Pokémon with Magic Guard will still take damage from being Poisoned outside of battle as normal.
