The wielder does not take damage except direct damage from attacks, damage from Pain Split, or self-damage from confusion, Belly Drum, Curse, Substitute, and Struggle. Magic Guard does not prevent effects that cause the user to faint, such as Healing Wish, Perish Song, or Memento.
An amazing ability that can make a Pokemon ridiculously hard to kill. The main abuser is Reuniclus, who loves all the benefits from Magic Guard, such as the lack of Life Orb recoil, damage from weather, damage from status, meaning that combined with Recover and Calm Mind it is almost impossible to kill. Sigilyph also enjoys it due to it now being immune to Stealth Rock, and being able to spread burn around with Flame Orb and Psycho Shift. Alakazam is another colossal force with this ability, abusing recoil-free Life Orb attacks, negating its weakness to passive damage, and also enabling it to run Focus Sash viably.
