    "This move works even if the user has no item, but will fail if the user or target has had an item Knocked Off." Read a little more. Don't know, maybe this was written later, but read through once more.

    Does Heart Swap also swap Accuracy and Evasion boosts?

    If you Psycho Shift to a Pokemon with Synchronize, does it send the status back at you?

    If you Psycho Shift Toxic, does the counter remain?

    All of this was tested on SoulSilver.
    A wild Natu's Synchronize bounced a Psycho Shifted toxic poisoning back at my Noctowl, so yes.

    The counter reset when I Psycho Shifted a 3rd round toxic poisoning.

    If you try to Psycho Shift poison onto a Poison-type, Psycho Shift fails and your Pokemon remains poisoned.

    Also, not sure if this has been looked into or not, but it might be relevant: if you Psycho Shift status while holding Toxic Orb, Toxic Orb will then activate at the end of the turn.

    Just found out that mono with the ability magic guard are immune to the full paralysis condition. I noticed this when using MG clef on cart and not getting para'd once in 50 or so tries, and I did research online and saw yt user: chuggaaconroy state something about this as well as this specific bulbapedia article. If this was already stated then sorry, but I just wanted to point this out just in case it was not previously known.

    edit: sorry if 4 year bump is completely uneeded lol.

    Well bulbapedia could be wrong, like the Spiky Shield and Snatch interaction.

    But yeah the Magic Guard/paralysis interaction has been known for a really long time.
