Magic Guard ability

Protects against damage not directly caused by a move.

Effect: This Pokémon is immune to damage not directly caused by a move. For example, this Pokémon takes no damage from from weather, recoil, status ailments, or spikes, but it still suffers from the Attack cut when burned, and a life-orb will still power up this Pokémon's moves without damaging it. Anything that directly depends on such damage will also not happen; for example, leech-seed will neither hurt this Pokémon nor heal the opponent, and Pokémon with a jaboca-berry or rowap-berry will not consume the berry when hit by this Pokémon. The following are unaffected: struggle, pain-split (whether used by or against this Pokémon), belly-drum, substitute, curse, moves that knock the user out, and damage from confusion. This Pokémon will neither lose nor regain HP if it drains HP from a Pokémon with liquid-ooze. If this Pokémon is badly poisoned, the poison counter is still increased each turn; if the Pokémon loses this ability, it will begin taking as much damage as it would be if it had been taking increasing damage each turn.
