Works well if it is the same type as the move used by the last Pokémon.

Reflect Type (Japanese: ミラータイプ Mirror Type) is a non-damaging Normal-type move introduced in Generation V.


Reflect Type changes the user's type to match the type or types of the target. Reflect Type works through Illusion, but fails when used by a Pokémon with Multitype. It bypasses accuracy checks to always hit, unless the opponent is in the semi-invulnerable turn of a move such as Dig or Fly.


Games Description
The user reflects the target's type, making it the same type as the target.
