Magic Room suppresses the effect of all items held by the Pokémon on the field. This effect lasts for five turns. Using Magic Room while it is already in effect will remove the effects of Magic Room immediately. Items regain their effects as soon as Magic Room ends.
Magic Room prohibits the use of items through
Natural Gift and Fling; however, it does not suppress the effect of Berries consumed through Pluck or Bug Bite. Magic Room does not affect effects that move items, such as Trick and Pickpocket. If a Pokémon uses Judgment, Techno Blast, or Multi-Attack while Magic Room is in effect, it will be a Normal-type move.
Magic Room does not negate item effects that affect
prize money, experience, effort values, or friendship, such as those of the Amulet Coin, Lucky Egg, Power Weight, or Soothe Bell. However, it does negate the Speed drop from the Macho Brace and Power items (such as the Power Weight). Magic Room cannot negate form-changing effects of items.
If a Pokémon is already locked into a move due to a held Choice item (
Choice Scarf, Choice Specs, Choice Band), if the held Choice item is removed while its effect is negated, the Pokémon will be affected by the Choice item lock glitch.
Magic Room has a
priority of -7, so will be used after all moves with a normal priority.
Generation VI onward
Magic Room now has a priority of 0.
Magic Room does not prevent Pokémon from
Mega Evolving with a Mega Stone, undergoing Primal Reversion with a Red Orb or Blue Orb, undergoing Ultra Burst with Ultranecrozium Z, or using a Z-Move with a Z-Crystal.
