    When did you first notice the bug?:about 15th august 2016

    Have you been able to reproduce the bug?:yes

    Information (include relevant logs, replays, screenshots): When protean user uses entry hazards against a magic bounce pokemon, the protean pokemon does not change type (I have tested type effectivenesses so it actually doesn't change type rather than just not showing message for it). For example if protean greninja uses spikes against mega diancie it will NOT change to ground type. I have tested all entry hazards, all have same problem. However all other non damaging moves (that I've tried) do change type when bounced such as spore and topsy turvy.
    (Screenshots of various protean pokemon not changing type with hazards or changing type with other moves)

    (If applicable) Sources to confirm the presence of a bug (ex. Smogon): I couldn't find any reference to how protean and magic bounce interact anywhere, nor could i find any in battle videos where it happened. (Dare i say it? Might need tests)

    mechanics are correct, you don't change type if your hazards get bounced
