A consolidated response is made here to address the comments of Shi and Atrens concerning the manuscript "Observations of the galvanostatic dissolution of pure magnesium". We provide discussion to indicate that the claims made by Shi and Atrens are invalid from an electrochemical and logical perspective, and therefore there is no basis for Shi and Atrens claim that our work provides evidence for Mg+.
