Nintendo Ability: Contrary

Contrary

Categories: Harms the User, Raises Stats
Pokémon with this Ability are either too haughty or too bizarre in their habits to follow the same rules and conventions that other Pokémon do. Any stat boosts caused by moves (including self-inflicted ones) or Abilities applied to the bearer of this Ability are treated as stat drops instead, and in turn stat drops are treated as boosts. This Ability does not, however, affect modifiers that simply transfer (Baton Pass), copy (Psych Up) or reset (Haze) stat stages.

Makes stat changes have an opposite effect.
