Makes stat changes have an opposite effect.
Contrary is an ability introduced in Generation 5. So far, 2 Pokémon have this ability.


In battle

This Ability causes all effects that would lower a stat of the Pokémon with this Ability to increase it instead, and all effects that would increase a stat of the Pokémon with this Ability to decrease it instead.

This also applies to self-inflicted changes, such as Curse and Leaf Storm. This Ability only reverses the changes when they are applied; it does not passively cause all existing changes to reverse; therefore, if the Ability Contrary is no longer in effect or the stats are Baton Passed, all existing stat modifications remain the same. Stats Baton Passed onto a Pokémon with Contrary are not reversed.

If a Pokémon with Contrary uses Belly Drum, its Attack will be lowered to -6 stages (although the message will still say that the user maximized its Attack); even if the user's Attack is already at -6 stages, Belly Drum will deduct HP. Even if the user has Contrary, Belly Drum fails if the user's Attack is already at +6.

If a move used by a Pokémon with Mold Breaker would induce a stat modification in a Pokémon with Contrary, the stat modification will not reverse.

Outside of battle

Contrary has no effect outside of battle.
