Contrary(JP) is a Pokémon ability introduced in the fifth generation. Pokémon with this ability have reverse stat changes.

Description

In battle, Pokémon with Contrary invert all the stats changes it receives. If an effect would lower a stat, this Pokémon would increase that stat. If an effect would increase a stat, the stat is increased. Self-inflicted changes are inverted as well. Status effects like burn are not affected by Contrary. Stat changes carried by Baton Pass remain the same.

Stat boosts from Z-Moves are not inverted by Contrary, with the exception of Extreme Evoboost, which inverts those stat changes. Mist and stat protecting effects take into account the inversion before blocking a stat change. Pokémon with Mold Breaker ignore the inversion when using a move on an opponent with Contrary.
