Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

Does Contrary change the effects of items and Natures?

0 votes

I was just wondering if a Pokemon's Nature was inverted if they had the Ability Contrary. For example: would a Jolly Pokemon have a buffed Special Attack and a nerfed Speed stat instead?
Also, if a Contrary Pokemon was holding an Iron Ball would its Speed be buffed or nerfed?

Thank you.

Only stat changes are affected by contrary. So natures and items act as they would on any other Pokemon.
