Do Self-Destruct moves trigger the ability Aftermath?

Let's say i have a Skuntank with Explosion or any other Self-Destructive move (Is that even possible?). I use Explosion. Does Aftermath activate or....?

Best answer

If this Pokemon is KOed by a contact attack, the attacker takes damage equal to 25% of its max HP-Smogon

So no slef destruct or explosion will not activate seen as it is self harm, though if the opponent used Close Combat on you and killed skuntank, the opponent would loose 25% of maximum hp.

? no i did not know we had that yesterday did we not?
Well i may be in chat later i cant now im doing hmwk
Just ddropping in.
For Tournament, not DB League.
Oh in that case im sorry im yet to make the team.
I have time tomorrow to make it but if i dont by tuesday put your self through, ive had almost no time this week to make any teams.
An end of the year tourney might not have been the best idea, seeing as a lot of people have finals and such.
Im english ive had half term :D still got 2 months of school :( but ive been doing art coursework all week and now im pinned on finishing this story for english.
I have an hour tops to finish -___-
