This Ability causes all effects that would lower a stat to increase it instead, and all effects that would increase a stat to decrease it instead.
This also applies to self-inflicted moves, 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they are applied; it does not passively cause all existing changes to reverse; therefore, if the Ability Contrary is no longer in effect or the stats are Baton Passed, all existing stat modifications remain the same.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.
