Switching, full {{status|paralysis}}, and using a multi-turn move will not reset the last amount of damage done, allowing Counter to counter itself as well as self-inflicted recoil damage. However, if both active Pokémon use Counter during the same round, both attacks will fail. An attack absorbed by a {{m|substitute}} can be countered for the amount of damage it would have done to the user had the user not had a substitute.
 
If an HP-restoring or battle item is used on the opponent during the same round that Counter is used, [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_pyUJZtiGNU| Counter will counter the item].
 
In Stadium, switching, full paralysis, and using a multi-turn move reset the last amount of damage done, so Counter can't counter itself or self-inflicted recoil damage if the opponent does not make a move on its following turn.
