'Contrary' ability doesn't work

Recommended Posts

RoyalOcean5

The abiliy 'Contrary' is supposed to essentially rig every opponent's coin flip to be 'tails' as long as the Pokemon with the ability is active.

 

I'm using this on a XY58 holo promo Malamar and it has no effect whatsoever.

 

I hope this is the right place to post this.

The ability only affects your opponent's coin flips during their turn.  Were you expecting your opponent to flip tails on sleep flips between turns?  You should submit a game log next time.

Yes, this is the one thing that stops it from being OP.  If you could deny sleep flips, Malamar could actually be competitive in the right deck.  But as is...  Well, confusion is good, but dang, it can be undone easily.  And even setting it up requires another stage two.  And to have a good swap attacker...  You trade off another stage two (donphan) with high energy cost (Gengar-EX).  It's simply too situational, which is too bad, because it's a unique effect.
