    I've caught another bug in my net. I don't know how this happened but on turn 29, me and my opponent used Gastro Acid on each other. Then next turn we swiched Pokemon. My Giratina has Prankster and opponent has Imposter Chansey. I'm sure Imposter works regardless of which Pokemon was switched first. I think Gastro Acid still had effect from previous turn. My Giratina wasn't my Blissey Imposter my opponent's Giratina I'm sure. Maybe having Giratina on both teams effected it.

    EDIT: Actually, looking at this log closer: The imposter pokemon went out first, against an already transformed pokemon.

    It's Drapion and Blissey out on the field. Blissey is transformed.
    Drapion is sent back and Chansey is sent out against transformed Blissey.
    Then Blissey comes back and Giratina is sent out.

    I'm not entire sure how it works in game, but I'd assume the ability would activate right on send out, which means in this case it fails because its Imposter vs Transformed pokemon.

    So it doesn't look like it was a bug. I thought Imposter takes effect when both party switches had finished just before the turns are allowed to be made, even my opponent was confused. Sorry that I wasted time, mate.

    I'm not entirely sure on the game mechanics, so this could still be a valid bug.

    But you have things like:
    and
    where the ability activates immediately after it is switched in.

    Forgot about this thread, but I just tested it and confirming what we have is correct. When multiple switches occur, the ability is set up before the next Pokemon comes out. As such, when Chansey is sent out, Imposter activates (or rather, fails to) because the opponent is an invalid one to transform against. The actual game likely doesn't know that there are more switches occurring, so it won't delay activating the ability.
