If my pet goes first and the Anubisath ability reflect goes second, does it make sense that the second ability which was not triggered before the first ability gets to reflect an action prior to its origination?
That's what happens when Anubisath uses reflect. It will reflect an ability in the same round it is used no matter the speed rating.
For instance, if you use a stun ability on a pet that has a higher speed rating, Anubisath will stun you.
Logic says that reflect should reflect the NEXT ability. If an ability came before that, how is it NEXT?
One could argue that reflect could simply ignore passed turns, and just wait until the opponent actually does something (and then reflect it).
I feel your confusion. The abilities in general are poorly worded. It would seem that if the ability that is reflected is infact the "next" ability, then the reflect should have a notation such as "this ability always goes first." Labels and such are sprinked in some places and not in others. The system is not entirely uniform. The same thing that drives me to collect and level pets (ocd) is what aggrivates me the most.
priority moves, straight outa pokemon.
you have your tiers
+1(surge, quick attack, blink strike)
0(claw, bite, etc)
not sure if there are any 'this move always goes last' but those would be a -1 priority modifier
It's strategy. If you think I'm going to reflect and I don't, then I've outwitted you. So it's not "anyone with half a brain" it's a battle of guesswork and wit.
And the cards are normally more in the hands of the reflector.
Then instead of using a damaging attack, you use a heal or something you know reflect won't -reflect-
