Sooo...

Sleep, Confuse, Paralyze - What are the ways they can be removed? I know evolve, switch, and retreat remove them. Sleep you can flip a coin, but is that true of confuse and paralyze too?

Burn and poison - same question?

Thanks!

The status effects which you turn the Pokemon in a direction cannot be on-top of each other. Poison and Burn use markers, so they can stack together (burn and poison damage.)
So in total a Pokemon can be:
Asleep + Burned + Poisoned
Confused + Burned + Poisoned
Paralyzed + Burned + Poisoned

But not:
Asleep + paralyzed + confused

If a Pokemon is asleep and is then paralyzed, it becomes paralyzed and replaces the sleep condition.
An asleep Pokemon must wake up to retreat.
A paralyzed Pokemon has to wait till the next turn to be back to normal (retreat)
A confused Pokemon may retreat, but has to flip a coin if it wishes to attack.

No, sorry, I understand all that...

I am not asking about stacked conditions... say my pokemon was confused (just confused ). How do I make him unconfused? Same for the others.

What Renpuu said, really.

Those are the only ones that apply to all 5 unconditionally.

Ops

For some reason I thought the same coin flip that sleep used applied to all three. Ah well. Should not have won that last game cause I unconfused my dragon and wiped out his last three pokemon Ops.
