    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.

          Retreating
          Evolving
          Using "Full heal"
          Using a "Super scoop up" and getting heads on the coin flip
          Having a ability which "Ignores special conditions"

          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.
