Status ailments are conditional agents that proteanly affect a Pokémon's ability to battle while operatively active in-battle.

Status ailments are most commonly transmissible through specialistic status moves; however, they also exist as subsidiary effects for various multifunctional moves, in addition to causative abilities.

Due to various developmental incompletions and other amendations that were deemed necessary for the transmodal transition to an MMO environment, many status ailments may be inexistent; if certain functions from the official games are not delineated on this page, it is tacit that it is the case with them. The PvP Ruleset may codify its rules against such usage depending on whether or not the bugged mechanics and usage thereof are considered detrimental to the balance of the PvP venue.

Status ailments

Status ailments are debilitative effects that are onset in-battle. While there is a modal variability of the effects—some of which are even unilaterally beneficial to the user—most impinge the opponent by either by insidiously damaging their health or by inhibiting them from executing any move.
