Ailments arent always the end of the world; just cure them and carry on.

There a number of special Status Ailments which affect Pokémon in various ways. These can be caused by a number of ways, most notably moves, such as Sing.

Just like they can be caused, they can also be cured. Some moves can cure them; but items and healing your Pokémon at a Pokémon Center are the primary ways to cure status ailments.

The primary ailments are as follows:

Ailment Symptoms Cure
Burn The Pokémon takes some damage at the end of every turn and their Attack stat falls drastically. Burn Heal
Freeze The Pokémon cannot perform any action. Cures naturally after a number of turns in battle. Upon thawing; the Pokémon will immediately perform its selected move. Ice Heal
Paralysis The Pokémon sometimes cannot move, therefore losing their turn, and their Speed stat falls drastically. Parylz Heal
Poison The Pokémon takes some damage at the end of every turn. Antidote
Sleep The Pokémon cannot perform any action. Cures naturally after a number of turns in battle. Upon waking; the Pokémon will immediately perform its selected move. Awakening
