Confusion

 > Guides & Games  > Status

While confusion is not a true status, its battle effects are noteworthy and for the purpose of this guide will be referred to as a status effect, due to similarities. The confusion status effect, like attract, greatly hinders the opponent's ability to attack, reducing their chance for a successful hit to 50% before accounting for the accuracy of the move being used. When a confused Pokémon is not attacking its foe it is hurting itself. The amount of damage done is dealt as though it were being attacked by a move with a base power of 40. Type modifiers for damage are not accounted for. The afflicted Pokémon also has a 25% chance of using the selected move and a 25% of recovering from the status.

This effect will last 1 to 4 turns.

Pokémon with the ability Own Tempo cannot be afflicted by confusion. If this status is inflicted on a Pokémon with Tangled Feet their Evasion is boosted 1 stage (x.75).

Chatter, listed below, is unique in that its effectiveness is determined by the volume level you sPoké into the microphone with.
