Reason: Information from BSL games. Do certain emeras cause status conditions?.

Status conditions are a game mechanic in the Mystery Dungeon series that have both similarities and differences to status conditions in the core series. Whereas in the core series a Pokémon can only be afflicted with one major status condition and a number of volatile minor status ailments, the Mystery Dungeon series allows Pokémon to be afflicted by multiple status conditions.

Status conditions can be caused by a variety of ways, such as from the effects of moves (such as the Sky Attack status, which is a self-inflicted condition due to the use of Sky Attack), IQ skills (such as the Pierce status from Pierce Thrower), and items (such as Mobile from the Mobile Orb).

Stat drops and boosts are also listed as 'weakened' and 'boosted' status conditions in-game. When the Pokémon's HP drops below 25%, the game also lists this as a 'low HP' status condition. However, these conditions do not interact as usual status conditions and are not considered bad status conditions.

Bad status conditions

Bad status conditions, referred to as status problems prior to Gates to Infinity, are status conditions with an adverse effect. These will trigger effects such as Guts and Marvel Scale. A Pokémon must have at least one bad status condition in order for healing to take effect. A Pokémon can be healed by:

In Super Mystery Dungeon, teammates may autonomously heal allies from certain bad status conditions such as sleep and paralysis.

Bosses are immune to certain status conditions and/or more easily heal from status conditions.

Status conditions

Sleep-related conditions

There are 5 sleep-related conditions in this category, though only Asleep/Sleep, Yawning, and Nightmare are considered bad status conditions. A Pokémon with the Early Bird Ability will have the duration of Asleep, Napping, and Nightmare statuses halved. Pokémon that have Insomnia ability will be immune to these status conditions.

(Note that the other effect of Rest, the healing of all HP after this status wears off, is not caused by this status.) 2-3 turns Rest

Major status conditions

This category is named as it draws its parallels with the core series. All the conditions in this category are considered bad status conditions. Aside from using healing items, moving up (or down) a dungeon floor will cure these conditions. If a Pokémon is inflicted with a major status condition while already being inflicted with one, the new major status condition will replace the old condition.
