Natural Cure (Ability)
Natural Cure heals any status conditions upon switching out.
This effect will occur if Natural Cure is the Pokémon's Ability in battle when it switches out and is not suppressed; a Pokémon that obtained the Ability with Trace will have its status condition cured when it switches out, whereas a Pokémon which has Natural Cure but has been affected by Gastro Acid will not.
Generation IV onward
Natural Cure also heals any status conditions upon completing a battle (if it was in battle at the end of the battle).
Outside of battle
From Generation IV onward, Natural Cure automatically heals status conditions upon the end of a battle.

In the anime
In The Power of Us, during two simultaneous disasters in Fula City, Toren and his fellow Scientists attempted to create an elixir out of Natural Cure in the Pokémon Research Pavilion. However, a blackout occurred before the solution could be finished, forcing Toren to improvise with Team Rocket's Lum Berries.

- Due to the user interface displaying how many of the opponent's Pokémon have status conditions, even though Natural Cure does not have an activation message, it is possible to deduce that a Pokémon had Natural Cure the next time the Poké Balls representing the opponent's party are displayed.
