Status move

1 byte removed, 18:35, 28 November 2013
A '''status move''' is a [[move]] that, in the Pokémon games, does no direct damage, but instead causes a [[weather condition]], [[status ailment]], or changes the [[stats]] of a Pokémon during battle. This includes also other attacks which cannot be categorized under [[physical move]]s and [[special move]]s because of their unique or nearly-unique effects, such as {{m|Destiny Bond}}, {{m|Splash}}, {{m|Charge}}, and {{m|Recover}}. Status moves fall under the '''Other''' category in [[Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time and Darkness|Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time, Darkness]] [[Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky|and Sky]].
The majority of {{t|Normal}}- and {{type|Psychic}} [[move]]s, as well as the only {{type|???}}{{tt|*|Prior to Generation V}} move, {{m|Curse}}, are in this category. Very few moves of the other 1516 types are status moves; for example, the {{t|Dragon}} type only features one status move, while {{t|Fire}} only features two.
