The '''paralysis''' condition (PAR) (Japanese: '''まひ''' ''Paralysis''), also called '''paralyze''' in the [[Pokémon Stadium series]], causes a Pokémon to be unable to [[move|attack]] ("fully paralyzed") a quarter of the time. Additionally, its {{stat|Speed}} is reduced to 50% of its previous value (25% prior to [[Generation VII]]). Many moves that cause paralysis are {{type|Electric}}. {{type|Ground}} Pokémon can be paralyzed, but not by [[Electric (type)|Electric-type]] moves or by the [[Battle Arcade]]. In Generation V, Pokémon glow yellow when afflicted with paralysis; additionally, their animations become slower.
