Pokémon with Oblivious also cannot be affected by {{m|Captivate}}.
 
IfIn Generation IV only, if a Pokémon is infatuated and has a [[status condition]], if its infatuation is cured by Oblivious, the status condition icon will disappear from the HP bar while it is in battle. The status condition will continue to take effect, however.
 
If the Pokémon with this Ability is infatuated and is holding a [[Mental Herb]], Oblivious will cure the Pokémon of infatuation before the Mental Herb has a chance to be consumed.<!--there is no way for a Pokémon with the Ability Oblivious and holding a Mental Herb to become infatuated in Generation III--> If the Pokémon with this Ability is holding a [[Destiny Knot]], the Destiny Knot will be activated before Oblivious cures the Pokémon of infatuation.
