Bug Getting Status effect even if immune to the attack

Recommended Posts

I recently made a training account for Sneasel with Exeggutor (Alolan) with all Psychic moves (PotatoSneasel). Sneasel is Dark type and is immune to psychic moves, BUT is somehow getting the confusion status.

Exeggutor (Alolan) attacks are: Confusion, Psychic, Hidden Power (Psychic), and Psyshock

Looking at what attacks give the confusion status. I believe the bug is in the Confusion move.


I definitely think it is a bug on the defense that if Ghost Pokemon are immune to Normal/Fighting moves. Ghost wouldnt recieve paralysis from Body Slam or confusion from dynamic punch because the move wouldn't touch them/they are immune to it.

I've noticed as well that even though a move does not hit a Pokémon, the status effect can still apply.
It happens with electric moves on a Ground-type Pokémon as well.
