Status Ailments such as Sleep, Stop, and Poison are detrimental to you in battle. When selecting accessories, It is best to use one that prevents Status Ailments to protect your character.
Status Ailments are powerful as they both affect allies and enemies alike. Bio (Poison Materia) deals continuous damage that hits any enemy. Thus, Bio is the best choice among all negative status ailments to inflict.
Sleep (Binding Materia) is a powerful spell that is highly useful in battle, as it prevents foes from executing any harmful action until awakened. However, it is necessary to check in advance whether it will work against an enemy by using the Assess Materia (this is true of all status ailments).
Beneficial Status Effects provide buffs to Characters. Using buffs help you increase your survivability in battle.

Need the next part of this game, I am so sad.
If you complete the game and go to Chapter 17 with Chapter Select, you will be able to find Chadley near the start of the chapter and access all the VR missions with any three characters of your choice. Hope this helps!
