Awakened The Pokemon has been awakened and is powered up. Linked moves always result in critical hits, and the damage they deal ignores Abilities or unfavorable type matchups. Some Pokemon also Mega Evolve!

Bide The Pokemon takes hits for a time without attacking. The more damage it takes, the more powerful its attack will be when it strikes back.
Blinker The Pokemon can't see its surroundings at all. A Pokemon affected by this status will hit teammates with moves that wouldn't normally hit teammates, so be careful! Leaders can't be switched either! Enemies and Pokemon other than the leader affected by this condition will simply try to move straight forward. The status wears off after a while.
Boosted The Pokemon's Attack, Defense, Sp. Atk, Sp. Def, accuracy, or evasiveness has been boosted. The status wears off when the Pokemon steps on a Wonder Tile or moves to the next floor.

Clamp The Pokemon is clamped and is unable to move from its spot. It also keeps taking damage. The status wears off after a while or when the Pokemon warps or gets blown away.
Confused The Pokemon loses its sense of direction. It walks the wrong way, and its aim is bad, so it may attack its teammates by mistake. The effects of items also change. If you use the Health Orb, enemies become Healthy, too. The status wears off after a while.
Counter The Pokemon counterattacks when it takes damage from a nearby Pokemon's physical move. The more damage it takes, the more damage its counterattack causes. When the Pokemon can't attack, such as when it's affected by Sleep or Paralysis, it won't counterattack. The status wears off after a while.
Cursed The Pokemon's HP will deplete rapidly. The status wears off after a while. If the Pokemon gets Cursed again while it's already cursed, the number of turns till it recovers starts over!
