Infatuated


Infatuated Status

Infatuation is a status condition that can be afflicted on a Pokémon in battle. Infatuation causes the Pokémon affected to be "Paralyzed by Love!" and makes it unable to move as long as both Pokémon are on the field.

Causing Infatuation

Infatuation can be caused by using the move Captivate or by the victim physically attacking a Pokémon with Cute Charm ability. Infatuation cannot be caused on genderless Pokémon or if the victim's Pokémon is the same gender as the enemy Pokémon. Pokémon with the Oblivious ability are immune to infatuation.


Example Scenarios

Enemy Pokémon: Male Defending Pokémon: Male Enemy uses Captivate > Defending Pokémon is not affected

Enemy Pokémon: Male Defending Pokémon: Female Enemy uses Captivate > Defending Pokémon is affected

Enemy Pokémon: Male Defending Pokémon: Genderless Enemy uses Captivate > Defending Pokémon is not affected


Curing Infatuation

The Mental Herb can be used to cure Infatuation. (Caution: IT CAN BE USED ONLY ONCE!) Since it can only be used once, it is not recommended to waste it, but instead wait until your Pokémon is no longer paralyzed.
