Own Tempo (debatable) glitch
« on: March 20, 2020, 09:04:44 am »
Shared by my Bulbapedia friend SnorlaxMonster. It involves Own Tempo and the Confusion status. It might be on their list of glitches. It also occurs in Gen 4 and Sword/Shield according to SnorlaxMonster. From how I gathered it only affected one turn?. SadisticMystic may know more, Edit: Found it there possibly; SnorlaxMonster also explained the glitch to me on Discord. SnorlaxMonster's channel has the SW/SH video.

Quote from: Bulbapedia history
If a Pokémon with a status condition that has an Ability that cures that status condition (e.g. a paralyzed Pokémon with Limber) is sent into battle as one of the lead Pokémon or to replace a fainted Pokémon, or gains that Ability due to Trace, it will not be cured of its status condition until after a Pokémon takes its turn (uses a move, switches out, etc.). However, it will be immediately cured of the status condition if it is switched in to replace a switched out Pokémon.

Likewise, if a Pokémon with Trace is confused due to obtaining it from Baton Pass, if it gains Own Tempo via Trace it will not be cured of confusion until after a Pokémon takes its turn (uses a move, switches out, etc.).

I'm making a compilation video of the base (underlying) glitch.
