Status

A status move is a move that, in the Pokémon games, does no direct damage, but instead causes a weather condition, status ailment, or changes the stats of a Pokémon during battle. This includes also other attacks which cannot be categorized under physical moves and special moves because of their unique or nearly-unique effects, such as Destiny Bond, Splash, Charge, and Recover.
