Confusion is a volatile status ailment, which means it wears off after a few seconds. Confused Pokemon may turn around or harm itself. The power of confusion is identical to confused Pokemon using a physical attack with power of 40 on itself. In PTD, the confusion also has a type. This type is the same as the type of the move which caused the confusion. So a Ghost-type move causing confusion to a Normal-type Pokemon will do no damage, but the same move used on a Psychic-type will have super effective confusion damage.


Confusion makes the Pokemon slower. You can tell a Pokemon is confused because you can see stars whirling around its head.
