Guts

Categories: Affects Status Effects, Raises Stats
If this Pokémon is inflicted with a status condition(i.e. poison, paralysis, burn and sleep) it will compensate by striking harder, the bearer's Attack stat being multiplied by 1.5 (the attack drop from being burned does not occur). This boost is retained for the duration of the battle as long as the bearer has a status condition, even if they are switched out of battle. The damage multiplier from Guts is lost if the bearer's Ability is changed or if the status condition is cured. This multiplier is not considered a true stat boost, and thus cannot be Baton Passed.

Boosts Attack if there is a status problem.
