Anime

  • In "Pokéball Peril", Professor Ivy had been paralyzed when she attempted to save a Raticate who wandered too close to a group of Vileplume who were releasing Stun Spore.
  • In "The Stun Spore Detour", Ash and Tracey both become paralyzed after inhaling Vileplume's Stun Spore. Misty sets out alone to find Salveyo weed to cure them. Jessie also suffered a similar fate which force James and Meowth to find Salveyo weed themselves. They ultimately make a plan to steal the Salveyo weed that Misty collected. But because she felt bad and knew that they were trying to help Jessie, she gave some of hers to them. The weed was boiled into tea and Ash, Tracey, and Jessie fully recovered.
  • In "Scraggy—Hatched to be Wild!", Scraggy becomes paralyzed after being attacked by a wild Galvantula. Iris and Axew retrieve an herb which she then crushes into a medicine to cure his status ailment.
