Can a Pokemon have a status effect and leech seed on at the same time?

Does leech seed count as a status effect?


Yes this is possible. Leech Seed is technically a status effect. It is considered as a volatile status, which can be active alongside other status effects.

Here is the page where you can learn about Leech Seed.


Leech Seed is a status effect, but is volatile.

From Bulbapedia (https://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Status_condition#Volatile_battle_status):

Since [volatile status effects] aren't shown in battle as a status condition (having an icon) a Pokémon can be affected with multiple volatile battle statuses, volatile conditions and a non-volatile condition at the same time.
