Confusion item activation curiosity

Some parts of this article have not yet been fully reviewed by a member of this wiki's staff or QC team.

Data from the Internet can be inaccurate or false, and it is easy to misremember information. For this reason there is more likely to be incorrect information in this article. This template will be removed once the information is peer-reviewed and tested by a staff or QC member.

The Confusion item activation curiosity is a curiosity in the core Generation V, VI and VII games, and a possible glitch.


Held items including the Sitrus Berry, Figy Berry, Liechi Berry and Berry Juice do not activate if the Pokémon hit itself in its confusion to fall under the HP threshold. However, they will activate if the Pokémon is to take damage from another means (other than hitting itself in confusion) later.
