PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A

While grinding my Umbreon with Synchronize in White 2, an Audino used Secret Power on him and sent him to sleep. However, the Audino did not fall asleep as well. Does Sleep not affect Synchronize? I tested the theory on a Mareep and when it used Thunder Wave, it paralyzed them both. What happened?

When a Pokémon with Synchronize is burned, paralyzed, or poisoned by another Pokémon, that Pokémon will be inflicted with the same status condition.

Synchronize will only activate with the above conditions, which does not include the sleep status.
