I mean, it can't have two status conditions right?

It will fail. Once a Pokemon has a status move, you can't give it another or replace it. If the move causes damage as well as a burn, the move will do the damage but will fail to burn.

No, it can't. Status don't replace each other.

But that's not the main Pokemon game.
Yup, I get that. But, just for clarification.
This should've been a comment.

I don't get what you mean.
