PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A

So, I was battling a Team Plasma Grunt the other day on my Pokemon Black game (I have a Lv.28 Zorua, a Lv. 26 Pignite, a Lv. 25 Dewott and a Lv. 24 Servine). I used leech seed on a Patrat after it used Bide. The Patrat fainted because my Servine destroyed in the very next turn and didn't get to use Bide at all.

So, I was curious if moves like Leech Seed, status-inflicting moves and stat-lowering moves set off Bide?

This has nothing to do with my other question that I just asked like five minutes ago. Thank you.

Bide only works when you actually attack the opponent, meaning using moves like Ember triggers Bide, but status moves and ailments do not.

So, does Leech Seed?
Leech Seed does not affect Bide
