Paralysis is a major status condition but confusion isn’t
So is it possible to get both confused and paralysed at the same time?

If this question is a repeated one, I’m sorry about that

short answer: yes, confusion is it’s own thing and technically not a status condition as it heals when you switch
source: google

It is a status condition, but it's referred to as a minor status condiotion, posion, burn, and those are called major status conditions
Isn’t that kind of broken then?
You could Paralyse them and then confuse them
So they could either not move or smack themselves
Confusion gets cured when the Pokemon switches, and it has only a 1/3 chance of hurting itself each turn if it doesn't switch.
