Such as Scald(Water type that burns), Stun Spore(Grass type that paralyzes) and Poison Powder(Grass that poisons) Those are the only ones I can think of, but I'm sure there's others. Thanks so much! Also, I think I'll count Sleep as normal.

For the purposes of this question, assume burn is Fire-type, poison is Poison-type, paralysis is Electric-type, and Freeze is Ice-type.

Status conditions don't formally have typings. I'm going to add some detail to the question, assuming your type for each status condition matches the one that is immune to it.
Thanks Fizz.

Hope I helped :D

"(Hits twice, so you could argue 40%)"

Iirc that's not how probability and some other legal Pokémon mumbo jumbo works? I thought that it was a bit more... complex?
It is, but each hit has a 20% chance to poison. So if both moves hit (100 accuracy, so if one hits they both hit). I am just saying that alltogether if each hit is 20% each, that makes 40% poison chance with the way Twin-Needle works. I would not argue that it was 40%, but some can and would, so I put it there :]
Thanks Polaris!
:) no problem
