Fainting is kind of a status problem, but not like the others, it's in a class of its own.

If your pokemon has fainted, you can do the following:

  • Use a Revive, Max revive, Revival herb, or Rare candy. (Note that revival herb will lower your pokemon's happiness)
  • Take your pokemon to the pokemon center. (this is the easiest and cheapest way)

Fainting is a status ailment, but you cannot use Full Restore to cure it.
