Why can't a pokemon be burned, poisoned, asleep, and paralyzed at the same time?

80/80

I always found it weird that when a Pokémon is poisoned, Scald no longer burns it, even though it's a jet stream of superheated boiling water. How come? Pokémon logic is weird.

Pants are not a "group activity"

Because how OP would that be?

Then I would carry Sleep Powder and Toxic on Venusaur and watch the foe sit there and die to Toxic without even hurting me.

Haven't you heard? Pokemon isn't logical

Also, name other games where you can be afflicted by more than one status ailment. Pokemon is pretty unique in that there are minor and major ailments. Like you can be paralyzed, confused, and under attraction(?) at the same time.

And why can pokémon only hold one item? Tentacruel has like a hundred or something tentacles, right? So he could hold dozens of items easily, depending on weight, of course.

And I mean, why are they HOLDING rocky helmet? Tyranitar could just put it on his head and then he can hold, say leftovers in the right hand and life orb in the left. And maybe all three scarves and an assault vest while we're at it.
