    "Effect" is a general term that encompasses everything that a card does except for doing actual damage.

    "Special Conditions" are a special subset of effects that all follow certain rules together, such as shutting down most (not all!) Pokemon Powers.

    Special Conditions include the following effects:
    Asleep
    Confused
    Paralyzed
    Poisoned
    Burned

    The details of Special Conditions are outlined in detail in all rule books, so I won't repeat them here.
    Best to get a rule book, for this and many other reasons.
