Status moves are a little weird- most of them ignore the type chart, but there are some that don't. Frankly, it's an area that could use a little more consistency.

Here's the relevant passage from bulbapedia (https://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Type#Type_effectiveness):

Status moves typically do not employ type effectiveness; however, Ground-type Pokémon are immune to Thunder Wave based on type interactions, and Ghost-type Pokémon are immune to Glare based on type interactions in Generation II and III only. Furthermore, status moves may be unable to affect Pokémon based on type-related interactions other than effectiveness; for example, Poison-type Pokémon cannot be afflicted with poison and are thus unaffected by Poison Gas.
