Ok, I've done some more thorough testing with bide.
Confusion doesn't hold in the release of energy until it wears off, like I originally thought. If you hit yourself on the turn it was going to unleash, it messes up the bide, and things continue normally.
Par doesn't automatically happen if you are using bide, but if you are FP at any time during the bide attack, it will reset to normal.
If a Pokemon gets put to sleep after using bide, the bide turns get "held in" (like I originally thought with confusion). Any energy that bide absorbs before getting put to sleep disappears, and if the pokemon is attacked while sleeping, it won't count as bide energy. When the Pokemon wakes up, it will resume the bide attack normally.
If bide gets disabled after being initiated, the bide attack will still function normally (after it ends though, you obviously won't be able to use it again until disable wears off). However, the animation (on stadium anyway) is altered slightly, it looks like struggle.

Pokegod... yeah, that won't look dumb in 10 years
