Poison Touch
Flavor text
May poison targets when a Pokémon makes contact.

Poison Touch is an Ability. Two Pokémon can have this ability.

Effect[]

In battle[]

If a Pokémon with this Ability uses a move that makes contact, there is a 30% chance the target will become poisoned.

This chance applies independently of any moves that may have a chance to poison the target with their own effect. If the attack's target holds a status condition-curing Berry, it is possible for a move's natural effect to inflict a status condition which the target's held item will then cure, only for the target to then be poisoned by Poison Touch. Poison Touch's chances also apply independently for each hit of a multi-strike move.

Poison Touch can poison a target hit by Dragon Tail or Circle Throw before it is switched out. Poison Touch can poison a target with Mummy before Mummy overwrites Poison Touch. Pokémon with Immunity, Shield Dust, or (during harsh sunlight) Leaf Guard cannot be poisoned by Poison Touch.

Outside of battle[]

Poison Touch has no effect outside of battle.
