PoisonPowder (Japanese: どくのこな PoisonPowder) is a non-damaging Poison-type move introduced in Generation I.

It appears to be a poison counterpart to Sleep Powder and Stun Spore, as the accuracy, Contest group, appeal, effects, Japanese names and animation are the same or very similar. They are also usually learned at the same level or in a similar pattern.

Effect

PoisonPowder poisons the target.

Trivia

  • Its description states that it 'may' poison the target. The word choice is likely alluding to its 75% accuracy since, as a status move, it will always poison the target if the attack is successful.
  • Although a Poison-type move, the only Poison-type Pokémon that can learn it are primarily Grass- and Bug-type.
    • Furthermore, the only Poison-type that can learn this move by level up are all Generation I Pokémon.
