Toxic (Japanese: どくどく Excessive Poison) is a non-damaging Poison-type move introduced in Generation I that badly poisons the target. It is TM06 in every generation so far.

Effect

Generation I

Toxic badly poisons the target, and has an accuracy of 85. Each time the target takes recurrent damage, the damage will equal N max (1, int (0.0625 × Max HP))

N starts as 1 and increases by 1 each time the afflicted Pokémon endures recurrent damage (including by Leech Seed). The target will lose 1/16 of its maximum HP during the first turn of being poisoned. During the second turn of being badly poisoned, the target will lose 2/16 (1/8) of its maximum HP. The target will then lose 3/16 of its maximum HP, in its third turn of being badly poisoned. The target will continue to lose an extra 1/16 of its maximum HP at the end of each consecutive turn. Toxic can cause the target to faint in six turns, using up 1 PP.

The N value of Toxic resets via Haze, switching or ending the battle, but not by Rest. If a Pokémon uses Rest and becomes either normally poisoned, burned, or Leech Seeded without switching out, the N value will influence the amount of damage done. The damage will increase each time recurrent damage is done. However, if the target becomes badly poisoned again, the cumulative value will be reset. Unlike other types of damage, the recurrent damage done by Toxic can exceed the target's current HP.

In Pokémon Stadium, the N value of Toxic will be reset by Rest.

Generation II to IV

All effects are the same, except Toxic is now separate from other forms of recurrent damage (no longer builds from them or affects their strength). Toxic cannot affect Steel-type Pokémon.

Generation V

Toxic now has an accuracy of 90.

Generation VI

Toxic will never miss if used by a Poison-type Pokémon, even during the semi-invulnerable turn of moves such as Fly and Dig.

Pokémon Rumble Blast

In front of the user, an area in which all Pokémon who go into it will be Badly Poisoned.
