Poison Powder (Japanese: どくのこな PoisonPowder), formatted as PoisonPowder prior to Pokémon X and Y, 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

Generation I

PoisonPowder poisons the target. Poison-type Pokémon are unaffected by PoisonPowder.

Generation II

Steel-type Pokémon are unaffected by PoisonPowder.

Generations III to V

PoisonPowder does not affect targets with Immunity as their Ability.

Generation VI

Grass-type Pokémon, Pokémon with Overcoat, and Pokémon holding the Safety Goggles are now immune to Poison Powder.
