How the heck can Toxic be Snatched?- unsigned comment from Ketsuban (talkcontribs)

Toxic on its own

Unless I am mistaken, if you lose 1/16th HP then 2/16th and so on, Toxic on its own kills in six turns. If this is incorrect in some way, please tell me why.- unsigned comment from Daverapp (talkcontribs)


I've accidentally taught toxic to my nincada via breeding from a Dustox. This info could be added to this page.- unsigned comment from Migrant (talkcontribs)

Nincada can learn Toxic via TM, so will know the move if the father knows the move. That's how breeding works. Werdnae (talk) 05:02, 28 November 2011 (UTC)

Stadium 2

The trivia about Stadium 2 makes no sense. Can someone who has or had the game clarify it or remove it? --ルレ 19:50, 27 April 2012 (UTC)

It's saying that if Pokémon A uses Toxic on Pokémon B, then Pokémon B knocks out Pokémon A in one hit the same turn, Pokémon B does not retain the badly poisoned status. Werdnae (talk) 20:40, 27 April 2012 (UTC)


Regigigas can learn Toxic by TM, even though the page clearly says it cannot. Not sure if I should make the change myself or just alert someone to it. Ssbmelee99 (talk) 23:24, 11 February 2014 (UTC)

This is the sort of thing that you should change yourself, in the future, but I handled it this time. --Wynd Fox 00:40, 12 February 2014 (UTC)

Does switching out reduce Toxic to normal poison?

"The N value of Toxic resets via Haze, switching or ending the battle, but not by Rest." - OK, but is the N value specific to each mon? If they switch out and then switch back in, does the counter reset? Are they still badly poisoned or just normal poisoned? Also does fainting (and later being revived) reset the counter?

Updated from the poison page. Some of that does contradict this page, though... Tiddlywinks (talk) 22:30, 7 March 2016 (UTC)

Poisons Steel-types in Gen VII!??

I was fighting a Salazzle with my Metang, and it used Toxic on Metang. The badly poisoned status was induced, but then it immediately expelled the poison with the dialogue used by Pokémon that are affectionate from Pokémon Amie/Refresh. I assume that's just because my Metang loves me, not because that happens with Steel-types in general. I didn't think Steel-types could be poisoned? Is this a new game change?

Salazzle has the Ability Corrosion, which allows it to inflict poison & bad poison on Steel and Poison Pokémon. - Kogoro - Talk to me - 03:43, 21 December 2016 (UTC)
