Venom Drench (Japanese: ベノムトラップ Venom Trap) is a non-damaging Poison-type move introduced in Generation VI.

Effect

Venom Drench lowers the Attack, Special Attack, and Speed stats of all poisoned targets by one stage. If no targets are poisoned, the move will fail.

Venom Drench bypasses accuracy checks to always hit, unless the opponent is in the semi-invulnerable turn of a move such as Dig or Fly.

Venom Drench can also be used as part of a Contest Spectacular combination, giving an extra three points if any of the moves Poison Gas, Poison Powder, Toxic or Toxic Spikes was used in the prior turn.

If powered up by a Poisonium Z into Z-Venom Drench, the user's Defense stat raises one stage.

Description
