Poison Gas (Japanese: どくガス Poison Gas) is a non-damaging Poison-type move introduced in Generation I.

Effect

Generations I-IV

Poison Gas poisons the target and has an accuracy of 55%.

Poison Gas targets one Pokémon in Double Battles.

Generation V

Poison Gas's accuracy is increased to 80% and now targets all adjacent opponents in Double and Triple Battles.

Generation VI onwards

Poison Gas's accuracy changed from 80% to 90%.

Poison Gas can also be used as part of a Contest Spectacular combination, causing Hex, Venom Drench and Venoshock to give an extra three appeal points if used in the next turn.
