Poison Touch (Ability)

Pokemon with this ability All abilities Comments

Effect

In battle

If a Pokemon with this Ability uses a move that makes contact, there is a 30% chance the target will become poisoned. In Japanese versions of Black and White only, there is instead a 20% chance.

This chance applies independently of any moves that may have a chance to poison the target with their own effect.

If a Pokemon with this Ability uses a multi-strike move that makes contact, each hit has an independent chance to activate this Ability.

In a link battle including a Japanese version of Pokemon Black or White and a non-Japanese version or Pokemon Black 2 and White 2, the chance to poison is determined by the game of the player with the Pokemon with the Ability Poison Touch. As such, a Pokemon with Poison Touch owned by the player of a Japanese version of Pokemon Black or White will have a 20% chance to poison, whereas players of Pokemon Black 2 and White 2 and non-Japanese versions of Pokemon Black and White will have a 30% chance.

Outside of battle

Poison Touch has no effect outside of battle.
