Toxic (Japanese: どくどく Excessive Poison) is a non-damaging Poison-type move introduced in Generation I. It is TM06 in every generation so far.

Effect

Generation I

050Diglett.png This section is incomplete.
Please feel free to edit this section to add missing information and complete it.
Reason: Double-check that burn is really affected by N (after Rest heals a Toxic poison). If so, this fact belongs on the burn page.
Reason 2: Double-check whether being badly poisoned again after Rest really resets N. If so, poison's Generation I section needs to be changed..

Toxic badly poisons the target, and has an accuracy of 85. At the end of each turn when the target takes damage from the poison, the damage done will be N * x, where N starts at 1 and x is 1/16 of the target's maximum HP (rounded down) or 1 if that is larger. While a Pokémon is badly poisoned, N increases by 1 each time it takes either Toxic or Leech Seed damage at the end of a turn (meaning it may increase twice if a Pokémon is affected by both).

The N value for Toxic resets when Haze is used. When an afflicted Pokémon switches or the battle ends, N resets and the Pokémon's poison status becomes normal poison. However, if a badly poisoned Pokémon uses Rest to heal its status, N is not reset, meaning that if it then becomes normally poisoned, burned, or Leech Seeded, the last N value will continue to influence the amount of damage done (but will not increase); if the Pokémon becomes badly poisoned again, N will be reset.

In Pokémon Stadium, the N value of Toxic is reset by Rest.

Generations II to IV

All effects are the same, except Toxic is now separate from other forms of recurrent damage (no longer builds from them or affects their strength). Toxic cannot affect Steel-type Pokémon and targets with Immunity as their Ability.

Generation V

Toxic now has an accuracy of 90.

Generation VI

Toxic will never miss if used by a Poison-type Pokémon, even during the semi-invulnerable turn of moves such as Fly and Dig.
