Effect

In battle

Corrosion allows the user to inflict poison on any Pokémon regardless of type, allowing them to poison Poison and Steel-type Pokémon.

If a Poison- or Steel-type Pokémon with Corrosion holds a Toxic Orb, it will badly poison itself. A Pokémon with Corrosion can poison Poison- and Steel-type Pokémon if it uses Fling while holding a Toxic Orb or a Poison Barb.

This Ability has no effect on Toxic Spikes. It does not allow the Pokémon with this Ability to poison a Pokémon with Immunity. Corrosion does not allow the Pokémon with this Ability to damage Steel-type Pokémon with Poison-type moves.

If the Pokémon with this Ability uses a move, and that move gets reflected by the target due to Magic Coat or Magic Bounce, the reflected move will not be able to poison Steel- or Poison-type Pokémon. If a Poison- or Steel-type Pokémon with this Ability poisons a target with Synchronize, Synchronize will not be able to affect the Pokémon with this Ability.

If the Pokémon with this Ability uses Magic Coat to reflect a status move that inflicts poison, the reflected move will be able to poison Steel- or Poison-type Pokémon.

Outside of battle

Corrosion has no effect outside of battle.
