Corrosive Gas (Japanese: ふしょくガス Corrosive Gas) is a non-damaging Poison-type move introduced in Generation VIII.


  This move effect may be in need of research.
Reason: Does Corrosive Gas affect Arceus' Plates or Ogerpon's Masks?
You can discuss this on the talk page.

Corrosive Gas removes the targets' held items for the rest of the battle (even if switched out). Held items removed by Corrosive Gas cannot be recovered by Recycle or Harvest.

Corrosive Gas does not affect an item held by Pokémon with the Sticky Hold Ability, or if it hits a Pokémon's substitute. It also does not affect a Griseous Orb, Drive, Memory, Rusted Sword, or Rusted Shield held by Giratina, Genesect, Silvally, Zacian, or Zamazenta, respectively.

Generation VIII

Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl
