Poison Powder (Japanese: どくのこな PoisonPowder), formatted as PoisonPowder prior to Pokémon X and Y, is a non-damaging Poison-type move introduced in Generation I.

It appears to be a poisoning counterpart to Sleep Powder and Stun Spore, as the accuracy, Contest group, appeal, effects, Japanese names, and animation are the same or very similar. They are also usually learned at the same level or in a similar pattern.

Effect

Generations I-V

PoisonPowder poisons the target. Poison- and Steel-type Pokémon are unaffected by PoisonPowder. It also does not affect targets with Immunity as their Ability.

PoisonPowder can also be used as part of a Pokémon Contest combination, with the user gaining three extra appeal points if move Sweet Scent was used in the prior turn.

Generation VI onward

Grass-type Pokémon, Pokémon with Overcoat, and Pokémon holding the Safety Goggles are now immune to Poison Powder.

Poison Powder 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.

If powered up by a Poisonium Z into Z-Poison Powder, the user's Defense stat rises by one stage.
