Venom Drench (Japanese: ベノムトラップ Venom Trap) is a non-damaging Poison-type move introduced in Generation VI. It is TR91 as of Generation VIII.

Effect

Venom Drench lowers the Attack, Special Attack, and Speed stats of all poisoned targets by one stage. If no targets are poisoned, the move will fail.

Venom Drench can also be used as part of a Contest Spectacular combination, giving an extra three points if Poison Gas, Poison Powder, Toxic, or Toxic Spikes were used in the prior turn.

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