Poison Touch is a Pokémon ability introduced in the fifth generation. It can poison on contact.
If a Pokémon with Poison Touch uses a contact move, they have a 30% chance to poison the target. This chance is independent of a move's natural chance to poison. Due to this, the move can poison the target and force the Pokémon to use its status-curing hold item and then poison it again. Moves like Dragon Tail can inflict poison before switching out the enemy. Each hit of a multistrike move can trigger the ability to cause poison.
