Poisoned, also known as Poison and abbreviated as PSN, is a Status Effect. Badly Poisoned also exists, which is considered an upgrade of normal Poisoning and has slightly different effects.

Main Series

Generation I

In Generation I the Poisoned Pokémon in question will lose 1/16 of the HP the Pokémon had at full health. Every four steps, the Pokémon will lose one Hit Point until it faints.

Badly Poisoned Pokémon will take the same amount of damage as normal Poisoning the first turn, but then will lower with each hit taken that turn. If the Pokémon is switched out, the badly poison will turn into normal Poisoning. Outside of battle, the badly poison turns into normal Poison, and takes that effect.

A skull and crossbones flash over the Poisoned Pokémon's head when losing health.

Generation II

In Generation II the Poisoned Pokémon instead loses 1/8 the amount of HP the Pokémon had at full health. Every four steps, the Pokémon will lose one Hit Point until it faints, as in Generation I.

Badly Poisoned Pokémon starts at 1/16, as in Generation I, but at the end of each turn will lower instead of taking damage. Other than that, it is the same as Generation I.

Generation III

In Generation III, normal Poisoning is exactly like in Generation II.

Badly Poisoned Pokémon, however, changed slightly. When switched out, the badly poisoning will remain, but will stay at 1/16 until switched back into battle.

The Poisoned Pokémon now turns purple when losing health.

Generation IV

In Generation IV, normal Poisoning is exactly as in Generation II, with one small change. Outside of battle, once the Poisoned Pokémon is brought to one Hit Point, the Pokémon will be cured of the Poisoning.

Badly Poisoning is exactly like Generation II, but with the change stated above.

The Poisoned Pokémon now turns purple when losing health.

Generation V

In Generation V, normal Poisoning is exactly the same as in Generation II, with two small changes. Pokémon no longer lose damage outside of battle through Poisoning. Poisoned Pokémon also receive double damage for the moves Hex and Venoshock.

Badly Poising is exactly the same as in Generation II, but with the change stated above.

Side Games

Pokémon Mystery Dungeon Series

In the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series, when a Pokémon is Poisoned, it takes damage every ten turns and is prevented from regenerating HP. Poisoned disappears when you go to the next floor.

Pokémon TCG Games

Since both games follow the Trading Card Game rulings, Poisoned is the same as in the TCG. With every turn that passes, the Pokémon Poisoned is given one damage counter. Poisoning can only be treated by retreating to the Bench or by evolving a Pokémon.

Trading Card Game

In the Trading Card Game, there are five status effects which mimic common ones from the Games. With every turn that passes, the Pokémon Poisoned is given one damage counter. Poisoning can only be treated by retreating to the Bench or by evolving a Pokémon.

Anime

In the Anime, Pokémon and People alike have been Poisoned.

  • In Sharpedo Attack!, while Brock is battling a Sharpedo it suddenly faints. He examines it and realizes that it's poisoned from Seviper's Poison Tail. Brock does everything he can for Sharpedo, but they don't have any medicine, and after a while, Sharpedo's poison gets cured.
  • In Keeping In Top Forme!, Shaymin, Piplup and Pikachu all get poisoned, Shaymin from getting exposed to some kind of poison and Pikachu and Piplup from a wild Shroomish using PoisonPowder on them. Shaymin is cured by Brock who uses a Pecha Berry on it, and Pikachu and Piplup are cured by Shaymin's Aromatherapy.
  • In A Real Rival Rouser! during a battle between Paul and Ash, Paul's Drapion uses Toxic Spikes which poisons every Pokémon Ash sends out (regardless of type), Ash's Buizel, Staraptor, Torterra, Infernape and Gliscor get poisoned from the Toxic Spikes.

While Iris took care of the sick Pokémon, Ash, Oshawott, and Cilan went to a nearby pond to get Remeyo weed for Iris's poison remedy. After fending off the pond's Tympole, Ash and Cilan capture the Tympole's leader, Palpitoad, and its ally, Stunfisk, respectively, allowing them access to the herbs.
