Acid Rain is a non-damaging Poison-type move. It is an original Pokémon Sage move.


Acid Rain causes temporary weather, which damages all Pokémon who aren't Poison-type or Steel-type. Acid Rain also doubles the base power of Venoshock. This effect does not stack with the 2x damage from the poison status condition.


The user summons a toxic downpour lasting five turns. It damages all Pokémon except Poison and Steel types.
