Toxic Spikes is a non-damaging Poison-type move.

Effect

Toxic Spikes sets an entry hazard around the target Pokémon. One layer of Toxic Spikes causes opposing Pokémon to acquire the Poison status ailment upon switching in, while two or more layers causes opposing Pokémon to become badly poisoned.

Toxic Spikes has no effect against Flying-type, Poison-type, or Steel-type Pokémon or Pokémon with the ability Immunity, Levitate, Leaf Guard (during intense sunlight) or Magic Guard, or Pokémon holding an Air Balloon. However, a Flying or Levitating Pokémon or a Pokémon holding an Air Balloon will be affected if it is switched in while holding an Iron Ball, while Gravity is in effect or if Baton Passed an Ingrain.

If a Poison-type Pokémon that is not also a Flying-type or has the ability Levitate is switched in, it will absorb Toxic Spikes and the effect of Toxic Spikes will end. Also, if a Poison-type Pokémon that is also a Flying-type or has the ability Levitate is switched in holding the item Iron Ball or while Gravity is in effect, it will absorb Toxic Spikes. The moves Rapid Spin and Defog remove the effect of Toxic Spikes; Rapid Spin removes Toxic Spikes set around the Rapid Spinner, while Defog removes Toxic Spikes set around the target of Defog.

Toxic Spikes does not activate the ability Synchronize unless a Pokémon on the field directly causes Synchronizing Pokémon to switch in, such as by using the moves Roar or Whirlwind.

Magic Guard will not prevent the poisoning status from being inflicted, but it will prevent poison damage.
