Toxic Spikes is a Poison-type move that covers the target's side of the field in toxic spikes. It can be used up to two times. One layer of Toxic Spikes will cause Pokémon switching in on the target's side to become poisoned, while two layers will cause them to become badly poisoned (like Toxic). Toxic Spikes has no effect against Flying, Poison, or Steel-type Pokémon, and grounded Poison-type Pokémon also will remove any Toxic Spikes that are present on that side. Rapid Spin can remove the entry hazard from the user's side of the field, while Defog removes the entry hazard from both sides of the field.
