Baneful Bunker is a Poison-type move introduced in Generation VII. It is the signature move of Toxapex.

Description

Games Description
SMUSUM
SWSH
In addition to protecting the user from attacks, this move also poisons any attacker that makes direct contact.

Effect

While mostly functioning identical to Protect, if a Pokémon without an immunity to Poison (either due to being Poison or Steel type, having an ability such as Komala's Comatose or Immunity, or having another status condition) makes contact with the user, they become poisoned.

If Baneful Bunker blocks an attack, the effects of the user's Rocky Helmet, Rough Skin, and Iron Barbs will not activate. If Sucker Punch is used on a Pokémon that has used Baneful Bunker, the move fails and the Pokémon does not get poisoned. When used with a poisonium Z,the user's Defense stat rises by one stage.
