At some point (I believe it was sun/moon, but it could have been the gen before that), they decided poison types should have perfect accuracy on toxic.

They also decided that poison types should be able to hit with toxic through evasion moves like fly and dig, which I find kinda silly. Up until that point, moves that hit through them made sense. You're underground, of course an earthquake is is going to mess you up. You're way up in the sky, that's not going to stop a freakin' hurricane or big-ass lightning bolt from tearing you a new one. But toxic? There's no logic to that.
Not allowed to play poker with Tarot cards anymore. Last time I did, I got a royal flush and the Dark Lord returned.

Toxic will never miss if used by a Poison-type Pokémon, even if the target is in the semi-invulnerable turn of a move such as Fly or Dig. WELL WHOSE IDEA WAS THAT SECOND PART...

I can only imagine a Jigglypuff vomiting or throwing it's waste up in the air at the poor soul.

Really makes the toxic spam even worse. Feels like I'm 9 again and people are playing the game of who has the strongest Mewtwo and Toxic stall.

Toxic bypassing accuracy checks when used by a Poison type was a Gen 6 change.
