Pressure
Ability 1
Pressure makes any attack targeted at the ability-bearer - regardless of whether it hits - use 2 PP instead of 1.
Infiltrator
Hidden Ability
Infiltrator ignores the effects of Reflect, Light Screen and Safeguard. In other words, if the opponent has used Safeguard, Toxic would still badly poison them.
