The foul fluid from its rear is so revolting that it can make people feel queasy up to a mile and a quarter away.
Skuntank's Diamond entry:
It sprays a vile-smelling fluid from the tip of its tail to attack. Its range is over 160 feet.
It protects itself by spraying a noxious fluid from its rear. The stench lingers for 24 hours.
It attacks by spraying a repugnant fluid from its tail, but the stench dulls after a few squirts.
However, the games seem to be confused about Skuntank's smell. Here's Pearl:
It sprays a stinky fluid from its tail. The fluid smells worse the longer it is allowed to fester.

It's a skunk. Did you expect anything better? --- Kraden: If my pigeon threw fireballs, perhaps it would put you out of a job! Tyrell: What, are you saying that I'm dumber than some bird?!

It isn't saying the range of stink is 160 ft, it's range of spray is. There is a huge difference there. --- We all ate the biscuits, Fighter. We can all see through time. [ER]

They both stink. badumpish --- I'm not easily impressed; I'm usually oblivious to whatever's in front of me. Stunfisk is the epitome of monstrous majestic legendary creatures that spew fire.

Skuntank's HGSS entry is saying that the stench of each consecutive spray gets duller, which does not conflict with the Pearl's statement about the lingering stench of a singular squirt. It just means the foul juice is used up on the initial discharge. --- "Hello. My Name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die." - Mandy Patinkin, [The Princess Bride]
