Not once it's poisoned. You can only inflict another status on it before the toxic orb activates.

You have to get the burn off before his Toxic Orb can activate, otherwise no.

If it's already poisoned, nope.
Eldritch abominations from beyond the edge of the planes are easily intimidated.
However, they can be very intimidating themselves.

If it's not under any status, yes.

I love Will-O-ing on the switch.
I wouldn't just call the police, I would call the police. - SomeLikeItHoth

You can burn it on a switch or before the Toxic Orb activates.

If a Pokemon is burned, poisoned, paralyzed, frozen, or asleep you cannot change or give it another one of the statuses i just mentioned (Confusion, Attract, and Curse are different)

If you predict it coming in, or burn it when it doesn't protect and isn't already poisoned.
Man I get respect from the players you look up to, plus nobody loves you, so even when I die if you stand on my grave ima still be above you~!

Pretty hard to do.

You would have to be going for WoW while your opponent is switching in to Gliscor or something to that effect, then not miss, etc.

Toxic Orb activates pretty much immediately and most of these Gliscor's also run Protect. Catching them on the switch is about the only way to do it.
