I have a probably very stupid question...In Pokémon X and Y,I participate in a lot of multi battles and Single battles..I know the move fling does damage depending on the item,but let's say the item is a toxic orb,can I fling it and poison a teammate or opponent,Same with berries,does the effect,effect the other Pokémon?

If you Fling a Toxic Orb at a target it will always Toxic-ify it.
Make sure your target (the traget can be either a teammate or an enemy) isnt a Steel type because they are immune to Poison, other than that it should work.
EDIT- if your target has a status condition and you fling a Lum Berry (or the respective berry for that condition) it will cure your target, same goes for berries that boost stats, If a Pokemon is under 1/4 of it's HP and you fling let's say a Salac berry at them, their Speed will go up.

Yes you can poison your teammate with fling. It's just like attacking the opponent, except your attacking your teammate. If your target is a steel type, then of course the target won't be poisoned
