PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A

As stated in Bulbapedia, "Corrosion does not allow the Pokémon with this Ability to damage Steel type Pokémon with Poison-type moves". That is for Steel types, but I'm wondering, if for example, Salazzle attacked Muk with Poison Jab (30% chance of poisoning), can this poison Muk or is this ability only useful for Toxic & Fling?

Note: Fling is a Dark-type move.

Thank you for those who answered!

Yes, when Salazzle attacks with moves that have a chance to poison, this poison chance is still calculated, even for poison types

Cool! Thank you for testing it. Fortunately, it is not just limited to Toxic and Fling.
