I am looking to build the following moveset for my Dewgong, but I'm not sure if/how Toxic Orb works with Hydration.

Dewgong (M) @ Toxic Orb
Trait: Hydration
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Speed / 4 HP
Nature: Adamant

Rain Dance
Waterfall
Ice Shard
Facade

The idea is to set up with Rain Dance, allowing Toxic Orb to poison at the end of the turn. Then, I'd attack with a boosted Facade before Hydration heals at the end of the next turn. Rinse and repeat.

My question is: Would I be able to get off a Facade before Hydration cures the poison? Or does Hydration immediately cure the poison, disallowing me to get the boosted Facade? I guess I'm not really clear on the order of things. Thanks in advance for your help!

Turn 1: Dewgong sets up Rain Dance, Toxic Orb activates after Hydration would cure the status.
Turn 2: Dewgong uses boosted Facade. Hydration cures the poison, then the Toxic Orb activates again.

Hope this helped!
