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
Ice Shard

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!
