PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A

As we know, Bite and Crunch after Gen 4 became physical moves that make contact, but the moves were special in Gen 2 and 3 and I just want to know if they would trigger Poison Point, on a Nidoking, for example.

When a Pokémon with this Ability is hit by a move that makes contact, there is a 30% chance that the attacking Pokémon will become poisoned.

Contact moves

Bite and Crunch are on this list, so they can trigger Poison Point.

Also note that Abilities and Contact moves (and, by extension, Poison Point) did not exist in Gen 2. :P
