Toxic always KOs an opponent in six turns (after which it does (1=2+3+4+5+6)=21/16 of the target's HP in damage), right?
Wrong. It breakds down for low-level pokemon (which could become a factor in Pika or Petite cup). Because the damage rounds down, even seven turns wouldn't be enough to KO a 29-31 HP pokemon (who round dpown to a base oif 1 damage, for 1+2+3+4+5+6+7=28 damage after seven turns.)

On the other hand, for pokemon with under 16 HP, the base damage rounds up to 1. So....

Anyone with 29-31 HP takes 8 turns for Toxic to KO.
Anyone with 22-28 HP or 43-47 HP takes seven turns for Toxic to KO.
Anyone with 16-21, 32-42, or 48+ HP gets KOed in the normal 6 turns.
Anyone with 11-15 gets KOed in five turns
Anyone with 7-10 gets KOed in four
Anyone with 4-6 gets KOed in three
Anyone with 2 or 3 gets KOed in two hits
And anyone with only 1 HP would get KOed in one hit.

Of course, pokemon can't normally have less than 13 HP, but...

Forgotten in the river of time...
I've had an eternity to ponder the meaning of things...
And now I have an answer..."
