Something Unusual Happened in a Max Raid Battle

Something strange happened during a Max Raid battle.

I was up against a Pyukumuku and I had Eternatus out. Now, this Pyukumuku used Toxic on the player with a Solrock, which got poisoned. At that point, I didn't think much of it. However, later in the battle, it used Toxic on my Eternatus, and it got poisoned.

As I recall, unless you have a certain ability, you can't poison a Poison-Type Pokemon like that. Pyukumuku doesn't have that ability.

So, what happened? How was Pyukumuku able to poison my Eternatus? This is really confusing me.

It might have the move Soak, which turns your Pokémon's type into Water and then use Toxic in order to poison your Eternatus. Since it's a status move, you might've unseen it. That's the only option I see here.
 
^^You know what? I think you're right. I was able to catch that Pyukumuku and checked it's moves. Lo and Behold, it has Soak. I wasn't paying much attention at the time as I was watching YouTube while playing the game, so I'm not surprised I didn't notice that.

Not a bad strategy there, Pyukumuku. You really did catch me off guard there.
