From the official page:
Salandit emits toxic gas, together with flames, from the base of its tail. This poisonous gas has a sweet smell, and anyone who unknowingly breathes it in will become dizzy. Salandit is not a very powerful Pokémon, but its cunning nature allows it to battle fiercely by throwing its opponents off balance.

Salandit females not only release toxic gases, they can also emit pheromones that attract males of all species, including Pokémon and humans. Inhaling these pheromones may cause opponents to be controlled by Salandit’s will.

Salandit has the Corrosion Ability, a new Ability that no other Pokémon has possessed before. With the Corrosion Ability, it becomes possible to inflict the Poisoned status condition even on Steel- and Poison-type Pokémon.
The female's attraction sounds like some crazy stuff.

This Pokemon is one of the more interesting ones they've released in a long time, it has a lot of uses in the game and some of the things it's said to be able to do in the lore(?) are rather cool too. Not to mention that I'm a fan of it's design, I honestly think this is one of my favorite years of Pokemon (from a design perspective) for a long time now.

I'm tempted to say it sounds like almost like bad fanfiction :^)

Should be interesting.
