[[File:Type Poison.gif|right]]
{{Type|Poison}}-[[Types|type]] [[Pokémon (species)|Pokémon]] have a toxic quality about them, be it because they produce venom ([[Ekans]] and [[Arbok]] for example), are poisonous plants ([[Bulbasaur]] and [[Oddish]] – these are dual [[Grass Pokémon|Grass]]-and-Poison types), or have some sort of general toxicity about them (such as [[Koffing]] or [[Grimer]]). Many Poison-type moves can cause the Poison status effect, which causes the attacked Pokémon to lose hit points each turn. The Toxic or 'badly poisoned' status effect causes the amount of damage done by the poison to double each turn. Some Poison Pokémon are considered to represent a forms of pollution such as Koffing/[[Weezing]] (air pollution) and Grimer/[[Muk]] (toxic waste). Poison-types are immune to the Poisoned status effect.
+
The '''{{type|Poison}} [[Types|type]]''' ('''どくタイプ''' ''Doku taipu'' in Japanese) is one of the eighteen [[Pokémon Types|Pokémon elemental types]].
==Weaknesses and resistance==
+
A type chart displaying the weaknesses and resistance of a Pokémon when damaged by a move. Empty fields are moves that do normal damage.
+
These Pokémon have a natural toxic quality, maybe they produce venom, are poisonous plants, or even represent pollution. They normally live in caves, marshes or similar places.
  +
  +
A very curious fact about Poison-type Pokémon is that some of them resemble ninjas. For example, [[Koffing]] is like a smoke ball, [[Crobat]] has a ninja's speed and secrecy and [[Toxicroak]] has paws that make it resemble a ninja.
  +
  +
The Poison type is related to the status effects Poisoned and Badly Poisoned, which are produced mostly by Poison-type moves.
  +
  +
Famous Poison-type Pokémon Trainers include [[Koga]], fifth Gym Leader of [[Kanto]] and then second member of the [[Indigo League]]; [[Janine]], Koga's daughter and new Gym Leader of [[Kanto]]; [[Agatha]], the third member of the [[Indigo League]] (her main type is [[Ghost type|Ghost]], but all of her Pokémon are Poison-type as well); and [[Roxie]], second Gym Leader in [[Pokémon Black 2 and White 2 Version|Pokémon Black 2 and White 2]]. Also, most villain teams in the videogames have Poison-type Pokémon, along with Dark types.
  +
  +

== Trivia ==
+
===Pokémon with Poison-type alternate formes===
* There has only been one Poison-type gym, which is located in [[Fuchsia City]] in [[Kanto]], although on April 12th 2012 it was revealed in CoroCoro that in Black 2 and White 2 there would be a Poison type gym in the renovated Unova, [[Virbank City Gym]].
+
The following alternate formes of some Pokémon are also of the Poison type.
*There is no poison type legendary, excluding [[Arceus]] holding a Toxic Plate.

==Relations with other types==
  +
*They're strong against the {{Type|Fairy}} type because fairies represent purity and poison the pollution.
  +
*They're strong against the {{Type|Grass}} type because trees and plants are damaged by the pollution and toxins, such as insecticides.
  +
*They're weak against the {{Type|Ground}} type because earthen and sandy features neutralize and mitigate the toxicity of poisons, making them less effective.
  +
*They're weak against the {{Type|Psychic}} type because mind can't be poisoned. Poison acts over the body, and the mind is superior to the body, while Psychic-type attacks are mental.
  +
*They resist the {{Type|Fighting}} type because when poisoned, a fighter or deportist loses strength. Fighters try to be healthy as most as they can and poisons can make them sick. It could also be said that since some Poison-type Pokémon have a gelatinous body, punches and kicks cushions the impact.
  +
*They were strong against the {{Type|Bug}} type in [[Generation I]] because of insecticides, toxins that killed bugs. However, since [[Generation II]], the Bug type resists them because many insects have developed resistance to some insecticides.
  +
*The {{Type|Ghost}} type resists them because you can't poison someone who's already dead, besides, the spirit doesn't have a physical form, thus toxins can't pass through.
  +
*The {{Type|Rock}} type resists them because since rocks aren't live creatures, poison can hardly damage them.
  +
*The {{Type|Steel}} type is immune to them because poisons cannot circulate through or penetrate metals, mainly because they're not organic materials.
  +
  +
==Trivia==
  +
*There are no Poison-type Legendary Pokémon, excluding [[Arceus]] holding a Toxic Plate.

Type Poison

The Poison type (どくタイプ Doku taipu in Japanese) is one of the eighteen Pokémon elemental types.

These Pokémon have a natural toxic quality, maybe they produce venom, are poisonous plants, or even represent pollution. They normally live in caves, marshes or similar places.

A very curious fact about Poison-type Pokémon is that some of them resemble ninjas. For example, Koffing is like a smoke ball, Crobat has a ninja's speed and secrecy and Toxicroak has paws that make it resemble a ninja.

The Poison type is related to the status effects Poisoned and Badly Poisoned, which are produced mostly by Poison-type moves.

Famous Poison-type Pokémon Trainers include Koga, fifth Gym Leader of Kanto and then second member of the Indigo League; Janine, Koga's daughter and new Gym Leader of Kanto; Agatha, the third member of the Indigo League (her main type is Ghost, but all of her Pokémon are Poison-type as well); and Roxie, second Gym Leader in Pokémon Black 2 and White 2. Also, most villain teams in the videogames have Poison-type Pokémon, along with Dark types.

Relations with other typesEdit

  • They're strong against the Fairy type because fairies represent purity and poison the pollution.
  • They're strong against the Grass type because trees and plants are damaged by the pollution and toxins, such as insecticides.
  • They're weak against the Ground type because earthen and sandy features neutralize and mitigate the toxicity of poisons, making them less effective.
  • They're weak against the Psychic type because mind can't be poisoned. Poison acts over the body, and the mind is superior to the body, while Psychic-type attacks are mental.
  • They resist the Fighting type because when poisoned, a fighter or deportist loses strength. Fighters try to be healthy as most as they can and poisons can make them sick. It could also be said that since some Poison-type Pokémon have a gelatinous body, punches and kicks cushions the impact.
  • They were strong against the Bug type in Generation I because of insecticides, toxins that killed bugs. However, since Generation II, the Bug type resists them because many insects have developed resistance to some insecticides.
  • The Ghost type resists them because you can't poison someone who's already dead, besides, the spirit doesn't have a physical form, thus toxins can't pass through.
  • The Rock type resists them because since rocks aren't live creatures, poison can hardly damage them.
  • The Steel type is immune to them because poisons cannot circulate through or penetrate metals, mainly because they're not organic materials.

TriviaEdit

  • There are no Poison-type Legendary Pokémon, excluding Arceus holding a Toxic Plate.
  • Most dual Poison-type Pokémon have Bug or Grass as its other type. This reflects how in real life many insects and plants are poisonous.

NotesEdit

  3. ^ Before Generation VI, this was a Clever type-type move.
  4. ^ 20 until Generation V.
