Why can nearly every Pokemon learn Toxic?

It just puzzles me. I mean, I can understand if a Legendary such as Cresselia or Dialga could have the ability to poison an opponent, and then there are strangely odd choices that can learn Toxic such as Azumarill. I don't know. Any idea?

It's a video game, so it doesn't need to make sense.

Vanillite can also learn Toxic. I've learned to love it for what it's worth.

It makes sense, they're pokemon, they can do whateve they want, iincluding creating toxic substances.

Pretend That there's a signature here.

So that there would be no reason to use poison types to toxic stall because non-poison types can use toxic and making poison types more irrelevant with their bad defensive and offensive typings.

This is a sig. Yup.

Toxic is the only annoying move for me when leveling up pokemon.

Any status effect grass move for any grass pokemon are annoying and clog up the move spots for the pokemon.

Stupid stun spores, cotton spore, poison spores, sleep spores

Then you got the HP absorb moves such as Leech Seeds, Mega drains/giga drains.

I'm like really? Not every grass pokemon need to have those moves give them some variety.

Such as a Roselia female pokemon. Give it some better moves that would make sense for a pokemon like that. one poison move only and the rest attack moves.

Same with flying pokey like bats or birds. Not every bird/bat pokemon have to have air attack or peck. Give them something different.
