Normal while not being SE against anything has pretty solid neutral coverage
which is more than poison can say

Where's Grass? It's the most common resistance; 7 types resist it. Oh wait, I should read past the first 10 posts next time.

Normal.

It's super-effective against nothing, and three types are resistant or immune to it.

Grass or Poison

It actually doesn't. That's just a myth that keeps getting perpetuated about it for some reason. Normal's neutral coverage can be most accurately described as unremarkably average. Dark, Dragon, Flying, Ghost, Ground, Psychic, Rock, and Water all have better neutral coverage than Normal.
It had pretty solid neutral coverage back in RBY, where the list of types better than it was only about half that many.

This. At least Poison has at least two moves that are good. Steel has Bullet Punch. And only because of Scizor.
