Is the current Type Chart unbalanced?

Me personally, I think its fine the way it is. Sure Poison is only super effective against one type (Grass), but the whole point about Poison is creating weakness, not brute force. Not every type needs to be consist of brute force. What are your thoughts?

I feel like Poison needs more ways to inflict Toxic poisoning.

All we need for that is new moves and adjustments to moves.

It's a problem when a pure poison type is crap and a pure dragon type is gold. It's less the types themselves and more their distribution. If all poison types had better movepools and stats than dragon, there'd be some balance. But no one's going to use Muk over Haxorus (I think? People can be mad creative though, and I love to see that).

Poison needs more resistances for it to be effective imo just because if it isn't going to be a very effective offensive type it should at least be a good defensive type. Other than that its ok

Yes, it's unbalanced. Ice and poison suck. There's no need for some stupid reasoning to explain how they are now. They just need to have some advantages and resistances added.

Yeah, because Electric type moves aren't already on every team in the first place.
