its not.

Care to say why?

Poison isn't all that great of a type defensively, especially since it's weak to moves like Earthquake and Psychic, and it's only super effective against Grass. (Maybe Fairy-type, too?) That's pretty bad.

Poison is weak defensively and lacks any sort of offensive power.

I was hoping for tanky Poisons this gen...guess it'll be sweepers all round to show off its new offensive prowess.

Worst offensive type, and only an okay defensive one.

Though if it is super-effective against the alleged Fairy type, then it'll become a better offensive type.

Only one type weak to it, weak to 2 common types, The pokemon designs are meh as meh could be (Sorry nidoking and scolipede), no poison type legends, and the worst pokemon ever is of this type.

4 resistances and 2 weeknesses isn't that bad. Especially when one resistance is fighting.
Being weak to ground is bad, but it's not the end of the world really.
