The only thing Poison's getting this gen is a new type against which it's most likely going to be SE, so yes, the type as a whole will benefit, especially if the rumored "Belch" attack becomes true. --- Aut viam inveniam, aut faciam.
They should change poison to make it strong against water. Reasons being:
1. it naturally makes sense (water pollution harms water) 2. water is quite overpowered 3. poison needs more strengths than just grass and fairy, and water is a logical one --- White: Daisy 1550 0892 3564 Gold: Gold 3268 1023 8138
Still don't get why they removed its effectiveness against Bug...
Because Bug was too weak. I think they should have kept that but given it some more resistances instead.
Too weak? They gave it super-effectiveness against Dark. Poison's only good against Grass... which are made of Grass/Poison, Grass Steel and/or can use Earthquake or Psychic to counterattack. --- Yes, I'm Canadian. Yes, I speak french. Yes, I live in Quebec.
