EVERYTHING was poison type in gen 1, that's why psychic was so godly.

Because Game Freak envisioned it as being made up of poisonous gas and the like.

Well, technically, Ghost has always been weak to itself. Granted, Lick is a piss poor move, but it always dealt SE damage to other Ghosts. Night Shade was an oddball, I remember that thing hitting Normal and Psychic type Pokémon that were otherwise immune to Ghost.

I really doubt GF cared that much about game balance in Gen 1.

...At least I hope they didn't.

Well, Gyarados' and Charizard's typing suggest that they cared at least a little.
