C/D Poison status should cut S.Atk

Badly poison should stay the same.

Maybe give burn a "terrible burn" effect and drain one PP per turn.

It is a little odd how Burn and Paralyze cause stat drops, but Poison doesn't. I say make Poison reduce Defense and S.Def, and add a reduction to S.Att to Burn to even it out.

More D than I get in an English test.
I'm not easily impressed; I'm usually oblivious to whatever's in front of me.

*looks at Prankster Riolu*

*Teaches it Toxic*

*Gives it Eviolite*

If this goes in, you just let a new champion into the NU tier. XD

Poison causing a defense drop would be interesting, but too deadly.

Maybe Poison (but not Bad Poison because everything learns Toxic) could lower Special Attack?

D, because almost everything learns toxic and toxic gets worse every turn whereas burn does not. It would be sooooo OP if it lowered defenses too (or special attack)

EDIT: I mean, come on. Set down two layers of toxic spikes and neuter the entire team of their special attacks (or lower all of their defenses?). Rapid spinners are supposed to be bulky and toxic lowering their defenses and increasingly eating at them will make them useless.

EDIT 2: Whoops, didn't read OP lol. Maybe regular poison should lower sp. attack, but definitely not defenses. I do think there should be a special version of intimidate as well.

Isn't that what TC said? >_>

Is there anything that reliably lowers S.Atk?
Everyone's arguing over which pokemon gen is the best while I'm just sitting here playing through nuzlocke runs.
