C/D: Poison type should be changed to Toxic type

#11FenriLokiPosted 7/20/2013 10:10:19 AM
Considering how all the other types work, I'm gonna say poison in pokemon works differently. Besides, I'm sure there are more glaring misnomers and problems that I still don't mind.

And I'm a zoology major, so biology is kinda my thing; I can still forgive pokemon.

Isn't it the same thing...?
"It's toxic, it can kill you."
"It's poisonus, it can kill you."
"It's venomous, it can kill you."
"It's Justin Beaver's music, it can kill you."


Well, no. Like he said... in order for a venom to work, it needs to injected directing into the blood stream. A poison on the other hand, doesn't... It can be ingested, absorbed through the skin, etc.

But, at the same time... I'm gonna have to say D.


So I can bathe in venom and not die?
I need to get my spiders in a spitting contest and fast.


More than that. You can drink venom and walk away ok. Just as long as you don't have any open wounds in your digestive tract... or a really bad ulcer.

Flying type needs to be renamed. Peck and Wing Attacks are attacks caused by birds, but not all birds are flying types.

Bird type used to be a thing but it was way too specific so i'm kinda ok with birdy moves being flying type.

Because none of the types are particularly literal

Yes, then fuse Ghost and Fairy into Spirit, and Spirit and Psychic into Paranormal. Then fuse Ground and Rock into Dirt, and mix in Grass, Bug, Ice, Steel, and Water to get Nature. Toxic, Electric and Fire then fuse into Hazardous type. Dark becomes Dirty, which is mistaken as Dirt, meaning Dirty is then mixed into Nature as well. Flying and Dragon become Aerial, which now includes Charizard. Normal and Fighting become Heroic.

You could do the same thing with:
Grass to Plant
Fire to Heat
Ice to Cold
Steel to Metal

And they would all make more sense than Poison to Toxic IMO.

What you're doing is fusing many different types together. That would destroy in game balance, and require way too much rehauling people wouldn't take kindly too.
