If I've said it once, I'll say it again, Poison (status) needs changed

So that it affects Sp. Atk in the same way that Burn affects Atk.

At the same time, have Bad Burn/Severe Burn or whatnot, where you get no stat drop, but a similar effect to Toxic Poison

Yeah, i don't think we've forgotten that you (or others) have said that...

EDIT: but as it is, one layer of toxic spikes means bye bye special attackers. Then they need to add flaming spikes or paralyzing spikes

This would be another unnecessary buff for Steel :( especially Steel special attackers like Magnezone and Empoleon.

This. With the rumored fairy type match ups, Empoleon would probably make OU again. Imagine if it also got nasty plot? (Come on Gamefreak! It's an Emperor. Emperors plot all the time. It's what they do!)

I'd be okay with a Poison (status) buff as long as Badly Poisoned stays as is.

EDIT: Also, I will punch the internet if there's another entry hazard move. Seriously.

Noooooo. As someone else said, you could cripple an entire team by dropping down toxic spikes. And Gengar would exist on every single OU team, period. I don't want to see an age that every team has to revolve around dealing with entry hazards. It's bad enough you have to force a garbage spinner or waste a slot on rapid spin on an otherwise good Pokemon to deal with hazards. "Hm, which slot do I choose to go to forretress..."

What about the prevalence of Will-O-Wisp and Scald though, those can cripple a physically attacking team.

And suddenly...
Ferrothorn with Toxic is now invincible.

SO HOW ABOUT NO?

But Toxic would not affect the Sp. Atk, only regular poison status would
