All of your "doesn't really matter," points, are assuming nothing changes in the meta-game. They all happen to be reasons the meta-game will change, and suggestions as to what will change.

Yes however poison is still overall one of the worst offensive types and fairies being weak to it won't change that(it will make it better of course but still pretty bad).

Unless you've played the new metagame, you can't say this.

I'm basing this off of how many types are weak to poison and how many types are resistant to it and how many immunities there are to it. Poison will only super effective on two types, 4 types will resist it and one type will be completely immune to it.

Azmarill's gonna have Double STAB since Child's Play is assuming a physical attack and works with Huge Power

Azumarill will be the first Pokemon to resist both of Reshiram's STABs.
Not even Heatran does this because Turboblaze exists.

I'm not easily impressed; I'm usually oblivious to whatever's in front of me.

The problem with Poison as an attacking type is that it still has pretty poor coverage (though it's gotten better) and regular Poison as a status effect is the worst possible status you could inflict.

So what are you afraid of, and what are you made of?

I'm disappointed they did not make it super-effective against Water and Fighting in addition to Grass and Fairy.
