C/D: Poison is an excellent defensive typing
newuser2000 posted...The fact that some of the better posion types aren't affected by ground (Crobat, Wheezing) makes it a good type, since hardly anyone uses psychic attacks.
How was this even an oversight? Sludge Bomb is pretty much the go-to Poison move because of its distribution.

You donít have time to ponder such questions, as Munchlax has just eaten a Smash Ball!!!

Downright ignorance of the Poison type, as Sludge Bomb has been the Poison attack of choice since Generation II.

Beat me to it. Similarly, I doubt people would be constantly raving about Ice being a "Amazing offensive type," if it wasn't one of the few weaknesses of the ever-popular Dragon type.
More on topic, no, poison is not a good defensive type, because in comparison to Steel, nothing is a good defensive type. The only thing Poison has over Steel is a fighting resistance, and it's still weak to Earthquake, which every physical attacker and their mother carries. Plus, the majority of the types poison does resist are almost as bad offensively as Poison itself: Fairy has poor distribution, Grass as a type has near-perpetually been a laughingstock on offense and defense, bug has had it similarly rough, and Poison... Well, that gets redundant.

Poison is actually above average as a defensive type, its only real crippling weakness is Ground since Psychic is a lol attacking type at the moment.

You mean: They're the three top offensive types because it receives double damage from them.

Depends on the mon.
I love using a bold weezing
Also mega venusaur. I go modest cuz I don't like playing a pure stall set, but it is naturally pretty bulky and with thick fat, giga drain, and synthesis it is hard to take down
