its not.

Care to say why?

Poison isn't all that great of a type defensively, especially since it's weak to moves like Earthquake and Psychic, and it's only super effective against Grass. (Maybe Fairy-type, too?) That's pretty bad.

Poison is weak defensively and lacks any sort of offensive power.

I was hoping for tanky Poisons this gen...guess it'll be sweepers all round to show off its new offensive prowess.

Worst offensive type, and only an okay defensive one.

Though if it is super-effective against the alleged Fairy type, then it'll become a better offensive type.

4 resistances and 2 weeknesses isn't that bad. Especially when one resistance is fighting.
Being weak to ground is bad, but it's not the end of the world really.
