Anyway Hooktail's, poison-based attacks are fairly strong. His Megabreath is the third strongest move in the game, according to the Super Mario Wiki.

In the Pokemon world a Poison / Dragon type would probably have decent offensive stats from both sides of attack. Like some of the other offensive-inclined Poison-types, I guess it would have mediocre defences. I'd like to see it as the next Pseudo Legendary (600 base stat total, three stage evolution line, etc). :3 As for its concept/origin I have no clue XD.
This is actually a really interesting idea, one that I could easily imagine becoming a reality, as it doesn't seem out of character for Nintendo to do such a thing, though it would probably not be based on Gloomtail, if they were to include such a Pokémon. I like the idea of it being a pseudo-legendary, though I'd rather see it as a legendary, as it just seems more fit for that type of Pokémon. Either way, I'd back up this idea 100%, as it's a really good idea and because I'm frankly too lazy to try thinking of a new kind of Poison type Pokémon rn. I probably couldn't even make up an interesting Pokémon in general even if my life depended on it >_<
