I don't see them being treated diffrently than any other types really. Team Rocket's Arbok and Weezing lost a lot, yeah, but it was more because they were the bad guys then their typing other then that both were shown to be loyal and (supposedly?) strong pokemon. Remember Ash's Muk? That thing won Ash a few tricky battles including a really tough Bellsprout (also poison type) which had already KOed Ash's mighty Bulbasaur (also poison type).
There are kinds of pokemon like Trubbish that may be kinda derpy but not the type as a whole. Would you say all water types are shown wrong because of Slowpoke or Misty's Psyduck ?
