let us bring this club back up, shall we?
Consider how many Pokemon look, you're more likely to be able to tell how the Pokemon media will generally portray a pokemon based more on its appearance rather than its typing. Vileplume and Victreebel were built as counterparts (on the most basic level) they both have the same typing and act as version exclusive. Looking at them however guess which one is portrayed as 'evil'. Yeah it's not the feminine one with the smiley face it's the Venus-flytrap with the capping mouth and sharp teeth. Compare the big scary spider Ariados to fairly neutral Venomoth.
It's more that 'scary' pokemon tend to poison, dark or ghost type rather than the types themselves being portrayed one way as a whole.
