Poison followed by Sleep followed by Infatuation followed by Burn, but those tend to change depending on the situation at hand. If I'm facing a Pokémon with high attack, burn becomes my favorite. If I'm facing something that has too much HP, poison, etc.

Poison,
I like to use the Protection-Toxic combo. The fire is also effective

Sleep for me, cos it helped me catch lots of Pokemon. When I need to catch something, I always take something with me that can learn a sleep-inducing move.

Paralysis also helped me in lots of sticky situations, especially if I'm using slow Pokemon. It also helped me catch some Pokemon too.

Paralysis because their speed is halved and they can't attack sometimes :D

To use? Burn, because I already use Fire attacks naturally so when Burn procs it's just a pleasant bonus side effect.

To have? Sleep because it has the ability to not last too long and once it's gone, it's gone.

I enjoy using Toxic on the majority of my Pokémon so I'm definitely going with Poison. It slowly whittles away the Pokémon's health leaving them helpless and dying painfully n.n To have used on my though I'd go with Paralysis since most of my Pokémon choices are kinda slow anyway and the not attacking thing doesn't seem to happen too often :p

Paralysis. It lowers the enemy's speed and sometimes immobilizes the enemy. Thunder Wave is a little more accessible than Spore and it's instant, unlike Toxic. So yeah... zap!

I'm honestly not that good a Poison user. I mean it's helpful, though my strategies tend to more at wiping out my opponents fast due to not usually having a tank. Thus, I tend to rely more on Sleep or Paralysis, as those are moves that ensure that'll I get a hit without the opponent necessarily hitting too. Confusion works too at times, with also giving the chance of the opponent doing damage to itself, however it's still not one I tend to use that much.

I like Poison and Sleep the most. You can't go wrong with PoisonPowder and Leech Seed combo! Also Toxic is really good too because it takes away more health than PoisonPowder. When I'm trying to catch legendaries I try to Paralyze them or make them take a nice little nap.

To use? Freeze most definitely, because it's the one that your opponent is least likely to crawl out of alive.

To be used on me? Paralysis, because it's the least debilitating.

Sleep is the most broken without restrictions.
Paralysis is the coolest and useful. Dat speed cut.
Poison is the most annoying ingame.
Burn is the second most useful and great for shutting people down.
Fainted is the worse and I hate it.

hm...I voted for para, cuz cutting da speed of a pokemon and making them not being able to attack is just score for me. Magic Guard blocks gettin' fully para, but speed cut is still just as good. LOL

I woulda said attract, if it wasn't for the fact that it can only be use on the opposite gender; not sayin' anything wrong with that. LOL But that's just one of its flaws.

When you use Toxic it gives you a huge advantage :3, with your strong attacks and the effect of bad poison, enemies faint in no time. Other than that probably paralysis since it's convenient being faster and how sometimes your oppenent can't attack.
