i was checking out the groups section the other day (it's past midnight now),

and i noticed that there's no fanclubs dedicated to poison pokémon!

(sure, there aren't many dedicated to Pokémon types except for water and dragon, but still... WE NEED ONE!)

at first i was skeptical about how a fanclub is supposed to run, but i'll give it a try anyways :rambo:


this is a thread for all fans of poisonous Pokémon to gather and interact...


follow all PC rules
please don't spam (it's f***ed up)

don't diss
have fun

alright, so the first thing i need is a co-owner who shares my fear/awe of poisonous types, to help me out,

and people to sign-up so there you go!:

Ok, I smell topic time!

Ekans/Arbok or Seviper? Who is cooler why?

I personally like Seviper better. He seems more dedly. With his sharp blade, that is secreted in poison, and those large fangs. He would scare me if I saw him in real life. I also like the mortal enemies with Zangoose thing.

Well that's no good question, as Seviper evolves from Arbok. :\ According to the TV show, :D

Anyway, I'll join? The banner looks...uh...suave. :D

January 22nd, 2009, 6:51 PM
I've always really liked Arbok, mainly because it just looks really good. Seviper is unfortunately the stronger Pokémon, but it looks too tacky and colorful.

It's sad that Arbok was reduced to being nothing but a Team Rocket Pokémon in the games. Mind you, he's pretty weak.

alright, all of you are accepted... i ask that you please be active and other people are invited too!

about the topic, i also agree that it is a shame that Arbok's power was so low, and he does look a lot better then Seviper in my opinion :D

Edit: forgot to edit the members list... there you go!

anyone know how to make banners?

Hey everyone, can I join?

I didn't realize I liked Poison-type Pokémon a lot until I started checking my Gen III Teams some time ago. Most common type? You guessed it, Poison. Gen I/III Starter? Bulbasaur (part Poison). Fave catch at Viridian Forest? Weedle. Someone's bugging me with Earthquake? Zubat, go! I don't care if no one else likes you! Insta-catch after Lavender Town? Venonat. Johto? Spinarak. Got a Wurmple? I want a Dustox. Oh and... Rival Beater? My trusty Nidorino. Man I can't believe how much endurance that little thing has.

I'm currently playing LeafGreen. Of my master sextet, one is pure Poison, three others are dual-type Poison, other is a Dark type with Toxic, and the sixth is a speed EV-trained Bug/Flying (to deal with both Poison weaknesses).

I would be very glad to join. And to start on the right foot and on topic, I like Arbok's design the more. I think it goes more in line with what means to be a Poison type, you not only need a nasty bite, you need a somewhat frightening look as well. Three and a half meters of frightening look. Seviper is frightening too, to a point, but it was made, well, too streamlined, and its colours made too vivid, although the tail is OK. I mean, come on, tail blade...

January 24th, 2009, 1:13 PM
Can I join? They're surprisingly appreciated for a type with so many interesting, slow, suave and lethal! XD I'm going to make a banner as well! *soon-ish*

Ekans/Arbok or Seviper? Who is cooler, why?

Well, I wouldn't know, as there are no snakes in Ireland!Couldn't resist that one! :D. I'd say Arbok. I love his.. ahem... cobra-ness and the fact his design varies with regions (well, moreso generations, as if you transfer one up to DP its design will change). They're very interesting to look at, and they're quite a nice shade of purple. I'm also not big on Gen. III Pokémon for some unknown reason.

January 27th, 2009, 12:48 AM
Me want joining, pwease! Poisons are easily my favourite type. They always just look completely badass.

Anyway...Arbok is better than Seviper because...well, it has a giant freaking hood, and Seviper is partly gold coloured. Seriously, it looks like its wearing a suit of armour.

For the more recent question...Beedrill, definately. Dustox doesn't even have legs. Beedrill has GIANT FREAKING SPEARS ON ITS ARMS.

so that's my opinion :D

how about this - What is your favourite poison type pokemon/evolution family?

Mine would personally be Zubat/Golbat...but not Crobat. That was one they took a step too far.

Really? How come? (I'm interested)

I personally like Crobat better than either Zubat or Golbat, his design is simply... cleaner. That's my personal opinion though,

Regarding the question in hand though, my favorite family would definitely be: Nidoran-->Nidorino-->Nidoking

They're awesome :D

I Laugh at your Misfortune!
January 30th, 2009, 7:21 PM
they are awesome, but I never really think of them as a poison type. More of a fighting/ground type for some reason :P

I prefet Zubat and Golbat to Crobat because...they make sense. In the transition from zubat to Golabt, it gets bigger, gains small feet and gains small eyes. Not unreasonable, forpokemon evolution. In Golbat to crobat, it changes colour scheme, gets smaller, loses its les and gets a weird second pair of wings. It also loses its iconic fangs. I think Crobat would make more sense as an alternate Zubat evolution.

Beedrill _____ Dustox

http://pokemonelite2000.com/sprites/dpmfa/dpmfa015.png _____ http://pokemonelite2000.com/sprites/dpmfa/dpmfa269.png

I like Beedrill better. I like the speary-handy things. Those are awesome. Dustox's eyes are weird, his "feet" are weird, and his antennae are weird. Beedril, just seems stronger anyways.

What is your favourite poison type pokemon/evolution family?

Mine would be the:Nidoran-->Nidorino/Nidorina-->Nidoking/Nidoqueen family. They are so awesome. I ,however, like Nidoran-->Nidorina-->Nidoqueen better.

February 1st, 2009, 10:09 AM
I would like some joinage please.

Favourite Poison types: Croagunk → Toxicroak .:. NidoranM → Nidorino → Nidoking

I guess they're my favourite families also xD

February 1st, 2009, 1:59 PM
Korova: You're in!

I also like the Nidos the best. Nidoking is pure ownage :D

Besides them though, I also really like Koffing and Weezing design-wise they're G as hell! :pirate:

February 8th, 2009, 10:28 PM
I Love muk soo much and poison pokemon also who would win Arbok vs Weezing vs Muk sorry about no pics my images page wont load up :(


my poison pokemon deck lvl 100 arbok muk weezing parasect victoreebel(howeva its spelt) and tentacruel thats my perfect poison team but really i think venamoth muk tentacruel venasaur nidoking and nidoqueen is also a good poison team i go with poison/other type pokemon so u have more chance of winning eg: muk vs rapidash is not as good a tentacruel vs rapidash or weezing vs golduck isnt as good as venasaur or victoreebel vs golduck ok VOTE 4 POISON POKEMON AS BEST TYPE

February 10th, 2009, 9:02 AM
Parasect is not a poison pokémon. It is grass/bug. If a poison pokémon farts too near that thing, it dies.

I've got to join this.

I prefer Arbok to Seviper and Beedrill to Dustox, because cobras look way better than contorted, tacky, black tube-things with ice picks sticking out of their mouths, and (although I share Misty's overwhelming fear of bugs) Beedrills suit my sense of aesthetics better than Dustox. Spears for the win.

My favourite poision pokémon is Koffing!
I just had to sketch one out real quick, even if it turned out all messed up and wrong. D:

It is sad that it's so weak, but its design in pokémon red/blue was awesome. The series Koffing was 'meh', but they've been doing better in the newer games. Many of the first generation pokémon still look appealing to me today, particularly Nidoking, Koffing and Muk. Considering how the overall design of pokémon has been rapidly degrading since the first generation, it saddens me that Eevee never got a poison evolution.

Finally, it always pissed me off that almost all the first grass pokémon were grass/poison. I never liked being weak against psychic attacks. Alakazam used to be way too popular for that. D:

Beedrill. It's Gen I. Got spears hence Twinneedle. Cool anime appearances (chases). And it cries "zuki" (in the Japanese version at least).
I have to admit however I like Dustox's movepool WAAAAAY more. And it is a moth... a moth is always better than a wasp inside the house, right?

What is your favourite poison type pokemon/evolution family?
Already said: Nidos (male). Can't express in words because of the word count limit per post. Was here that someone said "give a Nidoking Earthquake and it's unstoppable"?

Oh it's so nice to see at least somewhere else Nidos get love!

Nidoking is complete win (, but I'm happy with Nidorino for now... my very own personal Rival Beater. To a pulp. Thrice. :D

I always marvel at how much pain can a Nidorino endure, and then curse at Nintendo (note: the only reason I actually curse at them) because one can not actually pat one's Pokémon in the head and take them to a (Pokémon) restaurant or something after a battle. I mean, come on, Bag -> Full Restore -> Use and that's all?

Damn, I forgot the gastly family. They are like, the gods of poison types

Oh Arceus! Gengar! That thing rocks! And he has got some good appearances at the anime... like Agatha's Gengar, that battle was real cool, with the snicker and the melt-into-flor thing! -- It's a shame you have to trade to get him, but, hey, the road to awesomeness is suposed to be steep, filled with Psychics and Steels, and only a few of us are already... escalating! :D --- And a good point with the god thing: there's no Poison-type Legendary yet!

@[email protected]: although it's true that Eevee never got a Poison evolution, there's something done, albeit little, in the form of Umbreon (http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Umbreon_(Pokémon)). It is pure-Dark, but it is suppossed to, from the Pokédex entries, sweat poison and spray it when it feels endangered. Rare how it does not reflect in the games. Oh well, as long as the designs for 5th Gen are not absolutely [email protected] up, wel should be seeing a Poison eeveelution. Yeah, and I am a Nintendo executive...

The only good thing about Grass+Poison is that it gives a Pokémon one 0.25× resistance (Grass), and that several overrated types (Dragon, Steel, Ground) do 1× damage. For everything else, it adds two weaknesses (but increases one resistance)... oh well at least we got to hit Steel-types.

The only two "good" type combinations for Poison seem to be Poison+Flying, which increases most of the resistances to 0.25× plus Ground-immunity, no 4× weakness, movepool advantage against two Poison-beaters (Fighting and Ground) and reduces one weakness to neutrality. But I don't remember ever being a Poison+Flying Pokémon... except for... oh my...

Are you ready?


The Zubat (http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Zubat_(Pokémon)) family!!!!!!! -- That's right, the Pokémon one always finds in a cave and wants to (usually) just past by! Welcome, fellow!

And the other is Poison+Ghost (Gastly...) with two immunities but 4 weaknesses and only two other resistances, one of them being Poison anyways... oh and good movelist against itself.

Let's be content not being Poison+Fighting (4× weakness to Psychic, [email protected]!!!) and weakness to both Ground and Flying, plus movelist detriment against Ghost and Psychic... who's the unfortunate? ... let's see... the Croagunk line.

Oh and for the topics thing, hey, a question for everyone:

Time for a team (tag) double Battle. Who do you pair up your favourite Poison Pokémon with?

I Laugh at your Misfortune!
February 14th, 2009, 5:34 AM
I'd pair up Gengar with Golbat. For no reason other than that I love them both :D

February 14th, 2009, 11:16 AM
Let's be content not being Poison+Fighting (4× weakness to Psychic, [email protected]!!!)

Yes, let's. Now, I just have to get rid of this x4 weakness to multiple exclamation marks. D:

As for the tag team battle, I'd step on the gas and match Koffing with Gastly, because they're both floating orbs and gas!

February 14th, 2009, 5:31 PM
My favorite poison Pokemon are muk and crobat muk is just a tank and crobat is just sneaky fast and awesome. but everyone forgets about Qwilfish he so unloved he has hardcore death spikes and a badass beat down tail im sure the little guy could cause some damage.

I Laugh at your Misfortune!
February 22nd, 2009, 10:05 PM
I personally think that Qwilfish really needs an evo. There's another question - What new poison-types would you like to see in the next generation?

March 11th, 2009, 11:01 PM
you could say i like poison cuz most grass pokemon are poison like venasaur hes in my party and hes grass/bug so is victreebell and vileplume is grass/poison so poison i say my second fav type so can i join da club?

hay i think servipor should have a evo and also servipor and qwilfish is the only few that are poison and dont have a evo

AAARRRGGH! What's happening guys? Let's not let our beloved fanclub slowly die of old age! Let's at least get it locked for excessive swearing, so we can go down fighting!

Now, lets kickstart this thread, so.......

Would you like to see a Poison-type baby pokemon, and if so, for what line?

Which Poison-type evolution line would you like to see expanded?

Which Poison-type would you pick as a starter?

April 2nd, 2009, 3:58 PM
i think grimer should have a baby pokemon a baby slime ball would be cute and i think Tentacruel should have a final form and it should be a giant squid as his final form

I Laugh at your Misfortune!
April 2nd, 2009, 4:32 PM
I can kinda see where you're going with Grimer, but I think it would be good if it wass a puddle in the bottom half of an egg or something, seeing as Grimer and Muk already look pretty similar.

btw, I've made a banner, but I'm a bit of a n00b at GIMP so its not brilliant:

*poof-ing here so thread does not die*

Oh good to see there's some activty. Sorry for being away so long.

And coming back to the subjetc of Poison types...

Would you like to see a Poison-type baby pokemon, and if so, for what line?
Poison-type baby? Mmmm... sounds good. I like the idea of a Skorupi preevo, but beyond that I can hardly think... I can barely imagine a Grimer preevo, but that alone makes it worthy to be seen, maybe it would be fun to have.

As for expanded evolutionary lines, I'd say Gulpin. There's not much else to pick from, given that the only other notorious Poison-lines with two levels is Skorupi and Tentacool. So yeah, the Giant Squid idea too.

Or maybe Qwilfish. Come on, why has it been left SO alone?

For a starter, I already have Bulbasaur so I'm happy. Croagunk would be quite interesting as a Starter, too. But if asked for a pure Poison as starter, I'd say, Gulpin all the way!

Now for a question about the current status of discrimination against Poison-type Pokémon in the games:

Poison-types lack a Deity. So, how do you imagine the Poison-type Legendary?

April 6th, 2009, 12:01 AM
i got a poison ledgendary the gas god Gasroto he is a gas all gas nothing else something like that or the pollution monster Pollutle

I Laugh at your Misfortune!
April 6th, 2009, 8:49 AM
A poisonous legendary? I can't imagine.....a giant cloud of toxic gas would be good....Or maybe something based on a Basilisk or Sea Serpent, so a freakin massive snake? There was a snake in norse mythology which lived underground and only ever poked its head and could kill people with one whiff of its breath. A Pokemon version of that, I would like to see.

April 10th, 2009, 1:37 PM

Nidoking: Godly movepool ie T-Bolt, Ice Beam, Fire Blast, EQ, etc
Toxicroak/Croagunk: Fake Out, Immune to H2O, Loads of resists, type coverage
Weezing: WoW, Walls fighters, tank

May 4th, 2009, 2:49 PM

Poison types weren't used by me in the games until some year ago. Now I'm in love with Haunter and Golbat. I loved Nidorino and Nidoking already, who said that a Nidoking with Earthquake could beat anything? I did that, on my Yellow game ;D

first of all, sorry to all of you for leaving, but i'm back now, so i'll add all the new guys to the first post...


btw i agree with I Laugh at your Misfortune! about the grimer pre-evo being a puddle, that would seriously kick ass to be frank,

and no one commented about a possible venonat baby (though venonat is already pretty baby-ish)...
still, i like the idea

also, nidoran deserved to be a starter since the first gen,

and lastly, Which Poison-type Pokemon would you like as your bodyguard?

i'm personally going with a well-hidden, sludge-spitting, Gulpin... with bad aim! (i've been hearin' skee-lo too much xD)

I Laugh at your Misfortune!
May 17th, 2009, 8:39 AM
Maybe Venonat's prevo could be a grub of some kind?

I'd want a Golbat to be my bodyguard, seeing as its kinda terrifying enough to scare anybody off. And if things got really hairy, it could just fly me out of there :D

May 18th, 2009, 3:39 AM
Which Poison-type Pokemon would you like as your bodyguard?
Drapion-It looks kinda scary and it has only one weakness!And if the foe has a ground type pokemon, it can always use super effective moves like ice fang and aqua tail.

I got bored so I made a banner...
Its animated!
I 'liek' Pokemon Ranger sprites :P
