Both Poisons and Psychics suffered the most, IMO. Psychic was the most powerful type in R/B/Y, but G/S/C introduced the Dark and Steel types to keep them in check. Now, Psychic isn't one of the best types for a Pokémon to have.

Poison, on the other hand, suffered in the type shift in G/S/C because in R/B/Y, they hit 2 types for supereffective damage (Grass, Bug). The type chart in G/S/C was modified so that Poison only hit Bug supereffectively; Poison moves were also rendered useless by Steels.
