New topic: 'What is your favourite trait of Poison types?'

For me I think it's the fact that they can't get poisoned themselves. This is invaluable, especially in a metagame full of Toxic abuse. I also love the fact that 90% of Poison types (that I can think of) are capable of being used in several different ways for battles. Muk for example is a great Pokemon to use for setting up, as a staller, or even an attacker - I find these sorts of Pokemon invaluable to use.
Yes, I 100% with Alex there.

Poison is immune to the Poison status, allowing them to block Toxic abusers.

Even though Poison isn't strong against a lot of Pokemon, they still hit well with their STAB moves.

    being immune to poisening is great. But they also are good with changing the status of foes in poisoning, PARZ and sleep. The large amount of poison types avalible also allows you to find one for almost every cause. Brutes like Drapon, healers/status changers like Venosaur and special attackers like Gengar.

      Poison types are diverse, yes. And how could I forget their access to several status ailment inducer? Bad me.

        Think I shall kick start this with a topic change if nobody minds.

        'Which Gen is your favourate, in terms of poison types?'

        Mine would be the first because of the number of poison types that I find myself using even now, also Arbok . My second would be 4th as It added a few more powerful kinds and started to give poison types more powerful moves.

        I agree with you completely. Gen I was the best since it added some beauties such as Wheezing, Grimer and Ghastly, but none of them were really all that strong. So when Gen IV came around this was wonderful, there were some much stronger Pokemon brought it and more moves too; Poison types become awesome-er <3

          I agree with both of you. 1st gen was the one most helpful to the poison types. Almost one-fourth of the pokemon are poison types, making it really abundant. Plus, some awesome Pokemon like Weezing, Venusaur, Nido guys, were introduced.

          Fourth was the next one simply because of Toxicroak, Roserade and Drapion. Awesome guys.

            Welcome to the club, MagnumKnight13! I was on holiday and didn't see your post, sorry! xD

            So what do people think of the new Poison type gym leader for B2W2? Her name is Homika and she plays a guitar; she looks amazing!



            That's a picture of her above. Honestly I'm kinda freaked out based on information so far, she seems to be an exact replica of me. xD A guitar playing Poison type lover who's named after a hamster and dresses in black/purple - I love her already. <3 What do you guys think her team will be? Are you happy to see a Poison gym coming for B2W2? How far on in the story do you think she'll be?

            I'm happy about every new gym xD

            Sooo..
            *looks at BW pokedex*
            1. Scolipede - it has to be the main poke.. just look at the guitar @.@
            2. it's pre evos probably >.>
            what we also have here..
            oh yea, Trubbish/Garbodor.. but I hate him so I hope she won't use him xD
            and Foongus/Amoonguss, but I don't think so, no idea why >.>

            If it wasn't for the screens I would say that instead of the bug gym.. but it doesn't fit :<

            I'd say that team sounds about right haha. There are three Poison type families in Gen V (Scolipede, Garbodor & Amoonguss) so I reckon her team has to consist of these. I have a feeling she's one of the first couple gyms though, so I wouldn't expect many Pokemon or at too high levels :3 I wouldn't be surprised to see something like a Foongus and a Trubbish, or similar... I doubt she'll have a Scolipede or something from that family though since Burgh already uses them in his gym :3 If I had to guess, I'm going with a Foongus and a Trubbish as her team, possibly with one of them evolved. :3

              Homika looks like a rockstar, a hardcore at that. Definitely a new style to a gym leader. Have we had a Poison Gym since the father/daughter leaders? Koga/Janine? I don't think so, she is the first new taste of the Poison league! I tried expanding the photo a bit, it looks like she only has 2 Pokemon, so I say she will be one of the first two gym leaders (The way they showed her and the other guy, it's kind of obvious, I think). I will have to examine her a bit more, read what she says and learn her personality to fully say I like or dislike her, but she looks cool judging by the photo.


              Black and White 2 will not only have Generation 5 in the wild mainly, but will be a mixed across all 5 generations right? I believe she may have only Generation 5, but the trainers within her gyms, may be mixed from the first 4 generations. Just my third degree.

              She definitely looks like an interesting gym leader, and being poision I think she'll place a odd twist on the conventionary posion type tactics. I just hope she is a challenge. I agree with you Ozzy, that she might have a trubbish and a foongus, probably I think she'll have a trubish evolved into garbador, but that's just my opinion. I just think Gardbador is more of a 'tank' so to speak compared to Amoongus/Foongus. But either, way as long as she's interesting, I'm quite content.

              I agree! Perhaps if they were to replace gym leaders this could indicate Burgh could be replaced? I mean, I don't think Gamefreak will have give two gym leaders the same pokemon, I mean, that's just boring imo; we need variety! But yeah I was going to comment on that; just didn't know which pokemon it related to haha.

              Yees! Replacing Burgh is something I dream about @.@
              I never liked bug gyms.
              They were.. too easy XD

              A good poison gym should be better :3

              Lol I think the whole Burgh vs Homika debate about who will have Scolipede is a fair point, but Castelia City is still around so I don't think Burgh will be going anywhere. Although he did seem somewhat bored of gym battles... Scolipede however I think does belong as a Bug type rather than Poison. No matter how much I love it, I just can't see it being treated that much as a Poison type considering its a huge centipede that bases its strategies around Bug type moves. Are there any other Pokemon like this?

                Well her team pretty much guaranties a Trubish or garbador but the rest is a mystery. If it's all gens then it could have anything from Weezing-Drapion. It's really tough to guess at this point.

                I found a new picture!



                -counts the strings- OH WOW SHE PLAYS BASS

                But yeah, until that picture I never realized how much her guitar does in fact look like a Scolipede. If she uses a Scolipede that implies that she won't be the first gym as its a pretty advanced Pokemon for that stage? I'm quite curious what else she'd use though. I'm almost thinking Trubbish due to how her hair is tied up like a rubbish bag, but who knows haha. Do you think its likely she'll have a previous generation Pokemon?

                  off of the top of my head there's only one pure poison type familly in gen V and only three famillies in all. Unless they are the first or second leader battled then they usually have more than three species of pokemon.

                  Okay so we now know Homika has a Koffing due to newly released pictures! I'm pretty happy with that, I think Koffing suits her very well. But what about her second Pokemon? Having an unevolved Pokemon like Koffing somewhat implies that she won't be strong enough to have a Scolipede (she only has two Pokemon in the battle image and Burgh has 3, implying Homika will be before him and his Whirlipede), so hopefully she'll still have something cool. Her guitar just could be from her passion of that Poison family? Maybe she'll have two Generation 1 Pokemon ;o So basically:

                  What do you think Homika's second Pokemon will be?

                    yes Koffing! I have a feeling that she will be the first Gym leader but if she isn't then Gym leaders like having two of the same family so Weezing? If not well it could be any poison type although I think we can discount pokemon like Beedrill and Gastly. I still think Trubbish is quite likely

                    I am actually really hoping it's gonna be Trubbish. It's such an underrated Pokémon, which has most likely already been said here, and I think she's gonna be an early gym leader, due to a first stage evolution Pokémon, and since Trubbish is also a first stage Pokémon, it makes perfect sense \o/

                    Other than that I'm hoping Gastly or Haunter, for her to have a Kanto based team, since that would be awesome :D

                    Ahh I really do hope it is Trubbish, that'd be amazing. :3 Honestly I think her having a solely Kanto-based team is unlikely, mainly based on how much they developers seem to be focused on the new generation Pokemon being awesome and such. Trubbish has had barely any good press though (both Trubbish and Garbodor were even pretty derpy in their anime appearances) and I don't think the idea was for them to be hated this much, so I am certainly expecting a Trubbish or Garbodor on her team as a way of pumping some good vibes back into the two Pokemon.

                    Coincidentally, what do you guys think about how Poison types get portrayed in the anime? I think most of them get portrayed really badly tbh, they should be seen as interesting, unique and powerful Pokemon, but instead they always get derpy annoying roles whilst other Pokemon take over.

                      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 ?

                      Well to say the least, all of them are being put in bad lights kinda. I mean, Poison Pokémon are always being seen as evil, and I can see a point in that, but for some reason they always end up on Team Rocket's teams, where they are just destined to lose every single battle, so they are kinda being shown as weak too.

                      Once they show them outside of Team Rockets team, it's usually something tame, like with Trubbish and the playground in the B/W anime.

                      So yeah, I think they're being portrayed pretty badly.
