    Which family do you prefer Koffing or Ekans?
    I think this should be a no-brainer for everyone but i like Ekans and Arbok more. It's actually not that easy to decide though as I do love Koffing and Weezing. I just prefer the designs of the snakes slightly more, I've always liked snakes as animals so that was it really. However I can't disagree that Weezing is the superior battler, it has better stats and natural movepool (Although I think Arbok has a better TM movepool).
    Basically if I wanted a pet or a friend or even a mascot Pokemon it'll be Arbok but during a really serious battle Weezing is the better choice.
    I felt that Koffing/Weezing's main rivals as pokemon were more Grimer and Muk due to their more similar bulk and being found in close proximity to one another.

    EDIT: just to point out at the front page we've got an awesome pic of Koffing but underneath it still says Swalot is our featured pokemon

      Interesting topic :D But please explain your answers! I'd love to see why you chose those Pokémon n.n

      If you could become a Poison type specialist for the Elite 4, what would your team be?
      This is a pretty easy choice to make for me.

      Scolipede
      Roserade
      Garbodor
      Swalot
      Muk
      Amoonguss

      Amoonguss would be the strongest, my shining star. With Muk, Swalot and Garbodor all being the same level as each other as these three are closely linked Pokémon, slightly lower then Amoongus. Then Scolipede and Roserade would share an again slightly lower level, making the two weaker Pokemon of the team. :3 I'm kinda upset that there's no room for Weezing on my team as I absolutely adore shiny Weezing, but he doesn't really seem to fit in much haha.

      My team would be this:

      Roserade
      Skuntank
      Crobat
      Vileplume
      Nidoking
      Nidoqueen

      Roserade would be the strongest member of my team, with Skuntank, Crobat and Vileplume being slightly lower level and my weakest members would be the two Nidos.

        btw I was not the one who came up with the question Its an old question I wanted to answer.

        I guess its because I love them Pokemon. And Tentacruel can be useful against ground types and Drapion is good against Psychic types.

        Also Crobat is a Beast.

        Interesting team! What made you choose those Pokémon? And why is Roserade your strongest? :3 Gotta admit, I never thought you were a Roserade kind of person xD I love the Nidoking/queen combination though, they're be awesome together :D

        Oh wow, I didn't even think about that whilst making my team xD I forgot about Poison's weaknesses so yeah I agree, Tentacruel and Drapion are brilliant choices for the reasons you said. I'm disappointed at the lack of Swalot and Garbodor though D; Those are staple Poison types imo, they're all basically just forms of Muk, the original Poison type beast xD

        I notice that no one chose to use Venomoth despite it being a very good Pokémon in the current metagame, why is that I wonder? :3 I personally love Venomoth but it just didn't cross my mind lmao, I'd probably replace Scolipede with it. Although Scolipede is one of those epic looking Pokémon that'd really intimidate the opponent whereas a moth... isn't. xD So it's a hard choice ;; Being an E4 member isn't just about show, you also need presentation!

          Reasons for joining: I just wanna say I love the poison type! As far as battling I've always like that "suprise factor" trait that most of them have, or otherwise just being good at what they do best. My favorite thing about the poison type is the quirks and variety givin to them based on their descriptions, designs, and most of their anime depictions (personalities, roles, etc.) that give them their own layer of depth, occasional and humor. Examples: Ash's Muk <3, Brock's Croagunk, Gengar line trio at the tower of terror, Ash's bulbasaur (as well as others I mention by name).

            Yeah, I have to say my ideas are so interesting.

            Roserade is my fave Poison Pokemon thanks to its high Special Attack stat, and it's also among my fave Grass-types too. I've used one on almost all of my D/P/Pt playthroughs and it was a total powerhouse.

            The Nidoking/queen duo always work well together so I had to include them. Crobat has access to good attacks like Cross Poison and Acrobatics which hit hard, Vileplume cos it's my fave Gen I Poison Pokemon and Skuntank for its interesting type combo and I seem to like the look of skunks in general.

            Oh, and welcome to the club Ralaia! So, why pick Grimer as a partner?

            Hello, welcome to the club! :D I'm glad to see someone else that loves Poison types, people aren't being passionate enough about them these days! D: And I fully agree with what you said about their "surprise factor" traits, that's the main reason I love using them too <3 So what made you choose Muk as your partner? It's one of my all-time favourite Pokémon so good choice! Hope you have fun here :D I'm curious about your Poison specialist team though, care to explain why you chose those Pokémon? c:

            Hi dude, welcome to the club! Grimer is my all-time favourite Poison Pokémon so great choice there, very pleased with that :D What made you choose it over the other Poison types? And how come you like Poison type Pokémon enough to join a fan club about them? c: Also your team that you chose is very interesting but I'd love to hear why you chose them - especially Nidoqueen! Want to explain? :D

            They do? I had no idea about that, how come? I can't really think of any way they complement each other bar being very closely related with their species xD Although that is a pretty cool reason to use them anyway! I just can't see them being that useful on a team, especially an Elite Four team or something xD They just don't really have the move sets or stats to back them up against most enemies :(

            Oo interesting, how come? :D Vileplume has always been a favourite of mine too, it's such an interesting Pokémon and really fun to use. It's just a shame that it's stats aren't a little better or it'd be such a fun Pokémon in a competitive team, it's move pool is very devious and tricky!

            If anyone wants to start a new topic feel free, but remember the idea is to discuss each other's choices, not just list your own xD

              Wow thanks! Well uhh Muk is my favorite poison type for a few reasons; It was the first one i stopped to catch in fire red and it did so well, especially in the E4. Secondly I like the sort of tranquil quality of muk seing as they are extreemly poisonous and hazardous to evrything around them, they choose to willingly keep their toxicity under control as to not be a menace to everything around them. Lastly I love its portyrayal in the anime as shown in its unique battling style and how hes mostly immune to physical attacks (ash's muk vs bellspout/scizor/blastoise), not only that but how he went from a big and macho leader of grimers to a big pal to everyone once he was caught. Thats how i envisioned my Muk and I would be, except on a greater scale.

              *ahem* Well, as for my team its really a modified version of my actual competitive mono poison team to add in a couple of my more favored poison types such as Muk(and drapion). In their places would be ammongus and weezing, although both Muk and Drapion are completely and very much so viable its alot harder to bring out their full power theese days every new gen. Anyway scolipede is a a very fast lead that uses swords dance and fires off giganticearthquakes and megahorns even further boosted by swarm(also protected by focus sash). He can baton pass boosts to any physical attacker teammate if need. Amoongus and Weezing are excellent defensive beasts that can take many hits and subdue potential threats with their disruptive abillities. Gengar, the bread on butter pokemon of the team can come in and elimate alot of things that could cause trouble via sheer power or a destiny bond(suprise factor). Drapion is for those pesky psychic types. Muk's role would be a mid game supporter and sporting the powerful Gunk Shot and a supporting last ditch move in Memento(suprise factor) or he can go the curse set and attempt to sweep(sorta). I'm also lovin that buff Muk got in Minimize increasing evasion now TWO stages!

                Alright then let's see what we've got.
                Hi to everyone who joined while I was away and on with the topic.
                Elite 4 team for poison would be.

                Crobat
                Out first and with such high speed it inflict early damage, immune to ground attacks
                Skuntank
                Dark typing to deal with those pesky psychic types, personal preference over Drapion.
                Tentacruel
                Bulky water type for increased coverage.
                Victreebel
                Hits hard with leaf blade and leaf storm.
                Gengar
                Levitating Pokemon with the ability to wreck foes with shadow ball.
                Toxicroak
                To clean out any dark types. Good physical attacker.

                Others considered were Arbok, Weezing, Muk, Rosearade, Nidoking/queen, Venusaur, Venomoth and Scolipede

                  Gengar
                  Levitating Pokemon with the ability to wreck foes with shadow ball.
                  Toxicroak
                  To clean out any dark types. Good physical attacker.

                  Others considered were Arbok, Weezing, Muk, Rosearade, Nidoking/queen, Venusaur, Venomoth and Scolipede
                  Nice team! Ya know if it wernt for your conflicting pokes your team could also run weather

                  Sunny Day:
                  pros:
                  -Victreebell gets a supperpowered growth and chlorophyl boost
                  -Crobat, Gengar, and skunktank could make use of Heatwave, Hidden Power Fire, and FireBlast respectively; dispatching steel types.

                  Cons:
                  -Toxicroak is hurt evry turn from dry skin
                  -Tentecruel's water moves are neutered

                  RainDance:
                  pros:
                  -Toxicroak Benifits from its dry skin
                  -Boosts tentacruel's water moves
                  -Removes a weakness for victreebel

                  Cons:
                  -nueters the possibility of using fire moves on steel types, although it really isnt that big of a deal since you have Toxicroak and Gengar

                    Thanks!
                    I'd go for a raindance boast out of the two, skuntank would be my main fire user so I'd just keep him out of it until the weather wears off. Problem with a sunny day powered Victreebel is how any fire move would cause real problems.
                    Also noticed how I have no pure poison types there... Is that cheating?

                    I wouldn't call it cheating. Poison on it's own isn't actually that diverse of a type, it only really caters to a pretty specific set of opponents. It's the unique skills and abilities that it brings to the table when combined with a secondary type that makes me love them so much, they can turn any type of Pokémon into something crafty and kick-ass :D That's not to say mono-type Poison Pokémon are bad, there are certainly some incredibly strong ones such as Muk and Weezing, but I think it definitely is a type that's better off supporting a second typing.

                      Agreed. Poison teams have the potential to take on any type because of the their supreme diversity. Even if you were to have no pure poison types, its all good cuz your still using poison .

                      Couldn't have said it better myself. xD

                      Okay guys, get ready for this...

                      ☣ IT'S EVENT TIME! ☣

                      Aren't you excited? I sure am! It's time for our very own Toxic club exclusive event, so get ready to be awesome and let your passion shine! This event caters for everyone from artists to writers, battlers to composers, and anyone else - all you need is a Pokémon that you love and a reason for loving them. So without further adieu, this is what's happening:

                      What's going on?
                      The idea of the event is very simple - all you have to do is pick your favourite Poison type Pokémon and display it in the light that you see it; however, it's completely up to you how you wish to interpret this brief. We all have reasons for having one Pokémon as our favourite, so now's the time to showcase those reasons. If you're an artist then you could draw a picture showing the Pokémon's unique trait that makes you love it; if you're a poet then you could write a poem detailing it's unique trait in action and why that makes it such a great Pokémon; if you're a battler then you could devise a move set showing off it's uniqueness and showing why people should use it; if you're a composer then write a song about the Pokémon; if you're a photographer then take pictures showcasing the Pokémon; the possibilities are endless! You can produce absolutely anything you want no matter how creative or uncreative, it can even just be a mini-essay submission if you really can't think of anything else, so no excuses for not taking part. n.n

                      How do I enter?
                      Simply send your entry to me in a PM and post saying that you've entered just so I know I haven't missed anyone, and I'll confirm your entry once I receive it. Message me if you have any questions regarding the event and hopefully we'll be overflowing with entrants in no time! As for the deadline, that'll be announced at a later date. :)

                      Okay, so give me prizes!
                      Of course, there are prizes to be won too! Let's take a look:
                      1. A special emblem, an exclusive in-game shiny Pokémon, an extra partner Pokémon in the club, a coloured username and a custom title on the club's OP!
                      2. An extra partner Pokémon in the club, a coloured username and custom title on the club's OP.
                      3. An extra partner Pokémon in the club.
                      So what are you waiting for? Submit your entries and we'll see who wins - good luck to all entrants!

                        .....Amazing. This is gonna be awesome. In essence I believe everyone should have an entry Pokemon just because of the fact that they are in a club, at least I would think so. Nonetheless this is an excellent way of bring out the ideas and passion in people. What kind of entries we'll see is the big question...

                        I'm actually really curious what Pokémon people are going to choose for the contest. I know a lot of people don't choose their favourite Pokémon as their partner when signing up for a club so I'm hoping some weird ones will come up! The thing I love about Poison types is that most of the Pokémon do have some really interesting traits/quirks about them which is what makes it such a cool and diverse type, so I'm hoping the submissions should reflect this well. :D Expecting a lot of Muks, Grimers, Arboks, Drapions, Roserades... Whatcha think?

                          Haha i'd expect so. And to my surprise not that many people partnered with what I thought would be the more common poison types like the Nidos, Drapion, Scolipede, etc. I'd take that as a good sign . Also I beleive we have one garbodor in the club.

                            Well I'll get started then on my mini-essay (because I'm uncreative), sir.
                            As you say you're expecting a lot of Arbok I may do two with a second being Skuntank if that's OK?

                            Sure, I'll just count whichever is best as your final entry. :)

                            Incidentally I might need help judging when it comes to deciding between the last couple of entries, so if anyone wants to volunteer then that would be lovely!

                            So in spirit of the competition, let's revive an old topic and give it a new twist that will fit perfectly in helping to come up with entries!

                            What is your favourite Poison type Pokémon and what makes it unique?

                            I'll answer soon but I'm more interested to hear what you guys think at the moment as everyone already knows mine, I rant about it way too much paha.

                              Incidentally I might need help judging when it comes to deciding between the last couple of entries, so if anyone wants to volunteer then that would be lovely!

                              So in spirit of the competition, let's revive an old topic and give it a new twist that will fit perfectly in helping to come up with entries!

                              What is your favourite Poison type Pokémon and what makes it unique?

                              I'll answer soon but I'm more interested to hear what you guys think at the moment as everyone already knows mine, I rant about it way too much paha.
                              Thanks
                              I would offer to help but as I'm taking part there might be some bias there.

                              Favourite Poison type is Arbok (gasp!), I can't even fully explain what it is about the great snake that appeals to me that much but just look at it, a massive freaky Cobra! Apparently strong enough to crush steel barrels with its wrap! On the other side I've also always had a thing for reptiles, especially snakes and crocodiles so Arbok stood out (This was before Seviper and generation III). I also have always liked the bad guys more than the heroes in fiction, with a few exceptions. Team Rocket, both the organisation and the TRio in the anime have my undying love (Little overboard) they constantly use Arbok, Jessie's Arbok in the anime became one of my favourites right from when I started watching, it helped that it ruined Ash and Misty in that episode. Jessie's Arbok wasn't even 'evil' (I don't like calling TRio evil because they're not but for the sake of this I shall) but the snake was following orders due to loyalty and friendship, unlike the later Seviper who we saw was a always a jerk, and that interested me, I wish they'd have put this relationship in the spotlight more. I'm sure we all remember how painful Wrap used to be in 1st Gen and Ekans and Arbok were the masters, my slightly evil strategy was poisoning foes and just wrap them. I didn't do this on my friends much because they'd just get frustrated.

                                OK my favorite pokemon is Muk(shocker! :o!!). But the main reasons I like Muk isn't because of its uniqueness or because of its special qualities but more of how I learned to love Muk as a pokemon. In the anime there was never a point in the anime where I didn't like how Muk was portrayed(sans under the ownership of a villainous gang...as most poison types). Anyway I always adored how ash's muk was always friendly and affectionate towards everyone it met despite being a pokemon that is usually avoided. I also loved how Muk is also mostly just misunderstood; as portrayed in the episode where 3 Muk enter a pond and mucked up the water unintentionally driving out the psyduck. Its until they are sent blasting off into another swamp and finding three Muks(females) that its realized they just wanted a home too , just like all pokemon need, although they happened to ruin the pond.

                                What really sealed the deal is when I visited Dr. Footprint in my platinum and showed him my Muk and he told me what my Muk thought about me: "There are no Pokémon that dislike humans... Only humans that dislike Pokémon... We Muk are especially shunned... But [My name] always treats me as a friend and partner...". That is what made me want to make Muk my favorite pokemon. Not too many people would want to have a Muk, so I would be the one to take one in with open arms and be the best partner a Muk could have(Garbodor reference).

                                Now, being Muk and all his awesome glory he also does have several unique things about him that few other pokemon have. In the anime and games Muk has shown to be able to alter his body shape and size as well as certain gelatinous properties which I think is really cool and only I think the other pokemon with similar qualities is swalot(another one of my faves). With this Muk like many other poison types can control their toxicity and stentch(as displayed in the anime) as to not unintentionally harm anyone. Similar to how someone can hold a croagunk's hand without getting poisoned or someone can ride a rapidash without getting burned. I believe that truly displays how Muk is truly more of a peaceful pokemon as opposed to how some people view it as a pest and unlovable(yet a wild one would still respond how most any pokemon would if you introoded on its home or territory).

                                Muk is also very competent in battle as being both defensive and offensive. While also being able to accommodate more of a supporting role and live up to the reputation of how frustrating poison types are to fight. With moves such as minimize, memento, disable, and the obvious poison ailment Muk has several options to strike dread into the hearts of his adversaries. Not to mention also being able to use various elemental moves.

                                So that's my wall of text of why I like Muk.

                                EDIT: Since I basically slammed my entire idea of my event submission in that one post I'll draw something instead

                                  I like Muk but I also like Crobat. Crobat is fast, hits hard and its strong. My Crobat on Pokemon Black took out Marshal all by itself despite being around 10 levels lower. And Muk is a giant blob of sludge.
