Top Ten Best Poison PokemonThis isn't 100% based off of stats, just so ya know. It's more-so an opinion.
The Top Ten
Max out this boi's speed and boom a glass canon.
I don't really LOVE Crobat. But personally it's decent. Zubat is annoying, Golbat is drunk, but overall Crobat is pretty solid for a Pokémon.
I have a Zubat.
Seriously hated Koga's team and his battling style in the elite 4, and this thing exemplified what Koga stands for with toxic and double team. But after kissing some Golbat ass, I can say this dude is sweet. One of the fastest out there, can wreak havoc with toxic (Koga-Sensei taught me well), learns Fly and gave a solarbeam more disrespect than Popo did to Goku's Kamehameha in the battle tower. - theman1000000V 52 Comments
It can do 100 damege
Drapion is a very powerful pokemon. It is lethal with its defensive bulk,and has a decent attack stat. He is relatively fast and can learn some pretty decent moves. Now for its ability sniper, which increases the power of critical hits, you can easily use this to your advantage. If you give it a scope lens, it will increase it's critical hit ratio, plus with moves such as night slash and cross poison which have high critical hit ratios, it will become pretty hard for the hits to NOT be critical. Now with both cross poison and night slash receiving a STAB boost, the moves get base power 105, then with the extra high critical hit ratio, it's quite likely for the hits to become critical, increasing the damage by 2.25 because of sniper, the base power averages to roundabout 236. Now for a filter for the other slots you can have moves such as knock off and poison fang, which has a 50% chance to badly poison a target. You could also have toxic spikes or big bite. Also if you want to make ...more
Drapion is badass great design great type and great movepoolV 36 Comments
Incoming is real basking! after getting life orb with sheer force...he can easily sweep
Found shiny on cousins game.
STEAL IT FOR A MAGIKARP!
First off, let's just say that if you don't pink for you Nidoking, his shiny is blue! Gengar's shiny form looks like a tooth! Nidoking is part of a combo of male and female, Gengar is forever alone. Nidoking learns moves like earthquake and megahorn, plus a unique move earth power! Gengar's only famous for his shadow ball, hypnosis, dream eater combo. Giving him no unique movepool. Plus, if we are talking true poison type Pokemon, then Gengar isn't a poison type then at all! He is a primary ghost type, people hardly use him for his poison abilities at all. Nidoking, on the other hand, is a primary poison type, making him more assigned as number 1 of poison types. Another bonus, Gengar is just a shadow who gives people nightmares that aren't real! While Nidoking is a giant reptilian like monster that can can cause earthquakes and have a girlfreind! Talk about win for win. Let's face it, Gengar may get a mega evolution, but no one says to the KING!
You made a paragraph about your like for Nidoking and STILL managed to get it's color wrong. Wow. - Thermal36
COME ON! Who doesn't love nidoking? I mean e is east to get and very powerful. E can also learn moves like earthquake. In fire red and leaf green you can get him at the beginning.V 38 Comments
Best POISON type EVER!
Favorite poison type and tied with Lucario and Hawlucha for favorite fighting type
One of my favorites
I'm only voting because this thing destroyed Cynthia's Garchomp. My favorite Poison type of all time, except for Scolipede. (And Weezing.)V 25 Comments
Why is Gengar no. 1 on best Ghost-types but never Poison-types?
Gengar is still really good and deserves a higher spot on the list!
Gengar with hypnosis and dream eater I really op so how is this number five
WHY #5! He deserves better,He is not only the best ghost type,But the best poison type! If not,He shall be one of the best pokemon ever! Oh,by the way,He learns a very large amount of dark type moves too allowing him to use powerful attacks like Dark Pulse and others.Not enough? Teach him hypnosis and dream eater and Nightmare (You could teach it now that move quite late but it is totally worth it.) and make it like the non-mythical version of Darkrai! Mark my words.
Gengar is one of the strongest pokemonV 47 Comments
Definitely my favourite pokemon, it is very fast and has a respectable attack stat. Set up a sword dance on this beast and it can sweep. Furthermore it's hidden ability means it only gets faster as the battle continues and it has baton pass meaning these boosts can be passed on to other pokemon allowing them to sweep.
It has coverage for all it's weaknesses, plus the ability speed boost? A definite sweeper
Awesome can run a speed boost set with protect and mash as many enemies as possible. Plus looks nice.
Gigantic pinky-purple centipedes for the win.V 20 Comments
It is one of the strongest grass types and it can mega evolve. It is way better than crobat.
Venusaur I choose you! use solar beam!
We have a Drapion and a Crobat above Venusaur-think.
And a Gengar-GENGAR IS NOT USED AS A POISON TYPE!
Venusaur is actually forgotten for its poison side, but its poison side is super powerful-it's the best tank-sure, speed isn't great, but it's a wall and a tanks and a massive BEAST!
AND MEGA VENUSAUR! This is like having a garchomp with a stat boost of 10000-you have unleashed the fairy finisher, the ELIMINATOR!
It's A FROG WITH A FLOWER ON ITS BACK-AWESOME!
Come on! Lets give Venusaur that top ten crown!
Venusaur is pretty tanky, and it also has good special attack, can beat any type with a weakness to it. - Decidueye2314V 33 Comments
Well muk is a big splat of gunck,so it's got to be the most powerful it is qwite big
Muk is overall a very powerful Pokemon, and despite its special attack and speed stats, it can still do loads of damage with Brick Break and Gunk Shot. Plus, Shadow Sneak gives priority, which can pick up quick kills in a pinch. Also, Minimize sharply raises evasion, so using it a few times can make Muk nearly untouchable. There is no reason it's not the best poison type Pokemon.
Muk is incredibly versatile, being able to force out a large number of Pokemon (including most of the new fairies), set up a curse to bolster its defense to match its Special defense, and also has access to priority in Shadow sneak, making it able to outspeed for the kill when needed. Way too underrated!V 28 Comments
The Best Pokemon!
Give arbok strong jaw with pison, ice, fire, and thunder fang it can't be beat.
He is awesome because he is a snake!
It's my favorite pokemon)V 23 Comments
What happened to it? Roserade is decent to have, with the best moves a poison type can ever use. It could learn Spikes, Toxic Spikes, Leech Seed, Sleep Powder and such, added with decent Speed and Special Attack. Train it right, and you got yourself a poisonous bomb.
Roserade is probably one of the most over-looked Pokemon. He has a base 125 Special Attack and a very respectable 100 base Special Defense and 90 base Speed.
It's an awesome sweeper, after galvantula throws its sticky web, assault vest roserade, in a full power set is awesome
Great! But a shame you have to use a stone to evolve it... that way you can't change its moves if you regret themV 7 Comments
It's a really cool pokemon in my opinion
Weezing what can I say about him that makes it one of the best poison types, well fer starters its ability "levitate" makes it immune to one of its 2 only weaknesses ground typing, not only that you can make it either physically or specially offensive because of its balanced special and physical attack stats and through breeding teach it toxic spikes, not only that its got great defensive bulk and decent special defense. and yes I rather like the design fer Weezing as well.
Weezing has always been a staple for poison types in the game and as a Pokemon in general in the original anime. Easily one of the most recognizable Pokemon of all time and can be an all out tank with strong defense stats and the ability to learn a wide set of TM's. Will always stay in my heart as my favorite poison types and one of, if not just flat out my all time favorite Pokemon.
I have ALWAYS loved weezing, ever since pokemon blue and red. Not only does it look cool, but it looks intriguing! It's an amazing pokemon with great defense and attack stats. Coming way ahead of Muk in my opinion.V 6 Comments
Very cool design, also amazing picture they used for this. - Aja
It should be n.1 it can crush crobatV 12 Comments
NO COMMENTS! Just one my most favorite pokemon EVER. Same with Nidoking.
An awesome pokemon that can learn 3 one hit
KO moves and knows epic moves for all elements
A pokemon with such as a poisonous heart earns
A place in the top ten at the least
If nidoking is second then she should be first
She is the mother of all poison types and can destroy steel with earth quake
5 words, life orb and sheer forceV 5 Comments
The best gen 1 pokemon
He is a good pokemon
Come on No.11 people what about these moves Sludge Wave, Scald, Toxic, and Toxic Spikes with Liquid Ooze it is bad for Leech seed, Giga Drain, Mega Drain, and absorb so use it and you won't be upset with the results
Epic Pokemon though it is under appreciated it has epic specials and speed and a considerate defenseV 6 Comments
He is legit a tank ngl
Swalot refuses to die. Maybe not the highest defense for a poison-type pokemon, but my favorite because he doesn't die and does a lot of damage. Out of all I've used - Muk, Garbodor, Swalot, Tenticruel, Nidoking/Nidoqueen and other pokemon - something about Swalot and how powerful he is makes him my favorite.
When you look past the whole "poisonous bag that eats everything whole" thing, Swalot is really cute.
Because it's hard to be defeated by hitting it's stomach because it's bouncy like jellyV 4 Comments
Bulbasaur is so cute plus he is the strongest out of charmander and squirtle I think he's great :D
It is so cute! It probably isn't one of my favorite grass pokemon because Leafeon is my favorite pokemon but bulbasaur is a good starter wiv a cute face and epic evolutions!
His final evolution, Venusaur, is poison. Not bulbasaur himself.
It's A CUTE GRASS AND POISON Pokemon Pokemon FOR MEV 2 Comments
Skuntank is one of two poison type that don't have to worry about psychics and it can throw opposing teams for a loop if you're go at predicting moves. Try this set:
First take their item with thief. Then they won't expect a second dark attack in sucker punch, then when they try to boost to avoid the sucker punch use snatch.
Or if you know you're fighting a boosting Pokemon like a cloyster or a dragonite snatch first.
This is a top 5 poison Pokemon
Really guys! When you put a poison out, they switch to an Espeon or something like that. But not Skuntank. His dark side makes him immune to psychic, and his po7son side makes him normal to bug and fighting. That makes Skuntank's only weakness is ground.
Skuntank is literally the skunk Pokémon. I like skunks, and it looks great too. It is my favorite Pokémon. - Tag365
I used action replay just to get it in platinum and hence the name he is a tank only being taking down by ground moves have a wide variety of moves making him one of the most power fullV 7 Comments
This thing is absolutely adorable.
This is a nice Pokemon...
Beedrill is better
Croagunk is bossV 2 Comments
I love skorupi he's powerful and can use moves that are affective against types he weak to!
I love skorupi he's way better than weezing in my opinion
Skorupi is the only scorpion Pokemon that actally looks like a scorpion. Unlike Drapion and his weird neck thing. Drapion is still good.
I LOVE SKORUPI! HE IS THE BEST
I can believe that a trash pokemon is so powerful
This is one beefy stack of trash! Garbodor will reduce the opponents team to garbage, out of pure frustration. All hail the Garbage King!
This amazing Pokemon helped me through the Pokemon league In black and white. I love this pile of trash. It's so derpy so I love it.
I believe in my heart that this garbage pile should be MUCH higher on this list. It stinks!V 2 Comments
Very useful against water Pokémon.
Can know all venusaurs moves however is easyer to 1 shot on the other hand it can get leach seeds out and PSn pow and do more damage than a lot of the guys on this list
Why is this Pokemon below a bunch of ugly ones?
Vileplume gets a hundred HP just at the level 30's. Awesome defense, and the moves. Oh, and the Sp. Attack and defense. Incredible!
This Pokemon has decent stadts and is by far the prettiest poison type Pokemon it is the best :) xoxo
As a poison trainer I like poison pokemon but
I suggest that venomoth should be in the ten.
But why? Because I traded my venomoth from hg
To my diamond and managed to sucseed in the
Whole game with Venomoth, nidoqueen, gengar
Toxicroak, muk and weezing! I also managed to
Beat the champion in 1 minute with my lv 100
Venomoth! IN YOUR FACE CYNTHIA!
Venomoth is an exellent Pokemon. You Can easly pass trough the Pokemon league just with him and defeat opponent Pokemons that have an higher level than your Venomoth.
Ariados is one of my favorite Pokémon! It can be cute, and fierce, and although it isn't very powerful, it still has an awesome design and concept. I used one in my play-through of HeartGold and I can say I didn't regret it. It may not be the best, but it is special to me.
Ariados is so cool! He is underrated, and I think he should get a mega evolution. I picked heart gold because of Ariados and Ho-Oh.
People who think butterfree is better have got to face it beedrill would just stab them and destroy butterfree - TENTACRUEL
Beedrill can even beat a dragon type pkemon beedrill rocks
Beedrill is helpful at the start of Pokemon and he is so strong at the start of the game but sadly you have to replace him with another Pokemon in the end :(V 9 Comments
Seviper is totally the best poison-type! It's a snake with huge fangs and a sword on its tail. It's also the only poison-type to have a signature move ( poison tail). It can also learn moves such as flamethrower and crunch to deal with its weaknesses. I have a level 100 seviper and it defeated the diantha by itself. Also, you can get it early on in the game. If you use it right it can be awesome.
Seviper is the best poison type Pokemon! Unlike basically the whole top 10 this Pokemon is a pure poison type! In my Pokemon Y game this Pokemon was my tank. Sludge Bomb, Poison Jab, Glare, Crunch, Flamethrower, Haze, Toxic and it's kick-ass signature move Poison Tail. SO UNDERRATED!
In my emerald game this owned everything with poison tail. It also just looks so amazingly awesome!
Seviper has good moves to counter its weaknesses flamethrower and dark pulseV 1 Comment
Salazzle is a great poisen type pokemon I always have her first in my battles cause she is strong Salazzle should at least be in the top tens.
That artwork of Salazzle. It is Dazzling
I even have her as my main - Super64Mario
Salazzle may have a x4 weakness to ground, but she's wicked strong. A few stat boosts and a Baton Pass made my Salazzle a sweeper to rock the ages.V 1 Comment
Ok, so I know a lot of people just hates this Pokémon's look, but let's have a look at the 2013 Pokémon Video Game Championship, shall we?
If you were keeping track of the evenement, you probably know the Italian Arash Ommati won the Masters' Division.
The reason he won : its Amoonguss.
Arash Ommati's openent, Ryosuke Kosuge, had a team of almost only legendaries during the final ; Conkeldurr, Heatran, Cresselia and Therian Landorus. Its Amoonguss still survived all the battle, even if Heatran was a big threat.
I personally use Amoonguss since 3 years and it's an awesome Pokémon when you know how to use it properly. - -Giratina-
One of the best
Any Ultra Beast should be FIRST!
I love how morbid it is. It is basically a huge parasite it, attached to it’s host to get some knowledge and it makes them aggressive. It only thinks of one thing survival.
Nihilego is the best Pokemon ever. Fact! Nihilego is the best Poison-Type Pokemon ever and always will be. Fact! There is no point in trying anymore. Fact! If you don't vote for Nihilego, then you will be banished to the Ultra Wormhole!V 3 Comments
Weedle is in-fact the product of a failed Pokemon cloning experiment! Oh wait...
Because I can. Problem, Weedle-haters?
He should be in top twenty
He is so amazing!
I like this guy. He is a great toxic spikes stalker. So annoying
I’m just here cause no one else voted. Don’t listen to me this guy sucks
As much as I dislike this Pokemon, I would be lying if I said he wasn't the best. - SapphireDragon95
Toxapex water/poison typing makes him invulnerable to groun types. Also his merciless ability make him powerful if the opponent was poisoned. Its special move baneful bunker will sure to mark a doubt to the trainers who attempts to make a physical attack plus its toxic spikes will make him a formidable enemy with an addition to venoshock, in which intensifies when the opponent was poisoned.
It is a great pokemon awesome for sun and moon ultra/non-ultra best posion type
Toxapex should be number one
Are you kidding? Gliscor isn't a poison type but just in case: he's awesome
It has great special attack and speed witch can make a great sweeper
He is my favorite character and he's my imagination best friend.
Ekans is snake spelled backwards. Creative, Pokémon? I think not.
Where is Ekans guys?! I mean crobat is the WEAKEST thing in the world and its number one?! I MEAN EKANS IS ADORABLE LITTLE LOVABLE SNAKE AND NOBODY CARES FOR IT
It's so cuteV 1 Comment
Koffing is awesome
I mean why not?
Its pure grass but still good and evolved into breloom grass/ fighting
Shroomish is really bad
Really? Shroomish is Just Grass.
Shroomish is clearly a cute poison type Pokemon
With some pretty decent moves
Gastly is super ugly.
Yay cute venipede - TENTACRUEL
Please put it ahead of zubat
It is cute! But skuntank ruins stunky's cuteness hmph!
Stunky is a skunk Pokemon! And I love skunks! So obivously I'm voting for this one. vote this one evreyone! Its cute and its powerful (and because it a dark type you can use it for battling pyshic types too)
Is this even poison?
Yes it is
It can only be the creator as with the Toxic plate it is there fore the only legendary poison type and can easily beat all other poison types on the list
Arceus is the one of the best Pokemon of all time I bet it can kO gengar with one hit
Boss Pokemon! Can K. O almost anything.
What to tell he is the god of pokmon
Not a poison type. It evolves from one, but it's not a poison type itself.
This is misspelled... It's Bellossom
Why is subatomic and Croat on the list but not Golbat?
Zubat is an poison type
It's evolution is number 1
Zubat is not poison type?!?
