19 Best Poison Type Pokémon From All Generations (2022)

Poison type Pokémon are aplenty in the franchise, and they are one of the oldest types introduced in the series as they made their debut way back in Generation I. And so, this is one Pokémon group that most of us are quite familiar with!

Unlike the popular types of Pokémon – like fire, water or grass – poison-type is often overlooked which is kinda disappointing considering the sheer number of choices you have. There are not just Pokémon who are pure poison-type, but also Pokémon who have dual-types with poison being one of them; and this duality grant them with both offensive and defensive capabilities necessary to go up against all sorts of Pokémon.

Even when you consider the pure poison-type Pokémon, they are pretty powerful as well because they can turn the tides in a battle by just incapacitating their opponents via one of their poisonous attacks.

This type of Pokémon can easily be identified because they are designed in a way that “poison” or “venom” immediately comes to your mind when you see them. So, let’s not waste much time and have a look at all the awesome poison Pokémon that have been introduced in the series so far
