I'm reverting for now, as most of the changes weren't written very well and most weren't needed. The only thing I'd keep is maybe the mention of Levitate, since it has such a large effect. "Offensively, the Poison type has a few setbacks due to poison being a really annoying status effect to have." doesn't even make sense. That isn't really for the place for listing what types can and can't be poisoned, and it could be done a lot better. --Jshadias 00:28, 9 Mar 2005 (UTC)

I edited general information about Posion-types

I don't really like Posion-types either, but it doesn't seem much objective to write "one of the worst types" about them.

"On the other hand"

Reworded the offensive/defensive sections slightly. "On the other hand" is used when you're comparing the pros/cons of something (e.g, "Shuckle can take a serious beating; on the other hand, its damage output is too low to even be considered 'crappy'"), not when you're adding support to something that's already been said.

quick question

Question: what would a poison attack look like in the anime? Like a sludge bomb, or an acid, for instance? because I have a theory about shaymin that I need to complete.- unsigned comment from 16ipodfanatic (talkcontribs)

That's easy. Look at the articles. here.--Dark ICE (User:Cold)(page, talk) 16:16, 21 August 2009 (UTC)

"It is also the only move capable of badly poisoning the foe that does not have the word "Toxic" in its name."

What about Toxic Spikes? - unsigned comment from Pjbarnoy (talkcontribs)

Read it again. It says It is also the only move capable of badly poisoning the foe that does not have the word "Toxic" in its name. Werdnae (talk) 02:50, 7 April 2010 (UTC)

Ironic Trivia

In the second bullet point of the third piece of trivia it starts with the word "Ironically," and yet I fail to see what is ironic about it. Am I missing something or is this just poorly worded? jas61292 03:20, 17 February 2011 (UTC)

I agree. I don't really think it's needed. PhantomJunkie 03:40, 17 February 2011 (UTC)
