Really, the debate here is between Arbok, Weezing, Muk, Nidoqueen, and Nidoking. But poison type Pokèmon are pretty cool. Though there's hardly enough of them. I personally prefer Muk. But I could see the argument for almost any of these. I do like Koffing, but Weezing is a bit of a weird tumor amalgamation. What do you think?

Yes! My element!

I don't think you realized in time, but my boys Venusaur and Gengar are poison type. More than a fifth of pokemon at the time were poison types for frigs sake. I'm one of those people who actually picked Bulbasaur, the thing is actually a beast these days, maybe in early gen not so much, since *pulls up documents* yep, back then solar beam constituted as what the devs intended to be the grass type ace in the hole. Now with actual moves at its disposal and a freaking mega I love Venusaur plenty, as for gen 1, well, Gengar doesn't learn any relevant moves outside TM's and isn't very... poisonous, so I guess I'll stick with Tentacruel and Weezing. For one, Tentacruel is a good specially offensive and defensive pokemon in gen 1, cause, you know, broken stats, and just generally tanky in any other instance. They make use of it with access to hydro pump, ice beam and blizzard, even mega drain and the unholy wrap of death. Maybe I like the idea of exploding in the faces of my enemies a bit too much, but Weezing is really tanky for what it is. That's a poison type's benefit in general, outlasting the opponent while setting up more and more ways to hurt them in kind. Really though, poison types really needed the tools given to them in later generations. As a bonus notice, Crobat is another favorite pick of mine. Poison flying comes with three quadruple resistances, and the pokemon itself is an excellent fast switch-in. That and Zubat are as common as lint.

You dug yourself into this hole, now run before I begin talking about Venomoth.

What does it mean to lose all meaning? That's not a goth thing, it just sounds like something that would make a robot explode.

Mecha Leo : See, but they weren't pure Poison types. I was just going by a wiki post.

Definitely Weezing, since in Gen 3 he's a tank that explodes. Very nice for the Battle Frontier as a insta-kill nuke.
