Poison (type)

** Also, every such generation has a two stage family of blob-shaped pure Poison types: {{p|Grimer}} and {{p|Muk}} in Generation I, {{p|Gulpin}} and {{p|Swalot}} in Generation III, and {{p|Trubbish}} and {{p|Garbodor}} in Generation V.
* Generation I introduced the most Poison-type Pokémon of any Generation with 33, and Generation II introduced the least Poison-type Pokémon, with four.
* Generation II is the only generation not to introduce any pure Poison-type Pokémon.
* The Poison type is one of three types that will never (with the current type chart) be doubly [[Damage modification|super effective]] against any Pokémon, as it is only super effective against one type. The other two are the {{t|Normal}} type and {{t|Dragon}} type.
** However, in Generation I, due to {{t|Bug}} being weak to Poison, it was doubly super effective against Grass/Bug-type Pokémon ({{p|Paras}} and {{p|Parasect}}), and would have been doubly super effective against {{p|Wormadam}} with the Plant Cloak, {{p|Sewaddle}}, {{p|Swadloon}}, and {{p|Leavanny}}, had the type match-ups not been changed.
