Poison Sting as an oxymoron: new section
Well, just like in my comment about Sludge, I've been working with pokered, the disassembly of Pokemon Red, and have found that Poison Sting has approximately a 20% poison chance in Gen 1 as opposed to a 30% chance. This would corroborate with what Super Goku said about Pokemon Stadium's description of the move. The ROM of Red/Blue compares the hex value 0x34 against a random hex value between 0x00 and 0xFF, which leads to an effective poison chance of 20%.

:Yep, that checks out. I've updated the page accordingly. --[[User:SnorlaxMonster|<span style="color:#A70000">'''Snorlax'''</span>]][[User talk:SnorlaxMonster|<span style="color:#0000A7">'''Monster'''</span>]] 09:08, 21 March 2017 (UTC)
== Poison Sting as an oxymoron ==
Injecting toxins technically makes it venomous, not poisonous. I think we should add that to the trivia section. As well as the trivia section of Poison Fang for that matter.
