Poison

The Poison-type is one of the fifteen elemental types introduced in the first generation of Pokémon. This type mostly consists of venomous, rather than poisonous, creatures as most inject their venom through stings or bites. This type is rather weak offensively but is known to deal moderate damage over time.

It is to note that before Generation 4, all damaging Poison-type moves were categorized into physical attacks, while afterward being split up into the special and status categories too – depending on the move.
