27 Best Poison Type Pokémon of All Time

I think that Poison Type Pokemon are the most dangerous creatures in the series every time I think about them.

Poison-type Pokemon include poisonous snakes, poisonous gases, and even funny garbage bags.

And these Pokemon are worth training because they are very useful and have powerful moves. But don’t just take my word for it.

Some of the most famous trainers, like Janine from Fuchsia City, choose poison type Pokemon.

So, put on a hazmat suit and a gas mask, and let’s look at the most poisonous Pokemon ever.

Poison Type Pokémon

Gastly doesn’t really have a shape because 95% of its body is poisonous gas and the other 5% is thought to be the souls of people who died from the gas.

But it always looks like a purple haze around a black ball-shaped Pokémon.

It has a pink mouth that is wide and shows two sharp teeth. Even though its eyes look like they go past its round body, you can see that they are surrounded by eyelids.

26. Foongus
