Poison-type Pokémon are immune to being poisoned (except by a Pokémon with Corrosion), and a grounded Poison-type Pokémon automatically removes Toxic Spikes on its side when it switches in. Although the majority of non-Poison types are able to learn Toxic, as of Generation VI, when a Poison-type uses the move, it cannot miss, bypassing accuracy checks and semi-invulnerable turns from moves such as Fly and Dig.

Poison-type moves, including the damaging moves, usually are capable of inflicting poison or bad poison. Poison-type attacks pair well with Ground, which covers Rock, Poison, and Steel-type Pokémon while Poison covers Grass.

In Contests, Poison-type moves typically become Clever or Tough moves. None of them are considered Cute.

As of Generation IX, there are 76 Poison-type Pokémon or 8.26% of all Pokémon (counting those that are Poison-type in at least one of their forms, including regional forms), making it the 7th rarest type after Ground, Fighting, and Rock, and before Fire.

The Poison type is regarded as one of the weakest offensively. Prior to Pokémon X/Y it was super-effective only against Grass (many of which are dual Poison so neutralizes the effect). It now has an extra advantage against the new Fairy type. In the first generation it was also super-effective against Bug but this was changed. It fares a little better defensively but its best advantage is through status moves like Toxic.
