    I has. I'd like to see a Poison legendary like her. Or maybe a Poison Type, Legendary Manticore-like Pokemon?

    3 things-

    You can't just say crobat is beaten by gengar. It's true, but it's an opinion.

    I think you can't ban someone from your thread just because you don't like what they say.....


    And yes, poison needs a new legend. So does steel. Steel has registeel, but we need a new one.

    A steel and poison legend would be cool...it needs levitate, though ;)

    Steel gets Registeel and Heatran and Dialga. Next please.

    It's like poison is a running joke at Game Freak, with its pitiful 1 super effective and steel completely blocking it. B/W gave poison both Sludge Wave and Gunk Shot, but still nothing.

    actually D/P gave it gunk shot

    Poison is better than you think. Like you mentioned, it has a few powerful moves like Gunk Shot and Sludge Wave, as well as Sludge Bomb. In addition, while it may only have one strength, it's similar to Normal-type in its ability to do well with neutral coverage. Few types resist poison. Don't forget that poison-types have key defensive resistances (Weezing is an incredible all-purpose wall, especially with Stockpile) and they can absorb Toxic Spikes.

    dont forget they also made toxic and toxic spikes

    Absolutely.

    Anyway, as for the topic of the thread, I personally don't have a preference of whether or not we get a poison-type legendary. We're all at the mercy of Game Freak's design department in this case. I personally don't think we need a legendary with all the amazing poison-types we already have like Weezing, Gengar, Crobat, Toxicroak, Nidoking, Roserade... the list goes on.

    Why not a poison/dark? A pokemon so poisonous that it's poison is black and can kill any living thing with the right dosage.

    I think a poison-electric or a poison-fire would be just like a water-fire pokemon: completely senseless (although it could be very useful ingame).

    I'm a monotype-poison trainer, and I see so many potential in this type.

    Btw, I'm voting Weezing,

    If it had levitate, it would have no weaknesses.

    I believe the problem is that Poison is negative. A legendary is usually seen as good, not so much evil. Also, Poison is kind of bad... It is only super effective against one type... Not very good for a legedary. If it's a mixed type maybe... One with a lot more type advantages.

    why not an evil legendary?

    well, I found mewtwo, zapdos, moltres, articuno, eayquaza, groudon, kyogre and giratina quite evil

    Uh, Darkrai?
     
  15. Angeltripper

    In the games, he's seen as evil. In the anime, he's a hero. so darkrai goes either way. thats why I didnt add him or regigigas

    True, but my point was that Dark is also seen as a "negative" type.

    I think if there was a poison legendary it would probably be something that would have been created by an evil organisation that is trying to pollute the planet for their own personal gain and this Pokemon would be the origin of all pollution. Obviously a rare typing would be involved... Poison/Steel with Levitate? :D

    Poison/fire legendary.

    I like the idea of a Poison/Steel legendary created by an evil organization (like Mewtwo was).

    It could be an large snake with steel skin. I imagine a mix of Rayquaza and Seviper with metal plakes and poisonous fangs.

    Or maybe something associated with rust iron…

    you know, I think a dark/poison legendary could be made from something like dark matter and it would be very powerful cause nothing is supereffective to it. (unless you use miracle eye) then an evil organization takes it (but not like in b/w)
