Plague them all: Poison-type Pokémon are perfect for intoxicating battles, and their Scarlet and Violet specimens are no different!
But welcome, followers of Professor Snape’s potions lesson: the smell of the rot of poison type must have drawn you to this guide a Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. Associated with this elemental category is one of the worst status problems that little monsters can suffer from in battle. Poisoning causes you to lose life points each turn, and the move Toxin (which dogs and pigs can learn via TM, for some reason) expects coughs to hurt twice as much each time it’s the victim’s turn (hyperpoisoning). Even better, use it twice in a row Feeling points will hyperpoison any victim who enters battle from the opposite side of the field!
If you want a good Poison-type to include in your Pokémon Scarlet and Violet team, as we mentioned earlier, try to make sure there’s only one. Balance your team it is vital and, above all, it is also avoid monotypes. Exist 18 items to which a creature can belong, and as we said in our review of the games, the adventure will cover them one by one. You have six vacancies: with double-type beasties you can get to cover some 12 and, if you like, with the right therapies you could potentially cover every weakness reaching 18 (or rather, 13 in one fight). Poisonous monsters are vulnerable to attacks Terra e Psychoand theSteel it is immune to their moves.
Let’s get off to a good start (gastrointestinal) with one of Scarlet and Violet’s stinkiest Pokémon, a Poison-type who plays dirty… very dirty. To stink, of Stunky and its evolution Skun tank, is the inappropriate “tank” in the name of the latter. Let’s be clear: Poison e Dark they are a fantastic pairing and they just have to fear the Terra attacks. However, the life points of this olfactory violator are a bit small, as are the poisonous moves compared to their Dark counterparts. On the other hand, in the collection of moves that he can learn (by level) there is Flamethrower: one more reason to hang out South of Lake Gran Cauldron… in Scarletat least.
Grafaiai – the best Poison-type Pokémon for Scarlet and Violet
To be understood as “aiai” in the sense of monkeys, Counts it’s more a case of “ouch ouch” when it comes to versatility. Not that he lacks it, but maybe he overdoes it: he just has speed as the only stat above 100 points. Attack and special attack are average, but even using it to place the aforementioned two moves for hyperpoison, health and defenses prevent it from breaking through. Compared to other newcomers, Grafaiai’s movepool isn’t too bad; it is the other poisonous little monsters who clip his (metaphorical) wings with each confrontation. The previous Shroodle evolution can be found at Grove of Dreams central-north-eastern, while al Toasted Bosco north-west it is possible to find it evolved.
Toxicroak – the best Poison-type Pokémon for Scarlet and Violet
Bruises and poisons: is there a better match? If your answer is no, leave it to Toxic and he will take care of dispensing both. The type combo features a Poison/Fight, which translates into a fragile attacker with decent speed. Even having the adequate offensive capabilities, Toxicroak requires dedication to draw out its true potential. The Poison moves, the good ones, reach almost level 50. As for mid-Fight, you should arm yourself with MT if you want to make the most of his secondary talent. He and his younger counterpart Croagunk can be found at Great Cauldron Lake.
Muk – the best Poison-type Pokémon for Scarlet and Violet
Muk it has few weaknesses, but doesn’t do much to distance itself from other Poison-types. The number of health points, the attack value and its special defense are its flagships, all exceeding one hundred. However, despite him, he is slow. From him, he can learn Toxin, Sludge Bomb, Sludge, and Dirt Throw. Not that he can make up for his slowness enough to make it worth it for most coaches. As an option it’s fine, but don’t expect to get too far into the metagame. You can find the pre-evolution Grimer at nightnear marinade e Leudapoli. Ah, did you know that Muk written in the contr—
Clodsire – the best Poison-type Pokémon for Scarlet and Violet
Similarly to Meowth of Galar and its evolution Perrserker, likewise the poisonous Wooper of Paldea boasts an entirely different name for the adult stage. Clodsire retains the excellent type moveset Terra from the normal Quagsire, with the bonus of being able to intoxicate enemies. Also, thanks to Water Absorb, Quagsire’s resistance to Water moves remains. However, if his ability is Poison Point, any physical contact with the opponent will poison him. In addition to being available near the first Pokémon Center in the gamePaldea Wooper can also master Fielepunte, Toxin and Earthquake: a fearsome combo.
Revavroom – the best Poison-type Pokémon for Scarlet and Violet
You’ve probably seen Revavroom at the end of your assaults on Team Star bases. This type creature Steel/Poison boasts good physical stats, in addition (understandably) to very good speed. Unfortunately, he is weak to Fire attacks and, doubly, to Earth moves. The downside is his ten resistances, including an immunity to toxic attacks. As for the moveset, this sentient engine can learn Metal Head, Poison Sting and even Dirt Throw. Usually we’d tell you where to catch the pre-evolution, but there’s a great Revavroom by Fire therapy in a valley of the Sierra Attacksall’far north of the map.
Gengar – the best Poison-type Pokémon for Scarlet and Violet
Of course, we know well that Charizard is a parsley immune to sorting, but we often forget that not even Gengar never fails to appeal. While no longer a mainstay of the competitive scene, this Ghost/Poison boasts excellent stats in terms of speed and special attack. Its Baleful Body ability can inhibit a counter move. As for the moveset, the maypole begins to bear fruit between level 40 and 60, so we advise you to have you trade a Haunter (maybe one of the Sierra Attacks, to stay on topic) later in the game. Or teach him Shadow Claw.
Toxtricity – the best Poison-type Pokémon for Scarlet and Violet
One of the faces of the Maximizers is Toxtricity and the combination Electro/Poison come back here too. His weaknesses are Psychic and (again, doubly) Earth. His Punk Rock skill empowers all sound-based attacks, but he can also enjoy Technician and corroborate moves whose power ranges from 60 and below. If this is your Toxtricity’s ability, you can use Thunder Shock and Acid Bomb without hesitation. Both types of him are associated with status problems, and pre-evolution Toxel is easily found in all of the southwest of the Paldea region: we are not at the level of Wooper, but we get close.
Glimmora – the best Poison-type Pokémon for Scarlet and Violet
The combination of types it boasts Glimmer exposes it to some weaknesses, but Poison/Rock it can also take just as many hits. His real strength, beyond speed and special attack, is the excellent collection of moves available to him. The evolutionary line can learn Fielspikes, Ancient Power, Stealth Rock, Poison Shock, Power Gem, and Sludge Wave up to level 50. Also, his two potential skills are both great. Mantoxin, a new entry for the series, releases Fielepunte with each attack received. If she has Vigor, however, she forces her health to reduce to one life point before she is knocked down. Unfortunately, however, before accessing the Paldea chasm its pre-evolution Glimmet is super rare in the caves…
Volcarona… more or less
Speaking of the Voragine di Paldea, we close the top ten with aVioletto endgame exclusive. Iron Moth, “future” form of Volcarona in Italian called Ironmothbelongs to the types Fire e Poison. You will need to bring your Miraidon into the Paldea chasm to catch one, but this Pokémon boasts excellent attack, special attack, special defense and speed stats, at the expense of a small loss (5 points) in life points and defense. Mud Wave and Voldifuoco are just two of its moves, with the addition of a bonus at level 91: Blaze. If you want to go competitive with a toxic creature, we might have found the right one!
