Trivia

  • Poison is the only type (besides Nuclear-type) that is not supereffective against Nuclear-type Pokémon. It is unknown if this is intentional or if it is a glitch.
  • All primary Poison-types have a Nuclear form.
    • Additionally, all evolutionary lines that contain a pure-Poison Pokémon have a Nuclear form.
