Characteristics

Defense

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.

Offense

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.
