What Type Moves Are Poison-Type Pokemon Weak to in Scarlet and Violet?

There are two types that Poison-type Pokemon are weak to: Ground and Psychic types. Both are represented almost equally among the list of Pokemon in both versions, but there are very few that are simply just the one type.

A few examples of purely Ground-type Pokemon include Diglett, Hippopotas, Silicobra, and Phanpy. There are other Pokemon that contain another element besides Ground that are still good against Poison, but you have to check exactly what it the other type is. Toedscool and Toedscruel are Ground-type and Grass-type, which would not be the wisest choices since Poison is strong against Grass-type.

Purely Psychic-types include Spoink, Espeon, Gothita, Flittle, and Drowzee. Poison Pokemon also have an advantage over Fairy-type Pokemon, but there are very few that are both Psychic and Fairy with Ralts, Kirlia, and Gardevoir.
