Here's Which Poison-Type Pokémon You Should Train, Based on Your Zodiac Sign

Poison-type Pokémon are totally underrated.

They're strong against tough-to-beat Fairy-type Pokémon, resistant to many types and possess abilities that will slowly drain an enemy's HP turn by turn, but they're not popular enough to make it onto many Pokémon teams.

Looking to add one to yours? Keep reading to find out exactly which Pokémon is the right match for you, based on your zodiac sign.

Aries (March 21 – April 19): Nidoqueen

Ariens are natural born leaders full of fiery determination, much like powerful matriarch Nidoqueen. She never backs away from a challenge and can guide her pack to overcome any obstacle that stands in her path. A team of Aries and Nidoqueen will be impossible to take down.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20): Gulpin

Taurus is considered the most discerning sign of the zodiac and are known for their strong work ethic, so it would be good to balance them out with a Pokémon like Gulpin. Gulpin is known for its powerful stomach, which can dissolve pretty much anything. While a Taurean and Gulpin will be opposites in terms of taste, they'll both work extremely hard together in order to accomplish their goals. Giant Gulpin in the Pokémon anime

Gemini (May 21 – June 20): Mareanie

Geminis are social beings with complex, multi-sided personalities, so they'll need a Pokémon pal who'll understand them and never leave their side. Mareanie is a Pokémon that can be cute as well as deadly. While dangerous to its enemies, it's totally loyal to its friends. Geminis hate to be alone, but with Mareanie, they'll never have to be.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22): Roselia

Sensitive Cancerians and lovely Roselias can make the perfect pair. While Cancer tunes in to the emotions of others, sometimes getting overwhelmed with their powerful feelings, a well-loved Roselia can provide a sweet scent to soothe Cancer's soul. Despite Roselia's poison, a Cancerian will be about to see the good in its heart.

Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22): Alolan Muk

Leos are big personalities who crave attention, and few Pokémon would be able to attract more attention than the vivacious and boldly colored Alolan Muk. It's strange to think that this unique Pokémon gets its gorgeous coloring from eating garbage, but no one will really care when they're dazzled by its appearance. Even a Leo might have a hard time being the focus with it around.

Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22): Dragalge

Virgo is known for being the most studious of the zodiac signs, but as intelligent as they might be, they prefer not to call attention to their achievements. They'll find a kindred spirit in the poisonous seadragon Dragalge, who, despite its power, does its best to camouflage itself as a piece of floating seaweed. Together, Virgo and Dragalge could accomplish great things—and you wouldn't even know it.

Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22): Skorupi

Librans value peace and harmony above all other things, so it may seem weird to have a poisonous critter like Skorupi on their team. This Pokémon may appear scary at first glance, but get to know it better and you'll discover that it can be kind and always willing to lend a helping hand to those in need. Any Libran will deeply value these traits.

Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21): Nihilego

No zodiac sign is more mysterious than Scorpio, so it only makes sense that their ideal Pokémon would be just as enigmatic, such as the Ultra Beast Nihilego. Not only does this creature come from another dimension, but is it a jellyfish or a girl? The world may never know, but Scorpio is the true friend who might just get to the bottom of this puzzle.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21): Gengar

Sagittarians are known for the optimism and love for adventure, making the prankster Gengar a great Pokémon pal. This ghostly figure loves to spook people and will go out of its way to plan the perfect joke. When Sagittarius and Gengar are together, their creativity will know no bounds.

Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19): Crobat

Capricorns are famous for their strong sense of responsibility and ambition, making them worthy of befriending Crobat. This silent, powerful Pokémon will only evolve when its trainer puts in the time and dedication and it is truly happy. Capricorns will also appreciate that Crobat is proof of their devotion and hard work.

Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18): Vileplume

Aquarians are humanitarian nature-lovers of the zodiac sign, so it makes sense that their Pokémon companion would literally be one with nature. Vileplume is sweet and playful, even if its petals contain tons of allergy-causing pollen, and it knows a thing or two about spreading the love. Together, they'll be able to make the world a better place.

Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20): Poipole

Pisces is the most artistic and creative of the zodiac signs, so they obviously require a Pokémon match who can keep up. Poipole may come from another world, but its whimsical nature makes it a beloved Pokémon across dimensions. Poipole is full of wonder and imagination, making them fast friends with any Piscean.
