Best not to combine Pokemon from lower tiers with the higher ones. The Pokemon from NU/RU in your team will be almost completely shut down in OU.
aqua tail in sun....                                                         seems legit
Just fyi Poison is the worst offensive typing in the game.

it is only supereffective against:
*Grass

Resisted by:
*Psychic
*Rock
*Bug


Weak Against:
*Psychic
*Ground

Non Effective against:
*Steel
*Poison

and almost all typing of Poisons is awful:

Grass/Poison- Flying, Ice, Fire, Ground, Psychic
Ghost/Poison- Ghost, Dark, Psychic, Ground
Fighting/Poison- Flying, Ground, Psychic(x4)

the only beneficial Poison combos are:

Dark/Poison:
Weak: Ground
Resists: Ghost, Grass, Dark
Immune: Psychic, Poison
Neutral: Fighting, Bug, both of which normally kill Dark types.

Poison is an OK type to have as a secondary to block Toxic, but Mono Poison has way too many flaws to be useful outside of NU and the only really threatening Poison types (Tentacruel, Gengar ) are OU.

just food for thought.
@Fizzcube Monotype is different
I edited it to make it better.
@Kyron: Ariados and Seviper though...
