It'll still take damage from Poisoning.

One example is Soak. When a Pokemon that should be immune to Poisoning is Soaked, it can be poisoned, e.g. Magezone. It will then take damage from poisoning, and even after switching out (where its type will revert back to Electric/ Steel), it will still be poisoned, and continue to take damage from its poisoned status.

ok thanks
i think the last bit was a glicth
No, it's not a glitch. Once a Pokemon is poisoned, regardless of its original type, it'll continue to take damage from poisoning. Steel Pokemon just can't be poisoned when they have their type immunity, but if the immunity is suppressed, they will take poison damage like any other Pokemon (except poison types).
