I know that being paralyzed reduces your speed by a lot, and I also know that being burned halves your Attack stat. But does poison have an additional effect(other than losing some HP at the end of each turn)?

Does this count just the disadvantages of poison, or does it count the advantages of poisoning.

I know there are already two answers, but I have a couple more things to add. Poison does damage at the end of every turn. It doesn't lower any stats. Also, if a Pokemon is badly poisoned, the poison does more and more damage at the end of each turn. Basically, no. Poison does not lower any stats. However, it does power up the power of Hex (if your opponent is poisoned) and Facade (if you're poisoned). However, note that the other status conditions do this as well.

Hope this helped.

No, it only causes the poisoned Pokemon the lose HP every turn.

The only stat lowered by being Poisoned is HP over time.
