I just realize, what is the difference between setting up 1 toxic spikes and 2 toxic spikes?

Is toxic spikes giving damage instead toxic status?

The second layer badly poisons, like Toxic. The first layer is only normal poison, which sucks.

not the worst thing in the world if you're running a poison team that has venoshock.
Normal poison doesn't suck, it's still 1/16 HP loss every turn. Coupled with weather damage, stealth rock etc it can be devastating.
Yeah but on average burn outclasses normal poison because of the attack drop.
