For example, a Poisoned Cascoon evolving into Dustox, who now has the Poison type. Since Poison types are immune to the status problem itself, what would happen?

Soaking a Pokemon will let it get hit by any status condition.
But at that point, it is not a Fire/ Poison/ Ground/ Ice - type.
Wow. I never knew that!
Really? Gawd. Something new there...
