Super Paper Mario
Poison Pokeys mainly attack by slamming their bodies at Mario and lobbing their body segments at him as well. There is a chance that if Mario doesn't guard against the Poison Pokey's attacks, then it could possibly leave him Poisoned.
Unless he has the Spike Shield badge equipped, Mario should stick to using Hammer moves on Poison Pokeys. The Poison Pokeys are usually seen in groups so the Quake Hammer should be used. Also, having Koops, Vivian, or Bobbery as partners work as well (though Koops is a better choice).
