Choosing Pokemon

Most of Muk's attacks are Poison-type, so choosing a Pokemon resistant to Poison would be recommended. Ground, Rock, Ghost, Steel and other Poison-type Pokemon are recommended. Rock/Ground-types are a common combination and double resistant to Poison making them the best choice, big plus if they also have a Ground-type attack.
