The top four from each poll will be placed in the semifinals!

Due to a 3-way tie, Fighting/Flying, Fire/Water and Electric/Fighting are in!

Post your reason why you want that type combination, why it should be in over the others and (optional) make a pokemon idea based upon it.

Still going with Ghost/Steel here.
With the most number of resistances, it has the potential to become a great tank. If given levitate, it will only have one weakness and a whopping 4 immunities.

Poison/Dragon may sound cool but its STABs only get SE coverage against two types. Both STABs are walled by Steel as well.

Fire/Ice has a nice STAB flamethrower/ice beam. All it needs is Thunderbolt and it gets neutral/SE coverage on everything except Lanturn. However, there's that 4x weakness to rock and stealth rock.

Grass/Dragon sounds like a cool typing but it gets lots of Grass' weaknesses too.

Fighting/Flying has nice STABs that cover each others NVE types or weaknesses (Fighting>Rock and Ice, Flying>Bug). Actually seems pretty good.

Fighting/Dragon is really good too with STAB coverage being able to hit everything for neutral damage. Only thing that will resist it is... Ghost/Steel.

A Poison/Dragon Pokemon based around the Komodo Dragon.

Yes or yes?

Psychic/Dark
Pretty cool with only one weakness (Bug, 4x). I also see potential for something like this to learn BoltBeamThower, and have very high special attack.

Fire/Water
This is actually a nice typing as Water negates Fire's weakness to Water while Fire negates Water's weakness to Grass. Water STAB also helps v.s. Rock and Ground types, which are two of the three weaknesses.

Electric/Fighting
This one's very nice- Electric to cover Fighting's weakness to Flying. STABs will have problems against Golurk, though.

Electric/Dark
Pretty cool typing- Electric only adds one weakness to the Dark type (which only has two). It gets three resistances to Electric, Flying and Steel in the process. Will most likely be a fast glass cannon.

How the heck is Ghost/Steel winning? It just seems so...boring.
