Agree/Disagree Pokemon should have their individual weaknesses/strenghts

I'm not saying they should get rid of types completely, but Pokemon should have their weaknesses and strenghts not only dependent on them, and the typing should be more like a guideline to it
Why?
To better balance the gameplay

I thought base stats and movepool differences between pokemon of the same tpye already did that

He's saying typing shouldn't be the end-all thing. For example, Zapdos should be inherently immune to electric attacks.

No, I don't mean the stats, I mean how for example fire moves are strong on ice types, but fire is not believed to be strong on fish-pokemon
Now we take an ice-fish for example that is not part water type, so to better balance the game we could make him more resistant to fire than normal ice-types

All I said was to not let the typing decide weaknesses and resistances etc. but to take them as guidelines, but with changes for individual pokemon, in order to better balance the game

Take Grass/Dark, it's a horrible combination with lots of weaknesses, depending on the pokemon it could then be possible to change them up a little
