the best hypothetical type combination

#1Big_IsaacPosted 2/2/2013 4:37:13 AM
what is it in you opinion?

I'd say:
defensively: Dragon / Steel
weak to fighting and ground
resistant to normal, water, flying, grass, electric, psychic, rock, bug, ghost, dark and steel (11 in total)
immune to poison
neutral to fire, ice and dragon

offensively: ice / electric
because of STAB Boltbeam

Ground / Fighting.

Gets Super Effective stab on Dark, Electric, Fire, Normal, Poison, Rock, and Steel.

And least would be one of the best offensive types in my opinion

Ghost/Steel w/ levitate for Defensive. It's like Psychic/Steel but even better because it's got a Fighting immunity with it. Plus 3 immunities (4 if levitate) is excellent.

Why hasn't anyone mentioned Ghost/Dark yet?

It would be the best with Wonderguard, that's for sure.
Without it, it isn't very good in terms of offensive STAB coverage (good v.s. Psychic, Ghost, and... nothing else) or resistances (Normal, Psychic, Fighting immune and Poison resist).
Sure it may have no weaknesses but getting hit by normal effectiveness moves is going to hurt.
#6CakeOfLiesPosted 2/2/2013 6:38:52 AM
Defensively, I'd say Ghost/Normal with Levitate.
Four immunities (because of Levitate) and a couple resistances. Plus, it's immune to a couple things that are normally SE against either Normal or Ghost (immune to Fighting and Ghost respectively).
Its only weakness is Dark, and that's only 2x effective.

Another great combo defensively is Bug/Steel (done before, I know). Its only weakness is its 4x weakness to fire (why are you sending a Bug Type or Steel Type against a Fire Type anyway?) and it has a ton of resistances and an immunity to Poison.


Offensively, I'd say... Dragon/Fire.
Perfect neutral coverage. Name a single Pokemon that resists both (Heatproof doesn't count as a resistance).

Heatran.

Unless there's Mold Breaker or Turboblaze, since the only Dragon/Fire has it.

Ah, yes. Good. Exactly what I was looking for.

Give this Dragon Earthquake... -_- He resists a vast majority of what Heatran can do to him anyway.
