People really have favorite types? Why? Favorite Pokémon, favorite move, heck, even favorite NPC are all understandable. But favorite type? Wow.

Let's see, just on my standard OU team, I have Grass, Fighting, Psychic, Bug, Fire, Steel, Ground, Flying, and Dragon. However, my top 3 favorite Pokémon are Volcarona, Swampert, and Swellow, so I should add Water and Normal to the list. I guess that means I hate Dark, Ghost, Ice, Poison, Electric, and Rock.


Personally, I have favorite types based on different factors like the fact that my favorite RPG element is fire, that I think Dark-type Pokemon are completely badass, and what I think about the concept of the attacks (why I don't like Fighting type).

Also Volcarona doesn't count as a Fire-type. I have disowned it from that family.

Fun fact: The median amount of rankings you would need to have one that is identical to yours is about 249,732,592,000,000 assuming that all types are favored equally.

((17!-1)/17!)^(249732592000000)=.5

I know you all were wondering. I accept your thanks in advance.

Why do I have to move with the crowd of kids that hardly notice I'm around? I work myself to death just to fit in.

1. Water - Very varied designs and have thousands more possibilities, great in battle.
2. Bug - As Water, though best paired with Steel in battle.
3. Poison
4. Ghost
5. Grass
6. Rock - Has thankfully moved away from generic lumps (Geodude) to colourful enigmas (Lileep, Archen...). Great offensively.
7. Steel
8. Ground
9. Electric - Too many Pikaclones and cat-dogs for my liking, but the Gen V Electrics are great. I still use TW on fast leads.
10. Ice - Ice-type moves are great fun to use, but the type has suffered from being too slow to use them for STAB.
11. Psychic
12. Fighting
13. Fire - Basically the Mary-Sue type when I was growing up in Gen I. Too many "let's-make-animals-red" designs.
14. Dragon - Being a plot point in every game since Emerald has made me tired of them.
15. Dark
16. Flying - Awful lot of generic-looking Pokémon, and had more or less of a monopoly on Fly until recently.
17. Normal - Has turned from the type of interesting, outside-the-box Pokémon to early route rodents and birds.
