Is the current Type Chart unbalanced?

poison needs to be 2x against water and ice should resist water

thats it


Ice melts in water. Ice weakness to water.

Ice, Fire, and Grass tend to be glass cannons.


I see a big problem in this statement. Grass isn't a cannon at all. It's just frail and unable to hit almost anything.

Ice IS a glass cannon, but it's so frail, that it is essentially useless.

Fire SHOULDN'T be a glass cannon. It has 5 resistances, which is some of the most in the game. What makes it a glass cannon is purely a side-effect of the imbalance elsewhere. Grass is nearly useless offensively and isn't too tough defensively either, so you don't see many grass type attacks. Ice is so horribly frail that it's not seen as much, and its again not as useful as a resistance.

Ice IS water. Ice can cool water, and water can cool ice. If you put a container of water in really cold ice, the water will freeze as well, so that can go either way

I think water seems kind of OP...


Yeah, because Electric type moves aren't already on every team in the first place.


Which just furthers that electric is probably a bit overpowered. Electric is probably on every team due to water....


Electric is only resisted by itself, Dragon, and Grass.
Grass is an awful defensive type and that's sorta the point of Dragon. Electric attacks would be everywhere regardless.


Don't forget, you know, the Ground immunity part.


Yeah. People use Electric BECAUSE of Water being OP (and because, well, it's cool).

Only poison needs changes. It's bad on both offense and defense.

Make it SE against bugs and water and posion offensive has a reason to exist, taking out two of the nastier types (Water can stand to gain another weakness, as it already has only two, one of which is terrible)

Then the problem is more on what moves and stats of a Pokemon has. Volcarona for instance has a terrible typing but its stats and movepool make it a really good character.

Most of the time, offense typing is generally for getting STABs. All we need really is a good type combo that complements each other, great stat distribution, or good movepools.
