They could even make a pokemon that looks like a shield


They already did. And its counter part has very high attack although its not a sword.


Are you talking about Shieldon & Bastiodon, they look more like they were based off dinosaurs then shields to me, but I guess they can make another pokemon that more closely resembles a shield.


Actually, the Shieldon and Craniados lines are based on an old legend of the spear that pierces any shield and the shield that blocks any attack.

A merchant brought both weapons to the emperor claiming they could do such a thing, but the emperor pointed out the flaw in his logic by saying if that spear could pierce that shield, the shield can't block any attack and vise versa.


It was the birth of contradiction.

The creators said it was because the Dragon type had too many advantages lol.

Because Divine Dragons are super effective against normal dragons.

It's a mythos thing. Dragons are weak against magic in most mythologies, and faeries are magic beings.

Why is psychic good against poison? Why is fighting good against dark? Why is ghost good against ghost? Why is ice even good against dragon?

They're just trying to balance the types. Maybe they didn't do too good a job, but I'm sure that's why.
