Fire/Dragon- Completely unresisted STAB. STAB Fire Blast, Overheat, Eruption, and Flare Blitz*

*A pokemon with such typing may not have access to all mentioned moves. Strong potential STAB moves from strong attacking types are only mentioned for reference


Fire/Dragon is only completely unresisted if you have something like Turboblaze. Otherwise, Heatran resists it. It's just that the only Fire/Dragon-type in the game does, in fact, have Turboblaze.


I'm not including abilities and items in this. In terms of the type chart Fire/Dragon is completely unresisted.

Well, there's still the issue of Fairy's rumored immunity to Dragon. If so, that will become a much easier type combo to resist (Marill does, in fact.)

Yeah, I was thinking about that too, but the issue is that we don't know anything for sure about Fairy, so it's best to just keep the discussion about the pre-fairy type chart.

Personally, I think Electric.

Well, if we count abilities, obviously Heatran would resist Fire/Dragon STAB if it's not Reshiram. And we'll have to wait to see if Fairy really is resistant or immune to Dragon.

Ghost/Dark seems like a no brainer for me. No weaknesses and only steel types resist the two stab moves.
