No such thing as a flying type?
Should be "wind" type and not flying
Then it wouldn't make sense to be weak to rock or electric. Flying Pokemon are implied to constantly be in the air despite standing on the ground in their animations. Also, a lot of Flying type moves don't use the wind directly; they just dive in on you. I suppose resisting Fighting would make sense, but not being super effective against it.

1. Not all fires are plasma. There needs to be a certain amount of ionization for it to be considered that.
2. What we as fire is not always "burning gasses", sometimes it's super heated smoke. Smoke is a sold.
3. Lavaplume is called smoke burst in japan, nothing to do with lava.
4. All of these share extreme heat, dark does not have something that all of it's moves share, only most of them.
Of course, dark isn't the only type like that, flying type is also pretty ambiguous as others have already pointed out.

Fire is specifically anything burning that resulted from a reaction catalyzed by oxygen. It was my mistake to specifically mention anything beyond that. It was inevitable you'd get hung up on semantics.
Smoke is intrinsic to fire and lava isn't so yay Japan. Awesome show, great job!
So I change my vote to... SUNNY DAY! The sun sure as hell ain't fire. BAM.
All dark moves are low down and dirty tricks, whether they be biting at weak points for massive damage or calling upon dark forces to harm your enemies.

"Usually poison as secondary"? Uhh, bulbasaur line is the only starter with poison as a secondary type.
They are the prey and we are the hunters.
It's funny how people believe most of the Grass starters become Poison. Venusaur is the only one, the rest have been pure except Torterra. I don't think Chespin will stay pure either.
That said, it is strange that there are no non legendary pure flying types. Is dual typing with Normal necessary? It nullifies the Fighting resistance and doesn't offer much.
