For kicks, I have tallied how many type combinations have been used and which ones haven't been used. Just to see which types get spread out the most and which ones don't. This includes the confirmed Fairy types and includes mono types. Of course, all of these are susceptible to change in X and Y.

Well, that's it. Of course, as I mentioned earlier, we're likely going to get more of these covered, with the most obvious case being the Fairy type. Normal and Poison are the least paired with type. Surprisingly, 7 of Poison's 9 typing combinations occurred in Gen 1. Any particular type combinations you wish to see? Do you think we'll finally close the gap on a lot of these? Discuss. --- The Blooper has spoken.
I wonder which is gonna hit the 18 mark first. Water or Flying. All that is missing is Water / Fire and Fighting / Flying, Fairy / Flying. I could see the final Flying Pairings filled before Water / Fire.
I want Ice / Poison, Ice / Steel, Ice / Fairy, Grass / Dragon, Poison / Dragon, Fairy / Dragon, Fighting / Ghost, Rock / Ghost and Fairy / Ghost.
Can you guess my three favorite types. Lol. --- Xerneas, The DNAntler Pokemon Currently Awaiting...SSBU, SSB3DS, Pokemon X, Pokemon Y and Watch Dogs.
You forgot Electric/Grass, Electric/Fire, and Electric/Ice, because Rotom doesn't count.
Rotom doesn't count, but a type combination that is only on an event Legendary, that can only obtain it in battle, after using a move to transform, does count? (Meloetta with Normal/Fighting) --- "The most important thing is to never stop questioning." -Albert Einstein. Xbox Live: AlteraLateralus
