Worst defensively is actually Grass/Ice.


Technically it's Rock/Ice, but Grass/Ice isn't far behind it:

Dragon/Fire and Water/fairy are the best types offensively.

Dragon/Fire's STABs are only resisted by:
Fairy/Water
Fairy/Rock
Fairy/Dragon
Fairy/Fire
Steel with Flash Fire

Water/Fairy's STABs are only resisted by:
Water/Steel
Poison/Grass
Poison/Water
Steel/Grass
Steel with Water absorb

Dragon/Fighting does come close though it's STABs are only resisted by:
Fairy
Steel/Ghost
Ghost/fairy
Fairy/Bug
Fairy/Psychic
Fairy/Flying
Fairy/Poison

Bug/Flying has never done anyone any favors, so it could be the worst.

Good Offensive typings will typically include Rock, Ice, Fighting, Ground, and sometimes Dragon in them. Water, Dark and Ghost aren't too shabby either. Electric is only good because Water is a great defensive type.

Good Defensive typings will typically include Steel, Water, Dragon, and Ground while avoiding types such as Rock or Ice.


Lol you forgot Fire. This gen it will be particularly important with the nerf to fighting and ice, and buff to steel. Pretty much the best special attacking type.

Pure Electric with Levitate. Unless one uses a Mold Breaker or Gravity, it has no weaknesses.

Dark-Ghost is still a valid option as good, only weak to Fairy.

Dragon/Fighting


I see what you did there. A mon of that type could be beastly and horribly susceptible to Fairy.

Lacking weaknesses isn't good enough to make good defensive typing. That's why Sableye and Spiritomb aren't actually that great currently. A good defensive Pokemon needs resistances. It'f fine if it has a few bad weaknesses too, because those can be dealt with via partners. It's why Ferrothorn + Jelliscent is great or why Celebi + Heatran is great or why Skarmory + Blissey is great.
