4x weak to fire, ground, and fighting. Ice is so bad defensively that even with the coverage of steel it still has too many weakneses.

Ice is not weak to Ground.

Anyway, Ice/Rock would still be far worse.

Ground is not SE against Ice.

It still has a ton of resistances though so its far from the worst.

It's ironic because you'd think Ice, Steel and Rock would be defensive and tough just based on logic, but it actually sucks. The mechanics of Pokemon.

Steel is a great defensive type. People are too quick to say "Oh, but Fire and Fighting and Ground are such great offensive types," but a major part of the reason they (particularly Fire) are so great offensively is because they beat Steel.

Now Ice and Rock...
