This poll is now closed.
So I thought about doing one of these for awhile so here it goes! My first attempt at a on going poll. I'll go through each type once under regular typing then a second time under inverse rules.

****REMINDER****
This is not about the specific pokemon that is that type (ex. Blaziken/Talonflame are broken so Fire is broken) but more about how well the chart is balanced and how well the type functions (ex. Most Grass are meant to be support but have too many weaknesses to fulfill that role).

First up is Results!!! From Thursday's second attempt (Sorry about that...)

Day 5 is Ground! Hm...

Type Spread-
Defense
-2 Resists (Poison, Rock)
-3 Weakness (Water, Grass, Ice)
-1 Immunity (Electric)

Offense
-2 resists (Bug, Grass)
-5 SE (Fire, Electric, Poison, Rock, Steel)
-1 Immunity (Flying)

Other
-Most Ground have higher HP, Attack and low speed
-Most Ground Attacks are physical with Earth Power being the only hard hitting special move
-Not a lot of other attacks besides Spikes
-SE on Steel, SE on Steel, SE on Steel
-Weak to 2 very common attacks
-the huge amount of Flying/Levitate pokes around can cause a wasted turn with a switch-in

Have fun!

It's an outstanding offensive typing, but is hindered by its inability to hit non-roosting Flying-types and levitaters. Defensively, it's pretty bad, although the electric immunity is nice.

I'd say a solid 8.
