What if we had a Pokemon (Let's say an Arceus mega-evo) that had an ability that made it every type at once, essentially giving it STAB with every attack? Also giving it maximum immunities. Immune to Electric, Ground, Normal, Ghost, Dragon, Fighting, Poison and Psychic.
What would it be weak to?
Well we can take the above list and knock everything on it off of the new list for type testing, so we have to look at...
Fire, Water, Flying, Grass, Rock, Ice, Bug, Steel, Dark and Fairy.
Fire is super effective against Grass, Ice, Bug, and Steel but not very effective against Dragon, Fire, Rock, and Water, meaning it'd do standard 1 times damage to our Arceus Mega Pokemon.
Water is super effective against Fire, Ground, and Rock but, just like fire, is not very effective against the three types Dragon, Grass, and water, also being standard 1 times damage.
Flying is the same, super against Fighting, Grass and Bug but NVE against Electric, Steel, Rock.
Grass would be PITIFUL. It's super effective against Ground, Rock and Water, but has a total of 7 types it's NVE against. We can narrow that out to 4, meaning it'd do 1/16th, or about .06 of the damage. Might as well be immune to it except Leech Seed would hurt it. (Or would it since it's Grass type?)
Rock. Being SE against Bug, Fire, Flying AND Ice but only NVE to Fighting, Steel and Ground, we finally found Mega Arceus' weakness, 2x to Rock! Prepare your Rock Slides!
Ice, like Fire and water, balances out at 1 times.
Bug is a nice type as it's super effective against Dark and Psychic, being powerful types (and Grass), but it lacks on Mega Arceus due to it's SEVEN NVE's! Just like Grass, expect 1/16th.
Dark is Super Effective on Ghost and Psychic and NVE on Dark, Fairy, and Fighting. Expect 1/2 damage.
Steel is just like dark, SE on Fairy, Rock and Ice but NVE on Electric, Fire, Steel, and Water. 1/2.
Fairy balances out at three and three, so expect one times damage.
So Mega Arceus would only have one Weakness and it would only be 4 times while having other impressive defenses. --- Nintendo Network: Lightzeaka 3DS Friend Code: 4296-4396-5385
You forgot Steel's Rock resistance, so it's only 2x weak to Rock, however, it would be 4x weak to Freeze Dry as well. --- 3DS FC: 1590-4884-9269 | PKMN X - IGN: Sapphire [Fire FS: Growlithe, Charmeleon, Braixen] The true Triple-Completionist of the Denpa Men series! Mad respect!
Yes, nothing. Part Fighting means nulled. --- 3DS FC: 1590-4884-9269 | PKMN X - IGN: Sapphire [Fire FS: Growlithe, Charmeleon, Braixen] The true Triple-Completionist of the Denpa Men series! Mad respect!
And Freeze Dry decides to be super effective against a water Pokemon regardless of even the mode of the battle. Would it be 2 times then? --- Nintendo Network: Lightzeaka 3DS Friend Code: 4296-4396-5385
