Any combination of water/fairy/ground/ghost would be a nice balancing change.

Resist Water and Fighting, neutral to Rock. I think that would suffice. Still not great defensively, but usable at least.


It has to make sense...fighting and rock weakness is just too obvious.


How is fighting weakness obvious/natural? Punching thick ice would hurt like hell


And punching thick rock isn't?

Yeah, I guess that's what you get when you try to combine logic with pokemon

I'll play your little game, but realize what you just said.

The cold makes it harder to punch effectively, and it is very unpleasant to punch cold things.

Rock... fine. From a balance standpoint it is alright though, and balance is more important than trying to make sense of something in a realm that thrives off not making sense.

Ice gets full neutrality to Fire, then. The cold can smother a flame just like a flame can melt ice.

I think that the current type chart makes sense.

But I've always thought that certain ice moves should become water moves if a fire pokemon is on the field.

Also, go see what happens when you punch an icicle. Go ahead. I'll wait.

Add rock to weaknesses and get rid of the bug resistance. Poor bug...
