Is steel/ghost the best type combination?

And if it is, is there any chance nintendo will make a legendary with this type combination?

It'd be one of the best defensive types, sure.

Defensive nightmare to those battling it, especially if the trainer uses potions or it knows the move Rest (or any health restoring move). I don't want it to be a legendary though. I'm getting a little ticked off at the number of legendaries that were introduced in the fourth and fifth gens.

I don't get why everyone is saying that Desukan should be steel/ghost

Ancient egpyt was all natural resources, so rock or ground would have been the only other appropriate type combos, which is also evident in it's appearance.

Desukan's dex entry says his sarcophagus is made of pure gold, that's where people are getting steel type.

I really think Ground would have been prefect for him

If anything, I thought Goruugo should have been Steel/Ghost. Ground is so random... Desukan would have been made better use of the typing though with it's great defense and if it had Levitate, but Ghost/Rock would with Levitate would have been good too. It still fits and makes a nice addition to SS teams with a Sp.def boost.

And yes, Ghost/Steel is arguably the best Defensive Type combination in the game (especially with Levitate...). I've been waiting for it for "Generations."
