We all know why Fire is weak against Water and Ice weak to Fire but what makes Bug super effective against Psychic and Fighting super effective against Dark and so on.

Fighting is super effective againts dark for the reason that fighting types represet honorable way to fight while dark types represent the dirty way to fight, and honorable>dirty. As for bug being super effective against dark and psychic... idk.. maybe they have... bug allergies?

Best guesses:
FIghting>Dark since Dark types are dishonorable in their methods while fighting types fight with honor.
Bugs>Psychic Bugs are a common phobia and considering that psychic is associated with the mind...
Bugs>Dark Um... Bugs thrive in the dark?

Ice>Dragon: Cold blooded things hate the cold

Bug > Psychic because bugs are really annoying and make you lose focus. Ever tried to ignore a big fly flying around your face, buzzing in your ear, crawling all over you? It's like that.

Well I think the reason grass is weak to steel is because blades cut grass, simple as that, flyings weakness to rock brings to mind the saying "kill 2 birds with 1 stone".

Grass isn't weak to steel.
