I think {celebi} has the worst type combination in the entire game, being a grass-psychc pokemon makes it vulnerable to a lot of moves (fire-ice-poison-flying-bug 4x-dark-ghost......to be continued)

Can you tell me a worse type combination?

I think Ice/Ground and Bug/Ground are nuisances. They also have a lot of weaknesses, like Fire, Water, and Grass.

Fire/Rock is the absolute worst type combo in the game. I imagine that Magcargo would have to have run over Ken Suigimori's dog (or something) to deserve that.

I find that Geodudes and it's evolutions are easy to beat with water, grass and ground. Mainly for the fact that it has the type combo of Ground/Rock. I think that Ground/Rock are pretty bad, but Grass/Bug and Fire/Rock are bad too.

perhaps rock/steel. With that extremely common move earthquake, weak to water, weak to fire. Almost any type with rock is pretty bad

Rock/steel is not weak to fire, it also has a 4X weakness to fighting moves

oh you're right, soz. Thats the stupid thing I would do, think I was just talking about steel types.

I also thought about Shedinja, with bug/ghost. It is weak to fire, flying, rock ghost, and dark. Pretty bad if you ask me.

Water and Flying Gyradose can evade EQ but not moves like T-bolt

What's the point of having rock AND ground? Can't they be one?

Anyway, I think it's pointless to have normal and flying. It makes the flying pokemon get regular damage from fighting moves.

Because Some Rock types don't have the qualities of a ground type or have another type (i.e. {nosepass} , {aerodactyl} ), and some ground types don't have the qualities of a rock type or have another type (i.e. {dugtrio} , {gligar} ). Plus, it makes it easier to beat up on the first gym if you have a grass/water type.

it must be really hard to be a rock/psychic type if you didnt have levitate like the only current rock/psy types do ( {lunatone} , {solrock} )
since its 2x weak to water, grass, ground, bug, ghost, steel, dark - 7 types

or an ice/rock type if they decide to make one:
2x resist: normal, ice, poison, flying - 4
2x weak: water, grass, ground, rock - 4
4x weak: fighting, steel - 2

Also: anything with multiple 4x weaknesses (bug/grass, rock/ground, fire/rock)

<font color="999999">I guess we all like immunities, like the levitating thingies that just make you NOT to worry about earthquake, unless someone uses "Skill Swap"...

Anyways, Grass/Ice is a terrible combo IMO, and even... Rock/Ice is a terrible type-combo... and Ice is a terrible combo as well!... wait... Ice-type pkmn sucks! -- the only thing I like from the Ice types, are the moves. (and just some of them :?)

I think Grass/Dark isn't that cool. 4x weakness to Bug sttacks and 2x to fire,fighting,ice,poison and flying.

Well, yeah Magcargo's pretty awkward, 4x weak to Water, 4x ground. And if (really IF) there were a Psychic/Ghost, itll be even worse. 4x Ghost weakness. 4x Dark Weakness.

[color=slategray]

I believe that Fire/Ground would be 4x weak to Water, but only 2x weak to Ground.

{articuno} Ice/Flying + Rock Slide/Rock Tomb/ Rock Blast/ Rock Throw/ Rock Splash...??? = dead {articuno}

one i find a bit of a nuisance is rock/flying - {aerodactyl}

its not that it has any 4x weaknesses, but that its list of weaknesses (water, electric, ice, rock, steel) includes so many common moves. thunder(bolt), ice beam/blizzard, surf, rockslide, meteor mash. basically, it dies to anyone which can withstand a hit or two and has one of those ultra-common moves.

I would think that, in the case of worst type pair, it would be Psychic and Ghost, if there were one.

Personally, I've had bad experiences with the Psychic/Fighting.
