Flying , Rock and Dark. Shedinja is immune to everything except those 3 and Fire and Ghost. Normal types are immune to Ghost. Flash fire gives immunity to fire.
DNA wrote:
Want a hint? Start naming off the 17 types in your head (write them down if you need to). Then, start scratching off every type you know that has an immunity by a type OR an ability until you have narrowed it down to the correct list.

That helped.

The problem with that is that Wonder Guard does not block damage from types - it blocks damage from moves that are "super-effective". If you use that argument, you could say that NO type has an immunity whatsoever. (Trace Porygon2 copies Wonder Guard, making it only weak to Fighting, but Ghost is immune to that.)

Sorry, but that answer isn't correct. Brownie points to you, though.

Blocks damage from moves that are not super-effective... therefore making it immune to them.

You answered your own thing. None of the types. Good work

Well, let's see. Assuming DNA was right, and not giving away the answer, making Skeleton false, then it would have to be this:

Normal does not affect the Ghost type
Fire is prevented from Flash Fire
Water is prevented by Water Absorb
Electric is prevented by Lightning Rod
Fighting does not affect the Ghost type
Poison does not affect the Steel type
Ground does not affect the Flying type
Psychic does not affect the Dark type
Ghost does not affect the Normal type

That leaves eight types: Grass, Ice, Flying, Bug, Rock, Dragon, Dark, and Steel.

I have to admit I'm feeling pretty confident in my answer this time around.

...like I said, Wonder Guard doesn't grant immunity to any one specific type. I was pointing out the fallacy in the Wonder Guard argument. (Indeed, you can still hit Wonder Guard users with Thunder Wave and Toxic Spikes.)
And yes, I'm not foolish enough to give the answer away.

...so close...but you overlooked one small detail...

Funny, I was actually thinking about this for something somewhere else a while back. Oh, and the answer is Ice, Flying, Bug, Rock, Dragon, Dark, and Steel. As of Gen-5, Sap Sipper exists. So stuff is immune to Grass.

I know that feel bro.
...Especially when playing Amnesia Attack...
Though my bigger problem in this game is not checking in soon enough to snatch easy points...

Heh, I think we all know that feel at some point or another, so I can totally sympathize. (I actually had that same feeling with the very first question. I thought Alakazam was the answer, then I went and checked my work...and found Darkrai was 5 points faster. Ahahaha, the frustration.) Amnesia Attack is even worse.

I give the 3 points to Mektar for this question. However, DragoBoy did well in thinking outside the box, so I give him 1 point.

Quote:
DragoBoy - 9
Mektar - 5
Cherrygrove - 3
Dare234 - 3
ShinyLucario - 3
Shuckle-rock$ - 1


Here's an interesting little tidbit to consider. How many Pokemon are both shorter AND lighter than the first Pokemon in their evolutionary chain?

Want a hint? There's less than 5 of them...but there's more than 0. (Yeah, every so often I give out trick questions. This isn't one of them, though.)

Than the first, huh... mmmmmmmmmmmm...... here are some guesses

Highlight to view spoiler.
Belossom... Porygon-Z...

I know Alakazam is lighter than Kadabra due to losing that fat tail, and Dragonite isn't as long as Dragonair, but those aren't the final and first forms we're talking about. Shedinja is nearly weightless but I don't think it or Ninjask is smaller than Nincada... I'm not even sure about Porygon-Z, I know Porygon 2 is smaller and lighter than Porygon, but that's it.

Here's my guess. I'm just going to name the evolution.
Porygon-Z
Alakazam
Haunter
Chandelure

Oh shooot

Highlight to view spoiler.
The question doesn't say final forms. Porygon 2 is a one, Bellossom is another... and now I'm not so sure about -Z. So I'll go with just these two

Ahahahaha, I probably should have asked to name them as well, but I guess it isn't that big of a deal.
The answer is 2 - Bellossom and Porygon2.

Quote:
DragoBoy - 9
Mektar - 5
Skeleton - 3
Cherrygrove - 3
Dare234 - 3
ShinyLucario - 3
Shuckle-rock$ - 1


Hmm, let's see, let's see...

The definition of an NFE Pokemon (not fully evolved) is a Pokemon that is part of at least a two-stage evolutionary line, and is capable of evolving at least one more time.
With that in mind, can any of you name the particular NFE Pokemon that has the highest base stat in each of the following areas:

HP, Attack, Defense, Special Attack, Special Defense, Speed


You will get 1 point for each one guessed correctly. You can guess one or all of them, but you only get one guess per category.

HP- Chansey
Attack- Gabite (???)
SpAtk- Haunter
Defense- Boldore
Speed- I'm gonna say... Kadabra, anyone?
*crosses fingers, hoping for at least one point*

funny story: I didn't even look up any of the answers while making this question. Let's see what we have so far.

HP - well, Chansey, obviously (250). 1 point to Shuckle.
Attack - It's not Scyther.
Defense - It's not Rhydon.
Special Attack - It actually isn't Kadabra, oddly enough.
Special Defense - It's not Chansey. Or Caterpie.
Speed - Is it Scyther? lessee... nope, apparently not...

The other 5 are still up for grabs for the rest of you.

Edit: Oh, Samurott posted since? Well, all your other answers are incorrect too, so no points to you

Duosion beats Kadabra by 5 points, and ironically has the same Sp. Attack stat as Reuniclus (125). Now to tack an Eviolite on it +1 to Skeleton

@Samurott: because these questions are challenging
