Steel has horrible coverage as well. XD It should be included.

Steel may be a poor choice for attacking, but it's excellent for tanks and walls (Skarmory and Bronzong, anyone?).

Anyway, my vote has to go for Poison, Normal, and Psychic.

Those would be it. Ghosts are very good...many resistances, 2 types don't even touch them...great pokemon. Steels are great for defensive play, but offensive they are lol...except meteor mash on metagross.

We're not discussing specific Pokemon, keep in mind, we're talking about the types advantages/weaknesses.

I beg to differ on Normal-types being weak, absolutely no advantages but only one disadvantage. Think of how many disadvantages Flying-type Pokemon have. Well now, for my opinion on the weakest Pokemon types:

~Normal
~Steel
That's it =O

@Anti-Pop: What do you mean 2 types not even touching them? I can only think of Normal, y'know =l

Those were just examples. The advantage of the Steel type is its few weaknesses and many resistances, making it excellent for walls and tanks (such as Skarmory or Bronzong).

Sadly, my favorite type, poison, has bad coverage. lol effective on grass types only.
That being said, poison does have some versatile Pokemon. Plus, don't forget popular guys like Crobat and Gengar are poison too.

Fighting. Fighting types don't hurt ghosts. To respond to a later post, fighting types are nice attack types, and only have 2 weaknesses...that's pretty good. And it is the one sure-fire way to destroy TTar, the ultimate threat in the metagame.

Based Only on Base Stats...

1) Dragon with an average of 82.3 (494 Total)
2) Steel with an average of 76.7 (460 Total)
3) Psychic with an average of 73.8 (443 Total)
15) Normal with an average of 62.7 (376 Total)
16) Grass with an average of 62.3 (374 Total)
17) Bug with an average of 58.5 (351 Total)

Overall I would say the worst three types are Bug, Normal and Poison in no order.

hard to say but i think those r the weakest
bug (weak attacks)
grass (very slow)
normal (don't have super effect against any type)

There really can't be a worst type. If a type has bad offense, it usually has good defense, like steel. And types like rock, that have great coverage, have a ton of weaknesses as well. If I had to chose one I'd say poison though. Worst attack type, and weak to ground.

grass bug and poison based on weaknesses, stats and the funny thing is, you'll find a combination of these quite often bug/poison grass/poison

Poison is definitely the worst because of its really poor type coverage. The only other type I think is bad is Psychic. Its type coverage is poor as well.

I have to agree that Bug, Posion and Normal have really bad type coverage.

As soon as I learnt that Bug were effective against psychic, I kinda changed my opinion on Bug because most Psychic pokemon are really strong.. so one Bug move could knock them down in some cases, which caught my interest..
I think that Normal pokemon are the worst off.. although they are the cutest.. such a risk to use them -_-;

I'd agree that bugs are effective not only against psychics, but also to grass and dark types also. countless times, i find myself with scizor against kazam or umbreon. theyd be taken out with one blow. bugs also have substantial speed.

I would say fire types are a little unfairly treaten. Earthquake is almost on every trainer's team, at least one pokemon has it, and that just sucks for the fire types. In 4th gen pokemon, only a total of 5 pokemon are fire types and at final stages, thats only 2 ( infernape and rapidash) while comparing to water types in the 4th gen d/p pokedex, there are 34. I really love fire types though...

Funny you mention that, the other day I only noticed the same thing.. they're really tight with fire types, yet the 4th gen seem to be swarming with all of the other types.. there aren't many direct Electric types either which is also sad.. they did include Pikachu though, which makes me happy =D

I think Grass and Rock sine they do have the most weakness, Grass having 5 and Rock having well 5 as well. Some odd reason people say that Ghost are the weakest because there just hating because Ghost have an immunity to Normal and Fighting type moves :P
