Ok before anyone shares their opinions, we can all agree that Dark/Ghost seems like #1. Right? Anywho, I say a good type combo is Electric/Flying, because the flying half can prevent ground attacks from working, while Electric attacks wouldn't be as effective. That's all I can come up w/, so share your thoughts.

I like steel/flying. Steel is weak against ground, so flying type nulls that. It also gets a good defense, plus, normal-type attacks won't do much. Also, flying gives it strong attacks, like fly.

I also like ground/water. Water is weak to electric types, but since it's also ground, it does nothing. They can learn a lot of good attacks that can lower accuracy(sand attack, mud slap) and also do a lot of damage(surf, hydro pump). But, it has the major draw back of being extremely weak to grass. Luckily, most grass-type attacks aren't really strong, and focus on status conditions.

That's all I can think of, but if I have any more, I'll be sure to post them.

Fly is a weak attack.
Giga Drain, though a weak attack, can still pwn the face off of a Quagsire.

But, I do agree that Water / Ground is an awesome combination :D
Quagsire and Gastrodon are mighty cool. Not the blue Gastrodon, though.

I like Dragon/Psychic because it gives you a lot of options in battle. For instance, Latios and Latias can learn attacks of almost, if not, every type.

Ludicolo and Grass / Water if awesome!
They cover each other wonderfully and is nice for typing of moves.

The Bringer!

Kingdra has a good type combination, Water/Dragon has only one weakness (Dragon) and can learn ice moves to hit the dragons back hard.

Poison/dark typing has only one weakness to ground, but other than that, its pretty stable typing wise. steel/psychic are only weak to fire and ground.

Revel, and if you use Bronzong which is Steel / Psychic which has Levitate, only fire will be hurting him.

Another god one is Fighting / Psychic. Only flying can Super Effective hit it.

Pretty much most things with Steel, because of the amount of resistances.

However, most things paired with steel share common weaknesses so it is unable to resist a great deal more, but it is hit for x4 Super Effective more often...
Skuntank is pretty good with Poison / Dark...

I agree with that. I'd also teach it Earthquake, for the chance that a Fire attack would come from a Fire type.

Kingdra and Palkia have the best combination in my opinion. Water and Dragon are two of the most fierce attacking types.
