Definitely Dark.

Most Dark types have high Attack and/or Special Attack stats, which is very nice. They're also hard to defend against and cause super-effective damage to. Not to mention they're the coolest looking type overall.

Houndoom, Tyranitar, Sneasel, Murkrow, Umbreon, Mightyena, Absol, etc. They all rule.

Meh, I'm more partial to Ground. It is the only type that will beat down Electric, an obscenely overused type, and most Ground Pokemon have excellent Defense and Attack scores, despite their weakness towards Special types. But then again, you need heavy, reliable physical attackers to balance out the Special-attackers in your team, right? That's what Ground is there for. They ward off Steel, Poison, Fire, Rock, and the aforementioned Electric with ease, making Ground potentially indestructible against a multitude of types. There are also many powerful Pokemon that are Ground or partially Ground: Golem, Sandslash (my personal favorite) Swampert, Gligar, Donphan, Steelix, Nidoking/queen, Dugtrio, Rhydon, and, of course, the omnipotent Groudon, who has secured himself in many a team.

Too bad almost every electric Pokmon packs a Hidden Power of ice, grass, or water these days. =\

Indeed, indeed. *sighs* But no Type is perfect, right? *glares at Metagross* I suppose the most Special-oriented Ground-type would be Piloswine, if I am not mistaken.... In any case, I still vouch for Ground, despite the glaring Special weakness. I wish Attack and Defense power were more important in the contemporary battle scenario, however. Special seems to be taking over.

I like electric types for no reason other than the fact that my top favourite Pokemon all fall under that type. o.o;; I also like psychic, but not nearly as much. XP

Well, well looks like you've just ran into one *points to his avatar* XD.

Do I really need to explain what my favorite type is? Good... but I do want to add some content so I'll tell you anyway :P

What got me into liking the dragon types so much? Well, the primary reason is the fact that I already liked dragons and the stories associated with them way before pokemon came into my life. But gaming-wise, I think what I really like about dragon types is that they're resistant to many types, even the annoying electric types, w00t! And Dragonite, being my absolute favorite pokemon is one of the few pokemon that can take down a legendary fairly easily... well in most cases, lol.

Inner Focus is blehor Intimidate like Salamence would have been good too.

Favorite type...Hmm...I'd have to go with Steel.

It is the cheapest type hands down, most elements of the game are uneffective against it.

Steel, Dark, Dragon, Ghost, Rock, Bug, Psychic, Flying, Poisen(which doesn't even effect it!), Grass, Ice and Normal.

Thats ALOT of elements, way too cheap IMO and all those resistences + good defenses is what makes Registeel such a great tank and is why Metagross is so amazing.

Psychic....no contest. My fav Alakazam is part of that type. I just believe that there are many pokemon that are great with psychic. Of course, many dropped off in R/S.... :disappoin

My favourite pokemon type would have to be water! ^_^

I said mythology NOT pokemon. I'll name 5 dragons: European Draco occidentalis magnus, Knucker Draco troglodytes, Asian Lung Draco orientalis, Wyvern Draco africanus, and Marsupial Draco marsupial. I bet your unfamiliar with a few of these. I know more than you! I'll tell you what each one is. The European is about 45 feet long, and is your traditional fire-breathing, scaley-winged dragon. The Knucker looks like a mini European except his body is long like a serpents and his wings are too small to fly. He also uses venom instead of fire. An Asian Lung is a Chinese Dragon. The Wyvern is like a European except bigger and does not have the two front legs/arms. A marsupial dragon is like a dragon kangaroo with huge hind legs and a pouch. It cannot fly. I'm positive you didn't know that!

Oh yeah, Rayquaza Master, don't double post (or triple post in this case) and I'm sorry but I had to group some types toghether because the maximum was 10 choices. And Rayquaza Master, you didn't even vote for the dragon type!

black_eevee
April 12th, 2004, 04:29 AM
T_T I couldn't vote for normal alone... oh, well. I like flying types, too... just not as much as Eevee! ^.^ *glomps Eevee plushie* But I do like types like Pidgeot and Fearow, and they're normal/flying types. Eevee, Persian, Linoone; if you're up against an enemy that you just don't have an "it's super effective!" match for, you can always just headbutt the darn thing. Just don't try that on ghost or steel. -_-; (But if you're trying to catch a Skarmory and you don't want to kill the thing, tackle it until it's got one pixel of health left... mweeheehee... :laugh: I caught mine with my Linoone's tackle and just ONE pokball. XP Go me!)

But seriously, unless you're up against ghost or steel, there's really nothing that you can't use a normal type for. Sure, they're not "super effective" against anything, but they're not "it's not very effective..." either. ^^ And my Linoone seems to love getting critical hits... (...especially against wild pokmon that I want to catch... -__-)

Sorry for putting the types togheter but as I said I can only have the maximum of 10 choices. Either combine them or put "other" and I'm sure that would be worse than combining them.

I have a question, Why is dark with steel, grass with bug and posion and flying with normal? Dark and steel came out at the same time but have no similar traits and there are too many normal pokemon are not flying and there are definiately much more grass pokemon that are not bug. Just wondering, maybe you have a good reason I can figure out or don't know, and at least the other 2 grouped together at least have similar traits. Anyway, I voted for water.

I'm guessing that they're roughly listed according to the TCG colours. (Bar Dark/Steel)

Pokedragonfire
April 14th, 2004, 12:07 PM
I put grass and bug and poison toghter because bugs can learn many grass moves (ex Giga Drain for a um Nincada) and bugs live in grass (try diging, you'll find, guess what! Slimey things and crawling things!) Poison seemed to be a common type to be paired with grass (ex Oddish) Dark and steel were the oddballs, the kinda didn't fit and there wasn't enough room for them both to have their own category. Besides in the TCG they were both special energies. Normal and Flying because flying is pared with many types and normals are only pared with flying and nothing else, unlike the rest so I put them toghether. Some people are mad because I did that. HEY ITS NOT MY FAULT I COULDN'T HAVE MORE THAN 10 CHOICES. Yeah dragons are in first with dark steel! I'm not the only one obsessed with dragons!

Didn't you read post number 32 about me proving it...oh well, It is hard to prove. I'm gonna send my dragons to get you and eat you to prove it, wah ha ha ha! (Just kidding, I'm not that mean) Hey, you changed your mind, if you really liked them you would have liked them in the first place.

I'm a trainer of Water types, since I've had a strange affinity towards water for some time now. *starts playing slides of The Early Days, when little James Hawking plays with water and pulls out high-pressure water pistols and shoots stuff with them*
Dragons are good too, because they're, well, elegant in their on regal sort of way.

Water/Ice no contest... water types only suffer from special related attacks, which amnesia can fix up. Many water types also have the ability to learn many other elemented attacks, ranging from psychic, electric and ice to even grass and fire. With such a wide range of attacks learn by water types, water type is one of the strongest in the game.

Ice type itself is very powerful except for some of the cripple-stated ice types out there like Sneasil... It's almost gurantee that there is an ice attack out there somewhere as ice attacks has such a big advantage over many other types. Freeze is THE worst status you can ever get as a frozen Pokemon is as good as dead (you have to either switch and use heal bell/aromatherapy or attack with the new Pokemon but this will result in the opponents getting a free turn, or your oppoennt can sit there to buff up against your non-moving frozen Pokemon.)

Water/Ice = the best imho

(plus they got some of the cutest Pokemon out there, like Articuno, Quagsire and so on ^^)

Same as Frostweaver - Water/Ice. Ice Beam (which nearly all Water Pokemon can learn) can take down Grass, and some Water Pokemon are completely resistant to Electric. Even if they aren't, many of them can learn Earthquake. Water Pokemon are also the most versatile - there's a dual type for nearly every other type... and with their trademark brilliant movepool... that just seals the deal.

Ice too is underrated, but Ice Beam is probably one of the best moves any Pokemon can learn. Even if Pure Ice themselves have a lot of weaknesses and only one resistance (other Ice Pokemon), their attacks are always mind-blowing and being Frozen is definitely the worst.

I love Psychic types, so I'd have to say that they're my favorite type.
