The above doesn't work — it's Ground on Electric rather than Rock on Electric. Now Rock > Flying > Ice would work (notwithstanding that Ice attacks will do normal damage to a Rock Pokémon).

Let's see....Dark > Psychic > Fighting.

Here are the interesting triangles:

Bug > Grass > Rock
Dark > Psychic > Fighting
Electric > Water > Ground
Fire > Grass > Ground
Fire > Grass > Water
Fire > Ice > Ground
Fighting > Rock > Flying
Fighting > Ice > Flying
Flying > Grass > Rock
Grass > Ground > Poison
Grass > Rock > Ice
Ground > Rock > Ice
Ground > Steel > Ice

Some of these would make excellent starter Poke suggestions for the upcoming DP version. We will probably be subjected to yet another round of the lame/overplayed Water/Grass/Fire, but just think of the possibilities these triangles could create.

BTW - There are also a couple circles:

Dragon > Dragon
Ghost > Ghost

Fighting > Rock > Flying is the best one because they all have resistances and weaknesses to each other, have no immunities, and are all physical types (just like Fire > Grass > Water have are all special types).

Since when have Bug types been weak against Poison?
