This was the very first thing that came to my mind as well. Although, being the Normal type, I guess it does make a little sense that it's at a disadvantage.
Other than Normal, I think that the Flying type has one of the biggest disadvantages. Up until the fifth gen, not a single Pokemon was primarily Flying type (and Tornadus is still the only single-type Flying Pokemon). It also has a pretty small movepool, and weaknesses to common move types like Ice, Rock and Electric.
