    Dark is immune to Psychic, which completely makes it not a triangle. Unless you want a bias type-choice, of course.

    Ice, Ground, and Steel are also biased, as Ground hits Ice normally.

    Here's a list of all possible triangles(without the fairy)
    Rock/Flying/Fighting
    Fire/Rock/Steel
    Grass/Poison/Ground

    And by neglecting the damage by cross-typing:

    Here's a list of possible Quads:
    Fire/Bug/Grass/Water
    Fire/Grass/Ground/Rock
    Rock/Flying/Grass/Ground

    And Pentagons:
    Fire/Bug/Grass/Ground/Rock
    Bug/Grass/Ground/Rock/Flying

    this was found at:

    This is, of course, if you were looking for legitimate triangles. That means that the type resists one and is super-effective against another.

    With Psychic not being able to hit Dark, you wouldn't ever use a grass move against a fire type starter, plus you could make it interesting and have the starters as
    Natu 4x effective on Croagunk who is 4x effective on Sneasel. Sneasel isn't 4x effective on Natu, but instead has two types both 2x effective, making up for the lack of Natu not hitting Sneasel with Psychic moves.

    Another thing, thanks for the fighitng flying rock one. Did not know that.
