I've found that I'm pretty good with Pokemon that have Psychic-type moves, even if the Pokemon isn't even a Psychic-type themselves. I also seem to do good with Fire and Dark types, as well.

This is the exact same for me. I just know them inside and out so it makes it easier.
I'm a silhouette, asking every now and then
Is it over yet? Will I ever feel again?
I'm a silhouette, chasing rainbows on my own
But the more I try to move on, the more I feel alone
So I watch the summer stars to lead me home.

I'm best at using Dragon types, because it's my favourite type, and they do tend to have a big movepool.

I'm good with Electric type too, because it's my second favourite, and Thunderbolt is one of my favourite moves.

Hmm, mine would have to be Fire, Psychic and Dragon. Bug, however, is no-where near the top because I literally cannot use Bug-Types.

Probably Water. I'm a Vaporeon hoar and it's the most versatile type by far, except maybe Normal.

Strangely enough, I have no preference to any types. My teams usually make up multiple types of pokemon and moves.I can use this to have an advantage over as many pokemon as possible.
My normal teams would have.
1 fire pokemon--will usually have a bite/crunch
1 water pokemon--will usually have a Ice beam/blizzard
1 flying pokemon
1 psychic pokemon--will usually have focus blast
1 electric pokemon--will usually have dig
1 random pokemon--this one can be any type.
Though I don't prefer any type the easiest for me to level up is fire type

Psychic types. They all have good special attack and most psychic type moves are strong.

Although Dark is my favorite type, I'm best at using Electric. Alot of my teams have at one Electric type and only have one weakness(and with Eelektross' line having none) and a good amount of resistances.

Psychic, by far. I'm great with Psychic types. I think that's because it was my favorite type from Generation I onward, so I would always make it a priority over the other types.

I went with Fire-types, I don't know why, they just always work on my team. I've never really managed to make a Psychic- or Ghost-type work in my team, though. Or Bug, come to think of it. And Poison... I probably should work on those tbh, 'cause some of those types can be ridiculously useful.
Still young but no longer impressionable.

I've always been better at using water types than any other- most of the time my teams end up having 3 or 4 water types in them. They just seem much more balanced than most types.

Come to think of it, that's probably why I didn't do as well in B/W. Not enough lovely water types for me to work with.

For me it's mostly fighting types, most if not all of the fighting types I've actively used before have been more or less wrecking balls to say the least.

I think flying types are my strength. Most of them are fast and pretty high attack, so they're great for beating trainers.

Other than that, maybe Fire and Water.
pineapples are cool.
