    I generally don't use an Electric type and Fire type on the same team. Too many shared weaknesses. I also don't tend to use Grass types at all which probably stems from my first gen origins where all but one Grass type was also a Poison type and that made it Psychic bait.

      Being a Yellow player, I know all too well the Grass hatred. In fact I avoid using Grass if they weren’t so damn necessary for Cut, hence I typically use Bulbasaur for just that reason(Cut, Toxic, Leech Seed and Razor Leaf). For me though, I try not to mix Grass and Bug(ironically Paras has both Types!). Both share Fire, Flying and Poison weakness(at least in Gen 1, not so in future Generations) and several Bug Pokemon also have Poison Typing(like the majority of Kanto Grass Types(making them vulnerable to Ground and Psychic at the expense of reducing Poison damage a bit)).

      I've never had a typing problem to be honest.

      I can usually come up with something to make any pair a good team.

      I often don't like sharing Bug with Grass, especially with how many weaknesses both those types share. I also don't tend to use Rock and Ground at the same time, especially since they can get access to each other's moves e.g. Rock Slide and Earthquake.

        Frail types like bug, ice and grass make my teams very vulnerable

        Not that I have anything against them, but it's very rare that I have an Electric, Poison, Rock, or Ground type Pokemon in my team. I like using moves of those types, I just usually put them on other typed Pokemon for coverage instead,\.

        I don't focus too much on types when I play Pokemon, so there aren't really any types that I wouldn't use together??

          I end up using most types as I try and make sure that the teams I make end up having type variety. I don't think I use Dragon types as much as I'd like though.

            I try to vary my teams, but I never use Bug with Grass or Rock with Ground. Both sets just share too many weaknesses. TBH, I just don’t use many Rock types to begin with.
