>electric has no effect against ground
Were the developers this poorly educated in science?
Both Dark and Steel were used to calm down the psychic types running amok in Gen 1.
Then they realize Dark and Ghost resistances were silly and reversed that, but the cornerstone of Steel was to keep Psychics at bay.
I'm saying that you can't necessarily apply that line of reasoning to evaluate match ups. If you were to look at Fire vs Fighting, it's a neutral match up, but by using the line of reasoning of ">Average Joe vs Trained Martial Artist.", it should not be a neutral match up. This is known as an analogy.
>Fire vs Fighting
there is no inherent advantage of heat against a being trained in martial arts, because that being can be composed of anything. It could be a water elemental who does karate or a gunpowder-filled kickboxing scarecrow; either way it's going to be applying its techniques it has trained to use and an untrained fighting style (Normal) will be at an intrinsic disadvantage in trying to react to/block these attacks.
A type with no weaknesses would be overpowered. Imagine how much harder it would be to break things like Porygon2 and Chansey.
Of all the types it could be weak to, Fighting makes a lot of sense.
Ground usually is composed of a really good conductive material. And it's so big you cannot isolate charges on earth, so any electrical charges you attach to earth through a wire will tend to be drained to ground.
When clouds store lots of electrical charge, the voltage between clouds and ground become so big that the air is ionized and becomes a conductive material, producing an "arc". This arc makes the flowing current to dissipate power in the ionized material, thus generating light and heat.
Steel stopped to resist Dark and Ghost because then Aegislash would be hard to defeat, not because more sense.
It was not stated officially, but that would make sense seeing that is bulky from both sides in its Shield Forme.
Why is bug weak to fire? Bugs don't seem weaker than anything else to fire considering.
Also rock. Sure you can crush a bug with a rock but that applies to a lot of things including your own foot.
>this is not like my american anime.
You should have been watching fox kids instead of your cheap chinese cartoons.
>Developers aren't allowed to be cheeky with their decision
This is why Pokemon has such a shitty fanbase and /vp/ is so fucking shit, you fucktards complain about every irrelevantly minuscule thing.
>They really need to concentrate on their sly tactics and a bunch of bugs crawling all over them freak them out and lose control.
What a bunch of pussies, you don't see Fairy types getting fucked by bugs.
Also they needed to give but more of an offensive presence so it wouldn't be as shit as poison or normal. They gave it bug because the only other types bug was SE against was grass but half of the grass mons in Gen ll were part poison and grass is already weak to everything to what's the point, and sidekick but that was overshadowed (no pun intended) by the stronger dark and ghost types
Ghost types can phase through armour/steel plates like how they can go through walls, doors, etc. As for Steel losing its resistance to Dark. I guess Dark-types are good at finding weaknesses in the Armour. Attacking its underbelly
It helped a little bit, but fairies are extremely rare. Also the 2 part steel and part rock fairies nullify it. If poison was SE against water, that would make it relevant and make sense to.
Ya, I hate the way most Fully evolved poison mons very from shit to good but can't really hold their own in competitive. Even OU poison mons like Gengar, Scolipede or M-Venusaur aren't really used for their poison typing.
What types are acid and acid armour again? I think they're ice moves
If anything, poison should be super effective against normal types and steel should just be a resistance rather than immunity, they can keep the status immunity, but still, it's not like every steel pokemon has metal blood
>Put I can't take a lightning bolt either.
I swear to god, each generations is more pussy than the previous one.
Fun fact, in theory, it is also possible to "dodge" lightning, as just before you're struck the electrical charge will make your hairs stand and you'll perceive a sulfur-like scent.
You have a chance to react in time, and who knows, maybe lie down so you stop being the "tallest being" in the strike zone.
Idk anon. Why don't you?
