    Default How is (insert Pokémon type) weak to (insert Pokémon type)?

    The most confusing part in type matchups, how is psychic weak to bug? How come Ghost is weak to Dark? Shouldn't Ice be weak to Water?
    Well... I'm just asking. But can anyone explain?

    Why would Ice be weak to water? I actually think water should be weak to ice, 'cause Ice freezes water..

    Go get an ice cube and pour water over it. Even if it's cool water, it'll still start to melt.

    This.
    Although, Ice can freeze water. I would have expected it to be a two-way Super Effective.

    Perhaps the Bug-Psychic thing has to do with bugs generally having very simple brains? Kind of like putting a rock in a blender, y'know? Maybe something about them disrupts Psychic types.

    It's possible, I guess. It's either that or the idea that putting a tarantula on somebody's face is going to disrupt their concentration.
    Clear the way for kids to play, for theirs is but another day. Come what might and come what may, nothing ever stops to stay.

    This the old man did once say to folks who oft forgot their way.

    Bugs are hive minded. The swarm acts as one being. Controlling the mind of one is going to do much to the actual swarm.

    Okay, I guess the water and ice was a dumb question... What about the fact that Dragon is weak to Ice and Dragon itself?

    because two tangling enraged dragons that cause major damage to each other would be a very epic scene.
    they probably made them weak to ice coz most of them are flying. heck, i dont really know.

    Maybe my understanding of physics is a bit too crude, but I never understood why flying is weak to electric, when a bird can't become electrocuted unless it is in contact with the ground? On that note, why is ground immune to electric...?

    Some of them were clearly paired up for convenience's sake, really. You can't exactly debate about psychic/dark/ghost/dragon because their typing isn't strictly related to any 'real' scientific element. Dragon is weak to ice because they needed to be weak to something back in generation 1 besides dragon (where there was only 1 dragon move).

    i would've thought water was good to electric, seeing as water damages all electrical appliances

    Lol, but water conducts electricity, therefore this type advantage makes perfect sense (water types are becoming electrocuted through and through)

    What about Steel? They conduct electricty but ends up resisting it.
