    Question Q: What are the six most common Pokemon types in one's party?

    I got the idea that the six most types consist of:

    Psychic
    Dark
    Ghost
    Water
    Flying
    Dragon

    Did I get it incorrectly?
    1. I thought Gardenia is a Grass-type fangirl; in addition, I could've sworn that she had a shippy Nando-centric flashback when the latter got framed.

    2. I'm tired of seeing Brock, being the designated eunuch of the show. As a result, I would love to see this OT3 to happen:

    Lucy x Brock x Holly

    Um, I don't really see the point of this thread.

    It really depends on the team, but I would imagine that all teams have a least one water type, seeing as its the most abundant type.

    don't like something? fix it. stop complaining about it.

    Water is definately the most common type used, because they can learn a lot of useful moves and are fairly abundant. After that, I'd say Normal and Psychic tie for the same reasons.

    You really don't see as many Dragons as you would think, because Ice moves are so popular. Same reason for Flying-types. And Ghost and Dark are pretty rare, too - a lot of people simply teach Ghost and Dark-type moves to their Normals to avoid the weakness of those two types.

    No, Ice-type Pokemon themselves aren't common. Just Ice-type moves.

    I don't know about the other threem most popular types since I don't PvP that much.

    It honestly depends on the team. In competitive battling, you only think about your types when trying to cover your weaknesses.

    Salamence however, is very common.

    As far as ADV goes, the most common Pokémon used are:

    According to that list, types are used as follows:

    Flying - 6 Pokémon
    Water - 6 Pokémon

    Steel - 5 Pokémon
    Ground - 5 Pokémon
    Psychic - 5 Pokémon

    Normal - 3 Pokémon
    Grass - 3 Pokémon
    Poison - 3 Pokémon
    Electric - 3 Pokémon

    Rock - 2 Pokémon
    Dragon - 2 Pokémon
    Dark - 2 Pokémon
    Ghost - 2 Pokémon
    Fighting - 2 Pokémon

    Fire - 1 Pokémon
    Bug - 1 Pokémon
    Ice - 1 Pokémon

    So the most common types on a team are Flying, Water, Steel, Ground, Psychic, and Normal. Pokémon

    Well, I usually try and get a Grass-type, an Electric-type, a Water-type, a Fire-type, a Normal-type and a Flying-type...hence my first party in Pokémon Red consisting of Venusaur, Pikachu, Gyarados, Flareon, Snorlax and Aerodactyl.

    I'd probably say Flying-type is the most common because it becomes useful once the HM for Fly is found.

    Not the best answer, but for normal gameplay (i.e running around and taking on dungeons and stuff):

    Flying - Fly
    Electric - beat down all those water-types when you're Surfing
    Ground - Rock Smash, Cut, Strength, Rock Climb
    Water - Surf, Waterfall, Whirlpool
    Psychic - beat down all those Zubats and random Fighting-types
    Rock - I've come to realize I always have a Rock-type on me. Not for any specific purpose, it's just...there.

    For Gym Battles, Elite Four, etc:
    Fire - starter
    Rock - Golem or Tyranitar
    Water - defensive bonus and Ice-type moves
    Electric - sweeper, usually, but can also jump in to take down random pokemon
    Psychic - same as above
    Fighting - when I need brawn

    This is simply my preference, though
    Pokedex (HG): 173 Seen, 95 Captured
    Current Party: Typhlosion, Ampharos, Gyarados, Machamp, Golem, Hypno
    Badges: 7

    In a playthrough team?

    I would say:
    Water
    Flying
    Fire
    Grass/Electric
    Normal
    Other type

    For instance, my Platinum team was a Togekiss, Infernape, Golduck, Leafeon, Porygon-Z, and Weavile.
