    Default Superhero types

    If you could assign Pokémon types to superheroes (or supervillains, if you want), what would their types (and abilities and moves if you want to get that creative) be? I'm going to be posting my thoughts on four heroes from Marvel and DC respectively:

    Captain America: Normal/Fighting
    Ability: Guts
    Moves: Take Down, Fling, Brick Break, Protect

    Thor: Fairy/Electric
    Ability: Sheer Force
    Moves: Thunder, Hammer Arm, Meteor Mash, Play Rough

    Hulk: Fighting
    Ability: Anger Point
    Moves: Outrage, Thrash, Rage, Superpower

    Iron Man: Steel/Normal
    Ability: Download
    Moves: Flash Cannon, Techno Blast, Hyper Beam, Discharge


    Batman: Dark/Fighting
    Ability: Justified
    Moves: Fling, Close Combat, Shadow Sneak, Last Resort

    Superman: Fighting/Flying
    Ability: Huge Power
    Moves: Superpower, Fly, Frost Breath, Incinerate

    Flash: Normal
    Ability: Technician
    Moves: Quick Attack, Bullet Punch, Mach Punch, Vacuum Wave

    Wonder Woman: Fighting
    Ability: Defiant
    Moves: Close Combat, Constrict, Detect, Sacred Sword

    P.S.
    I'm seeing a lot of people assigning the Dragon type to the characters whose main power is super-strength. I hate to break it to you, but that type assignment only really works if the character is reptilian in design. Dragon-types are NOT characterized solely by physical attacks. There are a lot of outliers in the Special Attack stat, like Palkia, Reshiram, and Hydreigon. I know it's your opinion, people, but try to keep in kind that characters like Superman and the Hulk are human in appearance (granted, the Hulk is big and green, but he's still not in any way reptilian), and as such should not really be categorized in the type that consists mainly of reptilian beasts. I'd appreciate it if you put more thought into the typing other than "this fits because it's the main trait of the character." For instance, I gave Captain America the Normal/Fighting type combination because he's a normal person who's been genetically altered to be at the peak of physical fitness.

    Batman doesn't have any powers, period.

    And if you really want to get picky about it, none of the Dark-type Pokémon are actually evil either. It's been made perfectly clear in the games that there is no such thing as an evil Pokémon, just evil people using them to do bad things. Heck, Absol frequently goes out of its way to try and warn people about natural disasters, and it's a Dark-type. I know the Dark type is known as the "Evil" type in Japan, but for the most part, the Dark type is more about using dirty tactics to fight, such as biting (Bite and Crunch) or pulling punches when the opponent isn't looking (Feint Attack and Sucker Punch), much in the way that a dishonorable person would in order to try and win against an opponent he couldn't beat in a fair fight. An argument can even be made for Dark Pulse and Night Daze, with Dark Pulse being an aura-based attack, and Night Daze attacking the opponent with "A pitch-black shock wave," which doesn't really sound that demonic.

    The Flash would absolutely be at least part Electric, that just seems obvious. As for Ability, that'd depend on what Flash we're talking about. Here's what I think:

    Jay Garrick - Guts

    Barry Allen - Technician or Friend Guard

    Wally West - Technician or Inner Focus

    Bart Allen - Own Tempo

    Lightningrod could apply to all of them as well, except maybe Jay.

    (I'll try out some other ones later )

    EDIT: Right, let's give this a whirl, shall we? I'll be focusing on DC for now.

    Batman: Dark/Fighting
    Ability: Intimidate or Keen Eye

    Hawkman: Fairy/Flying or Fighting/Flying
    Ability: Sturdy or Hustle

    Superman: Fighting/Flying
    Ability: Huge Power or Wonder Skin

    Martian Manhunter/J'onn J'onzz: Psychic
    Ability: Telepathy

    Green Lantern: Fairy
    Ability: Inner Focus or Mold Breaker

    Green Arrow: Normal
    Ability: Sniper or Scrappy

    Captain Marvel: Fairy
    Ability: Huge Power or Super Luck

    Firestorm: Fire, plus a secondary typing of Psychic or Fairy.
    Ability: Synchronize or Adaptability

    Steel: Uh, Steel
    Ability: Technician or Light Metal

    Nightwing: Normal
    Ability: Prankster or Limber
