    Poison was the first thing that came to my mind.

    I think Dark needs some really good attacks. For example, I love Umbreon but it's move pool is terrible when it comes to Dark attacks and most of what it knows are Ghost or Psychic moves. Ghost could do with an almighty kickass move too, though. Oh and as a lot of other people have said, Poison would be good. The only reason I didn't say it myself was because I think the move Toxic, though not a straight out attack move, is pretty awesome when compared to the lack of Ghost and Dark moves. Although... Shadow Ball is decent.

    Poison I feel like its just really undermined as a type. Ghost would be my second spot, followed by Ice for third.

    Ice, for sure. Ice needs something that Water can't snatch away from it. Plus, as one stated earlier, the Freezing status is so rare, you feel like jumping for joy when it actually happens. Ice should, at least, either resit Water or do super-effective to it. It's lousy defensively, with only two Ice-types total (Froslass and Frost Rotom) having more resistances and immunities than weaknesses. Plus Stealth Rock shatters Ice's already frailness, and only resisting itself bites. Only Normal resists less, having no resistances (but an immunity) If they could make certain moves or certain combos of types with Ice that Water can't "borrow" for themselves, that would be wonderful. So many good Ice types have potential, but get crushed by commonplace strategies (Glaceon, Glalie, Vanilluxe, Froslass, to name a few). Plus it's kinda rare, so a little more distribution of the type and tactics to counter common strategies would be a welcoming change.

    While Dragon I would like to vouch for, due to my love of dragons, they're designed to be mythical, so I'm fairly content with them. But a few more Dragon families would be nice as well.

    Ghost is another type that could use some attention, but even with its lack of numbers, they tend to be pretty good overall, so they're fine (at least for now).

    Bug has improved thanks to Gens IV and V, though we did have some earlier contenders, such as Scizor and Heracross. Leavanny, Escavalier and Genesect have been big improvements to the Bug type, but it still somewhat of a supportive role. Still, there has been some improvement there, so that's better than nothing.

    Grass and Poison tend to get the short end of the stick a lot. Grass having lackluster move pools and Poison with lack of real offensive options aside from Poisoning. While Grass has been addressed slightly over the years (Torterra, Leavanny, Tangrowth, Sceptile, to name a few), it still suffers from high weaknesses and little offensive punch, as most of its high-powered moves have negative drawbacks or other such problems (I'm lookin' at you, Leaf Storm and Frenzy Plant). Poison is treated the same way, only good for being defensive, stalling, or inducing the Poison status. While Toxic is commonplace, it's not foolproof, so it's not a home-run. Like with Ice, it needs more moves that only it can learn, as Toxic, Gunk Shot, and Sludge Bomb are fairly commonplace with non-Poison Pokemon. Both need help, big time, so they are runner-ups to me.

    So, in short, I vote Ice type, but Grass and Poison are second place to me.

    I'm not a Poison fan, but clearly it needs more love. And a Legendary, for heaven's sake.


    And while I don't think GF will change weakness/resistances anymore, I think Poison should be SE against Water. I've said this before, and it would make a lot of sense, since IRL poison can ruin water forever. Besides, Water was already slightly broken; only two weaknesses, Electric -checked with rather popular Water/Ground Pokémon-, and Grass -checked with Ice moves that are usable for most Water Pokémon-. And Drizzle Politoed just made things worse. So Poison being SE against water would be a good fix, I think.

    Ghost, easily.

    There are only 27 Ghost types in comparison to 107 Water types.

    I would love to see a larger variety of Fighting types. There are plenty plain Fighting lines, but the type lacks a lot of variety.

    Yeah I really think that overall, Poison types have gotton the short end of the stick.

    I really think it should be super effective against Water (Water pollution anyone?). I'm sure that would give them more reasons to be used since Water is the most common type too. It would also be very satifying and fun for me to see a Toxicroak demolish a Swift Swim Ludicolo in competivive battles too.

    Yep, I am slighty sadistic...
    I have claimed the Spell Tag and Kasib Berry, along with Adaptability and Shadow Ball. I have also claimed Gastly.

    If you think Nintendo need to sue PETA up the ass for making Pokemon Black and Blue, copy and paste this into your sig.

    Ice. There are surprisingly few Pokemon with this type, even fewer of the moves are much good, (Ice Beam, Blizzard and Ice Shard are the only regular ones that come to mind, and maybe Icy Wind in doubles/triples) not to mention that it's probably the worst type defensively. As it is, I see very few benefits for being an ice type. A resistance to Water, Grass and perhaps, maybe, Electric (though that might be too much) would be nice.

    Who is this git?

    Definitely Poison. It doesn't have a legendary, and I can't even name many Poison-types off the top off my head. Actually, you somewhat forget that the type even exists, the way it's seemingly being ignored. Nobody uses them either, because they're so weak.

    Ice also has the same problems to some extent, but it gets its mention mainly because I think it has a lot of design potential, but that potential was wasted by the lack of attention. Ice golems. Giant white wolves.

    Electric definitely does. With it being one of the borderline major types, it doesn't have many attacks or Pokemon with dual types for that matter (excluding Rotom who's only ONE Pokemon).

    Poison, it's a very underused type.

    It definitely needs some more type advantages first, though.
