    Rock/Bug/Grass/Flying, obviously.

    I guess I could work out the type chart on it based on that.


    normal 0.5x
    fighting 0.5x
    flying 2x
    poison 1x
    ground 0x
    rock 4x
    bug 1x
    ghost 1x
    steel 2x
    grass 0.25x
    fire 2x
    water 1x
    electric 1x
    psychic 1x
    ice 4x
    dragon 1x
    dark 1x

    4x weak to stealth rock. Yeah, that is not going to cut it for a defensive pokemon. It will probably fall to NU regardless of how high its defensive stats are. Besides that weaknesses to flying, rock, steel, fire and ice means it's weak to scizor's bullet punch and mamoswine's ice shard, while its resistences of normal, fighting, ground and grass aren't really that good, except maybe to counter breloom.

    I conclude that Shuckpluff due to its typing doesn't even come close to being as good as ferrothorn.

    Still loses half its HP each time it switches in. Just pack two stealth rockers and something with roar and its dead weight.

    To be fair, Shuckpluff has every ability stacked on each other.

    Shuckpluff was banned from competitive play because it wouldn't ever faint.

    Actually, if you bring another Shuckpluff into battle they both faint at the same time.

    No it doesn't. At its creation it was established to be a combination of shuckle and jumpluff with higher stats. Meaning it can only have the abilities those two pokemon have.

    But what would you know, you weren't even present at the glorious day of its inception. Infidel.

    Correction, it faints if it switches into stealth rock twice.

    That's untrue though. Here is some actual info on Shuckpluff: Stats, typing, abilities, and movepool

    Yeah I knew it had an actual typing, that's why I asked. Still, not having a water resist hurts it.

    It makes up for it by not having any 4x weaknesses.

    Prankster Cotton Guard makes it ... reasonably bulky. Without a phazer or something like that, that's hard to take down (especially with seeding and the like).

    Neosquid thought it didn't need Prankster because it has base 110 speed, but I kind of like it there.
