Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

Most effective type?

1 vote

What type is super effective to the most Pokemon? Include abilities and typing ex: Eelectross can't be put under "ground" because of levitate, and Sableye and spiritomb can't be pit under anything. So out of the current 649 Pokemon which type is super effective to the most? Also if you can put in order from most to least effective. Ex: ground 123, fighting 119, and so on...

So Ice hits the most Pokemon super effectively though Rock is only 5 Pokemon behind yet hits 100 more Pokemon for neutral damage so I would say rock is better in this scenario.

Sorry this isn't in order I just answered the main part because I was in a rush and it was hard/time consuming
