They want you to start out with simple types in the beginning of the game, because you're still learning how to play. Also, they don't want you to get overly powerful pokemon, taking the challenge out of the game, which is why they make more powerful pokemon available later in the game.

-FTR, Dark types didn't exist in generation I.
