PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A

I've thought about this for a while and I've found these two type combos:
- Water/Steel/Bug/Dragon
- Water/Steel/Flying/Ground
Just wondering if there are any more. What can you guys think of?

Freeze dry would hit the second combo super effectively tho
4 times super effective on the  second set and 2 times on the first.
That's true :]

Running all 73340 combinations through a filter, and then applying numerical values to resistances and weaknesses, the only 4 type combos possible are those you listed.

Awesome, thanks! What filter did you use?
That's pretty interesting! It (might) also interest you to know that they ran it through a simulator - if there was a pokemon that was a combination  of all 18 types, it'd still be weak to Rock type attacks
I made my own simulator. I am still tinkering the pVp calculating aspect of things, but adding types was conveniently easy for it, and organizing type advantage/disadvantage scores was something that had already been done, so... easy peasy.
