So, I've been battling Byron in Pearl, and my Luxray has Bite, I used Bite on it, and it says that it's 'not very effective'. The Bastiodon already had a Chesto Berry, so I'm pretty curious how bit is not very effective.

That's all.

Why is this flagged

In gen 4 dark type moves were not very effective against steel types.

Same thing goes with the Ghost type.
Then it all  changed in gen 6
Steel Type Pokemon had a stupid amount of resistances before Gen 6 :P
