If someone is using the type coverage checker to check the old type chart, he/she/it is most likely playing an old game with no Generation 6 or Generation 7 Pokemon. For example, in Generations 2-5, the fighting dragon combination got neutral coverage on everything. However, if a person checked that combination using the old type chart, he/she/it would see that it's not very effective against four Pokemon, because some Generation 6 Pokemon resist those attacks. This gives the false idea that the fighting dragon combination wasn't good even in Generations 2-5.

This needs more appreciation! Another issue is that pokemon such as clefable still count as fairy type even in this mode. Thus, they are listed as being resistant to fighting even though they should be weak to it in old gens. Edit: Sometimes they are listed as being normally affected by fighting. Nonetheless, it is wrong.
