Sorry if in wrong spot, I figured that since this was about competitive battling, it should go here.

I'm trying to make a team, but I don't know what types to cover...
I was thinking something like this:


1. Water
2. Fire
3. Grass
4. Fighting
5. Ghost/Psychic
6. Ground

But i'm not sure, what types should a good competitive team cover?
Thanks For Any Help...

don't cover types cover Pokemon imo like Heracross, Tyranitar, Suicune, Salamence, Raikou etc.

use type weaknesses and resists for that.

you need a steel, resists like everything, almost every team now days have either a Skarm, Magneton, Fortress, and Steelix

Grass is seriously unnessary do to the fact that it has so much weaknesses and the only good it will do is to Swampert

Water is good because its only weak to electric and grass moves and like the only grass moves out there are HP Grass

Fire is basically useless seeing how all of fire types suck and with all those water types around it wont survive.

Ghost good because resists Normal attacks

Normal good Hp on most, Resists ghost attacks

Dark, pretty useless seeing how psychic isnt used that much anyways

Poison, No good poisons out there except Weezing

Bug, the only bug type worth using is Heracross

Fighting, Fighting Moves are strong against like everything now, and one Focus Punch usually kills most things, with a Fighting type you can get STAB making it even deadlier

Psychic, Alakazam, Gardevoir, and Jynx are the only ones worth using

Electric, good, kills all those water types

Flying, good cause it resists all those Earthquakes which can drive you nuts

Ice, most water pokemon learns Ice Beam so dont bother with Ice Types

if theres any type i didnt mention, they arent worth using
