    I do not understand why Bug-Types are effective against Dark-Types..
    Though, I have heard of the saying "Bugs ain't afraid of the dark"

    Me neither.
    If anything, the Dark Type should be ineffective against Bug, since they can't trick the minds of Bug-Type Pokémon.

    But I am not complaining, the more advantages for my bugs, the merrier.

    You can't think of birds when considering the Flying type. Because its not about birds like Bug is about insects. Its mostly a skill/strategy, like Fighting, Poison.. with wind for the minor elemental part.

    I'd imagine most people think of birds because flying's most well-known offensive type advantage is against bug, which is derived from birds eating insects. Likely people think of that, then think of the rest of them as referring to how a bird would fare against other things. Though I'd agree that that doesn't necessarily have to be the main basis.

    That and the flying type was pretty much every bird pokémon in gen 1 except the iffy psyduck line.

    More like you can't think of JUST birds. Yes there are other things to consider but birds (or anything that can take flight) are included.

    Why is Flying super effective against Grass?

    This is probably the reason although only some birds are herbivorous, while others are carnivores and omnivores, which is why flying is also super-effective against bug.

    Has anyone stated an explanation for psychic>poison?

    Well... There are reports of people healing themselves with the "willpower/power of the mind".
    Not sure about the veracity of these said reports, but it is a theory.

    Yeah, but normal animals (Normal types) eat flowers and grass, too.

    Hmm I've hear that before but don't really buy it. I mean the power of the mind alone can't help one overcome an injection of venom...

    You can also think of it as a similar relation to ground; grass is limited to and rooted in the ground therefore giving something in the air an advantage.

    I guess that'd make sense for Flying being super effective against Grass.

    My problem is how steel good against ice? I mean ice can become pretty hard, plus shouldn't steel also be weak against water since steel is basically metal and metal can rust from water.

    A metal blade or chisel versus a simple block of ice?

    Maybe, but lets leave it as the way it is now. Water is overpowered enough.

    Not all metals rust from water. Water is too OPed already.

    Now I got some questions, how are Poison, and Steel not SE against Water?

    How is Water SE against Fire? (in some cases, Water causes the Fire to become larger and worrse)

    Poison I might understand, but how is Steel SE against water?

    Water putting out fire is supposed to be a "universal" thing.

    Dragon should be nerfed if you think water is op. And after your "changes", water becomes weak to three types, and only super effective to 2 types.

    Also, ice melts in water if you may, so is ice weak to water now?

    Why would Steel be super-effective against Water? And in most cases, water generally puts out fire.

    Some minerals absorb water I've heard.

    And in most cases of Fire, Water makes it worse, and wind (flying) puts it out.

    So you're saying that if you slam your wing into a fire or peck a fire, it'll put it out? Flying is more of a physical attack rather than tossing wind. The two attacks I can think of immediately is Gust and Hurricane, maybe Razor Wind (who isn't even flying type) or Tailwind (which doesn't even attack).

    I'm pretty sure water douse fire, if not, why would they do that in a fire situation then?

    This is exactly why I say they should make a wind sub type (like Sound being a "sub type")

    Because, water does not universally douse fire. Oil fire and Electric fire being examples.

    Wind sub type? The typing chart is good enough, so let it stay this way.

    And because I can't read the second line of the second part, I'm not gonna give a good retaliation :3

    It wouldn't mess with the type chart, just like Sound isn't SE or weak against anything, because it's not a type.

    EDIT: It hink I ranked up. I'm a legend?

    I've never been able to figure out why Dragons are almost universally weak to Ice. Perhaps it's because of their cold blood?

    Either way, Pokemon's types make more sense than virtually any of the type match-ups in Final Fantasy. Some examples include Fire being weak to Ice.

    Creating sentience is simple. Accepting it, however, is harder than it looks.
