Top 10 Worst Pokemon Type Combinations

The combinations mentioned on this list were counted according to their number of weaknesses. And with that, Pokemon like Tyranitar, Aggron, Scizor and others do not suck, by any means. The list just points out the type combinations that aren't the best option in competitive battlefield.

The Top Ten

1 Grass/Ice

Weak and not very effective in battle

Weak to: Fire, Steel, Rock, Flying, Bug, Fighting and Poison. - TB2467

Salandit and salazzle are technically broken against this.8x strong. Fire already has a 4x against this,and poison is good against grass(2x).4x2=8.In gen 8 I bet there will be 12x weaknesses.

What a dumb combo

2 Fire/Flying

All I need to say is: rock

I think Charizard has recieved WAAAY too much hate for his 4x weakness to you-know-what.

3 Grass/Bug

Its pitiful defensively and offensively.


Weak to: Rock, Fire, Bug, Poison, Flying and Ice. - TB2467

4x to Fire and Flying

4 Fire/Rock

Not weak to Steel, Fire resists that. Other than that yeah. - PageEmperor

Weak to: Fighting, Water, Ground, Fighting and Steel. - TB2467

4x weak to surf and earthquake. Resisted by many types. Absolutely no defensive pivot, everything hits this super effectively. - SinisterHoodedFigure

5 Flying/Normal

Weak to: Electric, Ice and Rock. And also, we got enough Pokemon of this type combination. - TB2467

6 Steel/Ice
7 Rock/Ice

Sooo bad defensively. The most weaknesses of any type combo

Wow, sorry aurorus...

It’s no wonder why Aurorous became extinct with a type combo like this.

The highest cumulative type with 7 weaknesses. Two bad types combined to become the worst.

8 Bug/Ice

As of gen7 there are no mons with this type yet. - PageEmperor

I don't think Misty and Iris would approve...

9 Rock/Dark

Don't make fun of Tyranitar...

Weak to: Grass, Bug, Water, Fighting, Fairy, Ground and Steel. - TB2467

But is any pokemon rock and dark?

10 Dragon/Electric

Dargon/Electric is a horrible typing. Neither side protectse weakness, mediocre offensively as well, and is just lame overall. There is nothing good about this combination at all.

Such a bad typing. - PageEmperor


Electric cannot cover any of Dragons weakenesses and that cannot cover Ground by any means. That alone is quite bad. It was originally a flawed but still ok typing, but after gen6 it became a mediocre typing after getting an extra weakness. - PageEmperor

The Contenders

Is this bad? Sure 2 4x weaknesses but those are its only weaknesses. - PageEmperor
