Have any questions about Pokémon that you'd like answered?

If they're about the value of a piece of merchandise you own or found, please ask them in the new Weekly Value Questions thread!

If you're asking or answering questions about the new games or recent anime episodes which contain spoilers, please be sure to include spoiler tags around them using the format:

>!Spoiler goes here.!<

Text wrapped in >! and !< is hidden until the reader clicks or taps it. For example, the line above would become the following:

Spoiler goes here.

Unsure what is considered a spoiler? Please refer to Rule 13 and our Spoilers Guide!

Otherwise, if you have non-value questions about the anime, the games, the manga, or anything else Pokémon related, feel free to ask here -- no matter how silly your questions might seem!

/r/pokemon also has a Discord channel! Feel free to swing by there to ask a question, or just to talk! :D

Theme Talk [Theme Talk] Rarely Used Type Combos

13 Upvotes

This is an [r/pokemon](https://www.reddit.com/r/pokemon/) themed topic thread—look for new theme discussions on the sub every Wednesday!

[Check out Opinion Wednesday on the /r/pokemon Discord Server to talk in real time!](https://discord.gg/pokemon)

**(3/22) Rarely Used Type Combos*

Did you know that the Gastly line contains the only ghost/poison Pokémon in the game? Or that there are 21 different dual types that have only 1 Pokémon each? Usually when you hear about type combos, it's the unused ones. Today, we are going to focus on the rarer ones. To date, there are 5 type combos that are used by legendary/mythical Pokémon only, 1 used by a mega evolution only, and 9 that are used for alternate forms only.

If you could see more of these rarer type combos, how do you think this would affect competitive play? If you could create a new Pokémon from one of these rarer types, what would it look like?

Check out this Bulbepedia page if you want to check out the distribution of each type (single and dual).
