Were the developers this poorly educated in science?

you neutralize electricity by grounding the current.

Both Dark and Steel were used to calm down the psychic types running amok in Gen 1.

Then they realize Dark and Ghost resistances were silly and reversed that, but the cornerstone of Steel was to keep Psychics at bay.

Where the fuck did you get bonfire from?

>>24617822
I'm saying that you can't necessarily apply that line of reasoning to evaluate match ups. If you were to look at Fire vs Fighting, it's a neutral match up, but by using the line of reasoning of ">Average Joe vs Trained Martial Artist.", it should not be a neutral match up. This is known as an analogy.
>>
>>24617836
>Fire vs Fighting

there is no inherent advantage of heat against a being trained in martial arts, because that being can be composed of anything. It could be a water elemental who does karate or a gunpowder-filled kickboxing scarecrow; either way it's going to be applying its techniques it has trained to use and an untrained fighting style (Normal) will be at an intrinsic disadvantage in trying to react to/block these attacks.

Dude, the earth is so conductive that literaly disperse all the current.
Read more wikipedia, like >>24617704

>>24617756
A type with no weaknesses would be overpowered. Imagine how much harder it would be to break things like Porygon2 and Chansey.

Of all the types it could be weak to, Fighting makes a lot of sense.

>>24617670
Ground usually is composed of a really good conductive material. And it's so big you cannot isolate charges on earth, so any electrical charges you attach to earth through a wire will tend to be drained to ground.

>>24618043
When clouds store lots of electrical charge, the voltage between clouds and ground become so big that the air is ionized and becomes a conductive material, producing an "arc". This arc makes the flowing current to dissipate power in the ionized material, thus generating light and heat.

>>24617757
Steel stopped to resist Dark and Ghost because then Aegislash would be hard to defeat, not because more sense.

>Inb4 source
It was not stated officially, but that would make sense seeing that is bulky from both sides in its Shield Forme.

>>24618301
I think the answer is pretty obvious.

Why is bug weak to fire? Bugs don't seem weaker than anything else to fire considering.

Also rock. Sure you can crush a bug with a rock but that applies to a lot of things including your own foot.

This is why Pokemon has such a shitty fanbase and /vp/ is so fucking shit, you fucktards complain about every irrelevantly minuscule thing.
>>
>>24619280
Dark is more shady and underhanded than evil.
They really need to concentrate on their sly tactics and a bunch of bugs crawling all over them freak them out and lose control.

What a bunch of pussies, you don't see Fairy types getting fucked by bugs.

>>
>>24619431
insects see in the dark so there you go
>>
>>24619440
That would be fine if dark was not effective to bug, but how does that justify a beetle harming the darkness? I'm going to need something better that that.
>>
>>24619443
Also they needed to give but more of an offensive presence so it wouldn't be as shit as poison or normal. They gave it bug because the only other types bug was SE against was grass but half of the grass mons in Gen ll were part poison and grass is already weak to everything to what's the point, and sidekick but that was overshadowed (no pun intended) by the stronger dark and ghost types
>>
>>24619010
Ghost types can phase through armour/steel plates like how they can go through walls, doors, etc. As for Steel losing its resistance to Dark. I guess Dark-types are good at finding weaknesses in the Armour. Attacking its underbelly
>>

>Poison move that's super effective against steel types
When?
>>
>>24619610
Never. GF hates poison
>>
>>24619280
you can't trick a bug
>>
>>24619769
but poison was inadvertently buffed with fairy typing?

I'm not arguing too hard though. what would gamefreak need to do to get more poison types viable guys?
>>
>>24619150
>poison and acid are the same thing

Ok
>>
>>24619824
It helped a little bit, but fairies are extremely rare. Also the 2 part steel and part rock fairies nullify it. If poison was SE against water, that would make it relevant and make sense to.
Ya, I hate the way most Fully evolved poison mons very from shit to good but can't really hold their own in competitive. Even OU poison mons like Gengar, Scolipede or M-Venusaur aren't really used for their poison typing.
>>24619844
What types are acid and acid armour again? I think they're ice moves
>>
>>24619280

Bugs are heros in japanese culture
>>
>>24619824
If anything, poison should be super effective against normal types and steel should just be a resistance rather than immunity, they can keep the status immunity, but still, it's not like every steel pokemon has metal blood
>>
>>24619280
Bugs thrive in darkness and are drawn to light only so they can find the shadows behind it
Metaphorically speaking, they eat darkness for a living

>>24617980
>Put I can't take a lightning bolt either.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roy_Sullivan

I swear to god, each generations is more pussy than the previous one.

Fun fact, in theory, it is also possible to "dodge" lightning, as just before you're struck the electrical charge will make your hairs stand and you'll perceive a sulfur-like scent.
You have a chance to react in time, and who knows, maybe lie down so you stop being the "tallest being" in the strike zone.

I too depend on pokemon for my real life science facts, just like OP.
