UPNetwork.net's Official Type Chart Redesign!
Have you ever looked at Game Freak's type matchups and gotten confused?

"Why is Flying super-effective against Fighting?"

"Why does Steel resist Psychic?"

"Why is Psychic super effective against Poison?"

It's enough to keep me up at night! I just want to make it all better. Come here, my beautiful Pokemon type chart. I will fix you.

But I can't do it alone. No, I need the assistance of EVERY member of UPNetwork.net if I want to embark on this grand undertaking. Together, we can make the type chart a shining example of beauty, balance, and common sense. People will weep just to think about what we have created.

  1. Send me a PM using one of the 18 types as the subject
  2. Once 2 types have been PM'd to me, I will post them in this thread along with a randomly-generated "RESIST/SUPER-EFFECTIVE/IMMUNE" message
  3. Help further by posting justifications for why this combination is in the state it's in!

Together I know that we can create the best, most balanced, and most well-reasoned type chart this world has ever seen.

Poison is good against ghost ever since Clorox released their newest line of cleaning products, Ghost-Gone. Just a few sprays of this will clean your house of physical, and spectral grime.

Shuckle 06-21-2017 03:24 AM

This is a really common-sense matchup we've got here today, folks. Toxicity is well-known for producing massive amounts of salt, and ghosts are verifiably allergic to salt! They also cannot cross salt lines on the ground. A little bit of a mythological-historical angle we're gunning for here! Loving the ingenuity and care that our esteemed community has for the type chart endeavor.

Personally I'm a little shocked at the potential implications of this on ASB. Ghosts in ASB are immune to poisoning effects, as they are technically Starmie. I mean, inorganic. What a Freudian slip, am I right?

I'll be taking PMs on a rolling basis; please don't hesitate to offer more typing options! There are 120 options in Game Freak's (flawed) official type chart, so we've still got a lot of work ahead of us!

Kuno is right. Vacuum cleaners used to be all the rage for getting the job done. In today's world of hardwood floors and hectic schedules, everyone wants a spray-it-and-leave-it solution. Thus, the increasing popularity of Ghost-Gone. Simple and effective. Super effective, one might say.

Emi 06-21-2017 09:46 AM

As UPN's resident Ghost-type specialist, the only correct type chart involving Ghosts everything is weak to Ghosts and Ghost resists everything. Including itself.

Anything else is vile alt-right propaganda.

dirkac has submitted: BUG
Snorby has submitted: NORMAL

The Random Type-Effectiveness Generator has determined that BUG is now RESISTANT to NORMAL!!



Shuckle 06-21-2017 11:45 AM

I think this is a solid example of the kind of common-sense thinking I'm looking to encourage. Using normal attacks, like yelling and hitting and emitting bright beams of destructive energy from your mouth, are TOTALLY ineffective in real life at handling a bug problem. Those things do not care!

I'm interested in seeing the way this shakes up the competitive metagame. Normal types like Snorlax and Arceus no longer have the, er, crushing power needed to bust through sturdy Bug-type walls like Ninjask and Metapod.

Sparkbeat 06-21-2017 12:29 PM

Bugs have strong exoskeletons, so normal attacks can't break through them.

Shuckle 06-21-2017 02:38 PM

The Morg has submitted: Electric
toyo has submitted: Fairy

The Random Type-Effectiveness Generator has determined that ELECTRIC is now SUPER-EFFECTIVE to FAIRY!!



Shuckle 06-21-2017 02:41 PM


Shuckle 06-21-2017 02:42 PM

Feel free to submit as many as you like! I won't match you up with yourself, though.

Lady Kuno 06-21-2017 02:56 PM

Have you ever tried to punch a bee? Kick a tick? Even stepping on ants and dropping them from high places won't do the trick. Those little buggers (literally) are very resistant. It's super obvious that bugs would resist normal.

It's clear to anyone with a brain that electric is super effective to fairy. I have never in my entire life seen a fairy in a thunderstorm. In fact, I'm willing to wager top dollar here that none of you have ever seen a fairy in a thunderstorm either. Case closed.

deoxys 06-21-2017 03:24 PM


Electronic music > Classical music, which somehow is associated with fairies, for some reason.


Shuckle 06-21-2017 04:18 PM

Snorby has submitted: Ice
toyo has submitted: Fairy

The Random Type-Effectiveness Generator has determined that ICE is now IMMUNE to FAIRY!!



(also from here on out, I'm going to change up the formula since I just realized that I have two "is affected by" and one "affects" so it's all going to be "is affected by" - resistant to, weak to, immune to)

(also I think I have to edit the chart because I did some shit wrong)

Shuckle 06-21-2017 05:10 PM

As Chechnya proves, ice doesn't really care about how much of a fairy you are ;o

Lady Kuno 06-21-2017 06:25 PM

Fairies are immune to Ice because everyone knows Clefairy came from the moon. They wouldn't have been able to survive the absolute cold of space if they weren't immune to ice.

Ahahaha Cirno is indeed best touhou.

Kindrindra 06-23-2017 02:37 AM

Dammit Talon that legitimately made me laugh so hard I had to find my puffer. :T

Shuckle 06-25-2017 07:01 PM

Megapost time! Sort of. There's just 2.

Chart to follow soon enough. It turns out I DID fuck it up, and a few boxes need to be swapped around.

deoxys has submitted: DARK
Kindrindra has submitted: DARK

The Random Type-Effectiveness Generator has determined that DARK is now RESISTANT to DARK.

KamenAeons has submitted: GRASS
Snorby has submitted: POISON

The Random Type-Effectiveness Generator has determined that GRASS is now WEAK to POISON.


Lady Kuno 06-26-2017 08:12 AM

I can't even make a funny post about why Dark would resist Dark or why Poison would beat Grass. This is just too bizarre and nonsensical. Even for me.
