User:Spriteit/Unique Types

While many type combinations are actually quite common (sometimes even more so than Pokémon of single types), there are several Pokémon which have type combinations unique to either their species or their evolutionary family. These Pokémon are listed below.

Many Pokémon have two types, rather than just one. The complex nature in which types can be arranged means there are a possible 289 different type combinations (including single types). However, due to the games' advantage/disadvantage multiplication system, a Pokémon which is Dark/Ghost is treated the same as one that is Ghost/Dark. As such, there are 153 distinct type combinations.

For the purposes of this list, type combinations are considered commutative; that is to say, Spiritomb and Sableye would be treated as having the same type combination as they have the same weaknesses and resistances.

Trivia

  • There are 24 different species of Pokémon which do not have the same type combination as another.
  • Tornadus is currently the only single-typed Pokémon who does not share the same type as any other. Several other single-typed Pokémon -- Dratini, Dragonair, Misdreavus, Sudowoodo, Tangela, and Umbreon -- were unique in their single typing when introduced, but later generations introduced more Pokémon with those types.
  • Many Pokémon gain their unique type combination through evolution and, as a result, some of those featured here are not featured with their pre-evolutions. Conversely, Surskit is the only Pokémon on this list whose evolution is not also listed.
  • Generation V introduced the most Pokémon with unique type combinations, with 32.
  • All dual type Ghost-type Pokémon, apart from Sableye and Spiritomb, have unique type combinations.
