This little thing came to my mind while dealing those !#%¤ing newspapers. You all know that it's a good thing to change your poké into a move that's "not very effective" against it. However, it would be, of course, better to change to a type that is completely immune to the attack.
For our convinience, let's list all of these type combinations.
Ground vs. Flying
Normal vs. Ghost
Fighting vs. Ghost
Ghost vs. Normal
Psychic vs. Dark
Electric vs. Ground
w0wz0rz. 5 types. Now, if all of these types are in a team, you have better chances to have a type that's completely immune to the incoming attack.
I made up a little team using this strategy.
Jumpluff, the Flyer.
Basically, the Starter. Tries to fux0r the other d00d's starter up with Encore and Stun Spore, and of course Leech Seed 0wnz (One of my favourite moves ).
Now, if the other d00d starts with Jolteon, there are two options. If it's male, it's an Ice Power one. If it's female, it's a ParAttracting one.
If it is the Ice Power one, I'll change to Rhydon to block the Thunderbolt / Wave and Earthquake it's sorry ass.
If it is the ParAttracting one, well, I'll make sure that Missy is female Or then I could change Girafarig to Porygon2... Who knows.
Misdreavus, the Ghost.
I THINK that you all know how this goes.
Rhydon, the Ground.
Basically, it just makes as much damage as it can.
Girafarig, the Normal.
Shadow Ball because of all the Misdreavuses. However, this has a little problem... Girafarig has to score two hits with almost the maximum power to achieve the 2HKO. Maybe I should change this to a Snorlax?
Tyranitar, the Dark.
This thing tries to get a boost, then wh00ps the other player badly.
Miltank, the Bitch.
Celebi, the 0wn3r.
I'm tempted to put something genderless in the last position, but that would leave me without a Heal Beller, which is bad considering that this team doesn't have too much of Safeguarders...

Me: "...I've also spoken with Ian Garvey via IRC..."
Tyranitar: "Wow! You mean you have spoken with The Master?"
