The Best Pokémon With Unique Type Combinations

List RulesPokémon with unique type combinations only.

One of the most important aspects of a good Pokémon battle is the right type of matchup, and knowing which types are strong or weak against others. That’s why it helps to have the best dual-type Pokémon on your side. A Pokémon's type is the category that their moves are based on and can include common elements such as fire or water, or more whimsical themes like fairy or ghost. Certain type advantages are pretty easy to figure out, like bug against grass for example, but the more obscure types can be a bit of a mystery.

Because of this, dual-type and unique type Pokémon can be incredibly powerful, especially when you don't know your opponent's weaknesses. Having two types represented in a single Pokémon means your party is more prepared for unexpected encounters and can be the difference between victory and defeat.

In this list, we break down the best unique type Pokémon to rely on in a pinch. Make sure to vote up your favorites and vote down the Pokémon that aren't quite up to snuff. And if your favorite Pokémon with unique combinations are missing, feel free to add them to the list below. Happy voting!
