What are all of the non-solo types in Pokemon games?



  • In the Pokemon games that I have played (R/B/Y, G/S/C, R/S/E), I recall that there are some types that never go alone

    For example, there is no pure Flying type Pokemon, there would at least be Normal associated to them

    The question is: what are all of the Pokemon types that require dual typing?



  • As of today there are none.

    • In Gen 1 (Red/Blue/Yellow) there were four: flying, rock, ice and ghost.
    • In Gen 2 (Gold/Silver) we got the first pure ghost in Misdreavus and the first pure rock in Sudowoodo. But the newly introduced steel type wasn't used alone.
    • Gen 3 (Ruby/Sapphire) introduced two pure steel types, Mawile and Registeel, as well as three pure ice types in Snorunt, Glalie and Regice.
    • Gen 5 (Black/White) had the legendary Tornadus, which is pure flying.
    • Then in Gen 8 (Sword/Shield) the first nonlegendary pure flying type got intoduced (Rookidee and its evolution Corvisquire).

    Gen 4 has the promo legendary Arceus and Gen 7 the legendary Silvally both of which can be every single type depending on the carried item. Both are normal type when not carrying an item.

    The dark and fairy types had pure specimens from their inception.
