If it weren't for Flying, Ground would be the ultimate attack type - super-effective on 5 elements, resisted by only two (which are conveniently dealt with via Fire or Flying).
I just don't like RSEFRLG's soundfont.
Okay, I'll give you that. Given that they were all chiptunes through the first two gens, I guess you can tell this was Game Freak's first real chance with instrument selection. But 3rd Gen isn't exactly the Comic Sans of instrumentation....
As for me, I need to go level grinding before I challenge the Elite Four again. If I can nail the Ice guy then I can probably sweep them (I hear the last two are Dragon and Water, so m Dragon Claw Sceptile should rock). Gotta get Manectric up to level though ... a Lv.39 Spark doesn't do me any good in the E4, I need at least a Lv.45 Thunderbolt. Or I could always swap in Lanturn (Water+Electric is one of the epic type combos) to take down those Seleo and Walrein, but I'd like to beat the regional League with mostly Mons from the same region. Speaking of which, I can probably get some mileage out of Shedinja against the E4, too.
