No kidding, haha.  Sableye works for that as well.

True. Well, those 2 are the only ones with almost no disadvantage, but there's a way to make an attack to super-effective to them, you now how ;D?

I might wake up early and go running. I also might wake up and win the lottery. The odds are about the same.

LOL, well, I found it by typing my previous post :P
I figured that a fighting pokemon, like Machamp, could use Foresight, making normal and fighting type attacks effective against ghost types. without the ghost type advantage, a fighting type attack would be super-effective to dark-type, and x1 to ghost, instead of zero.

Makes sense to me.  Then the only real issue is speed, and fighting-types aren't too low on that...

Fighting types generally have a standard number of speed, like 200-250. Breloom and Heracross are the fighting type pokemon that overpass that speed. I can't think of another one...

Infernape?  He's easily the best fighting Pokemon in the game.

I'm not a fan of fighting types, but I do have a sentimental attachment to Machamp. Largely, though, my party is a fire type, a flying, a water, an electric, a rock/ground and a psychic.

Machamp always seemed weak to me, but his Attack stat is VERY HIGH.
Hitmonlee always have the same attacks: Double Kick,Rolling Kick,Triple Kick,Jump Kick,Hi Jump Kick,Mega Kick ;D

My party? since I'm not taking ti to seriously, it just lame, but I got Fire, Water-Poison and Psychic.

I just got SoulSilver and I'm trying to work out my team. When I used to play Crystal I'd get a poliwag because you could get one early, but I want something different...other than totodile, does anyone have suggestions for a good water type?

I love staryu to death, but it doesn't learn too many good moves, and element stones are hard to get.

well, i couldn't find any good water types either, i'm using suicune as my water/ice type, but since you just got the game, that won't be an option for you until you beat the elite four, i'd recommend staryu, teach it recover, surf, psychic, and thunderbolt (and elemental stones are easy as hell to get)

I caught a Tentacool trying out the Old Rod. I was so surprised I didn't get a Magikarp that I caught it right away ;D but I don't recommend it. You can always catch Red Gyarados ::)

Lapras is a good water/ice type.  You can get it in the Safari Zone once you get the customization unlocked.  Rocky beach is the area.  Hard to catch, but completely worth it.
