It does not help that the damage modifier table is completely disorganized, though only having to add attack data for Dark and defense data for Steel is a plus... wait, how many modifiers does Steel have on defense?
Oracle of Wuffing wrote:Still don't think bite's enough, but... Okay, Steel resists 11 types, but one of those is Dragon and the only dragon move is Dragon Rage, so you can drop that, and then it also resists Dark and Steel, so you could conceivably get that down to 8. Then it's weak to 3 types and immune to Poison.

Basically, the only reason I didn't just go in and rewire the Damage Modifier Table completely in my roms is because I don't want to mess with repointing just yet.
Since I never actually responded to the "Other Typefixes" point
