With the introduction of Fairy type, the total Types has increased to 18. This has increased number of possibly types (unique, i.e. Primary/Secondary is same as Secondary/Primary) to 171.

How many of such combinations have been used and which combinations are still left to be used i.e. No pokemon exist for such type?

Examples off the top of my head? Bug/Dragon, Electric/Poison etc. Unique Type used in Gen 6 - Water/Fire - Volcanion

Edit: Gen 7 Introduced. Thanks @Kenny980 for updating!

    Shouldn't you be asking this on Arqade?

    Possible. Types relate to both anime and games though. I'd leave it upto the mdos I guess?

    I'm just saying there's much more activity and pokemon fans which might be more knowledgeable about these things than here. You could cross-post without deleting this question for better coverage.

    The question is fine here, but I think it makes a lot more sense on Arqade, since this is a pretty game-mechanic-y question. I can migrate it if you'd like.

    @Hakase Says about every single other comment I have seen so far about cross-posting on SE sites.

    No Electric Fighting... Electiwire was a great candidate. Cross Chop/Brick Break with STAB!
