how is rock worse than Ice? Rock has a relevant Fire and Flying resist and does not have the debilitating weaknesses that Ice has, particularly the rock weakness (say hello SR). Additionally rock gets and automatic 50% boost in sandstrorm, an advantage no other type can boast. It is the reason why ttar can wall the likes of Lati's, Heatran, and Tornadus even when they have a super effective move against you and why Psyshock is reccomended to kill Terrakion on Choice scarf latios.
