    While we do have Rotom-Mow, it is not OU, so a good Electric/Grass would be interesting.
    I don't like the Electric/Dark weakness to fighting, but it's still pretty good with only three weaknesses and a bunch of resists and an immunity.
    Grass/Dark has never been done in a way that made the Pokémon good; points in case, Shiftry and Cacturne.

    I'm just worried that an electric-type will cause rain abuse.

    I chose the first two because I think they are both equally capable of doing what we want from this CAP, but I find the idea of a dark/electric type more appealing somehow. Dragon/Grass is because dragon is my favorite type, but also because I feel sun teams do need a strong answer to dragons, and that it can fill many holes on a sun-team without being overly reliant on sun.

    Stop!

    Hammertime! I'll go get the results.

    Code:
    Array
    (
        [grassfighting] => 12
        [grassdragon] => 15
        [electricgrass] => 50
        [electricdark] => 59
        [grassdark] => 60
    )
    
    Array
    (
        [grassdragon] => 15
        [electricgrass] => 50
        [electricdark] => 63
        [grassdark] => 68
    )
    
    Array
    (
        [electricgrass] => 57
        [electricdark] => 66
        [grassdark] => 71
    )

    It's pretty darn close. The top three typings will move on to Typing Poll 2.
