is the pokemon type spread sheet balance in series? I play the games, but I haven't really notice it . The only ones I know have it bad are ice and dark types but I'm not sure why.

Right now, Ice types have gotten the short end of the stick. Their moves are great, but Ice types have difficulties surviving online.

I can see Dark types as well, but they're still useful against Ghost and Psychic. Too bad they're weak against Fairy.

Poor Weavile now has six weaknesses. :(

Grass also has a lot of weaknesses (5). Bug would have been more useful if Fairy didn't resist it.

Back in the day bug type was always the worse. Haven't played the past few games so I'm not sure what the devs have done to tweak it.

Bug type is generally awful. I love some of the designs but most aren't viable in combat. Although Volcarona absolutely wrecks.

That and poison types have always gotten the short end of the stick.

I am not sure if I have that feeling because I have never really tried training one into the higher levels, but bug-type Pokémon have always seemed pretty weak to me.

In general, Bug type. For X and Y, I notice that Dark types are going to have a hard time.
