From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
While many type combinations are actually quite common (sometimes even more so than Pokémon of single types), there are several Pokémon which have type combinations unique to either their species or their evolutionary family. These Pokémon are listed below as of Generation VI.
Many Pokémon have two types, rather than just one. The complex nature in which types can be arranged means there are a possible 324 different type permutations (including single types). However, due to the games' advantage/disadvantage multiplication system, a Pokémon which is Dark/Ghost is treated the same as one that is Ghost/Dark. As such, there are 171 distinct type combinations.
For the purposes of this list, type combinations are considered commutative; that is to say, Spiritomb and Sableye would be treated as having the same type combination as they have the same weaknesses and resistances.

List of Pokémon with formerly unique type combinations
- There are 27 different species of Pokémon that do not have the same type combination as another.
- Tornadus is currently the only single-type Pokémon that does not share the same type as any other.
- Many Pokémon gain their unique type combination through evolution and, as a result, some of those featured here are not featured with their pre-evolutions. Conversely, Surskit is the only Pokémon on this list whose evolution is not also listed.
- Generation V introduced the most Pokémon with unique type combinations, with 32.
- Marill, Azumarill, Magnemite, Magneton, Togetic, Togekiss, Cottonee, and Whimsicott are all Pokémon which only gained unique typings in a generation later than their initial one.
