    Just for fun, I thought about what pokemon types would best suit each DC super hero/villain that I could think of at the top of my head. Here's my take, feel free to comment yours.

    Superman/Supergirl - Flying/Steel

    Batman/Batwoman - Dark/Fight

    Wonderwoman - Fairy/Fight

    Green Lantern - Psychic/Normal

    Cyborg - Steel

    Flash/Kid Flash - Electric

    Aquaman - Water

    Shazam - Electric/Flying

    Martian Manhunter - Psychic

    Green Arrow - Grass/Ghost

    Black Canary - Normal/Fight

    Nightwing - Fight/Dark

    Vixen - Normal

    Constantine - Normal/Ghost

    Swamp Thing - Water/Ground

    Hawkgirl/Hawkman - Flying

    Firestorm - Fire

    Deadshot - Normal/Dark

    Black Lightning - Electric/Fight

    Atom - Normal/Steel

    Brainiac - Steel/Psychic

    Robin - Fight

    Starfire - Fire/Psychic

    Raven - Ghost/Dark

    Beast Boy - Normal/Fairy

    Blue Beatle - Bug/Fight

    Lex Luthor - Normal/Psychic

    Joker - Dark/Normal

    Harley Quinn - Dark/Fairy

    Poison Ivy - Poison

    Gamzee Makara Let people enjoy things...

    I'd put the Joker with Poison myself. Because Joker Venom.

    I'd give Sinestro Dark and Fighting. He is both the galactic master of fear and has the strongest will in the universe, canonically.

    And I'd give Zatanna Psychic, Fairy and Ghost.

    Fire and Ice should be paired with their obvious types.

    Booster Gold calls for Fighting, Steel and Dragon.

    Blue Beetle(Both Ted Kord and Jaime Reyes) should be Bug, Flying and Steel.

    The Batman Who Laughs would have Poison, Steel, Dark and Fighting

    Deadshot...Water(Inteleon), no question.

    And now for my obscure pick...

    Uncle Sam would have Fighting, Ghost and Psychic(He is a talismanic spirit of the US's patriotism and will, so he fits)

    I’d actually think Cyborg would be Steel/Electric to not only show off his robotic characteristics but also his knowledge about technology.

    Martian Manhunter would be better suited as Psychic/Ghost since he can become intangible at will just like other ghost Pokémon such as Gengar.

    Poison Ivy is definitely Poison/Grass because she has shown weakness to fire and extremely heat before and her body has chlorophyll in it just like a plant. Plus she has total control over plant life much like Venusaur or Trevanant.

    The Marvel Family I think would all get different type combos. Billy would be Electric/Flying. Mary would be Billy’s female counterpart. Freddy would be Electric/Fighting to represent how he is stronger powered up and overcomes being physically handicapped. Eugene would be Electric/Steel to represent his powers of controlling technology. Pedro would be Electric/Fighting because of his strength. And Darla would be Electric/Normal because she is the smallest of the family and the fastest which a lot of the smaller Normal types tend to have good stats in.

    More of the Batman villains:

    • The Riddler - Psychic/Dark
    • The Penguin - Ice
    Robin could probably be pure Flying. Krypto the Superdog would be Normal/Flying, because he's a dog that can fly. I also think Poison Ivy should be Grass/Poison too, as opposed to pure Poison.

    Wouldn't Lex Luthor be Normal/Dark, because he's a villain and villains are usually associated with Dark-types?

    I think of him more of an anti-hero. I mean he isn’t wrong with his belief that if Superman is not put under some sort of control to restrict his powers, he could turn into an extremely and virtually unstoppable threat to humanity. And honestly I don’t see how the scientists under his employment count as being evil either. They’re just doing a job and usually Lex only acts out against Superman and not the rest of the world. The Injustice storyline is a perfect example of how dangerous an unchecked Superman can become.

    I personally made Lex Luthor as Normal/Psychic because:

    1) He has a normal human physiology.
    2) He has a great mind.

    I don’t think intelligence automatically means psychic. Not when there are characters with actual psychic powers running around.

    Also, Lex doesn’t see himself as evil, hence why no Dark type.

    Exactly. Maybe he did some really terrible things during Superman’s early comic book days but Lex never really did anything that would have killed millions worldwide like the Joker with his Joker Toxin. Lex just wants to get Superman’s powers in control in the event he goes off the deep end and starts going on a rampage. Batman has had the same fear which is why he had a secret weapon that he’d use should this ever happened which is what Batman Vs Superman was about. Superman can easily snap a person’s neck like a twig, shatter someone with his freeze breath, and even burn a hole through an innocent person’s head with his heat vision. So you can’t really say Lex is a villain and deserves to be a Dark Type when he has the best intentions of keeping innocent people safe from a virtually unstoppable being.
