Gen 1 doesn’t have steel ;) Unless Alolan Sandshew or Diglet are in the game.

Yeah there are more types that would be effective against Rock. They’re just trying to keep it simple. Hopefully the requirement becomes more lax in later gyms and it isn’t always two or three specific types.

I also wonder what about having a Pokemon with a strong move type but it’s not necessarily of that type itself. Like Pikachu knowing Low Kick for example. Electric is weak against Rock but Fighting is strong.

If the requirement looked at your Pokemon’s moves I think that would be better and be less restrictive.
