Psychic - Dark - Fighting is not a balanced triangle.


Perfect triangles are a pain in the ass. Its fine to just focus on one-way relationships. Qed greninja dark > delphox psychic > chesnaut fighting and primarina fairy > incineroar dark > decidueye ghost.

In fact, thats why id be opposed to psy/fgt/drk, been there done that. Try something new like... i dunno, ice/ground/rock? Or something?

Do Fighting, Flying, Rock instead. It's better balanced.
(Hitting SE: Fighting > Rock > Flying > Fighting)
(Hitting NVE: Fighting < Flying < Rock < Fighting)

That's literally the only perfect triangle. Psychic/Dark/Fighting is cancer due to Dark having an immunity and OP moves specifically to destroy Psychic type. Psychic types don't even have good physical moves either, it's not a balanced triangle
