*** It came back with a vengence in ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'' in the form of Burn Up Revelation Dance, with not only a ???-type Pokemon, but also a ???-type damage-dealing move. Like Roost to Flying type, Burn Up removes the Fire type from its user, however it does not add a type back when the user is left with no type. The mono-Fire Cyndaquil and Growlithe lines get this move. On the other hand we have Oricorio with its signature ability Dancer and signature move Revelation Dance. The former causes the Pokemon with the ability to follow up someone else's a dance move immediately, and the latter is a dance move whose type depend on the primary type of the user. Now Skill Swap Dancer onto Arcanine that have used Burn Up, put the Oricorio back into the field, and Revelation Dance. The Arcanine will immediately follow up with its own Revelation Dance, which due to it losing its typing become a legit ???-type damage-dealing move.
*** The interaction of ???-type and Wonder Guard is also interesting in Gen VII. This setup requires a Mimic Shedinja which can only be created by teaching Ninjask the move Mimic all the way back to Gen III. Now the setup requires Shedinja learning Entrainment through Mimic off a team mate, bestowing its Wonder Guard ability to an Arcanine and the Arcanine use Burn Up. Due to the ???-type have no weakness this Arcanine cannot be targeted by any damaging move, only status conditions and weather can take it down without changing the Arcanine's type again, if the Arcanine have ran out of Rest. Otherwise either the opponent have to use one of Soak, Forest's Curse or Trick-or-Treat to add a type to the Arcanine, or faint it with a Perish Song.

* In ''MarioAndLuigiSuperstarSaga'', the shark fin enemy in Gwarhar Lagoon is identified as "????". This is because there are actually two of them that look the same until they attack. One of them has the official name Sharkbone, while the other is a variant of Cheep Cheep.

** In Generations II-IV, a "???" type existed which was neutral against all other types. However, this only appeared as the type of the move Curse (which as a status move isn't normally affected by ElementalRockPaperScissors anyway) and in a few other niche situations.[[note]]Using moves like Conversion to become a mono-typed Flying Pokémon, then using Roost (heals the user but removes their Flying type); using Weather Ball in ''VideoGame/PokemonXDGaleOfDarkness'' when the game-exclusive Shadow Sky is in effect; hacking a "??? Plate" into the game and equipping it to Arceus; hacking an unhatched Egg into being usable in battle.[[/note]] In Generation V it was removed (and Curse changed to a Ghost-type move), presumably for the number of headaches it created for the programmers.

*** There is also the final overworld area in the Light World, from where you can enter the final boss and get the ending, which is simply called "?" like the area in ''Ocarina of Time''. It's heavily implied to be the top of Parallel Tower, but it's not confirmed.
