Rock - Fight
Since the symbol for rock is a balled fist it should be clear. I considered Rock, but I couldn't get a triangle that made sense.
Scissors - Steel
Weak against Fight attacks. Since scissors have metal blades (or plastic), it should be a given. However, to make sure the triangle is closed, I decided to give it Dark attacks, since cutting can be considered vicious. Crunch could also be an attack that would fit a scissor.
Paper - Ghost
This was the hardest choice of all. I tried Grass, Ice, but it never seemed right and wouldn't close the triangle properly. I also thought of Flying, but that wouldn't help much for Scissors. Ghosts are often shown to be white (in cartoons etc.), like fresh paper. Also, spells and curses are written on paper.
To close the triangle, it learns Psychic attacks.
The Rock symbol being a fighting fist makes sense, you wanna punch someone you make a fist
also for the scissors/dark idea, the symbol for scissors, sticking out two fingers is the same thing you would do to poke someones eyes out, a cheap move in a fight or the old "im watching you/ive got my eyes on you",
as for the flat hand for paper and ghost/psychic, its like a wave or a friendly gesture or when you put your hands up to calm someone down, it would quell the fighting fist anyway, psychic types have a lot to do with calming or meditation influences, ghost not so much though, or like as a counter to the fist, a flat hand can block a punch and deflect it
this would make "Rock" a Fighting type strong Physical Attacker with a lot of HP, "Scissors" a Dark type Speedy Special Attacker and "Paper" a Psychic type Strong Defensive/Special Defensive
I think that could work out for a legendary trio type thing, the only thing thats kinda strange is that "Paper" is the strongest defense and not "Rock"...hmm, but I guess as long as its not actually rock type then that doesnt matter right?
