You must remember that Rock/Steel types have a lot of resistances, too. Most are that or Rock/Ground. So trying to wittle them down with other attacks won't be effective or practical.
Believe me. I had a little Aron that was like, ten levels below an enemy and they have no effective attacks. I creamed them because they were dealing so little damage XD
And rasta is right - it depends on what you want to do ^^
I meant "are used"
Expert trainers are prepared to incovenient situations. Once that Surf is can be taught to many Pokemons, it's very easy be prepared to faint a steel foe (it becomes more easy if it's also rock type, so the damage is doubled!)
