I think that they should add Holy to D/P.
Or at least some other new type.
What do ya' think?

Oh how many topics have been made for the new type discussion. I should know, I started one. But I agree with Mudkip Madness, religion and Pokemon wouldnt really go well. A lot of people want to see Light to counter dark, but the same reason applies. Wood and Wind are baically Grass and Flying, so the four basic elements are covered. If anything, its harder now to come up with new types, but if I had to create one, I would say Space/Cosmic, with Deoxys brining with it a new breed of Pokemon thanks to the space virus that created it, or something like that.

Hey, that's a way good type!
What do you think of Virus?
Is it a good type?

Lol! I just imagined a virus type pokemon that, like Chansey/Blissey, distributed stuff to the other members of your team. But rather than HP, it was Pokerus! Lol! Imagine how great a Pokerus-inducing Softboiled would be!

Or how about a virus Porygon type? It would scramble PC's around the world!

How about a Dinosaur type, could be good? what dya think?

I kinda doubt that would fly... unless it was Pterodactyl o'course...
*Insert rimshot*

Seriously, though, I think with the Dragon type, dinosaurs are already covered. Look at Aerodactyl. :( Not to mention that the Japanese word for dinosaur is "Gyoryuu," which means "Giant Dragon."

isn't wind the same as flying? anyways, i like holy because that would be a good combat ot dark (like fire to grass). heh heh heh - so much killing of Umbreons.

have we discovered a new language?


I don't see a reason for more types, 15 should be enough to cover all the pokemon.

Datriot
May 3rd, 2005, 05:42 AM
True, they are a lot of types already, but I'm starting to find the old ones boring, if Nntendo expect to create a lot more Pokemon games then they're gonna need more than just new pokemon to keep the fans happy, new features like the pokemon contests on R/S.

Hi, Folks!
Sorry for the absence: Real Life called and can't be ignored. As stated above, Wood and Wind are nicely covered by Grass and Flying (Wood = grass+rock in my eyes: can't recall any pokemon with that duel combo!) Rather than say Holy, call the other type Spiritual or Light: couldn't Psychic come under that heading??? :\
Having a Cosmic type would certainly classify Deoxys, Solrock and Lunatone better: perhaps Chimecho could be included. I never was really convinced by it's Psychic classification anyway ( one for a Wind type pokemon!) A Virus type also sounds good: why not make it a Plague type with moves like Infect, Contagion, Vaccine, Bitter Pill and Black Death? Bleack Death could be like Perish Song: fainting of both battling pokemon after so many turns, but with a twist: switch the affected pokemon back out, and all it's allies get infected, to faint in three turns on switch in. Switch out wouldn't reset it, either: the countdown stops at switch out and resumes with switch in... :bandit:

Bug

See 16

you see there are 16 ..... jk

anyway wind would be good that way it wouldnt be affected by electricty :P not that birds would be wind type though, theyed have wind moves ....

razor
May 3rd, 2005, 10:08 AM
I'd go with a Light type instead of a Holy type. We do have Dark type Pokemon after all. And Wood type Pokemon would just be demented.

Dark Penguin
May 3rd, 2005, 02:57 PM
yeah, i prefer the name light over holy. and wood is useless, since the only pokemon i could see fitting into the type is Sudowoodo.

Murpheos
May 3rd, 2005, 03:11 PM
There are 16 Types

Actually there are 17:
Normal
Fire
Water
Grass
Electric
Ice
Fighting
Poison
Ground
Flying
Psychic
Bug
Rock
Ghost
Dragon
Steel
Dark

Hi, Folks!
Grass+rock in my eyes: can't recall any pokemon with that duel combo!

What about Lileep and Cradily? They could start a new type on their own: Ancient, or Fossil. Have all the fossil ressurectees in there, plus some more.

<<-_Lord-Krishna_->>

Id like to see wood pokemon in D/P...

Treecko: The Wood Gecko Pokemon? It seems as though there already is a wood type, but it could happen.

That's spam, you know. Try to provide insight or at least some kind of thought when you submit a response, okay?

Ancient, or Fossil. Have all the fossil ressurectees in there, plus some more.

Treecko: The Wood Gecko Pokemon? It seems as though there already is a wood type, but it could happen.

I always thought of those concepts as the Pokemon's class rather than its type. I look at it this way: A Pokemon's type determines which attacks give it a STAB (same type attack bonus) and which ones it is weak or immune to. A pokemon's class is more or less a flavor text or short description of that pokemon's niche in the wild. Consider this: Treecko is a grass type, so it benefits from STAB on grass moves. It is resistant to water, electricity, etc. and is weak against fire, ice, etc. But it is of class wood gecko, so that tells us a little bit about what its habitat might be, and what role it plays in that habitat. Anyway, that's how I look at it. I hope I'm making sense. ^_^;

Datriot
May 5th, 2005, 02:45 AM
Yeah, I know what you mean, I think they should put in Light or Holy(same thing) but the rest of them types are better as classes like you said.

Neo Android
May 5th, 2005, 09:37 AM
I say light not holy. light would be very affect against dark and ghost, but if there is a new type such as light, it should have less pokemon then the other groups ans these pokemon would be strong.

tamayo
May 5th, 2005, 11:21 AM
I believe that there already is a new type: ???.

Has anyone ever wondered why they would call Curse that? I mean, other than it's a wierd attack.
IDK... if that was a type there would be alot of pokemon in it such as:
Ditto, Unown, Eevee (That's always been a big question), Gulpin (Why not?), and Togepi (In my opinion, it's creepy enough...).
Well that about covers what I think (Not that I think...) :bandit:

QFred
May 7th, 2005, 11:51 AM
I think all of the 3 choises suck!!!

About the ??? type, I think Gulpin could be removed and Togepi too!!!

Marauding Master

Yes I totally agree with QFred.

mizu-dragon
May 7th, 2005, 12:04 PM
I think there should be types like Sound (Exploud?) and Virtual (Porygon). They'd cover some interesting grounds.

Marauding Master
May 7th, 2005, 12:21 PM
Actually I think a Virus(Virtual) type is very suitable.

QFred
May 7th, 2005, 12:24 PM
Yes, I also think so!!!

But it has only few Pokmon!!!

mizu-dragon
May 7th, 2005, 12:27 PM
Well, in a new game it would have more. Everyone knows that the attack Bite went from Normal to Dark, right? Well, why couldn't a Pokmon change/add type(s)?
Virtual Pokmon would be a very interesting group, probably able to hack into computers etc. It's good potential.

Dark Penguin
May 7th, 2005, 12:30 PM
yeah, virtual would be really cool, but can you see them fitting into the type matchups list?

Marauding Master
May 7th, 2005, 12:35 PM
Well it pwns steel and elec, and water and ghost pawn him, yes?

Porygon could be virtual.

QFred
May 7th, 2005, 12:39 PM
Virtual: Conersion, Conversion 2, Sharpen, *Hack, Spyware*

Sound is also very suitable, but only for wording dual with Normal.
Candidates: Jigglypuff, Wigglytuff, Whismur, Loudred, Exploud
Attacks: Growl, Screech, Sonicboom, Sing, Grasswhistle (even if the name..), Hyper Voice, Perish Song, Roar, Supersonic, etc..

Dark Penguin
May 8th, 2005, 07:16 PM
i don't like sound because its WAY to narrow and then what would cross breeds like voltorb be - half electric half sound, or half electric half normal (sound=sonicboom and screech, and normal=tackle, selfdestruct, explode)

Lord Jaws
May 8th, 2005, 09:04 PM
Light instead of Holy, definately. Ive thought wood should be a type though. Shiftry could fit, not Sudowoodo bcoz he is a rock pretending to be a tree. Pineco could possibly fit it aswell. More when I think of them.

Bakura-kun
May 9th, 2005, 02:29 PM
I'll go for holy. XD But yeah, they'd probably have light rather than holy >< Although holy sounds more powerful XD
Also, wouldn't wind be the same as flying? O.o And Wood be similar to grass?

kohei
May 10th, 2005, 03:30 AM
Wood=grass
Wind=flying

Holy? I think Light is better too... make it too religious and parents will start bashng Pokemon like when Dark came out. I think Sound type is quite good.

Shinin
May 10th, 2005, 11:13 AM
Wood is too similar to grass, air is too similar to flying and holy is dumb.

Dark Penguin
May 10th, 2005, 02:17 PM
i don't like any of them except light. It is simple and logical to make moves for, while the others are.....not.

tamayo
May 11th, 2005, 11:31 AM
another thing that they could do is create a BABY type... wait, that just sounds funny... well, id go for light and maybe have them create ??? type. just remember, NINTENDO, GAMEFREAK, and CREATURES never listen to suggestions.

Blaziken:Black Belt
May 11th, 2005, 01:15 PM
TOGEPI IS KOOLbut i hate Gulpin

The S
May 11th, 2005, 06:33 PM
Three types that I added to my old fangames, Holy, Crystal, and Mysterious.

Anyway, if I remember right (and I probably don't), "Dark" type was "Aku" in Japan (which means Evil), so it could be referred to as Holy in Japan and Light or something in other countries.

Dark Penguin
May 11th, 2005, 06:44 PM
Hey, holy, crystal, and mysterious aren't too bad - better than a lot of the other types that have been brought up. but then again, crystal might still be too narrow. mystery could work, though, but it would be hard to fit into the type matchup list.

The S
May 12th, 2005, 06:09 PM
Well, in these fangames, Crystal was designated to Pokemon with glass or crystalline bodies/parts (mostly fanmade Pokemon). Mysterious was assigned to Pokemon like Jigglypuff, Clefairy, Chansey, Togepi, and some fanmade like Yo-So, a Pokemon that looked like a bird but was supposedly a child's imaginary friend.

And I just realized... isn't one of Ho-Oh's attacks Holy Flame or something?

Kurisutaru
May 12th, 2005, 10:59 PM
Crystal wouldn't be too narrow...might start off narrow like steel did, but it would pick up quickly because it enters the area they haven't allowed ice to--inanimate. And while I don't know how it's set up in that fangame, I'd assume crystal to have an advantage over steel since diamond cuts metal.

Light would work as well in a game...finally Flash could be categorized where it belongs, and pokemon of this type would have an advantage against dark and ghost types. Not so sure what this one would be weak to though unless I'm allowed to plug crystal here.

Virtual is another great one. All of Porygon's conversion type moves could be classified as virtual. I'd figure those of this type would be weak to electric though and they'd have an advantage against other virtual types as well as steel. Best part? Immunity to normal type attacks.

Sound? Dunno about that one. Out of existent moves, I think Hyper Voice is the only one capable of doing direct damage. If such a type could exist, I'd think it would have an advantage against crystal, ice, and rock. Steel types would be resistant though.

As for my own idea...well, I'll have to get back to you on that.

Oh, and the attack is Sacred Fire I believe.

Moggy
May 12th, 2005, 11:44 PM
holy would be the best obviosly and wind/flying attacks are allready made

Bionickai001
May 14th, 2005, 05:22 AM
I would just be content with a light type. it would make pokemon types seem more complete.

Mithos
May 14th, 2005, 05:46 AM
Well, if the new type are added, the Hidden Power is screwed.
They have to re-new the HP system, which I doubt they will do.
Keep the same type, it's balanced.

Dark Penguin

Yeah, you could be right about crystal, though, then might lead to the making of more "synthetic" pokemon, and they just wouldn't seem as real. It could work, though. And flash has always seemed to me like an electric attack, after were not talking about the electricity kind of light, were talking about the holy type of light. Flash wouldn't be a holy attack. I say add light, and nothing else.

HazerDrago0n
May 18th, 2005, 02:00 PM
Well, lemme put in my two cents...

Holy Type - I really like the idea of there being something like, pure. So, something light/holy might be good. I mean, one more type won't hurt... me anyway.

Wind Type - Ummm, even though it seems similar to flying, I'm not sure about this one... It's kinda a nice idea but I wouldn't want it in the games. We have flying don't we?

Wood Type - Well, this is original. I think this one isn't so bad... but Sudowoodo which I believe would fall in this category already has Rock.. which they might use as the "wood" thing. So, don't think this one would do good.

That's what I think...

Nicks
May 25th, 2005, 03:15 AM
I think that the virus type would be very bad, because the only thype that would be good against it would be a Newtypw, vaccine, or ice type.......*cough* metroid *cough*

pokejungle
June 7th, 2005, 11:21 AM
None of the poll-listed types would be good -.-;;

Wood=grass
Wind=flying
Holy=don't even TOUCH religion -.-;;

JX Valentine
June 7th, 2005, 11:49 AM
You know, I find it kind of funny that a "Holy" type was suggested when Pokemon's been the center of religious controversy for years (mainly because some people have found a lot of "Satanic symbolism" in it). I'd like to know what the anti-Pokemon crowd would think of such a devilish game having that in it. XD

Seriously, though, I voted for Holy, but only with the thought that it could be called the "Light" type. (After all, we've basically got our bases covered with Flying and Grass in regards to Wind and Wood, respectively. Perhaps those types could be better off renamed, but they're still there.)

Besides the thought that having a Holy type (as opposed to a Light type) would tick off a lot of people, Light really does sound fairly general. After all, not all Dark-type Pokemon are evil or give some sort of allusion to demons or beasts. (Case and point: Umbreon.) Likewise, I really don't think Pokemon that could possibly be reclassed as Light-type Pokemon (maybe the Cleffa line, for example) would all be angelic or cute and fluffy.

pokejungle
June 7th, 2005, 12:06 PM
I totally agree. And, light is a better type name. But even if it focused on more light-based things, like rainbows, light beams, etc it would be better.

And some moves could be re-classified, like Aura Beam, Solar Beam, etc.

Nine
June 7th, 2005, 08:03 PM
New type yes, holy type no.

Religion and Pokemon = no.

Shinin
June 18th, 2005, 05:54 AM
And I just realized... isn't one of Ho-Oh's attacks Holy Flame or something?

Sacred Fire, not Holy Flame.

collin152
June 20th, 2005, 06:40 PM
were talking about the holy type of light.
No, i'm rather sure we mean light as in illumination, such as attacks flash, solarbeam, sunny day, morning sun, moon light, luster purge, LIGHT screen, possibly reflect, and other things regarding light. This needn't bring up religious heat and such, as it isn't holy or sacred, its light, or luminous. Such combo types could include light/grass(Sunflora, anybody?), light/fire(an animated torch, prehaps?), light/dark(the new medicham!), light/rock(phospheresent material in creative shapes) , ect. It could be strong offensifly against dark and ghost and perhaps so far as fighting, defensivly weak to dark(like a ghost verses a ghost, you dish out, they dish out.)and say... Ground(blocks light)... or maybe ground would resist... But you get the point.

pokejungle
June 20th, 2005, 07:09 PM
I totally agree ^^

You had some really good ideas! Psychic should someone play into that too though...>>;

Black Lotus
June 21st, 2005, 03:07 AM
I voted for 'Holy' as it was the sanest option from the three. It'd be the opposite type of Dark, immune to it and Holy would be SE against Dark. Then they could whipe out the Darkness weakness to bugs or fighting, because it just sounds so absurb o.O

Plus, wind exists as Flying and wood exists as grass, we don't need sub-typeish types.

Mattokun
June 21st, 2005, 03:13 AM
I don think they would bring repligeon into pokemon and wind is the sames flying i like woo cos sudawodo would be in dat one

Actually, Sudowoodo is a rock type PRETENDING to be a tree. Therefore, it would not be wood type if that were to be a new type in D/P, which it probably won't be because like many have said,it's too much like grass. Light makes so much sense because it goes against dark. That'd be my vote.

Datriot
June 21st, 2005, 03:23 AM
Sound would be good, there are lots of sound-based moves and some pokemon are even resistent to sound-based moves.

Mattokun
June 21st, 2005, 03:25 AM
What about the type sound, there are lots of sound-based moves and some pokemon are even resistent to sound-based moves!

Makes sense to me. Even so they'd have to add a few more pokemon to make the type group bigger. Also they could change some, like the jigglypuff family for example, to sound type like the magnemite family change to steel/electric in G/S/C

Datriot
June 21st, 2005, 03:32 AM
Yeah, just like Dark, they changed bit to dark in G/S/C and added a couple of dark Pokemon, I think this is the most logical type.

Black Lotus
June 21st, 2005, 03:35 AM
But, umm..how can you argument which types are weak and which resistant to Sound-type monsters o.O And Holy is not the same as a religion, Final Fantasy has the "Holy" spell, and it does not refer to anything religional o.O

Mattokun
June 21st, 2005, 03:36 AM

People would take it and twist it to be religious. It's just safer to call it "light" but be the same thing.

June 21st, 2005, 03:42 AM
Meh, I guess you're right, in both.

Dark Penguin
June 21st, 2005, 06:41 AM
not necessarily. many games have holy types, and no one cares. I think they would choose light because light vs. dark, but holy would not offend religions at all.

Smarties-chan
June 22nd, 2005, 02:19 AM
I don't really think there should be new types if nintendo wants a new type why not take the Unknown type and make more moves for it?

June 22nd, 2005, 09:46 AM

MY religion would find it sacreligous. It's all in how you interpret holy. Either A) Coming from the heavens from an ominpotent being, or B) Being good, virtuous, and in all manners pleasent.

Charizard_Fire_God
June 28th, 2005, 04:25 AM

Which were cast by white mages. Which are clerics. Which are priests. Which is religious. But thats beside the point.

Iron Mankey
July 2nd, 2005, 05:02 PM
As mentioned before:

Wood= Grass
Wind= Flying
Virus (If meant in the disease sort of way)= Poison
Virus (If meant in computer sort of way)= Too narrow. Only Porygon truly fits, and how many virtual Pokmon do we want running around?
Sound= That's good, but how would it mix in with all the other elements?
Crystal= Hmmm... good Vs. Steel, Rock....what else is there?
Mysterious= What the heck will it do?
???= Same as Mysterious

Holy: All good, just call it Light instead.
Strong Vs: Dark, Ghost.
Weak Vs: Ground(gets shut out), Grass (Absorbs it), Steel(No effect)

And here's my own little idea for light: Effective against Water and Ice in a Damage over Time fashion. Water slowly evaporates when exposed doesn't it? And Ice melts in Light.

Datriot
July 3rd, 2005, 01:27 AM
Oh, yeah, some of those ideas are pretty good!

Aisu K.
July 3rd, 2005, 10:34 PM
I think there are already some Pokmon that could be classified as Crystal:
Porygon(2) : These two look pretty crystalline.
Star(yu/mie) Their bodies look pretty crystalline, but don't get me started about the "cores." (although Psychic would have to be cut from Starmie)
Sableye: This one already has two types, but it has gems all over it. I don't know about this one.

Also, Wind can't always mean Flying. Imagine an entity that can control the atmosphere from the ground.(sounds like a Wind/Psychic... "Psyclone?" :P )

Wood shouldn't be a type. Maybe a special ability called something like "Wooden Armor" that give Grass-types stronger Defense in bad situations (I think the games call it, "...in a pinch.")

I think Light is better than Holy, because such attacks would be about more than religion. (Attacks like Flash, maybe?) I think Light covers more ground than Holy. The way I see it:
Holy=Religion
Light=Religion & Illumination

I think a good point was made here.

Dark Penguin
July 4th, 2005, 09:15 AM
i would say light solely because of light/dark. plus that would allow for moves like flash and light screen and all those. i still don't like crystal or wood or those small ones, though. just too small.

Happy Dude
July 4th, 2005, 08:42 PM
Hmm,holy nah it would get in Nintendo's way.Which could cause probloms.

Wind,just doesn't seem right i mean you can't have a pokemon made of wind can you.XD.

But wood would be the most logic in my opinion because you can have a pokemon made from wood eg,Sudowoodo.

QFred
July 8th, 2005, 01:38 PM
OK, let's see my point of view!

Crystal, awwww... no!!! And the ideas of Pokmon you're including, meh....!
Crystal could be an atribute, somethin that make them super rare (like shinies), and also make them have special attacks, even through they are the same Pokmon as their equals (ok, not equals, same species).

Wood, grass, Sudowoodo!

Light/Holy, Holy is a bit religious as everyone said! Maybe some Pokmon like Togepi, Togetic, etc... and attacks and abilities changed to fit well in: Chlorophyll, double speed when sunlight and after the cast of a light type move!! Good idea, no!!

Sound is good idea!! Change some Pokmon, that don't include neither Voltorb or Electrode!! And some attacks!!!

They can't afford any new types. A new type would mean severe dis/advantages to other types. Like if they did make a, I don't know, Wind Pokemon, chances are Flying types would be weak against it. And with new types come new pokemon, but old pokemon would have to be modified into this new type, which would ruin a whole game. Gold/Silver is lucky that the game went smoothly along with the types and pokemon.

wind-yeah i dont get it
wood-sorta get it
light-the next popular type that could happen
virus-cool, some1 like deoxys or they could make an amoeba like thing.
diamond/crystal-a little 2 weird, but still a good idea
i guess that's it because every1 took my idea

Holy is lame and will get in Nintendo's way.

Wood is like grass. Lame.

Wind is like flying. Lame.

Nintendo CONFIRMED there will be no new types. So why are we making new ones?

Wind type would kinda fall into the category of flying. I wouldn't care though. Seeing a new type would be nice.

I'd Like Cyber type for D/P that would be awsome. It would be good for Porygon and Porygon2

That is.....also lame. It's like a combo of Psychic and Electric. Also read my previous post.

I don't. And Besides, Cyber has nothing to do with Psychic!

Cyber is Steel and Electric combined. That would be stupid. Sound is pretty good, though. There are already a handful of Pokmon and moves that would fit in that category (Whismur for example).

I think if there is dark types, there should be light.

I know why dark types came, but why not other types to be immune against psychic? That's what I like to know.

Psychic IS the Light type.

THERE'S NO NEW TYPES YOU IDIOTS!!!! READ THE FREAKIN' POST!!!!

Why isn't there a light type?

The Dark and Steel types were created for basically two reasons. One was to add more flexibility to the game. The second was to nuke the INSANELY powerful RBY Psychic types. I'm sure some of you remember the first Pokemon Colosseum where it took SIX Pokemon to defeat the insanely powerful Mewtwo. The Steel type and especially the Dark Type were created in order to counter that flaw. That's why Steel has a resistance to Psychic and Dark has an immunity. And note, NEITHER of those two types are good at attacking.

Not only that, but look at the Pokemon that have that typing. The poster children for Dark: Umbreon, Tyranitar, and Houndoom. Umbreon has NO attacks, but incredible defenses. It's also weak against the type that has around TWENTY-TWO attack moves not counting Seismic Toss. Tyranitar is a Pseudo-Legendary, but its Special Attack Power is not phenomenal, and like most Dark-types, it relies mainly on its superior attack power. Absol can attest to this. Anything that isn't Psychic or Ghost will not take all that much damage from a Crunch, even with STAB. And Houndoom (and also Sharpedo), the only Pokemon that CAN do tons of damage with Crunch, has such pathetic defenses that it's TwoHKO'd by almost anything that has attack power.

There won't be a light type until Dark becomes broken, and because Dark is such a sad attacking type, that isn't very likely.

Then why can't it hurt dark types?

But it doesn't explain why light types are psychic
Even so, why would they made dark types in the first place? Why won't they made another name to balance up against psychic?

Bliksem

There are no light-types. There will probably never be light-types because there's no need for them.

Think, if you will, that a Psychic holds massive amounts of energy within its mind. The Dark-type absorbs this energy while the steel type has dulled its mind to the Psychic influences. Besides, there are no other types that wouldn't sound halfway farfetched.

GARGLE!

All three of those types blow, especially Wood and Wind.

Wood is entirely covered by Grass. Grass really should've been named Plant. I think it was originally, but I'm not sure.
It'd be nothing more than a physical-based version of Grass.

Wind is entirely covered by Flying, especially since attacks such as Gust and Aeroblast are all Flying type.
And Wind would just be a Special-type version of Flying if it did exist.

Of those three, Holy is the most likely of them. Before you say, "N0 iT w00d b3 t3h LITE type inzt3d cUz 0f DARK!!!1!1!1!11", you should know that in the Japanese version, Dark was called Evil ("Aku" to be exact, but if I remember right that translates to Evil).
And what's the opposite of Evil? Well, Good. But a "Good-type" would sound even lamer than Wind and Wood, so the closest thing would be Holy. Though, it probably would end up as Light in the American version...


As for a type that might actually be likely to exist--try Sound. Levitate isn't the only "blocks a certain type of attacks" ability--there's Soundproof, and also Cacophony (the unused ability, which does the same thing). If Sound was made into an actual type, these would probably shift to blocking Sound-type attacks, rather than "sound-based" ones.

i think because of dark there should defenitly be a light type to nemisis it cause dark is boaring without holy.and yeah sound would be good

Hmm... shadow pokemon in multiplayer, anyone? Also, I like the light type... lights up the darkness. It would make sense. I'm sticking to my shadow pokemon idea though. Imagine using XD001 in a DS battle.

Huh? Can't purify it? Yes you can.

EDIT: Bet your Kyogre wouldn't stand a chance against my Lv. 80 Jirachi. Yes, I got it from the Bonus Disk, not an Action Replay.

You know that this is against the rules to post to something more than a year old. But I shouldn't be talking but still. Can a Mod post a new rule stating as a choice to set your Threads to last month or ealier.
