First off just to tell you, I'm not sure if this is in the right place. Please move it if it isn't ^^;;

Second, this is not to speculate about what will be in D/P, but rather what you think should be there, but please, feel free to chat what you think should be in there as well.

I thought I should make a thread where people could make up their own types that they would like to see, or one that they would just love to use. Also, you could make up a cool type combination that you would like to see, or think should be in the games. Doesn't matter, either way.

For me, personally, I think that there should be Light type Pokemon. Since we have Dark types, I think we should have the opposite type, They would be super-effective against dark and whatever else, and certain types like Dark would be ineffective against it.

As for type combinations, I think seeing a Flying/Electric Pokemon would be cool. It would eliminate their supreme weakness, electricity, and would probably be a really cool pokemon, anyway.

What do you all think? =D

A Light type would be cool and they can change all those Normal moves into Light like Flash or Morning Sun.
I can see Cosmic making an appearance. These would be space related Pokemon like Clefable, Lunatone, Solrock, Deoxys, and Jirachi. It would be a strange type though, and hard to make appropriate weaknesses and resistances.

As for type combinations, I think seeing a Flying/Electric Pokemon would be cool. It would eliminate their supreme weakness, electricity, and would probably be a really cool pokemon, anyway.

What do you think Zapdos is, huh?

Oh, well I just meant like a regular Pokemon instead of a Legendary, seeing as the legendary birds only make appearances in the first games, and through trading to others o.O

It's an insteresting theme...

And I agree with Tyson, Zapdos is the only Flying/Electric pokemon and its a legendary, so I think they made it like this because it makes him a really hard-to-beat pokemon.

I'd love to see Light pokemons, but I'd prefer a new combination, because if they make another type, it maybe a lot of trouble to make the weakness and resistances.

In my opinion, there should be a Water/Fire pokemon (I know that sounds dumb, but in any case, you know it's cool) or a Ice/Electric pokemon.

ELGONZO!!!

PS: Maybe I make a Ice/Electric or Fire/Water pokemon in my hack ;)

Yeah, I mean, If you thin about it, there isn't too many "new" combinations.
Most of the coherent combinations have already been made. The only one that it's very VERY coherent that hasn't been made is Fire/Dragon ;)

Did you ever noticed that?

ELGONZO!!!

Hey, here's a thought...what if they upgraded the type system for DP....and made the maximum for each Pokemon THREE types instead of just two?? That adds a whole new dimension to this.....

Toothache
March 23rd, 2006, 03:36 AM
Three types would make things too complex. Besides, look at Sableye, that has only two types and no weaknesses. (unless you count a Foresight/Fighting weakness). It's like adding a new type, it's unnecessary since things are nicely balanced now. Dark and Steel were necessary additions, anything more isn't really and would throw the balance back out of whack.

bluestorm
March 23rd, 2006, 03:44 AM
thats a good idea! well it does have good/bad sides to it... grr.... can never get the supper effective on sableye!!! grrr...... yah a bit too complex but I wonder if that will happen although I doubt it, but we'll see.....in the next.... *looks at watch* 4-9 months i gess... sigh!:\

Raze-finiarel
March 23rd, 2006, 07:51 AM
All's I can say is:
A: Steel and Dark were only made to balance out the number of types, like Toothache mentioned. They won't make any new types. Period.

B: Dragon's are already very Powerful, and adding fire would decrease the damage from ice, a Dragon's biggest weakness.That's probably why they haven't added THE single most obvious type combination ever. I'd still like to see a Thunder/Dragon, Dark/Dragon, or Ghost/Dragon.

March 23rd, 2006, 01:31 PM

ghost normal seems maybe a bit too much for me. perhaps Normals nor ghosts could attack it. plus it probly would be weak against fighting and/or dark. sorry! I shouldnt critisize! XD cool ideas anyway!

No its okay. I know what you are trying to prove but a Ghost/Normal type can get knocked out by Dark types. They could make it like I never said that they will make a Ghot/Dark and then they did a Sableye.

Yes if you get a fighting type Pokemon that has Foresight and then use a fighting type move then yes. Who ever made Sableye is a real genious. And I think Bug is also super effective

Okay lets see
Ice weakness -Fire, Steel, Fighting and Rock
Poison- Ground and Psychic
That seems to be good. Maybe that certain Pokemon could have a very good Defense Stat and a weaker Special Attack.
How about Ghost/Normal:t201-qu:

There is a Fire/Ground type-Numel&Camerupt. Psychic/Dark weakness-Bugx4 thats good. Its like the same as Swampert being a Ground/Water type and Grass is x4 the damage

Forci Stikane
April 3rd, 2006, 05:01 PM
Rayquaza, Latios, Latias...only 3 legendary Dragons is not too many. Besides, I'm thinking more along the lines of chinese-dragon-like representing the 4 elements (Fire, Water, Earth, and Air (lightning)) similar to how Groudon and Kyogre represented the sea and land...

I think that there's some belief similar to the Zodiac that 4 dragons control the forces of the planet or something like that *reference to Digimon*... That's where the idea came from.

Ice demon
April 3rd, 2006, 05:21 PM
I really want to see a dragon/ice and a dragon/electric both with levitate ability...
[On an unrelated note, i want arti to get spikes...I mean delibird gets it...why shouldnt articuno?]

Actually, water/steel is a cool combo.
Only weaknesses would be electric/ground/fighting....with a pack of resistances..

Since there are Pokemon from
Earth:Groundon
Land::t201-qu:(Grass, Normal or something else)
Sea:Kyrogue
Sky::t201-qu:(flying type)

Maybe they will put the missing Pokemon as the 2 main legis in diamond/pearl.

...Earth and Land are the same thing......

My point was Pokemon representing the actual elements, not massive ecosystems like Groudon & Kyogre (Land & Sea are not elements, nor are they the same as Water & Earth).

I'd hate to tell you this, but:

Rayquaza (Dragon/Flying) = Sky
Celebi (Grass/Psychic) = Land/Forest whatever

^_^;

And to back up a few days and answer a question you had previously:

Water/Psychic = Starmie

See, that's the problem, I think. Many of the good type combos have already been done. Flying/Electric has Zapdos; pure Flying is going to be done by the newest bird; Dragon, while not having been overdone in canon, has been oversuggested by fans (as has Ghost); and there's way too many Water-types to even bother.

That leads me to say this: Normal-types. I'm serious. I mean, there may be sixty-two different Pokemon that are classified as Normal-types, yet the only two types that have shared Pokemon with the Normal category are Flying and Psychic. That means that out of those sixty-two Pokemon, 50% are pure Normal and the other half is either Normal/Flying or Normal/Psychic. How boring!

With that in mind, I'd personally like to see the following:

- Normal/Ghost
- Normal/Fighting (Although this isn't entirely practical, as it doesn't protect the Pokemon from its nice weakness to Fighting-type moves and, if anything, opens up an entirely new host of weaknesses.)
- Normal/Steel (Which is pretty much Mawile if you think about it.)
- Normal/Water (Which is pretty much Azurill if you think about it.)

And hey, maybe even a Normal-type legendary, just to give the type some lovin'.

...Although I'm surprised there has never been a Ghost-type legendary. You'd think there would be, considering the fact that there's a lot of legends concerning spirits. This, of course, opens up an entirely new category with possible ghosts:

- Ghost/Steel
- Ghost/Water (In honor of creepy, water-related ghosts.)
- Ghost/Fire (Which is pretty much the kitsune legend if you think about it.)
- Ghost/Grass (Mother Earth?)
- Ghost/Psychic (Why has there never been one before?)

i think that they are trying to get outta flying i mean look at the recent games:

Pokemon Emerald: Rayquaza(Dragon/Flying)
Pokemon G/S:Celebi(Flying/Grass)
Pokemon LG/FR: Zapdos(Electric/Flying), Articuno(Ice/Flying), Moltres(Fire/Flying)

So i'm think that they are tryna get outta da habit of doing flying types. so they'll probably make up a new type. Like Dino(Dinosaur), Aligator or something lol. but i think thats what they are going to do

if they did have a Light type, Light should be super effective against dark like you said, but Dark should also be super effective against light

i'd like to see another water/dragon and maybe a water/fire and grass/dragon. steel/water would be cool too (the evolution of relicanth XD), is there any ice/dragon? dark/psychic would be different lol and grass/ground

And as for new types, I think there should be sonic (or sound), it sorta goes along with the idea of light if you catch my drift. I've heard ppl saying Magma (or Lava) would be cool, but don't say it's just like fire cause it's the same relation between water and ice. (different staes, fire=gas lava=liquid, just like water=liquid ice=solid)

these are wack ideas, but maybe wood and space too

Fire isn's a gas, and lava isn't the liquid form of fire. Also, they both symbolize hotness, while ice symbolizes coldness and water symbolizes in between the two.

But what we heared of so far there will be no new types. But light really should be a new type but with what moves we have no idea. The same with Wood and if there was a space type Deoxys should be Space/Psychic then. The steel/water type for an Relicanth(ugly fish) will be a great idea, it will be the first Steel/Water type.

Wood comes from trees, which are plants, whch goes with Grass. What they COULD do is make an attack based on wood (like firing small wood splinters in a Pin Missle-style attack), but it would be a Grass-type move.
