"Need more water types!"
So as you know, Black and White lacked water types throughout the game, while Diamond and Pearl lacked fire-types (that both introduced in their generations). What would you like to see more of in this generation? Considering what you've seen of the region so far, what types do you think might rise in usage, or what typings desperately need more Pokemon for? Discuss your thoughts!

So far we have seen Forest area as that is what was displayed in the starters battles and also a bit of overworld roaming along with the trainers. The vine swinging and spider web seem to indicate there is a strong Grass/Bug/Poison presence not to mention Xerneas appeared out of a Forest. There was a arid looking area with a complex in the back ground some maybe there is a city/factory something so Ground/Rock/Steel. Then the urban French feel to it says Normal type to me. At this point who knows but I personal favor more Ghost types since it is the smallest Type group in the game.

Lance January 9th, 2013 7:40 PM

Less Water, Grass and Bug types would be a plus. I'd prefer if they made a decent number of all the types available for a little diversity, being limited to literally one choice for a Fire type if you didn't pick the Starter (Here's looking at you, DPPT) is annoying. So more Fire, Electric, Ghost, Rock, Ground and Steel types available Pre-National Dex would be nice.

Need more Fire types. And need to make Grass types have some sort of relevant advantage again. (Being the weakest type is not fun.)

Ludger January 9th, 2013 7:47 PM

More Fire is always good. I wish they could find some kind of balance, though. And if not a balance in the types of Pokmon out of all the new ones, at least fill those gaps in the regional dex with Pokemon of the types that are skimped on in this gen.

I wouldn't mind some more Steel, Ice, Dark, and Fire types myself.

Xander Olivieri January 9th, 2013 7:58 PM

Needs more Dragon types. Just cause they are pure win~

Pinkie-Dawn January 9th, 2013 8:04 PM

We need more Fire, Electric, Ice, and Ghost types and less Grass, Water, and Normal types.

Ludger January 9th, 2013 8:06 PM

I agree, as long as they're not legendary Dragon types.

Hiroshi Sotomura January 9th, 2013 8:08 PM

In regards to Dragon types, they're already quite strong and a bunch even overpowered. There's little demand for those types when Fire was so mediocre in Gen 4.

pokemanmdj January 9th, 2013 8:11 PM

I could agree with needing more Water types.
But we could also use Fire and Electric types- and maybe even a couple of Ice types.

Deokishisu January 9th, 2013 8:13 PM

More Ghost-types please! My favorite type, and there's like none of them around! How is that right for ANY type?

Easily obtainable Fire Pokemon that aren't in that stupid monkey trio would be incredibly welcome too.

Eucliffe January 9th, 2013 8:21 PM

I personally think we don't need as many Water types since it's already the most abundant type. However, I do agree we need more Ghost Pokemon, as that's currently the least abundant type. I'd say Dragon, too, but only if most weren't powerful or psuedo-legendaries/actual legendaries. Maybe more Ice types, too, since that's the third least common type out there.

ANinyMouse January 9th, 2013 8:25 PM

I definitely want more Poison types. It's gotten to be my favorite as of late... I kinda wish there were more Poison-types with higher stats, specifically. Poison is the type with the lowest stats, now that Bug got upped so much. Ghosts also have low stats in general, but their immunities help make up for that. And I want stronger and more reliable Poison-type attacks! Like a physical move with 100 power and more than 70% accuracy.

Of course, Ice, Dragon and Ghost are pretty rare, so we need some diversity, there.

OmegaRuby and AlphaSapphire January 9th, 2013 8:30 PM

When I saw the title I thought Forever was suggesting for there to be more water types... I think we don't need that much more water but than again 2/3 of the world is water (Aqua though appreciates the amount of water types).

I would like more fire types, they're still on the low side, as well as Fire, and Electric (Unova lacked good electric types apart from Zekrom.)

shubshub January 9th, 2013 8:47 PM

I think we need more Fire Types as the are Very Little Fire Types in the Games and You Normally don't get one till late game (Unless you pick the Starter [In this case being Fennekin])

(Duzzy<3) January 9th, 2013 8:57 PM

I'd like to see some more, useful, Bug Pokemon. Some Ice, Steel, and some better Poison types would be nice, too.

Platinum Lucario January 9th, 2013 8:58 PM

I think there really needs to be more Dark-types in this generation.

flight January 9th, 2013 9:16 PM

Bug and Dark types, please. At least, have some more types of those that were least abundant last generation. Fire types wouldn't hurt too.

Oh, and better ice types, please? .-.

pikakitten January 9th, 2013 9:31 PM

Yeah this place makes me feel like using some cool dark-types so definitely those, I don't think water types since they're the most popular type xD

Forever January 12th, 2013 2:11 AM

Fire and Grass. Grass because sap sippers in NU would be of much appreciation, and so would better fire types in NU. :x Yes, I am competitively bias but those types have been lacking and I'm getting sick of water lmao.

Miss Anne Thrope January 12th, 2013 2:17 AM

I really, REALLY want more water Pokemon that aren't fish/reptile inspired. A water Pokemon that is inspired by an animal that you wouldn't associate with water. A water-cat would be awesome. I think it is almost required to have a decent water Pokemon on your in-game team. If you didn't get Oshawott in B/W, you pretty much could have the creepy Ghost/Water thing or Swanna. More water choices will be awesome.
I love the dual types they came up last gen, and I'm hoping for more. Ghost/Fire is awesome. I almost want an evolution for Ninetales, being Fire-Ghost.. But then I think of how many ways it could go wrong, so I think "..Naw.." you know? Anyhow.
We don't need many grass or bug types with what was introduced last gen.
MORE COOL POISON TYPES! Less dual grass/poison and bug/poison.

Hikamaru January 12th, 2013 3:30 AM

We need better Ice-types, especially given that Unova lacked dual-Ice Pokemon other than Kyurem.

Also, I love how cool Ice-types are.

classiccartoonsftw January 12th, 2013 3:46 AM

I'd like to see more Fire, Electric, Rock, Ghost, and Poison typed Pokes in this generation.

I mean, I want to see more GOOD Pokemon of these types. And when I say good, I mean OU or UU material. No more Pikachu clones, no more crappy Bug/Flying or Bug/Poison types (although I would like to see a Venomoth evo and a male Combee evo), etc.

Fumiaki_Fikri January 12th, 2013 4:01 AM

I just prefer ghost and water type pokemon, but some fossils pokemon would be great too ...

Ω Ruby and α Sapphire January 12th, 2013 4:14 AM

Like Hikari, I think we need some more Ice types, as Unova was seriously lacking in that department. Also as someone else mentioned, grass types need somework. They are one of if not my favourite type, but they have quite a hew weaknesses and fairly shallow offensive movepools. I propose that grass types could make up for their weaknesses if there BST were higher than most other types. This would be an effective way to get grass in the right place again.
