To me, I think dual type moves would be rather interesting in a way, since there would be the secondary type to the move which would all add up, like for instance... Blaze Kick being Fire/Fighting against a Pokémon that is Normal/Water would be 1 x 1 ÷ 2 x 2 ÷ 2 which would equal to x0.5 as the the damage result.
I always imagined Dual-Typed attacks attacking a pokemon to be like:
e.g/ Fire/Fighting to Normal/Water. Fire against Normal/Water is 0.5x and Fighting against Normal/Water is 2x.
0.5x X 2x = 1x so it would deal neutral damage.

Anyway, back on topic, triple types would be hilarious but quite confusing for the younger players.
Now think of triple types + double typed moves! By my calculations, you could potentially deal 512x damage! But that is impossible due to the way Pokemon types work.
