I personally feel that, when new types are made, special consideration has to be made for competitive play. What's the reasoning for suggesting a new type, and is it necessary? What is it there to balance out, and what is it weak against? Arguably, depending on who you speak to, it can be said that Dragons tend to be most OP types out there, but that's very subjective, and I believe Steel does fulfill that purpose of resisting dragons (even if like, 90% of them carry Fire Blast. Oh well). I remember making an earlier post in this thread about this, but if a new type is going to made to counter anything, it should be made to counter Dragons effectively to certain extent, but even that is a huge stretch, considering there are also good mons out there, who are neither Steel nor Ice and can do some serious damage to Dragon-type Pokemon.
