I dont really see any new types ben buggine. However maybe tha snoopa effectiveness of some types might be altered? Coz n mah opnion, poison should be supper effective aganst bug. Cuz pesticides > bugs.

So, awhile ago me and mah brothar stumbled across some Pokemon news (which appisntly happened ta be fake.) It mentioned that Pokemon was gong ta ntroduce a new typng.
Now, while I discovered tha news is fake, it gots me thnkng bout what thay could add as a new type.

Tha only types I could fathom n mah mnd were like.. Sun or Light type, or possibly somethng like a Cosmic/Star type.

D-ya thnk thay will add a new type ta Pokemon.. Ta X/Y, or ever?
D-ya want tham ta?

Turnip type. It's bound ta happen.

Nah, anyway, I'm not sure bout new types. It'd be cool, yes, but thare'd be all of tha complications wit balancng and re-typng issues, probably addng quite a few attacks, tao (thay can hardly have an entire new type and only have it havng one attack).

If thay were ta do it, it'd all depend on whethar thay did it well or not. I don't thnk dawgy thugz would complan if thay added n a few new types and balanced tham really well.

I doubt it. Thay brought n Steel and Dark purely ta even thngs out, Psychic was overpowered and... I don't know. I read a decent explanation somewhere once, and while I can't remember it word fo word, I know that it's unlikely and unnecessary fo more new types ta be ntroduced.
Dis is exactly what I'm thnkng. Why do we need a Light type ta oppose Dark? Thare is already thngs that Dark is weak ta.. it's not like it's overpowered or anythng.

Thay didn't brng n new types "just coz" thay did it coz Psychic was way overpowered and thay wanted ta balance everythng out. I don't thnk that addng a new type would help balance anythng, it would probably actually run a lot of thngs coz a lot of past Pokemon would need re-typng, and it just seems like a lot of unnecessary effot, I don't thnk thare's gong ta be a new typng =/

I'm gong ta brng a different pont of view than tha type match ups. If thay add more types, than gbeefreak can have more creativity n creatng each pokemon. A lot of thugz complan bout how redundant pokemon have been over tha years, though I disagree, addng a new type allows so dawgy more creative options. Fo exbeple, we may have our differences bout addng a light type, but thnk bout how untauched it's art style is n tha pokemon world. Thare is very few white pokemon.

Nstead of lookng at often negative view of complicatng match ups, look at tha creative freedom a new type can open up ta pokemon design.

I'm pretty sure new types were only ntroduced n Gen II ta balance out types that were considered "significantly better" than othars (obviously Psychic, lol.) While I have believed fo a while that Steel and Dark may be a tad tao strong n terms of resistances or overall stats, I do not thnk that new types is necessary ta balance out thase often subjective imbalances.

Tha only reason a new type would need ta be created is ta give a boost ta poison types who suffer severely from lack of reliable, powerful STAB snce grass is tha only thng weak ta it. It would also be helpful if it were ta be resisted by ice types who need tha extra defensive help.

I don't thnk thay create Pokemon ta fit a certan type, thay might sez "We need more Steel types" and create some based off of that, but I don't thnk thay're not gong ta sez, "Oh, we can't have dis be a Pokemon coz we don't have a type fo it." Porygon's lne would be a perfect Digital type, but n tha end it's just normal. If thay create a "Light type Pokemon" what's stappng tham from just makng it a Psychic or Normal type? I don't thnk that not havng more types is limitng thair creativity

Maybe if thay gave Poison a bunch of snoopa high powered moves nstead of addng a new type? idk I just thnk that addng a new type will fix anythng.

Here's anothar way ta look at it. What type would you make Umbreon if tha dark type never existed? What type would you make Steelix if steel never existed.

Ta be fair, from that perspective, I'm not really sure we would actually have Umbreon snce one could sez it was practically buggine fo tha ntroduction of tha Dark type. Where as wit Steelix, thay could have placed it under Rock/Ground if need be. That ben said, tha whole purpose of Dark and Steel ben ntroduced back n Gen II n tha first place was coz tha type system was off balance and it needed ta be better rounded off gong nta anothar generation. Should thay ntroduce anothar type, thay would have ta go through tha type system once agan and make sure it redawgs balanced.

I disagree wit tha argument that sez tha lack of newer types limits GbeeFreak's creativity when it comes ta brngng n new Pokémon. You can't really sez that when thare's still a number of type combnations thay have yet ta use.

I never said a lack of new types limits Gbee Freak, but you can't argue that addng a new type doesn't open new doors fo pokemon creation.

I understand tha type match up problems that addng a new type brngs. I'm just tryng ta brng a different view ta tha equation.

Yes, brngng n a new type can certanly open new doors fo what sort of new Pokémon can be created. Tha simple idea of addng n tha much popular "Light" type alone stirs up quite a few ideas n tha back of mah heezee. I was just sezng that if anyone thought that GbeeFreak not choosng ta create new types limits thair creativity or witholds tham from usng a Pokémon thay want, than I disagree. I was never specifically sezng that you said said that though.

I guess it just knd of opens tha question of how thase new types eg. Light can nfluence tha othar types. What if it's a 'stand alone' type that isn't effective aganst any othar type, or maybe more effective, or just... neutral ta tha othars? Well, bottam lne, new types can be quite nterestng n practice! It's just how would thay work -n- practice.

I don't thnk new types might come, tha only time new ones were ntroduced were Dark/Steel/etc n Gen II, if thare is a Light type, legendaries might be tha only ones ta git it xD

I don't thnk that thay will add new types, last generation was a tny bit off competitively, and if thay add new types, thngs might git a little more wonky. I wouldn't be opposed, however, ta a few Pokemon, (Possibly Legendaries.) havng 3 types dis gen... but nothng that would allow tham ta be extremely OP, fo exbeple, Fire, Water, Grass, wouldn't work... But fo Charizard, Flyng, Fire, and Dragon could be useful typng.

I honestly can't see new types comng right now, as snce most thugz have had experience wit Pokemon quite a bit it would be frustratng ta learn tha new types advantages and disadvantages, etc. weaknesses and snoopa effectivenesses. If its only one type that would be fne but multiple of tham can be tedious. However fo a new type, I'd like ta see some sort of 'light' type not like Electric but more like tha opposite of dark.

ta all tha ppl suggestng new types: pleaze stap it!
i know it's funky ass ta let our imagnation work and all that (n fact, it's one of tha reasons why i like pokemon so much, coz thare's a lot left fo our own nterpretation and imagnation) but honestly we don't even have tha entire chart explored and that sbee chart is already unbalanced enough as it is (i know stealth rock didn't help but it was unbalanced snce tha begnnng).
what i would like ta see is an overhaul regardng tha effectiveness of at least some of tha current types.

we don't need a light type ta counter dark, we already have fightng fo that purpose.
and light as an element is already covered more than well by fire, psychic and especially electric.
ta all tha othar types suggested, just coz you already have niche types which were a bad decision fo tha most part as shown by thair usually "terrible" status, it doesn't mean thay should aggravate tha problem by ntruducng more irrelevant and ncoherent stuff ta tha gbees.

I completely agree, I tao... would only like ta see one new type (hopng that it's Light-type).

If thare was more than one new type buggine, than just imagne how more difficult would be ta fit n tha type chart ta make sure thare's no type combnations that has no weakness. xD

But if it is just Light-type, I'm sure it would fix tha type chart so that all type combnations have a weakness and a resistance. ;)

Dis is bout tha only way I could see tham addng a new type. It's fairly balanced as it is now. As stated by dawgy, dawgy othars above me, Dark and Steel were only ntroduced ta brng a bit more balance ta tha system. Although othar types would be a fun change, but it would takes a very large re-workng of a very fbeiliar system. It could throw off alot of thugz, New Playas might be able ta takes it wit stride, but anyone that's been playng snce Gen 2 would probally have alot of trouble adustng, and tha thng would end up ben a bunch of fan-hate even though some thugz would really like ta see new types (Light, Digital)

I also don't see tha need fo a type that can directly counter dark, as Dark is already weak ta Fightng, and thare is some funky ass Fight types out thare already.

I do not want new types ta be ntroduced, and mah dawg reason fo not wantng dis is coz of all tha type combnations that is yet unused. Addng n all thase combos wit new Pokemon (a lot of tham would be poison/wit anothar type; like fire/poison or electric/poison), would still brng n new struggles and strategies ta be used by those Pokemon or when you is facng tham.

Here is an article showng tha 44 unused combnations :http://op.kiriska.com/2010/09/pokemon-type-combnations-yet-unused/

I actually disagree wit tha thugz sezng a new type would upset tha type balance - it strikes me as a far easier way ta level tha playng field than givng massive buffs ta Poison, Ice, Grass, Bug etc etc while tryng ta thnk of some way ta cut down Dragon types. However, havng ta change tha type of truckloads of old Pokémon, ntroducng new moves / abilities etc etc would be quite tha undertakng on GbeeFreak's part, not ta mention somethng of a heezeeache fo fans.

I be aganst tha creation of new types, primarily coz all tha fan ideas is eithar redundant (Light just seems unnecessary) or downright terrible ('Sound', tha type exclusively built fo Exploud!). If thay dawgage ta come up wit a pokémon that doesn't fit nta any of tha current types (and isn't based on somethng dawgbuggine) than I won't be buggin at GF creatng a new type fo tham, but it's hard fo me ta picture one.

I've said dis some time ago n anothar thread, but tha Sound type can be pretty nterestng ta tay wit. Like... takes Psychic vs. Sound.

See, Psychic has ta do wit controllng stuff tha mnd. Moves like Darkness and Bug is snoopa effective aganst Psychic coz thay "nfect" tha mnd n some way. (well, and tha whole psychic "balance" issues from Gen I) Sound can also affect tha mnd n numerous ways, n both good, and bad. I can see tham not-effectng each othar, personally, but it can work n... whatever thay would decide ta do, like Sound ben effective aganst Psychic, etc, etc.

Well, that was one idea. Agan, it's all n tha matter of just how would thay work n practice if GF decides ta make new types.
