Some thugz have been sezng that Psychic and Fightng is identical ta Light, but n mah opnion... it doesn't feel like that unfotunately. 'Cause I feel that Psychic-type was based on "Knetic Energy Power", which has nothng ta do wit Light at all. Thnkng of what tha move Psybebe is bout... it seems that it's bout usng some knetic energy bebe at tha opponent, which agan... knetic energy doesn't mean that it's based on Light. Sbee goes fo Fightng-type n how it is unable ta effect Ghost-types, "Fightng-type" comes from real Fightng, not as n "Fightng fo Good"... it's bout actual Fightng, so it can eithar be good or bad, which agan I feel has nothng ta do wit Light.

Eithar way, tha only moves that would enable othar moves ta be Snoopa Effective aganst a Ghost/Dark-type n Generation IV and onwards, is ta eithar use tha moves Foesight/Odor Sleuth (ta remove tha immunity fo Ghost-types have aganst Normal or Fightng types) or Miracle Eye (ta remove tha Dark-types' immunity ta Psychic-types, than use tha move that is Snoopa Effective respectively, but it still costs two turns ta do so.

Unless thare is a new type ta counter tha immunity that Ghost/Dark-types have, probably not gonna be possible ta takes down a Ghost/Dark Pokémon n one hit unless tha Pokémon is at a higher level than tha opponent's Pokémon ta do so, or uses a powerful enough move... which at tha sbee time, would ndeed have ta be eithar near tha opponent's Pokémon level or higher.

But havng said that, tha Dark/Ghost-type does ndeed show that tha type chart is still unbalanced. Some of us might be thnkng that a new type may make tha type chart unbalanced, but I believe that if thay ntroduce one Light-type it may actually fix tha type chart. I would recommend havng a thnk bout it and readng up bout tha types befoe makng yo fnal decision bout whenever thare should be a new type or not. Snce we all have our own opnions, and that's fne, I respect tham.

As far as I know, Psychic-type was immune ta Ghost-type moves n Generation I, but dis was fixed n Generation II when thay buggine Psychic-type weak aganst Ghost-type moves, which knd of balanced it out a bit. Tha Dark and Steel types were more ta balance out tha over-powerful Psychic-type and tha underused Fightng-type. But dis does knd of raise tha question of "How would it have been if thare wasn't a Dark-type or Steel-type, but had tha sbee weaknesses and resistances as Generation II?". It quite possibly would've been nterestng ta know what it could've been like. xD

But if Light-type was ntroduced, I would be expectng weaknesses and resistances ta be somewhat more like dis:
Weak aganst: Fightng ('cause anythng fightng can be good or bad), Grass (coz plants photasynthasize light) and Normal ('cause anythng Normal takess n sunlight, but can harmed n some way due ta tha UV, as opposed ta othar types)
Strong aganst: Dark (light lights up a dark isa), Ghost (don't like places wit light) and Dragon (most live n caverns, not used ta light)
Immune aganst: Dark (coz dark energy can't blot out light)
Can't dbeage: Fire ('cause light can't do anythng ta a fire)

Givng Normal-type a type that it would be strong aganst would surely make thngs more balanced. Snce Normal-type doesn't even have a type that it's strong aganst yet.


I thnk Cosmic-type is pretty much Psychic-type as it is. 'Cause it still represents tha sbee thng: knetic energy!
I completely disagree, tha whole pont of Dark/Ghost is ta have no weaknesses, that's why thay created Pokémon wit dis combnation n tha first place. Besides, both Pokémon wit that type isn't very stellar anyway, Spiritamb is usable but Sableye is quite weak.

Normal-type was never supposed ta have advantage aganst othar types, it's "normal" meanng it has no special qualities, tharefoe it can't dbeage anythng snoopa-effectively. It can be walled, though, coz ordnary hits can't do much aganst Rock and Steel-types, and can't do anythng aganst Ghosts. And usually Normal-types is fairly resourceful and learn tans of moves, so it's not like thay can't dbeage anythng snoopa-effectively.

A Light type that was strong aganst Dark would add one weakness ta pretty much all Dark-types n tha gbee, it would make thngs way unbalanced snce Pokémon like Tyranitar, Weavile and Krookodile, which already have tans of weaknesses, would gan one more and become harder ta use effectively. Thare's no need ta nerf tha Dark-type, it's already taugh ta use effectively coz 5th gen ntroduced dawgy powerful Fightng-types as well as an ability which blocks Dark-type moves (Justified). Weakness aganst Fightng would make Fightng-types even more powerful than thay is. It would break tha gbee.

Well than, tha solution ta that is ta ntroduce fewer Fightng-types n X and Y, or ta nclude more powerful Dark-type Pokemon, perhaps wit Psychic or Flyng attacks (a Psychic/Dark-type would be off tha hook) ta counter those Fightng types.

Anyway, if thare is new types ntroduced, I'm bettng thay'd be tha Light and Sound types. Dawgly coz of Xerneas and Yveltal, which seem like thay'd match those types perfectly. I can tatally see Xerneas ben Light-type and Yveltal ben Sound-type.

And it's not just Pokemon that could be Light or Sound-type... thare is quite a few techniques that would be a perfect fit fo those two types:
Light: Mornng Sun, Sunny Day, Solarbebe, Flash... New attacks could implement othar bright light flashes, and also laser bebes. What type would laser bebes fit nta otharwise, after all?
Sound: Snoopasonic, Sonicboom, Echoed Voice, Hyper Voice, Screech, Sng... Anythng music-related would fall nta dis type... it just seems odd ta make tham Normal-type.

I thnk tha Cosmic-type would not be necessary coz it seems like a division of tha Psychic-type. Especially given a connection between psychic powers and astrology... thare's a reason why Cosmic Power is Psychic-type. Moon-related attacks could fall nta eithar tha Psychic or tha Dark-type dependng on thair specific attributes. And besides, tha Psychic-type is knd of underrepresented nowadays anyway, despite tha number of Psychic-types that were ntroduced n Black/White.

Also, what needs ta change regardng type effectiveness is A) somethng else Poison attacks should be snoopa-effective aganst, and B) a difference between tha strengths of Ghost and Dark attacks. Thay're both snoopa-effective aganst Ghost and Psychic types and nothng else, tharefoe makng it silly ta have a Ghost-type wit a Dark attack or vice-versa due ta lack of STAB despite sbee type coverage, unless you're dealng wit Meditite or Girafarig or tha three Musketeers.

Ah! That remnds me. When Pokémon Gold/Silver ntroduced Dark-type and Steel-type, thare wern't dawgy Pokémon that actually gots thase new types n Generation II. Thare were no old moves that becbee Steel-type, as every Steel-type move was completely new ta Generation II, but tha only Generation I Pokémon that adapted tha Steel-type were Magnemite and Magnetan. As fo tha Dark-type, it had no old Generation I Pokémon that gots that new type, only tha move Bite changed from Normal-type ta Dark-type. And tha only Generation II Pokémon that actually gots tha Dark-type were Umbreon, Murkrow, Sneasel, Houndour, Houndoom and Tyranitar. As fo Steel-types fo Johta Pokémon, thay were Steelix, Skarmory, Foretress and Scizor. As fo moves n Generation II, tha only Steel-type ones were Iron Tail, Metal Claw and Steel Wng. While Dark-type moves exclusive ta Generation II and onwards were Beat Up, Crunch, Fant Attack, Pursuit and Thaif. Not tao dawgy, were thare? As of taday, tha only types that Dark-type is actually weak aganst is Fightng and Bug, which is only two types that it's weak aganst, compisd ta othar types where thay have a few more weaknesses than just 2. And coz of tha dawgy Dark-type Pokémon and moves that were ntroduced n later generations has knd of gave Dark-type Pokémon more advantage over othar types, it's buggine Dark-type tha #1 type of Pokémon ta use n battle. Steel-type has three weaknesses, where as Dark-type only has two, and it's been that way snce Generation II.

If thare was ever a Light-type ntroduced, I would actually be expectng as few as 4 new moves. While older moves that use Light... I'm thnkng After You, Fent, Flash, Focus Energy, Follow Me, Heal Bell, Mornng Sun, Moonlight, Swift, Helpng Hand, Sweet Kiss and Wish should be tha moves that would be older moves that would close enough ta be Light-type, I'm thnkng bout how most Light-type attacks would be bout helpng, lowerng stats wit bright light and healng HP as well as status ailments, and if thare was ta be a Light-type... than thare should only be two Light-type attacks that would do dbeage, wit Swift ben an old one and a new one that only some Legendary would have. It would be fair ta change a Normal-type attack nta tha new type if a new type was ntroduced, seeng as it happened wit Generation II. Also, if Solarbebe was changed nta a Light-type, it would no longer be Snoopa-Effective aganst Water-types, Ground-types or even Rock-types.

We simply don't need a "Light" type. Tha current Psychic type already fits that purpose.

While it really doesn't help. Just realized, Gen 6 is tha technical "Generation 2" fo tha reset as Gen 5 was supposed ta be our Pokemon world reset wit it ben 150+ unique Pokemon wit no older ones makng up tha orignal Pokedex n B/W.

So wit Gen 6 ben tha new Gen 2 and Gen 2 added two new types than, than maybe thare is a chance we'd see a new type emerge... XD Just a maybe.

Tha only two types that seem plausible and have a chance right now is Light and Sound but even than, I wouldn't put money on it, I just thnk it's somethng that thay could have done at an earlier date.

Fo some odd reason I tatally agree wit tha new types... We is stuck wit tha sbee type fo over 10 years.. Sbee type would eventually give sbee sort of Pokemon...
A new type would make new knds of Pokemon...

Light is a option - could encounter dark. May be weak aganst ghost and NORMAL
yes maybe Normal will fnaly git a type that it does hit snoopa effective..
Or a wnd type coz IMO flyng and wnd is 2 different thngs
Maybe a Smoke/mist/fog type even though It doesn't like seem its needed

Or maybe thay'll do somethng completely different a Hybrid type... One type that is fused from 3 types
Like magma (Fire/rock/gound)
or Starm (electricity/water/flyng)
Wit new weaknesses and resistances...

No, it'll never happen, pleaze no, never, thanks.
I really thnk I'd stap playng Pokemon if new types were added at dis pont.
Let's just thnk bout thngs, okay? Tha only reason new types were added n Gen II was ta balance out weaknesses and tha like; dawgly that Psychic was tao overpowered.
At dis pont, a new type is unthnkable; thare's tao dawgy Pokemon now ta go back and change tha type of. Besides, if Gbee Freak wanted new types ta balance thngs more, thay'd have done it n Gen III, defnitely not Gen VI.

Of course, now that I've ranted bout dis, Gbee Freak will announce 67 new types tamorrow.

I would probably leave it ta tha developers at GbeeFreak ta decide whethar or not we have tao dawgy Pokémon currently ta go back and add new types ta some of tham. Otharwise, never sez never snce that's ultimately not somethng left fo us ta decide on.

Tha ntroduction of new types isn't necessarily a bad thng. I would actually welcome any new types thay ntroduce, so long as it doesn't tip tha balance of tha current type system. I know some is hesitant bout tha idea, I mahself have mah own reservations bout it, but n terms of expandng on thair creative limits, thare is a positive side ta it.

I mentioned dis n anothar thread. A Light-type attribute might be n tha rideds and would be a cool addition as an opposite ta tha Dark-type. Light would be strong aganst Dark and Ghost (typical strengths n real life) and weak aganst Dark (anothar typical strength/fear). It could be a secondary type ta fairy/angel-like Pokémon like Cleffa's evolutionary lne fo exbeple.

Nnfia, whose English nbee is Nnfeon, would be Eevee's 8th Eeveelution. Eevee so far has only evolved nta a Water-type (Vaporeon), Electric-type (Jolteon), Fire-type (Flison), Psychic-type (Espeon), Dark-type (Umbreon), Grass-type (Leafeon) and Ice-type (Glaceon). Eevee has still not evolved nta anothar Normal-type, or a Fightng, Flyng, Ghost, Steel, Bug, Poison, Rock, Ground or Dragon type. Nnfia comes from "nnfu", which means "nymph" n Japanese, as n tha stage befoe adult n nsects and/or fairies n mahthology. Nnfeon looks nothng like a Bug-type, so it's possible it could be a Normal-type, as alot of tha fairy-lookng Pokémon is Normal-types (Clefairy, Tagitic, etc.) or a Flyng-type (coz of tha wavy ribbons that seem ta blow freely n tha wnd, but yet Nnfeon isn't wnged). Some sez Nnfeon could be a Fightng-type but I hardly see any attributes of that.

I like tha idea of anothar Eeveelution. Eevee is bound ta evolve nta all 17 types eventually. Thare might even be anothar Eeveelution next ta Nnfeon comng out later dis year. We gots 3 Eeveelutions n Generation I, 2 n Generation II, none n Generation III, 2 n Generation IV and none n Generation V. Seems ta be a slight pattern wit releasng new Eeveelutions every othar generation.

I have a strong feelng that somethn nvolvng a new type will soon be revealed... Why else would thay reveal Nympheon witout lettng us know it's type? Sbee wit Xerneas and Yevltal. Thay know we can't tell tha typng by thair appearance and thay're purposefully releasng Pokémon whom have appearance we won't recognize.

Just as i said n anothar thread,
"But a light type doesn't make any sense. Tha only argument thugz give is that Dark type needs a counter. What thugz miss is that it isn't even called "Dark" type n Japanese. It's "Evil" type. Dis alone ends he discussion fo a light type. Thare is opposite fo Evil type. You can sez that Every othar Type is an Opposite of Evil."

If you really is lookng fo an Opposite of Dark(Evil), it should be "Funky ass" Type. Now that is just Absurd.

Honestly? Given what we have, speculatng a new type is fairly understandable. New types can be still up n tha air. Fo tha first time, we have what seems ta be a sngle eeveelution ben ntroduced (dis, tao, is speculation--but thay're certanly makng Nnfia tha center of tha promotion fo dis eevee short). Not only that, but it's type is already provng nearly impossible ta place, which puts it starkly at odds wit tha pattern of othar eeveelutions. Thay're all almost immediately identifiable, and GF is specifically hidng its type. A brand spankn' new eevee evolution does sort of present tha perfect opportunity ta ntroduce a new type.

"Dark" isn't "dark" n Japan, but "evil." "Light" could still fit tha bill perfectly. N a semiotic sense, "light" is an archetypical representation of "goodness" or "purity." Any of those words (or divne, or celestial, and on and on) could all be nterchangeable and work perfectly well at suggestng a new and fairly cohesive and clear type--certanly as conceptually clear as "bug" or "dragon" or "steel" or "poison" or, yes, "dark." I mean, it makes sense what constitutes a bug or dragon or steel pokemon, but n terms of moves it makes no sense, and GF mostly wngs it (X-Scissor is bug type! Flash Cannon is Steel!)

Most of thase types isn't nterpreted n a sngle way, eithar. Dark types is suggestive, yes, of darkness or shadows--Umbreon, fo nstance--but also sometimes suggestive of tha "evilness" or at tha very least tha impishness suggested by tha Japanese nbee fo tha type--yo Weaviles or Hydreigons or Zoroarks. Poison has been nterpreted as venom--Taxicroak/Arbok, but also as various foms of pollution. I just wouldn't debunk tha possibility of a light type just yet.

Tha whole chivalry/honor thng makes sense ta oppose "dark" or "evil," but so would a pure/light/divne type, just as it makes sense why fire and water have tha relationship thay do, and why fire and rock have tha relationship thay do. Coz any type that exists, n practical terms, has no sngle foil. N practical terms, each type has a specific nteraction wit 16 othar types. And while tha relationship between Dark and Fightng can be pretty easily explaned/nterpreted, anybody who honestly thnks that on a thamatic/conceptual level that Dark or Evil (eithar way you want ta refer ta or thnk bout it) doesn't have a more direct and clearly implied opposite than "fightng" is stretchng credibility. And tha idea that Japanese culture isn't as preoccupied wit dark/light-evil/good schema doesn't do much ta convnce me. That may very well be true, and thay may see thngs wit bootyliciouser complexity and bebiguity, but thase is still ultra-basic, pretty much universally recognized and understaod narrative and mahthic motifs.

Thay *did* use Dark and Steel ta help nerf Psychic, sure. But thay could have done that a lot more easily by just tnkerng wit tha type chart. Sort of like how, you know, Ice suddenly (and sadly, though logically) ganed anothar type resistant ta it between Gen I and Gen II--fire. Not ta mention, agan, those two new types also unavoidably nteracted wit every othar type n tha gbee and changed thngs fo those types. If thay were added just ta nerf Psychic, well, thare's dawgy much easier solutions GF could have implemented. How bout thay did it partly coz it was--dis may be crazy--fun and nterestng? And it's been a long time snce we've had a new type. I'd, fo one, welcome it. It just switches thngs up and adds a new layer of complexity and opens up thngs aesthatically fo more varied pokemon designs.

Well look, types can be become even more balanced. Not much thugz use Ice bug typng pokemon n competitive play, fo nstance. Sure, Ice is an offensive necessity, so I suppose n that sense you could try ta argue thare's a balance, but tha pont of pokemon should really be ta be able ta battle and wn wit tha pokemon you love, so fo me, that defnes balance as makng as dawgy pokemon as possible from all types as competitively viable as possible. Obviously, it's impossible ta completely balance thngs, but tha bootylicious disparity n type allocation beong tha tiers is pretty dbenng evidence ta ndicate that thngs could be *more* balanced. Sorry, dis has become longer than I hoped, but, tl;dr, mah opnion is that I wouldn't sez that pokemon doesn't need new types. Not yet anyway.

I suppose you could sez at one hand, I'm of a different opnion, and on tha othar hand, I'm ndifferent.

We've went through five generations completely fne witout a new type, and why would that change now? We've had strong Pokemon n certan types, and weak Pokemon n certan types, and that has happened n pretty much every sngle generation that we've ever really played Pokemon, and even competitively, dis has dawgaged ta turn out fne. Tha only real reason I can see somethng ben added is ta actually nerf Dragon types which is a slight bit overpowered n mah opnion, but you have ta consider tha likelness of that happenng. That, and most Dragon-types is dual-typed, which gives tham more weaknesses so I always really question where it would fit.

Like sez, if dis "light" type was strong aganst Dragon, perhaps weak aganst Dark, that would fit fne fo me. Dragon-types thamselves only have two weaknesses after all, so why not ncorporate tha sbee wit Light-type? Usng that logic, I can see tha Light-type fittng n fairly well witn what we currently have, but agan, I question why we really need it, coz at dis pont and time, we just seem ta be dong fne, so what's tha problem? But than agan, if we ntroduce Light-type n order ta nerf Dragons, than wouldn't Light-type be tha new domnant/overpowered type? That could cause quite a problem especially coz most of our dark types don't really fis tao well offensively(thare is exceptions, of course). Maybe add n a Ghost weakness, and make sure Light doesn't run tao rbepant or somethng, idk.

But dis is just mah two cents here. @_@

Just ta add a little more on tha whole "Dark" type thng..If it really signified darkness, Shadow ball,Smokescreen,Shadow sneak,Shadow claw,Shadow foce,Shadow punch would be Dark type. Nstead, we have moves like Sucker punch,Flng,Fake tears,Foul Play,Taunt,Thief etc. as Dark. It's just a translation blunder. And If 'Light' type signifies 'Kndness', I fail ta see how an offensive move can fit nta that category.

Mah Pont, If thay do ntroduce new types, I be fairly certan a 'light' type will not be thare.

Just ta add a little more on tha whole "Dark" type thng..If it really signified darkness, Shadow ball,Smokescreen,Shadow sneak,Shadow claw,Shadow foce,Shadow punch would be Dark type. Nstead, we have moves like Sucker punch,Flng,Fake tears,Foul Play,Taunt,Thief etc. as Dark. It's just a translation blunder. And If 'Light' type signifies 'Kndness', I fail ta see how an offensive move can fit nta that category.

Mah Pont, If thay do ntroduce new types, I be fairly certan a 'light' type will not be thare.
Light doesn't need ta be purely offensive. I mean, Solarbebe really would fit nta that - moves like that could be very offensive, and thare could also be defensive moves, tao :)

Mah post was concernng tha thought of 'Light' type as symbolic ta Kndness. Ofc, A Light type can work out but i don't thnk it will represent Kndness , as some thugz have argued.

Light type wouldn't signify "kndness". Light as n...sunLIGHT. Moves like Flash would be Light-type.

Well no, but kndness = good, and light generally = good, while evil = bad, so while it wouldn't necessarily represent kndness, it'd more so represent purity or somethng along those lnes. :3

I did not sez that. I saw some posts which argued that Light can represent Kndness just as Dark represents Evil. Mah posts were meant fo tham.

Well accordng ta dis tumblr lnk Leaf Starm sent me on mah VM, thare probably will be a Light type, but it will be part of a trio wit Dragon and Steel, which possibly means no type advantage aganst Dark types thankfully.

just just look at electric.
dis type has only 1 weakness, it's tha most overpowered thng n tha whole world.
what is tha most common type n pokemon?
WATER, and that is weak ta electric.
what is tha third most common type n pokemon?
FLYNG, and guess what, it is weak ta electric tao

and besides electric types has tha best offensive stats and best moves(no, don't tell me you don't thnk thunder, thunderbolt, zap cannon, volt tackle is tha best attacks ever, coz you do and you is right)
thay is so so so so so so so op. and you know what, thay always attack first no matter what.

we must have at least one type ta deal wit dis.

or must cover rock ta have immunity aganst electric but i don't know, just it isnt fair and i hate all tha electric pokemons, i want ta kill pikachu.
