Pardon my stupidity for a moment, but don't we have one of them already? I can't remember it's name or anything... but if they do have one, I'm pretty certain it cannot Swim at all :/

Though the idea itself doesn't look bad. No doubt GF would troll once again and not make it's second type water.

There's um...Torkoal, and Sunny-version Castform?

Cryogonal does turn into steam when the temperature is high.

How about adding an evolution to it like
  • Cryogonal + Level Up in Desert ----> some amazing Fire/Water steam thing! :D
...Okay, that sounds torturous. ;~;

Steam would be pretty cool, reminds me of scald a little. Though I don't really know how they'd design that other than something similar to Cryogonal (did I spell that right?)

Nono, that sounds completely terrible, it would hurt poor Cryogonal too much. :( Make an ice/rock variant found in Wellspring Cave, tbh.

@ Toujours - But Torkoal is slow as heck. The only decent thing about that was that it was near enough impossible to beat back in the Ruby days. I can't be the only one who suffered multiple Paralysis due to Body slam spam, and multiple defeats due to Overheat wiping out my entire team

@ Forever - and give it a 4x weakness to steel? Are you cruel or just plain sadistic to suggest such a henious suggestion? :p

I always wanted Glalie to be Ice/Rock. Steel-type moves don't appear often anyways. ;P

Pfft, fine, ground/ice, BUT ROCK WOULD LOOK MORE REALISTIC. Actually x4 steel weakness isn't that bad unless there's Scizor's around. :x

Forget Scizor, a good old pokémon like Nidoking that knows Iron Tail would be the least of your worries.

From the looks of it, we're trying to give Glalie a second typing.

No, I don't get it either :/

I want to bring up something. Why can't they come up with a Fighting/Flying type or a Ground/Fighting. And the person who made a hack version of B/W (BlazeBlack/Volt White) made Luxio and Luxray Electric/Dark type. Come to think of it, they SHOULD be Electric/Dark, wouldn't anyone agree?

>< My bad for steering off-topic like that, I was eager to give my Glalie opinion, lol.

And I do agree that Luxray should totally be Electric/Dark, that would be freaking awesome! ^^

They had plenty of new type combos this gen, so I don't see much of an issue considering they probably have many more generations to go. I always though Darkrai struck me as a Ghost but it is what it is.

As far as Glalie it's typing is fine as is, if anything I'd make it Ice/Dark(since it has dark colors that contrast it's iciness. And then the shiny version makes it look even more evil with the red eyes.) Or the composition of it may be a little Rock or Ground.

Well there's a lot of type combinations that don't exist yet but there's also gonna be more gens so I mean, we might see them later on, or not, it doesn't really matter either way. And I don't think Pokémon should be dark type only because they are dark coloured. Luxray looks dark but his concept isn't really, it's about the concept mostly, not the colours.

Have you seen Luxray Lv X?



I look at that and it practically screams darkness to me.

Haha I do agree that Houndoom is very dark but my stance still remains the same for Luxray. To each their own I suppose.

Edit: No offence taken :p

I hated facing against that card back in the day.

I concur just cause a body color constrasts with a general typing color it shouldn't necessairly be that type. Like for instance all Yellow Pokemon don't need to be predominately Yellow even though there are a lot of yellow colored electric types. Whereas with the case of Houndoom the name of it's species is Dark Pokemon, and the horns and tail are very indicative of that.

Exactly, Houndoom's concept is a hellhound, Tyranitar's concept is a tyrant wreaking havoc in the mountains or something, all those things are dark natured. Dark type is my favourite type btw, together with bug.

Conceptually I will agree with you. But just look at that cold, murderous stare Luxray has in that card.

I can see it too. However, I do see another thing... off-modelness. :x Maybe I'm just not used to TCG art.
