The idea of an ice bug sounds really adorable. But a frozen, well, half-frozen bug just sounds so cute. Not necessarily strong, maybe a special attacker, but I imagine it as like a frozen Ladybug or something. :3

Ice/Poison sounds extremely badass, tho.

Can I just say, there's no need to point someone out every time they list a type that has been used. There have been quite a few type combos conceived that have only been used once or twice. I too would love to see an Electric/Fire type Pokemon. It doesn't matter that we've already had that type combo with Heat Rotom (especially considering Rotom can change its secondary type).
It's jut that it's called "new" type combinations, so from that we figure we are discussing new stuff we'd like to see, rather than just type combinations you wanna see. :)

I know, but if the type combos have only been used once or twice, I think it's still fair to say that that type combo is relatively "new", or at least uncommon (also Rotom is a special Pokemon so I don't count any of its type combos to have been "used" properly ).

Bug/Ice would be an awesome type combo. I imagine it to be more of a huge ice bug with a Beartic like pose. Now that would be badass.

We might see an electric/ground this generation, some things to possibly watch out for is Fire/Poison(I don't know why they didn't make Skuntank this, especially since it learns flamethrower or something), Poison/electric, and basically Poison/any other type. As much as Poison-type by itself kind of sucks, I'd like for the type itself to be given some sort of life, along with bug-types having new type combinations as well, several of which have already been mentioned in this thread what with Bug/Ice, etc.

Ice/Poison would be best, because they are my favorite types. Maybe it could be inspired by an oil-spill. An arctic wolf/fox/rabbit would be good inspiration for this type.
Psychic/Electric would be awesome as well. I can't really think of any designs that would go good with it though. Maybe a feline design.

I love poison types and I am angry that most of them are either dueled with Grass or Bug or are a single type.

Skuntank can learn flamethrower because it's inspiration was farts. It's stupid, I know. But that's the only rationalization I can come up with. It's a skunk (smelly) and it's cry sounds like a fart. So, fartflames.

Oh, and is it possible that we can have a Fire/ground that is not Camerupt and doesn't really suck? u_u Maybe that's just a bad-type combo, but still. /personal issues.

Or possibly Fire/Ice? I mean, at least pair ice with something that doesn't suck? I mean, with Froslass, I suppose Ice/Ghost was a start...

I'd also love to see them introduce a Grass/Electric, Fire/Electric and Ice/Electric-type other than those Rotom forms. They're forms, so they don't count.

And I do like the idea of an Ice/Fighting-type. Ice needs a bit more love. Electric/Fighting would be cool too, as well as Dark/Electric like what Urugamosu said.

In fact, the Shinx line were often mistaken for Dark/Electric-types despite being pure Electric.

Speaking of other type combos involving Ice and Electric, I'd like to see an Ice/Steel or Rock/Electric as well.

Oh! Jumping on that point, I'd love for there to be more diversity within rock-types! What bothers me is that the most common thing to be associated with rock is either flying, water, or ground, and I'd like for things to change up a bit. I mean, Rock/Fire(not Magcargo), Rock/Ice, Rock/Fighting, that kinda stuff~

Not sure how this'd work out given bugs are normally really timid and it turns out to be a gigantic dragon unless its like a dragonfly but idk how else it'd be viable :(

There's Fire/Ghost, Water/Ghost so I'd like a Grass/Ghost, I want something similar to Chandelure and Jellicent basically but Grass.

I'd like there to be type combinations with more normal type pokemon, aside from the traditional Flying/Normal dual types tbh. D= Like, it'd be suuuuper cool if there was a Fire/Normal type, as well as a normal/poison type, or a normal/ghost type. Well, it'd be super weird on how that can work, but, I can dream!

Ohh I'd love a bug/dragon type too. :3 That'd be awesome~ <3 I was surprised how there was a bug/fire type in Gen 5, so I hope that they'll make cool bug combinations for this gen. Oh and more ghost and poison type combinations; they need more love too~

It just occurred to me that we actually don't have an Ice/Steel type yet. I'd love to see a Pokémon with that kind of type combo. I imagine its defenses would be pretty good too, because if I recall, I don't think many ice-types have very good defense or special defense stats. At least not anything to really write home about.

A Grass/Ghost is another type combination I'd like to see as well as a Water/Fire type. The latter being something similar to an unstable molecule Pokémon. It kind of fits the theme of DNA in a way too.

Ohhh unstable molecules, or mutated DNA is a cool idea; yeah, there can be pokemon that have dual types that conflict with each other like what you've said with Fire/Water, and maybe Flying/Ground, or even Psychic/Dark.

Yes Bug/Fire would be an excting combo but it will make both rock and fire to be 4* super effective on it!

I was thinking of having Steel/Ice, but that makes isn't really good typing, since it is really weak to both fire and fighting, so yeah.
A Ghost/Grass type is also viable, I guess.
There could also possibly be an Electric/Fighting. Not that bad typing, with only 2 weaknesses, I think.

An electric/fight would be cool... A complete offensive pckage as electric types usually specialise in sp att and fighting types in attacks

Obviously it isn't a dual-type, but I'd love if we finally got some more pure Flying types (rather than just Tornadus).

I'd also love to see some more Electric and more Ice dual-types, as I haven't really been happy with many of them. Ice/Fire, Ice/Poison, Ice/Steel, Electric/Dark, Electric/Rock and Electric/Ice (besides Freeze Rotom) are just some unused combinations off the top of my head.

I would like to see that. It would also be immune to the otherwise perfect Ghost/Fighting move combo.

The only move that would be super effective against a Normal/Ghost-type would be a Dark-type move. All other moves of different types would be either uneffective or deal less damage.

But that would be great type combination for a new Pokémon in Pokémon X and Y.

I'd like either Fire/Ice or Water/Fire.

Contrasting types are always fun.
