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

Contrasting types are always fun.
Maybe even possible this time with DNA and genetics being a likely theme.

A Normal/Ghost type would be an interesting concept. Perhaps based off of the undead.

That's not really a dual typing... it's just one normal type. XD; If anything it'd probably be more fighting weak, idk.

Normal/Ghost is still weak to Dark types, bro.

I've love to see Fire/Poison. We see a lot of fire types learning Smog for obvious reasons but some of them even learn Sludge bomb!

in fact i always thaught koffing and weezing would be a great fire/poison type since they are based on gas and we all know the contraction between fire and gas

If the fire starter evolves into a fire/fighting, I will puke. I was really hoping Emboar was going to be a Fire/ground, but 3 generations of fire/fighting is enough! Fire needs more love!

Also, I'm hoping for a fire/grass, water/fire ect. Things that should technically kill themselves with their type combo. (I adore water/electric)

I'm pretty sure back in the earlier days I thought there was fire/poison :( But yeah in general it'd be a strong typing - probably defensive. Actually, it'd be more interesting if it was a fast offensive mon, I mean, if they were to go offensive with the first Pokemon of that typing, it'd have useful STABs and if it had a high speed it could take out ground/psychic easier.

Fire/Grass. I've wanted this type since the third generation, and it'd just be a really cool combination from what I can picture aesthetically. Plus it's only weak to Poison, Flying, and Rock, so that's pretty awesome.

Grass/Steel is something that I'd love to see. Only serious weakness is to fire and fighting, everything else(bug, poison, flying), is pretty either resisted or causes neutral damage at worst~!

Whoops, I forgot about Ferrothorn, but maybe something more on the offensive side, I guess. XD;

There are so many things they haven't tried out yet.
I've been wanting for an Electric/Fighting type since Gen 3, hope we get one this time.
Electric in general has very little combinations, they should work on that in general.
Also a Psychic/Dark or a Fire/Psychic or Fire/Steel that's not a legendary would be great
Aaaan i almost forgot, please make a Fighting/Flying too!!

I'd like more electric/ground Pokemon. I mean, there has to be more than Stunfisk, really. It's a very interesting Pokemon but....yeah. >.>

Also, Dragon/Steel as well as Poison/Steel. I realize that Dialga shares the former, but there needs to be a regular Pokemon that shares this also. And a Poison/Steel Pokemon would just be plain flat-out awesome, though the type would be awkward as far as competitive goes (I'd imagine that it would be more defensive than offensive). It's weak to only Fire and Ground, so maybe it'd be pretty useful. :3

I'd love to see more Ghost dual-types. All we really have is Ghost single types for the most part, outside of the Litwick, Frillish, Golett, and Gastly lines, and the Ghost/Dark Sabeleye and Spiritomb. I'd love to see a Grass/Ghost haunting a forest, or maybe Steel/Ghost haunting an abandoned skyscraper or power plant or something.

This!! and more Dual-typed normals, too. Having Meloetta as both normal and psychic/fighting was definitely a step in the right direction, I want to know what else GF could possibly make. :3

I almost feel like being matched with Normal types is almost odd. It's just meant to be normal, not some other typing. It fits well with the Flying type because they're honestly rather ordinary and more natural types. I don't know, maybe it's just me.

I agree, i think besides the Normal/Flying combo, all other normal types should be just that, Normal...
Especially Meloetta shouldn't be part normal imo, i mean, what's ordinary or normal about her?

I'm okay with normal/flying, but yeah, more pure flying types would shake up the games more. Plus the designs for a pure flying type other than Tornadus and possibly Sylveon would be awesome because it doesn't need to "look" normal.

I'd like to see some more pure flying types too. It's just weird not to have the Normal typing with it, since birds in general look rather normal when compared to other types.

Hmmm other than that I think we need more different psychic type (like Slowbro, etc - combinations of psychic types!) Like there's not enough in the lower tiers imo and there should be more. :(

I totally agree, and i think psychic needs some more type combos too. i really didn't like the psychic types introduced in Gen5, any of them, hope they'll create some cooler ones for the new games. I'd also like to see more Ice types, they always create so little of them and never have any original type combos...

We already had Kyurem last generation though, and I'm not sure they're going to immediately repeat that brand new typing again. I definitely am not opposed to more part Ice types though. Maybe even Ice/Fire spread throughout the region!

I agree, especially since it feels they are making all possible Dragon/x combos into legendaries since DPPt, besides having a Pseudo Dragon/Dark that is. Fire/Ice Pokemon of course would be an odd combo, but i'd love to see it happen!

Fire/ice makes sense, though, like when it gets so cold it feels hot/burns you. If it's found in an ice cave it'd be p logical, too!
