Light type would be the best choice right now....

I'm really waiting for an Ice/Light Pokemon!

Light seems like the only possible new type, seeing as there is already a 'Dark' type. I wouldn't mind the introduction of a light type, but I really can't see any other possible typing being introduced this late in the franchise. I am looking forward to some new typing combinations however, such as a Dragon/Grass.

'Dark' type is actually a misnomer. The japanese word for the type is 'Evil' type. 'Dark' represents Evil rather than Darkness. Since, there is no Darkness type, a Light type isn't actually needed. They may Make it but it will not be because of Dark(Evil) Type.

I would love to see a Light type personally because it will finally give Grass Type a worthy competitive edge in battles.

Think about it. Since plants absorb light, Grass types will be strong against Light types!

I don't really want there to be a mew type but if there were Sylveon would definitely be the forerunner for it I think.

As for the techniques a light type would use, I can't help but have Flash come to mind first

I think a Light type could be plausible. I am really surprised that they didn't include one earlier.

I think it would be interesting if they included some kind of new type. It would change things up a bit.

I know that was a typo but that's actually interesting... what if the catch was that there's a new type, but that it only affected Pokemon like Mew/Mewtwo/Mewthree, and had no difference in super effective attacks (so it'd affect nothing and nothing would hit them super effectively)?

You mean, kind of like Normal-type currently (in regards to type weaknesses)? o.o

I think it would be awesome to have a extremely rare type called Light or Holy. Strong against Dragon and Dark (the book of Revelation) and weak against nothing. Of coure, you would have to beat the game before you gain access to them because otherwise it would be too easy to dominate the game with.

Incorporating religion in Pokemon? Nope.

If Light is included, its would only have an attachment to Dark because "Good beats evil". Nothing more. Light could also be super-effective to Ghost types since ghosts are normally seen in bright light and cnadles are used to ward off spirits.

I'm sure it's been said a billion times, but in Japanese it's not "dark" it's "fighting dirty". Which is why fighting is super effective against dark types, because the honorable way is better than the cheap way.

If there were a new type then I don't think it would be "light".

Nah, I really think it will be a light type many people already speculated it to be the new type but we will never know until we see it.

i think that if a new type is introduced it should be a sound type, there are already some pokemon who could fit this type and alot of moves that could(or even should) be a sound type

thats okay, i can see your point

well in the battle palace in emerled you couldn't control your pokemons and tell them what to do because the water blocked the sound in the room, so water could have resistence to sound, and even rock or steel because its like a wall that block the sound.
it can be super effective against ghost(like in some movies that you use sound waves to track ghost) and against psychic, because psychic power its something from your brain and the sound interrupt you to think well.

New types seem unnecessary, Ithink new type combinations will be good enough

Pretty much this. My feelings about new types is this: Do we really need a new type to balance things out, or do we just want a new type for the sake of wanting one? I really feel like it's the latter, mostly because the current set of types is balanced enough as it is, and adding any additional types, I feel, would make it unbalanced again to some sort of extent. .__.

Probably been stated like a billion times, but the Fighting type is supposed to be the "good" type to conquer "evil" (dark). A light type would be redundant.

I'm just not too fond of the idea of a Sound type, either. It feels more like something that would fit between normal and psychic, and while this may be years and years of Pokemon conditioning, Sound just doesn't sound as sensible as an element (which is kind of invalid, since Fighting is totally an elemental force).

I like the types we have now, tbh. For me it would be enough if they only added new type combos.

i think it's possible, but not likely, cuz it would be such a mess!! theyd have to retype all the pokemon, the moves, and the anime and movies cant be undone. there would likely be changes to the tcg too. compatibility between the games, too, would be affected. there are just so many things that would change if they do introduce a new type. but still, it's possible, and i know GF can handle all these :)

The only thing I wish to see regarding types is:
Removing Steel's immunity to poison attacks but keep it immune to poison status.

They wouldn't have to retype anything actually. Everything in the past can remain as they were and move on from that point forward.

Yeah and with that in mind they'd have to create new types that can't fit into anything else we have, otherwise that'd involve retyping, which is something that could become extremely confusing...

But why? It wouldn't really make sense if you can utilize poison attacks towards something and not poison it (the exception being poison type themselves).

You bring up a good point there, though knowing GF, this probably wouldn't be such a huge concern. :x There's still plenty of room for more types that could fit that don't really have anything to do with what we already have, it's just whether or not they feel like adding those types and whether it's necessary to add them at this point in time.

Because I think a Steel Pokémon should be immune to Poison status since it's steel. But it should still take damage from Poison attacks, shouldn't Acid/Acid Spray work to melt Steel? I just hate how Steel made Poison even more nerfed. :/ But then, seeing how GF stupidly made Toxic learnable by almost every damn specie... I don't know u_u

Anyway, this stupid Sylveon is probably a new type... -__- So I'm starting to believe a new type will be introduced... I just hope they won't add 2 new types or more. ._.
Well, it's kinda obvious, but I also think this Generation will have to do with genes and DNA...: X Pokémon, Y Pokémon, an introduction of a new Eeveelution (Eevee is know for its particularly unique DNA) and the next movies is mainly about Genesects (who had their genes modified) a new Mewtwo (most probably another DNA modification...)
So, if there is a new type, chances is it will have some connection with DNA... Can't wait to see...
