Thus far Normal has been paired with Psychic, Flying (the most common), Grass, and Water... that's only four types, or five if one counts Fighting (Meloetta's other forme)...yup it could use some more diversity.

Yeah, there's not much love for the Normal-types out there, sadly. :(

Also, as much diversity as the Steel-type gets, isn't it surprising that we haven't had our first Dragon/Steel yet (as far as I know, anyway)? With only two weaknesses (Ground and Fighting), I can imagine it being actually quite a bit formidable. Adding on to the fact that the Steel-typing can give a boost in defenses and the Dragon-typing giving a boost in offenses, and this thing could be quite dangerous~! I'd imagine the only downside is the speed though, since it'd be pretty slow (as is typical of Steel-types).

The legendary Pokemon from Pokemon Diamond, Dialga, has the unique Steel/Dragon typing.

Although I am assuming that you were talking about wanting a non-legendary Steel/Dragon.

It kinda makes sense that Normal type Pokemon are usually mono-type. Since they're normal.

I kind of disagree with this. I firmly believe that there should be more type diversity, even if they don't make the best of sense competitively. So something like Normal/Fighting (in Meloetta's case) might not be the most beneficial type ever, but it's very unique, and I think that's what kinda gives it it's niche, really. :3

If anything, I think normal/ground would be the worst typing, purely because Fighting-type weak :( Soo if there's a new normal/ground Pokemon I'd probably not use it. Hopefully there's better normal/something-else mons.

Flying/Fighting is one of the combinations we really need.
EDIT: It should be a special attacker for highly damaging aura sphere/focus blast/Air slash/... :D

A Normal/Ground seems rather bland in my opinion. A Normal/Ghost, however...

Flying/Fighting has been long overdue ever since Staraptor should have obtained that typing back in Gen IV. I'd like to finally see it happen this time around with a new Pokémon.

I had a strange dream last night. I was dreaming of pokemon x and y (who wouldn't) and I saw Rehishim with three bars over it head. One said dragon, one said fire and the last one said Attack. I also saw a Lucario with its back to me, again with three bars over it head. I knew one said steel and the other fighting but again it had a strange one saying SpAttack.

I don't know if it was sub-consious thoughts or wishes. The chance of that happening would be zero.

I would also like to see another physic and fighting type (as long as it doesn't look muscular).

I agree with Shivi here. What happened to the Fighting/Flying type? I suppose Staraptor didn't get it for the sake of being one of those typical early game bird Pokemon that you usually find, but still! Wouldn't hurt for at least Staraptor itself to have Flying/Fighting, despite the weaknesses (it only really eliminates rock as a weakness, but hey, it has a lot more STAB now).

Also, as an interesting thought, what about pairing one of the "weakest" types with one of the strongest? Bug/Dragon, I mean. I'd like to see how this would go, but I have a feeling they would both really hurt each other in the long run, probably....

Though I think it would be the first Dragon with Quiver/Dragon Dance, if anything.

I see a Bug/Dragon as being centipede like...almost like Giratina's Origin forme but more bug like.

idk, I'd imagine it as being kind of like Kingdra in design though, so kind of like a sea fish, but dragon-y, and found in swamps? I mean it doesn't have to be water to be found in swamps :x

What I want in Gen VI is a Water/Electric Pokemon. The only one that's been released is Chinchou/Lanturn, and I think that was really underdone. I see Water/Electric as the perfect opportunity for a storm-like pokemon, unrelative to Thundurus/Tornadus. It's kind of hard to imagine a poke like this without making it seem like a flying type, but I feel its just something to think about.

I should mention on whether or not Dugtrio should get an evolution, so it'll look more creative than just three Digletts much like what they did with Magneton, but it's been pretty-well stated that the Diglett line are only native to the Kanto region, not counting the Sinnoh region of course.

Well Sinnoh can be close of Kanto.

Rotom-W is Electric/Water as well.

I'm just a little crazy sometimes.
OK, a lot crazy all the time.

My romhacks and Essentials games are on hold until Essentials is updated.

I'd be all for another Water/Electric. Although Lanturn is one of my favorites, I'd like to see the type combination be utilized more!

A shrimp would be a perfect fit for another Water/Electric type, since I can easily imagine its antennas spark electricity.

Another type combination I'd like to see utilized more is Ice/Electric. Not counting Rotom-F, there's really no other Pokemon like this, and I want to see the ultimate potential of this typing.

I agree with Ice/Electric.~
The potential there for awesome mons is very clear, especially if it's high speed like I'd expect.

One type combination I've been thinking of thats never been tried before....what about Poison/Psychic? It's kind of interesting actually, because these are two types that seems to be conflicting with each other (or am I wrong in this? One is supereffective against the other, after all). So I'd imagine that the Attack and Special Attack within the Pokemon with this typing would be around the same, since I imagine Poison to be more physical, and Psychic to be more special. o.o

So in a sense, this Pokemon could pull of being a mixed attacker well with this typing, though there are worries about weaknesses such as Ghost/Ground (assuming Levitate isn't in effect)/Dark. That's just about all the weaknesses that I can think of, anyway. But other than that, it doesn't seem too bad!

Poison/Psychic would be quite interesting, most of the trainers in Koga's gym had Drowzees and Hypnos so it's not like the types have been too far apart in the past.

As long as there aren't too many evolution lines obviously copied over from previous existing one then the new pokemon should be alright. I'm looking at you Woobat and Conkeldurr.

I agree it'd be interesting although I think it'd be special because really, Weezing can be special and the majority are physical, so why not break out of the cage and just try something new with poisons :3
