Hence why there's a need for more diversity on the rare types if such a Troll Freak-like scenario happens.

And they're usually very powerful anyway, unlike Water-types which are the most represented yet there's a huge amount of useless things among them.
Not exactly, the only reason Dragon types are powerful is because the majority of them are pseudo-legendaries and legendaries. Flygon, Altaria, Kingdra, Haxorus, and Druddigon show that Dragon types aren't really that powerful, for they aren't pseudo-legendaries/legendaries. As for Water types, the only water types who are useless are your average fish Pokemon like Seaking and Amolamola. The rest of them are either decent (Golduck) or OP (Starmie). Regardless, there still needs to be less new Water types for this gen.

You can say that Flygon and Altaria are bad, but Haxorus is not a bad dragon, and certainly not Kingdra. Haxorus is in some ways even better than Hydreigon - who is a pseudo legendary.

(going to push along this thread since it seems to be slightly hanging on for it's dear life lmao)

I wonder if I'm the only one that wants a bit more steel-types this time around? I mean, blame this on my obvious fascination with steel-types such as Jirachi, Metagross and the likes, but I definitely feel that a bit more could be made? Not a lot really, maybe some new Electric/Steels(that's not Magnezone), Steel/Dragon (just so Dialga's not the only one that has this type), the likes.

Yeah I think we're in more of a need of steel types, especially in lower tiers, as they're such a useful typing really. Higher tiers would also benefit from them too, but if so I'd hope there's an increase in fire/ground, too.

Fire/Ground has always been kind of an iffy-typing to me, y'know? Correct me if I'm wrong, but I was always worried about types like those because, well, when I look at Camerupt, I kind of don't really think it can do much (though that's just at first glance), and it's just the typing itself is hard to come to terms with, but then again, it's not like it has a ton of weaknesses...just Ground and Water, iirc.

Oh I meant more fire and ground in general. XD; We need more Pokemon of those types if there's a steel increase.~

I do agree with both, especially more fire types. .___. The lack of Fire-types that Gen IV as well as V brought us was rather quite disappointing, to say the least.

Nah we had enough in gen 5 imo but more can't hurt since fire can be a pretty useful typing, and it'd even things up.
