I just realized, should triple types ever be introducing ─ I pray not ─ the overall stat system would also have to be readjusted. Hypothetically speaking, at current base stats a Pokémon who has a triple type weakness against another type would likely be knocked out in one quick swoop. Older Pokémon wouldn't stand a chance if they didn't have their base stats re-evaluated.

    I think it could work! Some pokemon seem tripled typed to me. Probopass seems Rock-Steel-Electric. Lucario seems Fighting-Steel-Psychic. Examples like this and some new pokemon would fit nicely I think. Fire-Water-Grass type would be crazy! it could make for some great new matchups Btw, your Billy Joe icon and signature is drop dead sexy, If I may say so xD

      I always imagined Dual-Typed attacks attacking a pokemon to be like:
      e.g/ Fire/Fighting to Normal/Water. Fire against Normal/Water is 0.5x and Fighting against Normal/Water is 2x.
      0.5x X 2x = 1x so it would deal neutral damage.

      Anyway, back on topic, triple types would be hilarious but quite confusing for the younger players.
      Now think of triple types + double typed moves! By my calculations, you could potentially deal 512x damage! But that is impossible due to the way Pokemon types work.

        The only way I really see it possible, is by having a move that adds a certain type to a Pokemon, like maybe dark, but still. :/
        What about dual-type moves instead? Triple-type Pokémon could take more advantage of them because they could utilize more dual-type move combinations, but their existence wouldn't be required for that of dual-type moves.

          Even dual-type moves would sort of mess things up, I tried a thread on that and got some good explanations on why that wouldn't work xD Expecially if we had triple types and dual moves xD

          Well they could just... avoid making that typing. XD; Or at least give that Pokemon sturdy. :x But yeah that's a really good point as to why it's kind of unlikely to happen. Buuut there are still ways around it so idk.

            They could start by making Stealth Rock not so much of a pain in the arse.

            Nah SR is necessary to keep certain mons under control. If they changed around SR for triple typings that would just destroy a lot of what we already know :( And make certain mons way more stronger.

              Yeah, imagine a Volcarona without SR! That would be devastating. Pokemon like Dragonite for example would become much more powerful and unbalanced due to being able to abuse their ability more often. However, I wouldn't be opposed if their was some slight tweak to it. It's no fun when your favourite Gyrados gets half it's HP cut from silly little rocks. :(

                Triple types could cause some balance issues, though would be a really cool thing to add

                  Triple types? No...just no. Dual-type pokemons are more than enough.

                  Dual types attacks like other people mentioned would be a lot more appropriate.

                  Especially if they make the dual attacks finally give Rock, Ice, and Grass types an edge in competitive battles.

                    Like my thoughts on Triple Battles I think that Triple Types would be WAY too convoluted I honestly already feel mixed about dual-types.

                        What kinds of already-existing moves do you think that these kinds of Pokémon could use and that could be enhanced with a second typing?

                        I think that would just add way too much complexity to the game mechanics, there's already enough combinations for dual-types with the 17 types that haven't been used yet. It just doesn't really make sense to do it right now.

                        Triple types would literally make me quit the game. It adds too much confusion to a game that is meant for kids and it could possibly break any semblance of balance the game already has. On top of that, moves' base powers would have to be adjusted too much to accommodate a 6x weak / 6x resist so that they weren't too powerful / too weak.
