    So the new triple battle feature got me thinking... What would happen if they decided to give some pokemon three types? Would this cause the pokemon's design to become more flashy than they already are? Would this harm the balance of pokemon battles?

    Would you like Pokemon to implement three types to one single pokemon?

    Nonono, I would hate this. I mean, imagine a Flying/Grass/Dragon Pokemon with an 8x weakness to Ice. Any kind of 8x weakness is just ridiculous.

        This could easily make some pokemon ridiculously broken powerful or ridiculously weak.

        That'd ruin the fun for me IMO (also imagine the nostalgia freaks going all crazy). Having 289 different possible type variations is way more than enough for me. Some pokemon would be made ridiculously overpowered if they did this (Imagine 3 STABs and 8x resistances, that's absolutely unimaginably broken)

        The concept sounds cool, but calculating how much damage the Pokemon receives would sound too complicated.

          thats too much to learn and remember, and it would make me want to break my game.

          Calculating how much damage attacks would do, and not to mention the fact it could make some Pokemon ridiculously overpowered, having Triple-type Pokemon is a bad idea.

            It would definitely overcomplicate things.

            but a fire/grass/water type would be a total bamf.

              As mentioned before, incredibly game-breaking.
              Not to mention the design of a Pokemon involving three types would be very... catastrophic. Some of the mono types and dual types are bad, imagine an improperly done three types...
              And the effect that it would have on the competitive battlers... That'd be a nice way to troll them though. :\

                No way. Their design would be worse than the actual one, and how would you remember all the types of each pokè? It'd drive people crazy.

                  Certain pokemon could either be broken, or have too many weakness against them. It would just be a big mess if they added Triple Typing. The pokemon would probably look weird cause I'd think their appearance would have to meet up with their typing attribute, so if they have three types that pokemon will just look strange. I would see new types before I would see this.

                  It would be fun... for a day. I'd actually really like to see a bunch of designs for 3x typed pokemon because I'm sure some really strange and fun ideas could come out of it, but like everyone's said: it would overcomplicate and unbalance the game.

                      Its too cool to the point it will break the meta-game, and make some pokemon uberly strong while it will make some pokemon pretty much useless. It's also will needless overcomplicating the game and over complicating the designs of future pokemons

                        I think it is a good idea
                        Yes calculation would get a lot more more confusing but adding a few new rules when it comes to damage would change that
                        i was working on one solution and i think im pretty close

                          This is one of the most outrageous Pokemon-related things I've ever heard, haha! I would seriously like to see a chart for these triple-typings! Can you imagine? I sure can, and it's catastrophic from a damage calculation standpoint. The day this happens is the day I throw my hands up and leave this silliness forever.

                          I think triple type combinations would make things way too difficult. As it is, we've already got 136 dual types plus 17 more single types, but with triple types you'd have to add on an extra 680 combinations, which would make figuring out all of the weakness/resistances needlessly confusing. Sure, it could make for some interesting combos, but there are still plenty of dual-types we haven't seen yet. Maybe once those have been exhausted, I'd be a little more receptive of triple-type Pokemon.

                              And no, OP means a Pokemon possessing three types simultaneously, not in different forms.

                              That's right.
