If Fairy/Lightning is introduced there will be a few Pokemon getting this type i think, such as the Clefairy, Jigglypuff, Togepi and maybe even the Minccino line. Mawile to me doesnt really look liek a fairy type, rather the "opposing" dark type, but oh well.

I hope/think they won't retype too many other Pokemon that are not affected but this new type, since things are fine as they are right now. Making Blastoise a dual type after so many years in existence would just be weird and out of place i think.

And i don't think there will be more than just one new type (if any), since there is no trace of evidence that could suggest it. Sylveon's type being secret makes me believe he is going to be a new type, but i don't think there is going to be a 2nd one

    You mean Fairy/Light? Lightning makes no sense with Electric being a type. I said Mawile as an example because the rumor lists it. I just used Blastoise as an example because I couldn't think of one people would understand as an example which needs a new typing.

      I agree (on Mawile). It just looks like a steel-type Pokemon, perhaps more so normal-type to me.

Do you think they will add more types including the Fairy/Light one? If so what will the Pokemon that are affected by it become?
        There is no guarantee of retyping. If its been one type for years and generations there isn't much chance of them changing type. Blastoise is a turtle. Its shell is supposed to be hard. If Blastoise has to gain an additional type then so does Torkoal.

        I don't seen them retyping Pokemon. There isn't any need and all it will do is question why these new types didn't effect the Pokemon before. Why did they have to weaken older Pokemon by giving it a new type? Even if they added a new type there isn't much to say that anything else would change.

          one pokemon that should be retyped is gyarados, back then it didn't got part dragon type because the only dragon type move that exist was dragon rage which basicly mean he would have no weakness, but today there are a lot of dragon type move and maybe a new type will introduce and even make dragon type less powerful.
          so i think that if to retype some pokemon gyarados is a good choice

            I don't think Blastoise should get a new type either... I was using it as an example... Clefairy being the Fairy Pokemon and all, it'd be weird to stay Normal type if Fairy type is real... Many of the types were done wrong, so implementing the new type and changing many Pokemon types would give them the reason to fix their own problems.

            I think they didn't make Gyrados a Dragon for three reasons: The one you listed, wanting Dragonite to be the only Dragon family in Gen 1, and the Legend Magikarp and Gyrados are based on said the creature is dragon like, but not actually a dragon.

            I think a Rock/Light type Gem Pokemon makes sense, but the luster from a gem isn't actually light. Steel/Light laser type thing would be cool, if done correctly. I think they will bring in new types commonly as we progress as it changes the meta up which makes people that are falling out of Pokemon, like I was, come back. The new Panda Pokemon didn't hurt in that regard...

            I definitely don't see any Pokémon getting retyped honestly. If there ends up being a new type then MAYBE we'll see some old Pokémon gaining that type, similar to how the Magnemite line got its part Steel typing. Random retypings though I definitely don't seem happening, especially like giving Blastoise a Rock/Steel secondary just for its shell.

            I'd love to see other Pokemon retyped to the new type [only], esp. if it ends up being Fairy.

            There are so many older Pokemon that could earn that classification! Jigglypuff, Clefairy, Snubull... Just to name a few. Everything else should remain untouched, however, as to not be too "startling." Just getting a new type is "startling" enough! No need to revamp everything.

              I would love the fairy type to be introduced, as we have dragon, and it actually makes sense, as a lot of old Pokémon would fit into this typing. This is what I want if they decide to change old Pokémon types! Cleffa, Clefairy, and Clefable should now be purely fairy type, along with Igglybuff, Jigglypuff, Wigglytuff, Happiny, Chansey, Blissey and Togepi. Audino, Snubbull, Granbull, Skitty and Delcatty should be normal/fairy, and I also think Togetic and Togekiss should be fairy/flying. I would also like to see Uxie, Mesprit and Azelf all become psychic/fairy type. Maybe Mienshao should become fighting/fairy type too, and Mawile should become steel/fairy! And of course Sylveon will be this type, and maybe Xerneas will be fairy/steel.

                I can see Electric being weak to Fairy. Magic > Science.

                You could also say Science > Magic, and make electric SE against Fairy :P

                  adding a light type will tell people that dark types are naturally evil... It doesnt sound good.

                  I don't think it would mean dark types are naturally evil. They sure do have that naughty attitude and appearance, but they can be as helpful and good as any other type of Pokemon.
                  Being dark doesn't make you an evil pokemon

                    They are Villain/Evil type in Japanese... I think Light/Dark counter types are well over due, plus the meta really needs some tuning...

                    So for the fairy type that's been circulating around the internet. Is this rumor legit or it's only rumors?

                      It's still just that, a rumour.

                      The mount Pokemon was already confirmed to be legit, tho.

                      You guys think that Game Freak would add a new type to the game?

                        You guys think that Game Freak would add a new type to the game?
                        Yes... It mixes up the meta game, making it less stale, making people want to play it more who fell out of it, improving sells.

                        Don't you think it could make people like it less also?

                        I know I wouldn't want a new typing right now =/
                        I like how it is right now.

                        A new type is possible at this stage and with the Fairy type rumour flying about, it makes it a little more believable. I wouldn't be surprised if they pulled a new type upon us but I can imagine the reactions would be equally split tbh.

                          It would make things messy, and I have to say I really don't like the idea

                          It wouldn't be messy if they keep the type system balanced. Honestly, the only issue with introducing a new type now is just getting used to the idea that there's a new type around meaning new strengths/immunities/weaknesses for some.

                          A new type sounds like progression... which is what it needed in the franchise.

                          I don't think progression just for the sake of progression is a good idea either. Adding in a new type because it serves an actual purpose? Awesome. Adding it in just because why not? Eh, sounds like more risk than reward to me. However, if they can add it in effectively without screwing up the type chart I'll be more than happy with it.
