    A lot of possible new typings I can think of seem a little bit forced. Sound could be cool but it would be hard to decide what is good or bad against it. I'm sure that at some point way down the line they'll come up with a new typing and shock people like what they did with the fairy typing, but I'm pretty comfortable with the way things are now.

    The only time I'd like to see a new type introduced is if the type can balance out Ghost because Ghost got buffed big-time this gen.

      I'd love to see a Gas-type introduced and the Bird-type brought back. That would make my day! :D

        Some people do want to see more types, however with so many types already (Including the new Fairy-type) adding more types would probably make Pokemon a little too complicated. 18 types is good enough already.
        Boilurn, the Scald Pokemon and the evolved form of Hottle. It can burn the holder by the lightest of touches when it boils. It can boil 3 gallons of water in one minute.

            I don't think there any good types left, they pretty much got everything covered. Anything else you come up with would prolly overlap an existing group making it pointless

              Considering it took so long to introduce a new type since the last expansion (Generation II), I don't think there will be any more new types, at least not for a very long time.
              However, if there ever comes yet another new type in the future, I'd like to see it not have an immunity (all of the post Gen I 'expansion' types (Steel, Dark, and Fairy) have one immunity each.) I honesty wasn't expecting Fairy to even have an immunity.

                I'd only want to see more new types if it's in the interest of balance. For example, if Ice resisted it, since Ice is the only type left in need of a serious defensive buff. (I mean, seriously, what's up with it only resisting Ice? Can't it resist like... Water, or something, at least?)

                Granted, I don't think it'll be anytime soon, if they do decide to add any more. And they'd better not nerf my precious Dark-type any more than they already have... I'll never forgive those darn Fairies, I was just fine with them until that.

                  I don't buy into the "They only introduce a new type to balance out the game play" schtick because that's hardly true. If it were true Fairy would have appeared sooner than it did, or they would have made less powerful dragons, not that the introduction of Fairy Type did anything for balance other than throw it a little further from being balanced.

                  Steel got a change, completely unrelated to fairy type addition and that was a balance update to give it a not so tanky tank feel. Fighting and Dark didn't need new weaknesses, Bug didn't need to be resisted by another type. There wasn't much balance brought in.

                  With the rant out of the way, I'd like for Sound to become an actual type. Unlike Powder, Punching, Aura, and Biting, Sound is more than just a descriptive grouping for a set of attacks and deserves its own recognition as a type. It already has an ability that nullifies it similar to other types.

                  Sound is really all I'd like to see added in right now as the other types: Cosmic, Astral, Holy, Light, ect. ...They just don't really fit in. They'd be good for RPGs in general and any Pet collection/Monster Taming games that aren't Pokemon.

                    If new type comes out, there's surely have some pokemon with three types.

                    I think the only dual-type I never want to see again is Fire/Fighting...how they got away with THREE starters like that I'll never know!
                    I agree with this post. New dual types can be an interesting way of making cool new pokémon. If some typings, Fire/water or something, would be "too strong", they could make the pokémon not an overly strong species.

                    Personally I was fine before we added Dark and Steel even, haha, because Steel could have fallen into the Rock type somehow, like with Rhyhorn. And Dark could have fallen into Psychic or ghost depending on what the pokémon was like.

                    So I'm not going to fight for yet another type to be added ;) Even though I think it was a fun thing that we got fairies. I think of that type as "fairytale" pokémon, I guess. I've heard better explanations for it though.

                    As some have said, more types would only be to balance the competitive gameplay.

                    No, I think adding more types will make the metagame even more complicated. that's not necessarily a bad thing for veterans, but for newbies it would suuuck. I think that there should be a more diverse pool of dual types rather than new types.
