Danggit! I knew it was somewhere between 15-17, but Icouldn't remember if I was counting dark or steel or not and didn't want to go and count. Thank you for correcting me.
Oh, and I don't see Solrock as a Light type, Because then to balance it wouldn't Lunatone have to become Dark?
Wow, I never really thought about the whole Sableye/Spiritomb typing thing, that is a wonderful point!
I think the real reason people use Solrock as a... mascot I suppose, for Light, is cuz it looks like the sun.
Well, blaze boy said that Light would "mess up the balance between the type undoing the reason why dark type and steel type where brought in." But the reason Dark was brought in was because Psychic was WAAAAAAY overpowered in the early days. It's not half as powerful now as it was then. New moves have been made, different additions to the battle systems, new Type-combos - all these have a play in the balancing of the Type system. Light wouldn't mess it up. It'd add an interesting new spin. Something to twist your strategies around. People don't complain when a new Type-combo happens. Why should a new Type be different? It makes you reconsider your moves, teams, everything you do. I think a Light Type would be a wise move on GF's part.
