New Types Speculation Thread
For starters, there has been NO mention of a new type happening whatsoever. This is just for fun!
If you don't think that there should be a new type that is a completely valid opinion and feel free to share. Just please be specific with your comments and explain why you feel this way, don't just post "Eww, no. This is stoopid no new types pls." Because that's not really adding to the conversation. Remember that many people here are just having fun and don't necessarily think there ideas should/will happen.
So, here are my ideas! I don't think that they have to do a new type and won't cry if they don't add one, but it's still fun to talk about! I mostly want to see ice and ghost get a boost and most of my stuff will revolve around that. There aren't really a lot of types left they could even do.
A prism type or crystal type I think is doable and hasn't been done yet. I could see it being strong against fairy type (as many fable creatures in stories can be trapped in crystals) and perhaps one other type, like steel or something. I'd like it to be weak to ghost and ice, as ghosts can possess crystals and ice makes natural crystals that could freeze and shatter them. I know, it's a logic stretch but just what I want XD. I'd like Ghost and Ice to resist it too. It's my fav speculation for a new type, and they could even pay homage to the crystal onix and make it a new Pokemon that is an alternative evolution to onix or something
A space or stellar type is what I thought fairy type could be before it was revealed, as Clefairy is thought to be from the moon/space and Pokémon like Deoxys come from there. With fairy type sort of filling that niche, I think it's less possible now. I could see it being strong against fairy and dark, resisting types like steel, ice and dark. Hard to think of a weakness and strength per-say cause the vacuum of space pretty much kills everything XD. I still want Ice to be effective against it but how do you logic that?
A sound or Audio type is a popular one already cause so many attacks and abilities are already sound based in the game. That might also make it a double edged sword, as since it is so embedded in the game already it might make it harder to split it apart. Meloetta, Exploud and Chatot are easy type retcon candidates (I could even see voltorb and electrode getting the type add on) but what about Pokémon like Audino and Wyvern who look like they should have it, but it would be hard to add on?
I don't even know where to begin in the type matchups for this one either XD. I'm sure someone out there has already logiced it out.
