Sunny- Hm I am kind of warming up to the idea, but what kind of Light attack would exist? Would Light be effective against Dark and vice verse or would it be neutral?
You're free to burn me and pour gasoline on me - I made an image people can use to endorse Light types. Anyone who thinks Light types would be a cool addition to Pokemon can use the image in my signature.
I'm SunnyC. Of course I would support Light types.
Your saying that since the creators used valuable metals and gems as names for their games, and if they wanted to do the same for the 5th gen, the new gems/metals would have to be more valuable to top the previous names.
But since they already used the best gems/metals, that would prove extremely difficult. Does that about sum it up?
Now, I explain. That only holds true under two conditions:
1) The values of the metals/gems equate to the values of the names game-wise.
2) They wanted to top this gen, name-wise/game wise.
Of course both are false. The names are chosen based on how well they fit the games, not on how valuable the associated item is. And they chose Black and White for the same reason.
Indragon- Very true, it would be interesting to see what kind of attacks a Light type has.
Also a bit off topic bit I have always been a little confused about the quote in your sig (A story right?). Did Gary go out with a Blastoise or is that the name of a girl?
