    Good List, that had to take a while to make, out of all those type combos Fairy/Fighting is the one I want to see the most. Maybe I'll get lucky and it will be an Elf-like expy of Lucario

    I already said this before in other threads, but sure, let's roll with it:
    1. Dragon/Bug: Probably this gen's pseudo.
    2. Grass/Fire: Some random standalone, or a species that needs Sun Stone to evolve.
    3. Fire/Ice: New "cool" Mythical.
    4. Ghost/Rock: This generation's spook.
    5. Ground/Fighting: This generation's fighter.
    6. Electric/Fighting: Some random standalone.
    7. Dark/Electric: Mid-game fodder.
    8. Fire/Fairy: Probably starter or pseudo-starter.
    9. Bug/Psychic and/or Bug/Dark: Generational bug/s.
    10. Psychic/Poison: This gen's esper.
    11. Poison/Steel: Alternate form.
    12. Bug/Ice: Volcarona clone.
    13. Ground/Fairy: Alternate form.
    14. Electric/Poison: This gen's snake.

    Rest can be left for Gen 9.

    Surprised we never got Grass/Fire in Alola, that would've been the perfect time for that type combo to show up. I think a couple of these could be covered by new forms/variants of old Pokemon, although I'm not sure we would get them in this game:

    Grass/Fire- Sunkern/Sunflora
    Electric/Dark- Luxray (probably saved for DP remakes)
    Electric/Fighting- Zeraora or Electivire
    Poison/Psychic- Ekans/Arbok

    I'm actually surprised to see that some of them have not been done yet.
    Either way, I'd like to see a decent Bug/Dragon.
    Make it a Pseudo to spice things up.

    Some ideas:
    Fire/Grass - flaming tiki
    Bug/Ice - weta
    Dark/Electric - tiger or a Mega/Regional variant of Luxray
    Bug/Dragon - Mega/Regional variant of Flygon

    I'd really like to see what a Dark/Fairy could do. I'd imagine it as some sort of mischievous creature from mythology. Maybe a troll, pixie, or gremlin.

    Hmm... if we could only habe 5 new types from thag list in no paticular order I choose...

    Fire/Ice, for final stage of a Fire starter.
    Grass/Fire, 3 stage line based on spicey pepper.
    Fighting/Electric, special attacking energy warrior.
    Normal/Ghost regional mammal that is a lemur.
    Fairy/Ground, naked mole.

    I think we need a glow worm pokemon. Psychic / Bug.

    Also a blind mole rat pokemon. Fairy / Ground.

    Ground/Fairy idea: A Lawn Gnome. Could have been an alolan form of Drowzee/Hypno.

    Hate to burst your bubble, but Zeraora was confirmed as pure Electric when it first leaked in US/UM datamining. Electivire they'll probably leave untouched since GF doesn't seem to bother with new evolutions now and that the regional variants were given to 1st Gen-based lines with no cross-gen relative (Pikachu line excepted, where only Raichu got the Alolan form) as fanservice to the 20th anniversary.

    Still would love to see Electric/Fighting happen on a new 8th Gen Pokemon. Bug/Dark and Bug/Psychic are ones I'd love to see since we've had a lot of cool-looking Bug-types introduced lately and I think new type combinations for them will be the next step forward for the type.

    They were suggesting a change, not declaring its typing.

    Just give us a Bug/Dragon psuedo and make Dragon the third type to be paired with all of the others.

    Either that or Dragon/Bug regional variant for Flygon.

    Electric/Dark, Electric/Poison, and Ghost/Rock are the type combos I'm most looking forward to seeing. I feel like there can be some really unique pokemon that can be designed around those types. I think I remember a fakemon awhile back that was Electric/Dark that was supposed to be based on a Brontosaurus or something and had references to Quasars in its name. It sounded like it would have been pretty epic.

    Stakataka should have been Ghost / Rock
     
  16. paipr_christian

    paipr_christian grass type fan.

    Rock/Ghost
    Rock/Dark
    Rock/Psychic

    Those were the types I expected. Specially with its seemingly 'legion' like concept.

    Im ok with Rock/Steel..... just not as much as I would have been for one of those combos.

    Yeah I can see that and any of those combos might've helped make it seem even more alien, debatably speaking of course

    Knew I forgot something. Yeah, I want to see a Bug/Dragon Flygon variant too.

    I dont think regional variants should be used to "fix" type combos. Aka make them what people/fans think they should be.

    If we get a regional Flygon Id rather see one that like, lives in storms (Electric/Dragon) or on constant snow covered/blizzrded mountain tops (Ice/Dragon) or heck a jungle variant (Grass/Dragon).

    But thats just me..... and maybe others?

    I mean I would like to see more creative variants, but at the same time there are some Pokemon that could use a mulligan on their type combo. I think there should be a mix, some that fix type combos, some that are just really out there.
