What new type combinations would you like to see in Gen8

Ice/Fairy and Dragon/Fairy that are not either Alolan or Mega, as well as Dark/Fairy.

I wouldn't say no to a pseudo-Legendary that is part of a Ghost-type, perhaps combined with Dragon.

Def agree with lots of forms/M.evos getting used as regular lines.

Ice/Fairy could be used maybe a snow hair? Maybe it uses it's long feet like skies to go quickly down snowy mountain sides.

For Dragon/Fairy what if we had a unique pine that starts off more dragon like and evolves to a Fairy/Dragon taking on a smaller more fairy like appearance.

And yeah a Ghost/Dragon psuedo could be great, a lizard with a skeletal like design or something.

Bug/Dragon is probably my most wanted. After that happens, Dragon has mixed with every type.

At least with Metagross we got a psuedo legendary with different types. It would be good to get another psuedo legendary that's not a dragon.

Fairy/Ground would be the best combo ever since all three of the types that resist Fairy are weak to Ground making Fairy and Ground a strong attacking combination.

Cramorant is too cute for words!
I think Electric/Poison would be good with Levitate, otherwise it’d be weak 4x to Ground moves. Maybe a battery Pokémon?
Bug/Dragon would be nice. I could see a dragonfly that’s part dragon, part fly.
Electric/Fighting and Psychic/Poison would be good types for a pseudo legendary.
Poison/Steel, a battery could work as well.
Electric/Fighting I could see a regional electric rodent having this combo.
Normal/Ghost a zombie could work, or for a Dark/Fairy I’d choose a kelpie.
Grass/Fire I could see a little flaming seed that evolves into some bush or tree based Pokémon with flaming leaves.
Fire/Ice, I don’t know what would work for that, maybe a flaming dry ice Pokémon?
Electric/Poison would also be good for an Asian Giant Hornet Pokemon.
Psychic/Poison would be a good mold Pokémon as well.

Fire/Ice or Ice/Fire, and for this type combo, I don't know why, I've recently had an idea for a Pokemon that is kind of like CatDog, the old cartoon. Or a two headed snake.
 

Mega Altaria

I would love for a Fairy/Psychic
We already have a number of them, which are Mr. Mime, Ralts, Kirlia, Gardevoir, Mime Jr. and Tapu Lele. I think Fairy definitely needs more unique type combos.

Fairy has currently yet to be paired with Dark, Fire, Fighting, Ground, and Poison.

But it's a new type so it definitely needs some more things to shape it up especially more type combos, especially for non-Legendary Pokémon.

Kinda mentioned this in another topic.

I'm really curious to see Ice/Poison done. And even though it's technically been done (as a Rotom form) I'm also curious to see an actual Evo line that is Ice/Electric.

Both just dont seem to logically mix with Ice, so yeah I'd be curious to see them actually do those as Evo lines (not forms or M.Evos)

Ice/Poison could be some sort of an ancient virus that has been frozen in ice.
I don't have any ideas for a Electric/Ice type though.

Well, there's ice cubes that glow under uv-lights and those folks that make electrically lit ice sculptures.

So maybe some ice creature/being that incorporates glowing parts for Ice/Electric? Now with the 3D models that's a possibility, just look at Malamar.

I'd really love a "computer' virus for Electric/Poison tbh.

For Ice/Poison. I'm thinking a 2 stage cat Pokemon. It's final stage is Mantichill or Manticold (manticore + chill/cold).

The idea is its sweets a type of coolant around it's neck that upon contacting air causes a lion like mane to appear but made of a super cold fog.

It's extremely toxic to breath this air in. But if threatened Mantichill/Cold will flap it's wings (some manticore have wings) to fan the cold toxic cold towards it's foes.

This is a well thought out idea. I can see this as a Pokemon. I'd like a Kelpie. Someone above said Dark/Fairy. I can see that as well as the more obvious Water/Fairy.

I would really love to see a Electric/Dark type and Fire/Fairy as my top two picks. I also have some ideas for some other unused type combos and what the Pokemon could be based on.

Grass/Fire could be a dinosaur like Pokemon with jalapenos growing on it.
Normal/Ice could be a caribou
Normal/Ghost could be a blanket ghost
Bug/Ice could be a snow scorpionfly (a bug that does exist and does live in snow)
Electric/Dark could be this region's regional electric rodent
Fire/Fairy I am all for it being the starter and being a bunny
Dark/Fairy could be an Imp/biased off of Rumplestilskin

I want a Electric/Poison type Pokémon too. That combination makes me think about a radioactive Pokémon but I doubt it will ever happen, especially after the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster in 2011. A Pokémon based on a computer virus would be a good alternative.

Another wish for a new type combination is a thermometer Pokémon that is Ice/Fire. It could be the object based Pokémon of gen 8. I mean the ones like the Magnemite line, Bronzor and Bronzong, Spiritomb, Rotom, the Klink line, Cryogonal, Klefki, and Dhelmise.

I would like a fairy/ground. Would it be special or physical?

I'd prefer special, but physical fairy has not been used enough and the only physical attack move for fairy is play rough.

I think Electric/Poison would be good with Levitate, otherwise it’d be weak 4x to Ground moves. Maybe a battery Pokémon?
Bug/Dragon would be nice. I could see a dragonfly that’s part dragon, part fly.

I would like electric/poison too. It would have to have Levitate otherwise it would be useless.
bug/dragon would be interesting
I've always thought electric/fighting would be cool. I though Zerazora should have been electric/fighting
Fire/bug could be a fire ant
Fire/grass should definitely be a burning bush
