Yeah, well, at the same time, while I did, in fact, say that, I really doubt triple-typing. It strikes me as a bad idea, at least.

No one mentioned it? I definitely did, but I guess you didn't look through the whole board, so, whatever. --- If I had a nickel for every time I said, "If I had a nickel", I'd have at least two nickels. Official Ampharos of the B/W 2 Boards

I did try looking before I started this topic, but I couldn't find anything else. And now that I've thought it over, Kyurem having three types wouldn't make much sense anyway besides giving him a boost while using an electric or fire move. Won't make sense in Gen 6 either, so ya. --- JMarty91

Still, I'm not sure if we should put anything past GF these days; they've been doing a lot of weird things lately.

What about Black and White being on the DS? The fact that BW ONLY had new Pokemon? --- Pokemon Red & Blue in full color: http://kantoinlivingcolor.deviantart.com/#/d4n2shf

Right, and I suppose they're going to add another 20 new Pokemon mid-generation, introduce two-typed moves and combination attacks, cut out the Flying-type, give Arceus a permanent 20% encounter rate on Route 1, and make Farfetch'd viable for no-clause gameplay.
Maybe I've undersold how many changes GameFreak made this generation. So what? That's no reason to believe they've thrown everything out the window. Yes, anything is possible. No, not everything's going to happen.
It's foolish to assume that they made a Pokemon that appears in an empty slot when you evolve something else, and then decided, "We've never done that before. Screw it, let's go change the whole stat system, guys!" Those events were unrelated and it just so happened that they transpired in the same generation; one wasn't the basis for the other. With that in mind, don't you think it's equally foolish to assume that they'll revamp the type system strictly on the basis that they're making sequels for the first time? --- I claim to be the official Porygon2 of the Pokemon Black 2 board.
