There may be a new type for the next generation. Out of these 7, which would be the best? If you can find a better one, then just say "other" and specify. --- Currently playing: Metroid Other M, Rayman Origins and waiting to get a Wii U.
Sound (as a type for a lot of sound-based moves, Whismur family, et cetera) is an idea that I'd heard, as was Light, which would be both weak to and super effective on Dark (obviously with other stuff), and would represent the "sacred magic" cliché category rather well:
Obvious Sound moves/Pokémon: Everything in Soundproof that's normal Whismur line
Obvious Light moves/Pokémon: Arceus Judgement Sacred Fire (tough to say, because... well, it's sacred, but it's also fire)
And if they are types, there can be more, there just aren't that many yet. That didn't keep them from doing Dark and Steel though. (stares at conspicuous lack of Dark types obtainable in FRLG pre-ending) --- I hack life. Got a Wii U launch night!
Weak to: Poison, Normal Resisted by: Bug Resists: Psychic, Ground, Electric, Ghost and Water Super Effective against: Fighting, Dragon and Steel --- Pokemon White FC: 0046-2279-8375 Xbox GT: erekwashere15 Official Scrafty and Barry of the B/W 2 Boards
Space/Cosmic, Speed, Sound, or love. I think those are the best ideas for new types. --- "What are you waiting for, Mr. Howel? Start talking into a fish!" -The Skipper (Early B & W episode of Gilligan's Island)
