Ugh heavy metal. I'll listen to things that don't give me a headache after a few seconds. I can see Pokemon like Blissey gaining Love as their secondary typing. Togetick, and Togekiss could become Love/Flying. Somehow I think Crobat would still keep its typing though. Swoobat could become either Psychic/Love or Love/Flying. Luvdisc would be Water/Love due to its Pokedex entries. --- Badge Case [Time Badge] Strifehart is my OTP. FC: 4170-0917-6393 services performed at BSC: 1 Riley's Boyfriend on the BW2 boards.

When people try to defend a "Light" type, they usually say that they want an equivalent of "holy" in other RPGs. Something a cleric or a paladin would use. Others counter this saying a paladin would be Fighting/Psychic and a cleric would be Psychic/Normal or something like that. Fighting is the foil to dark, and a "light" type would be redundant.
Light would not be redundant. When I think of Light as a type, I don't think of "holy", but of various kinds of shining lights. Here are examples of what I would think of with regard to a Light type.
Possible Light-type attacks: Laser Beam (powerful special attack) Spotlight (special version of Pursuit - it's especially humiliating to run like a coward if a spotlight is on you) Physical Light-type attacks could be akin to weapons conjured up by the Green Lantern (except they wouldn't necessarily be green), or by having appendages glow with light while attacking. Of course, Flash and Light Screen would become Light-type moves.
Possible Light-type Pokemon: Ampharos (Electric/Light) In addition to that, I could imagine Light-types based off of light bulbs, flashlights, and even stars. Any animal that naturally gives off fluorescent light could easily be the basis for a Light-type (although it's too late for Lanturn).
While Light could look like a foil to Dark, it mostly looks that way when thinking of Dark-types like Umbreon. --- http://i458.photobucket.com/albums/qq303/CharizardFire6/Char-Brawl.gif The official Charizard of the Pokemon Black 2 and White 2 boards.
