Moves must have dual types in this game

Oy Oy. I thought we were just suggesting ideas for the upcoming game. No need for people to get so butt-hurt, start throwing in sales and coming to the defense of gen V (which doesn't need defending imo).

As for a point TC brought up about dual-type moves allowing legendary pkmn into an regular tier, I'm still on the fence. I don't think having buffed-up moves is a green-light to allow buffed-up pkmn into the playpin. Plus, imagine a legendary learning one these dual-type move, now the creature with OP basestats has an OP move.

Ex. Darkrai with Bug/Dark Move = death to ALL Psychic type
Ex. Kyurem with a Dragon/Ice Move = death to ALL Dragon type

All in all, I don't think dual-type moves are a good idea.

I agree with TheroyGent Dual type moves are just a bad idea to add to the game

Just think if some moves got Dual Types, entire types would be become unused because Eruption is Fire/Rock

A single Pokemon being able to hold two items would be nice.

the only way I could see this not becoming broken would be to have a move that hits twice, with different typing for each hit. For example Meteor hitting with 50 power as a Rock type move then 50 power as a Fire move.

They would never be used though since you're not getting any reliability. Anything that could learn Meteor would be better off using Stone Edge and Flare Blitz or something. Otherwise, you can't use your Fire move, Meteor, against say Torterra very effectively.
