Dark type is Evil type in Japan guys. There will be no "light type".

Effectively "good type" already exists as Fight type. Remember this is a Japanese game.

If there is a new type, which may seem likely, it won't be called "light type".

Trying to rationalize Fighting as the "light" type just barely makes sense. It really doesn't work that well.

Glad I'm not the only one.



In truth though, how can you actually know what GF's opinion of it is? You can't. And insulting people based on their speculations is not good when neither of the sides have any proof.

'Justified' (the Ability) further proves that Fighting-type is supposed to be the anthithesis of Dark-type.

Nympheon is Heart-type :3

I'm also glad I'm not the only one. I think it's along the same thing as "Venonat was supposed to evolve into Butterfree" and "Cubone is a baby Kangaskhan" in terms of credibility.

How so? I could maybe see it if abilities had types, but that's not the case.

Explain Scrafty. And Primape. And Toxicroak.

explain beat up, faint attack, and all of those other 'shady' dark type moves

it's about dirty, unpredictable* fighting vs. "actual" fighting

*this is why dark > psychic

Dark in Pokemon isn't what you normally think of compared to other RPGS. Dark in this game is fighting dirty( Beat Up makes your whole team gang up on one opponent, Biting in martial arts is illegal, Pursuit allows you to get a hit in while your opponent switches, etc) Fighting type is honorable/legal fighting. Its the whole "cheaters never prosper" thing.

Why Toxicroak and Primape? And I guess Scrafty is the exception
