How many of you guys believe that Gen 6 will introduce a new typing?

I hope we don't get a new typing.


Why not?


Among other things, odds are this isn't going to be a magical chart balancing type and there are good odds that it won't be implemented in a way that would help balance.

Second, it would mean either a massive retcon for existing Pokemon (types and moves), or they'd have to make a disproportionally large number of the new Pokemon belong to this typing, or else the new type(s) would be disproportionately small compared to the existing 800~ Pokemon.

That's purely speculation, and a really pessimistic view as well...

I'm not seeing how this is a problem.
