The only new type I would be okay with is...

Sound.

There are already a lot of moves, Pokemon, and abilities that could be used by them.

Existing Pokemon:
Chatot
Normal/Flying > Sound/Flying

Whismur/Loudred/Exploud
Normal > Normal/Sound

Kricketune
Bug > Bug/Sound

Igglybuff/Jigglypuff/Wigglytuff
Normal > Normal/Sound

Meloetta
Normal/Psychic > Normal/Sound

Bronzor > Bronzong
Steel > Steel/Sound

Chingling/Chimecho
Psychic > Sound

Existing Moves
All changed to Sound-type.

Echoed Voice
Growl
Heal Bell
Hyper Voice
Perish Song
Relic Song
Roar
Round
Screech
Sing
Snore
Supersonic
Uproar

New Moves
Sound Wave - (Status) Protection against Status Moves for one turn. Same priority as Protect, Wide Guard, Quick Guard, and Detect.

High Note - (Special) User sends out a high screech that may cause the opponent to flinch.

Quaver Slash - (Physical) User summons an eighth note and slashes the opponent with it. Has a high critical hit ratio.

Abilities could include the existing Soundproof and new ones like Amplifier (like Overgrow, Blaze, Torrent, and Swarm) and Harmonize (Which increases the Sp. Attack of the Pokemon if paired with another Pokemon with Harmonize, like Plus and Minus)

Type chart.

Sound
Offensive:
Super-effective against:
Water (Sound travels faster in Water)
Steel (Can tavel through metals like Steel)
Dragon (reptiles are sensitive to high/low sounds?)

Not-very-effective against:
Psychic (learn to meditate and block any distractions)
Sound (Sound waves stop other sound waves)
Ice (Snow absorbs sound and Ice could reflect it back?)

Defensive
Weak to: Electric (Electrical waves could disrupt sound waves?)
Rock (Rocks travel right through the waves?)
Psychic (Can manipulate the sound waves?)

Resistant to:
Sound (Sound waves stop other sound waves)

I'm not sure how to work that part.

I'm not sure I'd be accepting of a new type purely because the new type would be disproportionately small unless there was a sufficiently large retcon of existing Pokemon, or a considerably large number of the new Pokemon would have to conveniently belong to that type.

No. Sound is a horrible idea for a type.

I don't see any need for a new type, but it's a much better idea than Light type. It needs more resistances, though. And I'd make Meloetta Sound/Psychic and Sound/Fighting.

Still times better than Bug. And noone of you stopped GF from adding Bug. No. Friggin' One.
