This poll is now closed.
Oh this topic again.

Yes, this is quite literally a copy/pasted product of the same poll I've done twice now. I'm tracking peoples opinions in regards to a new type with the revelation of new information and, of course, passing time.

It's been over a month, and with the new picture of the Eeveelutions floating around, I figured now is as good a time as any to take another reading.

I apologize profusely for the users who are ****ing sick of seeing new type speculation and Sylveon-related topics. If it's any consolation, hopefully the question will be answered soon and you'll be able to rub it in everyone's face.

40-49%.

I honestly don't know what to think at this point.

The only reason they added new types in gen 2 was for balance reason. And yeah, I know... the game's balance isn't exactly perfect currently. But it's a hell of a lot better than it was back in the day.

It would make sense if there's a new type.

Poison and Dark needs more types to be strong against, and whatever the **** Sylveon is, the former definitely look like it'll be strong against it.

Not likely, I'd say...

Unless they find a huge trail to follow, we're not getting new types anytime soon.

I don't see why it couldn't happen. Game Freak can do whatever they want. There's nothing stopping them from adding new types.

That said, I don't think it will happen, but also wouldn't be surprised if it did.

Any proof for this claim?

I see it repeated a lot, but unless the developers came out and explicitly said this it's speculation.

Another possible reason is that there were Pokemon designs that didn't fit into the then-current type system.

Either way, there is reason for a new type to be created.
