A summary inside why we don't need these new type ideas.

Fairy: Why would we need a fairy type? Psychic is a pretty good relative. so there's really no reason to make this.
Sound: It would change most sound moves to this type, which could ruin a few strategies.
Light: I actually support this type.
Overall: A new type would throw everything off balance.

God forbid people have to think of new strategies

Um

Also, about your title, it's not a matter of need

I'd disagree. While Psychic may be definitive of a certain number of pokemon, to generalize an entire collection of "Fairy" pokemon seems to me a folly. There are so many possibilities for a new type that if all were limited to Psychic, the type easily has the potential to become the most frequent amongst the generations. And at that point, we'd be lucky that a Dark type was introduced in the first place

Not changing this sig until Celtics beat the Knicks (Probably won't be long though)

I'm not sure how Sound would ruin strategies unless they decided to make a certain type completely immune to sound (rather than just Pokemon that have soundproof)

Dude, sequels force people to change strategies all the damn time. Especially if they're considered unfair.

What, do you think Valve should stop updating TF2 because their patches "ruin strategies"?
