I think it would have to be a competitive-exclusive thing. Changing types would add a lot of customisation and it's balanced out by not being able to use other hold items.In-game it could potentially destroy the need to catch Pokémon. Like imagine simply holding a ground item rather than catching a ground type to deal with the electric gym.
