If they actually DID make the Sound type...

It would be interesting to have a type based almost entirely on utility moves, actually.

like being weak to Growl makes it -2, weak to Screech makes it an instant -6

Weak to Sonicboom = 40 damage, STAB Howl is +2, and a few very rare actual Sound-type attacks like Hyper Voice and Chatter thrown in to be the exception to the rule?

...what would we do if Belly Drum counted? that would be terrifying.

Something doesn't have to do damage to be used in combat...

Which is why sound is the better name

If the "sonic type" ever becomes a thing, then they should make a screwdriver Pokemon with that typing.

Also, Looker will come back and it will be his favourite Pokemon.

Grass is not Plant type, but GRASS.

Call it Sound or Sonic, that would be a great idea for a new type:
- Attacks are not very effective against Fire and Grass
- Attacks are super effective against Water, Ice, Flying and Bug
- Type is resistant to Water, Ice and Flying
- Type is weak against Psychic and Dragon
- Make every Normal-type moves that the Soundproof ability can block as Sound-type; that wouldn't be broken, since we have Leviate which essentially gives immunity to Ground
- Add some moves based on volumes, frequencies, tones and melodies
- Make Wigglytuff and Exploud Normal/Sound Pokémons

After all, there are sonic weapons out there, even if they are non-lethal. Some ships carry powerful directional speakers to aim at pirates so that if they approach the ship, the sound is so loud they have to retreat. You would call such a device a "sonic weapon" before you'd call it a "sound weapon."


That's because sonic is an adjective and sound is a noun.
