No. I might be okay with one or two gimmick moves like that, though. As long as they're very limited

On 12/02/12 I said I wouldn't change this until something impossible happened. Now, Earthbound is coming to the US.

Probably the ones who suck at math, and thus fail to see the true impact of such a thing in the game and the metagame.

The possibility of having 8x or even 16x weaknesses, along with the potential increase in 4x weaknesses, is just wrong on so many levels. -_-

No. Too complicated for me. I like how I can quickly work out in my head what move will be effective against what. With dual types you need to factor in the overlapping types of the move AND the pokemon and it becomes messy.

I'll like it if it's implemented well. I don't care how many moves use it, provided it makes sense that they do and it uses a mechanic that's easy to keep straight.

If handled properly, it could be neat. If we get an Ice/Electric 90 power 100 accuracy move, FML. (Or if we get powerful moves that can also stack double weaknesses...)

This. Dual type moves would seriously mess up the mechanics and cause x32 multipliers. I think you can even have 64x, but I don't want to do the math.

On the surface of it I don't like the idea, but it is possible that they include it in a novel way that actually adds to the gameplay instead of completely ruining the already very tenuous balance.

I would welcome changes that would force a complete reassessment of the metagame though.
