Also lurking on this board it seems like most people are really against dual-type moves.

I wonder why?

Fire/Flying move on a Dry Skin Parasect.

You do the math.

If (that is a **very** strong 'if') they implement dual type moves, I really hope they cap it at 4x damage. I will accept 6x, but that would still be very broken.

I just don't think it will be a good idea, mechanics wise.

How many times damage would that be, assuming Charizard's the one using that, and he has blaze as a skill?

2x damage for Fire -> Bug

2x damage for Fire -> Grass

2x damage for Flying -> Bug

2x damage for Flying -> Grass

1.5x damage for Fire STAB

1.5x damage for Flying STAB

1.25x damage for Fire -> Dry Skin

1.5x damage if Charizard has Blaze and is under 1/3 of his max HP

I calculate 67.5x damage.

Now, Parasect has 324 max HP. This move under these circumstances is a guaranteed OHKO if the move would deal a mere 5 damage before multipliers are applied.
