Maybe dual type moves just mean you pick the type before you attack?

Let's say you want to use an attack... you have the choice to select one of two possible types before hitting enter.

That wouldn't be so broken, would it?

Yes, it would be broken.

So you basically get 5 moves?

Better than 9x effectiveness or whatever the **** it gets up to, I guess.

I'm hoping it divides the power of the move in half, and assigns it to each type. So Muddy Water is a 47.5 power Water move and a 47.5 power Ground move.

I think this, or multi-hits (with power divided, as mentioned above), or something following the basic rules of Curse but with different type-triggers, would be the best ways to do it.

Otherwise, as someone mentioned, give Ho-oh a fire/flying move and attack a bug/grass. STAB on each type, PLUS quadruple effectiveness on both types.

Plus 25% boost from dry skin on parasect. So basically, sacred fire would have a base power of 2000 BP on parasect.
Not changing this sig until we get a new main series Tales game released on a Nintendo console in the US
