Assume the new type is Light/Pure/Fairy. What current Pokemon would change types and what types would they be?

Should there be triple typing? (Drapion and Flygon says yes).

Why would you put Fairy last? And why would Drapion or Flyon be fairy?

Pretty sure he's saying triple typing as in Dark/Poison/Bug for Drapion and Dragon/Ground/Flying for Flygon.

Triple typing would be a balance nightmare. I seriously doubt they'll do that.

It really wouldn't be.

And I mean:

Drapion: Dark/Poison/Bug
Flygon: Dragon/Gound/Bug...........I want to add Flying, but we'd need quad typing

And I put Fairy last because I prefer Light/Pure.

While I do agree, the recent leak mentioned dualtype moves. Clumsy implementations of that would be an even bigger balance nightmare... so hopefully they did it right!!

According to some other guy, the supposed dual-type moves are moves that are classified as one type but deal damage as if it were a different type. He mentioned a Ground type move which deals Ice type damage.

Or, that part of the leak is wrong. Whatever.

So it receives STAB from a Ground Pokemon but is super effective against a Dragon, Plant, and Flying?

That's a pretty neat way of doing dual-type moves. Gives certain type a way of striking resistant opponents without sacrificing STAB.
