What other possible gimmicks could be done?

A static theme. Powers up, speeds up, or boosts electric moves/Pokemon. Certain Pokemon can have an ability that creates static in the air. Easy.

Nightfall. Boosts dark or ghost types. Give a Pokemon a Nightfall ability and make it similar to rain teams. Dark needs some serious juice.

Eh... electric's kinda already covered by Rain, but... if there was a static-in-the-air thing, it could be primarily flying and lightning could coast on the two of them as its "effect".
Dark... well, the Night Fog thing I'm a huge fan of (other topic), maybe if you gave some effects though?

*I disagree with Echo type. I included it because I had the idea
Not changing this sig until we get a new main series Tales game released on a Nintendo console in the US

And a canyon is certainly a good weather effect name.
I'd have just had it be affected by Hail. Refraction of sound in a blizzard, etc.

Night fog could lower accuracy for all moves but dark type. Dark type moves would always hit. Maybe have a negative effect on psychic and a positive effect for Ghost.

There should be a move that removes weather conditions. Like the move version of airlock
"Hello, um, you..."
That akward moment where, after talking to someone every day, you still don't remember their name.

I like the idea of an electric-only condition but it would get banned real fast

I LOVE the idea of something boosting ghost and darks.

Powers up Dark-type moves.
Halves power of Fairy-type moves.
All non-Dark/Ghost/Psychic moves get 10% accuracy drop.
