What if we had alternate types?

#1radred2004Posted 6/18/2013 1:44:29 AM(edited)
Similar to how we have Dream World abilities... for example:

Charizard is fire/flying, but we could have an alternate Charizard at fire/dragon.
Gyrados is water/flying, but we could have an alternate Gyrados at water/dragon.
Solrock is rock/psychic, but we can have an alternate Solrock at rock/fire.
Lunatone is rock/psychic, but we can have an alternate Lunatone at rock/ice.
Buterfree is bug/flying, but we can have an alternate Buterfree at bug/psychic.

And so on, so forth... only concerns is that it would vastly change battling with others, but it would also add diversity.

Why does Gyarados stay the same?

Anyway, no. It would change things far too much with no good reason to change things anyway.

What do you mean Gyrados stay the same? His second typing would be water/dragon.

No good reason to change things? Have you missed several threads about trying to convert Charizard and Gyrados to dragons? In this way, they keep their original typing, but gain an alternate typing as well.

There's no good reason why they should have dragon typing besides the whining from people who can't accept they aren't part dragon.

And why try to sound smart and hide you made a mistake?

Like Delta Species? I think it could work. They should look different though- e.g an Ice type Cyndaquil would have icicles instead of flames.

6 I'm very pro this. Some would argue against it for various reasons. But this sounds like a good idea and a way to shake up old pokemon the way hidden abilities did.

In other words; every Pokemon now has multiple forms.... umm, no thanks... I'm sick of forms.. they're overused and not unique any more, I honestly wouldn't be surprised if Xerneas and Yveltal get alternate forms....

That would change up the battle system if Pokémon had alternative forms. It would be a game of guessing and luck of which types a Pokemon actually are.
