Because it makes you shiver?

Aggred. It should be dark type.

Not changing this sig until Sigilyph becomes UU or OU.

It almost used to be the signature move of the Gastly line.

In RBY, the only other pokemon that learned the move was... Jynx... Yeaah >_>

There are three types of people in the world: people that can count, and people that can't.

I was wondering that too. And why on Earth Bite is Dark type but Scratch is Normal type? I find scratching as underhanded as biting in a brawl.

What makes Tri Attack a Normal move?
What makes Pursuit a Dark move? Same with Beat Up.
What makes Mega Punch a Normal move?
What makes Cut a Normal move but Fury Cutter and X-Scissor Bug moves?

...we could probably play this game for awhile.

Go to Gamestop, buy a Steam card, and use it to purchase Ys Origin. You won't be disappointed.
Don't reboot PCs that you cannot access.

No, trust me, it's a Ghost move.

Do not censor my voice, or soften my unit.
They must remain loud and rigid, respectively.

I can answer Beat Up. Most Dark type moves are underhanded and dirty ways of fighting. Ganging up on your opponent to beat him/her up is not a very honorable move, now is it?

And Tri Attack, well, it would be like 3 types at once, so they went with the type that represents neutrality, I think.

Alright, Beat Up is the most readily explained, but Tri Attack is not explainable by types. We knew they were thinking of 'canceling' them all out, but we don't see that anywhere else in the franchise that I can think of. I suppose Lugia may have represented the same concept in the second movie.

Pursuit was probably made purposefully as Dark for Dark mons, it was made when they invented the type and wanted to nerf Psychics

Bite was Normal-type in gen 1
