Are dual typed moves confirmed?

If there's ever dual types, pokemon will get so confusing.

Dark Psychic Fighting is awesome
also Ground,Water and electric would work too.


But... water is already a primary type. D=

Dual type moves are probably confirmed the rest of the rumors came true

If you'd actually read the Pokebeach leaks, they say that the parts that were most likely lies were Espurr/Meowstick and that you have two rivals, one of which gives you their starter in the postgame. Anything else is probably true.

Unfortunately, in the case of dualtype moves. I hope they don't pick an overpowered (just combine the multipliers!) or utterly pointless (it's like a move of one type that gives STAB to another type! Which really only means it's like a move of one type but the members of that type don't want it, and most other Pokemon don't even notice the alleged second type!) implementation.

They already exist with Curse in a way. I doubt that we will see moves of two types.

Seeing more ??? moves makes more sense. Conflicting/opposing energies tend to explode violently, attract each other, fuse, negate each other, or hybridize. To name a variety of possible. outcomes

Tri Attack. One could opine and state it be Ice and Fire and Electric at same time. Or the game devs could make it Normal.

LMAO at the idea that such a move would be 'utterly pointless'. In the right situation, changing the attacking type post STAB could completely redefine the right pokemon.

How would dual type moves even work? so if you use for sintance an electric/Water Move on a Water type, would it be neutral since electric is supereffective but water is resisted? It would just overcomplicate things if you ask me. How about taking an aproach like this. As an example I will break appart tri-attack, it will now deal 30 ice damage, 30 fire damage, and 30 electric damage, spread over 3 hits. Something like that seems more managable.

The leaker said some of the info in his leak was false to divert attention away from him and make it look more coincidental, so some unannounced stuff on the leak could still be fake. Here's hoping :)


Or so i said.
Who knows if I was telling the truth!


It is truly entertaining how nobody has reacted to your post on here.

Really? Yeah, the only things I would like to be false from those leaks are the starters types. Dark, Psychic and Fighting? Please no...

Exactly. Fighting, Fighting, and Fighting is the only way to go.
