"Primary" and "Secondary" typing? worth having?

just add the multipliers up for anything not neutral. it results in a number and theres the x weakness/resist.

honestly the mechanics of the numbers don't even matter. just the fact that the first type means more than the second type. so yes, the normal/flying types all need to switch places etc.

The dual-type moves is also interesting and could run on the same type of mechanics for STABs, up to a whole huge number of damage, or nearly zero depending on the type matchups.

guaranteed not to happen this gen, but there's always next time.
...and bababooey to y'all

Sableye is primarily a zombie like, physically stable creature, thus primary Dark and only secondary Ghost.
Spiritomb is an evil spirit, tough physically unstable, thus primarily Ghost, secondary Dark(evil)

Wow this entire time I thought they were both Ghost/Dark. >_>

Which I didn't like because Dark/Ghost rolls off the tongue easier...and sounds cooler (it even makes grammatical sense).
In the age of information, ignorance is a choice.
