Here's my interpretation on the "dual moves" rumor:

#1ManBearFoxIIIPosted 8/2/2013 2:41:14 AM
Instead of dual typing, I think (read: hope) the moves will work like Psyshock does, meaning more of a dual property move, where, say a move is categorized as a special attack, but does physical damage; This would allow for special sweepers to not be walled by special walls such as Blissey and Snorlax, but still keep their focus on special attacks, and vice versa for physical attackers.

A new wave of attacks with these properties would add a new element (hyuck) of strategy to the game, still allowing for more coverage options, but without being as broken as most previously anticipated from having actual double-typed moves. I think it'd be very interesting to see how move sets would be tailored to countering certain physically/specially defensive threats, further layering the already deep multiplayer. What say you, GameFaqs?

I was dreading yet another "Type A move that deals Type B damage" topic, so I'm relieved.

More moves like Psyshock would definitely be alright with me, and I hope it's either that or a move that deals multiple hits of two different types, since that's the only non-stupid way I can think of to incorporate two types in one move.

I assume that's just his way of saying "Hah", as in, "Haha, I just said 'element' in a discussion about Pokemon types."

I doubt the leaker would word it that way and feel the need to mention it if it were just more attacks like Psyshock.

I still want Tri-Attack to deal 30fire/30electric/30ice damage XD.

From my recollection, Pokebeach was rather skeptical of the wording anyways, as it was more vague than outright stating "dual type attacks", which is where my assumptions come from.

I was thinking along the lines of that instead of dual-type attacks you would be given the option of Combination moves. Where you would select 2 moves instead of 1 with the drawback of having to rest after that turn (kinda like hyper beam)

Hmm.. That is also an interesting take on the subject. I can't help but feel, however, that such a system would become dubbed as overpowered quite quickly, as tanks wouldn't mind a short rest (especially with access to recovery moves), and more importantly, final attacks would become a lot more deadly.
