I really don't get it. Why would you want to add in normal as a subtype ever? Why is it needed? It just adds an extra weakness to a pokemon who didn't need it, such as Sawsbuck. Grass already has enough weaknesses to contend with. Why slap on another? Or the fact that we have never had a pure flying type. I just don't get it... --- Let's just call him Rash. -- Stovepipe2 on Red being called Ash
Tornadus and Arceus with the flying plate are the only pure Flying types i agree with TC because Flying/Normal means that most Flying types don't resist Fighting, one of the most common attacking types. --- Official Ninetales of the Pokemon X and Y boards Now playing SSB games, SSF4AE, and other random stuff.
Personally, I think that GameFreak is choosing to have all these part-Normal Pokemon just to make the sudden influx of Normal/Fairy types stand out less. --- [Este mensaje fue borrado al deseo del dueno]
Agreed! All a Normal dual-typing accomplishes is making a Pokemon weak to Fighting attacks, and gives it a STAB for attacks that are super effective against exactly ZERO Pokemon. Oh yeah, it makes them invulnerable to Ghost attacks too - but who cares? That is not worth the trade for me.
I only like the Normal dual-typing with Flying Pokemon, since it seems traditional. I also like it when it makes creative sense, such as with Girafarig. But in general, Normal dual-typings suck IMHO.
