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.

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.

Assume Helioptile has 3 stages of evolution, and is based around Special Attack.
Now, assume the 3rd stage of evolution has massive Special Attack and abysmal Attack.
Now, assume the 3rd stage of evolution is still Normal/Electric.

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.

Normal/Ghost would be really good and Normal/Psychic is pretty solid
also, STAB return is pretty good for Sawsbuck or better yet STAB double-edge. --- #RememberTheManticore - SMITE "I'll bait you and outsmart you" - nobody important
