With the rise of Ghost Pokemon, Normal types might be more useful in gen VI...

With Steel no longer resisting Ghost, the only Pokemon that can block ghosts now are normal, and dark types. Thats kind of big.

I wouldn't be surprised if Ghost Pokemon will rule this Meta Game, and depending on the moves Ghost gets it might be the second coming of gen 1 Psychic.

Maybe..

But I can see Normal, and Dark types becoming more popular this gen as a result.

Normal is useless and always will be.

With the Ghost buff and the Fighting nerf, maybe Snorlax can get back into OU.

Depends if we get some good normal types this gen. Otherwise, the only normal types with an advantage is sudicide Staraptor and tank Snorlax. Chaney and Blissey are just there for support.

Normal was one of the best types in Gen 1. Your argument is invalid.

Ghost type moves may see slightly more use.

Ghost pokemon are overall meh, though.
