How would you feel if Cut were changed to Steel type?

This was just an interesting thought that I had, since it might be hard to get coverage moves against fairy types earlier on without a fire-type. I could actually see Gamefreak doing something like it to balance against fairy just a little bit.

I doubt that it would make any impact on the metagame whatsoever, but it would provide a wide-distribution move for use on rock and fairy types for early in-game play.

Or perhaps it'd be pointless either way. Thoughts?

You know if HMs weren't all Normal type like Surf and Rock Smash they would see more use. Cut being Grass or Steel type would make it great for early game coverage. As of now there's no point in using it over other mid-level Normal type attacks like Slash or Slam.
Love me long time.

Definitely making a thread on this.

That would be interesting, and potentially very useful early game for dealing with the inevitable cave dwelling trainers who have mostly rock types.
