How would you react if every type got a Stealth Rock type-move?

Topic title. Every type now has a move identical to Stealth Rock except of their own type (obviously). How do you react?

If they can be stacked, then I quit Pokemon forever.

If they can be stacked the game breaks itself. Not even a Steel/Fairy with levitate could survive.

Hehe. Stacking them didn't even cross my mind. SR is way too OP'ed.

If they can be stacked.... the game just got broke.

So, assuming they cannot and they are mutually exclusive... this would be fantastic. Hazards are a huge part of competitive Pokemon. I personally think they are a great addition and add a level of strategy to the game. The problem with Stealth Rock is that there is only the one and that is is typed damage. Either by itself is not bad, but when those two qualities are together, it causes some Pokemon to be hurt significantly more than others.

With many types of mutually exclusive hazards, each team can choose the type that helps them most. Rather than sun teams using a move that cripples opposing fire types that they don't mind so much, they can run a Grass Hazard to damage Rain and Sand starters. Every team would pick the hazard that helps them most, and individual Pokemon who are currently killed by SR would get new life as the fraction of teams using the moves that cripples them specifically would drop dramatically. Overall the hazards culture would still exist, but no individual would be ridiculously hampered by it in the metagame as a whole.

Between Ice SR and Fairy Pokemon, the Dragon type will go extinct. Even the mighty Garchomp will be brought to his knees.
