New type: Art

#1ThatKippPosted 10/25/2013 3:10:11 PM(edited)
New Pokemon that belong to it:
Traceon (new Eeveelution), palette Pokemon, canvas Pokemon, easel Pokemon, paintbrush Pokemon (evolves into paint roller), inkwell Pokemon (evolves into paint bottle, then paint can), abstract statue Pokemon, etc.

Retconned Pokemon:
Arbok (patterns vary by in-game region)
Persian (art on its head)
Muk (what happens when you're in art class in kindergarten and you mix all the colors)
Porygon (it's 3D digital art)
Slowking (the crown is art)
Unown (letters)
Corsola (look at it, it's modern art)
Smeargle (you seriously need a reason for this one?)
Beautifly (its wings have art on them)
Gardevoir (wearing a dress, dresses count as art)
Delcatty (seems like an art-y pokemon)
Claydol (it's a clay doll.... prehistoric art)
Chimecho (it's a decorated bell, that's art)
Kricketune (music is art)
Mismagius (wearing a dress, dresses count as art)
Conkelder (holding two pillars, those are art)
Leavanny (sews stuff, that's art)
Darmanitan-Z (looks like a statue, statues are art)
Cofagrigus (a sarcophagus is art)
Gothitelle (wearing a dress, dresses count as art)
Vanilluxe (culinary art)
Escavalier (armor is art, go to an art museum and you can find armor)
Chandelure (furniture is art)
Meloetta (music is art, dancing is also art)
Vivillion (patterns vary by real-world region)
Aromatisse (has Matisse in the name)
Slurpuff (culinary art)
Gourgeist (jack-o-lanterns are art)

Art-type is super-effective against Steel, Fairy

Weak to Poison, Water

Immune to Fairy
Resists Fighting

Painters now use primarily Art-type Pokemon
Art-type Pokemon are seen helping out at galleries

This is better than sound type.

Please....don't. I'm already very displeased with the addition of the Fairy type.

Toph: It's upside-down, isn't it?

This topic fails. A terrible idea, with a bad name, poor logic and nonsensical type changes.

Plus, new types don't get added for the sake of it, they are added to balance the game. Dragons were OP, so Fairy was introduced.
Experience beats bias, but words on the Internet are meaningless.

I actually do like this idea.

But it's feeling a bit blue on design.
