What do you want from next gen when it comes this type? Day 1; Normal Type.

Be it glass cannons, or trick room tanks, we all have Pokemon we enjoy using. Add to that we also have hopes for certain types, be they certain new type combos, or new chances with used type combos. lets talk about what we want next gen when it comes to certain types. Maybe your looking for a certain creature to be turned into that type? This is the place, lets talk.

Today we are starting with Normal type. Figured it be an interesting place to start since with the new Fairy type out there, Normal has lost some of its numbers. Add to that 6 gens in with new type combos, its becoming harder to figure out, what is it about Normal types that make them Normal?

Boomburst Meloetta
A 560+ BST pure Normal type, which is viable in OU
A early route rodent as good as Zigzagoon

Boomburst is ridiculously stupid. 140bp, Sound based so hits through subs. 10pp, no negative effects,...wtf? It shouldnt have existed as it is in the first place. And I hate it that the excuse is "Limited distribution", because it it ridiculous even by those standards.

It also hits nothing super effectively. and there are only 2 who can really abuse it. (Exploud and Chatot) The other users either have better options, or are not good attckers to begin with.

I know I'd like to see more normal special moves both a few weak to mid range ones with better distribution as well as a few other decent options.

Far as actual pokemon go I think a classic white sheet ghost could make for a fun normal/ghost type.

make Normalize in line with Aerilite/Pixalite/Refrigerate. Change a move's type to normal add in that 30% boost and now factor in STAB. Delcatty is the only poke I can think of who can use it. Plus Delcatty's BST is so bad that potentially huge buff it would get is nullified to a good extent.

A Boomburst user with decent special attack and at least 101 speed
