Is there ever going to be a way to get the type gems?

Acrobatics Flying Gem...

no.

Fakeout with Normal Gem is pretty nifty though, if you're Hitmonlee (unburden)

Probably OR/AS or a future PGL Attraction.

I just think there's a reason why normal gem is the only one they left in this game.

Acrobatics, with the way it calculated damage, just turned into a nuke after a flying gem was used for it. And combine that with the fact that Hawlucha gets it in conjunction with Unburden and then you have a problem there.

GF balance around doubles, where physical attackers face a lot of issues with Intimidate and WoW being everywhere.

They nerfed the gems to x1.3 so idk why they removed them

The reason they needed a nerf was because of Dragon Gem Draco Meteor, also you could do random s*** like Psychic Gem Zen Headbutt Lucario to OHKO the standard Hitmontop and also Gem boosted Hidden Powers

It still escapes me why they thought a one-time use item needed to be nerfed to 1.3. Apart from Acrobatics, they served only two really useful purposes, those being ability related or making a quick nuke out of an attack in 3v3 or VGC formats, where battles were both over quickly and item clause was more problematic.

On the flip side, the nerf was one way to squelch outcry in regards to their absence.
An infant sea turtle is actually capable of killing an adult African bull elephant. It does, however, require a substantial amount of surprise.
