The Light type - a more literal form of light compared to the Fairy type's supernatural form of light.

Super Effective against: Ghost (Ghosts don't play during the day), Steel (heated up during intense sunlight), Fairy (Likes to stay hidden away from human eyes), Dark (Nocturnal)

Not Very Effective against: Electric (similar in concept so they resist), Grass (Plants take in sunlight), Fighting (Nice tan!),

Zero Damage against: Ice (Ice is transparent so Light passes right through)

Weak to: Grass, Dark (Diurnal),

Resists: Light, Fire, Fairy (They don't want to expose themselves), Ghost

Type changes
Mega Manectric: Electric -> Electric/Light

Gigalith: Rock -> Rock/Light

Manaphy: Water -> Water/Light

Electivire: Electric -> Electric/Light

Volbeat/Illumise: Bug -> Bug/Light

Sunflora: Grass -> Grass/Light

Ninetails: Fire -> Fire/Light

Florges line: Fairy -> Fairy/Light

Rotom now has a Ghost/Light flashlight forme. Knows the move Light Flash, a Light type Vacuum Wave.

Ability Changes
Illuminate is now a Light type Refrigerate. It's field effect is the same.

Move Changes
Flash and Morning Sun are now Light type moves.

Most Electric type Pokemon can learn a few Light type moves. Any Pokemon with glowing body parts (Malamar, Lanturn, Ampharos) can learn Light type moves.

I think Fairy encompasses beings of light and goodness well enough.

Should they make Light Screen a Light move? I don't know.

I think the fact that they've only introduced one type since GSC is a good thing. There are already too many types. That's why several types (Poison, Psychic, Grass, Bug) are often pushed to borderline irrelevance.

Rocks are heated by the sun too and you don't see them being weak to Fire or anything like that, like Steel is.

I just don't get Steel's weakness to it.

All in all, like I said, it's not terrible...it's just not really necessary either.

What I don't get is how Electric is not SE on Steel. When I head Steel type was getting in, the very first type I figured it'd be weak to was Electric.

So it's SE against Dark and Dark is SE against it? That doesn't seem right. Overall, I don't really like the idea of the light type, doesn't solve any apparent problems.
