We all know there are some types that need more pokemon. I think I might die if water gets anymore pokemon. I mean seriously I have 3 boxes of water pokemon in my PC because I completed the pokedex. I really think we need more Fire and Electric Pokemon. More Fire pokemon need to be encountered earlier in the game. But that is a little off topic....

Anyway what type(s) do you think need more pokemon/type combos???

Definately! There could also be an improvement on Ghosts. And their should be some fire types you can catch from the getgo

I agree with early fire types. And I think Ice/Psychic needs to be given a whirl. And there needs to be more than 3 dragon types for each gen. :U

Good Topic, Blaziken_is_Kool...& the type/type combos I think should get more attention 5th Gen are;

1. Electric = It's already been stated above & I will also add that I want this cause I only like Luxray & Raichu ...I need more Electric Type pokemon I will actually think is cool...
2. Steel = Just not enough of them, period...even with the 4th Gen factored in...
3. Fire = Already been stated above & I also will add that there isn't enough plain Fire Types...
4. Dragon = Just cause they simply don't do enough variety for this type & Kingdra was battle wise a bad, bad idea...
5. Ice = Even after the 3rd Gen bloom of Ice Type pokemon, there are just not enough interesting Ice Types for me...& it's my favorite type...
6. Grass = Cause there is simply not enough good ones to choose from that aren't Starter Pokemon...that = lame...
7. Poison = Not many interesting plain Poison Type pokemon...& want to see Eevee evolve into pokemon of this type...
8. Ghost = Not many useful Ghost Type pokemon & there needs to be something to replace Gengar due to it's typing...
9. Dark = same reason as stated for the Steel Type...
10. Electric/Flying = so much potiential here & there is only 1 of them...
11. Fire/Flying = same as Electric/Flying...
12. Water/Grass = love the typing & there are so many ideas that could go to this typing...
13. Water/Bug = would love to see some kind of water spider...
14. Ice/Flying = same as Electric/Flying...
15. Dark/Flying = very nice Type Combo, would love to see more...
16. Dark/Ghost = there is only 2 & if they even made those 2, they can make more...
17. Fighting/Psychic = haven't though of anything that actually looks good yet, maybe make another one to fix this I hope...
18. Rock/Flying = Aerodactyl needs some friends already...need more of this Type Combo is what I mean...
19. Rock/Dark = It's a good Type Combo & I want to see more of it...

That's it for me...

I completely agree with most of those. Except Dark/Rock. Would be interesting, but not great in battle. I can see the evil team using this type. MOAR ELECTRIX PLIS.

I have one word that can sum up my desires: hybrids. Why not give us all the type combinations possible? I mean, they gave us a Normal/Water last gen... {bibarel}

Specifically, I would love to see Bug balanced as a better playable type overall. And while Pinsir and Heracross are very cool, they probably don't need an evolution chain, grudgingly. However, while there already is a Bug/Water, it was ruined by evolving into a Bug/Flying. Some possible types that would be nice to see with Bugs (more balanced ones, that is): Bug/Dark, Bug/Electric (lightningbug, anyone? :P), Bug/Fire (you can't say it wouldn't be funny to have a firefly...), Bug/Ghost (without Wonder Guard, that is), and more Bug/Water. Maybe they should put (gasp) a Bug/Psychic!

As for Dark types, they just need more. Overall, one of the types fewest in number (even with ballooning in Gens III/IV). I would especially love to see a Dark/Psychic.

Dragon types should branch out more also. Dragon/Fire, Dragon/Grass, Dragon/Water (which Gyarados could be if Gamefreak got it right...). Kind of stinky how some of the best Pokes (Dragonite!) are a rare type and even harder to get.

Electric types also suffer from having too few. Hybrids or otherwise...

Fighting and Fire both have few choices. Would be nice to see more (although, admittedly, Fighting has gotten cooler each Gen)... Whereas Fire is definitely shorted out.

Flying has plenty, but I can't honestly explain why there aren't any pure-Flying types.

Ghost still needs a little work, IMO. Even with Giratina and Rotom saving the type, there are too few and they're great annoyers.

Grass needs to be better. Balance wise, not numbers. Although some new Grass hybrids did make it better in Gen III.

Ground could use more Pokes as well. Seems to me that it's a great type, but more Electrics and so many Waters mean more Grounds need to balance. Plus, the inevitable Electric/Ground type would be amazing!

Ice has way too few. True, some great hybrids, but it's not really a good type the way it is now. The same could be said for Steel and Rock types.

Poison could also use some help in that department. Electric/Poison sounds really cool to me, I don't know about anyone else...

Normal, Psychic and Water have way too many in their ranks, not to mention most of the legendaries (Psychic). If they make many more besides new hybrids, I'm seriously going to consider not getting Gen V games...

Sorry for the marathon, but these are certainly my opinions on the matter.

AEPMT ;) :P :D :mrgreen:

Wow, seems a lot of people have the same opinions as me. I think somebody should tell game freak about psypoke. Game freak would get a lot of great ideas from topics like this.

Anyway I strongly aggre Electric should have more pokemon and better combos. Luxray and Manectric are kool and Zapdos has a cool type combo but that is about the best of Electric in my opinion.

Fire definitly needs more too. The same as electric, needs more type combos.

I aggree with water/bug too. I got all excited with Surskit until it evolved.

Like said, Dragons need more too. I think dragon needs more average pokemon. Like all dragon pokemon are really strong i think we just need ones that are more common and less powerful

Oh yeah...forgot to mention Manectric...probably cause I never use it but it does look cool to me...

This exactly why I made the suggestion in the first place...exactly...& yes, Dragons could benefit from not having all upper class pokemon...maybe throw some middle class pokemon in there...

I think we need some more steel types. (And a lot more steel moves) There are barely any steel moves compared to water or grass or something.

@GollyGreg = Very True...

@Plusle = Also Very True...for pre National Dex Fire wise & in general Ice & Dark wise...

I agree with this very much...Grass doesn't get any real justice I mean it only works well on 2 types & works bad on about around 7-9 of them for whatever the reason may be...that just isn't correct...

Ohh, i forgot about ice-types. they DEFINETLY need more GOOD ice type pokemon. I am a huge fan of ice and i was looking to replace my glaceon with some other ice pokemon. since this is a battle tower team i couldn't use legendaries, so basically i was left with weavile and jynx. I just ended up keeping glaceon. My point is, ice really needs more good pokemon.

I think there's something I like about ice Pokemon as Sneasel and Jynx are two of my favorite Pokemon. xD

I wouldn't mind if they were a bit better though.

I think they could have a lot of fun with the types

water/fire

ice/electric

bug/ghost

dragon/ice

electric/ground

or they could just set up some types to piss you off like trying to beat a quagsire with jolteon (dosn't work)

ground/flying (against electric)

dark/fighting (against psychic)

normal/ghost (against ghost)

and just for fun I just had a stupid epiphany, what if legendary pokemon had three types?

We need more Bug Types, good bug types. Having a few more Electric or ground type Pokemon would be good too.

One combo we need is Fire/Dragon. I thought it'd be one of the first Dragon combo's, but apparently not. Also, an Electric/Bug would be interesting.

For the longest time i thought Charizard was a fire/dragon. I was pretty disapointed when i found out it wasn't.

How about Fire/Bug, i mean seriously? FIREFLY. or how abouta LIGHTNING BUG.

Or how about those that should've been

water/dragon {gyarados}

bug/dragon {flygon}

We were SUPPOSED to have a pure Flying, according to GameFreak back in the earlier stages of DP {chatot} but I was very disappointed when I finally caught one..

We need some sort of Grass/Dragon. It just sounds like a cool-looking Pokémon.
Also, a Fire/Psychic (supporting pyrokinetics).

All of these are good type combo's. Grass/Dragon sounds great, i think Dragon type combos really need to expand further than Dragon/Flying. Kingdra and Flygon/Garchomp were a bit different. Grass types need to get BETTER pokemon. Not MORE, but better. Aside from the grass starters and Roserdae there really aren't many great grass pokemon.

We need more dragons people. i think these would be cool combos:
dragon/fire
dragon/electric
dragon/ice
dragon/dark the black dragon from the movie "how to train a dragon" gave me this idea and looks cool

Really, they just need to make all the types + dragon, including dragon + dragon, because you can never have enough dragon.

Electric/poison sounds cool, I imagine some kind of plasma creature. Only please God give it levitate.

Fire/Ice would be cool, or hot, depends on its mood I suppose.

I think Electric/Grass would be cool, giving electric a type neutrality against the hated ground types and giving grass an offensive advanatage, or atleast neutrality, over most of its weaknesses.

I think most of the ghost types have been failures. They need to make one like gengar without the unreasonably tacked on poison disadvantage. If they keep making dumb-looking, crappy battling ghosts like they have it's gonna suck.

A Flying/Ground type... They must invent it simply to prove their own imagination. Rock/Electric too.

They need to make more elemental type combos outside of legendary. Fire/Flying, Electric/Bug, Fire/Psychic, Fire/Ghost, Ice/Ghost, Fire/Electric, all would be cool.

Finally, they must make a Bug/Steel type, because they're my favorite offensive a defensive types and it would be hilarious.

Edit: Forgot about scizor, nvm.

Forretress. Wormadam.

Somebody else also mentioned Bug/Ghost, which we have too as Shedinja.

Can we all PLEASE verify that type combinations exist before posting about how GameFreak should make them? Every thread about new type combinations always comes down to this.
