Case in point, there WILL NOT be a light type... at least, I seriously doubt the existence of a light-type Pokemon.

Dragon/ice for Reshiram would be nice. I've liked a dragon/ice type.
Also, i hope they make a legendary bug or a legendary poison type.
We have enough legendary fires,
legendary waters,
legendary thunders
legendary flyings,
BUT NO FREAKING BUG OR POISON.
We haven't had Legendary Fighting either.

I would. There is no need for a light-type and the types are reasonably evenly matched.

Keep in mind it is only a rumor. She could easily have been mistaken - it's happened before. Until Serebii officially confirms it, I'm taking it with a grain of salt ;)

Or Poke Beach ;)

That would be rather strange if he was half electric, though... He doesn't look like the type. (uh... pun?) I'd accept steel or dark but electric? Hmm, I must think this over.... Still, I wouldn't complain for a Dragon/Electric type xD

Well, its half machine, and it runs on...TADAH!! Electricity!
That would be the case when it indeed is a machine and its electric type.

They have never released a pure Ground legendary either, they need to get around to doing that.

Anyway, I have some logic onto why there wouldn't be a light type. Psychic is considered 'light'. Another thing, notice how its eyes are blue? I am guessing that it will be an ice type. Pokemon is a little too far into the game to be releasing new types into the Pokemon world. I mean, what are they going to say in Pokemon when they release a Light-Type into the show.

"Wow, I have never heard of a light-type Pokemon!" Ash exclaimed.

"Well, they have never been sighted anywhere except here in [Whatever new region is opened up]!"

And another thing, if you all are hoping for a light-type Pokemon, that means a new format for the Pokemon game. If a new format is released and the game engine will have to take into factor that a light-type exists. There will be little chance of tradeability (I know that isn't a word) with the other D.S games. So, you either leave your other Pokemon on the other game, or not have a light-type and accept that psychic is the light in Pokemon.

Isshu is the name of the region, iirc.

And I wouldn't rule out Pokemon being that weird. Like I said last time:

'Wow, all of a sudden Magnemite is made of STEEL?! Never!'

So... yeah. Pokemon is quite illogical.

The only reason they changed Magnemite to steel was because steel actually existed. Light does not, and that would take way too much planning, programming, and time. Pokemon are constantly being cranked out and as of yet, I can't see how they would add light-type moves in the small time span of a year. Writing, drawing, and animating is a long art, believe me, I am a movie director for Youtube.

... what? Light actually exists. x.x

I don't actually get your point in this whole thing. I know writing, drawing and animating take long, but you're acting like adding Light-type into the game is going to take ages - if they can create loads of new Pokemon, towns, items (probably) and everything in a year, I don't see how you can say a new type would take ages.

Also, they'll have a whole team working on something, not one person, so it'll be quicker than what you'd be able to do.

If they bring out new types, the game and show will get more confusing. Over 500 Pokemon really makes my brain hurt. But another type as well. I wouldn't be surprised if you read a news article that said, "Man's head has exploded in flames!"

Honestly adding a Light type would not be that hard at all. And I'm saying this even though I STRONGLY believe that they are NOT going to add them.

I would guess that a lot of protection-type moves would become light-type, such as Reflect and Light Screen (both of their descriptions say they create a barrier of light) as well as possibly Heal Bell and Safeguard, and maybe Morning Sun+Moonlight. Helping Hand is also a Light-ish move.. I'd imagine a lot of the protection/help teammates/happyjoyjoy-themed moves could make the switch.


New attacking moves could be made easily (I'm assuming they're adding new moves anyways, and Dark and Steel didn't have many moves when they were first released anyways). There are already some that sound light-type, like Luster Purge, but I don't think they'd want to mess up it being a STAB for Latios, unless the Lati twins switched to Light/Dragon instead of Psychic/Dragon, but I don't believe they would change legendaries like that.

Perhaps some of the cute fairy egg group Pokemon would make the type switch, like Blissey and maybe the Togepi-line who are always described as being incredibly helpful and good-natured.

I'd assume Light would take the place of normal for Togepi/Togetic/Togekiss and it might be a dual-type for Blissey (Normal/Light).

Other candidates include the Gardevoir line (Gardevoir and its preevos are always described as being very caring and emotionally sensitive to their trainer, Gardevoir even being willing to sacrifice its life for him/her)..

That being said, I do NOT think that Light will become a type, and I don't really want it to, either. Psychic sort of fits that niche right now with it sort of representing "Powers used for good" or w/e with Dark being, well, Dark. Psychic is Light and is also Neutral.

Also, what does a "Light" type look like? Ethereal (like Ghost?), angelic? Is it just made with a lot of white coloration? I think if there were a lot of them we'd get really bored of it, as it's a concept that doesn't seem to lend itself as much to creativity like the other types.. And the concept isn't that mixable. Like, I can't imagine a Light/Rock Pokemon, would it be a giant scary rock angel? Or Light/Grass, the angel plant! Unless the grass Pokemon was highly anthropomorphic like Roserade, I can't see that happening.

The way you are phrasing all of this, it would be like destroying psychic-type and normal-type Pokemon. They would have to come up with some new originals.

No, I meant light-type, not light as in Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet thing.

I do not work on my animations all alone. I have about 5 people working on voices, two people on animation, 7 people on ideas, and around 29 (my class) on retard inspiration (lol).

Adding another type to a Pokemon doesn't mean "destroying" the other type.

Magnemite is still Electric-type even though it became Electric/Steel, and Blissey would still be normal type if it became Normal/Light.
