Hi Flintiex

>>34393288
And why is that anon? Care to explain?

>>34393293
Uhh, no?
Flaming butt head duck maybe a stretch
But Parasect is nothing but a shell of its former self and parasites have taken over it, making it somewhat a zombie.
Shinx line should've been /Dark-type from the get go. No, not because it's black, don't be racist
And Pidove line are domesticated birds who accumulated to living with humans
>>
>>34393279
We already have retypings.

Magnemite and Magneton - Electric to Electric/Steel.in Gen II

Clefairy family, Snubbull family, and Togepi - Normal to Fairy

Togetic and Togekiss - Normal/Flying to Fairy/Flying

14 Fairy-types (too many to list here) - Had Fairy added on as secondary typing
>>
>>34393322
I meant more so, re-typings where they didn't introduce a whole new type(s)
>>
>>34393314
Okay Flint but why did you make Illumise Bug/Ghost?
These typings are from Neo X/Y btw. Shit is a goldmine all the way from Poison Heal Bulbasaur down to Refrigerate Avalugg.
>>
>>34393314
magby has nothing to do with psychic
luxio has nothing to do with darkness or underhanded fighting except using biting moves which every fucking quadruped furry pokemon does

Honestly! Makes me enjoy XY so much more. I actually like the shitty grammar and all the friendly rivals being sassy
>>

Parasect is the bug *and* the parasite, not just the bug
if you want to change it to bug/ghost or whatever, you may as well take away everything that was originally unique about it, like spore

why do people get so upset when someone suggest Luxray line should be Electric/dark,
not like Dark actually means Dark its called "evil" type in japan,
inkay doesn't really seem like a dark type
if anything should be pure psychic till it evolve.
>>
>>34393360
Wait, so he's responsible for Neo XY? nice
Not that far into the games yet, but last I looked at the spreadsheet, didn't he make Whismur line Fairy/Ground?

Fairy/Poison was the original one before he got told he was a fucking retard.
>Mega Potions
>>
>>34393279

>>
>>34393399
Inkay has the generic mind control thing going and evolves into one of the more outright evil pokemon in the series
The Luxray line has nothing resembling evilness from what I see
>>
>>34393330
>parasect isn't actually dead
As of gen 7 this isn't really a requisite for ghost types anymore, with stuff like sensu oricorio, decidueye, dhelmise and potentially lunala getting the typing more because they have a relation to shadows or spirits than being spirits themselves.
Still, I like parasect's current typing. All mushroom mons so far have been part grass.

One I always wanted to see was magmar and electabuzz lines getting a secondary typing to form a more consistent trio with jynx. Electric/fighting and Fire/Dark or Fire/Poison sound alright for me.
>>
>>34393279
Look at fucking Slurpuff’s stats.
Holy shit.
>dialogue
>>
>>34393359
The point of it knowing Spore involves the japanese name for Spore "Mushroom Spore" which explains why only mushroom Pokemon seem to learn it.
I don't think typing change would make it lose Spore, simple enough.
Although, I would admit that Grass/Ghost would be more fitting over Bug/Ghost since the mushroom itself is taking over. The bug is dead, the parasite is completely dominant now.
So it would make sense to have the stats fit appropriately.
>>
>>34393429
Don't forget Luvdisc -> Alomomola
>>
>>34393450
Actually bug type makes more sense for a mushroom than grass type does since fungi are more closely related to animals than plants and they have chitinous cell walls.
>>
>>34393425
Magmar and Electabuzz would have interesting typings to fit with Jynx.
I can't help thinking of Articuno, Moltres and Zapdos with them though.
Are you thinking of Fire/Poison and Electric/Fighting because that way they would all be weak/strong against each other?
That would be a great relationship.
>>
>>34393279
Regional variants will be the only way Game Freak ever does retyping unless they add a new type.

A-Muk isn't very evil
"While it's unexpectedly quiet and friendly, if it's not fed any trash for a while, it will smash its Trainer's furnishings and eat up the fragments. "

also Luxray Japanese name means X ray tiger
Luxray being Electric/Dark makes more sense then Mawile being a steel type
>>
>>34393470
Yeah, but going by GameFreak's tradition, they don't really follow that sort of mindset.
Paras, Parasect (Bug/Grass), Shroomish (Grass), Breloom (Grass/Fighting) , Foongus (Grass/Poison), Amoongus (Grass/Poison), Morelull (Grass/Fairy), and Shiinotic (Grass/Fairy).
With the added fact that Spore (japanese name "Mushroom Spore") is a grass type move, it seems kinda moot that they prefer it under that category.
Then again, I cannot definitely state that this is fact though, they can always say something else. I can only point out a pattern that I can see.

Dark types have a common theme of either unruly, difficult to raise or control, dangerous, malicious, and only an option for only veteran, cruel, or similarly minded trainers.
They aren't easy, rarely are they pleasant or friendly, but they are always something that must be trained with even more diligence and certain tact to keep them in line.
I dunno, I just feel like if I was in the Pokemon World... Dark Types are the last Pokemon I would ever want to train due to their... proclivities.

>>34393279
all of these are retarded, nonsensical, autistic or all of the above

The only retyping that should happen is Mawile to Dark/Fairy
It has no business being steel, it doesn't learn steel, moves, it isn't made out of metal, it learns ONLY dark moves, it is known as the "deceiving" pokemon which is exactly the nature of most dark types
Compare it to the other Steel/Fairies, Magearna and Klefki are both made out of metal
>>
>>34393555
>sweats poison

But really, my point was that it doesn't need to be on the same level of edgy as Malamar to be a Dark Type.

Also,
>It has eyes which can see through anything. It spots and captures prey hiding behind objects.
>When its eyes gleam gold, it can spot hiding prey--even those taking shelter behind a wall.
On about the same level as Umbreon, I'd say.

That was the idea, yes. I even though poison for magmar could work since magma can sometimes have acidic properties and it learns smog/clear smog/belch, but then again the line doesn't really look poisonous at all. Maybe dark would be a better fit considering they burn forests to feel more comfortable.

oh fuck this shit, by this reasoning Blastoise should be part steel too because its canons are made of metal
it is exactly the same deal, they use it as weapons and made of steel
If anything, dark is more descriptive of its nature than steel being just a part of it
>>
>>34393555
Where is that said or pointed out for Luxray?
The biggest aspects pointed out in its Pokedex have seemed to be how its x-ray vision allows it to detect prey (which isn't uncommon for Pokedex entries to talk about prey), and seeking out its lost young.
Nothing I've found has shown it saying that it will willingly attack its trainer, what have you found that states this?

the moss grows on regigigas it isn't part of regigigas

>>
>>34393314
Magby:
Take a look at Magmar and tell me that neanderthal would know how to use Psybeam or any psychic powers, you dumb fuck. Psychic is a burst of telekinetic force which Magmar might be able to do since he's a special attacking pyro motherfucker but Psybeam is a straight up psychic ray beam.

Parasect:
The mushroom parasite, while not controlling the host, could possibly be a ghost type. The way the parasite targets its prey is ghost-like since it can camouflage in the forest, but Parasect (the host) itself is not and the parasite has to abide by the host's abilities.

Luxio:
Biting and gnawing are basic wild animal functions. Anyone can be taught how to steal too, just look at how many are able to do it: https://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Thief_(move) . This doesn't mean it's a dark type, that's just what wild animals do. Fucking racist.

I hit the word limit doing Tranqull so I'm not going to bother, but you and I both know your excuse is bullshit.
>>
>>34393608
Umbreon evolved as a result of exposure to the moon's waves. It hides silently in darkness and waits for its foes to make a move. The rings on its body glow when it leaps to attack.

Umbreon fights with sneak attacks aka dirty that is why it's dark type.

If they really wanted to make luxray a dark type
The generation they do it would have add a pokedex entry fitting so

Im sure there was a turned into fairy pokemon that doesn't make 100% sense being a fairy before

But right now luxray fits being pure electric type
It wouldn't help luxray too much anyway
Luxray suffers same way electivire and elektross do
Slow and dont have power to back it up
>>
>>34393616
Fuck you. Blastoise should actually have been retyped to Water/Steel.
>>
>>34393616
I think the difference is that Blastoise isn't attacking foes with the actual steel, it's firing water and whatever the fuck else out of them, but that's about the same as if it was firing it out of its mouth
Meanwhile Mawile's horns is basically its only way of fighting, to the point that all its battle sprites has it facing the opponent backwards so that the horns are between it and its opponent
>>
>>34393679
I don't give a fuck about Luxray but Umbreon is a shitty excuse of a Darl type. Tons of Pokémon are ambush predators and not Dark. Gumshoos focuses way more on the aspect than Umbreon and is not Dark.

>>34393537
>Trash Wormadam is fairy
Nice.
>>
>>34393830
When it finds a trace of its prey, it patiently stakes out the location...but it's always snoozing by nightfall.

It doesn't do it at night so it's not a dark type. Ambushing at night only using sneak attacks, or ganging up on a target are what dark types usuallly do.
>>
>>34394156
>It doesn't do it at night so it's not a dark type.
Implying literal darkness equals Dark is almost as bad as saying black equals Dark.
> ganging up on a target are what dark types usuallly do.
Except Umbreon doesn't do that.

Gorebyss is Psychic because of its moveset in contrast with Huntail's.

Did you not see the or? Dark types only have to focus one one of the things said. Umbreon ambushes and does sneak attacks at night in the dark. Darkness isn't what the dark type is mainly about its about doing things considered evil/sneaky.

>Megazard - Fire/Dragon with Y design, X becomes some special anime/event only variant like ash-greninja
MCY is great as Fire/Flying. The whole thing is about putting more emphasis on the flying aspect. With a sleeker body, larger wings, hand wings and so on. No reason to make it Dragon. X is shit but that's not what the thread is about
>Oddish line - Grass/Dark
Bad. Gloom is all about stench and Vileplume's most noteworthy feature is scattering toxic pollen all around.
>Doduo line - Flying/Ground, loses ability to learn Fly and similar moves that actually require flying, gets new ability that keeps it grounded in exchange for some sort of positive boost (STAB moves hit 3 times?)
Pure Normal would be fine. Nothing about it screams Ground.
>Gastly line - pure Ghost
Gengar yes. But Gastly and Haunter are strongly tied to their gaseous state and Gastly suffocating shit with its gases is important to the concept, so no.
>Cubone line - Ground/Dark
Makes no sense at all. Marowak is just battle hardened. It isn't driven by revenge or sadistic or anything like that.
>Weezing - Poison/Psychic (increased intelligence from additional head, gives Koga a shitty excuse to stack his gym with psychic types)
Pretty bad reasoning. Implying all it takes to be a Psychic type is to have multiple heads is pretty weak. The focus isn't on how the heads communicate with each other like with actual multi-headed Psychics, but more so on implied mutations. If you have a problem with the trainers in the gym change their roster instead. Now you're just making a second Psychic gym in Kanto.
>Pilotoed - Water/Fairy
Why? Seem pretty reachy. Pure Water is fine.

The rest are either inoffensive or better.

>Umbreon ambushes and does sneak attacks
The thing is that many pokémon are ambush predators and very few of them are Dark. Vaporeon blends into the water and uses that to catch prey but nobody in their right mind would say it should be Dark.
>Darkness isn't what the dark type is mainly about its about doing things considered evil/sneaky.
Not as much sneaky as it is about being unfair.

I'm starting to think people don't really understand typings, and think color = type half the time.

Then Garbodor should be Fairy aswell

What next? Ice Punch Gyarados?

It learns one fighting move by level up in Gen 1 and it's because it's a throw, which is what those bugs do IRL. That's not a comparison.
>>
Ninetales should be Fire/Ghost (everything mentions it's ghost power)
Typhlosion - Fire/Ground (It is a volcano)
>>
>>34393683
Murkrow, Purloin, Liepard and Sableye (bar Mega) fight dirty aswell. It's not for any reason that they have Prankster ability.

Is this the brainlet thread?

Doduo line made sense to me as an ironic grounded flying type, and since it gets drill run I figured why not. I will admit its a bit of a stretch though, i mostly just hate the redundancy of having 4 normal/flying families, especially when one doesnt even have wings

Oddish being nocturnal and based on mandrakes was my reasoning for it being dark. There's two other grass/poison families and pokemon like butterfree and paras can use poison powder without being poison typed, no reason why vileplume couldnt. Gloom being horrifically smelly doesnt automatically make it poisonous, its such a negative trait i could see it being dark too.

I realize now that poison/psychic weezing is not only too much of a stretch, it would be horribly broken ingame. Kogas gym already practically is a second psychic gym, psychic weezing or no

Most Pokedex entries state Marowak becomes vicious amd aggressive when it evolves, so i see no reason why it cant be dark. Bone and death themes seem to be common with dark types anyways
