    Default 2 type attacks?

    Would attacks having two types work? (like blaze kick being fire/fighting)
    Please comment!

    Go and calculate the damage for a double stab Fire/flying attack in sunlight against a dryskin parasect.

    Then comeback and tell me this isn't broken.

    All this and more on my tumblr!

    The problem is it simply doesn't work for working out the type weaknesses. It would overcomplicate the game to a degree where people would get infuriated.

    Anyway, this sort of thread has been done too many times before for me to do a better argument, so good day to you all.

    151 Pokemon in the Kanto dex. 1 of them is an event Pokemon.

    Far too complicated to really work out.

    Hmmm.... I have a Fire/Fighting Pokemon, and he's using a Fire/Fighting move. I'm using it against a Rock/Bug. So.. half damage on Rock and super effective on Bug, so that's null, wait, Fighting's super effective against Rock but half on Bug, but I've got STAB twice, wait is that 1.5 x 1.5, or something else?

    BRAIN BREAK.

    It'd also be too broken, as I point out with double STAB.

    This theory is similar to the paradox of having three types, since many Pokemon would be valid for such a thing, e.g. Heracross: Bug/Fighting/Flying, Beedrill/Dustox: Bug/Poison/Flying.

    It wouldn't necessarily over-complicate the system since this is quite easy to achieve in programming, but it will certainly alter the game to a degree where it won't be as enjoyable as before. Nintendo certainly wouldn't want to jeopardize their profits simply because of an non-business-oriented individual from some fanbased forum.

    But don't be disappointed, this can be done. All Nintendo would really need to do is tweak the battle algorithm so it includes these checks. However, the game will be unbalanced from my understanding since only certain moves will be dual-typed. You can't necessarily kill two birds with one stone in this case. Maybe you'll make your own rehashed version of a Pokemon game that incorporates this concept =).

    Things are good the way they are. This would only make things uneccessarily complicated.

    Yes. I have a problem beating paras, so a fire/flying move by ho-oh is especially appreciated.

    No, it's just like Triple Type. One side will become beyond Uber and the other side would bearly even sting.

    If you can't beat a paras with ho-oh (or any other fire or flying type) there's something wrong...............

    I think it would make the moves too powerful, like ~Spacial_Rendation~ said, its like the triple type thingo... I want a challenge when battling, this would make it too easy..

    Probably. But you can never tell with this forum. The things some people have said and meant it..............

    Trust me. Some people on this forum have made claims just as bad as that and meant it e.g. "all non-damaging moves suck because in the series they only use attacking moves" or "evolutions ruin standalone pokemon such as Yanma and Tangela".
    Its hard to tell if people are actually joking when they say things on this forum.

    You can usually tell by the grammar and spelling of the statement.

    Hmmmmmm. More than one type attacks could make for some interesting battles. But of course there would be a lot of complications if an attack was super effective times 4. EG. Maccargo hit by a move with type water and ground. But it is an interesting concept. I would like to see it in some games in the future. Especially with tri attack.
    Looking for event pokemon and shinies. Send a message if you are interested in trading them for ho-oh, lugia, jirachi or mew.

    One, it would actually be ice.

    Two, you don't seem to understand the possible problems with having a move with three different types.

    It involves the type chart, and it wouldn't be pretty. It would also be insanely broken.

    There is. You attach [/sarcasm] to the end of your post.

    And quite frankly, if I take your post as sarcasm it doesn't make sense.

    I've actually always wanted this. But... I dont think it would work when I really think about it. xD

    There's a flame that leads our souls astray
    No one's safe from its tender touch of pain

    And every day it's looking for new slaves
    To celebrate the beauty of the grave


    We are like the living dead
    Sacrificing all we have

    For a frozen heart and a soul on fire
    We are like the living dead

    Craving for deliverance
    With a frozen heart and a soul on fire
