Top Ten Fake Pokemon Types

This list describes Pokemon types that don't exist but would make the most sense and voters and myself would like to see in later Pokemon games. This list is totally based on opinion and not on facts.

The Top Ten

1 Sound

Again for those who are wondering what sound would be strong against; electric, steel, water, and psychic types. Weak against: normal, flying fighting and dragon types. Will not affect: ghost, ground, rock, or fighting types. Normal damage: the types not mentioned.
Strong against:
-electric: sound can control and manipulate electricity
-water: sound can burst a water balloon due to causing ripples and churning
-steel: sound bursts have been strong enough to rupture steel plating
-psychic: loud noises disrupt the concentration and mental focus
Weak against:
-normal: why not something as simple as sound be weak against normal?
-flying: winged Pokemon could break sound barriers
-fighting: fists, kicks, and other physical attacks could break sound barriers on impact
-dragon: Most dragons are flying types and roars can manipulate sound, also why not let dragons be strong against something else besides just dragon types?

Make a great type

I think it makes sense

I believe a sound type should be strong against electric types. A Tesla coil experiment with music has shown how sound can control electric currents and they couldn't resist the redirection of the sound. A strong enough sound wave could also bend currents (it hasn't been proven but in theory an ultra sonic boom could likely bend a lightning bolt). Also I believe it's about time electric Pokemon have a second weakness besides ground types. The other types weak against sound would be steel, water, and psychic types. A sound types weakness should be normal, flying, fighting, and dragon types. I think something should be weak against normal types, and why not something as simple as sound?

2 Light

Ripoff of electric

There's dark so we need light

Light and Dark would be weak to each other, like Bug and Poison were in gen 1 - Villainnumberone

In Movies Light Always Instantly Destroys Vampires Which Is Obviously Dark Typed

V 59 Comments
3 Cosmic

This is definitely one of the types I want most, and there are definitely enough Pokémon that would fit the Cosmic type to justify it, so it actually makes sense to add it.

Cosmic could be a great idea for legendary/mythical Pokemon, but would they have to be kept in a space-like area or space, like in Omega ruby/ Alpha sapphire, you fought Deoxys in space, but it would have been much different on land, so that means that trainers would have to go to space to catch a Pokemon

I believe cosmic would be great but should only be used on legendary and mythical Pokemon as I believe they would be super effective against six types fire water grass electric rock and ground as those things all happened from space and then normal also steel would be super affective against it normal because it needs a boost and astronauts go into space then steel because rocket ships

Finally someone that sees it too! I also would love an Astral(Cosmic) type, cause it would be perfect for mythical/legendary pokemon like Cosmog, Lunala, Palkia, Dialga etc.
It would be strong against ground, grass, water, fire, pretty much life supporting elements.
And as weakness, it could be affected by psychic and fairy maybe.
I think it could be immune to rock since space is full of them.

4 Cyber

Basically electric/steel

I think a better name would be Tech, but that's just my opinion

Well in my opinion Digital is a better name

This will be a great type and to control thing like machine.

V 27 Comments
5 Wind

Ok, so the classical elements are Fire, Water, Earth and Air. We have the pokemon types Fire, Water Grass (Earth) but why not Wind or Air?

The lack of a wind/air type is strange. It has always been on of the four classic elements. Look at other media like Avatar: The Last Airbender, The Fifth Element, Captain Planet. The four elements are always "Water, Fire, Earth, and Wind." Wind is always an elemental type in almost all video games or movies which reference such magical elements. Pokemon should really have a wind type - and it's definitely different from Flying. Honestly, in my opinion, flying shouldn't even be a type. It should just be an ability, like Levitate. Maybe make flying bird type and then add wind type.

This type is totally different from Flying as Flying-types use there wings and beaks and flying abilities to fight while Wind-types would use the wind, air, and pressure around them to fight. This would also give Flying-types a legitimate primary type. However, wind types definitely wouldn't have to be birds. - Kevie16

Pokemon is a perfect balance between the elements. Fire types burn through their enemies. Water types flow with indestructible force. Grass and ground types harness the power of the earth to blow through obstacles. And Wind Pokemon... Oh... What's that, Game Freak?.. What do you mean there's no wind type?.. Just these birds?.. Aww man, but what about the whole fire water earth wind thing I was doing there? Man, you ruined it dude. We really need a wind or air type.

6 Shadow

Dark + Ghost = This a.k.a Eldritch - Scerve

This already exists in.

I guess I could see that because dark pulse is kind of a black hole thing lol

What about Ghost Type? ghost types deal in the shadows. And with souls. I have yet to see my favorite "eeveelution" added as canon. - Souleon

V 13 Comments
7 Plasma

For solar pokemons!

Isn't that basically the electric type? - Villainnumberone

Plasma-type is kind of a mixture between Water and Poison-type but with a twist. They are super explosive, so Fire and Electric-type would be very effective on it. This one is a very unique idea because it is like a controversial type combination, but it would be an all new type. - Kevie16

Plasma could be a great idea for Pokemon like Grimer or Muk, and they could be located in old abandoned power plants/nuclear factories, but a Plasma type would probably hurt the people and environment around it, considering all of the plasma/nuclear effect on people and the environment

8 Crystal


I'm going to add this to my game actually, with the same effectiveness's as the ones some people here have shared out.

Very creative and cool <3 I like it 3:

This would be a mixture of Rock and Ice, and have a close relation to Fairy. They would use moves like Diamond Storm and introduce moves like Crystal Beam and Ruby Shard.

Strong Against:
Grass, it would just shred it
Fighting, imagine fighting a diamond with your fists, ow
Dark, since they are lustrous, they can penetrate the dark with light
Flying, it would scratch their wings pretty bad, and then they couldn't fly

Weak Against:
Fire, since it can melt, mold and change it
Steel, since the crystal would shatter against it
Rock, same reason as Steel, shatter on contact
Dragon, since they're attracted to shiny thinga and have super tough scales, so the crystal won't hurt it

Immunities and Zero Effects:
Poison, same reason steel is immune, it can't get through
Fairy, both wouldn't affect each other because they're closely related to each other - Thorite_Gem

V 9 Comments
9 Energy

I like it. Somehow it reminds me of Zygarde

Energy-type Pokemon would use the spirit and motivation inside of them to attack with strong and spirited moves and help themselves in battle with their own encouragement-based status moves. I got this idea from "Avatar: The Last Airbender". - Kevie16

I think cosmic is better. Energy. Fits moves more

Don't like this. This is basically Electric

V 8 Comments
10 Good

Good is fairy. Fairies are super effective against dragon and dark, which are considered evil. Good beats evil. - Ohno

No sense whatsoever - PokemonGOSucks

I don't like it. Seems cliche

It might had been added into this list because the typing, Dark, in Japanese, means "evil." so...LOL

V 2 Comments

The Newcomers

? Diamond

Diamond would be a great idea, but probably just sum it up with Crystal or Gem type. that's just my opinion, though. Maybe a cave type, too?

The Contenders

11 Hydra

Dragon - Scerve

Hydra is a water monster. It would just go under water or dragon. If this was made a type, it would have to specifically focus on Pokemon that were ONLY hydra-like, and that does NOT leave a lot of room for creativity. - Penguincamp

I think dragon is enough

No, the only hydra pokemon is hydreigon. Plus it's way too specific - ConqueringDarkness

12 Minecraft

This is amazing 21/10 can't believe this hasn't been added already

I would love to train my Steve

Let's make a petition

Great idea

V 24 Comments
13 Fossil

At this point, it would make more sense to have Fossil/Dinosaur be it's own type. The Rock typing on essentially every ancient Pokemon makes no sense from a ecological perspective, and it would make far more sense for the EVER GROWING LIST of ancient Pokemon to have their own specific type, for a new purpose. It would also add a lot more interest to getting these Pokemon, as they'd be your only consistent access to a rare type, and type rarity is something Pokemon hasn't really had since Gen 3.

Wanabe Rock type - Scerve

All fossil pokemon are rock types, so this would be incredibly unnecessary and would involve changing multiple types within a single generation. This also presents the idea of why adding a new type would be difficult, since most of the pokemon that would fit in the ideas in this list already have 2 types.

This idea is stupid

V 7 Comments
14 Magic

This would be great for gen 8. I think this should be added because of the sword and shield games.

Seriously. Awesome. Idea.

My idea for a Jackalope starter would be that it starts as pure fire and is tiny with small stubs but it's first evolution becomes Fire/Magic type and is slightly smaller then Lopunny and has medium sized antlers then it's final evo keeps the Fire/Magic typing but it becomes HUGE and it has rainbow colored flames on its neck, hat, and its now HUMUNGOUS antlers that could give Xerneas a run for it's money. Magic type to me, would be weak to Chaos, Glitch, and Cosmic while resisting Dark, Fairy, Fire, Grass, Light, and Dragon, and Magic types are also immune to Steel, Rock, Ground, Ghost, Poison, and Electric. Magic types are super effective against Light, Fairy, Chaos, Ghost, Poison, Electric, Light, and Dark type pokemon.

This type might seem similar to Psychic or Fairy-type, but it is much different. Psychic-types use their powerful minds to fight. Fairy-types are not magic; they are mystical creatures that use special, physical powers. Magic-type Pokemon would be special creatures that use... Magic, unlike Psychic and Fairy-types. - Kevie16

15 Blizzard

That would be Ice type. We already have that.

It is a move right?

I always wondered about stronger types based off of others, like lava for a fire type - Doggus

Just saying Blizzard is a Ice-Type Attack.. - cassiabez

16 April Fools

Minecraft type on coke. - Scerve

This type is as sad as the Minecraft Type.

17 Time

This is not too good because barely any pokemon will have it. - Scerve

This is super cool

That's crazy, This could work. Pokemon that have trick room or something could be considered. Kinda close to psychic.

What Dialga would be if this type existed

V 4 Comments
18 Mineral

@Souleon, boys can wear dresses - Villainnumberone

Well, rock and ground are technically alike, so bringing in another type to represent Earth is not a good idea

Minerals and Rocks are not the same thing. Mineral-type would be great because it could create a bunch of new Pokemon with bright, shiny colors, smooth or rough edges, and they would be able to learn all kinds of moves. For example, Mineral-types could learn Mineral, Rock, Fire, Ground, Water, Ice, and Steel-type moves. Many existing Pokemon could fit into this type also. - Kevie16

We already have rock and ground. Mineral would be more of a ground type

V 7 Comments
19 Ancient

All Fossil pokemon like kabuto would be fossil, like it.

When a new region comes out ancient would hopefully come in

i like it

20 Artificial

Silvally, Genesect, Mewtwo etc.? - Scerve

So Drifloon?

21 Human

Go Chad! - Scerve

Go professor Oak! - Souleon

They mean mr. mime

What? would it be like a human? Go joe!

22 Derp

So funny jynx would be one!

Charizard! Use Stupid meme! - Scerve

Pikachu! use unhappy fans!

The best type ever!

V 18 Comments
23 Nuclear

Amazing type ask pokemon to put it on sword and shield

This is the perfect element given to a pokemon

This DOES exist in fan-made games, specifically "Pokémon Uranium", but it does seem like a great type to have... looking at you, poison types...

How is Minecraft higher on the list than this?

24 Rubber

The rubber type is an agreeable type for the Pokemon franchise games. After all, not only is rubber useful against electricity, but being a rubber type can make one stretch its limbs or tail, stretch its blood vessels to activate blood doping for increasing speed, accuracy and evasion, inflate its bones to make sure it lands big physical blows to land powerful moves against foes with punches or kicks and can inflate the muscles to become bouncy and powerful at the same time by compressing its limbs and releasing a punch or kick that could send the foe's Pokemon out of bounds. This type is purely ingenious which makes this more qualified to be a type. - appsdata

A rubber type is creative and there could be a lot of ideas for it, but I'm afraid it might be to specific.

Could resist Electric, Water, Fighting, Ground and be weak to Ice, Fire, Steel, and maybe Poison. It could be strong against Dark because good guys often use rubber bullets and other items to stop bad guys, Water because rubber is very water resistant and good at displacing water, and Electric since it would be a poor enough conductor to hit Electric Pokemon.
Although the only Pokemon that exist right now that would fit this type would be Pokemon like Floatzel and possibly others like Ditto, Spoink, or Chansey (one is an amorphous gum-like blob, the other has an elastic pouch and more of a rubber-like appearance than Kangaskhan).
I would love this type because I feel like it would be pretty useful defensively and wouldn't overlap too much with any existing type (i'd argue the closest would be Grass, but without the weaknesses to Bug and Flying). Most of the above types just feel too generic compared to rubber.

Rubber makes far more sense as a Type than Blizzard or Time

25 MLG

The trio of the Minecraft type and the April Fools type; sad and lame idea.

Fun idea but not a good one - TheOneMan

26 Glass

But isn't glass made out of sand? Glass sounds like another earth related type.

Cool - Scerve

Most of the fake Pokemon types here are just unoriginal copies of types we already have. This type is better. It isn't closely based off of an official type. It would probably be pretty weak, though, since it's based off of glass. I think it would be resistant to Bug (ever seen a fly repeatedly banging its head against the window trying to get out? ) and weak to Sound.

Glass would be a cool type. It would be weak against sound, and fighting, but strong against fairy.

V 6 Comments
27 Chaos

This would be awesome! Just name your Chaos type "Emerald."

I've seen chaos being seven deadly sins themed. Sounds good, but how will we make Lust?

You are horribly horrible at this. It's sad how bad you are at ideas

I kinda like this

V 6 Comments
28 Mega GX EX

what - Scerve


29 Gas

It can also represents Steam, as well as Pressure.

Basically Poison type, because gas is poisonous.

I'd rather call it "Steam type" since we've got "Water" and "Ice" as well, and it will complete the three state of matter (liquid, solid, and finally gas)

Could be :
x2 against : Fairy, Electrik,
x0.5 against : Psychic, Ice
x0 against : Water

x2 by : Flying, Ice
x0.5 by : Ground, Water

Koffing, Weezing, Swablu, Altaria and Torkoal could be Steam type
Mist, Haze, SmokeScreen and Mist Ball could be Steam moves.

30 Fart

My armouring type would be able to block it. - Scerve

Also known as poison type. WEEZING

It's better then sound

Because who doesn't like farts

V 5 Comments
31 Beast

Normal type but better


Top 5 type after the inclusion of the fairy type.

This is the only one that is actually a good idea.

Strong against:
Normal, Grass, Bug, Fairy

Weak against:
Ghost, Fire, Rock, Ground, Dragon

Resistance to:
Water, Grass, Normal, Fairy.

Also poison should be super effective against water.

32 Poop

Wait - ain't Digimon World has this concept as "Filth"?

The smell permanently paralyzes the opponent until they are defeated.

Let's go POOP!
People Order Our Patties

Lame - Doggus

33 Pokeball

Amoongus and voltorb



34 Language

Technically, all Pokémon speak their forms of languages. - PokemonGOSucks

35 Mutant

This would work fantastically in a future-esque pokemon game!
Each Mutant Pokemon would be a mixture of two more Pokemon like with Type: Null/Silvally
And the Pokemon would always have a dual type due to mixing the DNA of multiple species
Strong Against;
Fighting (Due to the fact that mutants are rarely ever beaten through a fist fight and sometimes even overpower most other beings in physical strength)
Normal (If they can overpower fighters in raw physical strength, why not normal types too? Plus they need the nerf [Slaking])
Weak against;
Psychic (Due to many mutants being overcome by very primal thoughts and actions, thus making many susceptible to persuasion and brain washing)
Electricity (Due to the fact that their overall cellular structure may not be as stable as regular Pokemon because of genetic tampering)
Poison (Same reason as Electricity)
These weaknesses can be overcome with different dual typing match ups though, So it'd be quite a power ...more

These Pokemon are Pokemon that have been created or eternally altered due to human actions or severe weather or nature or interaction with other Pokemon. Mutant-type moves could be based on pollution, natural disasters, disabling, or protecting. Maybe Pokemon like Muk or Porygon could be Mutant-types. - Kevie16

I dunno, still think this is mostly poison. Many poison Pokemon weren't created in nature anyways, such as Gastly, Muk, Garbodor...I suppose these COULD be separated from other poison Pokemon, but wouldn't they be too similar? - Penguincamp

And blastoise could be a teenage mutant ninja turtle

36 Glitch

Make missingno a Glitch type

Could have reality bending powers. Making a "glitch" in space-time continuum. Then again, probs too OP.

Cyber would be better, but like grass and bug it can share that relationship with cyber being weak to glitch - Doggus

Could learn HaCkD

37 Zombie

Ghost type


Undead type, which is pretty much ghost. But ghost type isn't physical, zombie type could be a pokèmone's corpse reanimated.

38 Food

Cool - Scerve


Saddest idea yet

The should be frosty delight Pokemon.

39 Tech

Nintendo could add a tech Pokemon that have an appearence with gears, toolbox items, and all things that deal with technology. it could be found in factories and building sites in Pokemon games. Nintendo, please hear me out and give like to the Tech type.

We have steel.

Voltorb and Electrode a tech/electric type

This would be good

40 Blood

Doggus, Is that a joke.

Anyways cool. - Scerve

Hm... a good one. Take this from Avatar: The Last Airbender and I'll support this. - Souleon

For games rated everyone? I don't know...

Blood and love should combine.

V 3 Comments
41 Chemical

I like this one!

Because moves like acid spray shouldn't be poison types. Not all acids are poisons, just look at Acetic Acid (vinegar) and ribonucleic acid (RNA). Pokémon of this type could be like Muk and Grimer, because they're made of a chemical sludge. It could also include new Pokémon like test tube Pokémon, or Pokémon that are based on different principles of chemistry! Not to mention, a lot of chemicals can make really good attacks. There could be attacks like "carbon ash", which could lower accuracy, or moves like Sulfuric Vent, which could cause Pokémon to take damage AND cause the next Pokémon on the opponents team to become poisoned!

42 Mars

That's what I was thinking but instead of Mars maybe Galactic type

43 Death

Dark Ghost but more on the ghost side. - Scerve

We already have a ghost type - ConqueringDarkness

Its not exactly evil and its not like dark type

44 Healthy

There was a government type next to this under newcomers once. what happened to it? - Villainnumberone

It would be good in a pokemon center because it could heal other pokemon

Yes,cool. I could see this type replacing the normal typing of the following Pokemon:Chansey line,jigglypuff line,and audino. I could also see this being added to comfey. I could see the following moves being healthy type:heal pulse,floral healing,recover. - Villainnumberone

45 Rainbow

HA! *Insert insulting gay comment here* - Souleon

Fairy type basically.

I would look too gay - Doggus

I'm about to explode. If this type is in the games, we need a rainbow Eeveelution.

V 4 Comments
46 Karp

Fish type? - Scerve

Magikarp will be even stronger than he is now. Carp is super effective against every type and every type is ineffective and doesn't do damage.

This might as well be water, fish, aqua, or any other thing to do with water

Karp type resists all kinds of moves, and is super effective against all types, besides Karp itself.

V 8 Comments
47 Plastic

Chinese version of glass types - Doggus

I like this type. Normal needs to be erased.

48 Bird

There is a flying, do we even NEED bird?!

For the person below me, this was a glitch type in Red and Blue. Don't blame the creator of this list.

I am fine with bird tipes

The glitch type, lmao

V 3 Comments
49 Anti-Matter

Can destroy matter if at 100 strength in the guides.

Dark types, but sounds more over powered - Doggus

What about Dark Matter? - PokemonGOSucks

It could actually be kind of interesting if this were a type that would be super-effective against everything, but also weak to evrything.
