Top Ten Fake Pokemon Types

Kevie16
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?

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?

If sound was added, three types Pokemon would have to be added ( bats and birds, and noise things), although sound would most likely be a larger type than ghost, with 20 normal type moves that would automatically become sound, and a few others that have other respective types. Sound if added correctly would include at least 90 currently existing Pokemon, which would more than halve the normal type, and in many situations lead to a third type, considering most birds would be flying and sound already without even considering their other type ( normal is dropped)

2 Light

Light type strong against:
-ghost: idea taken from another Nintendo series, (Mario) boos hate light
-electric: electric is a type of light and will not affect the type in fact light will cancel out electricity
-fire: like electric, fire is another light source. It would be cancelled by light.
-flying: as sunlight blinds the birds it could blind a flying Pokemon this could also tie in with bat-like Pokemon, since bats hate light also.
Light type weaknesses:
-grass: Grass types absorb light
-fairy: fairies also absorb light and manipulate it
-steel: can block light and contain it
-dragon: attracted to shiny objects and any dragon attack on a light type will never miss
Light type resistance and zero affect:
-Dark: Dark is penetrated by light yet black holes swallow light.

Light types would give ghost another weakness and if you think about it, electric and fire couldn't affect light types because their both sources of light. A light type would be weak against grass because a grass type would just absorb light attacks. Other light type weaknesses include fairy, and steel types. Light types would be strong against ghost, electric, fire, and flying. Dark and light types would resist each other and dragon type moves would always connect though not super strong. A dragon type move would be drawn to light like moths to a flame because Dragons are drawn to shiny objects. Light type candidates include Voltorb/electrode, Rotom, Cresselia, Chinchou/Lanturn, etc. Attacks that's for Pokemon company to decide.

I would really like a light type, as it would balance out the dark type. It feels a bit strange to have a dark type but no light type. Pokemon could have done many great light types and it would have been great however they went. Unfortunately, by now, it makes no sense to have a light type as fire and fairy cover it and most retypes of moves and Pokemon would just be of fire and/or fairy.

If there's dark, there's light right?

3 Cosmic

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

Cosmic types could fit Pokemon sun and moon as the sun and moon are in space also a lot of Pokemon could be in Cosmic types

I am gone have dis my pokemon game

4 Wind

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.

Wind is Flying. - Ohno

5 Cyber

I really do like this idea. It could inspire more Pokemon like Porygon and its evolutions. We need some more like them in my opinion.

It could represent Rotom an it could finally bring along a three type Pokemon

Never heard of this type. Could be a possibility. Pokemon like Porygon and Ditto would be good types. Normal typing should be abolished completely.

cool

6 Shadow

There's already dark. We don't need shadow

To everyone saying it's too similar to the Dark type, remember that "Dark" refers to immorality, not the absence of light. In Japan, the Dark type is actually called the "Evil" type.

Nintendo already made a shadow type, it's just not in the main series games. Also, it prevents leveling (until cured, but once cured all xp gained during the shadow form will flood in) but is super effective on everything except shadow (which has a resistance to it).

There is one already - PokemonGOSucks

7 Plasma

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

I think it friends with poison types.

cool

8 Energy

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

9 Good

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

No sense whatsoever - PokemonGOSucks

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

I don't like it. Seems cliche

V 2 Comments
10 Hydra

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

Means Water in Greek - PokemonGOSucks

V 4 Comments

The Contenders

11 Crystal

The only reason I vote for this is because I created a Pokemon that was based off of gems, and I don't know what type to make it, seeing as a giant flying ruby doesn't really seem very steel-typish.

But still, there's Rock-type - PokemonGOSucks

Suicune would definitely be in here. TheFlamingHawk

Sound like a beautiful Pokémon. Diancie could be changed to a fairy crystal type.

V 4 Comments
12 Fossil

This idea is stupid

Considering how many Pokemon can fit into this category it is amazing that Game Freak has not put this in like Kabuto and Corsila along with the creation of new Pokemon I would love to see what you people think

I agree with this. Pterodactyl would probably get Fossil Flying instead of rock.

With the fact that in almost every Pokémon game there are fossil Pokémon, this should replace the rock type in each fossil pokemon

13 Magic

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

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.

I think this type would not be based purely on magic in the Imagination also I think more of psychic would be immune because many scholars and intelligent minds claim that magic does not exist.

Hmm we already have the Psychic one so... - cassiabez

14 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

15 Mineral

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

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

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

A mineral type would be a great idea. And the pokemon can use a certain attack type acording to its colour like magical gemsa aka minerals.

16 April Fools

This type is as sad as the Minecraft Type.

17 Minecraft

(Vomits) no this is horrible, whoever said it can you please step forward?

10/10 best idea ever

... Are you kidding me? -.-

Excuse me? who did this?

18 Time

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

A time type pokemon would be perfect! This could work. Offensively it could beat speedy type like electric, if we have a sound type, "faster than the speed of sound" that could work" also like a normal vs ghost thing it could be ineffective against cosmic and 100% resistant to cosmic, like a space and time sort of thing.

Call it temporal and make one called cosmos or celestial and tie them to a gen 4 remake

19 Ancient

When a new region comes out ancient would hopefully come in

i like it

20 Derp

Ditto should be derp type. Derp will be strong against all types except another derp. All types do no damage against derp but derp is normal against derp. This is the best type ever.

Best type ever. We need this in Pokemon. Just make the derpy looking Pokemon have a Derp type.

Deep type huh... *looks at Slowpoke*

Yes.

21 Artificial
22 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

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.

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

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

23 Human

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

24 MLG

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

Fun idea but not a good one - TheOneMan

25 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

Effective to: All types except fairy.
Very-Effective to: Ghost
Not-Very Effective to: Dark
Super weak to: Fairy and Psychic, both Super-Effective

It's symbol would be a cracking skull or cracking star or a swirling ball or darkness.
A Põkemon that should be awarded with this type: Garatina.
Yep... T-T

26 Fart

Also known as poison type. WEEZING

It's better then sound

Because who doesn't like farts

Poison - PokemonGOSucks

V 4 Comments
27 Glass

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.

Glass cannon - Doggus

Yes. This is fabulous

V 3 Comments
28 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.

29 Nuclear

HA! Whoever thought of this, gets my full support. Nuclear types could learn awesome moves...

Perfect idea, just don't let it use explosion.

This would be awesome

Someone put this higher on the list

30 Mega GX EX
31 Poop

The smell permanently paralyzes the opponent until they are defeated.

Let's go POOP!
People Order Our Patties

Lame - Doggus

Nonsense.

V 3 Comments
32 Mutant

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

I prefer Nuclear - Doggus

V 7 Comments
33 Language

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

34 Pokeball
35 Zombie

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

V 2 Comments
36 Food

The should be frosty delight Pokemon.

Saddest idea yet

ITS SUPER EFFECTIVE ON ALL TYPES BECAUSE THEY HAVE THE MOVE EAT! WHICH EATS THE POKEMON IT ONLY WEAKNESS IS STUPIDITY!

Um,well,vanilluxe would be food type in all flavors. it would also have a second type depending on the flavor. for example,cherry flavor would be part fighting because red color. strawberry would be part fairy because pink. blackberry flavor would be part dark because most dark-type pokemon have black on them. the ground-type would be chocolate flavor,because ground is represented by brown. - Villainnumberone

37 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

HOLY CRAP THIS WOULD BE AWESOME

38 Blood

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

Blood and love should combine.

Fighting type - Doggus

Deathknight comes to mind from wow

39 Beast

This should be a typing for sure.

TO REPLACE THE WASTED NORMAL TYPES

Similar to dragon type they are strong fast and bulky bu they don't have many special attacks and their moves wouldn't inflict stats. If you like having strategy while fighting beast types aren't good for that since their animals but there are exceptions.

Pokemon that could fit into this could be pyroar, beartic, typhlosion, arcanine, suicune, raikou, and entei, staraptor and many other canine feline and other Pokemon that seem like dangerous hunting predators.

They are strong to
Fighting, dark, ice, water and normal.
They are strong to fighting because if a man fought a bear with his hands he would die. Strong to dark because most beasts like lions can see in the dark. Strong to ice becuase lots of animals hibernate and have fur to withstand the cold. Water becuase large animals need lots of water. And normal becuase a lot of normal types are rodents or birds and those are commonly hunted.

They are weak to
Psychic, fire, steel, ghost and bug.
They are ...more

This has a lot of potential what with pall of the huge beast-like Pokémon
I think moves like Crush Claw, Bite, Crunch, Roar, and Noble Roar could be re-typed as Beast type moves and Pokémon like Ursaring and Pyroar could be re-typed as Beast type Pokémon

40 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.

Voltorb and Electrode a tech/electric type

This would be good

We have steel.

V 1 Comment
41 Healthy

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

42 Mecha

I don't understand why people have ideas for tech, mecha, and machine when there is already steel. I can see virtual/cyber though.

If Steel didn't exist, this would be an amazing idea!

You should change it to robot

Steel type is similar to this

V 1 Comment
43 Death

Its not exactly evil and its not like dark type

We already have a ghost type - ConqueringDarkness

44 Mars
45 Rainbow

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.

We need this!

V 3 Comments
46 Karp

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.

Could you think of anything worse

V 7 Comments
47 Bone

Yes

48 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

missingno.

V 2 Comments
49 Plastic

Chinese version of glass types - Doggus

I like this type. Normal needs to be erased.

50 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

There are sooo many pokemon that are birds but are normal and flying. Bird should be super effective against:
Fighting because the video's I see on YouTube people that try to fight birds always lose
Other birds cause food chain and stuff
Phsycic because they are all chirpy and spastic so it confuses the consintration.
And it should be weak against:
Normal because people have guns
and that's it so the good thing about bird type is that it would only have one type that its not very effective against. Oh yeah and it has no effect on dragon because dragon is like bird but with fire and intense claws so birds do nothing.
