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?

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)

Some Pokémon have sound abilities so it makes sense.

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.

I like this idea. (In my opinion, of course) Above all, Dark shouldn't affect it/it should be super effective against Dark because shadows (obviously) can't exist where there is light, since the former is just an absence of the latter. Then again, I wish this attribute could be given to Fire or Electric types since fire and electricity both exude light. Moreover, it should be ineffective against Ground/Steel/Rock because light can't go through thick matter (ground or metals) and crystals (Rock) just refract it, so I guess you could argue that Rock could either be 0x or 2x when it comes to Light. Water/Ice both reflect light, so know, with the benefit of hindsight, it's probably good that Pokemon Type Mechanics don't center around physics completely, because then stuff would get crazy, but I digress. The energy types (Fire/Electric/Sound, as seen above ^^^) could be.5x on Light, and vice versa, and I guess Psychic and Fighting could be weak to Light because it's hard ...more

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

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

They should have two legendary cosmic types that control space and time (each controlling a different one) and for a Pokemon game you have to try and catch them. If you catch them, they can take you to any region at any time. Like how in Pokemon black opeludic city is the future but in Pokemon white is the past. They could take you to either.

Cosmic is the best new type idea. Seems much more realistic than Sound and to an extent light. You guys seem to be forgetting the designs of Pokémon. Imagine how weird sound Pokemon would look, what would it look like? A trumpet, a symbol, a keyboard lol, it just lacks design potential. Light WAS a good idea, but was kind of shut down after fairy types became a thing, leaving only cosmic type to be the most logical choice. There are so many good ideas for the typing, A UFO Pokemon, a black hole, a star, a nebula, the possibilities are near endless, not to mention the amount of Pokémon that already could have the typing. Clefable, Minior, Cosmoem, deoxys, Cresselia, Lunatone, Solrock,
Mew, lots of opportunities.

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

This is the only type that makes sense and feels natural, flying would better be suited to a status like levitate, which can change type interaction and such.

This is basically flying type. Flying is just Air/Wind type but with a less cool name

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.

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

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

I would love a type like this! but I think it should be called Virtual

6 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.

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

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).

Duh pokemon gale of darkness

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.

This is a good one

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

Energy type would be weak against grass and ice for balance and
Grass absorbs energy
I've slows down energ I have a lot of ideas for balancing the type chart this type is intertwined with a lot of them and I'm too lazy too type everything about it

9 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

I actually thought of a type like this before I saw this how cool.

There should be a magic because then you could use mythical moves and some psychic families (like the Raltz and Abra families) would make great magic types because they can teleport and manipulate and predict things.

Isn't physical basically magic?

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

There could be new Hydra Type Pokemon

Hydreigon was the first Pokemon to come to mind when I saw hydra.

A Hydra-type Pokemon would be similar to a Dragon-type and they would often be type combinations. Hydra-type would also combine with water because Hydras are serpent like creatures that usually have multiple heads. Hydra-type moves would be like Dragon Claw mixed with BubbleBeam. - Kevie16

12 Fossil

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.

Fossil is already sort of a big sub category. It wouldn't be too hard to integrate

It just makes sense there are at least two qualifiers in each gen.
Could be strong against rock and ground and weak against dark water fire and grass. Ghost wouldn't affectt it

13 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.

I love it! Diancie or Carbink could become one. Crystals are like rocks. But they're different.

14 Blizzard

That would be Ice type. We already have that.

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

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

I think it is a good concept, but naming it Crystal-type would be better

16 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.

We've never had a Pokemon made of rubber before. I feel it could be a new type and I've thought of moves it could learn and it's strengths and weaknesses when I was only in 2nd grade. It could be weak to fire and (maybe fighting); and resist electric completely, grass, and water

Rubber would definitely be weak to poison as acids and oils brake them up

17 Derp

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

Derp. Get real. Horrible idea

Best example for magikarp

18 Ancient
19 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

This type would be great for balancing out the metagame:

Weak against: Grass, Rock (both are fairly stationary, slow moving)
Weeknesses: Grass, Rock & Ice

20 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

A mixture between dark, ghost and fire.
I imagion they would look hellish.
They would have attacks like outrage and uprore.
