Top Ten Pokemon Types That Should Be Made


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?

This is like the best type. Everyone thinks we should have a light, beast, demon, shadow, and magic type, but there is no need. Light is basically fairy, beast and demon is like ghost and dark, shadow is also like ghost, and magic legit is Physic. The sound type by far make the most sense. All the other ones are kinda stupid. This would fit for so many good Pokemon. This typing gets my vote, no question about it!

Totally made sense. Hopefully it gets in the Gen. 9 games though.

Make a great type

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.

This would be so cool if there weren't a fairy type

Ripoff of electric

See, I don't think Fairy replaces Light. I wouldn't call Arceus a Fairy, I would call Arceus Light.
Light is all about justice and judgement and faith-ier powers, fairy is about mythicality and fragility.
Both are light magic, but they're both very different.

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

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

4 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.

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.

This would be a good idea. But not as a new type, more of a replacement. Air or wind is more elemental that flying. Some pokemon can't even use the move fly and they're flying type. Wind would be a replacement for flying. - ConqueringDarkness

5 Shadow

Gale of darkness. - Villainnumberone

Now that black hole eclipse is the dark-type z-move and is still represented by physical darkness in Japanese and that we have max darkness, this type is to similar to dark and ghost - Villainnumberone

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

This already exists in.

6 Energy

I like it. Somehow it reminds me of Zygarde

I think cosmic is better. Energy. Fits moves more

Don't like this. This is basically Electric

Energy is exactly like Mega Evolution, it uses the spirit and motivation of Pokemon to attack their opponents, so could that mean a stronger form of Mega Evolution?

7 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.

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

Very creative and cool <3 I like it 3:

8 Good

Translation of Japanese name for light - Villainnumberone

Very Creative Name (Obious Sarcasm) - GamerXS

Fairy-type pokemon will not always deal super-effective damage to dark-type pokemon. also, good does not always beat evil. - Villainnumberone

No sense whatsoever - PokemonGOSucks

9 Plasma

For solar pokemons!

Isn't that basically the electric type? - Villainnumberone

Para utra beasts deoxys girachi cleafa entro outros extra terrestres dimensionais

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

10 Aura

yep. - Villainnumberone

Lucario and giratina - Villainnumberone

That's a good idea! I'm not sure why I like it, I just do. I just have the feeling that aura would be a cool type. - anythingispossible

That's a good idea aura should be a great type


The Contenders

11 Life

I think that since we have grass types we should have a life type.

Or just a grass/fairy duo


Nice option.

12 Time

We just need some new pokemon for this type - Villainnumberone

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

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

This is super cool

13 Mineral

I like ancient better - Villainnumberone

@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

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

14 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

15 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.

I prefer ancient type - Villainnumberone

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.

16 Cyber

Basically electric/steel

Well in my opinion Digital is a better name

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

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

17 Death

Dark Ghost but more on the ghost side. - Scerve

This type would be to Pokemon who like nothing but bring destruction on the world
Affective against: light, psychic, fairy, grass, bug, flying.

Weak against: magic.

Allied types: Dark, ghost, cosmic.

This type can be really dangerous. What if they cause real deaths in Pokemon during battles? And if this type does become a reality, Pokemon won't remain a kid's show anymore (and may transform into a 18+ show). - Kiteretsunu

Death would not cause real deaths probably just like a dark type move and there weaknesses are time, life, and fighting. There advantages should be life, grass, bug, dragon, fairy, and psychic

18 Magic

I think this is a great idea for gen 8 kinda close to Psychic but far enough I was thinking of this but I thought it was too close to psychic but now I think it would be great!

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.

19 Space

I agree with the cosmic, but not the Pokemon.

Moon Pokemon would be cool! - beatles5

Sounds Galactic

Woo! A Sun Pokemon so cool

20 Zombie

Zombie would be the same old thing over and over again, like

Oh no it's a zombie type, looks like the same thing only Small/bigger!

Like corporeal undead, these use hands and mouth to spread the virus and fight.

We could have zombie/corpse (it would be Normal/Ghost) - PokemonGOSucks

It would be weak to dragon.

21 Blizzard

Ice-type attack - Villainnumberone

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

22 Air

We already have flying. Use your head.

23 Arachnid

No. We have bug, arachnid is the stupidest idea ever heard of. Are you having brain issues

Spider-Man dose what a spider doses

What there's Ariados, Galvantula, etc... - PokemonGOSucks

24 Dino

Some Pokemon come from fossils. Make a type for this. (Fossil type works too. )

Nope already got a similar type

Or you can call it prehistoric

Dino type would be amazing

25 Noise

I know this has nothing to do with Pokemon types but what the hell did they do to Ash Ketchum's voice!
But yea interesting types.
I suppose Pokemon is like a guilty pleasure nowadays.

Pretty much the same thing as the sound type

Horrible. Change it to sound, epic

Exploud, and all of its pre-evolutions. - moonwolf

26 Crustacean

Dumb. We have enough crab Pokemon. This is just sas

I pitch you face with the claw

Wow. That's an awesome type. - PizzaGuy

Dumb idea
Mr Krabs

27 Technology

We have steel.

It would be mostly Electric/Steel type - PokemonGOSucks

Change it to to robot

Voltorb and Electrode a tech/electric type

28 Ancient

Yes, an ancient type. for fossil pokemon - Villainnumberone

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

When a new region comes out ancient would hopefully come in

i like it

29 Gas

It can also represents Steam, as well as Pressure.

Basically Poison type, because gas is poisonous.

30 Plant

OH come on, have you forgotten one of the main types (grass). Think.

Come on, this is what Grass should have been called!

This is what I'm calling my games type
I'm protected by copy right bwhaha

31 Alien

I'd rather paranormal. And that is also stupid

Or Cosmic/Astral.

Pokemon like Deoxis, Azelf, Mew etc.


This is space type._.

32 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.

33 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.

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

34 Radioactive

Poison+other - PokemonGOSucks

35 Swamp

Swampert is Water/Ground - PokemonGOSucks

This is stupid

This is grass type._.


36 Artificial

Silvally, Genesect, Mewtwo etc.? - Scerve

So Drifloon?

37 Human

Go, me!

Go Chad! - Scerve

Go professor Oak! - Souleon

They mean mr. mime

38 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.

39 Immortal

This should be Arceus and it has no weakness only life and it can learn various moves basically a better normal type and its advantages should be all types

Arceus should be a different type. Something like Divine

Kinda dumb because can't die

Overpowered - Doggus

40 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

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

41 Monster

Fairy; kinda like how fighting beats normal

Fighting; Monsters can obviously beat fighters, now matter how well trained they are

Monster; just like dragon beats itself


Dragon; monsters are strong, dragons are strongest

Fairy; some fairies can beat monsters. Also because this makes monster type pokemon riskier


Dark; they are weaker than fighting type pokemon, what do you expect

Types that resist it:
Grass, it needs buffs

Bug, it needs buffs

It has an egg egroup so it might as well be higher than minecraft

Aren't all Pokemon monsters?

They're basically pocket monsters LOL!

42 Language

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

43 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.

44 Mystery

Come on, it's a better name than "? "! Plus, think of all the things you could do with it, it already has a move called curse, but you could do things like have moved called "teleport", "soul seek" or something like "knockout" or "nausea hit"

Teleport? Abra comes to mind.

Teleport is already a move - Villainnumberone

45 Astro

What about Deoxys, Rayquaza, and Giratina?
There are plenty more then those mentioned already that could fit this.

I think an astro type would be cool

Sounds awesome

Good for Pokemon like Beeheym Palkia, Baltoy, and Genecect

46 Plastic

Chinese version of glass types - Doggus

I like this type. Normal needs to be erased.

Plastic is polymer and I believe many pokemons have polymer-type already (protein maybe) interesting suggestion though

47 Pokeball

Amoongus and voltorb



48 Create

I like night and day. The rest is garbage

Imagine: Lidobre, a Pokemon with the type CreateFire, Plezatia, a Pokemon with the type CreatePlant, Wizen, a Pokemon with the type CreateWater. The trio in the next Pokemon game Pokemon Night and Day. And you must fight theme all together. You and your vs three GOD Pokemon. And if you have caught this three Pokemon, you can go into the cave of origin an ending and catch ARZEUS, which can form with create type. This would be EPIC, MAN.

49 Wood

It could be more tree based then grass types and simmilar to the ground/rock type relation ship

That would be considered Grass - PokemonGOSucks

You are a bozo

Keep it grass please - Doggus

50 Science

Some of these are so bad! - PokemonGOSucks

I wonder if I mangle you, you'll get a nack of good ideas
