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!

This is easily the one type that must be created at some point. It's unique

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

Optic might be a better name. That way it's not just limited to light, but things relating to light too. And it sounds more counterpart to electric that way.

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.

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

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

This could work really well.Mewtwo,Necrozma,Deoxys and others are contenders.Also,PSYCHIC POWERS DON'T BELONG IN SPACE!

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

Could be for the evolution of solagaleo and lunala and for more legendaries
Could be for clefable evoltution to
Supper effective: ground rock steel and grass

Weak: fire dragon and fighting

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.

I just think it could be neat.Flying type is dumb.I think Tornadeus,Castform and others could become this type...

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?

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.

5 Crystal

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

I am thinking of shiny,but spiky and deadly,fairy rocks.Doesn't that sound super cool?

This type 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:

Weak Against:


Zero Effect On:

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

6 Shadow

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

Yes, yes, I know, "but we already have a Dark type! " Sure, Dark SOUNDS like it would be for shadows, the night, the moon and the like, but let me ask you this- what does the move Gang Up have to do with any of those things? What about Bite? Fake Tears? Nasty Plot? The list goes on and on and on!

You see, the Dark type is not a type about shadows OR the night OR the moon; it is a type about evil. Mischief. Manipulation. That's why it's called the Evil type in Japan.

So, where would this put Shadow? Shadow WOULD be the type for the shadows, the night, the moon!

I propose that Pokémon changes Dark type's English name to Evil type, and adds the Light and Shadow types. Why didn't I vote for Light? This type needs it much more, and people need to know how it wouldn't just be a carbon copy of Dark type.

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

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

7 Energy

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?

Imaging hearing about an energy energy... :/

8 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.

Time is really interesting I think that should be a Pokemon type

9 Plasma

I think that Plasma is like Fire,Fairy and Poison combined.Imagine a sludge pokemon that controls poisonous fire balls.Isn't that cool?

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

Isn't that basically the electric type?

I think it friends with poison types.

10 Aura

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.

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

Lucario and giratina

Cosmic is better

The Contenders

11 Fossil

They should put all the fossil pokemon in this category and then any ancient pokemon for future games.

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.

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

12 Good

No sense whatsoever

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

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

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

13 Life

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

Or just a grass/fairy duo

Nice option.

Aww yeah!

14 Cyber

I prefer the term Digital, but this type would be really good. The game Temtem is using it, and it's a great idea.

I think that the Cyber type should be based on information and computation and not on mechanics or robots. After all, Cyber as a word comes from the Information age, long after mechanical machines were widely adopted. So Pokemon like Klinklang and Electrode are not suited for the Cyber type because they are not based on computers or information processing, while the Porygon line is suited for this type.

Here is how I think that type should behave:
Immume to:
- Confusion, because Cyber Pokemon specialize in information processing you cannot confuse them.
- Ice, because cooling off a computer only helps it to dissipate heat.

- Cyber, because Cyber Pokemon fight using information based moves but processing information is the strong point of Cyber Pokemon hence you would challenge them at their own game. But they are not immume since computers overheat when pushed beyond their limit (like when overclocking).
- Electric, because it often is their power ...more

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.

Well in my opinion Digital is a better name

15 Mineral

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

Rock, Ground, and Steel type pokemon are considered 'Mineral' pokemon already. Plus, we have Diancie, made of some kinda mineral, yet she is a rock/fairy type.

Yes I call Diancie a girl because it looks kinda like one. Guys don't do pink rock dresses. Girls do pink dresses. Plus, the thing doesn't look genderless anyways.

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 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.

I think dragon is enough

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

Means Water in Greek

17 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.

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.

Well, I feel like magic would resist psychic, because even the most intelligent minds would be at confusion when the unexplainable happens, and magic is often used to distract people from focusing properly. It would be super effective against:
Dark (Magic usually kills villains)
Psychic (As I mentioned Earlier)
Ghost (Again, Magic kills villains)
Bugs (Control over animals, or bugs)
Water (Magic is elemental)
Grass (Same as before)
Fire (You Probably get it now)
Fighting (You can't punch if you are hurt by magic)
Steel (Many Mythical Creatures are wounded by steel)
Fairy (Fairies have magic)
Dragon (Dragons usually dodge magic)

18 Death

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).

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

We already have a ghost type

19 Space

I agree with the cosmic, but not the Pokemon.

Moon Pokemon would be cool!

Sounds Galactic

Woo! A Sun Pokemon so cool

20 Zombie

This would be neat.Imagine a Pokemon that is Zombie/Ground that is a dead cloaked man rising from the grave!

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)

21 Air

We already have flying. Use your head.

It should replace the Flying type.

22 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

Just saying Blizzard is a Ice-Type Attack..

23 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

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.

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

25 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...

26 Ancient

When a new region comes out ancient would hopefully come in

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

Yes, an ancient type. for fossil pokemon

i like it

27 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

this is your sound type from earlier

28 Alien

I'd rather paranormal. And that is also stupid

Or Cosmic/Astral.

Pokemon like Deoxis, Azelf, Mew etc.

This is space type._.

29 Crustacean

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

I pitch you face with the claw

Wow. That's an awesome type.

Dumb idea
Mr Krabs

30 Artificial

Porygon line,Necrozma,Mewtwo and others.Maybe it could serve as a plastic type as well.

Maybe a kardashian pokemon

Silvally, Genesect, Mewtwo etc.?

So Drifloon?

31 Gas

It can also represents Steam, as well as Pressure.

Basically Poison type, because gas is poisonous.

32 Technology

We have steel.

It would be mostly Electric/Steel type

Change it to to robot

Voltorb and Electrode a tech/electric type

33 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.

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

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

Glass cannon

34 Radioactive


35 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

36 Beast

A Feral type that's the opposite of fairy would be call, full of angry pokemon.

I could imagine myself riding a non-fire type arcanine while it murders everything

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.

This should be a typing for sure.

37 Swamp

Swampert is Water/Ground

This is stupid

This is grass type._.

38 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

There's ?-type

39 Human

Go professor Oak!

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

Go, me!

Go Chad!

40 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

I am thinking of a monster werewolf with crystals for fangs and claws.A Monster/Crystal

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

Aren't all Pokemon monsters?

41 Baby

May be since the baby Pokemon this might work

Yeah! And they'll be so CUTE!

Since the baby Pokemon this will do


42 Plastic

Chinese version of glass types

should be weak against flying because of plastic bags

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

43 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


44 Mutant

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?

And blastoise could be a teenage mutant ninja turtle

I prefer Nuclear

That is the weirdest idea yet

45 Language

Technically, all Pokémon speak their forms of languages.

46 Blood

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

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

Blood and love should combine.

Fighting type

47 Pokeball

Amoongus and voltorb


wait what?

48 Science

Some of these are so bad!

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


49 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

50 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.
