    The 3DS can connect to WEP with length 8.

    This + the shell on the head. Fix those and I would love Samurott eternally. Or give it Shell Smash.

    I would get a fighting type. In gen 4 I always go for Monferno or Gallade, but Lucario is an option too.

    i was about to make me a new team also. just couldnt decide.

    team 1. scizor,milotic,salamence,umbreon,volcarona,galvantula...i may make it an all bug sqaud still debating the viability. and add drapion(hey!!! he was a bug at 1 point in time!!!) crustle, and yanmega.

    team 2. hydeigon,weavile,lucario,starmie,flygon,ferrothorn....no subs here besides the glaring weaknesses several of them share the teams pretty solid and most counters really arent fast enough to not get 1 shotted the next turn around...also this team wont allow you to set up on any of them besides ferrothorn.

    Wifi Ubers:

    Arceus, Blaziken, Darkrai, Deoxys, Deoxys-A, Deoxys-S, Dialga, Excadrill, Genesect, Giratina, Giratina-O, Groudon, Ho-Oh, Kyogre, Kyurem-W, Lugia, Manaphy, Mewtwo, Palkia, Rayquaza, Reshiram, Shaymin-S, Thundurus, Zekrom.

    So no. Hydreigon is sitting with Deoxys-D, Haxorus, Kyurem and a couple of other in the Wifi BL tier. It kinda suffered the same fate as Kyurem with having some pretty nasty weaknesses.

    Oh yeah, forgot about Tyranitar and Crawdaunt. Still, I don't really fancy the type too much.

    light i was thinking closer to that of light and glass so i speculated bug, grass, water, light, electric,ice, poison dragon and fire to be normal damage, fighting,ground,steel super effective. and the rest to not be very effective at all. sound to me would be a lot of a mystery. but 1 thing for sure ground would be a hard opposite and rock would take super effective damage from both.

    Sorry but that does not make sense. That would make light completely overpowered.

    Light:
    *decomposes Poison,
    *discolours Rock, Steel and Ground,
    *goes through Ghosts,
    *melts Ice, and
    *conquers Dark.

    Light also:
    *is absorbed by wildlife (Bugs not so much),
    *competes against Fire and Lightning,
    *cannot penetrate Water (lots of it), and
    *hardly affects beings of Light (Dragons).

    And Light also:
    *is absorbed by plants, and
    *does not change when there's more Light.

    You can work out the rest yourself.

    No. Steel's still the best defensive type, Fire becomes the new best offensive type.

    Gen 1: Psychic OP, Psychic legendary at the end of the game
    Gen 2-5: Steel OP defensively
    Gen 6: Light OP, Light legendary at the end of the game.

    I agree with a few of those, but I could see Ice and Steel being resistant because they can reflect light. Ice needs a resistance that isn't ice, plus light isn't what is melting it, but the heat from it. You could argue for either side really. Steel doesn't need more, but you could argue for both sides, albeit Steel getting more resistances isn't what anyone wants.

    Ground and Rock are quite odd to be weak against light, sure it can change it's color, but I wouldn't call that a weakness.

    I could see dark and light being weak to each other, but that is just me.

    Grass makes perfect sense, but light not affecting light at all seems a little odd.

    I don't. And that is why I think it won't be a light type if anything. The "Dark" Type doesn't really have anything to do with "Darkness" in general. It's more of a Dirty fighting type style. (See the moves, Sucker Punch, Bite, Beat-up, Foul Play). The japanese name also woulnd't translate to dark type, more to "Evil" type. And that type already has a opposite, fighting. Which symbolises honorable combat.

    Photons hitting ice is energy transfer regardless of temperature, but I understand this.

    Fire cannot exist without heat, but Ice isn't super-effective against Fire. This is why saying "it doesn't make sense" isn't constructive.

    Dark is the absence of Light. Dark cannot exist when Light does, hence the one way weakness.

    Perfect opportunity to try out self-immunity, as no other pokemon have it and assuming that Light Pokemon would just absorb it and become stronger.

    Actually there are some Pokemon that have self immunity thanks to their double types. But surprisingly few. But yeah a type that's immune to itself would be interesting for sure.
