    I think he means the double types where one is immune to the other. Ex. Gligar is Ground/Flying, so he's immune to ground attacks.

    Dual-type pokemon immunities to one of their types like:

    Gligar immune to Ground.
    Gliscor immune to Ground.
    Stunfisk immune to Electric.
    Plus the abilties like Levitate, Flash Fire etc etc etc

    Yep. If you don't count abilities I think those 3 are it. There are no Psychic/dark no Normal/Ghost no Fighting/Ghost and no Poison/Steel pokemon.

    Assuming the rest of the table lies untouched (unlikely) the end result is:
    Grass becomes stronger and stops being a pointless type, and
    Dark and Ground are no longer "guaranteed" types (as in, in the top 12 for all lists).
    Actually I think Dark and Light should be super effective against each other

    So I'm slightly irritated because I thought I gave myself a reason to use Lucario for a playthrough, always thought it was cool but never gave it a try. I decided on a Dark type game (can be dual typed with whatever), and for some reason, all this time I thought the Lucario line was Dark/Fighting. I caught the Riolu early (playing B/W2), and proceed to level him up to about 25 ish before I was scrolling through the pokemon in my party and I suddenly saw his typing.

    Now I've only got a Sandile/Scraggy to go with till I receive Zorua.. Although I'm considering just switching my type for the playthrough, since I'm still early in (just hit Castelia city). Might switch to a steel type so I can continue with my Lucario. But dammit, I took e time to catch an Adamant Sandile. ahhhh.

    Would assume they're adding a new type to balance out some of the lackluster types (read: ice, dark, poison). Same thing happened when they released G/S/C to stop psychic types being super OP, and give Fighting types a buff.

    I like shiny Charizard and Haxorus.

    I dislike a lot of the shinies, mostly the ones that are either turned pink, or that weird shade of yellow. I suppose the worse is Weavile, since it has both.

    Hard to choose one, perhaps or or , it's a shame their evolved shiny forms look pretty bad.

    Best are Tentacruel (which I happen to have), Steelix, Aggron, Groudon and Golurk imo:



    Shiny Krookodile, Drifblim, Crobat, Kyogre and Druddigon are awful though:

    Worst part about it is that they made a super secret rare TCG card for it:



    Why choose a Pokémon who looks nearly identical as a secret rare? Past choices include Charizard and Blastoise, which are great, but this is just stupid, like the Archeops shiny card, which I have btw, and it also looks identical.

    Good old garchomp Syndrome. Quite a lot of Pokemon have it actually, Gengar, Blissey, Seel and Dewgong for example.

    But my favorite shinies are.
    Charizard Haxorus Rayquaza (I guess I have a thing for Black Dragons) Nidoking, Gardevoir and Gallade, Ponyta and Ninetales (Guess I like blue)


    I also kinda like Dragonite. I never understood the hate for it.

    The colour is too dark for Dragonite, if it was a lighter green it wouldve been ok.

    Easily one of the best.






    Gen5 definitely has had the best shinies simply because in most cases theyve gone from a single flat body colour swap (as in earlier gens) to more detailed or varied colour swaps.

    In my opinion Gen 4 and 5 have the worst ones. There are a few good ones (like Gallade and Haxorus) but moost of them look dreadful.

    Yeah, it definitely had some nice shinies, but sometimes it went a little overboard, like with Druddigon.

    Btw, there's a shiny I forgot that's at least just as bad as Garchomp:



    Could at least have changed the ruby to a sapphire or emerald or something.
