    Default Poll - What color should the new Dragon TCG type be?

    Everyone should know that the Dragon-type is being split from the Colorless-type into its own type. So, what color do you think the new Dragon-type should be?

    My vote is orange. I always thought orange was an appropriate color for the Dragon-type.

    Clefable Pink (Male) - Fifth-in-command, with Normal power

    Fire should be RED, not orange!

    I'm split between orange and gold. I like the idea of orange because most dragons are associated to fire (with obvious exceptions like kingdra). However, dragons are generally mythical and majestic and gold seems like a good fit. Since we already have silver/grey for the steel type, there seems to be a balance if gold is included while orange and red may be too close depending on how the orange turns out. So, my vote is for gold with a close second for orange.

    However, Gold might be too close to the yellow for Lightning.

    i think a dark red, maroon color. Though, there is so little news about this, i'm not entirely convinced that it wasnt a translation error yet.
    wont be gold, that would to much of a symbol of power. It would imply the dragon type being the best type.

    This seems to be the right idea for an orange Dragon Energy card:

    Charizard Red (Male) - The leader, with the power of Fire.
    Blastoise Blue (Female) - Second-in-command, with the power of Water
    Venusaur Green (Male) - Third-in-command, with the power of Grass

    I like turquoise for Dragon, since it's pretty close to the color used in the games for Dragon-type moves. And turquoise seems majestic to me, just like dragons should appear.

    Why should the TCG be modeling their colors off the games? It really should be the other way around, since the TCG has been color-coding types well before the games have.

    It'd be really cool if they used that symbol for the new energy. :)
    Maroon seems like the only colour that's not close to a type they already have...

    But personally I'm not convinced yet that there's going to be a Dragon type more than a decade after they last introduced a new type.

    The games and TCG use pretty much the same colors. Using turquoise would keep things consistent.

    Not exactly. In the TCG, Fire is red, while in the games (except for the Stadium series and PMD) it is orange. Another example is Fighting, where it is brown in the TCG but red in the games (again, except for the Stadium series and PMD).

    Hmm, coincidentally, I've been playing Stadium a lot lately, so that might be impairing my judgment. I get what you mean, though, about the colors not matching between the games and TCG. I just prefer turquoise, I guess.

    BTW, Fighting is orange in the Stadium series and PMD, which is different from both the main games (where it is red) and the TCG (where it is brown).

    I like gold. It's a mix of orange and yellow, which are already Fighting and Electric.

    Fighting in the TCG seems to be more brown to me, however, I can see why some see it as orange. The orange shown in the image I posted is easily distinguishable from the Fighting color.
