    Default Triple Types

    Question: should triple types exist? Why/ why not?

    And if so, which pokémon should be retconned into being triple-typed?

    Now, I'm not in favor of it, but some people are. And I'm going to say that if I had to choose a pokémon to be triple-typed, it would be Drapion getting Bug back and Toxicroak being Dark-typed in addition to the others.

    Triple typing. D8 Wow...that would break the brains of many players, including me. OTL

    But if a Pokemon had to have a triple type...well, why not Ho-oh and Lugia? Fire/Flying/Psychic and Water/Flying/Psychic? That would be kinda cool.
    Signature is a WIP for the moment.
    For now, I have claimed: Mewtwo, Member's Card, Wide Lens, Honey Gather, and Psystrike.

    Again, as with double type moves, this just makes things unnecessarily complicated. You have more pokemon with no weaknesses, more pokemon that are incredibly weak, it just wouldn't work.

    If they were doing this (and I dont think they should), I'd give Charizard Fire / Flying / Dragon and Gyarados Water / Flying / Dragon

    Also give Lucario Fighting / Psychic / Steel

    It would be cool for some Pokemon, like Flygon would be Dragon/Ground/Bug. But it would be too complicated for competitive battling, and could over or under power some Pokemon.

    NO.

    Firstly, it would make things more complicated than they need to be. Secondly, it would make the metagame even more type-obsessed than it already is. Thirdly, it would allow some pokemon to be completely crippled (8x weakness anyone?)

    Oh joy - types that are 8x weak to others. Couple that with the suggestion about double-typed moves and we have 32x effectiveness going on.
    The word "quadragonal" is the only word with "dragon" in it where "dragon" is not a root word. That makes it awesome.

    depends. it'd have to be a pretty rare thing, and not result in the aforementioned 8x weaknesses

    So, this got me wondering, which triple type combination would have the most weaknesses exactly?

    It's easy to mutliply damage using the current system, but having 3 types would make it a bit to complicated for most people to wrap their heads around... Have you ever heard of something that's only 1/3 weak to a type? That's silly.

    Besides, you already get this effect by using abilities as well. Think of how Dry Skin affects a Pokémon, or Levitate...

    Errrm, what type chart are you using? Dragon resists Lightning.

    Another thing, I think it becomes silly as it were if you start having more than two possible types. The types start to lose meaning, save for damage calculation.
