Up until Gen V...flying type has always been made to feel like a secondary type. A type that sticks to a pokemon only if a said pokemon has wings or if based on an avian creature. In all classical lore the main 4 elements were fire, water, earth and wind...how come flying was never titled wind? and why is it always bestowed on pokemon as a secondary type? as an elaborated ability to be more specific?
The same thing with normal...I never really understood why normal is called normal? in a world were magical creatures battle each other with super natural forces I could never see any thing normal about any pokemon. furthermore, normal has always been a primary type.
Then Gen VI came..and poke standards have once again been shuffled . Onban the new flying/ dragon actually has flying as a primary type. and normal is being used as a secondary type!!
Why do you think that the creators have decided to to do this now? do you think that we will have more primary and or pure flying types? and secondary normal types for that matter? and what would be the significance? revolutionizing and fully differentiating the types maybe?
