Smogon already made one actually. It's ight
>>

^this

I wonder if any remote chance that they fix the AWFUL constant weakness of bug/flying/ice types

Any chance a new type comes in Gen8?

I dont remember how long they took to reveal Sylveon/Fairy type since the announcement of XY

*if there is
>>
>>37980445
I don't know why people complain about bug type on the defense. 3 weaknesses, three resistances is balanced. It's bug type on the offense (and bug pokemon base stats) that's a bad joke.

just like volcarona, zard y, and mega pinsir right?
>>
>>37980657
You forgot one
>mixed.
>>
>>37980666
All three of those have actual resistances. Ice makes any other type it's paired with worse.
>>
>>37980666

Pinsir and Zard themselves are shit, the megas were given to make them incarnations of wrath itself with overtuned stats and abilities complimenting them.

Unlike other bugs, volc can just win the game if it comes out on something that can't do anything about it. 1 QD is clean up time, half HP or not. If you manage to lead and get a few off its just 6-0. Compare that to every other 4x rock weakness bugs, and they can't kill shit due to their speed, needing multiple boost, movepools and coverage, or just generally shit.
>>
>>37980616
please make this happen game freak i need moths
>>
>>37980727
I think you're overrating how important resistances are for offensive pokemon.
You shouldn't even be letting volc or pinsir take any hits before they setup and even when you do setup most of the time it will be on pokemon you force to switch out.

That looks like a Sonic enemy.

Personally hoping for a beetle, but an ice moth would be dope too
>>
>>37980773
While that's true, if they do end up getting hit, it helps to at least be neutral to as many types as possible. This is especially important versus priority. Nobody likes taking a super effective Bullet Punch, for example.

Just get a fast special attacking Ice/Bug with Ice Beam, Q-Dance, Bugbuzz, Uturn
>>
>>37983055
>Quiver dance + U-Turn
It's shit also Ice And bug types do not synergize well
>>
>>37980445
I don't bet on a new type for gen 8 but at least a typechart revamp or mechanic revamp that solves the combat system.
VGC or Smogon/Showdown is getting repetitive and unimaginative recently (couple of years)

I always get too heated about this, so all I'll say is I want Sound Type, but it's not going to happen.

It could find a niche with Quiver Dance. Give it Magic Guard, decent speed and special attack and it will work on lower tier teams for sure.

Gen 6 brought in the Fairies
Gen 7 gave a lot of positive attention to Bugs
Will Gen 8 be Ices time to shine?
>>
>>37984761
Gen 5 brought a lot of attention to Ice and Bug types.

Ice won’t shine until there’s a region was actual ice types before the 6th gym, or a starter with ice

I want the sword one to be poison/steel with levitate.
I want the shield one to be ghost/steel with levitate.
Just give them levitate please so pdon has more threats against it. That or give them other retardedly good abilities.

should stealth rock be removed?

Please be joking

>>37980415
Yes but it's literally immune to anything Rock when switching in with some OC bullshit ability that was needed to make it good.
>>
>>37980104

ICE BAD BECAUSE ICE HAVE WEAKNESS LOL!

Great, just make it a fast sweeper and it'll do fine. Maybe it'll die to most attacks, but as long as it can outspeed you, kill all of the pokemon weak to ice, then u turn out it'll be okay at least
>>
>>37987840
What's that? You wanted more slow, defensive Ice types?
Coming right up!
>>
>>37987667

nerfed. Whether you are 2X weak or 4X weak, it should do a flat 25% as long as you are weak to rock. Or maybe 33% at most if you are 4X weak. And maybe stealth rocks can't kill and leave you with 1 hp so we don't get these situations where a relatively healthy pokemon literally has to stay in and die because if it switches out rocks will slaughter it.
>>
Give it an ability that 'clears' the field uppon entrance, eliminating rocks, spikes, toxic spikes and even terrains, without receiving the effect.
>>
>>37988003
Fog for 5-8 turns.
>>
>>37988003
Hazards' effects activate before abilities you fucking retard.

Sage before gen 9 ?
>>
>>37984667
So Whismur line becomes mono sound and Jigglypuff becomes Fairy Sound?
>>
>>37988588
If the ability has a built-in Magic Guard then that's not a problem.

like a dung beetle, but it rolls up snowballs instead. makes snowmen and evolves from learning ice ball.

>>37987667
It just needs to be nerfed. It should only do 1/3 of max HP at the most if 4x weak to Rock. As it is, it severely limits more interesting type combinations.

That's most of Smogon CaP. Everything needed some op gimmick to make it good because Smogon thinks every tier not named OU is bad/nothing but shitmons.
