'''[[AC: Back to WMG.{{Pokemon}}]]'''

This page is for discussion of the future generations of Pokémon.

For the games that were announced in January 2013, see '''[[WMG/PokemonXAndY here]]'''.

Theories related specifically to Generation VI are allowed to stay on this page until Gen VII begins, at which point any such theories still unconfirmed would be presumed {{Jossed}}.


[[folder: Full list of type combos not yet done - Have at it!]]

* Normal/Ice
-->'''(4x damage from Fighting; 2x damage from Fire, Rock, and Steel; 1/2x damage from Ice; 0x damage from Ghost)'''
** A beluga.
** Polar bear Ursaring evo.
** White rabbit/fox.
** An Inuit.
** A lemming ?
** A husky.
*** Whose evolved form could be Steel/Ice.
** A Saint Bernard
** A snowman.

* Normal/Poison
-->'''(2x damage from Ground and Psychic; 1/2x damage from Grass, Poison, Bug, and Fairy; 0x damage from Ghost)'''
** A shrew or Solenodon. Both are small furry mammals with a venomous bite. Note that Sandshrew is more of a pangolin.
** Platypus-based Pokemon that's AlwaysMale, since male platypodes have a venomous spur.
*** I dunno; platypi or platypodes (whichever word you wanna use) would probably make better Water- and Poison-type Pokemon.
**** They also have a weird static electric sensor thing on their bills that allows them to find prey, so maybe Males can be Water/Poison, while Females can be Water/Electric.
*** Psyduck and Golduck are actually based on platypi, even though the Pokédex calls them ducks.
** A zombie hog.
*** VideoGame/{{Minecraft}}?
*** That would work better as Normal/Ghost or Ghost/Poison.
** A rabbit. They were considered pests, after all.
*** Dark seems to fit better for that.
** A used tissue?
** A BrownNote Pokemon, with Normal acting as "Sound".
*** Could potentially represent noise pollution, like the Koffing line being air pollution, the Grimer line being water pollution, and the Trubbish line being land pollution.
** A ComMon sewer rat, which eventually evolves into a Poison/Water type.
** The Catoblepas.
** A porcupine with covered in poisonous barbs like the Nidoran lines.

* Normal/Bug
-->'''(2x damage from Fire, Flying, and Rock; 1/2x damage from Grass and Ground, 0x damage from Ghost)'''
** An [[UglyCute adorable]] fly larva.
** Something like a Porygon {{Expy}}, but with an insectoid appearance and the habit of creating countless computer bugs in nearly any system ([[GameplayAndStorySegregation not including the PC boxes, of course]]) it gets into. It would almost be like a canonical version of Missingno, and its Ability could be a version of Moody TurnedUpToEleven with a lot more effects than stat changes.
** A literal spider-monkey.
** A banana slug.
** A millipede.
*** Little-known fact: millipedes can shoot a venom from their antennae to defend themselves. So Bug/Poison would work too.
** Apparently, goats are being genetically engineered to produce spider silk in their milk. One of these goats could work nicely for Normal/Bug.
** A noisy species of bug, like a cicada.
*** Cicada has been done (Nincada).
** A honey bear with bee aspects incorporated.

* Normal/Rock
-->'''(4x damage from Fighting; 2x damage from Water, Grass, Ground, and Steel; 1/2 damage from Normal, Fire, Poison, and Flying; 0x damage from Ghost)'''
** Mountain goat
** Rock candy
** An Onix baby form that's bigger and stronger than Onix and Steelix. As it turns out, Onix's original purpose is to have babies and die, that's why it sucks so much. A recent mutation in modern Onix populations caused them to live longer and eventually evolve into Steelix.
** Fossil pokemon based on extinct synapsids. Its evolved form is a gorgonopsian.
** A fossil Pokemon that's the ancestor of all modern mammal Pokemon. It could bear some resemblance to the above suggestion, as they were related.
** A prehistoric mammal.
** A [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Horned_gopher horned gopher]]. Could either be a fossil Pokemon or the evolved form of a regional mammal.

* Normal/Ghost
-->'''(2x damage from Dark; 1/2 damage from Poison and Bug; 0x damage from Normal, Fighting, and Ghost)'''
** Apart from being ridiculously awesome at defense, it could be some being that can travel between the spirit realm and the real world. And, with Levitate, it would be immune to four types of attacks, including both of its own [=STABs=].
** A reincarnated being returned as an Ascendant Pokemon. It would be able to use Cosmic Power through knowing the truth of the universe.
*** Banette evo that repossessed a doll?
*** Film/ChildsPlay, anyone?
** Zombie Pokemon.
** Schroedinger's Cat Pokémon.
*** It would be a box with a radioactive symbol (subtle or not), a couple of eyes, and with the shape of two cat ears (just to remember what's inside). With a trade, it would have 50% chances of evolving into a Poison/Ghost Radioactive Cat or a Normal/Psychic Cat (Psychic type would be to reflect the experience of being half dead), and it would also give a nice excuse to make a "physicist" Pokémon, like an Einstein/Planck/Bohr-based Cat. The physics-based cat could also be Normal/Electric.
** Another idea of a Normal/Ghost could be a program from cyberspace, similar to Porygon (hence the Normal typing) but [[VirtualGhost intangible like a hologram]] (hence the Ghost typing). The one weakness to Dark would make sense as hackers/bots tend to damage such programs.
*** In that case, it could be Porygon-3, a new and improved alternative to Porygon-Z. Or it could be the American counterpart to Porygon.
** A ghostly Sifaka Lemur?
** I came up with a legendary Pokemon trio based on the idea of life, death and rebirth. The rebirth one is a Normal/Ghost type (yes, Normal-type legendary) - half dead, half alive. The others are Ice/Ghost (death - "cold as the grave") and Normal/Water (life - water is the basis of life). Basically, the antagonist gets the life and death ones in order to control life and death and [[AGodAmI become God]]. Main character gets the rebirth one to stop her.
** A cartoon pokemon. The spirit of an animated character brought to life. It would have godly defenses, but weak attack, to represent a toon's resilience and the fact that anyone can survive one of their gags. It would probably have Prankster as an ability. Bonus points if it looks like one of the Warner Brothers.
*** Or it could be NotSoHarmless. "[[Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit Remember me, Eddie? When I killed your brother, I talked just! Like! THIS!]]"
** A Nopperabou. Could also work for Normal/Dark.
** Comicbook/DoctorStrange; he can {{astral project|ion}}
** A bedsheet ghost.
*** Building on this, a bedsheet ghost that WasOnceAMan.
** How about just... a normal ghost, like above, a bedsheet ghost.
** A LivingShadow.
*** Sounds more like a Ghost/Dark type.
** Victims of ThePunishment
** [[OurSoulsAreDifferent A soul.]]
** The WanderingJew.
** A cleanly white rat, that is also a scientist trying to understand the nature of the world. It ended up in its contradictory state during an experiment gone wrong. (version exclusive) An expy of that enemy from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess''. (other version exclusive)
** [[TheSlenderManMythos Slenderman.]]
** A Banshee, with Normal acting as "Sound".
** An EldritchAbomination, possibly one that WasOnceAMan. Its typing represents the sheer abhorrence of its nature to physical law.
** A cute little ghost that were supposedly the spirits of dead children.
*** Phantump already has [[UndeadChild that angle]] covered

* Normal/Dragon
-->'''(2x damage from Ice, Fighting, Dragon and Fairy; 1/2x damage from Fire, Water, Electric, and Grass; 0x damage from Ghost)'''
** A depowered mythical dragon? It would have average stats, too.
** Some fans believed that Reshiram would be this before its Fire typing was revealed.
** A Dunsparce evo. Dunsparce is based on a mythological creature called a Tsuchinoko, which is a snake that had the potential to turn into a dragon.
** A pseudo-dragon, like a wyvern.
*** A [[VideoGame/MonsterHunter pseudowyvern]]?
*** "Pseudyvern"?
*** Mega Dunsparce?
** Kecleon evolution, maybe?
** A normal type that wears the shed skin of a dragon that eventually became a dragon.
** A Fin Fang Foom expy, right down to the inexplicable shorts.
** Any dragon design made {{Acrofatic}}.
** A penbroke corgi. They're the official breed of dog owned by the British Queen, and Dragon types are somewhat "royal."
** A dragon with sonic attacks. Yes, I am thinking of [[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]].
** A Komodo dragon.
*** Komodo Dragons are poisonous because they have a lot of bacteria in their mouths, so that would be more of a Poison/Dragon.
** A [[MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Spike]] {{Expy}}.
** A tuatara

* Normal/Dark
-->'''(4x damage from Fighting; 2x damage from Bug and Fairy; 1/2x damage from Dark; 0x damage from Psychic and Ghost)'''
** A two faced Pokemon. Not literally, but one that seems nice at first but is in fact a douche.
*** Or quite possibly literally.
**** That could work for a Psychic/Dark, too, if one were to interpret Psychic as "good" in opposition to Dark as evil.
*** So a BitchInSheepsClothing?
*** Alternatively, a JerkWithAHeartOfGold.
** A ScrewySquirrel
** A pig based on the Legion from Literature/TheBible. The demons were driven into a pig, after all. It can specialize in special type moves.
** An invasive species, [[ObliviouslyEvil that is unaware of the damage it's doing to the environment.]]
** A KillerRabbit.
** A humanoid with long limbs a la [[WesternAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas Jack Skellington]] or Slenderman, but less scary.
** A literal wolf in sheep's clothing.
** A literal scapegoat.

* Normal/Steel
-->'''(4x damage from Fighting; 2x damage from Fire and Ground; 1/2x damage from Normal, Grass, Ice, Flying, Psychic, Bug, Rock, Dragon, Steel, and Fairy; 0x damage from Poison and Ghost)'''
** [[VideoGame/MOTHER3 Reconstructed Caribou]]... erm, Stantler.
** Cyborg (too obvious?)
** An armored Pokemon
** [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Four_Symbols_(Chinese_constellation) White Tiger of the West, representing the metal element]].
*** Possible, There's already a pokemon based on another one of TheFourGods (Carracosta, and possibly Ho-Oh/Moltres and Dialga). Though it something like that seems more fitting for a Steel/Electric type IMO.
** Ladies and Gentlemen, [[http://cardiacfluxx.deviantart.com/art/Signimal-and-Audorate-ver-2-215018519 Signimal and Audorate]], made by Cardiac Fluxx!
** A sheep Pokemon, with iron wool.
*** So, basically, living [[StealthPun steel wool]]?
** A Pokemon based on architecture meant to repel ghosts.
** A steel drum, if you count Normal as "Sound".
** Mega Snorlax, basically Snorlax leaning over a metal garbage can.
** A wind-up toy.
** A slinky.

* Fire/Water
-->'''(2x damage from Electric, Ground, and Rock; 1/2x damage from Bug and Fairy; 1/4 damage from Fire, Ice, and Steel)'''
** Steam Pokemon, perhaps?
*** A literal [[{{Pun}} fire-bellied toad]].
** A Pokemon that gives off [[{{Pun}} alcohol]]?
** Salamander, see below.
*** That could also work for Fire/Poison, as that was the original idea the Greeks/Romans had of that creature.
** A Torkoal evolution?
*** Its shell would look like a Ying-Yang, with fire for one side and water for the other!
** Two words: Pistol shrimp.
*** Which then evolves into a mantis shrimp! Or would that be more Water/Fighting?
*** Where's the Fire typing in that? Is it because it actually heats up the water with a "punch"?
** Oil spill Pokemon!
*** A BURNING oil spill, that is. Just an oil spill would be Water/Poison.
** Luvdisc evolution. Because everyone knows that love is represented by Fire.
** A humpback whale with geothermic vents or volcanoes (prevo is a calf with vents, evo is a full-grown one with volcanoes?) that are supposed to represent barnacles.
** A kettle?
*** If they ever have triple-typing, that would also be a Steel-type.
** A living hot spa.
** A tea pot, perhaps?
** A black smoker vent, something that lives in a deep sea thermal vent, a hot spring, or an underwater volcano.
** A boiled lobster!
** A crab that has an internal flame that is only found in a desert oasis and has an ability that makes it immune to sandstorms.
** An aquatic mammal like a dolphin.
** Literal fire coral
%% ** One of the Generation VI event legendaries that has yet to be officially revealed has this typing.

* Fire/Grass
-->'''(2x damage from Poison, Flying, and Rock; 1/2x damage from Electric, Steel, and Fairy; 1/4 damage from Grass)'''
** Wildflare, the brushfire Pokemon.
** Tiki torch or jack-o-lantern; see above.
*** The Tiki torch could evolve into a masked ape-like Pokémon, and the jack-o-lantern could evolve into a scarecrow! And they could be version exclusives!
** A giant citrus plant-based Pokemon.
** A eucalyptus tree. Can learn [[MadeOfExplodium Explosion]], just to give more nightmares to VideoGame/EarthBound veterans.
** I'd imagine that it would likely turn out similar to Smogon's [[http://www.smogon.com/cap/pokemon/pyroak take on this]], except with a less uninspired moniker.
*** Napelm!
** Timburn: The Forest Fire Pokemon
*** Heh, that was actually [[http://www.smogon.com/forums/showthread.php?t=40427 one]] of the names suggested for Website/{{Smogon}}'s Fire/Grass fakemon...
** Something like a flower Pokemon with flame petals.
** A [[BlazingInfernoHellfireSauce chili/capsicum/pepper]] plant. Preferably of the Ghost Pepper or Trinidad Scorpion variety.
** A methane-fueled, compost-like Pokemon based on swamp gas.
** Chili pepper Pokémon! The first Fire Pokémon with Chlorophyll as its ability. Sounds REALLY awesome.
*** Building on this, there's apparently a kind of pepper called a "tyrant habańero." A pun on this (like, maybe a cross between a pepper and a T. rex) could be pretty awesome.
** Another Pinecone Pokemon, to go with Pineco and Ferroseed. Some pinecones only open at high temperatures; heck, some species of pinecone practically need to be ''incinerated'' to open.
** An effigy. If given a Dusk Stone, it will evolve into a Grass/Ghost effigy (with smoke instead of fire.)
** A tree Pokemon that excretes oil or some other flammable substance. It attacks by lighting its seeds on fire and flinging them at opponents.
** A [[SuperMarioBros Venus Fire-trap]] expy.
*** Or a Fire Flower.
** Something based off of the Firestick plant
** [[TookALevelInBadass Mega Cherrim]]
** An incense burner specializing in relaxing scent-based moves including Aromatherapy and Calm Mind.

* Fire/Ice
-->'''(4x damage from Rock; 2x damage from Water, Fighting, and Ground; 1/2x damage from Grass, Bug, and Fairy; 1/4x damage from Ice)'''
** A Pokemon based on temperature sounds suitable.
*** A thermometer Pokemon.
** Or two Pokemon, one Fire and one Ice, that only evolve (into Fire/Ice and Ice/Fire forms, respectively) when both are on the team.
** The living incarnation of HailFirePeaks.
** A Japanese macaque. They live high in the mountains, and yet they soak a lot in volcanic-fed hot springs. And we already have flaming monkeys running around...
** A jackalope Pokemon with flaming fur and ice fangs/antlers.
** A comet?
** A Pokemon that's half solar plasma and half Bose-Einstein Condensate, to serve as the "master" of a second Legendary Trio based on the states of matter. (The Creation Trio's secondary types hint at this with Steel/Water/Ghost, but it's easy to miss.)
*** The legendary based on solids is Ice/Steel, and the legendary based on fluids is Water/Electric.
** A two-headed snake.
*** Building on this, a two-headed snake that has a thermometer for a body and is a legendary that embodies temperature.
** Living freezer-burn?
*** Or liquid nitrogen. So cold, it burns.
** Since we already have a Pokemon based on Ice Cream, why not have one based on Baked Alaska? Maybe make it the end of a three part evo line where the other two also have unique typings? Starts off as a small prey creature with an icy core (Ice/Normal), then becomes an omnivore and covers itself with a poisonous foam to protect it from predators and to hunt - the foam also insulates it from heat (Ice/Poison), finally when exposed to a Fire Stone the foam catches on fire while still protecting its core from the heat. At this point, it wanders its icy home as an apex predator (Ice/Fire).
** An ice demon.
*** An oni?
** A legendary who's very purpose is to be a self-contradiction, aka a living paradox.
** A Snowman wearing hot pants.
** An alien that originates from a body of highly elliptical orbit, like a comet. It's adjusted to survive the extremes of said environment.
** A type of ice or fluid that acts like an ice, that happens to exist under massive pressures and heat -- think Ice VII or the mantle of planets like Neptune. It would be a very unique alien Pokemon, and would be a HUGE StoneWall.
** Living permafrost, that somehow managed to exist in the desert
** A snow lantern.
** [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maxwell%27s_demon Maxwell's Demon]].

* Fire/Poison
-->'''(4x damage from Ground; 2x damage from Water, Psychic, and Rock; 1/2x damage from Fire, Ice, Fighting, Poison, and Steel; 1/4x damage from Grass, Bug, and Fairy)'''
** A smoke Pokemon, of course.
** Flammable gas ([[FartsOnFire not that kind]])
*** Flammable gas ([[{{Fartillery}} Yes, that kind!]])
** A lit cigarette!
** A Fire-Bellied Toad with Dry Skin (Not Croagunk or Toxicroak evo)
** A tar monster.
*** Tar Muk?
*** A fossil Pokemon found in tar pits, becomes poison instead of rock.
*** Pokemon Industries at Website/{{Smogon}} has already come up with a Grimer evo fitting this mold. It's called [[http://www.smogon.com/forums/group.php?do=discuss&group=&discussionid=2939 Tarxic]].
** Radiation.
** A poisonous salamander.
** A spitting cobra that shoots sulfuric acid instead of venom.
*** It could serve as a fire starter. After all, the snake is one of the twelve animals of the zodiac.
** [[WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill Propane]]?
** Monster that uses napalm or some fuel source.
** A cockatrice
** A manticore for an evolution of Pyroar.
** Mollux, from Website/{{Smogon}}
** An agile slasher capable of messing with body-temperatures, perhaps based off [[Film/OsmosisJones Thrax]].

* Electric/Fighting
-->'''(2x damage from Ground, Psychic, and Fairy; 1/2x damage from Electric, Bug, Rock, Steel, and Dark)'''
** [[WesternAnimation/MegaMan He's the fighting robot!]]
*** Could be a new Rotom form. It's been said that he possessed a toy robot before...
** {{Retcon}} the Electabuzz family into three of these. Or at least the last two.
*** Ampharos may be a slight possibility, too.
*** Or have a Mega Evolution.
** The Duracell Bunny!
** [[OurAngelsAreDifferent An angel.]]
** A bare knuckle boxer with electrified fists.
** A Muy Thai fighter who can shoot lightning from its elbows.
** [[Film/KingKongVsGodzilla King Kong]], as detailed below.
** [[Film/RealSteel Atom!]]

* Electric/Poison
-->'''(4x damage from Ground; 2x damage from Psychic; 1/2x damage from Electric, Grass, Fighting, Poison, Flying, Bug, Steel, and Fairy)'''
** ...battery acid?
*** Building on this, a slug made of battery acid, like how Slugma is made of magma. A Fakemon that's based on this is called Teslug.
** A platypus could work, if it's not already Normal/Poison. They sense electricity and the males have a poisonous spur. Of course, that wouldn't make sense if there were females of the species, but Pokemon has made worse biological errors. And if it not being Water-type bothers you, neither is Hippowdon.
** Something radioactive?
** [[VideoGame/{{Portal}} GLaDOS]]? Because of the deadly neurotoxin?
** [[http://greyanimebeast.deviantart.com/art/027-206361331 Elecobra]]?
** An ElectricJellyfish. Originally a pure poison type, the species got tired of people making that mistake and while evolving to get the electric attribute, grew large enough to eat people and now actively hunts them out. The final form has one big eye that moves around its transparent body. A ground type with some kind of water resistance keeps them from spreading out of one area and overtaking Tentacool.
** Food disposal-Rotom.
** A computer virus. Because Steel is the closest thing to tech, it would have a special ability allowing it to poison Steel types.
** Believe it or not, a [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mongolian_death_worm Mongolian Death Worm.]] They're said to be capable of spitting acid and releasing electrical discharge, both of which are strong enough to kill a human.
** A beaded lizard. They're said in local myths to be able to cause lightning strikes with their tail, and they're highly venomous.

* Electric/Psychic
-->'''(2x damage from Ground, Bug, Ghost, and Dark; 1/2x damage from Electric, Fighting, Flying, Psychic, and Steel)'''
** Brain-based.
*** A neuron! The soma would be its head and body while the axon is its tail.
**** Seeing how we now have a Pokemon based around ''cell division'', this is quite possible.
**** Neurohm/Cerebellohm/Encephalohm, the Neuron[=/=]Floating Brain[=/=]BrainInAJar Pokemon, who tends to build up a sizable electric charge around its body while thinking. GlassCannon-type that turns into a MightyGlacier upon evolving to Encephalohm.
** Living supercomputer.
*** Another promising Rotom new form, namely a possessed computer.
** A Manectric evolution.
** A Pokémon based around the concept of chi. On the one hand, it involves meditation; on the other, it's a sort of "energy". This would counterbalance Aura, which seems more aligned with Fighting, as another life-force in Pokemon.
** An electric Victini, but it will represent defeat.
** Grumpig evolution based on a coilgun.
** A hologram, or disembodied mind.
** OurMermaidsAreDifferent: Playful giants accidentally awoken by divers, they now curiously study the world, though they can get [[AndCallHimGeorge rough in their play.]]
** [[Videogame/GoldenSun Jupiter dijinn]].
** An EnergyBeing.
** A dormouse Pikaclone (sleeping and dreaming seem associated with the Psychic type).
** A cartoon idea lightbulb.

* Electric/Rock
-->'''(4x damage from Ground; 2x damage from Water, Grass, and Fighting; 1/2x damage from Normal, Fire, Electric, and Poison; 1/4x damage from Flying)'''
** ''Kirby64'' fans should remember Kirby's combined copy ability of this type, involving a rock tethered to a line of electricity. A Pokemon incarnation of that could work...
*** With the critical praise its getting, it could be combined with a fossil expy of the plasma dinos of ''Xeno Blade''.
** An electric guitar. ([[{{Pun}} It uses]] ThePowerOfRock.)
*** Guitar Rotom!
** Dynamite. Come on, you were thinking it too!
** Magnetite Pokemon? Nosepass could have been this.
*** A magnet Pokemon with a North and South Side. They're normally weak, [[LethalJokeCharacter but are incredibly powerful together.]] The two are fused to gain their power, and by themselves have Plus and Minus.
*** Or an Onix expy.
** Velociraptor fossil Pokemon.
** A glowing quartz crystal, perhaps?
** An automatic toilet with the water absorb ability. Storm drain in dream world.
** A fossil Pokemon based off an ancient rodent. Possibly the ancestor of Pikachu and its expies.
** [[Wrestling/DwayneJohnson The Rock]]: He is the most electrifying man in all of entertainment.
** Ancient prototype of Klink, building on the idea that Klink is an artificial Pokemon. It could be partly based on the Antithkyeria Mechanism and other technology centuries earlier than it should be. A fossil Pokémon.
** Two words: Electric [[WesternAnimation/IceAge Scrat]].
** Since being turned into stone could be equivalent to paralysis, Medusa.
** A fulgurite. Possibly an inanimate fossil.
** An amber Pokemon, because of Eletron name being derivate from Greek word for amber
** A separate evolution to Boldore.

* Electric/Dark
-->'''(2x from Ground, Fighting, Bug and Fairy, 1/2x from Electric, Flying, Steel, Ghost, and Dark, 0x from Psychic)'''
** An animate black thundercloud?
*** Dark [[VideoGame/{{Kirby}} Kracko]] expy.
** A creature that absorbs and gluts itself off nearby electricity.
** Some variety of saboteur-type gremlin.
** Some type of deep sea fish or glowworm? Of course, the fish one might work better as a Water/Electric (like another Lanturn) or Water/Dark.
*** An angler-fish that's learned to live out of water, only appearing at night. Like the Tynamo line, it would have Levitate.
** Blitzle's evolution?
*** Jossed, though a future gen might go and add a Stage 2 form.
** {{Retcon}} Luxio and Luxray?
*** Mega Luxray?
** Perhaps one based off a computer virus would work.
** A blacklight!
** An energy sucking vampire?
** A tiger.
** Dracula could manipulate weather in Bram Stoker's book, so why not something based on him?
** Satan itself. Why? Well, Satan is [[LightIsNotGood the Morning Star, or bringer of light.]] Electromagnetism is an important aspect of light. However, Satan is known by most as [[DarkIsEvil the lord of darkness]], [[SadlyMythtaken despite never being referred to in the Bible as this.]] Thus, Dark is its secondary typing. In terms of appearance, it would have [[LightIsNotGood an angelic, beautiful appearance]] while [[HijackedByJesus possessing traits commonly associated with the Devil.]] It would be one of the legendaries in an Italy-based region
** A huge disgusting rat, the anti-Pikachu.
** Chupacabra

* Ice/Fighting
-->'''(2x from Fire, Fighting, Flying, Psychic, Steel, and Fairy, 1/2x from Ice, Bug, Dark)'''
** Viking?
** A Valkyrie themed evolution of Jynx? She does look a lot like an opera singer, so it would fit with the Scandinavian theme.
*** Or it could be the male version of a Jynx, which would be a Viking.
** Polar Ursaring. Ursaring are basically Fighting-type Pokemon with claws, though they lack the typing. Polar Ursaring would be their Dire cousin to the north (though they missed their chance to put them in Sinnoh, they could still show up in a LostWorld colony similar to a cross between the Mossleaf caverns in Hoenn and the Ruins of Alph in Johto).
** For a completely-out-of-left-field Ice/Fighting Pokemon, something that looks like a tan-coated [[IceClimbers Ice Climber]] with RedBoxingGloves and a triangular body in the visual style of a small netbeing from Anime/MegaManNTWarrior (Rush in particular).
** Beartic should really have been this...
** An Ice/Fighting turkey?
*** That doesn't make much sense... I could see that being Fighting/Flying, but where does the Ice part come in?
** Two words: Fighting snowman.
** Hockey players.
** Polar wolf.
** [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adlet Adlet]]. Would definitely have Snow Cloak as an ability.

* Ice/Poison
-->'''(2x from Fire, Ground, Psychic, Rock, and Steel, 1/2 from Grass, Ice, Poison, Bug, and Fairy)'''
** A Pokemon themed around frostbite?
** A [[{{Pun}} common cold virus]]?
** Pneumonia?
** A snake that injects venom that freezes the bloodstream.
*** [[{{Pun}} Vipolar]]?
** A white furred ambush predator that hides in snow.
** [[https://docs.google.com/document/d/1ZSPA8GIGkxg0DVgP1zBGxDJXYzt5lgMJQfjoh9KYx18/edit Formalich]], based on Formaldehyde as a preservative (poison) for dead things (cold as ice) and deep-space chemistry.
** Something involving hypothermia?

* Ice/Bug
-->'''(4x from Rock and Fire, 2x from Flying and Steel, 1/2x from Grass, Ice, and Ground)'''
** Arctic butterflies.
*** Butterfly with wings that look like snowflakes.
** Frost beetles (look like a hemispherical ice cube with legs).
** Smogon's done one... [[http://www.smogon.com/cap/pokemon/syclant It's called Syclant]].
** A Weta Pokemon. (Wetas can survive being frozen for months.)
*** It could fit as part of a New Zealand-based region.
** A Pokemon based off of a [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Water_bear Tardigrade]].
** Ice worm.
** An [[http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/topic/281078/ice-bug ice bug]]?
** Arctic wolf spider.

* Ice/Steel
-->'''(4x from Fire and Fighting, 2x from Ground, 1/2x from Normal, Grass, Flying, Psychic, Bug, Dragon, and Fairy, 1/4x from Ice, 0x from Poison)'''
** Arctic-exploration equipment themed?
*** Probably a sentient pick-axe.
** The ultimate incarnation of solid matter? It's related to low temperatures...
** A refrigerator? Either that or a metal ice box...
** Another Viking.
** Similar to Garchomp being a "land shark," maybe a "land whale?"
** Muskox?
** As someone said above, a Bose-Einsteinium Condensate.
** Inuit.
** A snowplow inspired monster
** Narwhal, with a giant steel horn.
** Beartic evolution with robotic implants known as Cybeartic or Kumecha in the Japanese games.
** Avalugg evolution or Mega Form carrying a [[Film/{{Titanic 1997}} wrecked ship on its back]].
** Living permafrost
** A living Zamboni

* Fighting/Ground
-->'''(2x from Water, Grass, Ice, Flying, Psychic, and Fairy, 1/2 from Poison, Bug, and Dark, 1/4x from Rock, 0x from Electric)'''
** Another golem based more closely on Jewish legend.
*** Regiland? Regiground?
*** [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Golem More like something unrelated to that family.]]
*** Golurk {{Expy}}.
**** And it would be part of the theorised "New Jersey region."
** A boxing hare.
** A fighting armadillo?
** A whip-tailed lizard.
** A greco roman wrestler
** Gorillas hate rain and can't swim...
** A Kangaroo
** Mega Golurk
** A cat that preys on Pikachu and his expies. [[FridgeBrilliance They are afraid of water, after all]].
** A whip-tailed lizard. It could be an exclusively female species as well.

* Fighting/Ghost
-->'''(2x from Flying, Psychic, Ghost, and Fairy, 1/2x from Poison and Rock, 1/4 from Bug, 0x from Normal and Fighting)'''
** A Pokemon themed off of spirits of fallen masters.
** A play on the phrase "Shadow Boxer".
** [[http://www.smogon.com/cap/pokemon/revenankh Revenankh]]
*** A fighting-mummy could work out as an evo of Cofagrigus. Mummy arms would come out the sarcophagus making him a Fighting-type, but keeping the shadow arms in the back.
** A disembodied, extremely muscular arm. That evolves from Duskull.
*** [[VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Master Hand]]! And [[SuperSmashBrosMelee Crazy Hand]] as the version counterpart.
** A rooster, based on cockfighting. Although we already have Blaziken, we can have another.
** A [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gashadokuro Gashadokuro.]] Maybe it could even be a legendary Pokemon.
** A creature that can go between the physical and ethereal planes at will. Though maybe that would be Normal/Ghost...
** A ghost that haunts bars, alleys and popular party areas where it instigates fights.
** Both Bruce Lee and The Undertaker fit this, although 'Taker also fits Fighting/Dark. [[RuleOfCool And it would be AWESOME.]]
** Literal ShadowArchetype. It'll be a parallel to Scraggy and Scrafty. Both are gangs; however while Scraggy form groups, this version are at war with one another. It'll have the same stats that Scraggy and Scrafty have.
** LikeABadassOutOfHell.
** The spirit of a dead Pokemon trainer. Could also work for Normal/Ghost.
** Something based off [[VideoGame/MiddleEarthShadowOfMordor Talion]].

* Fighting/Dragon
-->'''(4x from Fairy, 2x from Ice, Flying, Psychic, and Dragon, 1/2x from Fire, Water, Electric, Grass, Bug, Rock, and Dark)'''
** Martial-arts based. Preferably based off of Creator/BruceLee, although we do already have Hitmonlee.
*** TheLastDragon, complete with the glow
** Maybe a [[NinjaPirateRobotZombie humanoid muscular martial-arts Pokemon with a draconic wing and tail]]. Its ability would be Levitate.
** A Pokemon based on Sobek? Like how Lucario is based on Anubis. Could also work for Water/Fighting or Water/Dragon.
** A large, humanoid dragon that doesn't have a breath weapon, but has incredible strength.
** [[WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda A Panda?]]
** Expy of Wrestling/UltimoDragon or [[Wrestling/RickySteamboat Ricky The Dragon Steamboat]].
** Druddigon evolution, given that it already knows a bunch of fighting moves.
** Scrafty evo.
** Perhaps another Pseudo-Legendary based off [[WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures Shendu, Drago and their brethren]]?

* Poison/Psychic
-->'''(2x from Ground, Ghost, and Dark, 1/2x from Grass, Poison, and Fairy, 1/4x from Fighting)'''
** Random sort of Pokémon whose shtick is poisoning the mind?
*** The propaganda Pokemon?
** Something based in the Wonderland. It's a surreal looking place, which mixes both mind tricks (Psychic) and hallucinations (Poison). Imagine a Blue Caterpillar Pokémon, or a Mad Hatter Pokémon with poisonous tea.
** TheCorruption.
*** See Mistikal above.
** What about... PINK ELEPHANTS?!
*** [[DisneyAcidSequence Pink elephants]] [[Film/{{Dumbo}} on parade!]]
** A witch.
** An alien
** [[http://greyanimebeast.deviantart.com/art/023-206260894 Psiama]]?
** A spider whose venom causes insanity. It could also be a Psychic/Bug type.
** Keep in mind that, since psychic powers often relate to purification/holy powers in Myth/JapaneseMythology, this would be a huge contradiction, since it's basically the essence of purity combined with poison. Possibly, a poisonous creature that was purified, but is still able to manipulate poison? (An evolution of Muk, perhaps.)
*** Or the reverse: a psychic Pokémon whose happiness can drop below the baseline, which evolves into part poison at ''low'' happiness. And to discourage players from actually getting one that way, it'll have worse stats than its pre-evolution and there will be some other way to get one that has much better stats. Or mabye this should go in Psychic/Dark.
** A garbage-eating raccoon.
** Something that starts off psychic and has a predatory, parasitic, commensalism, or mutualistic relationship with a poison type that allows it to become poisonous too.
** A Fire coral.
** Something based on TVTropes. Think about it. [[TVTropesWillRuinYourLife It poisons your vocab with]] [[TVTropesWillRuinYourVocabulary Troper Speak]] but it will also [[TVTropesWillEnhanceYourLife enlighten you with all the information available on this site]].
** One of those toads that people lick to get high. It uses the hallucinogens to manipulate the mind, giving it a psychic edge. It could also be part dart frog.
** A halucigenic [[MushroomSamba mushroom]].
** Mad cow disease?
** A literal brain fart.

* Poison/Rock
-->'''(4x from Ground, 2x from Psychic, Water, and Steel, 1/2x from Normal, Fire, Flying, Bug, and Fairy, 1/4x from Poison)'''
** Brimstone (Because a Radioactive Isotope Pokemon would ''never'' get approval).
** Sulfur?
*** Better, a geyser that spews sulfuric acid and toxic gases.
** A Fossil Pokemon that is made of tar and the bones of its victims.
*** A fossil Pokemon of any poisonous or venomous prehistoric creature game freak wants to choose.
** A stonefish. Hey, they made fish that aren't water types (Stunfisk, Eelektross), so why not a stonefish?
*** Camouflage has the added benefit of removing it's water weakness
*** It can have either that ability, or Poison Point.
** A giant virus, probably a bacteriophage due to the design being crystalline. Consider, viruses are kind of like poison in that they are infectious and hurt people. Viruses also use a capsid shell, which could be compared to minerals, so maybe a crystalline virus?
** A camouflaged mountain dwelling Pokémon that inspires the saying "never step on what can be stepped around or stepped over."
** The Horta?
** Poop?
*** I don't think that would fly in an E-rated game. : /
** Some radioactive material. See also Poison-Steel.
** Cinnabar (No, not the island), which is a mercury-based gem that is toxic to humans.

* Poison/Steel
-->'''(4x from Ground, 2x from Fire, 1/2x from Normal, Flying, Dragon, Rock, Ice, and Steel, 1/4x from Grass, Bug, and Fairy, 0x from Poison)'''
** The Toxic Needle Pokemon.
*** Or even better - a [[NightmareFuel disease-infected needle]].
**** It could start out as something with a needle for a nose, and when it evolves, it has two huge needles for arms.
*** And the names would be Toxishot and Veninject (the evolved form) with a third, Vaccinscare, requiring a signature move to evolve.
** Mercury Mon (Quicksilver? Alternate evolution of Scyther when it is holding a certain poison-type item?)
** Something based around heavy metals in general.
*** An animate lead plumbing pipe.
** A Pokémon version of [[VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry Dumb Drum]].
*** Or something like a walking waste plant.
** [[VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiBowsersInsideStory Junker!]] But seriously, some kind of rusty scrap metal abomination.
** A Pokemon based off of a factory and/or toxic waste dump.
*** An evolution of Muk with a toxic waste barrel on its head.
** A snail whose slime is poisonous and shell is made of steel.
*** How about a Cone Snail whose shell and venom harpoon are both made of metal?
** [[ILoveNuclearPower Uranium]] based.
** Cyborg Weezing evolution named "[[{{Pun}} Hacking]]". Its shtick would be MindControl (hacking your mind). Also works as electric/poison.
*** Shouldn't it be something like "Hakking" since Koffing and Weezing are spelled in an alternate way?
** Forget [=GLaDOS=] being Electric/Poison, ''this'' would be a type combo for a Pokemon based off of her -- a machine that uses toxin, and is weak to fire (end of Portal 1, anyone?)
** A trash can in a symbiotic relationship with the Trubbish line.
*** Or an evo of Garbodor that has him wearing bits and pieces of a trash can as armor!
** An armored scorpion. It could start out as a Bug/Poison type, but gains an armor to protect it when it's run out of venom.
** A GreyGoo Pokemon
** A two-formed Pokemon based off magnesium, with a solid form and a liquid form. The solid form specializes in Attack and Defence whilst the liquid form specializes in Sp. Attack and Sp. Defence. It changes formes with some kind of refrigerating item.
*** Alternatively, it takes the second form if hit by a Fire type move, or is burned. To prevent it doing too much damage, it will have the ability Heatproof.
** A cute little Pokemon known for recycling. It starts off as pure poison, but evolves to carry scrap/used metal (think aluminum cans and burnt out gear) and uses them for something new. Its first form would carry some old cans, the second form would wear tinfoil clothes and the final form would have the scrap metal as part of its very body. It has a chance of holding a Metal Coat.
** Radioactive material, such as nuclear waste.
*** Building on this, a BlobMonster made out of nuclear waste. The first form would be a tiny, [[UglyCute cute-looking]] green blob peeking out of a toxic waste barrel, and the final form would be a giant, scary looking blob wearing the barrel from its first form as a [[NiceHat hat]].
*** A Pokemon based on the iconic atom symbol composed of a glowing spherical "nucleus" with a face on it and three steel rings encircling it.
** Given other Pokémon based on different forms of pollution, something based on space junk. It could largely be made up of broken satellites.
** An expy of the [[Literature/CaptainUnderpants Bionic Booger Boy]] is a must!
** A family-friendly version of the [[TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering Phyrexians]].

* Psychic/Bug
-->'''(2x from Fire, Flying, Rock, Bug, Ghost, and Dark, 1/2x from Grass, Ground, and Psychic, 1/4x from Fighting)'''
** A single bug that "evolves" into a swarm, like a locust version of Diglett or Magnemite with a hive mind.
** A bookworm.
** A legendary Battra Expy, since Mothra's already got Bug/Fire covered.
** A housefly whose reaction time has been exaggerated to the point of it being precognition.
*** Also give it Levitate and a few Flying type moves.
** An insectoid CuteMonsterGirl based off of [[VideoGame/PaperMario Mimi.]] Yes, ''[[NightmareFuel/PaperMario that]]'' Mimi.
** This would be more Bug/Psychic, but Genesect re-engineered to assault opponents' minds rather than their bodies.
** A dreamcatcher looks like a web right, so how about it being a spider.
** How about a Kricketune evo? It could control others by focusing its Psychic powers with music.
*** Kricketrik?
** [[{{Pun}} A mantis with psychokinetic powers.]] [[DontExplainTheJoke Geddit?]] [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid Psycho Mantis?]]
** [[http://i347.photobucket.com/albums/p451/blue_mechanic/Pokemon/1280780735852.png Tenta]][[MemeticMutation quil]].
** [[{{Metroid}} A Luminoth]]
** A hallucinogenic millipede (these do in fact exist, and monkeys and lemurs apparently use them to get high).
** A parasitic insect who can mind-control its host.
** An earwig.
** Mega Butterfree
** Parasect evo that uses the mushrooms as psychic antennae.
** An {{Expy}} of the Caterpillar from [[Literature/AlicesAdventuresInWonderland Alice in Wonderland]].
** A bedbug with dream powers similar to Drowzee or Munna. Could also work for Bug/Ghost.

* Bug/Dragon
-->'''(2x from Dragon, Ice, Flying, Rock, and Fairy, 1/2x from Water, Electric, Fighting, and Ground, 1/4x from Grass)'''
** Sadly, we already have an evolutionary family of dragonfly Pokemon with Yanma... But what the heck, it's not like there isn't room for another.
*** Not just a dragonfly, a Meganeura, the largest dragonfly ever.
** Flygon {{Expy}}.
*** Alternatively, have another Japanese-based region. Then have an alternative evolution to Trapinch.
** Arthropleura. A [[BigCreepyCrawlies humongous]] [[TurnedUpToEleven 8.5 feet long]] centipede and the largest known land invertebrate ''ever'', and them actually coming from the same time period as Genesect opens up some ideas for a backstory.
** That "Yanmaku" idea that was going around on the forums a few months ago. Bonus points if it wound up looking like [[VideoGame/MushihimeSama Hirow]].
** A prey species that lives deep within the planet's crust, hunted by Steelix and Roggenrola... until it gains MagikarpPower.
** A line of mantis that look more like mantis than Scyther does
** [[MemeticMutation Dennis]] before Team Plasma modified it.
** Monarch butterfly.
** A Damselfly
** An expy of Dean Hardscrabble from Monsters Univeristy. (She looks part dragon, part centipede)
** Mega Yanmega and/or Mega Flygon

* Bug/Dark
-->'''(2x from Fire, Flying, Rock, Bug, and Fairy, 1/2x from Grass, Ground, Ghost, and Dark, 0x from Psychic)'''
** A flea?
** Cockroach, obviously!
*** [[OggyAndTheCockroaches Bonus points if it's introduced in a France-based region.]]
** They could take this to a whole new level of sinisterness where they introduce bug-type Pokemon that get infected with [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Cordyceps.jpg mind-controlling mushrooms]] and then die after a couple of battles.
*** Parasect evo. Do it, GF.
** Beelzebub pseudo legendary!
*** That would be awesome.
*** Beelzebug?
** Or an alternate evolution line for Trapinch. Trapinch DOES learn an awful amount of Dark type moves...
** A female mosquito! It would have an ability that gives it back a portion of hp from biting moves, and STAB Bug Bite/Crunch...
** A tick?
** An {{Expy}} of Paras that is a cricket with a [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nematomorpha hairworm]] sticking out of its rear that evolves into a writhing mass of [[CombatTentacles tentacles]] squirming out of the [[NightmareFuel zombified cricket's body]]?
** Mothman.
** A Tapeworm. It can be 35 feet long and the Pokédex will mention some growing up 100 feet. It will have a signature move that's an 80 power version of Leech-Life and will have an ability that either increases damage of draining moves or increases amount of health taken from draining moves. Its Dream World ability will cause a toxic poisoning affect on fainting.
** A wolf spider which takes the name a bit too literally.
** A black widow spider.
** A No See Um.
** Widow spider. They will be a female-only species, and have a a Bug/Psychic male counterpart.
** Dracula louse.
** A parasitic wasp. [[NightmareFuel You'll know why when you read about them.]]
** A slave-maker ant.
** A [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Celaenia_excavata bird-dropping spider]]. Yes, this is in fact real.
** A pest animal, like a centipede.
** Tsuchigumo
** [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic A Changeling]]!

* Rock/Ghost
-->'''(2x from Ghost, Dark, Water, Grass, Ground, and Steel, 1/2x from Bug, Fire, and Flying, 1/4x from Poison, 0x from Normal and Fighting)'''
** Gloomstone, the gravestone Pokemon.
*** Or any kind of poltergeist, really.
*** I think a poltergeist Poke would be Ghost/Psychic. (Like if the poltergeist had a body, and moved things around with telekinesis.)
*** Ooh, ooh, a [[{{Pun}} Boulder]][[VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy geist]] expy.
*** No, it would have to be named [[VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue Tombstoner]].
** As said under Ghost/Ground, a living dinosaur skeleton.
** A gargoyle?
** A possessed artifact of some kind, kind of like Claydol but more rocky.
** A guardian angel statue similar to the statues found in cemeteries. Maybe a [[Series/DoctorWho Weeping Angel]], but with a lot more emphasis on the angel aspect and as such somewhat more benevolent.
*** Any ancient statue or bust could count.
** A sentient, skeletal fossil. Or just DemBones in general.
** A fossil Pokemon that CameBackWrong.
** Any random object made of limestone could do, as that type of rock is... commonly composed of material that came from dead marine organisms.
** An expy of someone from Pompeii.
** A Ubume http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ubume
** A canopic jar.

And now, the Fairy-type combos!

* Fairy/Fire
-->'''(2x from Poison, Ground, Rock, and Water, 1/2x from Dark, Fighting, Fairy, Fire, Grass, and Ice, 1/4x from Bug, 0x from Dragon)'''
** A Djinn, or a seraph.
** An Alchemical salamander
** [[Videogame/PanelDePon Fairy of fire, Flare]]
** A living ball of orangey light.
** An animal with [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sequential_hermaphroditism the ability to change its gender]] such as a slug. An inside joke of the slangs 'flamer' and 'fairy' being associated with queers.
** A will-o-wisp.
** [[WesternAnimation/AdventureTime Flame Princess]]?

* Fairy/Ice
-->'''(4x from Steel, 2x from Poison, 1/2x from Bug, Dark, and Ice, 0x from Dragon)'''
** Another Yuki Onna, or a Banshee.
** [[Videogame/PanelDePon Fairy of ice, Sherbet]]
** Something based on "Literature/TheSnowQueen"
*** [[Disney/{{Frozen}} Queen Elsa]], with an [[EndlessWinter unlimited-turn version of Snow Warning]] as her ability.
** Mega Delibird.
** The Gingerbread Man. It could have excellent speed but low defense and an ability that's essentially a reversed Dry Skin, healing it when hit by a Fire move (it's being baked by it), and hurting it in rain and adding extra damage when hit by a Water move (making it soggy).
** Santa's elves.
** A living aurora.
** Whatever it will be, it will apparently be especially vulnerable to Steel-Type attacks, so how about something particularly averse to metal?

* Fairy/Fighting
-->'''(2x from Poison, Steel, Fairy, Flying, and Psychic, 1/2x from Fighting and Rock, 1/4x from Bug and Dark, 0x from Dragon)'''
** MagicalGirl. Duh.
** A KnightInShiningArmor who hunts dragons.
** A Cheerleader, making the gender ratio more towards female.
** An AlwaysFemale expy of the Hitmon family based around different dancing styles. Ballet for higher Attack, waltz for higher Defense, and salsa for when Attack and Defense are equal.
** ThePowerpuffGirls, with Levitate.
** Mega Granbull.
** A Minotaur. Preferably a Pseudo-Legendary.

* Fairy/Poison
-->'''(2x from Steel, Ground, and Psychic, 1/2x from Dark, Fairy, and Grass, 1/4x from Bug and Fighting, 0x from Dragon)'''

** A hag-like Pokemon, a la the archetypal WickedWitch. It could also work as Fairy/Dark.
** A cute BlobMonster.
** The frog prince.

* Fairy/Ground
-->'''(2x from Steel, Ice, Grass, and Water, 1/2x from Bug, Dark, Fighting, and Rock, 0x from Dragon and Electric)'''
** A kind of pixie, a kobold, or a mythology-inspired Dwarf.
*** A kobold-like Pokemon that live in mines and caves, that work in groups to harvest rocks for food and shelter. Miners and spelunkers offer them precious minerals so as not to invoke their wrath.
** A [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pink_fairy_armadillo Pink Fairy Armadillo]].
** [[RefugeInAudacity A monstrous earthworm that is 3 staged (type is applicable to final stage) and is a counterpart to Dragonite.]] For the last stage, it has lots of drills and is RatedMForManly, a complete opposite of the feminine nature of Fairy. Needless to say, its gender ratio is biased towards males.
** A lawn gnome. Bonus points if its name is some absolutely terrible pun like Gnomatter or Gnoproblem.
** A sand castle of sorts.

* Fairy/Bug
-->'''(2x from Poison, Steel, Fire, Flying, and Rock, 1/2x from Bug, Dark, Grass, and Ground, 1/4x from Fighting, and 0x from Dragon)'''
** Another wood spirit, a fairy mantis, an enchanted ladybug?

** Changeling.
** A ballooning spider with an ability that gives it immunity to Ground type moves and increases its evasiveness and speed until it's hit by a physical attack.

** A literal love bug. Possibly named [[{{Pun}} Romantick.]]

* Fairy/Ghost
-->'''(2x from Steel and Ghost, 1/4x from Bug, 0x from Normal, Dragon, and Fighting)'''

** A banshee or a [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/White_Lady_%28ghost%29 White Lady]].
** [[Videogame/PanelDePon Thanatos]]
** A CuteGhostGirl.
** A [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuckalavee Nuckalavee]] or a [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dullahan Dullahan]]. Could also be a sort of combination of the two, given their mild physical similarities.
** Any trickster ghosts could do, considering that fairies [[TheFairFolk are mischievous]].
** A Galago or Aye aye
** A wishbone.

* Fairy/Dark
-->'''(2x from Poison, Steel, and Fairy, 1/2x from Ghost, 1/4x from Dark, 0x from Dragon and Psychic)'''

** An [[TheFairFolk Unseelie Fae]].
** [[Videogame/PanelDePon Goddess Cordelia]]
** A black cat with witch-like aspects.
** HunterOfItsOwnKind, except that while it looks like a dragon itself, it is not a dragon-typ[[e.
** An imp.
** [[Myth/NorseMythology Ratatosk]] {{expy}} (no, [[VideoGame/TalesOfSymphoniaDawnOfTheNewWorld no, not that one]]...) The Dark-typing stems towards its penchant for [[{{Troll}} pissing people off just for shits and giggles]]. Bonus points for having some sort of relationship with Xerneas, Yveltal, and Zygarde. It could have a similar name, like "Wyldxwirl".
** A VillainousHarlequin.
** Related to an above suggestion, [[Main/Satan Saint Lucifer also known as the devil]] was once an angel and is the paragon of [[Main/LightIsNotGood perfection,pride and was a "angel of light"]] before he was a fallen angel. or could just be based on a fallen angel in general, the ralts line being their non-fallen counterparts (who are based on regular angels.)with Could act as a [[Main/Foil foil o]][[Main/EvilCounterpart r evil counterparts]] to the gardevoir line. Bonus points if they belong to the [[Main/HumanoidAbomination same egg group as them]] and [[Main/SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute look almost identical to them, save a few key differances and a pallete swap]] to allude to the fact that angel and demons (which another possible name for fallen angels) looking exactly alike. More so if the line looks feminine but has an equal chance of being either gender, BUT is a physically based rather then the ralts line special based, with the male needing an evolutionary stone to evolve into a more "masculine" version that focuses on special attack rather then physical attack and the line in gerneral having the mega forms but reversed (gallade's counterpart working a bit on it's special defense to balance it, and gardevoir's counterpart rolling for physical attack and defense and a boost in speed and not much else.
** A [[ChangelingTale Changeling,]] maybe?
** A troll ?


[[folder:Type combinations that already exist, but only one evolutionary line has]]

* Normal/Fire
-->'''(2x from Fighting, Water, Ground, and Rock, 1/2x from Fire, Grass, Bug, Ice, Steel, and Fairy, 0x from Ghost)'''
** The cow that started the Chicago Fire?
** A Legend with a flamethrower?
** A mountain dwelling prey species? (Assuming the mountain is filled with rock, ground, and fighting types)
** A fire rat?
*** Manga/InuYasha's fire rat?
** A ManOnFire.
** The [[VideoGame/TeamFortress2 Pyro]]!!
*** The Pyro is anything ''but'' normal...
** A [[WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra fire ferret]]?

* Normal/Water
-->'''(2x from Fighting, Electric, and Grass, 1/2x from Fire, Ice, Steel, and Water, 0x from Ghost)'''
** A bottlenose dolphin that learns sound-based attacks and Confuse Ray?
** A capybara, perhaps?
** A muskrat.
** The "missing link" between fish and amphibian.
*** Axolotol.
** An otter.
** Water buffalo
** Anchovies and Minnows
** A whale that specializes in HYPER VOICE! It evolves into some terrifying underwater monstrosity by leveling up with ancient power. The modern form is actually a PowerLimiter because the species ate everything to death in the past.

* Normal/Electric
-->'''(2x from Fighting and Ground, 1/2x from Electric, Flying, and Steel, 0x from Ghost)'''
** Something involving neutrons.
** A nurse shark with defibrillators.
*** That would be a better Water/Electric type. So would any kind of shark, really; they have a sixth sense that utilizes electricity, after all.
*** By the reasoning, every thing found in the grass is a grass type?
**** The question is, where does the Normal typing come in for the Pokémon suggested above? Anyway, any Pokemon found in the grass could leave with no assistance if so inclined, so they don't HAVE to be Grass-type. Meanwhile, most Water-type Pokémon (the ones that aren't based on amphibians or anything else with legs; in other words, the fish-like Pokemon, which generally have fins instead of legs) can't stay out of the water for very long, if at all, until and unless a Pokémon Trainer comes by and captures them, taking them onto the land in Pokéballs.
** Static electricity
*** Carpet monster?
*** Ooh, a pre-evo of Mareep! Or does that make too many evos? If so, then an alternate evo for it, in which Mareep loses most of its electricity, but still keep a fair amount of static electricity.
** Porygon expy, or alternate evo (Porygon 3, anyone?)
*** Mega Porygon-Z
** A literal electric guitar, or a Pokémon playing that sort of instrument. Why? Because Normal sometimes refers to "Sound". Just look at the Whismur line, Chatot, and Meloetta. This could also work for Normal/Steel or Electric/Steel.

* Normal/Grass
-->'''(2x from Fighting, Bug, Fire, Flying, Ice, and Poison, 1/2x from Electric, Grass, Ground, and Water, 0x from Ghost)'''
** Maybe a sloth. Sloths often do have algae growing on their fur.
*** Grassloth?
**** Belphoss (Belph as in Belphagor, the demon prince of sloth)
***** The animal, not the sin. That said, Mossloth could work.
*** Why not have both the animal and the sin as version exclusives?
*** We kind of have a sloth already with the Slakoth line. Perhaps Mega Slaking? Be afraid... be very afraid.
** A Joshua Tree

* Normal/Ground
-->'''(2x from Fighting, Water, Grass, and Ice, 1/2x from Poison and Rock, 0x from Ghost and Electric)'''
** [[http://finalfantasy.wikia.com/wiki/Mu_%28Final_Fantasy_VII%29 Mu]].
** Prairie dog?
** Ground up spices.
*** That would be more Grass/Ground.
** Gopher
** Any burrow- or cave-dwelling mammal would work for this. Well, except for now-extinct ones like the Cave Bear.
** Earthworm
** A traffic cone that evolves into a crossing guard.

* Fire/Electric
-->'''(4x from Ground, 2x from Rock and Water, 1/2x from Bug, Fairy, Fire, Grass, Ice, Electric, and Flying, 1/4x from Steel)'''
** Whatever it is, it constantly gives off sparks, making it both an electrical and a fire hazard.
** Static burns? Like Kirby?
** An Electabuzz/Magmar hybrid?
** Saint Elmo's fire?
** A ball of flaming plasma, much hotter than Rotom.
*** This would work as a 3-stage Pokemon. The first stage would be a Spark Pokemon that's just a blob with little arms, having just begun nuclear fusion. The second stage would be a Nuclear Pokemon with a partial skeleton made of hydrogen and a more beastly form. The third stage would be a Nova Pokemon with a full skeleton made of carbon and a blazing form.
** A Liger Pokemon that is created by breeding a Luxray with a Fire-Type Tiger Pokemon.
** [[http://www.pokesho.com/img_4/4_anime12.gif Pokesho]] has suggested a kotatsu Pokemon ([[http://danbooru.donmai.us/post/show/655824 translation]], has NSFW ads/rest of site.
** An energy hummingbird that has high special attack and speed, poor defense, and can learn Explosion!
** A star, which is somewhat of a Solrock {{Expy}}.
** A Hedgehog that shoots from its fur and a porcupine that has a similar ability but prefers physical contact. (roles reversed on purpose).
** A [[OurAngelsAreDifferent seraph.]]

* Fire/Bug
-->'''(4x from Rock, 2x from Water and Flying, 1/2x from Bug, Fairy, Ice, Steel, and Fighting, 1/4x from Grass)'''
** A fire ant Pokemon would be obvious.
** The fan-made Pokemon Twilight had one of these, and it was awesome. It was a three-evo Pokemon (Mant, Termight, and something else) that occurred relatively early in the game.
*** Better yet, two - Fyran and Fyreen. A female Fyran evolves into a Fyreen.
**** And males become [[WesternAnimation/BeastWars Infernant.]] FOR THE RRRROYALTY!
** A bombardier beetle Pokemon.
*** [[{{Pun}} Bugbomb]], the Blast Beetle Pokemon. Bugbomb mixes chemicals under its shell to create fire, which it shoots from the tip of its abdomen. Sometimes, the chemical mix is too strong and can cause explosions.
** A literal firefly.
** Along with Bug/Electric, an evolution for Volbeat and Illumise. Illumise becomes a Bug/Electric Magical Girl, Volbeat becomes a Bug/Fire Tokusatsu hero.
** A fire worm parasite.
** A scarab beetle. Why? Scarab beetles were symbols for the Egyptian god Ra, who was the deity of the ''sun.''
*** Combine that with the bombardier beetle for a Pokémon that rolls up balls of earth and then uses them as ammo.

* Fire/Rock
-->'''(4x from Ground and Water, 2x from Rock and Fighting, 1/2x from Bug, Fairy, Ice, Flying, Normal, and Poison, 1/4x from Fire)'''
** Charcoal that came to life?
** A Fossil pokemon. Maybe a dimetrodon with high speed and attack.
** A Torkoal evo, evolved by a Fire Stone.
** [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pyroraptor Pyroraptor]].
** A meteor Pokemon.
*** [[PhlebotiumKilledTheDinosaurs The asteroid that killed the dinosaur Pokemon?]]
** A stegosaur with solar panels for its plates. It could be a great fossil Pokemon.

* Fire/Steel
-->'''(4x from Ground, 2x from Water and Fighting, 1/2x from Dragon, Flying, Normal, Psychic, and Rock, 1/4x from Bug, Fairy, Grass, Ice, and Steel, 0x from Poison)'''
** Incinerator! Or maybe a smelting furnace...
** A blacksmith Pokemon.
** A walking barbeque grill

* Water/Grass

** A living superconductor.
** Aurora Pokemon.
** A macaroni penguin could work, given the crest.
** An electric Artic Fox. It would be pretty unique.

** A cross between [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Julbock the Julbock]] and the goats [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tanngrisnir_and_Tanngnjóstr Tanngrisnir and Tanngnjóstr]].

** Similar to Raichu, an Electric Pokemon that can ground itself when needed with a body part.
** A bison Pokemon. Bison were oftentimes associated with thunder in Native American myths, and they would most definitely fall under the Ground-type. Maybe a calf-pronghorn-bison trio?
** Maybe for the next Pikachu {{Expy}} there could be a prairie dog or ground squirrel.

** A [[Anime/YuGiOh5Ds Black Rose Dragon]] {{Expy}}?
** With the Legendary Evolutions speculation below, I can see this happening to the first generation starters - if given access to some kind of Stone of Legends when they hit their normal tertiary evolution point, they turn into Fire/Dragon, Water/Dragon, and Grass/Dragon types instead of Charizard, Blastoise, and Venusaur. Since all of these are reptilian (Venusaur is a dinosaur, Charizard is already kind of a dragon, and Blastoise is a tortoise), it would work better than the later generations (where mammals and birds are included in the lineup.)
** An evolution to Tropius. It's in the Dragon egg group, can learn Dragon Dance by breeding, and [[DinosaursAreDragons sort of looks like a dragon.]]
** Alternative final Snivy's evolution.
** A Pokemon based off of the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Qing_Long Azure Dragon]], which represents the element of wood?
** Man[[{{Pun}} drake]] possibly?

** CaptainErsatz of the Forest Dragon from ''Film/DragonsAFantasyMadeReal''
** A therizinosaurus

** A christmas tree
** A plant that blooms during winter
** A flower that turned predator due to a prolonged lack of sunlight, freezing the Beautifly that came to feed on it, in turn causing them to turn more predatory and rely less on plants.
** A frost monster
** The wood frog, due to its ability to endure being frozen. Naturally it would have the Snow Cloak ability.

* Grass/Ground
-->'''(4x from Ice, 2x from Fire and Flying, 1/2x from Ground and Rock, 0x from Electric)'''
** A potato, yam, ginseng, or any other fleshy root vegetable?
** Maybe a [[{{Pun}} kiwi]] bird. They're flightless, so it could work. We already have Doduo, but this would be completely different.
*** Maybe even extend the pun and make it a strawberry kiwi.
**** Or make the shiny strawberry colored. The normal is green.

** [[MetroidPrime Thardus.]]
** All of the fossil-revival Pokemon have been Rock-typed. Something from the Ice Age?
*** A ''Smilodon''[[note]]"sabretooth tiger"[[/note]] Pokemon.
*** Or, you know. A mammoth. Although there would be cries of "too much like Mamoswine, except Rock, not Ground."
*** Scrat!
** A comet or asteroid. They're made of '''ice''' and '''rock''', after all.
*** Could have a "cold" and "hot" form. The cold form would be a MightyGlacier and the hot form a GlassCannon.

** A creepy matryoshka doll.
** A LivingPopsicle; a Pokémon that was frozen in ice, and is in a near-death status. However it's still aware, and has the ability to move around thanks to its mystical powers (give it the ability Levitate.) It would be a MightyGlacier, and one of the slowest Pokémon in existence.
** The Iceman.

** If it's not a Ghost/Ice type, a Wendigo could work here, as well.

** Bruce Lee says [[{{Pun}} high]].

** A Combusken {{Expy}} without the Fire type. Because who wouldn't like a [[VideoGame/{{F-Zero}} falcon]] that could use Mega Punch or Sky Uppercut?
** Fighting/Flying samurai-themed Farfetch'd evolution is a popular choice.
*** [[{{Pun}} Samurai]] [[SamuraiJack Quack?]]
*** Or Prpos'rous.
*** Absur'd?
*** R'diculous?
*** It'll be a blindfolded ninja whooping crane holding a bamboo staff in its beak. Named Unleek'ly.

** A vampire finch.
** Pegasus with snakes for a mane
** Since pigeons are notorious for pooping on people's heads, maybe a pigeon that attacks by doing just that. It could also work well even when it's not attacking because street pigeons are notorious for carrying diseases.
*** That works better with Flying/Dark, you know...
**** How so? It carries diseases and drops smelly weaponry on people.
***** Because Dark = Evil in this case, and Pigeons are considered vermin, so...
** A spur-winged goose, which is poisonous thanks to its diet.

*** You could probably use something like a Dawn Stone on Female Marowak. ...Which may mean you either killed the Marowak or made her AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence, like the Snorunt --> Froslass evolution. Not really a "higher plane" per se in the latter case, but it's definitely not of this world anymore.
** Zombies, since zombies are often depicted as rising from the ground. Besides, how [[RuleofCool cool]] would a zombie pokemon be?
** As mentioned under Rock/Ghost, a tombstone.
** Something based on the Elephant Graveyard. Like, maybe a skeletal elephant. For the name, [[{{Pun}} Skelephant]].
*** Perhaps a Mamoswine that fell into a tar pit

** A Pokemon based on an Valravn. It would have to be LighterAndSofter however.
** A crow combined with a Tengu.
** Some sort of djinn?
** A whip-poor-will, since their calls are supposedly bad omens.

* Flying/Steel
-->'''(2x from Electric and Fire, 1/2x from Dragon, Fairy, Flying, Normal, Psychic, and Steel, 1/4x from Bug and Grass, 0x from Ground and Poison)'''
** An Airplane or Helicopter Pokemon?
** An Airship. Like, Wailord-size gigantic air ship.
** [[VideoGame/KidIcarus An armoured putto]].
** A lightning-conducting umbrella
** Smogon's CAP [[http://www.smogon.com/forums/threads/cap-6-final-product.3492339/ Cawmodore]]?
** A plane combined with a bird.
** A [[VideoGame/SuperCastlevaniaIV Zapf Bat]] {{Expy}}.

* Psychic/Ghost
-->'''(4x from Ghost and Dark, 1/2x from Psychic and Poison, 0x from Normal and Fighting)'''
** A Traumatic Memory Pokemon, maybe?
** I suggested a Poltergeist Poke would be this type. Some corruption of 'Poltermageist', since that's three letters too many?
** [[OurLichesAreDifferent A lich.]] They're undead sorcerors, so it wouldn't be that much of a stretch.
** A Chimecho evo based off of a mourning bell.
*** Mournecho?
*** Mournknell, the Church Bell Pokemon?
** A Ghost that taunts families by imitating their dead members.
** A pure, disembodied mind/soul.
** As psychic is holy and ghost is spiritual, an angel would fit.

* Psychic/Dragon (Latios and Latias count as one evolutionary line)
-->'''(2x from Bug, Dark, Ghost, Dragon, Fairy, and Ice, 1/2x from Fighting, Psychic, Electric, Fire, Grass, and Water)'''
** Any Eastern dragon could work. They're generally depicted as wise and benevolent.
** A dragon with glasses and a spoon in its mouth
** A tilapia, the hardy fish of the Nile, fed upon by Jesus and his disciples. Also a call back to the first region to introduce psychic/dragon, as it was full of water.

* Psychic/Dark
-->'''(4x from Bug, 2x from Fairy, 0x from Psychic)'''
** Something [[{{Expy}} akin]] to a [[Franchise/FinalFantasy Mage]] or a [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZelda Wizzrobe]].
** A Legendary based on ThePowerOfLove. Because, as we all know, LoveMakesYouEvil.
** Something akin to a heavily [[{{Nerf}} nerfed]] [[VideoGame/EarthBound Gigyas]].
*** Or [[http://www.smogon.com/forums/group.php?do=discuss&group=&discussionid=2922 a not-even-remotely-nerfed Giygas]].
*** [[ContinuityNod Mewthree]], a second its GoneHorriblyWrong
** A Vampire Pokemon.
*** A cute glittering vampire that's very friendly but indiscriminately eats people when hungry. (Unless well trained)
** An owl vampire because owls are wise.
*** Actually, owls aren't as wise as everyone thinks they are, since their huge eyes take up much space of their head that could be used for their brains.
** Why not make it an evolution of Absol? I mean, it predicts the future... It makes sense, right?
** An Elder God-inspired Pokemon.
*** The Crawling Chaos himself. Yes, Nyarly [[EldritchAbomination as a]] [[NightmareFuel Pokemon.]]
*** A mashup of the blue and green ancients from EternalDarkness colored red?(shiny is purple)
** A Grosbeak, preferably one that can shift between a dedicated Dark-Type and a Psychic-Type form...
** A Pokemon based off either serial killers or the criminally insane in general.
** A warlock, or user of black magic.
** The Dark type is characterized by underhanded and vicious/brutal fighting, while Psychic tends to be very calm and reserved, making this a very difficult type combination. Perhaps a Pokemon with DissonantSerenity -- having the appearance of being very calm and stoic, but is extremely brutal and sadistic in its tactics? It could also look like something that's about to snap at any moment but is just barely keeping its psychopathic urges under control (perhaps expressed in its animation, now that Pokemon have those -- it looks very calm at first, but occasionally twitches and growls violently). For appearance, I got nothing -- an UncannyValley humanoid with disproportionately large hands/head, maybe? Possibly with a mask or [[TheFaceless missing a face]], too, to fit with the whole "emotional suppression" thing. Gameplay-wise, it would also fill an interesting niche of a specialist Dark user, something that isn't very common, to my knowledge.
*** Supplementing this idea, a NobleDemon.
** An alternate evolution for Gothetelle. Just like Gallede was for Gardevoir, we could have a male only evolution. Goth fits dark, you just say that it's a meloncholy and depressed Pokemon.
** A chimera of conflicting parts.
** You do realize that that would be full of UnfortunateImplications, considering that Dark is "evil" and Psychic is "holy"?
*** Tell that to Inkay and Malamar.
*** In that case, how about a FallenAngel? They're both "evil" and "holy."
*** It's for reasons like this that people who scream at unfortunate implications in negative depictions of religious are ultimately pathetic morons [[HeWhoFightsMonsters who are doing exactly what those critiques affirm]]: preventing creativity. Also, for your information, Psychic =/= Holy. What, is Abra a divine scion of the Lord now? Is Mewtwo God designed by humanity?
*** Or maybe making the female/feminine male "holy" and the male exclusive "evil" has unfortunate implications? Maybe somebody does not like the idea of a chimera with "holy" and "evil" body parts for whatever reason. Maybe your bizarre irreligious tirade is completely out of left field? Maybe a divine scion and God designed by humanity would be awesome Dark/Psychic types?
** A mutliple personality Pokemon with two faces on either side of its body.
** An evolution of Zoroark. Its speed would decrease, so that its special can benefit. It'll reach the point where its illusions have become so powerful they can psychically harm the Pokemon, or just sneak past them.
** An imp. They traditionally seek out human friendship but do so through "pranks" and "games" that usually make people hate them.
** [[http://www.serebii.net/black2white2/pokestar/brycenman.shtml Brycenman]].
** A witch's black cat with magical powers. Could also work for Dark/Fairy. If Dark/Psychic, it could maybe be a Meowstic evolution.

* Bug/Ghost
-->'''(2x from Fire, Flying, Rock, Dark, and Ghost, 1/2x from Grass, Ground, Bug, and Poison, 0x from Normal and Fighting)'''
** A ButterflyOfDeathAndRebirth?
** How about a louse, or another parasitic bug?
*** Or a vampire flea.
** [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Death%27s-head_Hawkmoth A death's head hawkmoth.]] With an English name that's a pun on "Clarice".
** Deathwatch beetle. It counts down to its trainer's death, based on the old wive's tales about deathwatch beetles clicking just before someone dies.
** [[http://www.mendeley.com/research/biology-new-panamanian-bagworm-moth-lepidoptera-psychidae-predatory-larvae-eggs-individually-wrapped-setal-cases/ Perisceptis]] [[http://bogleech.com/nature/pillar-perisceptis.jpg carnivora,]] a recently discovered Panamanian bagworm nicknamed the "Corpse-wearing Bagworm." It could possibly even be a new cloak of Burmy and Wormadam.
** An assassin bug that wears the exoskeletons of its victims.
** Ninja spider.

* Rock/Dragon
-->'''(2x from Dragon, Ice, Fighting, Ground, Steel, and Fairy, 1/2x from Normal, Electric, Poison, and Flying, 1/4x from Fire)'''
** Good candidate for evolved Dunsparce. Like an earth-themed Gyarados.
*** Ooh, ooh, a [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Huanglong_(mythology) Huanglong]] mon (though it would also work well as a Ground/Dragon)!
*** Then they would add in a Grass/Dragon Qinglong, Fire/Flying Zhu Que, Water Xuan Wu, and Steel Bai Hu.
** How about a living, flying Quetzalcoatl statue with TronLines and glowing eyes? That would kick ass.
*** It could be a CaptainErsatz of this guy from [[Yugioh5Ds by a completely different]] {{Mon}}-using [[http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20100609105623/yugioh/images/thumb/1/1e/CrimsonDragon.jpg/800px-CrimsonDragon.jpg anime]].
** A Pokémon based off of the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sirrush Sirrush]] of Babylonian Mythology.
** A Druddigon evo. The skin on his face is already described as being harder than stone, his classification is Cave Pokémon, and he's supposedly based on gargoyles.
** A living dinosaur skeleton.
** An Aerodactyl evolution. It's the only fossil poké who lacks one. Could take on the Quetzalcoatl idea mentioned up there by another Troper.
** The T-Rex. It's one of the most powerful, and definitely most popular dinosaur in history. Furthermore, it could be an event legendary.
*** Confirmed! But as a Fossil pokemon, not an event legendary!
** A dragon made out of rock.
*** A porcelain dragon
*** Or maybe a crystal dragon.
** Well, Medusa had snakes for hair and turned her victims to stone... Though this might work better for Rock/Poison.
** A Mosasaur fossil Pokemon, the first pseudo legendary fossil. Slightly longer and much heavier than Wailord.

* Rock/Dark
-->'''(4x from Fighting, 2x from Grass, Ground, Steel, Water, Bug, and Fairy, 1/2x from Fire, Flying, Normal, Poison, Dark, and Ghost, 0x from Psychic)'''
** A fossil Pokemon of a Utahraptor.
** A terror bird fossil
** Being the wolves of their time, a velociraptor.
** An Apatosaurus fossil, because it's the "deceptive lizard."
** An [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andrewsarchus Andrewsarchus]].

* Ghost/Dragon
-->'''(2x from Dark, Ghost, Dragon, Fairy, and Ice, 1/2x from Bug, Poison, Electric, Fire, Grass, and Water, 0x from Normal and Fighting)'''
** A pharaoh Pokemon. Dragons are often associated with kings.
*** Cofagirous evo?
*** An alternate Cofagrigus in a future game, revealed to be none other than Ghetsis. Yes, ''that'' [[NightmareFuel Ghetsis.]] It'll be Lv70, and will only be available via event. Why is he a Cofagrigus? Well, they aren't going [[KarmicDeath to let that bastard alive!]] Plus becoming your Pokémon is a ''very'' appropiate IronicHell.
** One of those cave salamanders. Could also work well for Ghost/Water.
** [[OurCentaursAreDifferent A skeletal quadruped with a skeletal humanoid torso fused to its back]]
** Something like a Dracolich. Its first and second stage is pure Dragon. Its second stage is a cocoon-like form (ala Pupitar and Shellgon) that resembles a phylactery. Finally, its third stage is a skeletal/ghostly dragon.
** A huge skeletal dragon.

* Ghost/Steel
-->'''(2x from Fire, Ground, Ghost, and Dark, 1/2x from Grass, Psychic, Flying, Dragon, Rock, Ice, Fairy, and Steel, 1/4x from Bug, 0x from Normal, Fighting, and Poison)'''
** Now this would be darn close to GameBreaker, having only 8 types that do normal or better damage.
*** Actually, not really, [[http://www.smogon.com/cap/pokemon/kitsunoh Smogon has done tests]]. That being said, Kitsunoh could work.
*** Considering that steel alone has only ''seven'' types that do normal or better damage, there's not really a problem.
** Dusknoir looks like he should be this already.
** Haunted suit of armor, as above.
*** Dullahanmon!
*** Similar to [[MegaManStarForce Omega-Xis]]?
*** Nice Idea! Here's some expansion: it starts out as an [[UglyCute blobby shadow with yellow eyes and]] [[CuteLittleFangs sharp teeth]] that wears random scrap metal as armor (it could even use a trash can lid as a shield!), and as it evolves the ghost gets bigger and scarier, and the armor gets more coherent.
** An old west style gunslinger, maybe?
** A possessed [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gashapon Gashapon]]?
** A [[AfterlifeExpress Ghost train]]!
** [[Literature/{{Christine}} An evil, possessed car]]?
** How about a legendary that's ruler of the underworld, like a Hades expy? Hades was in charge of all the precious metals in mythology...
** A possessed robot, perhaps? Or maybe even a robot that no longer functions properly?
*** Better yet, it'll be a robot with BrainUploading. You start with a Ghost/Psychic, and after trading it with a Metal Coat, it transfers its mind to a robot.
*** Or a robot that was a failed experiment that resulted in the death of the scientist who built it, and now is inhabited by his soul.
** A metal pole that collects candy.
** A legendary that used a sunken ship to build its body.
** Possessed scrap metal.
** Modern version of Golurk/Golett. Basically a mecha Pokemon with the ghost elements of the Golett line.
** Cofagrigus is made of gold, a metal, which ties to the steel typing. So, Either a {{Retcon}} or evo of Cofagrigus?

* Dragon/Dark
-->'''(4x from Fairy, 2x from Dragon, Ice, Bug, and Fighting, 1/2x from Electric, Fire, Grass, Water, Dark, and Ghost, 0x from Psychic)'''
** Surely some sort of shadow dragon.
*** [[FireEmblem I see what you did there.]]
** First thing that came to mind after reading this was a line of dragons with a [[VideoGame/{{Mother3}} needle motif]].
** A jabberwock?
** [[WhatCouldHaveBeen Ing possessed]] [[{{Metroid}} Ridley?]]
** [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kigatilik Kigatilik.]] It would have some ability that would reference its killing of shamans.
** Devil Worms
** A satanic leaf tailed gecko of Madagascar
** An ''[[Film/JurassicWorld Indominus Rex]]'' {{expy}}

* Dragon/Steel
-->'''(2x from Fighting and Ground, 1/2x from Electric, Water, Bug, Flying, Normal, Psychic, Rock, and Steel, 1/4x from Grass, 0x from Poison)'''
** Something like the Egg Wyvern From Sonic2006? Capable of firing Seeker Missiles and shit.
** A Pokemon based on the [[Anime/YuGiOhGX Cyber Dragon]]?
** A knightly dragon, like [[Franchise/{{Digimon}} Slayedramon]]?
** The [[http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Hydreigon#Trivia Hydreigon]] line was [[WhatCouldHaveBeen originally]] supposed to be [[{{Cyborg}} cybernetic]] [[OurDragonsAreDifferent dragons]] that incorporate aspects of [[TankGoodness tanks]] into their design.
*** One of the leftovers of Team Plasma's experiments, a Cyborg Hydreigon. It can breed, but only produces normal Deino.
*** Better yet, this will be a Mega Evolution.
** Skarmory evo. Because [[RuleOfCool it would be awesome.]]
** A gargoyle.

* Dark/Steel
-->'''(4x from Fighting, 2x from Fire and Ground, 1/2x from Dark, Ghost, Dragon, Flying, Grass, Ice, Normal, Rock, and Steel, 0x from Psychic and Poison)'''
** Turns out everyone's plugged into Film/TheMatrix.
*** Just expy those attack machines from The Matrix
** SpikesOfVillainy. Think a cross between Darkrai, Arceus, and Giratina, with just a hint of Heatran. Basically, a big old dark spooky thing made of untempered steel. For what it is... Sort of a junkyard version of Grimer and Muk? Magnetite/ton, with much austerity?
** [[VideoGame/JetSetRadio Zero Beat]] expy.
** A [[Franchise/MassEffect Reaper]]
** Black Knight
** A slot machine Pokemon, because it's the one-armed bandit?
** A Terminator-based Pokemon.
** A snake with two die for eyes.
** A line based on [[GarbageWrestler Dump Matsumoto]].
** An [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Al_%28folklore%29 Al]], they are said to help create more imps by killing off unborn babies of other species and replacing them with developing imps. It is also said to be made of copper, brass, and/or iron.
** Something based off the [[JustForPun Darksteel]] [[http://gatherer.wizards.com/pages/card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=191312 Colossus]].
** The mechanical bull you see at a rodeo.
** [[VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys Freddy and co.]]

As for the Fairy-type combos:

* Fairy/Water
-->'''(2x from Poison, Electric, and Grass, 1/2x from Bug, Dark, Fighting, Fire, Ice, and Water, 0x from Dragon)'''
** A water nymph, mermaid, or kelpie.
** An [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Undine_%28alchemy%29 ondine]]. It could have an Expy ability of Darkrai's Bad Dreams.
** [[Videogame/PanelDePon Fairy of water Elias and sea fairy Neris]]
** A water-based fairy that could be a homage to [[WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse Lapis Lazuli]].

* Fairy/Electric
-->'''(2x from Poison and Ground, 1/2x from Bug, Dark, Fighting, Electric, and Flying, 0x from Dragon)'''
** A literal electricity fairy.
** A hybrid between a monkey and [[GripingAboutGremlins a gremlin.]] It has a sinister look, and has a bad habit on toying with machines and gadgetries.
** A playful and cuddly teddy bear that accidentally shocks those it cuddles with with its built up static electricity.
** Another mouse.
** A mischievous sprite with a joy buzzer for a tail and Prankster as its ability.

* Fairy/Grass
-->'''(4x from Poison, 2x from Steel, Fire, Flying, and Ice, 1/2x from Dark, Fighting, Electric, Grass, Ground, and Water, 0x from Dragon)'''
** A nymph, or spirit of the woods.
** [[Videogame/PanelDePon Fairy of nature, Thiana]]
** A mouse starter.
** Mega Jumpluff (it's in the Fairy egg group).
** A magic beanstalk.
** A dryad-based Cherrim evo, with some elements of the [[Franchise/{{Touhou}} Sagiyou Ayakashi tree]].

* Fairy/Flying
-->'''(2x from Poison, Steel, Electric, Ice, and Rock, 1/2x from Dark and Grass, 1/4x from Bug and Fighting, 0x from Dragon and Ground)'''
** A sylph, or a Tinkerbell-like fairy with wings. Maybe a silly bird with fairy powers.
** A young fairy based on [[VideoGame/ChildOfLight Aurora]], who evolves into an adult via Moon stone. [[spoiler:The weakness to Poison is justified by in-game events.]]
** [[Videogame/PanelDePon Windy and/or Phoenix]]
** A [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Purple-crowned_Fairywren purple-crowned fairywren]].
** A cherub
** One of those cloud things in old artwork representing the winds.
** [[VideoGame/MarioandLuigiDreamTeam The Zeekeeper]]?

* Fairy/Dragon
-->'''(2x from Poison, Steel, Fairy, and Ice, 1/2x from Bug, Dark, Fighting, Electric, Fire, Grass, and Water, 0x from Dragon)'''
** Dragons and Fairies seem to be opposed in the Pokéverse, so it's difficult to see... Maybe a good dragon, or something like Falcor.
** A [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Faerie_dragon faerie dragon]] expy, of course!
** [[Videogame/PanelDePon Dragon!]]
** [[{{VideoGame/Dota 2}} Puck!]]
** The [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drake_(fairy) Drake]].
** An ouroborus?
** Puff the Magic Dragon, from that old kids song.
*** Mega Dragonite, heavily based on Puff the Magic Dragon.
** A cute little dragon/lizard.


[[folder: New types and miscellaneous type-related WMG]]
* Non-specific
** Eeveeloutions for the rest of the types (including a Normal-type one for giggles) and then, if Game Freak really wants to go crazy, all the double-type combos.
*** If they do all of the double type combos, then they might be evolutions for the Eeveelutions!
** This is highly unlikely to occur, but if they eventually started to make some Pokemon have ''three'' types, the possibilities are insane.

* '''Doody''' type. A type based on fecal matter; all Doody-type Pokemon would be extremely stinky. Attacks can either involve yucky doody or stinky farts. Doody type Pokemon generally have high defense because their smell drives off physical attackers. They have low speed for the most part.
** Type matchup - offensive: Super effective against Fairy (Fairies hate yucky things), Fighting (stink breaks their physical concentration) and Psychic (stink breaks their mental concentration). Not very effective against Water (thins out the yucky doody), Fire (burns the doody), Poison (doody is organic material and susceptible to poison)
** Type matchup - defensive: Weak to Grass (leaves wipe up the doody), Fire, Poison. Resists Fighting, Psychic, and Fairy.
** Possible old Pokemon Retypings:
*** Simipour, Simisear, Simisage - Water/Doody, Fire/Doody, Grass/Doody (monkeys tend to throw their feces)
*** Snorlax - Normal/Doody (he's so constipated that his body is over 50% doody)
*** Diglett & Dugtrio - Ground/Doody (the rest of their bodies will finally be revealed next generation to be extremely wriggly stinky doodies)

* '''Light''' type (or Sun type). You already have your first move: Solarbeam ([[FridgeLogic Seriously, when it's a concentrated blast of intense sunlight, wouldn't that be more of a fire attack and not a grass attack?]]). Given Dark is actually "Evil" type in Japan, Light type would be called "Good" or "Pure" there.
** Type chart: Supereffective vs Ghost and Dark; not very effective vs Water and Ice; no effect Steel. Resistant to Bug and Ground; immune to Dark.
** Alternate type chart: Supereffective against Dark; not very effective vs Rock, Ice, and Ground; no effect vs Steel and Fire. Weak to Poison and possibly Ground [[note]]as ground blocks out light, eg caves[[/note]], resistant to, immune to Dark and Fire. Not very effective or no effect vs. Grass [[note]]photosynthesis[[/note]].
** Alternately, Light is weak to Dark instead of supereffective and immune.
*** Alternatively, both Dark and Light are weak to one another.
** Perhaps it wouldn't have to be a foil to Ghost or Dark Types in any way.
*** It wouldn't ''have'' to be, but if it wasn't, it would be a serious missed opportunity to get rid of Ghost/Dark's pesky lack of weaknesses.
** While the Fighting-type already essentially fills the role of "hero" [[note]]For comparison's sake, if Zelda games were subject to Pokemon types, Ganondorf would be Dark, and Link would be Fighting. And Zelda is Psychic, explaining why Ganondorf completely owns her, and yet she tends to own Link whenever the opportunity arises. Another example? Mario. Bowser would be Dark/Dragon or Dark/Fire, and Mario would be Fighting (Fighting/Fire with the Fire Flower).[[/note]], if Dark = Rogue and Fighting = Knight, Light may = Paladin. Fighting is the opposition of Dark, but Light could be its ''exact'' opposite.
** Complete with Eevee evolution: Soleon!
*** Or Photeon, as a terrible pun on "photon".
** Not to mention the resident Solrock (Rock/Sun) and Bellossom (Grass/Sun), as well as all the fun stuff that you could use a Sun Stone for.
*** If a Sun type is made, no doubt a Moon type will be coming out shortly after. Pokemon like Lunatone (Rock/Moon) and Clefairy and Clefable (they're believed to come from the moon) would be good Pokemon that already fit the category.
** If this does go through, we might see a sort of mirror-image of Absol - white skin, black fur, and a reversal of that yin-yang symbol on its forehead. Whether it actually causes disasters or just buys into the belief that Absol does is up in the air.
** One reason we may never see a Light-type: if you look at the attack descriptions, a number of special attacks are described as attacking with light in some form or another, regardless of type: Solarbeam (Grass), Luster Purge (Psychic), Flash Cannon (Steel), Power Gem (Rock, somehow - how can a rock be a beam?), and on the extreme end, Judgment, which can be ''any type in the game''. Including Dark-type. It seems that "light" is less an actual type and more a generic "element" used by Special Attacks, particularly those that one normally would not expect special attacks from. Of course, this doesn't prevent the possible inclusion of a "Pure" type that can be renamed to Light...
*** Actually, it kind of does. Psychic is already purity, essentially. The Japanese tend to modernize their holy priestess powers from mythology into psychic powers, which is why the psychic type is super-effective against Poison and sometimes associated with light (Morning Sun, Luster Purge). So a "Purity" type would be redundant.
**** I dunno, Mewtwo doesn't seem "pure" to me... I think there are other examples that debunk this theory, too.
*** The Psychic type effective against Poison is due to "psychic healing," not because Psychic represents purity. It's called the Esper type in Japan, and is used in exactly the same context as in the West. A hypothetical Light type could represent both holiness/purity and photons, and could cover both light-based moves as well as healing moves. Separate Sun and Moon types wouldn't be necessary.
** '''Daeva''' Type. According to Zoroaster, Daevas were embodiments of evil posing as gods and were to be rejected but more importantly, they were commonly known as the ''shining ones''. There's your "light" type. Who else was known went by the title shining one? LouisCypher! People are going to call Pokémon the devil anyway, why not make use of the many forms he's described as? Aren't fairies also associated with light? Aren't the FairFolk often associated with evil? There could still be some Umbreon/Absol like members to prove they aren't all evil, but they would still be prime examples of GoodIsNotSoft.
** Pokemon that could be retyped as Light (in both senses of the type): Staryu (Water/Light), Togepi (Normal/Light), Togetic/Togekiss (Light/Flying), Ampharos (Electric/Light), Bellossom (Grass/Light), Sunkern/Sunflora (Grass/Light), Blissey (Rubber/Light), Ho-Oh (Flying/Light), Volbeat/Illumise (Bug/Light), Absol (Dark/Light), Cherim Sunshine Form (Grass/Light), Lumineon (Water/Light), Cresselia (Psychic/Light), Shaymin Land Forme (Grass/Light).
** We already have a "good" type with Fighting types. Light types could refer to the actual light itself.

* '''Wind''' type (or Air or Gas type). It could be a distinct type from Flying; in fact, it should be super effective against it. We have Razor Wind and Air Cutter, perhaps Twister and Gust?
** Wind could be a generic "gaseous" type that covers both Air, Dust, Smoke, and Steam. Examples of existing pokemon that could be retconned with that type could include: Gastly/Haunter/Gengar (Ghost/Wind), Koffing/Weezing (Poison/Wind), Torkoal (Fire/Wind), Castform (Normal/Wind, Fire/Wind, Water/Wind, Ice/Wind), Drifloon/Drifblim (Ghost/Wind), Rotom Fan forme (Electric/Wind), Tornadus (Wind/Flying).
*** Type chart: Resistant to Fighting, Ground. Weak to Psychic, Wind. Ineffective against Dragon, Grass, Magic, Rock, Steel. Super-effective against Fire, Flying, Ground, Wind.
** Could cause some issues, as all Flying attacks that could possibly be Special (aside from Chatter) would be shoved into Wind, as a small-scale reversal of the Special-Physical split. If it ever did become a type and needed non-flying moves, let's go with Smog and Twister.
*** Precisely, Wind attacks would be virtually every special Flying attack plus a few moves of other types. What's next, Dark type being split into Dark and Trickster? Fighting being split into Fighting and Qi? That's why a Wind or Air type distinct of Flying is ridiculous. It doesn't make sense and in many cases could just be covered by a dual type.
*** So in order avoid the physical-special split, you'd only need to make moves with the word "wind" in their names to Wind-type moves. Tailwind is the only Flying-type move that would need to be changed to Wind, while Razor Wind and Whirlwind are both Normal-type moves. As shown above, most retyped Wind-type pokemon are dual-typed and use other moves.

* '''Sound''' type. There are plenty of attacks that are sound related (Screech, Hyper Voice, Sing, etc.) and plenty of sound related Pokémon with only one type (Jigglypuff, Exploud, Chimecho, etc.). The only problems are the strengths and resistances.
** Type chart: Supereffective vs. Water[[note]]sound travels three times faster in water[[/note]], Dragon[[note]] rare animals don't like to be disturbed[[/note]], Psychic[[note]]interrupts concentration[[/note]] and Steel[[note]]sound travels even faster in metal, plus the vibrations would cause extra damage[[/note]]; not very effective vs. Flying[[note]]hard to hear when it's windy[[/note]]; has no effect vs. Ghost[[note]]same reason as Normal and Fighting[[/note]]. Resistances and weaknesses unknown.
*** Weaknesses: Sound [[note]]hard to hear one noise over another[[/note]] and Poison [[note]]hard to talk loudly when you're sick[[/note]]. Immunities: Fighting [[note]]can't punch a sound wave[[/note]]. Resistances: Electric [[note]]electricity and sound waves are both forms of electromagnetic energy[[/note]], Ghost [[note]]ghost noises can't be heard without special equipment, and even then there's controversy as to what they really are[[/note]].
** Retyped pokemon: Igglybuff/Jigglypuff/Wigglytuff (Rubber/Sound), Voltorb/Electrode (Electric/Sound), Whismur/Loudred/Exploud (Normal/Sound), Spinda (Normal/Sound), Chingling/Chimecho (Psychic/Sound), Kricketot/Kricketune (Bug/Sound), Chatot (Sound/Flying).

* '''Space''' type. It'd be based a bit on the abilities of old movie monsters, and since there are only a few Pokemon based off of aliens so far, there would be little {{retcon}}ning, if at all, and the field will be wide for newbies.
** Type chart: Supereffective vs. Psychic, none that are resistant or immune to it. Immune to Normal; resistant to Fighting and Dark; weak against itself, Electric, and Steel.
** It could also be called '''Cosmic''' type, and include not just space aliens but interdimensional aliens too.
*** Given Palkia representing space, Cosmic type seems more likely as a name.
*** Space and Time could both be represented under Cosmic. Maybe as part of the Generation it appears in there could be a conflict between Cosmic and Chaos types (Cosmic also meaning Order). ''Pokemon Cosmos and Chaos''?
** Pokemon that would be retyped: Deoxys (Psychic/Cosmic), Cleffa/Clefairy/Clefable (Normal/Cosmic), Lunatone/Solrock (Rock/Cosmic), Unown (Psychic/Cosmic), Jirachi (Psychic/Cosmic), Uxie/Mesprit/Azelf (Psychic/Cosmic), Dialga (Steel/Cosmic), Palkia (Water/Cosmic), Giratina (Ghost/Cosmic), Arceus (Cosmic), Elgyem/Beheeyem (Psychic/Cosmic).

* '''Nuclear''' type? Weak to Fire, Ground (as both can cause meltdown), and Electric (as nuclear energy is used for electricity); resistant to Water (since it can help calm down meltdowns) and Flying (radiation can travel on the wind); immune to Fighting (just makes sense). Super effective on Grass (radiation kills plants), Normal (radiation kills most animals), Fighting (radiation can harm people), and Dragon (see Normal); not very effective on Steel (certain metals can block radiation), Rock (certain rocks can block radiation), Bug (many invertebrates can survive high levels of radiation), and Ground (hiding underground can protect you from fallout); no effect on Water (water can calm down meltdowns) and Electric (Nuclear energy is used for clean electricity).
** Nuclear type could also work as a Light/Poison dual-type.
*** That would depend on the definition of a Light type, of which there are many. If by Light type you're referring to a holy type (which basically is Psychic type), then that would make no sense, whereas a Light type as in bright lights and waves of photons could make sense combined with Poison for a nuclear Pokemon (though this definition of Light type is basically Electric type or Fire type).
** Wouldn't Nuclear be counted under Pollution (see below)?
*** Would Ice be counted under Water? Logically speaking, Ice makes more sense under Water type than a hypothetical Nuclear type does under an also hypothetical Pollution type. And Ice being a distinct type from Water likely means Nuclear would also be separate.
** The Pollution type actually states "radioactive isotopes," so yes, Nuclear is considered part of Pollution by whoever suggested it in the first place.

* '''Pollution''' type. Splits off from poison, making Weezing, Muk and Trubbish among the first members and allowing radioactive isotopes and other non biological toxins into Pokemon form. Steel also gets poisoning moves in the form of heavy metals.

* '''Rubber''' type (including plastics). Some existing pokemon could be retyped like so: Ditto (Rubber), Spoink/Grumpig (Psychic/Rubber), Happiny/Chansey (Normal/Rubber), Blissey (Light/Rubber), Politoed (Water/Rubber), Grimer/Muk (Poison/Rubber), Tangela/Tangrowth (Grass/Rubber), Munchlax/Snorlax (Normal/Rubber), Lickitung/Lickilicky (Normal/Rubber), Wobbuffet (Psychic/Rubber), Igglybuff/Jigglypuff/Wigglytuff (Rubber/Sound), Trubbish/Garbodor (Poison/Rubber). Bounce would be a Rubber-type attack, not Flying!
** Strengths: Immune to Electric attacks and Super-effective against Electric Pokemon. Resistant to Ice (since cold helps rubber bands have staying power). Causes a recoil with Physical attacks (maybe this could be an ability). Immune to the Freeze status condition. Weaknesses: Fire-type (melting) and Steel-type (cutting). More easily afflicted by the Burn status condition.

* '''Bird''' type, to replace Flying. Missingno gives us some evidence that "Bird" used to be a type that was replaced with Flying, but it makes a whole lot more sense. Almost everything that's Normal/Flying is a bird, and the type matchups (and even more obviously, the movesets) are clearly based around that. It makes sense that birds would be weak to Rock (fragile bones weak to heavy, crushing attacks), but our first pure Flying-type is a genie on a cloud that flies through magic rather than wings. Why in the world would he be weak to Rock? It's also rather egregious in that he can't use most of the physical Flying moveset, since they're based around beak- and wing-based attacks, and he has neither. It makes more sense to change the type to "Bird", since that's obviously what the design team based the type around. And we already have "grass", "bug", and "dragon" as types, so I don't see how naming a type after a specific category of organisms would cause problems if it's already being done.
** Except that would mean you're suddenly calling Dragonite, Butterfree, Drifblim, and Tornadus would suddenly be "Birds."

* None. There are seventeen elemental types already -- do we ''really'' need more?
** We could have a unique EldritchAbomination Pokemon with no type. It would be a legendary that embodies the chaos preceding the universe, and is essentially a glitch Pokemon. It's also an OmnicidalManiac who wants the primordial chaos to roam free, and ultimate enemy of Arceus. Much like the idea of Kaos being a god and thing.

* Ice will be fixed. It will gain resistances to Grass, Dragon, Normal, and Flying. Water will no longer resist it, and it will not be weak against Rock or Fighting. (Hell, I don't see why anything should be weak against Fighting, almost all of its moves could easily fit in Normal.)
** They could also become strong against and/or powerful against Poison types. My reasoning is that most pathogens are killed off or slowed by cold.
** Ice will resist water, but Scald will become super effective against it.

* Poison types will be fixed. They will become super-effective to Normal types (it's not like you can defend against Poison).
** They'd also be strong against Fairy, since faeries represent nature.
*** Second part is confirmed.

* '''Magic''' type (or Mana type). When Pokemon finally goes into a medieval fantasy setting, there will be pokemon based more on wizardry and magic, and the magic type will be born from that. For typing, they're only vulnerable to themselves, and otherwise deal neutral damage to everything except for Steel (duh) and Dark.
** Magic currently seems to mostly fall under Fairy Type.
** Possible resistances/weaknesses: Resistant to Dark, Fire, Ground, Water, Wind; Weak to Dragon, Rock, Steel; Not very effective against Fighting, Normal; Supereffective against Ghost, Poison, Psychic. Retyped pokemon: Kadabra/Alakazam (Psychic/Magic), Dunsparce (Normal/Magic), Mismagius (Ghost/Magic), Murkrow (Magic/Flying).

* '''Science''' Type. They used it in the TCG Game Boy game. Mewtwo could be retconned to be Psychic/Science. It could be resistant to Ghost, Dragon, and Psychic, because they don't have a scientific basis. Alternatively, it could be weak to Ghost, Dragon, and Psychic because they defy science.
** Well, in the TCG game, "science type" was basically Poison type...

* '''Cyber''' type. This type would cover artificially-created pokemon that are digital- or electronic-based, like the Porygon family.

* Magma, Paper, Machine, and Glass (or Crystal). Of course, most of these work better as dual-types: Magma is Fire/Rock, Paper is Ghost or Ghost/Grass, Machine is Cyber/Steel, and Glass (or Crystal) is Psychic/Rock or Light/Rock.
** Some of them might not necessarily even need to be dual types, and could just as easily be individual types. Magma could just as easily be pure Fire if the Magmar line is any indication, Paper could also easily be Grass, Machine based on existent mechanical Pokemon appears to Steel with an occasional secondary type, and Glass or Crystal (based on the crystals covering Gigalith and Boldore) appears to fall under pure Rock.

* '''Blood''' type?

* To paraphrase the X&Y guessing page, '''Zombie'''. Classic hoodoo magic and Afro-Caribbean folklore creatures would be "pure" zombies. Hollywood American walking corpses would be zombie/ground or zombie/dark. Frankenstein monsters would be zombie/[[KillItWithFire steel]] along with [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration The Borg maybe]]. Fungal parasites for Zombie/grass, worm and arthropod parasites for zombie/bug. Strong against water(infected fluids seep in) and electric (lightning brought the monster to life). Weak to dragon (Nidhogg chews on corpses), psychic(the purpose of zombies is to control them) and fairy (the dead can become elves, which seem to be fairies in Pokemon). Resists itself (zombies usually work together), poison (hoodoo zombies are created by using poison to make the victim appear dead), electric and ground. Resisted by ice, grass(absorbs leaking body fluids as easily as water while thick cell wall blocks infection), and steel.

* '''Heavenly''' or '''Holy''' types, based on Yazatas, Fylgjas, Guardian Angels and the like. It would be strong against fairy (it is their duty to defend us against otherworldly creatures) and ghost (they remove the souls that refuse to move on). They would be weak to grass (angels are 'celestial bodies', grass gets energy from the sun, a celestial body so they would make [[FertileFeet grass grow faster]]) and fighting (the yield to righteous fury). They would resist the naturally occurring energies of fire and electric as well as their rival fairy type but be resisted by psychic and fighting, physical beings in tune with their spirituality. Also resisted by grass and normal (they are supposed to protect normals and their environment). They would be strong against and weak to dark because they ''can'' destroy evil but seeing it come from those they are assigned to protect is demoralizing.


[[folder:There will be Pokémon based on...]]

If you have a concept for a specific type combo, put it in one of the above folders. If you have a more general concept, put it below in "other future Pokémon concept ideas".

[[WMG: ...various creatures.]]
* A koala: Japan loves them (probably the Normal type ComMons).
** Or maybe a Koala-species Grass-type starter
*** Or a Fire-type starter. Some FridgeBrilliance here : they're very fond of eucalyptus and are known for not drinking much.
* A flea: Poison/Bug type.
* A tiger. It seems to be the most popular idea for a Gen 6 Fire starter family.
* A dolphin!
** Water/Psychic, to reflect their incredible intelligence.
** Or Normal/Water, to get STAB on [[MakeMeWannaShout sound moves]], which are Normal-type for the most part.
** Kyogre is an orca (which are the largest dolphins), and Lanturn is arguably a cross between an anglerfish and a porpoise or Risso's dolphin (which like the deep seas), but a bottlenose dolphin Pokemon would be nice.
*** Then it would be Water/Dark, because Bottlenose Dolphins are pretty mean, but can be okay, if they don't try to rape you.
* A cockroach (hopefully Bug/Dark)
* An earthworm (Bug/Ground)
* An electric eel starter (Water/Electric)
** Eelektross says hi.
*** Eelektross is a lamprey. Note the mouth shape, as well as fins.
* Something from the Teiidae (Whiptail Lizard) family. It would have a literal whip (or flail) for a tail and would be an all female species. It would have unique breeding mechanics of mating only with female Pokemon (the other Pokemon is always the "father", passing down egg moves and [=TMs=]).
** Perhaps they would be able to be left in the daycare alone and then breed by themselves.
* A tardigrade (aka water bear), which will be Bug/Steel with Flash Fire, a typing and ability with no weaknesses. By far, they are one of if not ''the most'' resilient animals on Earth. Between surviving temperatures near absolute 0, oven level heat, extreme pressure in the deep sea, 1,000 times the radiation of other animals, and ''the vacuum of space'', these NighInvulnerable bastards deserve no less than having no elemental weaknesses when they finally get a Pokemon equivalent.
** I read that eventually the vacuum killed them within a few minutes, so perhaps an Ability that weakens Fire (Heat), Ice (Absolute Zero), Water (Deep sea), and Electric attacks (Radiation), but makes Ghost-type attacks (Vacuum of space) Super-Effective.
*** True, but this is Pokemon, so they could be more resilient than their real life counterparts. To balance this, they'd be very slow.
**** Or just have very low stat totals.
***** Eelektross and Spiritomb manage to have decent stats and lack weaknesses. The water bear could be something that doesn't evolve and has great physical, but low special (think Durant).
* A dromaeosaurid that starts out slow, ponderous, and featherless, evolves into something faster and smarter with a few feathers sticking out here and there, and eventually matures into a LightningBruiser with a full coat of feathers. [[ShoutOut The second two forms]] [[Literaure/RaptorRed would have a red patch on their snouts, larger in the females]].
** In fact, we could have a lot of fun with Pokemon based on prehistoric animals that start out as the oldschool, outdated visions of the beasts, and mature into the most up-to-date reconstructions allowable in a childrens' mons game.
* One of those prehistoric giant bird Pokemon. It could be Rock/Fighting.
* The secretary bird ([[http://www.cracked.com/article_19243_6-terrifying-predators-routinely-owned-by-adorable-prey_p2.html #2 in this article]]). This bird is so CrazyAwesome, it's amazing it hadn't been made into a Pokémon yet. It could probably be an avian {{Expy}} of Zangoose, complete with Immunity as its ability and a serpentine rival Pokémon. It'll either be Normal/Flying or Fighting/Flying and have various kicking and stomping attacks to choose from [[note]]Double Kick, Jump Kick, High Jump Kick, Low Sweep, Low Kick, Double Kick, and Stomp[[/note]], along with the staple Flying attacks[[note]]Wing Attack, Aerial Ace, and Bounce come to mind, maybe Acrobatics too; also, you can teach it Fly via HM[[/note]]. It should also be a part of the Field and Flying egg groups. That way, if you get a female, you can have her mate with a Blaziken, resulting in a secretary bird Pokemon that knows Blaze Kick.
* A poison porcupine
* To counterbalance the secretary bird, a black mamba Pokémon.
** Give it a Poison/Steel typing. It'd then be made very weak to the Secretary bird.
*** Don't you mean Dark/Steel?
* A narwhal, or a beluga. It would be water/ice.
* A legitimate Water Type shark, like a Great White or Hammerhead.

* To complete that Secretary Bird/Black Mamba duo, perhaps an animal that can be killed by the Black Mamba, but can kill the Secretary Bird. Because of natural order.

* A Ground-type Peafowl Pokemon that evolves differently depending on the gender. If it's a male, it would evolve into a Fire/Steel Peacock, with the ability Levitate. If it's a female, it would eveolve into a Grass/Ghost Peahen with the ability Sap Sucker. I have some drawings of them based on the near-extinct Green Peafowl. I made the male Fire/Steel because the males shimmer like polished bronze or a heat mirage. The female is Grass/Ghost because the females are a dark, glittery black, and tend to stay around the ground and forage for food. So yeah, I put a lot of thought into this.

* Same troper as the above two, and I had an idea for sidewinder that is Ghost/Ground, a Fer de Lance (Ultimate Pit Viper) that is Poison/Ground (Look up the Fer de Lance. This snake is extremely deadly.), and an Australian King Brown Snake with the Poison/Dragon typing and the ability Wonder Guard. Why is that King Brown so goddamned strong? Because its venom turns human blood to jelly and makes you bleed that jelly through EVERY. SINGLE. HOLE. That and it's from Australia. At that point, it's painfully obvious that nothing short of an Ice Age will kill it.

* See both Australia and New Zealand. Examples include the platypus, echidna, and kiwi.
** Problem: We already have a platypus (Psyduck. Note the claws, fur, and lack of wings), an echidna (Cyndaquil, surprising as it may seem, is indeed a long beaked echidna), and a family of kiwis (Doduo and Dodrio. Note the wings being so stubby they can't be seen, the fuzzy brown bodies, and the long beaks). Of course, this doesn't mean we can't have more Pokémon based on these.
*** I can think of types: the Platypus will be Fighting/Poison (its spurs are used for battle), the echidna will be Normal/Poison (it's from [[DeathWorld Australia]] and has spines), and the kiwi is Grass/Ground.

* A termite Pokemon, with multiple evolutionary lines. You start out with a Bug-type larva. When it normally evolves, it becomes a generic Bug/Grass worker termite with a bunch of Rock-based moves to get rid of Fire type enemies. With a Dawn Stone, you either get a male Bug/Fighting soldier or a female Bug/Psychic queen. The former is a FragileSpeedster and the later is a MightyGlacier who controls the colony with their psychic powers.

* A sabre-toothed tiger Pokemon, possibly with Ice or Rock type (probably the latter if it is a fossil). Yes, we have Raikou already, but Raikou had a looser resemblance. We already have a woolly mammoth, after all.

* A duo of a honey badger (also called a ratel) and a honeyguide bird, possibly introduced alongside another bee Pokemon (preferably Bug/Flying like Vespiquen). The honey badger could be at least part Rock type so it'd be very strong against the bee Pokemon. The honeyguide bird could be Flying and another type that's strong against Bug/Flying types, for example Fire or Electric. The two could have abilities that boost their stats when they're used in battle together, similar to Plus and Minus, or maybe the honey badger could be Rock/Electric and the honeyguide could be Electric/Flying, and they could have Plus and Minus as their abilities.

* Another kind of octopus, that evolves into a mindflayer, then into Cthulhu himself.
** It would make a perfect Water starter. Its signature move will be Madness, a Psychic move with a greater chance of confusion than any other.
*** We have something similar to mindflayers in Malamar.

* A [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snakehead_(fish) snakehead]]. As a pun on the Japanese name of the species[[note]]Raigyo, literally "thunder fish"[[/note]], it would be at least part Electric-type.

* Frilled shark. It already looks like a Pokemon.

* River dolphin. The Amazon river dolphin is the most well-known, but the South Asian river dolphin has a more monster-y look to it.

[[WMG: ...various plants.]]
* More Grass-types based off [[FantasticFruitsAndVegetables edible fruits and vegetables]], because Oddish, Exeggecute, Sunkern, Seedot, Ludicolo, Tropius and Cherubi aren't enough when compared to the other Grass-types out there.
** Chilli: Grass/Fire
** Potato: Grass/Ground
** Pumpkin: Grass/Ghost [[spoiler:Confirmed by Pumpkaboo and Gourgeist.]]
** Orange/Tangerine/Lemon/Lime/other citrus fruit: Grass/Electric (citrus batteries, anyone?)
** Garlic: Not too sure about the typing, but will have Stench as one of its abilities
** Jumping beans! A Grass/Fighting jumping bean, to be precise.

[[WMG: ... superheroes!]]
Predominantly American, but a few Japanese as well. All of them are Fighting types except for one or two.
* Fighting/Steel for the [[Franchise/{{Superman}} Man of Steel]] and [[Comicbook/{{Wolverine}} Logan]]
* Fighting/Dark for the [[Franchise/{{Batman}} Caped Crusader]], [[Comicbook/{{Deadpool}} The Merc With A Mouth]], and [[Comicbook/{{Spawn}} The One]]
* Fighting/Psychic for the [[Franchise/WonderWoman Spirit Of Truth]], [[Comicbook/GreenLantern Hal Jordan]], [[Comicbook/MartianManhunter J'on J'onz]], Comicbook/TheSpectre and [[Comicbook/{{Daredevil}} The Guardian Devil]]
* Fighting/Water for [[Comicbook/{{Aquaman}} King Of The Seas]]
* Fighting/Electric for [[ComicBook/{{Shazam}} The Worlds Mightiest Mortal]] and [[Comicbook/TheMightyThor The Son of Odin]]
* Fighting/Flying for ComicBook/{{Hawkman}}
* Fighting/Bug for [[SpiderMan Your Friendly Neighborhood Webslinger]] and [[Franchise/KamenRider The Twin Riders]]
* Fighting Pure for ComicBook/BlackCanary
** Or possibly Fighting/Normal (For STAB Hyper Voice)
* Fighting/Ground for TheHulk (he does use earth-based moves in the ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom'' series)
* Electric/Fire for [[TheFlash Flash]] (with a moveset based on Physical and Speed moves).
* Fighting/Fire [[Franchise/FantasticFour Human Torch]] (with Levitate)
* Fighting/Rock for [[Franchise/FantasticFour Benjamin Grimm]]
* Grass/Fighting for [[ComicBook/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy The King of Planet X]]

* Talonflame is based on [[VideoGame/FZero Captain Falcon]]. It can even do a Falcon Kick!

[[WMG: ...[[Literature/JourneyToTheWest Sha Wujing]].]]
Specifically, a Water/Fighting starter. Many people have complained that the for the past 3 generations, there has always been a Fire/Fighting type starter. While Blaziken can't be argued for, Infernape and Emboar can. Both seem to possess some very deep similarities to one another; both are Fire/Fighting type, both are bipedal, and both are said to have their designs inspired by Chinese motifs (they both even have that odd golden swirl). Why is this? Infernape and Emboar are based on Sun Wukong and Zhu Baije, respectively, 2 supernatural warriors that starred in ''Literature/JourneyToTheWest''. These two were accompanied by a third demon, a creature by the name of Sha Wujing, who is occasionally known as "the water buffalo". Thus, it would follow logically that this creature shall appear as one of the next Generation's starters, be it as a water buffalo or some other creature.
* As a corollary, Yulong will be completely ignored.
** He is the least regarded of the cast. But regardless - you can't make a Dragon-type a starter, and as a Dragon in the shape of a horse, a Yulong Pokemon would logically be Normal/Dragon anyways.
* Alternately, it would be a Water/Dark Monk Seal that evolved into an [[MixAndMatchCreatures Ogre Seal]].
* In Japan, Sha Wujing is popularly portrayed as a kappa, so while I do think we'll get a Water/Fighting starter based on him, it might look more like a turtle or monkey than a buffalo. But yeah, it's definitely on the way in some form next gen.

[[WMG: ...the Oracle Of Delphi.]]
* Delphox is named after Delphi + Fox, and it is a Fire/Psychic type.

[[WMG: ...weapons of war.]]
* A [[TankGoodness Tank]] Pokemon: Pure Steel
* A [[KillItWithFire Flamethrower]] Tank Pokemon: Steel/Fire
* An amphibious Tank Pokemon: Steel/Water
* A Fighter Plane Pokemon: Steel/Flying (A FragileSpeedster kind)
* A Bomber Plane Pokemon: Steel/Flying (Either a GlassCannon or a MightyGlacier kind)
** A Stealth Bomber Plane Pokemon: Steel/Ghost (Levitate as an ability. A fast annoyer.)
* A Battleship Pokemon: Steel/Water
* An [[NukeEm Atomic Bomb]] Pokémon: Steel/Poison (more people in the Hiroshima and Nagasaki died of the radiation poisoning than the direct explosion)
* An [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w1EqF5kWz6Q automated]] HumongousMecha: Steel/Fighting.

[[WMG: ...military troops.]]
The first form is based off the lowest ranking in the military, the first evolution will be based on a higher rank, and the final evolution will be based on an even higher rank.

[[WMG: ...British royal guards.]]
A pseudo-legendary that excels in both defense stats.

[[WMG: ...the Queen of England.]]
Legendary Pokémon just to go along with the previous WMG.

[[WMG: ...various electronics]]
All will be either Electric or Steel type.

[[WMG: ...software or coding]]
A porygon evolutionary family expy perhaps?

[[WMG: ...The Olympians.]]
* An Electric/Fighting Zeus (because he's a badass with thunderbolts). He has Levitate (lives in the Heavens) and some dark moves (he's a Jerkass.) Also [[AnythingThatMoves Attract.]]
** Signature Move List for a Zeus Pokemon: Transform, Attract, Pound, Thunder.
* An Electric/Dark Hera (she's the wife of Zeus, and a BitchInSheepsClothing. It also fits with her being unable to directly affect Zeus.)
* A Ghost/Steel Hades (Hades is said to rule over precious metals)
* A Ghost/Ice Persephone (the wife of Hades, and when with him winter occurs) with Grass moves (she's needed for spring)
* A Water/Ground Poseidon (god of the sea, also god of earthquakes)
* A Fire/Steel Hepheastus (he's the blacksmith of the gods)
* A Psychic/Fire Aphrodite (her manipulation of sexuality as Psychic, and intense "firey" lust) with the Attract move (for obvious reasons)
* A Fire/Normal Hestia (goddess of the hearth, and a FlatCharacter)
* An Electric/Fire Apollo (carries the sun, which is hot and made of plasma) with Levitate (like I said, he carries the sun)
* A Grass/Fighting Demeter (a hunter)
** Artemis would make more sense as a hunter. Demeter would probably make more sense as Grass/Ice (causes both Spring and Winter). Alternatively, she changes types with the seasons (Grass/Water for Spring, Grass/Fire for Summer, Grass/Flying for Autumn, and Grass/Ice for Winter.)
* A Psychic/Grass Dionysus (Grass for the plants harvested as alcohol, and Psychic for his popularity)
** Psychic also makes sense due to the Orgia.
* A Psychic/Fighting Athena (Associated primarily with knowledge, but also with strength and just warfare. Also associated with law and justice, so would have to have Justified as her ability.)
* And for the lesser-known ones:
** Helios, [[SadlyMythtaken who was often conflated with Apollo]] (it was actually Helios that drove the chariot of the sun), would also have the Electric/Fire typing.
** Eos, the dawn goddess, would be Fire/Flying (generally depicted with wings and was mother to the four Winds).
** Selene, the moon goddess, would be Fairy/Fire or Fairy/Flying (among other things, the Fairy type seems to be associated with the moon, with Moonlight having been retconned to a Fairy-type move and one of the new moves introduced in the type being called Moonblast. Selene is sibling to Helios and Eos and likewise has one of those chariots so the Fire-type is to tie in with them)
** Pan, of course, is Grass/Fairy.
** Hecate would be Dark/Fairy (associated with the moon, magic, witchcraft, and sorcery). Could also be Psychic/Fairy.
** Eros would be Fire/Psychic (Fire for the same reasons as Aphrodite; Psychic partially for similar reasons and partly for the tie-in with [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eros#Eros_and_Psyche Psyche]].)
** Heracles would be Dark/Fighting (often used his wits as much as his muscles in completing his Labors and was said to be quite vengeful to those who crossed him.)

[[WMG: ... ''Film/KingKong''.]]
* It'll be a Pseudo-Legendary Electric/Fighting type to compliment Tyranitar and Hydreigon. Why is it an Electric-type? Because in ''Film/KingKongVsGodzilla'', the Eighth Wonder of the World had some Electric abilities. And the reason it's a Fighting-type? [[spoiler:WordOfGod from Toho confirms Kong beat Godzilla, and this Pokémon would be doubly strong against Tyranitar.]]

[[WMG: Antique objects such as...]]
* A nutcracker!

[[WMG: ... Prehistoric mammals.]]
Out of all the fossil Pokemon so far, none have been mammals. For variety's sake, they're probably going to change that sooner or later.
* Saber-tooth cat would be a popular choice
* Megaloceros (massive prehistoric deer)
* Megatherium (massive prehistoric sloth, the size of an elephant!)
* Woolly mammoth
** Problem is, [[http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/File:473.png a non-fossil case has been done]].
* Cave lion.

[[WMG: [[Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica Kyubey.]] ]]

[[WMG: [[Anime/RaveMaster Plue.]] ]]
* It would be Bug-type/Rock-type, because Plue is a bug who can find the Rave ""stones"". Also, as a rock-type, Plue would have a weakness to water, since he cannot swim. And, as a bug-type, Plue would be super-effective against Dark-types (for he can break Dark Brings). It could be found by fishing and has an ability that lets it point toward some special items.

[[WMG: The rest of the chess pieces.]]
* Rooks as a StoneWall, Knights as LightningBruiser, Kings (males only) as GlassCannon, Queens (female only) as FragileSpeedster. Also, a method that makes them evolve into Psychic/Steel "white" versions (with an ability that lets them hit Darks with Psychic moves and Dark hit them for normal damage).

[[WMG: [[Franchise/{{Metroid}} Ridley.]] Specifically, the pseudolegendary of that generation.]]
He fits the pattern!
* looks like a dragon
* three-stage evolution
* Flying type grants an immunity
* stats are second only to the final boss

[[WMG: More dinosaur and prehistoric reptile fossils]]
While we already do have several, a lot of the most famous and popular dinosaurs remain absent from Pokemon in fossil form.
* Diplodocus. Rock/Steel, with a powerful ironclad tail it uses to smash its opponents. It's sort of surprising we got a fossil based on the more obscure Amargasaurus before the more famous Diplodocus.
** Amaura and Aurorus said "hi".
*** They're both based on Amargasaurus rather than Diplodocus. Did you entirely miss the second sentence? "It's sort of surprising we got a fossil based on the more obscure Amargasaurus before the more famous Diplodocus."
* Stegosaurus. As mentioned above, likely with solar panels for plates, seeing as its plates likely functioned similarly. Rock/Fire, Rock/Grass, or Rock/Electric (a la Helioptile) all could work.
* Some kind of dromaeosaurid. Rock/Electric (for the speed) or Rock/Dark (for the viciousness and the cunning) both could work, as mentioned above.
* A Parasaurolophus that can play complex melodies using the protrusion on its head. Perhaps the crest even could resemble a brass instrument. Rock or Rock/Water would work, but if a Sound type were introduced then Rock/Sound would be better.
* A Dilophosaurus with elaborate crests. Rock/Poison in reference to [[JurassicPark]] in spite of the fact that they were not actually poisonous.
* A Maiasaura as a sort of ancient Kangaskhan expy, revolving around its care for its young. Pure Rock or Rock/Psychic, or maybe an interesting Rock/Normal to reference Kangaskhan further.
* An Ankylosaur. While Torterra already bears some resemblance to one, it isn't a fossil. It could be Rock/Steel type with armor resembling a military tank and either a wrecking ball or a medieval mace for its tail.
* Spinosaurus. There are so many possibilities for the types of this one. It could be Rock/Water with a sail like a shark fin in reference to its speculated diet of fish and frequenting of the shores of bodies of water. It could be Rock/Fire with Solar Power in reference to its sail being speculated to have worked as a sort of solar panel. It could be a monstrous Rock/Dragon type. Any of these could also bear some resemblance to the Egyptian crocodile god Sobek, due to Spinosaurus's crocodile-like skull.
* A mosasaur of some sort, part water-type, of course.
* Some kind of pterosaur.

[[WMG: Plant fossils]]
No, I don't mean like Lileep. Lileep may be a Grass type, but it's based on an animal rather than a plant. I mean fossil Pokemon based on actual ancient plants. For example:
* A cycad.
* A Lepidodendrale.
* A primitive flowering plant.
* The ancestor of all modern plants.

[[WMG: Non-reptile fossils.]]
Basically, any ancient life-form that isn't reptilian, and hasn't been done already
* A sea scorpion
* A Dunkleosteus-Rock/Steel
* One of those flightless giant birds of prey-Rock/Fighting

[[WMG: Inanimate fossils.]]
Who's to say modern day is the only time period with Pokemon based on inanimate objects?
* A stromatolite, Rock/Water.
* A fulgurite, Rock/Electric.
* An asteroid, Rock/Fire. Came to Earth in a huge swarm, wiping out much of its life 65 million years ago.
* An Ice Age glacier, Rock/Ice.

[[WMG: Kaijuu.]]
Similar to Tyranitar largely drawing inspiration from Godzilla, there could be other Pokemon based on other Kaijuu! Due to the fact that many Kaijuu seem to serve almost as a part of the earth, many would likely be Rock type. For example:
* Rodan (Rock/Flying, Rock/Dragon, or Rock/Fire with Levitate)
* Battra (Bug/Dark)
* Gamera (Rock/Water)
* Daimajin (Rock/Fighting or Rock/Dark)
* Varan (Rock/Flying)
* Pulgasari, though Aggron may already be this (Steel or Steel/Dark to reference the dark backstory of the movie)

[[WMG: TheFourGods]]
We already have Genbu with Tirtouga and Caracossta,
* Byakko would be a Sabere-tooth tiger like in the above WMG, only Rock/Steel and coated in iron-plating (think a feline Agrron)
* Suzaku would be a Flying/Fire pokemon (replace with Rock if a fossil and add lvitate for similar effect) based on a fusion of a pterosaur and a Sparrow
* Seiryu would be a Dragon pokemon natch.
* Alternately we would have a quartet of Legendaries based on these monsters. A Dragon-type, Fire/Flying type, Electric/Steel-type and Water-type. On pair would be exclusive to one game (based on their axis the Byakko and Seiryu analouge are the mascots to one game, the Genbu and Suzaku analog become the other's mascots), with a 5th yellow Dragon-type as their leader.


[[folder: Other future Pokémon concept ideas]]

If you have a concept for a specific type combo, put it in one of the above folders for types. If you have a concept for a Pokemon based on a specific animal/plant/mineral/[[BuffySpeak thingy]], put it in the "There will be Pokemon based on..." folder above.

[[WMG: In Gen VI, the Pokemon with the National Dex number of #666 will be an evil, demonic dark type Pokemon]]
* Might be tricky. Because the Starters would bring it up to 658, meaning after that there have to be the [[ComMons Generic Bird, Bug and tiny animal Pokemon]], so unless one of those would be evil and demonic, 666 will probably just be a Com Mon (Though it may reach MemeticMutation status because of its number).
** Think about what you just said. A bird Pokémon available at the very beginning of the game that looks dark and scary and eventually turns into a GIANT DEMONIC CROW. And you get to RIDE IT.
*** Better idea: a region based off the British Isles could have ravens (Tower of London). So... a crow that evolves into a raven? A raven that is said to be the staunch protector of its homeland, much as the Tower ravens are said to protect England from falling?
** Actually, number 666 will be the evolved form of Pinsir. Prehaps it would be a Dark/Flying type?
** Maybe a second ev stage for Houndour? It becomes bipedal and gets a pitchfork? Maybe it'll get enough stats to be on par with the pseudo-legendary suite (total base stats = 600)?
** Do keep in mind that, with the exception of Spiritomb, the developers haven't done anything special with the OneHundredAndEight entry either, despite that holding more cultural significance to them than the NumberOfTheBeast. And this is when they've had the opportunity to do something special for it ''four times'' now, since there's a #108 entry in every regional dex, but they've only taken up the opportunity once. So, combined with the aforementioned fact that #666 would have to be a {{Com Mon|s}}, I highly, highly doubt it'll be anything special. It'll probably just be the third evolution of the Pidgey {{Expy}}.
** Well, the [[ComMons early-game com mons]] always represent a small mammal of sorts, and a small imp or demon could certainly qualify. I was thinking Ifrimp - Coronimp or something along the lines of those names, and it would start out as a normal-type and evolve into a normal-fire type, or possibly a normal-dark type (similar to how Bidoof evolved into a normal-water type.) Of course, being a com mon, [[AwesomeButImpractical it wouldn't be very powerful]].
** It wouldn't hurt to have another early-game Dark type, like Poochyena and Purrloin. If 666 was a Dark type it would fall in here.
** They could also do a Bug-type maggot as #664 (Maggross?) similar to a DarkerAndEdgier Caterpie, which evolves into a cocoon for #665 (Pupatrid?) and then into a giant, demonic Bug/Dark-type fly for #666 (Beelzebuzz?).
** It will be known as the Beast Pokémon!
** Jossed. It was Vivillon.
*** Which, from a meta standpoint, was quite evil indeed. [[LastLousyPoint Eighteen variants each region-locked to certain parts of the world]], allowing those who come from the rarer parts of the world (or who had enough advance knowledge to lie about their location before starting their game) to ask for a king's ransom on the GTS.

[[WMG: In the Generation VI, there will be a DistaffCounterpart of Bouffalant.]]
And she will be based on a SassyBlackWoman.
* ...Except that Bouffalant comes in both genders already.
** So did Gardevoir, but nobody told Gallade that.

[[WMG: Possible starters.]]
* A Grass/Electric monkey who uses its tail to shock fish, a Fire/Poison frog, and a Water/Psychic dolphin. In dex number order, I call them Implonkey (impulse+monkey), Statichim (static+chimp), Electrape (electric+ape), Flammog (flame+frog), Magmoad (magma+toad), Burncroak (burn+croak), Hyphin, Dolphic, and Delphini.
* A Fire/Dragon (Charizard expy), Water/Dragon (Gyarados expy), and Grass/Dragon Trio
* A Grass/Fighting polefighting lemur line (Bushby, Treemur, and Tribole), a Fire/Dark volcanic TyrannosaurusRex Charizard expy line (Tyrannaw, Tyrantorch, and [[AwesomeMcCoolName Rexuvius]]), and a Water/Psychic Aztec dolphin line (Porphin, Delphet, and Aztecean)
** Alternately, we'd get a Grass-type kappa/cactus that evolves into a Grass/Fighting {{Expy}} of [[Literature/JourneyToTheWest Sha Wujing]] to compliment Infernape and Emboar, and a Water-type wolf cub that evolves into a Water/Ice [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Akhlut Akhlut]] - basically, a wolf with some orca whale-like elements.
* A fire/dark spotted hyena (has mostly balanced stats, but with physical a bit higher than special. Learns Bite and Fire Fang early on. Can also learn ground-type moves via TM as a TakeThat to Luxray), a water/poison platypus (Strong defenses, mediocre attacks and speed, but can poison enemies), and a grass/fighting [[PantheraAwesome jaguar]] (GlassCannon/FragileSpeedster).
* A massive sea serpent that may evolve into water/dragon or water/flying.
* An eel that evolves into water/electric.
* A water-type whale or dolphin. Maybe a big, badass orca.
* A Grass-type canine, a Water-type feline and some Fire-type rodent (a reversal of the stereotypical food chain associated with these pets).
* A Grass Type unicorn that would gain Psychic or Fairy eventually if evolved. It should be a stallion if male, and mare if female. A special attacker with some medic capacities. (I.E, Aromatherapy, Heal Bell, etc.)
* A Fire Type Tiger that could become Fire/Dark. A swift physical attacker.
* A Water Type hermit crab that would gain Water/Rock. A Mighty Glacier with a notable physical Defense.

[[WMG: Instead of the standard Fire/Water/Grass starters, we will get a Fighting/Rock/Flying trio.]]
This, of course, will lead to cries of ruined forever.
* Or a Psychic/Dark/Fighting trio.
** But Dark is outright immune to Psychic, which ruins the balance. People always seem to not pay attention to that.
*** People pay TOO MUCH attention to that. It is not like you'd use Vine Whip on Charizard, and the immunity is pretty much the same as a NVE. [[TemptingFate It is not like a starter would have a limited movepool...]]
*** > [[http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Snivy#Learnset FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU]]
** Gamefreak has acknowledged the three as forming a triangle in Black/White. In the city with the eighth Gym badge, the female Ace Trainer in the battle house uses a team of such (while the male uses a Grass/Fire/Water core).
** Psychic/Dark/Fighting could be possible if the Psychic type's ability let it hit Dark for NVE damage instead of an immunity. Of course, the Dark type would still be immune to other Psychic-type's STAB.
** Anyway, Fire/Rock/Steel and Grass/Poison/Ground also work. The problem with those combos is that Steel has too many resistances and that Poison is super-effective on ONLY Grass. Fire/Rock/Steel is additionally unbalanced by the latter two resisting Normal, meaning that only the Steel type can make up for the disadvantage with Normal attacks.

** Full list of type triangles:
*** Fire/Water/Grass, Fire/Rock/Steel, Grass/Poison/Ground, Fighting/Flying/Rock (traditional 2x/0.5x)
*** Grass/Ice/Rock (2x/1x, avoiding the "Rock resists Normal" problem)
*** Water/Dragon/Steel, Electric/Grass/Steel, Electric/Dragon/Steel (1x/0.5x)

** Possible type squares:
*** Fire/Water/Grass/Bug, Fire/Rock/Ground/Grass, Grass/Flying/Rock/Ground (2x/0.5x)
*** Electric/Grass/Dragon/Steel (1x/0.5x)
** Finally, type pentagons:
*** Fire/Rock/Ground/Grass/Bug, Grass/Bug/Flying/Rock/Ground (2x/0.5x

[[WMG:There will be another Fire/Fighting starter, but it will be counterbalanced.]]
The fourth Fire/Fighting starter will be counterbalanced with a Grass/Psychic with a possibly-hidden ability that's the Psychic equivalent of Scrappy, letting it hit the Water/Dark starter with Psychic attacks for neutral or maybe not very effective damage. This distribution of secondary types would neatly mirror the primaries. This would also work with any of the other type triangles mentioned above - to keep with tradition, make 'em the secondary types of the traditional Fire/Grass/Water starter trio.

[[WMG: There will be a Pokemon named after the Sprint phone company]]
This is based on the fact that there is a pokemon named Virizion (Verzion) and that Kabuto's name was originally Att (AT&T).

[[WMG: There will be two or more Pokémon that evolve into the same Pokémon]]
Each of the unevolved forms would learn moves that the other one(s) couldn't, leaving the evolved form with multiple, separate movepools. Only the evolved form would be breedable - the unevolved forms would be baby Pokémon, each requiring a different incense to produce (with the lack of incense producing the evolved form, as always).

[[WMG: Possible future legendary mascot trios]]
* A trio of ancient SuperRobot mecha-golems based on Myth/NorseMythology: a special-attacking GlassCannon Ice/Dark Loki with Illusion, a physical-attacking MightyGlacier Electric/Fighting Thor, and a mixed-attacking Steel/Psychic trio master Odin. As robots, all 3 would learn Steel-type moves by level-up. Possible names: Lokaeis (from "Loki" and a corruption of "ice"), Thorebrak (from "Thor" and ''"Torebrak"'', Norwegian for "thunder")[[note]]"Elekthor" would work if it wasn't already the French name for Zapdos[[/note]], and Siderodin (from "Odin" and the steel-related prefix ''sidero-"). If the games are a direct sequel to Black/White, then Lokaeis could be the white-colored mascot of Onyx Version and Thorebrak the black-colored mascot of Opal Version. That way, they'd be direct expies of Reshiram and Zekrom (strengthening the "sequel" connection) without being ripoffs.
* A trio based on the console war (Wii, PS3, and XBox360), or on political alignment (Left, Right, and Centre), or religions (Christian, Buddhism, Islam).
** These would probably be done as indirect analogies. For example, if they had a trio based on the console war, instead of having giant robots or something that look like giant PS3's and 360's, they'd just have one red-and-black member that's AwesomeButImpractical (referencing the PS3 and its high pricepoint), one bright green/white/gray member that's pretty much your average legendary with at least one 4x weakness (referencing the 360 and its tendency to break down), and a blue-and-white trio master that's smaller and weaker than the other two, but has the most potential (referencing the Wii and [[AuthorAppeal the fact that it's made by Nintendo]]). Of course, this would most likely be a subtle ShoutOut to the console war rather than the main theme of the trio (which would be based on mythology or fictional characters or something).
** I thought political alignment was already done in Black and White (Reshiram and Zekrom are left/right wings, Kyurem is balanced.)
** The 360 one could be Bug/Steel, with a 4x weakness to Fire. And isn't it strange that the colors match up? (''Red'' ring of Death, Green and White for the regular colors of the X-Box 360)
* Pokemon based off nature. These include a Grim Reaper Pokemon (Ghost/Steel), a Mother Nature Pokemon (Grass/Dragon), and a balance Pokemon (Fire/Ice). The reason why the Grim Reaper has an advantage is because death is inevitable.
* If there's ever a Pokemon game to take place in a region based off of Florence, Italy. It's gotta have a legendary trio based off of the three main contenders of the High Renaissance.
** Leonardo da Vinci -- A steel/psychic type: steel to represent all the machines he's designed, psychic to represent Da Vinci being a man of science for his time. He'll probably look like a big, metallic owl with wings resembling those of one of Da Vinci's flying machines. Why an owl? Because owls are a symbol of wisdom to the ancient Greeks and Romans, where artists of the Renaissance drew most of their inspiration from.
** Michelangelo -- a rock/ghost type: rock because Michelangelo did a lot with sculpting by carving statues from marble, ghost because Michelangelo is the more religious/spiritual of the trio. He'll most likely be a pokefied {{Expy}} of Michelangelo's David (sans the junk of course). Plus, in a similar vein to Regigigas, he'll just appear as an ordinary statue in some hidden location posed a lot like the statue he's modeled after until you bring the designated artifact to the Pokémon.
** Raphael -- ???/dark: I was originally thinking ground as the primary typing since A) no Pokémon typing to my knowledge is really appropriate for representing paint, which was kind of Raphael's thing, and B) I figured it would look consistent with the other two having a mineral-based type in their typing. However, that struck me as maybe too cheap. Does anyone else think it'll work? Anyway, the dark typing is to represent Raphael's more devious nature. While Da Vinci was studying human anatomy and mechanics and Michelangelo was praying, Raphael was out partying. I don't know what the pokemon would look like though.
*** Poison can represent paint - you wouldn't want to ingest it!
*** This wouldn't work without [[TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles Donatello]], you know.
* Larry, Curly, and Moe.
* A trio of matter (Rock/Steel), mind (Psychic/Ghost), and life force (two of Water/Grass/Bug).
* A trio representing the spiritual/supernatural aspects. Psychic, ghost, and fairy.
* A trio representing the concept of Storytelling and/or History. Personally, I feel like these would make an appearance in a region based of Britain, as it has a lot of historical and storytelling value. Anyway, the first Pokemon would be based of history itself and be known as the "Chronology Pokemon" Possible typings could include Rock or Ghost, or both as a dual typing, as Rock type is often used in the Fossil Pokemon to reflect how old they are. Ground type could also work here I guess. The Ghost type would also make sense, as it could show they have possibly "lived" through history as a spectral observer. The second part of the trio would be known as the "Lore Pokemon" and would be based on fiction and stories. Fairy would be a good type for it to represent how stories are imaginary and/or "Fairytales". The final/third part of the trio would represent secrets, parts of history/fiction that we do not understand and conspiracies. Likewise, it would be known as the "Conspiracy" Pokemon and would most likely be dark typed. All three Pokemon would have a somewhat similar appearance, all looking very knowledgeable and Sage-like, possible holding tomes and quills somewhere on their bodies to reflect how they document these events. The Conspiracy Pokemon would have a less similar to the design compared to the other two. The Conspiracy Pokemon would have its tomes carefully hidden, reflecting how it does not wish for its knowledge to be shared.
* A trio based on natural disasters - landslides, avalanches, and eruptions. Ground/Rock, Ground/Ice, and Ground/Fire, respectively. All three would be {{Glass Cannon|s}}, since such events are over as quickly as they begin.
* Personifications of morality. A [[LightIsGood Psychic]] / [[KnightTemplar Fighting]] personification of good, a [[LightIsNotGood Psychic]] / [[DarkIsEvil Dark]] personification of evil, and a Psychic/Steel personification of moral neutrality.
* A trio based on [[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda Link, Zelda, and Ganondorf]] - The one based on Link would be some combination of Fighting (honorable warrior), Steel (metal blade), and Grass (In Zelda, courage is typically associated with forests), and it would be a JackOfAllStats. The one based on Zelda would be some combination of Fairy (magic powers), Psychic (wisdom), and Water (in Zelda, wisdom is typically associated with water), and its highest stat would be Special Attack. The one based on Ganondorf would be Dark/Fire (in Zelda, power is typically associated with fire), and its highest stat would be Attack.
* A trio based on Fate, Luck and Caos, to complement Kalos Trio (Live, Death, Order).

[[WMG: Not Trio, but Quartet]]
* Well, the Four Symbols of Chinese Constellations. Azure Dragon (Dragon/Grass), Vermillion Bird (Fire/Flying), White Tiger (Steel/Normal), Black Tortoise (Water/Poison (the snake)). Seems quite appropriate, especially if the VI gen wants to improve the seasons' mechanics.
** Considering that we've got Moltres and Ho-oh already, Lugia could fit as the Azure Dragon (he ''is'' a blue dragon-like creature, despite the fact that he's associated with water rather than wood). The latter two (the White Tiger and Black Tortoise) could be a new legendary mascot duo and form a quartet with Ho-oh and Lugia ([[CaptainObvious and would probably end up being Expies of Reshiram and Zekrom due to their color schemes]]).
*** Ho-oh is based on the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fenghuang Fenghuang]] and Lugia is based on [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ry%C5%ABjin Ryujin]], so I don't really think Ho-oh and Lugia can represent Vermillion Bird and Azure Dragon (though a Fire/Flying legendary does seem a little bit derivative now, however, a Dragon/Grass would be quite cool indeed - chances are, GF might reinterpret Qing in Qing Long as Green rather than Azure). And we finally get a Poison-type legendary (Black Tortoise would be something like a uber-Tentacruel with much better Defense stats).
* The four horsemen. Conquest (Fighting), War (Dark), Famine (''Poison''), and Death (Ghost).

[[WMG: We will get a Fighting-type that is AlwaysFemale.]]
She'll be more Special based than the Male Physical attackers, getting moves like Aura Sphere and suchlike.
* Alternatively, a KickChick.
** [[http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/File:648Meloetta-Pirouette.png Already been done]], though genderless.

[[WMG:There will be a legendary Pokemon that has ThePowerOfRock]]
It will probably be an Electric/Steel type. Its battle theme will have electric guitars. It will also be the focus of a movie.
* It may also have synergy with Meloetta or conversely, a weakness to her types

[[WMG: There'll be a single gender pokemon that evolves into the opposite gender (probably a fish of some sort).]]
Some real world animals [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hermaphrodite#Sequential_hermaphrodites do something like this]], and it would be interesting.
* [[http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/File:298Azurill.png Already been]] [[http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/File:183Marill.png done]] as well, 75% female/25 male to 50/50 male/female, and it is a water type, too, though not single gendered.

[[WMG: There will be legendaries based off the CthulhuMythos.]]
Here are some examples:
* A [[ManipulativeBastard Psychic/Dark]] Nyarlathotep. Call it Crawlatep (''Craw''ling Chaos+a+Nyarlatho''tep'')
* A ??? (as in, NONE) type Azathoth, which in many ways will be an AscendedGlitch (the enviroment will glitch a bit when it's in battle, and a lot when it scores a critical hit). Call it Nuclaos (''Nucl''ear+Ch''aos'')
* A Bug/Dragon Shub-Niggurath. Bugs are usually an example of ExplosiveBreeder, and Dragon fits with its god-hood. Call it Shubliath.
* We don't need a Yog-Sothoth, since Giratina fits that part.
* Great Old Ones can be the trio legendary. You can get a Water/Dragon Cthulhu, an [[LightIsNotGood Electric]]/Dragon and [[ManipulativeBastard Psychic]]/Dragon Y'[[spoiler:gol...no, I'm [[SpeakOfTheDevil not going to summon him.]] ]]
** Generation VI actually ''did'' bring about a CthuluMythos line, though it wasn't legendary.

[[WMG: There will be a pokemon which evolves at level 100.]]
Zweilous evoulved into Hydreigon at level 64, so maybe at some point, they will have a pokemon that evolves at level 100?

[[WMG: In Gen 6, there will be at least three pseudo-legendary pokemon]]
The minimum three will have their primary typing such that it follows the Grass-Water-Fire triangle. The typing of the pseudo-legendaries needs to get more diverse.

[[WMG: There will be fossils found in ice]]
The pokemon revived from this sort of fossil will all be ice-types and not all will be rock-types. Only a minority will be rock as well.
* Examples could include a smilodon(Ice/Fighting).
* Or a wolf that is an ice-type. Researchers will find bits of fur or skin in the ice, they ask the protagonist to revive it and voila, an Ice-Age era wolf that is an Ice-type. Dark is optional.
* A Mamoswine evolutionary expy is possible. Somebody finds tusks, the hero gets it, revives it and get the basic stage.

[[WMG: There will be fossils that are Steel type instead of Rock]]
They will be more heavily armored than other fossils, and will be a Steel/Water [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dunkleosteus Dunkleosteus]] and a Steel/Bug [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Megarachne Megarachne]].

[[WMG: There will be a legendary connected to Yamask.]]
Specifically, it'll be a "pharaoh" and the most powerful of its kin. It'll also be an certain type of event Pokemon, and a "boss." When you enter the event area (you'll need a Yamask/Cofagrigus to enter), it'll be full of ghost types connected to themes of the afterlife and/or humans: [[TheGrimReaper Dusclops]], [[{{Hellfire}} Litwick]], [[{{Golem}} Golurk]], [[CreepyDoll Banette]], and of course, [[WasOnceAMan Cofagrigus.]] Some will be possessed by this legendary, who is trying to go out and take bloody revenge against society [[WhatTheHellHero for capturing the souls of humanity.]] All of his Pokemon will be influenced by/worked with humanity (they'll include Golurk, Rotom, Porygon3, Garbodor, Conkledurr, and Castform.)

The true Pokemon will then be fought. Unlike all others, it ''cannot'' be caught (being a literal ghost, and to avoid further FridgeHorror), however once beaten, it'll be entered in your Pokedex. It'll be called Yamoast (combination of Ghost and Yama, the Hindu lord of the dead) and be about Lv60. It is effectively a bonus fight, and will be Ghost/Normal (the normal part being how close to human it is.) The apperance will be a humanoid Yamask. Expect NightmareFuel ahoy, as you enter the spirit world!

Once beaten, the soul will be released and finally pass on. What will be left is a special item that, if held on by a Yamask when it evolves, it will become a Ghost/Normal Cofagrigus.

[[WMG:There is a Governor of Sand somewhere.]]
VideoGame/PokemonBlack2AndWhite2 gives some credence to setting Kyurem as an ice counterpart to Kyogre and Groundon. This leaves Sandstorm needing a Legendary of its own to complete a Weather ''Quint''et. Probably in the Poke-Equivalent of North Africa. I mean, [[IDyeGrass how else would the Sahara have formed]]?

[[WMG:There will be [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Subfossil Subfossil]] Pokemon in addition to Fossil Pokemon.]]
For the most part, they will be Pokemon that went extinct more recently than Fossil Pokemon. They'll be revived from remains that aren't preserved in rock, like perhaps a mummified carcass, and as a result will not be part Rock type. As mentioned elsewhere on this page, some might be preserved in ice instead, and will be part Ice type. This way, we potentially could get Pokemon based on such animals as dodos, thylacines, Ice Age megafauna, aurochs, and perhaps if the "mummified carcass" part were extended, revived mummy cats and ibises and other animals worshipped in ancient Egypt.
* And players could also revive mummies of extant (still existing) Pokemon, but the revived versions have different abilities and can learn different moves.

[[WMG:A dragon type trio will show up in a future title.]]
This trio, will be comparable to Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres. The "weather trio" of generation five has alternate forms that look like a bird, a dragon and a cat. Bird is generation one obviously and cat is generation two but no generation had a dragon type of that level yet. Now one of this pseudo trio's base stats are higher than the others, which suggests which could be referencing that Dragon types are overpowered in general but the stats and the forms don't match up, so it is more likely to be foreshadowing a new legendary dragon trio that's ''not'' so overpowered.
* Once again, [[http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/File:646Kyurem.png already]] [[http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/File:644Zekrom.png been]] [[http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/File:643Reshiram.png done]].
** And done before that in the form of Dialga, Palkia, and Giratina.

[[WMG:[[TheMissingno Missingno]] will become an AscendedGlitch.]]

[[WMG: A Poison-Type Legendary...]]
What will it be? And when will it debut?
* A cloud of sentient mist created by Cipher for the purposes of mind control.
* It will be part of a GreenAesop storyline, where a mass of toxic waste has mutated into a Pokemon.

[[WMG: A Legendary based on the Jade Emperor]]
And 12 other legendaries based on the Chinese Zodiac


[[folder: Pokémon evolution predictions (Of already existing Pokémon)]]

[[WMG: Skarmory will get a pre-evolution]]
Skarmory is already spectacularly good enough on its own, and it would be instantly banned from Little Cup if it got an evo. Which is why it could get a prevo.
* You could also consider how the Pokemon that was meant to be its counterpart--Mantine--got one already. But then again, the Pinsir and Scyther duo ended up with only one getting a evo... And Jynx didn't get an evolved form when Electabuzz and Magmar did... and Banette didn't get an evo when Dusknoir did, and Weepinbel didn't get an alternate evolution when Gloom did, and Delibird didn't get an evolution when Gligar did, and... eh, the point's probably made by now.
** Heracross seems to have become Pinsir's new counterpart these days.
*** They're based on "Japanese Beetle Brothers", apparently.

[[WMG: Blitzle, Minccino, Audino, Purrloin, Scraggy, Zorua, Pawniard, Bouffalant, Alomomola, Sigilyph, Throh/Sawk, and Druddigon will have baby forms]]
Pawniard/Bisharp counterparts will have Light/Steel and based on knights. Druddigon needs a baby form because it's currently unevolved and Haxorus is fully evolved but Druddigon is heavier than Haxorus. Sigilyph needs a baby form because its base stats are on par with fully-evolved Pokémon, with defenses better than your average speedy Special Attacker.

[[WMG: Heracross and Pinsir will get a convergent evolution.]]

[[WMG: Hitmonchan, Hitmonlee, and Hitmontop will get a convergent evolution...]]
Called "Hitmonchuk", based on ChuckNorris.

[[WMG: Gurdurr will get a hammer wielding alternative evo based on John Herny.]]

[[WMG: Basculin will get an evolution.]]
Unlikely, since its base stats are already equal to a number of fully evolved Pokémon.
* In that case, make its evolution really high (Lv 50), or have a stone evolution (it won't learn any non-TM moves afterwards). Furthermore, the typing would depend on the form: Red Striped Basculin become Water/Fighting, while Blue Striped Basculin become Water/Psychic.

[[WMG: Stunfisk will get an evolution.]]
* Its stats are a bit high already.

[[WMG: Throh and Sawk will get a pre-evo and an alternate evolution for the pre-evo.]]
Someone on Website/DeviantArt came up with an idea: the pre-evo (forgot the name) would have its belt change color as it gets more experienced, and when it becomes a black belt it can either evolve into Throh, Sawk, or the kendo-based Thwak.
* Given the parallels between R/B/Y and B/W, this seems especially likely.
** While it is fine that they're using the gimmick that Hitmonchan and Hitmonlee used to have, I personally don't like the idea of them copying them that much.

[[WMG: Gothorita will get a male only Alternative evolution.]]
Maybe a Psychic/Steel EmoTeen wielding knives?
* It should be called "Killmo" (Kill + Emo).
** Is it just me, or does Killmo sound like a character from a DarkerAndEdgier ''Series/SesameStreet''?
* Or maybe, he'll be based off of Visual Kei.
* They can learn Dark-type moves, and their Gothic style is tied in to the Dark type, so maybe Psychic/Dark?

[[WMG: Emolga will get an evolution.]]
* Or a prevo.

[[WMG: Mawile will get an evolution.]]
A Steel/Dark type or a Steel/Fighting type would be cool.
* With that yawning maw, I bet it'll be a Steel/Dark.
* And to balance, we could get a Sabelye evo
* Pure Steel types are still a bit too rare. I like the idea of Mawile getting an evolution, but it should remain a pure steel type since there's already a Steel/Dark family.
** There are more pure Steel types than Steel/Dark, you know. Plus with the Dark type, it can get STAB.
** Sadly, with its Mega Evolution revealed, Mawile is basically confirmed as incapable of regular evolution.
** Furthermore, Mawile itself didn't retain its pure Steel typing, instead being retconned into the new Fairy-type.

[[WMG: Qwilfish will get an evolution.]]
It should be based off of a lionfish, since they have poisonous quills like Qwilfish has.

[[WMG: Sudowoodo will get an evolution.]]
After all of the years of pretending to be a tree, it finally becomes one! Its evolution barely moves, has moss growing on it, and sometimes bird Pokemon will nest on its arms.

[[WMG: Swoobat and Audino will get evolutions in Gen 6.]]
Considering that Golbat and Chansey got Crobat and Blissey in Gen 2, this is a given.
* Swoobat would most likely have to evolve via stone (Shiny or Dawn stone, perhaps?). And it would be like Crobat but much more special-oriented.
** ...[[WhosLaughingNow Poor Sigilyph...]]
* And Audino's evolution will be a bigger bunny-like creature with great defensive abilities.

[[WMG: Kangaskhan will finally get a pre-evolution]]
Or at least some explanation for the second head in its sprite.
* Maybe it will be called "Joeykhan"?
** Joyroo.
** Kangaskid.
** The pre-evolution could then get a male alternate evolution, named Ghengaroo or Kubaskhan.
** Kubaskhan will be Normal/Fighting, but not as strong as [[MamaBear Kangaskhan.]]
* Alternatively, it will get a male counterpart, that'll be Normal/Fighting.
* Nope, it got a Mega Evolution.

[[WMG: Absol will get an evolution]]
Because such a fan-favorite deserves better stats. Probably something that's still pure Dark-type, maybe called Ution.
* Or, it could be a happiness-based evolution into a Dark/Fighting type. Because Absol is so thrilled to find a Trainer that loves it, and if it gained a Fighting secondary type, it could be seen as the hero it is!
* Absol already has stats comparable to many fully evolved Pokémon. Although Magneton has the same base stat total...
** Same as with Mawile, Absol's Mega Evolution confirms it as incapable of regular evolution.

[[WMG: Cubone and Marowak will get an evolution.]]
It would use full body armor, tools, and weapons using fossils from actual fossil pokémon.
* Alternatively, [[CallBack it's]] [[TearJerker part]] [[FridgeHorror Ghost]].
* Maybe if you evolve it by leveling it next to a certain fossil pokemon, it will have a different form and moveset based off that pokemon.

[[WMG:Unown will get an evolution that is not useless.]]
Maybe call them Unowble, and they will be based off the Greek alphabet.
* How about Nigma? Its moveset depends on the type of Hidden Power it has. Each letter has a different super-powerful move they learn at a high level.
** Alternatively, it could be called Ciphable and its secondary type is determined by its Hidden Power move (if it's Psychic, it'll retain the Psychic typing). This would hint at its connection to [[{{God}} Arceus]], which was already hinted at when it used them to create a new member of the Creation trio. It would take the form of a plate/slab with an Unown eye, and its color would depend on the type (shinies would have a color-inverted eye). Since the Pokedex entry says that a great power occurs when many Unown unite, Unown would evolve by being levelled up with another Unown in the party. Since Unown could be potentially ''any'' Psychic dual type (except Normal), it would give motivation for people to collect as many as they can.

[[WMG:Pawniard will get four alternate evolutions besides Bisharp, carrying ChessMotifs even farther.]]
* King: Male only; powerful, but a shallow movepool.
** Not a King. When a pawn gets to the end of the board in chess, it can only be promoted to a queen, a rook, a bishop, or a knight.
* Queen: Female only; Fast and versatile, but only average HP.
* Rook: MightyGlacier.
* Knight: FragileSpeedster.
** Possibly, the other evolutions replace Steel with some other type.
*** As a twist, a certain area will change a Pawniard's Dark type to Fighting, and these "White Forme" Pawniard evolve into White Forme versions of their Dark Forme counterparts, Fighting[=/=]X instead of Dark[=/=]X.
* Wouldn't all this make more sense if Bisharp did more with special attacks? I always saw bishops in a chess game as being magic users.
* The family only has a chess motif in its English names. They're more of a Super Sentai character. I'd rather leave the chess basis for an entirely new family.

[[WMG:The next Eeveelution(s) will be...]]
* Phanteon. You get it by having your Eevee reach minimum happiness while holding a razor claw. It will be [[DrivenToSuicide ghost type.]] YouBastard.
** I think a reaper cloth would be more fitting.
*** Or a Dusk Stone.
* Aveon. It's a flying type. It could be a parallel to Phanteon, like Espeon with Umbreon and Glaceon with Leafeon. This evolution is obtained by making Eevee reach maximum happiness while holding a sharp beak.
** Or a Shiny Stone
* Litheon (as in lithosphere). Ground type.
* Metaleon. Steel type.
** Orreon
** Ferreon
* Stoneon. Rock type.
** Jeweleon.
*** Eroseon.
* Scuffeon? Brawleon? Fighting type.
** Champeon!
** Xiaoleon.
** It should learn some moves that Espeon and Umbreon can (Psychic and Dream Eater... And there's more!), and if Eevee's leveled up with happiness in circumstances that produce neither Espeon nor Umbreon, You can get this Pokémon
* Toxeon. Poison type.
* Arachneon. Bug type.
* Fafneon (from the legendary dragon Fafnir). Dragon type.
** [[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Dovahkeon]].
* Eeveeon, a Normal-type Eeveelution that is a [[JackOfAllStats jack-of-all-stats]].
* Introduced in Gen 6, keeping with the new eeveelution every other gen.

[[WMG:Luvdisc will ''somehow'' manage to evolve into Alomomola...]]
Either through a strange middle evolution that is somehow considered a baby form for Alomomola but an evolved form for Luvdisc, or (more simply) just introducing a new item or other evolutionary method allowing Luvdisc to evolve. Lord knows Luvdisc needs the boost to its stats...
* Not possible, since they're not in the same egg groups (Alomomola is in the Water 1/Water 2 while Luvdisc is just in the Water 2).
** Tell that to Shedinja.

[[WMG: Cryogonal will get an evolution]]
And after evolving, it will gain a gender, given it can learn TM45 Attract.
* Its stats are too high for one. Although there is Rhydon...

[[WMG: Lapras will get a pre-evolution]]
It's ''8'02" (2.5m)''. How could you have an egg that big?!
* It also shares its base stat total with many fully evolved Pokémon such as Swampert, Crobat, and Magnezone. If Game Freak ever decides to expand the family, a baby is certainly the way.

[[WMG: Farfetch'd will get an evolution.]]
However, it wields a piece of bamboo and uses it as a bo staff. It will also have a move called "Stick Split" which causes it to [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin split]] its staff into a pair of Eskrima sticks, though I'm not sure what it would affect.
* It could work as the first Fighting/Flying type.

[[WMG: Ninetales will get an evolution.]]
A Fire/Ghost named Byakkoal.
* Never going to happen. Ninetales already has high stats and is fairly powerful as it is right now. Not to mention that no Pokémon that evolves via stone evolves further.

[[WMG: In the next generation, we will get what Reshiram and Zekrom as well as, possibly, Kyurem were before they split.]]
It'll be a three-headed dragon.
* Somebody likes [[http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/File:635Hydreigon.png 3 headed dragons]] a little too much.

[[WMG: Heatran is actually a pseudo legendary like Dragonite, Tyranitar etc.]]
Future gen will give it 2 Pre-evos! One Fire Pokemon evolves to a Fire/Steel Pokemon, which then evolves into Heatran. Oh, and only the middle one can breed.

[[WMG: There will be a rare item that you can give to a Phione that will let it evolve into Manaphy]]
No more will Phione be just the mass-produced cheaper version of Manaphy, it will be able to become the real thing!

[[WMG: New Ponyta family members]]
There will be an alternate evolution for Ponyta that's a Fire/Flying pegasus, as well as a convergent evolution for this new Pokémon and Rapidash that's an [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic alicorn]].

[[WMG: Dunsparce will get an evolution]]
In order to acquire another typing, or be more useful.

[[WMG: Beheeyem will get an evolution]]
Called Emeybee and looking like a [[TheMenInBlack man in a black suit]]. It will be difficult to obtain, because of how extremely secretive it is about its own existence.
* Sounds like a good candidate for a psychic/dark type.

[[WMG: There will be midvolutions]]
A mon that debuts in a later generation that fits in an existing line (or two), but in the middle. Examples could be between:
* Luvdisc and Alomomola.
* Rufflet and Braviary.
* Vullaby and Mandibuzz.
* Larvesta and Volcarona.
* Magikarp and Gyarados.

[[WMG: Eevee will get more evolutions, but none will have Special Defense as its lowest stat.]]
Eevee, being the evolution Pokemon will get evolutions for each of the 18 types, including a Normal-type evolution likely simply called Eon.

Future Eeveelutions will, naturally, follow the trend of base stats being 130/65/60/110/95/65 in some order.

However, it has been noticed that none of the existing Eeveelutions have either HP or Special Defense as their lowest stat. That none have had HP is simply a coincidence, and the remaining 10 Eeveelutions will feature at least one with HP as its lowest stat.

However, that none of them have Special Defense as their lowest stat is a conscious choice, because Eevee's highest stat is Special Defense, which is 65. Thus, any Eeveelution that had Special Defense as their lowest stat, which would be 60, would have a lower Special Defense than Eevee, which they choose to intentionally avoid.

[[WMG: The Eviolite does not gives us the final answer to which Pokemon won't get an evolution.]]
For example, if Fearow were to be a new evolution, it will be retconned to receive the x1.3 defense boosts from the hold item. Likewise, is Tangela were to have a new pre evo, it will be retconned to receive x1.3 effectiveness from Eviolite compared to its original x1.5 effectiveness.

[[WMG: The same goes to Mega Stones as well]]
But here's the catch: this only applies to Pokemon that only look like its fully evolved and evolving it does not involve leveling up. Rhydon and Dusclops are two examples who could gain a mega evolution despite already having an evolution.

[[WMG: The Ralts line will eventually get a 3rd branch]]
Gardevoir is a either gender species based on an RPG Mage.
Gallade is a male only species based on an RPG Knight.
3rd evolution a female only species based on an RPG Rogue.

[[WMG:Two items will be introduced giving Luvdisc a branching evolution into Alomomola and a new Pokemon.]]
When Luvdisc holds Item A, it will evolve into Alomomola; when it holds Item B, it will evolve into the new Pokemon (let's call it Daveheart). Daveheart will have stats more reflective of Luvdisc's with an emphasis on speed, while of course Alomomola actually drops speed for lots of HP. The effects of Items A and B are permanent such that when an Alomomola or Daveheart breeds, it will only produce another of its own species--unless it's holding the Item from the opposite evolutionary branch (in which case it produces a Luvdisc), similar to how Incenses work. This explains the previous evolutionary separation of Luvdisc and Alomomola.
* Alternately, the above could be done without Daveheart, but introducing Daveheart means it's not so strange when Luvdisc loses speed to become Alomomola.

* Mega Mew
** At least two different ones
* Mega Meganium
** It will become a Grass/Steel Type with the ability Grass Pelt.

** Mega Girafarig could resemble Girafarig's [[http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/File:Alpha_kirinriki.png original design]], but with the main head looking calm, collected, and defensive, with the back head looking like the rather more sadistic-like tail, looking more offensive. If this will be the case, It'll be a Dark/Psychic or Psychic/Dark, and an ability that works like Aegishash's Stance Change would be a perfect fit.

* Mega Ho-oh
* Mega Celebi
* Mega Beautifly

* Mega Slaking
** Given that Slaking's stats are already on par with most legendaries, this would be too much of a GameBreaker unless it somehow ended up with an even ''more'' detrimental ability than Truant.
** Instead of boosting its stats, Mega Slaking will replace Truant with a more beneficial ability.
* Mega Delcatty

* Mega Lickilicky
* Mega Rhyperior
* Mega Magmortar
* Mega Togekiss
* Mega Porygon-Z
* Mega Probopass
* Mega Rotom.
** Make it Electric/Fairy, because [[TheFairFolk Rotom is mischievous around technology.]] Prankster Ability would be rather suiting, if they don't retcon it into being a Dream World Ability.
* Mega Dialga
* Mega Palkia
* Mega Regigigas
** Gets rid of Slow Start and has Huge Power instead. And improved Attack. (Oh shi-) To keep it from being horribly broken, Speed is toned down, to the point where normal Regigigas can outrun it while suffering from Slow Start. And maybe lowered defenses.
** It will be Primal Regigigas instead, just like Kyogre and Groudon. It will parallel with Primal Rayquaza just as how Lugia forms a duo with Ho Oh. Its motif includes the gemstone Topaz and the Greek Alphabet, Tau.
* Mega Giratina
* Mega Arceus
** Might have been where it got its 1000 arms from.
* Mega Victini
* Mega Serperior
* Mega Emboar
* Mega Samurott
* Mega Excadrill
* Mega Zebstrika

*** This Mega Hydreigon retains the Levitate ability, giving it only one single weakness (Fighting). It also gains greater attacking stats (130 Atk. / 150 Sp. Atk.) and slightly better defense (100 each). However, it will be much, much slower than normal Hydreigon.
* Mega Volcarona
* Mega Reshiram
* Mega Zekrom
* Mega Kyurem
** I always imagined that Mega Kyurem would resemble "the original dragon" before it split into Reshiram, Zekrom, and the remaining husk that is this Pokémon. Might resemble a well-working fusion between Black Kyurem and White Kyurem.
* Mega Genesect
** Primal Genesect could make more sense as it was a different pokemon 300 million years ago, assuming that its former form was not Kabutops as many suspect.
* Mega Chesnaught
** Better Sp. Def., has ears, and shares the same color scheme as his evolution line.
* Mega Delphox
** Based on Xuanzang.
** Gains a BadassBeard, wand extends into a wooden staff and gains a [[NiceHat Fiery Wizard Hat]]. He will become a WizardClassic contrasting Braixen resembling a BlackMagicianGirl.
*** Also, has Magic Guard as ability.
* Mega Greninja
** Based on Sha Wujing, and has Frogadier's foam collar. Better Def./HP.

* Mega Goodra
** Dragon/Water makes perfect sense.

** Called Avenger Zygarde, and personifies GaiasVengeance, with all stats shot up through the roof
** More likely there will be Mega Zygarde X and Mega Zygarde Y, each with certain aspects of Xerneas/Yveltal.
*** It can only Mega Evolve as Zygarde Complete.
** Alternatively, Zygarde could become the first pokemon with ''both'' a Mega Evolution & Primal Reversion. Unless Rayquaza beats it to that of course.
* Mega Scrafty
** Stops holding its pants and gets TooManyBelts.

[[folder: Future region ideas]]

[[WMG: There will be a region in later generations geographically based on...]]
* An archipelago, like Indonesia for example.
* One or two states/territories of Australia, probably Victoria with at least part of Tasmania.
** This is also when we'll get triple-typing, since literally ''every Pokemon'' will be part-[[DeathWorld Poison type]].
** And there'll be three groups of villains, modelled on [[{{Underbelly}} the Carlton Crew, the Moran family, and the Williams gang]].
** Cities to be based on Melbourne (in two or more parts, as with Tokyo being represented by Saffron and Celadon City), Geelong, Ballarat, Bendigo, Wodonga, Hobart and Devonport (badges), along with Melton, Mildura, Hamilton, Launceston and Warrnambool (filler).
** At long, long last, a Poison-type Legendary would show its face here.
** And in the anime, Jessie and James would have counterparts named Kelly and Ned.

* Madagascar. Dozens of lemur-variant Pokemon!
** Doubtful: With the existence of the Pokerus, [[VideoGame/{{Pandemic}} you wouldn't be able to trade!]]
*** Except that the Pokerus doesn't hurt a pokemon so much as strengthen it.

* Some European country
** Great Britain, with a little bit of France. It even fits the Sinnoh/Hoenn model of self-contained area, so they can just copy/paste and then mess around, rather than work out where to stop like with Johto, Kanto, and Unova.
*** The British Isles as an actual series of Islands.
*** Depending on where you want to put it, there could be legends based of the Arthurian legend and Myth/CelticMythology. They'll probably do the Arthurian Legend first, since we know it better.
*** Interestingly enough, Welsh mythology comes handily with a pair of legendary dragons, the Red Dragon (for the Welsh) and the White Dragon (for the Saxons). It's an allegory for regional disputes in Britain.
** [[AllGermansAreNazis Germany. The Enemy Team will be the Nazi Party]] with the serial numbers filed off and no Holocaust-ish events.
*** Or the Bavarian {{Illuminati}}. [[ParanoiaFuel And the grunts don't use uniforms, but dress like ordinary civilians]].
** The Scandanavian Peninsula. The Cover Legendaries will be the more monstrous of the Children of Loki (Jormunganr and Fenrir).
*** Alternatively, Loki and Thor. Thor as a Electric/Fighting (or Steel) type and Loki as a Dark/something (Fire? Poison?). Loki would be in the Ditto egg group.
**** There's a suggestion above for Loki as an Ice/Dark type with Illusion (he's part frost-giant), plus there's also some speculation that Reshiram and Zekrom might already be based on aspects of Loki and Thor.
*** Note [[http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/b/b6/Unova_world_map.png this picture of the world from the Anime]]. The Scandanavian Peninsula is clearly visible. Hmm...
** Greece; they could base Pokemon off of Greek Myths like the Hydra.
** Italy: You can see it very distinctly on the anime map linked above. Villainous team will probably be a group trying to revive the poke-Roman Empire.
*** Or [[NightmareFuel are the Sicilian Mafia]].
*** Or there are two villanious teams ala Aqua and Magma. Each representing [[KnightTemplar the extremes]] of [[TheFundamentalist religion]] and secularism.
** Iberia, which is also very clearly on the aforementioned map. At least one Pokemon there would be based on a bull. The villain team could be based on Franco's fascist regime.

* The rest of the United States, along with Canada and Mexico (possibly all as one region).
** [[TheFamilyForTheWholeFamily New]] [[WeirdnessMagnet Jersey]].
*** If this does happen, it would almost certainly be the Johto to Unova's Kanto, with a Gold/Silver/Crystal style ability to return to Unova after beating the Elite Four.
*** If that happens, there better be a Jersey Devil Pokemon.
** The DeepSouth
*** With a forest at the west side of the region (representating the forests of Louisiana and eastern Texas).
*** A mountain at the east side of the region (representating the Southern Applachains/ Great Smoky Mountains).
*** About 3 water routes at the south end of the region (representating the Gulf of Mexico).
** The cities would include the following
*** The starting city, a city that would be medium sized (like Aspertia City), based off of Texas's [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beaumont%E2%80%93Port_Arthur_metropolitan_area Golden Triangle]].
*** A large city that would be home to the local criminal team, based off of Miami, Florida.
*** Another large city similar to Nimbasa City, based off of Orlando, Florida.
*** A city that would house the game corner with a mansion nearby, based off of SW Tennessee/ NW Mississippi.
* Chicagoland is better fitting than New Jersey because Osaka is basically Chicago in Japan.
** Canada: Icey location similar to the northern part of Sinnoh.
*** The northern part of the region would be like this. Other than that, we'd have a Castelia-like Toronto analogue with a tall CN-like tower that gives you a great view of the whole region, a Montreal-based city with a Cirque du Soleil-themed gym and a few French-speaking NPC's (not to mention a Gym Leader who uses GratuitousFrench like Fantina - possibly Fantina herself), and an Edmonton-based city with the region's shopping mall crossed with a Nimbasa-ish amusement park (the West Edmonton Mall).
*** The region would also have Buffalo and [[ShoutOut Detroit]], since both cities are right on the border, and you can't forget about Vancouver, either. Not just that, but the Game Corner could be in either Windsor or [[ShoutOut Detroit]]. You'd also find [[DetroitRedWings Octillery]] and [[DetroitLions Shinx, Luxio and Luxray]] nearby.
** Mexico/Texas: Desert area filled with some {{Mayincatec}} ruins and some Wild West Cowboys.
*** Maybe the villian team could be [[RippedFromTheHeadlines a rogue militia or seccessionists]].
*** Sigilyph being there would be logical
** Florida: Similar to the resort area in DPPt, but bigger.
** D.C.: Politcs city, with a big Expy of the White House.
** California: Metropolis filled with celebrities (channeling LA, Hollywood, and San Francisco).
*** Specifically, the celebrities will be famous trainers from the previous gens, like Red, Gold, Brendan and May, Lucas and Dawn, Hilbert and Hilda, Lance, Steven Stone, Cynthia, N, and Alder. Perhaps this is where that Champion vs. Champion Olympics-type event that Cynthia mentioned will take place?
*** Also, in the San Fran-based area, there'd be a streetcar system of some sort and [[AmbiguouslyGay Trainers with male Gardevoir and Gothitelle]].
** Las Vegas: Hopefully the Game Corner would be brought back.
** Arizona: A possible visit to [[VideoGame/PokemonColosseum Orre]] JustBeforeTheEnd.
*** Or just Orre as it exists in Colosseum/Gale of Darkness, albeit in handheld form. I like that desert just how it is.
** Regions could be in order of distance from Unova(New York): New Jersey for Gen VI, and Maryland(with Washington DC) for Gen VII. Gen VIII can be Canada.
** New England. With a major city (think Castelia or Saffron) at the approximate location of Boston, an Undella Town-esque location at roughly where Cape Cod is, access to Unova, and of course a huge amount of new Water type Pokemon (think new lobster, quahog, cod, and whale Pokemon, among loads of others). Also this would be the perfect region to introduce a turkey Pokemon, perhaps as the regional [[ComMons ComMon]] bird line.

* The Amazon Rainforest: The region will be surrounded by forests, and the large Amazon River will be the spot for surfing.
** [[TheLongList Brazil, Peru, Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador, Bolivia, Guyana, Suriname or Guiana]]?
* A totally original world
** If a new world would be used, why not make a medieval Europe fantasy setting, where most of the traditional Pokemon mechanics like Pokeballs are used with magic? And maybe if we get trainers with swords and stuff, we could use the move Cut out of battle ourselves, or other HM possibilities. I don't see why not.

* Maybe somewhere in Russia?

* The Yucatan Peninsula, complete with Mayan and Aztec themed legendaries.

* New Zealand. Each island can be its own region, and be like the Kanto/Johto dynamic. New Zealand does have a pretty varied climate...
** Maybe Australia too ? Or the rest of Oceania ?
** A New Zealand region might have a larger variety of water Pokemon, since extra water area would facilitate that. Plus, more cetacean species are found near New Zealand than any other region on the planet.

* The Kiev Oblast in Ukraine. It could have an area with deserted buildings and lots of shiny pokemon.

* The Middle East. Bonus points if, given his VillainousBreakdown and the fact he's still alive, they use Ghetsis as a NoCelebritiesWereHarmed version of UsefulNotes/MuammarGaddafi.

* An African country. There certainly are many animals to make Pokemon of.
** The African continent as a whole could work well for a region, because it's so varied already. Deserts, grasslands, and rainforests, as well as massive lakes.

* I would go for anywhere in Canada. I pick Quebec, specifically Montreal. It could have an area based on the old port and there would be more ice types. Also the villanous group is a mafia that has hold of the local government and construction industry.

* Hong Kong. It could have a number of Chinese-inspired Pokemon, as well as some with some clear British influence.

* India. Has a lot of great wildlife to make Pokemon from, as well as some fantastic environments.
** A large river based off the Ganges would flow through it. It would be home to fish Pokemon, a gharial-like Pokemon, and perhaps even a Ganges river Pokemon.
** A tiger Pokemon would be present, of course. A rare white variation might be available as well.

* The Galapagos Islands. Will more likely be a small portion of a region rather than an entire region itself. It will be a collection of islands. Some of the islands will have some of the same Pokemon, however, each island will have a different form, with different forms maybe even having different stats.
** The region itself could be based on Ecuador and Peru, spanning from the Amazon to the Andes (where we'd surely see an ancient city based on Machu Picchu) to the coast.

* China as a whole. There will be big, crowded cities along with rural areas and lots of wild places. Running through the middle of the region will be a great wall. The two legendaries will be a fenghuan phoenix and a dragon.
** It will also have a set of four legendary Pokemon based on the four constellations: the white tiger of the west, the black tortoise of the north, the azure dragon of the east and the vermilion bird of the south. Scattered about the region will be some regular Pokemon based off the animals of the Chinese zodiac, and owning them all will cause an NPC to give you a special Pokemon, or give you a map or key to a legendary Pokemon.

* Mexico, Puerto Rico, or Spain. Hispanic culture would be nice in the games.

* Remember how GSC/HGSS had two regions in the same game? Why not make two new regions for a future game and have them border each other? The backstory behind it could be say, the two regions are in territorial dispute and one side wants to take over the other, that way you could set up a conflict and have the villains be the leaders of that region. Some other stuff would include points in the story where you have to cross between regions, and can't do so until you get a passport or maybe have your passport get stolen later ECT.

[[WMG: One future region will be based off several non-Japanese Asian countries lumped together.]]
That way, there can be cool places based on these areas without having to wait for a whole new region. A large portion of it will be based on China, but there will be areas based off India, Korea, and various Middle Eastern countries. The visuals, Pokemon, and mythology will be based off those of the listed cultures.

[[WMG: One future region will be based off several European countries lumped together.]]
Similar to the above, it will be one big region with some countries more dominant than the others. There will be a Scandinavia type area full of creatures, and even a legendary or two, inspired by Norse myth. There might be some old Medieval ruins containing various dragon type Pokemon, maybe even a big legendary one hiding in a castle with some gold. There will be a Venice-style town that would allow you to use Surf to get around. (bonus points if Latias and/or Latias are available in this area) If the possibly France-based PokemonXAndY don't do it first, there will be areas based on the Chauvet and Lescaux caves of France. Inside, the player will be able to see cave paintings of fossil Pokemon, perhaps even with a little Mew painting hidden somewhere. Fossils could be found inside the cave.


[[folder: Ideas for future villain teams.]]

* A band of [[RightWingMilitiaFanatic military-themed types]] who want to overthrow the reigon's government to "keep order" and prevent catastrophies like those of previous generations. Possibly called Team Ironside.
** (Original Poster) Opposing them is a band of anarchists who want to tear down the government...and not replace it. Possibly called [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Team Blackheart.]]

* A CyberPunk gang, with the token "subjugate all of nauture" plot.

* A group based off TheUbermensch and TheFundamentalist respectively. In a way, they will personify the extremes of belief and non-belief. They will be at each other's throats, much like Team Aqua and Magma. TheUbermensch is led by a Satan expy Pokémon, [[AboveGoodAndEvil not necessarily evil or good.]] TheFundamentalist is led by a CrystalDragonJesus, who wants to restore the old belief system.

* Lucent Types, an artificial Pokemon type that takes reduced damage from all Pokemon types except other Lucent types, who hit super effective against it and shadow types, which it has a neutral relationship with. A type that was not meant to exist, it can only be acquired through a long, artificial process of extracting a Pokemon's emotion, making them like Cyrus. They are primarily used by an organization called "Falling Star" that believes the mutual understanding between Pokemon and people is a weakness, and for society to advance, people need to start treating Pokemon less like friends and more like tools.
** This sounds ''waaaay'' too much like a rip-off of Team Cipher.
** To make this less like Cipher, it could be in a region where breakthroughs are being made in the area of synthetic materials and alternate energy. The evil team could be actively rejecting it, violently clinging to their now obsolete Ursaring skins and Magneton generators, while breaking into the national park to poach Farfetch'd.

* As a massive TakeThat to the portion of the FanDumb who believes that Game Freak should've stopped after the first and/or second gen, they should make a criminal organization set in the Kanto Region whose goal is to purge the world of all pokemon who don't orignate from the Kanto and/or Johto Region. You can even say that they're [[ANaziByAnyOtherName nazis by another name]].
** That could work in a new region that has no previously introduced Pokemon in its National Dex, maybe generation six or seven. Pokemon is old enough that if the new group is only using generation one Pokemon that [[UnusableEnemyEquipment you can't get]] [[PlayableEpilogue yet]], they could come across as mysterious to new players with their [[EarlyInstallmentWeirdness light colors and 8 bit cries]], [[TakeThat following trainers who say all Pokemon must be like this.]]

* A team of Mad Scientists! This would be contrasted by a region of ancient legend and harmony with nature, a bit like Sinnoh but turned UpToEleven - so, obviously, not much [[ForScience SCIENCE!]]. The scientist team would be trying to overthrow the natural order of the region and subjugate it by having their leader control the legendary Pokemon (using [[RunningGag SCIENCE!]]). The leader themself would be a ''huge'' Mad Scientist whose motivation is the fact that SCIENCE! is limited by pesky rules about morals and the like - think Mugabe in Pokemon, only with the horrible stuff filtered out. If they suceed, though, the region will be ''utterly trashed'', so you ''have'' to stop them. Also, you know the leader? Yeah... [[spoiler:they're the professor, who was using you the whole time.]] [[OverlyLongGag FOR SCIENCE!]]

* A team with no set uniforms based on Hipsters, trying to get people to stop working with Pokemon just because everyone is doing it. They will disband when it finally sinks into their leader's head that ''they'' are using Pokemon to achieve these goals, or else when it is pointed out that if everyone stops using Pokemon, ''not using them'' will become mainstream.

* A team based on 40's era mob who will try to rule the criminal criminal underworld using Pokemon. They will attack Pokemon centers and Poke Marts for not paying tribute. Their leader would a [[Main/LawfulEvil lawful evil]] [[Main/VillainWithGoodPublicity villain with good publicity]] who tries to kill the protagonist with a [[Main/UriahGambit Uriah Gambit]] but the protagonist will be rescued by 1.)Red, 2.)The professor, 3.) The protagonist's love interest. After his real motives are discovered, the two join forces and defeat him and get proof of his connection to the villainous team.

* There will be a villanous team that has considerably more advanced technology than everybody else. The future villanous team will do something involving causing a meteor shower with a nearby comet. Everybody will learn to their shock that the resulting meteorites had pokemon in them that are ice/rock types (inspired by some of the above speculation in types not yet done). They are an evolutionary family with the last one being a pseudo legendary. The bad guys get over their shock first, find out the pokemon's stats and [[XanatosSpeedChess take full advantage of the unexpected turn of events]].

* There will be a villainous team who will later be revealed to be [[spoiler:working for the local MegaCorp, and the leader of the team is the CorruptCorporateExecutive. Could be an {{expy}} of [[Franchise/ResidentEvil Umbrella]]]].

* A team that abuses the genetic relationship between humans and Pokemon to produce an army of SuperSoldiers by force breeding Pokemon with humans. In the Pokemon world, since offspring inherit the physical attributes of the mother and the powers of the father, they will kidnap unsuspecting women from various towns to breed them with Pokemon. The resulting offspring will be a human with the powers of their respective Pokemon father. [[spoiler:And the protagonist is one of them.]]

* Professor Oak will eventually be outed as the franchise's BiggerBad.
** He uses child labor and doesn't pay them, he sends unprepared children out into a dangerous world with only one Pokemon to protect them, and he drives all his charges to catch every Pokemon in existence, including the ones that if caught would bring about calamity.
** Check out the GRAMPS theory about the villainous teams. Galactic, Rocket, Aqua, Magma, Plasma. All we need is Team S____ and we're set to go.

* There was something I saw on Website/YouTube... and got inspired by it. Two new villain teams. Team NostalgiaFags and NewFags. One wants to erase from existence all Pokémon which National Dex No. is 152 or higher (ie. anything past Mew) and the other will do the opposite, delete all but Gen VI. The protagonist will use a mix of both Gen I and VI (to make both teams go insane). The teams will go as far as use overpowered Pokémon of their Generation (including Mewtwo with Psystrike). Their fate would be rather odd - [[spoiler:They would destroy and erase each other in a horrifying way, thanks to player]]. Of course, that would be a Double-Edged sword, as [[spoiler: Destroying each other, they would create a massive explosion of some kind, that would ruin the balance and peace of the once calm and ordinary region]]. Due to this, many new areas would be available to the player, granting an access to about 66.6% of the pre-Generation VI Pokémon in one way or another. That would give 432-433 Pokémon to catch (9.001% of that would be version-exclusive – that's 39 Pokémon exclusive to one version, and another 39 to other. For comparision the highest version-exclusives is in White, due to White Forest. Many Pokémon are catchable in Generation V, but only in White Forest. That gives White version a grand total of about 116 Pokémon that can be catched in White, but not in Black. ''116''. What I proposed is barely 1/3 of what Game Freak did), much more than even the New Unova Pokédex (301 vs 432-433)

* A group of HeroWithBadPublicity [[HeroAntagonist antagonists]] that you are forced to pursue. [[spoiler:The real bad guys will have infiltrated several sections of society, such as police and breeding centres. The player will be forced to root them out,]] though given the extent of the problem and the fact that you will have gone all InspectorJavert on a group of innocents, this will probably have a BittersweetEnding.

* A group of [[WellIntentionedExtremist well intentioned extremists]] who try to end the sufferings of the world, but end up [[NiceJobBreakingItHero making things worse]] or brings about TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt. After this happens, the leader realizes what s/he had done and works with you to [[SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong fix what they had done]]. And after it's all said and done, you and the leader leave on good terms.

* A group that isn't really evil. They're just doing everything they can to keep people on their toes and ready to defend themselves from random attacks. That way, if a real evil organization ever shows up, the populace will be more prepared to defend itself.

* A team with good goals that just happen to go against the protagonist's mindset. The protagonist is a VillainProtagonist.

* The group where several of the gym leaders and elite 4 members are involved with.

* A group that is based on the Westboro Baptist Church.
** [[TakeThat Now now, I don't think Gamefreak wants someone worse than Ghetsis.]]

* A Lovecraftian-esque mad cult who wants to release their [[EldritchAbomination eldritch abominations]] across the world. Said abominations will [[AscendedGlitch be inspired by the glitch Pokemon of old.]]

* There will be a villainous team whose leader turns out to be [[spoiler:only the second-in-command. The real leader is actually [[PlayerPunch the main hero]]]].

* There will be a religious-esque team who's fully convinced that all [[DarkIsEvil Dark-Type Pokemon are evil]] and must be purged from the world. This could go hand-in-hand with the WMG about a Dark-Type Gym Leader, with the Leader later convincing them that [[DarkIsNotEvil what they think is wrong]].

* As Generation V deconstructs the idea of Pokemon battles, this villainous team will deconstruct the very existence of Pokemon and how they ultimately overpower humanity. This villainous team will want to ensure that humanity is at no risk from the potential death machines that are Pokemon, planning to put human beings on the same level as them. Similar to Pokewood, the villains themselves will battle you. They will have other Pokemon, [[HypocrisyNod but be completely aware of the contradiction]]; only using them because they're not powerful enough to do so themselves. The BigBad will come from a distant nation, [[BadFuture or possibly even the future]], where Pokemon have taken over. His/her experiments to give humanity a fighting chance will have progressed to the point where [[YouAreWhatYouHate he/she herself has effectively become a Pokemon herself]], most likely the legendary mascot of the other game (the mascot duo will have the Pokemon you don't get have reached a dormant state, which the BigBad uses for this).

* A cross between Objectivists ŕ la Andrew Ryan, conspiracy theorists and McCarthyists. They're persuaded the government (if there is one) is too weak against other villainous teams, that it hides the truth, and imposes pesky regulations on the battle system. They want to get rid of the Gym/Elite Four system, take over the Safari zones, and eliminate all conflict between Pokémon and humans so that the latter can have absolute control over the former. We will also learn that gym badges owe their power to some legendaries, and are all made in a specific town of the new region.
** This evil team will also want to make pokémon centers charge for healing, because anything worth doing is worth doing for profit, and poor people shouldn't become pokémon trainers anyway.

* A team that does its work [[WellIntentionedExtremist for the betterment of humankind.]] They decide that Pokémon are dangerous creatures that hinder human advancement, but see the potential in their powers, so their ultimate goal is to replicate the same powers within humans so that humans could build their civilizations bigger and better than they previously could, as well as protect themselves from the Pokémon. After that, most of the dangerous little freaks would be redundant to the world, so the team would have to result to mass killings of species at large. The only ones left would be domesticated or used for livestock. Of course, using Pokémon would be a necessary evil, but after their work is completed, they'd likely kill theirs along with the others.
** Alternatively, the team could be raging human supremacists- those that believe that only humans were meant to control the Pokemon world. Their main goal would be the extreme domestication of non-threatening Pokemon and the ''genocide'' of those they see as unfit to live in the human world. This would involve major Orwellian brainwashing to make people act like those Pokemon never existed, and that it was always humans who controlled the land. The opposing team would be on the opposite side of the spectrum- a group of extreme misanthropes that advocate the genocide of ''humanknd''. Their ultimate goal is to make Pokemon kill humans for entering their habitat and building over their land. After their goal is completed, they'd kill themselves along with them. They could also take a Conversion Bureau approach to it: They'd make people believe that Pokemon are perfect creatures, and that they would be better people if they became Pokemon themselves, losing their human memories in the process. The human race would be placed in a MortonsFork: either convert into a Pokemon, avert the Humancide and die by the first team, or stay human and die by the misanthropes.

* Sooner or later there'd be a team hell-bent on figuring out every nuance of a pokemon for the hell of it. They'd kidnap and conduct mad science on pokemon, often in gruesome fashion, and relay their findings to professors to reap the benefits, like, say, money or power. As the player finds out later, this is where some of the ''darker'' entries in the Pokedex come from.

* Related to the "Team and Journey echo" entry in the next folder, a team that uses ''[[ChildSoldier children]]'' to carry out their dirty work. The kids would be intensely trained to use pokemon exceptionally well in an attempt to match and surpass the bane of most Evil Crime Organizations in the Pokemon world- [[KidHero young punks]] like the protagonist and others. They'd be scattered all across the region, battling you at opportune times along your routes to get the skinny on you- but you would ''never be able to tell which kid it is''. The head, as it's revealed, is no older than you, and DangerouslyGenreSavvy to boot, seeing that it'd take a similar-minded kid to take down one like you.

* A Team bordering on Illuminati-level importance, where the Evil Organization bit is just a front for the ''real'' power they have. The team has members in every single aspect of the region, ranging from members within the Pokémon center, to members within the Gyms (Like Giovanni), to members working on the PC programs, to the police force, up to and including your professor and most likely your ''government''. The team is known to all, posters advertising themselves and how much power they hold over the region, [[NineteenEightyFour Big Brother]] style. They work on schemes out in the open, doing whatever they like to Pokémon, and when people oppose them, they threaten shutting down everything they have power over. You job is to uncover the conspiracy and end their schemes once and for all.

** Alternatively, the team still remains in secret, but that becomes the reason why nobody but the local KidHero could do anything about the team -- they're too scared to try anything, lest they end up on the "Missing Persons" list in the papers.
** Combined with the "Experiments on Pokémon for profit" theory, the implications become ''horrendous''. A trainer could be buying something from the Poké Mart that you think would be perfectly fine, but they could be something like poison or chemicals that could damage the Pokémon. And when the poor sap brings it to the Center to treat it for its sudden illness, the nurse could be sitting back, writing notes on how it reacted to the chemicals, or even worse -- Performing further experiments on the creature to see how it reacts while drugged. ''No authority figure would be able to be trusted.''

* A Team attempting to gain control over Aura (In some Pokemon canon, this is hinted to be the force behind all Pokemon's Power and the same lifeforce that Xerneas and Yveltal had control over) in order to power up the power of Pokemon everywhere or use the power for themselves. Names could be Team Aura or Team Force. If the latter name is used, the team will include a ton of Shout-Outs to the Star Wars universe and particularly, Siths and Jedi. In fact, this team could be considered the Sith Order of the Pokemon universe as opposed to the Aura Guardians being the Jedi.

* A guy like Hitler if they have a region based off of Germany. The future team's leader will be like the Hitler of Pokemon.

* A group of Pokemon who want to eliminate humanity/kick humanity out of the region. The leader is either a Pokemon using transform/illusion to look human or/and a pseudo-legendary

* Looker has been visiting various regions to recruit the best of the villain teams for his own ultimate villain team. The "International Police" either don't exist or are [[PoliceAreUseless about as competent as the other police in the games]]. Looker's team will appear in Generation VII once the Generation III remakes give him the chance to recruit members of Team Aqua and Team Magma.

* A team based around PoliticalCorrectnessGoneMad and to a lesser extent, [[Literature/NineteenEightyFour Big Brother]]. This team would aim to be the CulturePolice and would try to ban Pokémon battles both because they find battling inherently offensive to the Pokémon's feelings [[ItsAllAboutMe or their own sensibilities]]. They would infiltrate various forms of society and try to stamp out the League. Their methods would be SinisterSurveillance and espionage that exceeds even the NSA, and the ability to make any dissenter's or opponent's lives a living hell through [[RetGone manipulation]] [[FrameUp of records]], slander, MindControl and [[XanatosGambit vari]][[BatmanGambit ous]] [[ThanatosGambit gam]][[XanatosSpeedChess bits]]. Using Pokémon like Aegislash, Ditto and Hypno to further their narratives. They would also be 100% unaware of the inherent hypocrisy of using pokemon battles to stop pokemon battling.

* A team that [[VillainProtagonist the player]] is a member of.

* A team with members based off the SevenDeadlySins. For contrast, perhaps there could be gym leaders based off the SevenHeavenlyVirtues.

[[folder: Future Gym Leader/Elite Four/story ideas]]

[[WMG: The next Kanto remake we get will feature Mewtwo as the cover legendary, and the story will revolve around it.]]
And it'll also have its own battle theme (possibly a remix of its Stadium theme). Hinted at very slightly by its new signature move in Black and White (Psystrike) despite being unobtainable.
* And it would be called Pokemon Indigo, after both Mewtwo's color scheme and the Indigo League. Uniquely, Mew will play an important part. Either you can catch it, or it'll be the Pokemon of the bad guys/other who want Mewtwo.

[[WMG: In the next gen, the Elite Four will be entirely composed of previous characters]]
The've already shown they have no problem having previous characters become Elite Four (Koga and Caitlin), so in the next gen we'll see an elite four composed of...

* Saturn: He has learned that extremism is not a solution, and becomes an Elite Four member as repentance.
* N: This time, he's trying to achieve his goal peacefully, after discovering Ghetsis' trick in gen 5.
* Giovanni: He attempted to redeem himself after Red beat him, but fell back to darkness when Neo Team Rocket appeared. Gold defeating him made him turn back to good.
* Miror B: Hey, he's an EnsembleDarkHorse, I'm sure Game Freak can think of a way to redeem him. Plus, he has AwesomeMusic.

And the Champion will be... [[spoiler:Professor Oak !]]

[[WMG: In Gen VI or the rumored Gen V remake, there will be a league composed of past Champions in the post-postgame.]]
Basically, this would be the analogue to Red in Gold/Silver (where he's the definitively final boss), but this time with all of the Champions of the previous games. All of the Pokemon would be around Lv. 80-100. Such a league would be:
* Blue (Gen I) - He would have a team very similar, if not identical to that of his Champion team from either Gen I or III (FR/LG), of course buffed to around Lv. 80-86. His battle music would be a remix of his Gen I battle theme (similar to what was found in Black and White).
* Lance (Gen II) - His team would be very similar, if not identical, to that of his Gen IV final Champion battle (after the Kanto arc in HG/SS), of course buffed to Lv. 84-89. His battle music would be a remix of his Gen II/IV battle theme.
* Steven Stone (Gen III) - Once again, his team would be similar to, if not identical to, that of his Gen III Champion battle team (because we don't care about Wallace :P), leveled around Lv. 88-93. His battle theme would be a remix of his Gen III battle theme, or his Gen V battle theme if an R/S remake comes to fruition.
* Cynthia (Gen IV) - Her team would be similar, if not identical to, that of her Gen IV team (not her Gen V team), leveled around Lv. 90-95. Her battle theme would be a remix of her Gen IV battle theme, because [[YMMV her Gen IV battle theme sounds better and is more iconic than the Gen V theme.]]
* The final member is up in the air. Depending on when they implement this, if ever, the main portion of the league could end here (if this is implemented in Gen V) or include Alder (Gen V; if they implement this in Gen VI). If it is implemented, Alder's team would be very similar to his B/W team and be leveled around Lv. 92-96. The battle theme would be a remix of his Gen V battle theme.
* The Champion of Champions would be Red (Gens I [PC] and II [NPC]). His team would be very similar to his Gen II or IV team (with maybe Espeon/Lapras swapped out for something else) at Lv. 97-100. His Pikachu, obviously, would be the sole Lv. 100 Pokemon on his team. His battle score, contrary to everyone else, would be a rather original composition, starting out rather epicly at first, and gaining more epicness as the battle continues, until he reaches his last Pokemon, at which point it completely becomes a tense and epic version of the main Pokemon battle theme.
** Note that Cynthia mentions an idea for such a thing in B/W. Such an event may be more likely to happen in the Gen V Wii game we are rumored to have, being a secret cup that functions as a "final challenge" akin to Stadium's Mewtwo fight. Throw in Wes and Professor Oak to make it eight.
[[WMG: The Champion of generation VI will be Caitlin, with Clay and Marshal from Unova in the region's elite four.]]
Clay's daughter will run Driftveil Gym, Brycen has relocated Icirrus Gym at Twist Mountain, and Alder is the new leader of Opelucid gym.
* Jossed
[[WMG: Team Rocket will come back]]
[[HeelFaceTurn But as a crime fighting organization.]] ...Or vigilantes.

[[WMG: The leader of a villainous team will be... the professor who gave you your starter.]]
And the [=PokeDex=] he/she gave you? It's been tracking your location all over the region, transmitting the conversations you have, and generally aiding the bad guys in staying one step ahead of you. Being betrayed like that would be the mother of all [[PlayerPunch Player Punches]].
** Of course, after you learn this fact, there will have to be a replacement professor (or a HeelFaceTurn by the original) so you can still have your Dex evaluated. Maybe the evil professor's parent, sibling, or child?

[[WMG: You will face the Professers from each gen in an elite 4 style BossRush.]]
They will all have Max IV's and optimised EV's. The levels will go from 80 to 100. The Pokémon they will use is as follows (in the order they will be fought):
* Juniper: Victini, Serperior, Emboar, Samurott, Zoroark, and Hydreigon.
* Rowan: Torterra, Infernape, Empoleon, Garchomp, Lucario, and Shaymin (Sky Forme in day, Land Form at night).
* Birch: Sceptile, Blaziken, Swampert, Kecleon, Metagross, and Jirachi.
* Elm: Meganium, Typhlosion, Feraligatr, Togekiss, Tyranitar, and Celebi.
* Oak: Venusaur, Charizard, Blastoise, Pikachu, Dragonite, and Mew.
** Why can't Professor Juniper have a Victini? It's legendary, small in stature,event only, and can fly, like all the other ones you mentioned. Actually, this means Victini, Shaymin, Jirachi, Celebi, and Mew have a pattern going. I wonder which small, flying, sort of cute, flying, event only legendary will be in Pokemon X and Y...

[[WMG: The 3 uncaptured and unrepentant villains will team up]]
Ardos, Ghetsis (perhaps with the Shadow Triad), and Cyrus will team up. A match made in... I'd say hell, but it's often interpreted as exactly what Cyrus wants. As for why Cyrus (destroy the world and remake it without emotion) will team up with the other two/five, to quote Bulbapedia, "Shadow Pokémon are created through an undisclosed process that '''removes the Pokémon's emotions''', turning it into a soulless fighting machine" and Ein (who should know) refers to the process as "shutting the door to their hearts"; perhaps he would like to use the process on '''humans''', and all three are easily sick enough to do it. Bonus sicko points if he does it (and Ardos goes along with it) on Eldes, who tries to stop him. Given that we have a Wii game coming out, rumored to be an XD like game, it may not need to wait till next gen.
** Cyrus can be TheChessmaster, Ghestis TheStarscream [[EvenEvilHasStandards that Cyrus hates]], and Ardos will be the CorruptCorporateExecutive. Oh, and you get to play as Eldes, serving as TheAtoner. As him, you start out with Glaceon and Leafeon, carrying out the tradition. Archie, Maxie, and N will appear, having all been {{Well Intentioned Extremist}}s before their plans were ''spectacularly'' foiled (by which we mean that [[GoneHorriblyWrong it became]] ''[[NiceJobBreakingItHero painfully]]'' [[OhCrap apparent]] that they were doomed to failure to begin with.) The BigBad trio will be trying to corrupt the lake trio, in an attempt to close all hearts everywhere. Being the least monstrous of the group, one could ''maybe'' expect Cyrus to have a HeelFaceTurn, that'll lead to RedemptionEqualsDeath.
*** If not Eldes, N will be the male hero, with a female former admin of Team Magma or Team Aqua as the female hero.

[[WMG: Archie and Maxie will return as double battle gym leaders.]]
Similar to Tate and Liza, but will be Dark type primarily, with all the Gym Trainers using Ground and Water types, based on their former alignment.
* Or they'll be a Water and Ground type gym respectively, however you only fight one. It depends on which type you started with.

[[WMG: There will be a Dark-type Gym leader.]]
Ever since Gen II, there has never been a Dark-type Gym Leader. It's high time we get one.
* They could be dressed out in full gothic getup (black clothes, leather (trench)coat, black/purple lipstick and eyeshadow, [[RedEyesTakeWarning red eyes]], etc.), but turns out to be the ''[[PerkyGoth most]]'' [[PerkyGoth fun-loving and lighthearted out of all the gym leaders]].
* Maybe their gym puzzle will establish them as a TricksterMentor type who is a PerkyGoth. At the same time, they will show themselves to be ThatOneBoss of the region.

[[WMG: There will be even more dual/multi-type Gym leaders.]]
* Sure, we had Blue Oak in Generation II and Cilan/Cress/Chili in Generation VI, but can't we have more gyms comprising of two or more types? Okay, maybe not from the very first gym, but from the 5th Gym Leader. All these gyms may can use any Mons of either type applicable, but preference will be given for the specific dual-typed Mons.
** Possible Suggestions (5-7th):
*** Water/Ice with a Melting Glacier Badge
*** Grass/Poison with a Poison Ivy Badge
*** Electric/Steel with a Circuit Badge
*** Dark/Ghost with a Creepy Badge etc.
*** The 8th and final may be multi-type, run by a multi-industry conglomerate CEO (think of the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zaibatsu former zaibatsus in Japan]]).

[[WMG: The BigBad will be a female.]]
Gen IV introduced the first female Champion, and Gen V introduced the first female professor. Perhaps Gen VI will follow this pattern.
* And she'll be poratrayed somewhat sympathetically, and/or have [[WellIntentionedExtremist goals that are essentially noble]]. It would be a nice change of pace, and besides we really can't get more revoltingly evil than Ghetsis. Although this would bring calls of UnfortunateImplications among fans, seeing as she ''would'' be the first [[DoubleStandard female antagonist]]...
* Woah, slow down. We still need an official female rival. Bianca picked the starter weak to yours, and Dawn and May have the same problem AND they`re optional.
** We already got a female professor, mind you.

[[WMG: Gen VI will lack an evil team]]
Instead, the legendary just awakens on its own (perhaps as a once-every-100-years ordeal) and causes wild Pokémon to go... [[{{Pun}} wild]].
* Or it ''leads'' the evil team.

[[WMG: Generation VI will have multiple protagonists, and span multiple regions. The story will revolve around the previous villain teams.]]
I know, it's not likely to happen (unless they suddenly move the main series onto the Wii), but I'd like to see it. It could be like, have one character battle with Team Rocket in Kanto and Johto, another thwart Team Magma and Aqua (who will both be treated as the ButtMonkey) in Hoenn, another character will stop Team Galactic in Sinnoh, and a final one will deal with Team Plasma in Unova. The protagonists will communicate with each other over the course of the plot and eventually meet up(somehow), and near the end the story becomes HijackedByGanon when Cipher shows up and declares their dominance, necessitating a massive EnemyMine with Giovanni, Archie, Maxie, Cyrus, and N (who is representing Team Plasma, as I find it much more likely that Ghetsis would join Cipher).
* With the Wii U out, it's actually possible. You could start in a small region exclusive to the game and, so the game would never be classified as old, the other regions would be avaliable as free [=DLCs=]. The company could just put the newest region as a DLC a few months after the actual games comes out, eliminating (mostly) the problem of people not going to an actual store to buy the newest games and just buying the region on their game. The exclusive small region is a major factor in the game, as the game at least has to have '''some''' original content. The region could be a multiplayer game, with other players appearing as their profile Mii. There could be servers, ala clubpenguin.com, so people could meet at a specific server. There would have to be a '''lot'' of servers, though.

[[WMG: The next game will be a direct sequel to Gen V in the way Gen II was to I]]
By that I mean the story will directly follow the story of a revived Team Plasma and the main character's struggle to stop them. N will be heavily involved in the story again but this time as the game's Pokemon Professor. Ghetsis will be the final boss again but with a new team. Cheren and Bianca will make cameos also: the former as a Gym Leader and the latter as another Professor. After you complete the main story you are allowed to return to the Unova region and see how it has changed in the last how many years since the Gen V. The champion will alternate between Hilbert or Hilda depending on the gender the player pics for their character.
* ...Well, well... Black 2 and White 2 are sequels, though they pick on 2 years later. Cheren is a Gym Leader, right... while Bianca is not a Professor herself, she is an assistant to one. Ghetsis wasn't the final boss, though. The champion isn't old protagonist, it's [[spoiler:Iris]].
[[WMG: Generation VI will have an AnotherSideAnotherStory plot]]

The story returns to Kanto and Johto, some time after Gold/Silver (possibly after Black/White). The hero of one game starts in Kanto, the other in Johto (preferably in previously unseen towns close to the established ones). The villainous team(s) are operating in both regions, and we frequently hear references to their plans in the other game. The story climaxes when you reach the end of Victory Road and join with the hero of the other game to defeat the villains. And then in both games when you travel to the other region you will witness the aftermath of some of the other hero's actions.

[[WMG: We will get a female dark type gym leader who shares the gym with a male fire type gym leader]]
They need a dark type gym. They can gym leaders who are in their mid-teens and they are half siblings. Then the male fire type gym leader will be the first gym leader to take of a baby. The baby will be their half brother.

[[WMG: Generation VI will have a NiceJobBreakingItHero plot]]

As in: the usual "team after legendary, you catch legendary and proceed to beat team's ass with it" stuff... except that by catching the legendary, you threw the natural balance out of whack, and you have to catch the other two members of the trio and take them to a certain place to restore it.

[[WMG: There will be a Pokemon game whose story isn't centered around the bad guys' evil plots or the legendary Pokemon, but instead is based around the main character's past.]]
The MC will have a dark past, which they either don't know about or they just want to forget.

[[WMG: Instead of a single mom, the PC of Gen VI will have a single dad.]]
Single dads need love, too.

[[WMG: A future Pokemon game will take place in the Poke-past.]]
That is, before the invention of the Pokeball, Pokemarts, etc. Traps will be used to capture Pokemon, your team will have to follow you on a leash instead of in a Pokeball (thus, it will be smaller), Pokemon Gyms will just be places to train your Pokemon, Pokemon Centers will simply be places to recuperate and apply first-aid, and fossils will just be fancy rocks. In addition, there will be loads of {{Mythology Gag}}s calling back to Sinnoh myths, such as the legendary man with his sword, people taking Pokemon as wives, etc.
* That sounds like a neat spin-off...

[[WMG: Going further, a game that takes place in prehistoric times will be made.]]
All of the fossil Pokémon from the other games will be ComMons. Without Pokeballs or Capture Stylers, Trainers would have to either invoke DefeatMeansFriendship or use Apricorns hit several times with a stick. May not be possible due to the fact that humans are a recent species on the Pokemon World by millions of years, just like in the real world... time travellers, maybe?
* You could play as Mew, sent by the aliens that incubated Arceus's egg in an artificial universe to study the surprising developments. It could be like Dragon Quest or similar to the Mystery Dungeons games. The new(old) Pokemon can show up in the wild during an event to get a time traveling event only Pokemon like Celebi for those who want to use them in the main series.
* Or it may be an adaptation of a flood myth : you need to capture one female Pokemon for every evolutionary line and one male for every group egg. Which means the requirements would still be huge, even when dropping "modern" Pokemon that didn't exist in antiquity (Porygon, Mewtwo, etc...), many Water-types, some legendaries and even some Flying-types.

[[WMG: Gen VI will have two new regions]]
A version will start in one, B version will start in the other. My guess would be the UK and France.
* Well, well. The region shown in the trailer for Pokemon X and Y appears to be Pokéfrance, as confirmed, and there are some parts in the trailer that appear to be UK style. Your guess is actually quite plausible.

* To expand, just using the UK:
** ''The Region Itself.'' Both regions are attached, border to border as a united country. Of course this area is based on the United Kingdom. The one on the left is Poke-Ireland, also known as Oirie. This region's flag promintently features this games color and therfore title, Crimson. On the right is Scotland, known as Screo. This region's flag is covered in the color Navy. Both regions share a fair amount of Pokemon, but there are still exclusives. The landscape however is far different. Oirie is fairly mountainous. Screo has a whole lot of rolling plains. Also, the ninth gym and Elite Four are in a small third region called Noble, based on both Britain and Wales. It appears more prominently in the third game, Violet.
** ''Gyms And Elite Four.'' There are nine gyms instead of eight, the ninth being the exact same in both and being on the Oirie/Screo border, with the other sixteen being version exclusives in each region: Flying and Ground, Normal and Ghost, Grass and Poison, Electric and Water, Fire and Ice, Rock and Bug, Psychic and Dark, and Fighting and Steel. As this is the United Kingdom, the final type is obviously Dragon and each member of the Elite Four a Dragon-type. The Elite Four will be knights as well, at least with the titles of Sir or Dame. In the third version, your Pokedex acts as a passport, and you go through all seventeen Gyms with all the Pokemon available. You recieve your Pokedex in Noble, as you yourself have noble blood, and are flown to the start city in Screo where you get your first Pokemon and Pokeballs, with your two triplet siblings in competition, as the journey is a right of passage.
** ''Starters.'' This time around, every starter has a secondary type as with Gen IV, though from the start. Each is based on an animal kept as a pet: a Fire/Dark type based on a black cat, a Water/Ice type based on a combination of a beagle and a Klee Klai, and a Grass/Flying type based on a parrot.
** One question-what would be the villain team? Would it they be representative of the War of the Roses?
* Most of your theory is Jossed with only 1 trailer for the new Pokemon X and Y. It's based on France (it was confirmed by an official) the starters all only have one type, and the Grass type (Chespin) is a chesnut, hedgehog, and racoon, the Fire type (Fennekin) seems to be a fennec fox, and the Water type (Froakie) is a frog. 5-6 areas shown in the trailer are gyms and Elite 4 rooms and none of them seem to have any relation to knights, the names of the games (as stated above) are Pokemon X and Y, and there is a Fire type Elite 4 room.

[[WMG: The next Pokemon game will take place in a dystopian future.]]
Trainers with mastery over legendary Pokemon form a union and take over the governments of all known states. The story will follow the Trainer after he or she befriends a wild Pokemon in a cell who is selected by an early decision. The final boss will have an Azelf, and Gym Leaders will be replaced by members of the union.
* [[VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeonExplorers We've seen what happens with no humans around to keep a check on evil Pokemon.]] What we haven't seen is why the humans disappeared.
* Nope. With Pokemon X and Y, PokeFrance.

[[WMG: Alternatively, it's a BadFuture.]]
Essentially, it's what happens if you don't stop Team Plasma. Essentially, it ends with [[spoiler:Ghetsis]] taking over Unova, and allying with Team Cipher. It will obviously be the darkest game in the series, considering how it's the two worst monsters in the series.
* Wrong. The trailer for Pokemon X and Y is in a fun, happy France setting with a bit of the rest of the UK thrown in.

[[WMG: Also alternatively, it's a future where Pokemon have become obsolete.]]
Pokemon have become a thing of the past thanks to technological advances, and now exist all by themselves in the habitats that are left after massive deforestation. However, a new crime syndicate has popped up, and humanity realizes that the only way to fight them is by using Pokemon once more. [[ChildSoldiers It is up to our intrepid hero to resolve this conflict and reconnect humans and Pokemon.]] Somehow.
* Nope. I'm on a Jossing spree on this page.

[[WMG: A Pokemon will be the BigBad.]]
It would be interesting.

[[WMG: The protagonist will not be a native to the region]]
As an extension of the above AnotherSideAnotherStory suggestion, the protagonist of each game will arrive in the region by ship, in Vermillion in one game and Olivine in the other. The starter (and therefore the protagonists) will come from either a region introduced in another game in the generation, or a completely offscreen region.
* With Pokemon X and Y's trailer, there's a glitch. The protagonist has glasses, then while swinging on the vine they're still floating in midair. This means the glasses are detachable. The protagonist is also shown wearing a different outfit in one scene. IF there is customization, it would make sense for teh hero coming from somewhere else, as you can probably change your hair colour, facial features, and skin tone at the start of the game. Skin tone and facial features would probably only be chosen once at the beginning of the game as you can't change those without extreme tanning and facial surgery, but hair dye is plausible.

[[WMG: There will be a post-apocalyptic Pokemon game]]
[[spoiler:And the stinger would be that the [[NiceJobBreakingItHero main hero]] caused it.]]
* Pokemon Dungeon is implied to be this.

[[WMG: There will be a TrueFinalBoss battle (much like Red and Cynthia) against someone who is completely unknown.]]
Their sprite shows them wearing a mask and hood to conceal their identity, and when you defeat them, they disappear without a trace and never return. They aren't even referenced anywhere in the game.

[[WMG: There will be a MirrorMatch battle]]
And I'm not talking about like the one in ''Colosseum'', I'm talking about the fake being an ''exact'' mirror of you. All of their Pokemon are identical to yours, the Pokemon's levels, stats, moves, and hold items are identical to yours, and they even have the exact same type and quantity of items that you do.
* And it'll be Ditto as the trainer.

[[WMG: Generation VI will be the modern counterpart to the Gold/Silver games.]]
That is, it'll be the Johto to Unova's Kanto. Here are some ideas:
* The region will be based off the state of New Jersey. It's the closest state to New Jersey, so it'll fit geographically.
* Much like Team Rocket in Johto, the bad guys will be remnants of Team Plasma. They'll be led by three of the six Sages, specifically the ones that knew the truth about Ghetsis. This time, you'll actually be able to fight them. Each Sages' Pokemon will be color coded(as areference to their names): Zinzolin will use purple/pink Pokemon(violet), Gorm will use blue Pokemon and Giallo will use yellow Pokemon
* Ghetsis will appear, as we'll find out what happened to him. He'll be reasonably insane, and be even darker and crueler than before. After some time, he'll have discovered the power of [[PhysicalGod the orbs]], and believes that you are the Unova player character. Before you defeat him, he'll lunge out and attack you. While knocked out, N will appear and confront Ghetsis(you get to control N). Finally, he'll have vengeance on [[AbusiveParents Ghetsis.]]
* The Champion could be N!
* And the new region will have The Village Of Dragons. It was mentioned in the Memory Link the Village resides outside of Unova and could be the gateway to said region.
* The new region's on the 3DS, which means more room for a longer and deeper storyline.

[[WMG: There will be a Pokemon game whose protagonist is an AntiHero.]]
Albeit [[DarkerAndEdgier darker]] than Wes. I was thinking something along the lines of Batman, perhaps (main hero locks a lackey in a cage with a rampant Pokemon until he reveals what needs to be known?)

[[WMG: There will be a Pokemon game with a Stinger like no other.]]
The game goes on like usual, beating gym leaders, the villainous teams, winning the Pokemon League, etc., etc. However, after the credits are done rolling, [[spoiler: we are treated to a scene of the main character holding the MacGuffin, [[SuddenlyVoiced monologuing]] about what had happened during the game and mentions having [[EvilAllAlong future]] [[HiddenDepths plans]] [[PlayerPunch for]] the MacGuffin]].
[[WMG: There will be a Pokémon game where you will have a Double Battle against Arceus and the original tao dragon]]
The reason is that the BigBad went too far and the entire universe is... well, it would be friggin dead if not your [[OlympusMons awesome Pokémon]]. Of course, to make it challenging, they would have 31 [=IVs=] in everything, and Poké Balls wouldn't be usable at all. The music would be a mix of Arceus theme with Black/White Kyurem theme. They would be at Lv. 65 or something, and they would serve as Final Boss... and to make it even harder, your mons would be around Lv. 58, averagely with a full party. Yeah, it's hard, but so was rival in Black 2 and White 2 - I used up some Revives on that post-Champion team, despite being sure it wouldn't be that hard.

Post-game, Kyurem would be at friggin Lv. 80, Arceus at 86 or something... but Arceus would have some extra requirements - it's an event Pokémon for a reason!
Oh, and I could go further with Pokémon locations... but it would be too big.

[[WMG: There will be a player character who turns out to be worse than the villainous team they were trying to stop.]]

[[WMG: In Gen VI/VII, there will not be a Sinnoh remake, but a Sinnoh sequel.]]
And instead of having one of the Creation Trio, it'll feature Arceus itself.

[[WMG: Youngster Joey will be the champion in a future gen.]]

[[WMG: A future set of Gym Leaders and Elite Four will be based on the Twelve Olympians.]]
Ideally used in a Greek/Balkan/eastern Mediterranean setting, the eight Gym Leaders will be based on "weaker" Olympian gods, the Elite Four on some of the most powerful, and the Champion on Hercules. Basic ideas follow:
* Gym Leaders (in no particular order):
** Dionysus: Poison-type (because alcohol can be dangerous in excess), largely featuring newly-introduced Water/Poison and Grass/Poison types along the lines of liquid-based creatures and grape plants, respectively
** Hermes: Flying-type (based on the winged helmet and sandals), specializing very much in speed and evasion, he would likely be a very early Gym Leader and be considered ThatOneBoss at the time because of that
** Ares: Fighting-type (for obvious reasons), could perhaps utilized Fighting/Steel types based on soldiers from Antiquity, like hoplites
** Aphrodite: Fairy-type (for less-than-obvious-but-still-rather-apparent reasons), of course all of her Pokemon would be female and know Attract, they could also conceivably include Water-types such as Alomomola
** Apollo: Fire-type (because of association with the sun), he would likely have a lot of Fire/Flying types and moves which restore health
** Hephaestus: Steel-type (for obvious reasons), several of them would likely be Fire/Steel types and they would have very high defenses, even for Steel-types
** Artemis: Grass-type (based on associations with the forest), specializing in speed much like "Hermes" and largely lacking in close-quarters attacks, they would also all be female, be immune to Attract, and include some of the Sawsbuck evolutionary line
** Athena: Psychic-type (because of associations with intelligence and wisdom), would feature much more rounded characteristics like equally powerful offensive and defensive capabilities, and one of them HAS to be owl-like
* Elite Four:
** Hera: Normal-type (because of more civic associations than the others), would also feature all-female Pokemon, but they would be monstrous beasts rather than ideally more pleasing-to-the-eye ones that "Artemis" and "Aphrodite" would have, and ideally dual-types to give her team more advantages against a wider variety of types
** Hades: Ghost-type (for obvious reasons), featuring moves more closely associated with death than some other Ghost-type moves (like Perish Song) coupled with Mean Look and similar moves or abilities, or he could be a dual Ghost/Dark trainer with some newly-introduced Pokemon based on mythical creatures like the Minotaur
** Poseidon: Water-type (for obvious reasons), would likely include seahorse-like Pokemon, and all of them would have very powerful Ground-type moves where applicabe
** Zeus: Electric-type (for even more obvious reasons), would have plenty of Electric/Flying types with weather-based attacks and the greatest offensive capability of any trainer up to this point, and some of his team would probably know Attract
* Champion:
** Hercules: he would be a multi-type trainer, though all of his Pokemon would be based on the Twelve Labors, including a lion, a hydra, a boar, a metallic bird, a killer horse, and a three-headed dog.

[[WMG: The plots of fighting the local Evil Team and the typical Pokemon Journey will echo each other.]]
A team, examining how other teams had failed in the past, find that the only people to stand up to and defeat them were youths [[KidHero around the 10-15 year age range]] with strong Pokémon. Their best bet, they gather, is to fight fire with fire; they gather children from around the region to better disguise themselves from the public eye, and train these children to be strong. These children would be scattered along the routes to gather information on the protagonist by going toe-to-toe with them upon recognition. The leader, therefore, is the strongest of these children, echoing someone of the protagonist's caliber.
Your fight with the team echoes how a typical journey is structured; you fight all the children in the region, eventually culminating in the top four members of the team (akin to battling the Elite Four). You end up defeating the Leader, but instead of the team disbanding, you decide to take over the team, instead using it to seek out and defeat other teams in different regions (akin to becoming Champion).

The third game of the series finds the next protagonist fighting the same team, [[MeetTheNewBoss having gone corrupt in their ways.]] Instead of seeking out teams that may prove a threat, they become Mccarthyist in nature, pursuing any and ''every'' person or organization and their pokémon that may prove a potential threat. They find and defeat the previous protagonist of the previous games (akin to facing Red in G/S/C), thoroughly disbanding the team after the previous protagonist [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone realizes their mistake.]]

[[WMG: Someone will have already stolen the Legendary.]]
You will arrive at the usual place you would see the Legendary, like maybe an altar or a secluded area. You'd be all hung-ho to catch it, pokeballs at the ready and Pokemon leveled, and... it won't be there. Of course, you'd chase down the Evil Team to see what they've done with it, but [[NotMeThisTime they'd be just as surprised as you are.]] A portion of the game will be dedicated to finding out who stole the Legendary and stopping whatever plan ''they'' have.

[[WMG: The professor, champion, and villainous team's leader will be one and the same in a future game.]]
Because that would be a pretty hard-to-see-coming plot twist. Also, your rival will be implied to be a member of the villainous team, but will actually be working to take them down.

[[WMG: A future Elite Four member or Champion will be a little girl.]]
Now, I don't mean as young as trainers from the Preschooler class, but maybe around Bonnie's age (who I think is several years younger than the protagonists). While the games apparently don't have restrictions on owning Pokemon based on age (the fact that there even is a Preschooler class is evidence of that), however that still begs the question of how she could train her Pokemon up so strong.

In the games, it tends to act like the protagonist is some kind of amazing prodigy at training - it just a few hours or days, he can train his Pokemon up from the beginning to match trainers who've been training theirs for years.

They could also do this with this E4 member (which, would essentially mean ignore the fact that it's weird), but I think it would be far more interesting to have her be a battling prodigy instead. Like, she doesn't own any of her own Pokemon. She just borrows them from other people - maybe her family, or maybe the other Elite Four members - and battles with them because she's an amazing battler. Sort of like Emerald from Pokemon special.

[[WMG: There will be a Pokemon plot with a GreenAesop.]]
It will take place in a region with many islands, and each island, even the small ones, have Pokemon exclusive to them. This makes them rarer, but also more susceptible to extinction. The villain group would either be working for a corporation that wants environmental protection laws removed, or a group obsessed with capturing rare and endangered Pokemon. They seek the legendaries of the series.


[[folder:Future Trainer Class ideas]]

[[WMG: A Greaser]]
Mainly uses ruffian pokemon such as Scraggy and Scrafty, among others.
* Variations:
** Gangster: Based on mafia types from 1920's - 40's, who employ tough looking and intimidating Pokemon, such as Nidoking and Steelix, and/or Pokemon with primarily beam and/or Special attacks, such as Octillery and Clauncher.
** Gangsta: Based on modern day street punks and who use Pokemon whom as usually jerks and/or tough guys, like Pangoro, Scrafty, and Purugly, and/or can figure into rap and urban culture, like Smeargle (graffiti), Furfrou (representing gang colors), and Ludicolo (music and dancing).
[[WMG: Valedictorian]]
Uses a variety of Pokemon, most of them being fully evolved. Likely won't appear until later in the game, like after the 6th gym badge.
[[WMG: Soldier]]
We have Lt. Surge, so this shouldn't be too much of a stretch. May largely use Fighting, Electric, and Steel types, with a few Fire types.
[[WMG: Diver]]
Obviously uses Water types, and perhaps could be the only trainer class you can find underwater.
[[WMG: Farmer]]
Primarily uses Grass and Ground type Pokemon.
[[WMG: Knight]]
Probably would specialize in Steel and Dragon types, and could work nicely in a region based on the British Isles.
[[WMG: Hipster]]
For the lulz. Would use entirely 1st gen Pokemon and would only be fightable post-game.
[[WMG: Hobo]]
Might be found in areas like the streets of Castelia city. Probably would have a team mostly consisting of Pokemon obtainable early in the game, especially rodent-based Pokemon or Poison types.
[[WMG: Flyer]]
To go with the [=WMG=] below about an air route, there will be traner class found only on that route who uses primarily Flying-type Pokemon.
[[WMG: Archeologist]]
Only uses Pokemon that are revived from fossiles (Kabuto, Cranidos, Amaura, etc.)
[[WMG: Viking]]
Uses mostly Ice-types and Pokémon based on Myth/NorseMythology, like Sawsbuck, as well as some Water and Fighting Pokémon.
[[WMG: Scoutmaster/Denmother]]
Serves as a higher-level counterpart to the Camper class. Mostly found in the woodland areas of a region, but might be seen in towns. If horde battling is allowed for normal classes in later generations, the scoutmaster could be able to fight with their campers.
[[WMG: Double Battle Pairings]]
* Love Unbound: Rich Boy and Punk Girl
* Swimmer Outing: Swimmer and Tuber, either gender for both
* Ace Ranger: Ace Trainer and Pokemon Ranger
* Land and Sea: Hiker and Fisherman
* Fringe Science: Science based trainer (Scientist, Super Nerd, etc.) and Supernatural based trainer (Psychic, Hex Maniac, etc.)


[[folder: Future game mechanic ideas]]

[[WMG: Add a third element officially]]
While new Pokemon will be created, some of the older ones will be retconned.
* Charizard: Fire, Flying, and Dragon
* Scizor: Bug, Steel, and Flying
* Beedrill: Bug, Poison, and Flying etc.
** They actually do have this in a limited capacity in Generation VI, in that the moves Trick-or-Treat and Forest's Curse ''add'' the Ghost-type and Grass-type, respectively, to the target rather than overwriting their types like other type-changing moves, even if the target is already a dual-type.

[[WMG: Eventually, you will be able to breed hybrid Pokemon that have physical traits of both parents.]]
But you will only be able to breed specific hybrids based on species and type; also, the resulting offspring does not evolve and will be sterile.
* Or, breeding two Pokemon will get you an already existing species, IE: Rhyhorn and Grimer will get Nidoran.

[[WMG: Legendary Pokemon will finally be given egg groups, but they will always produce a Pokemon of the spouse's species.]]
Just as a child Pokemon might receive its father's moves, so too will the resulting [[FanNickname Demilegend]] recieve its legendary parent's moves. So, instead of a baby Lugia, you could get a [[DiscOneNuke Pidgey that knows Aeroblast]].
** I noticed that the text above links to the page "Disc one nuke." This is not true, because you'd have to obtain Lugia first in order to breed it. And even if you'd gotten the Lugia from a trade, Lugia himself would probably be quite a bit more gamebreaking that Aeroblast Pidgey.
*** Of course, OR/AS's new mechanic allows you to catch wild Pokémon with Egg Moves. Presumably this would allow previously Signature Moves to be added to Egg Move lists, so...
* [[GameBreaker What if you breed a Groudon with a Mewtwo?]]
** Unfortunately, those two probably wouldn't be of the same egg group. Or maybe Legendary Pokemon will just be unable to breed with each other.
* [[PoorMansSubstitute They'll probably just make jokes like Phione if you try to breed one.]]
* Alternatively, since this would more or less require legendaries to finally receive genders, make all legendaries either AlwaysMale or AlwaysFemale. (From a GameplayAndStoryIntegration standpoint, this is also necessary because the Legendary Pokémon are supposedly unique.) The AlwaysFemale ones would still be unable to breed, while the male ones (aside from Manaphy) would merely be unable to breed with Ditto (or would get their own "jokes" similar to Phione). Some thoughts on how this would work:
** AlwaysMale:
*** Articuno
*** Zapdos
*** Moltres
*** [[OppositeSexClone Mewtwo]]
*** Raikou
*** Entei
*** Suicune
*** Lugia
*** Ho-oh
*** [[ForegoneConclusion Latios]]
*** Kyogre
*** Groudon
*** Rayquaza
*** Jirachi
*** Dialga
*** Palkia
*** Giratina
*** Phione
*** Manaphy
*** Darkrai
*** Victini
*** Cobalion
*** Terrakion
*** Virizion
*** [[ForegoneConclusion Tornadus]]
*** [[ForegoneConclusion Thundurus]]
*** Zekrom
*** [[ForegoneConclusion Landorus]]
*** Keldeo
*** Yveltal
** AlwaysFemale:
*** Mew
*** Celebi
*** [[ForegoneConclusion Latias]]
*** Uxie
*** Mesprit
*** Azelf
*** [[ForegoneConclusion Cresselia]]
*** Shaymin
*** Reshiram (to continue the "yin-yang" theme, it has to be the opposite gender of Zekrom. Alternatively, they could subvert expectations and make Zekrom the female.)
*** Meloetta
*** Xerneas
** Still [[NoBiologicalSex genderless]] (and therefore still unable to breed)
*** Regirock
*** Regice
*** Registeel
*** Deoxys
*** Regigigas
*** '''[[{{God}} Arceus]]'''
*** Kyurem (it's an empty husk. Black Kyurem and White Kyurem would take on the genders of their other halves; the Original Dragon, if it ever comes around, would be genderless as well under this set-up.
*** Genesect
*** Zygarde (because there is no Z-chromosome)
*** Diancie (despite its feminine appearance; this is largely because Carbink is genderless)
*** Hoopa
** Downgraded to pseudolegendary and given pre-evolutions so as to prevent you from hatching an egg with a 600 BST
*** Heatran (already has a 50-50 gender split and doesn't seem to tie in with any other legendaries. Again, if legendary Pokémon are one-of-a-kind, how is it even possible to get male Heatran ''and'' female Heatran?)

[[WMG: Maybe there will be a mechanic for taking some people or three for you to travel with, just like in the anime]]
* Or maybe more than six Pokemon in your party? Like maybe ten tops?

[[WMG: Grunts will sometimes fight you five-on-one (AKA Trainer Horde Battles)]]
* Think about it, we know that these guys love to play dirty with their Pokémon, so why not make grunts occasionally fight you in hordes? (Of course, with very, very weak Pokémon so that you'll be able to take all five on without it becoming a CurbStompBattle.) This idea arose from the last batch of [[EliteMooks admins]] you had to fight before facing Xerneas/Yveltal, in which Game Freak [[WhatCouldHaveBeen had the perfect opportunity to create an interesting pre-climax battle had they only added one more admin.]]
** Confirmed by Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire

[[WMG: You'll be able to fight alongside your Pokemon someday.]]
The mechanic will probably be much simpler than regular Pokemon battles (e.g. 50% chance of a knock-out with a normal hit), but it will add a new dimension and challenge to battles.

[[WMG: Pokemarts will disappear entirely]]
Gen V relegated Pokemarts to the Pokemon Centres. Gen VI will go that final step further: You will be able to shop from any PC. Seriously, why does a world that has perfected "store physical items and even living things as data and put them on a server for access anywhere with a PC+internet connection" not used this tech advance for instant shipping? Why would ''anyone'' pay to rent/own the land, rent/build/convert a building, and pay staff for a physical Pokemart to reach a target buyer of a single town when you can, when for what ''must'' be a fraction of the cost (especially considering the Pokemon Storage System is free), one could reach the entire world (or anyone you are willing to process the money of, which isn't an issue given that Pokemon has global currency) with no inconvenience to the customer or you (shipping times+costs are gone under such a system, removing a physical store's main advantage over an online retailer), and reach the ''entire world'' as potential customers.
** Possible snag: If the Pokemon world's governments realized the economy would crash if there weren't physical Pokemarts, they may have banned online marketing.

[[WMG: Here's some (im)possible future game mechanics.]]
* Spray-type medicine like Potions will be applied manually by touching the Pokemon.
* You will be able to move in eight directions, instead of just four.
** Kind of likely, seeing as Pokemon is pretty much the only RPG that hasn't caught on to this trend yet.
*** This idea is already in Pokemon Ranger, but that's a spin off.
*** Well, this one's confirmed at least.
* You can access the menu without pressing X. It even works when you're walking. Whatever replaces the Poketch only fills half of the screen.
** You mean like in Heart Gold and Soul Silver? Yeah, I liked the interface there too.
* The game actually shows the Pokemon attacking, rather than just a green sword floating around pretending to be the other guy wielding a leaf as a weapon.
** Maybe attack poses along with attack effects?
*** That would probably kill the graphic design team. Be grateful we got idle animations, it must have taken a Herculean effort to implement them for every single Pokemon, implementing an animation for every single ''move'' of every single Pokemon would just be impossible.
**** Yeah, but Stadium partially did this - Hydro Pump for Blastoise is a ''pair'' of water "bullets" shot from its cannons, while Drowzee ([[AIRoulette Metronome]]) happens to shot one.
***** Confirmed, in the trailer for Pokemon X and Y, the game is on the 3DS and Pokemon actually attack. And actually REACT to attacks, like flinching or sleeping, instead of just closing their eyes. Well, the sleeping part isn't confirmed, but still.
* Some known moves will be [=HMs=]. That strange looking wall? Dig. Crossing gate in your way? Brick Break.
** The strange looking wall can be crossed with Rock Climb.
* Provided the 3DS has Mii's, you can make your own character instead of using May or Dawn or Hilda.
** Black and White(and Battle Revolution) already let you alter you appearance in multiplayer, probably just go deeper into that.
*** The main series is on the 3DS now, so this is possible.
*** There's a limited customization system in the game.
* Three words: Multiple save files.
** But then what motivation would we have to [[OneGameForThePriceOfTwo buy the other version]]?
*** Multiple Save Files would not override Version Exclusives, the backbone of [=OGftPoT=]. All it would do is not require '''every''' kid in the family to have their own cart.
** More realistically, NewGamePlus.
*** Wouldn't this destroy the postgame content?
* Two words: Customizable avatars.
** This is actually very likely, since the main series is on the 3DS now and the player in the trailer looks suspiciously like a Mii.
*** Confirmed.
* Four-Trainer Battles using the Triple Battle Rules; Your Left/Right Pokemon can only attack the closest Pokemon to your left/right (with SplashDamage going to the adjacent Pokemon for the same trainer), while your Center Pokemon can only attack the Pokemon directly across from you (with SplashDamage hitting your cross opponent's entire team).
[[WMG: [=HMs=] will be able to be used without teaching them to something.]]
You will only need to have the HM and a Pokemon that ''could'' learn the move to use it.

[[WMG: [=HMs=] will disappear entirely/become [=TMs=].]]
Basically, while Cut, Strength, and all the other former HM moves will still be usable in battle, the Pokemon will not have to ''know'' the moves to clear obstacles in the over-world. Instead, they will exist as skills that don't take up a moveslot. Additionally, many of them will be tweaked to allow a wider range of Pokemon to use them (at least outside of battle).
* Cut will be changed to the ability to clear trees and small obstacles. This will allow Flying types without claws to destroy them with gusts of wind, Fire types to simply burn them away, etc.
* Fly will basically stay the same, as will Dive.
* Surf will stay largely the same, but Flying and Psychic types will also be able to learn it.
* The overworld effects of Strength, Rock Smash, and Rock Climb will be combined.
* Waterfall, much like Surf, will be learnable by Flying and Psychic types.
* Flash, Whirlpool, and Defog will no longer exist.

[[WMG: [=HMs=] will be replaced with field moves.]]
Related to the above WMG, HM moves will be turned into [=TMs=] and serve simply as in-battle techniques. In their place, each Pokemon will get a single intrinistic field move which it can use outside of battle. For instance, any Water type with the ability to carry a human would get access to Surf, Flying types would get Fly, and so on. Of course, using these moves may still require you to defeat certain Gym Leaders to learn how to use them, to avoid sequence breaking.

This would have the benefit of avoiding the necessity of "HM slave" Pokemon used solely to traverse the environment, since all Pokemon would now have access to these moves without having to sacrifice their regular move pool.

This may also allow for a few new field moves, such as a Ride ability that lets you ride your Pokemon for an increase in walking speed and/or a reduced random encounter rate.

[[WMG: The Poison status effect will gain a stat-reduction.]]
Specifically, to make it a more complete counterpart to Burn, it will sharply reduce Special Attack. Perhaps Badly Poisoned will kill both Attack ''and'' Special Attack.
* This would probably make Burn redundant though.

[[WMG: The party size and/or moveset size will increase.]]
While playing Black & White, whose Pokemon have terrible type coverage, I had a hard time creating a balanced team. Even if every single Pokemon on your team is dual-typed, you can only have twelve of the seventeen types at once. It's also quite ridiculous that there are over 600 Pokemon right now, but we can only use six at once, further perpetuating the issue that 70% or so of Pokemon are filler that no one uses. Perhaps increasing the party size to 8 or 10 would mitigate these problems. Even then, though, the absurdly small moveset is highly cumbersome -- I think that one reason why status effect moves tend to be underused is that there's just no room for them. Pokemon is really shooting itself in the foot in terms of strategic potential due to the fact that it's so hard to tweak your Pokemon's movesets. Obviously, though, running out of PP would never be an issue if a Pokemon could keep every single move it learns, but I think it would be nice if, maybe, you could only use four moves at once, but could freely switch out which ones to use from the full list? That would be an improvement, at least.

[[WMG:Possible new abilities...]]
* Something similar to Moxie that slightly increases a Pokemon's health every time it faints an opponent. Maybe called "Blood Drinker" or something, unless that name's too dark for a kid's game. Could potentially be a GameBreaker, though -- maybe as a held item?
* Counterparts to Scrappy for other types. Could get into GameBreaker territory for some, though (Scrappy already verges on it).
** Dissolving Acid for Steel-type immunity? I mean, c'mon. Acid has no effect whatsoever on Steel-type, while real-life acid is nothing like that.
* An ability that lets a fainted Pokemon come back with half its health in, say, three turns. GameBreaker? Or just awesome?
[[WMG:They will implement a new battle system where the battles will more closely reflect the anime]]
The directional buttons can be used to move the pokemon, the letter/picture buttons can be used to activate the attacks, and will lead to a possibly more exciting way to play the game. To exchange pokemon, you press the L or R button. The developers might want to experiment with this.

[[WMG: After throwing 9 or 10 balls at a Pokemon, you will have the option to pray to Arceus before/while/after throwing the next]]
Because you're already doing it in real life, anyway. You know you're already about to throw your DS when Suicune rejects your 6th ball, yelling "Which ball do you want from me!?" like a maniac. [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial Not that I've ever done that.]] May or may not include an option to flip off Pokemon in question if you chose to run.

[[WMG: There will be a game with a morality system, a la inFamous and Knights of the Old Republic.]]

[[WMG: Contests (if they will still exist) will be totally revamped, being more akin to the one you see in animé - which are WAY more complicated, but also more spectacular]]

[[WMG: Expanding the 2v2/3v3 battle move combos beyond the pledge moves]]
Probably likely if not done for the remainder of gen V then Gen VI will do this.

Probable combos likely:

Ash's [[AssPull Thunder Armor]] combo from the gym battle vs Tate and Liza in the anime if only for a nod to the non game roots of the mechanic.

Thunder + Stone Edge: Creates a Spire that hits the entire field with Thunder's full power on all foes.

* Flamethrower + Hurricane: Creates a fire tornado that traps everyone on the field while doing damage.
* Dragon Tail + Gyro Ball: Knocks the foe off the field while doing massive damage.

[[WMG: There will eventually be a way to evolve Pokemon earlier than the level it supposed it evolve at.]]
And all of the sudden, a Lv.52 Hydreigon becomes legit.

[[WMG: There will be an item to decrease the Pokemon's level.]]
Though it might have been redundant.
* Coming off from this:

[[WMG: You will be able to un-evolve Pokemon, possibly through level reduction.]]
This way, you can learn skills that you missed, and the Pokemon will still attempt to evolve every level.

[[WMG: Fly will be used to access a new type of route]]
We have land routes and we have sea routes. But we don't have any in the air. Fly will be used to access this and players can move around the route on their pokemon much like surfing. Also everywhere is a possible spot to encounter Pokemon except for a few safe zones much like the sea routes. Players will encounter several pokemon that are either Flying (Of course), Bug (I saw somewhere that some insects can go to very high altitudes), Water (That's what clouds are made of), Electric (Lightning storms) and Ice (Hail storms). This could be the spot where we can ''FINALLY'' get a pure Flying-type that's not a legendary Pokemon.
* Crashing into Skyla's plane would be how Eevee evolves into Sylveon.
* This theory is semi-confirmed by OR/AS, as you can indeed encounter Pokémon while Soaring on your Mega Lati.

[[WMG: There will be a Pokemon game that has you traversing through both the normal world and the reverse world as a normal gameplay mechanic.]]
Whether it be to solve puzzles or bypass areas that are normally blocked, it would make for an interesting experience. It could either be done with special portals found around the game world, or having the character switch between worlds at will. Think of it like Dark Aether from [[MetroidPrime Metroid Prime 2]], only without the poisonous atmosphere.

[[WMG: A future game will introduce customizable trainers.]]
The customization may start out on a small level, like simply being able to choose the color of the trainer's outfit. But over time, new games will feature more and more options like different outfits, hairstyles, and facial features.
** Confirmed.

[[WMG: Your pokemon will eventually be able to interact with each other, perhaps through an extension of Poke-Amie.]]
If they interact enough, they will form a friendship (and perhaps a rivalry!) which will affect their performance if they fight side by side in a Double Battle. For example, taking an attack for its partner if it would KO them or cheering them on to power their attack up.

[[WMG: A "thief ball" item will be made.]]
It would allow the player to capture any Pokemon of another trainer's without fail. Like the Master Ball, it would be extremely rare.

[[WMG: The "ridable Pokemon" thing will be expanded on in future games.]]
X & Y has the feature but it's pretty limited. Future games might expand on it. For instance, being able to ride certain types of Pokemon at any time as long as they're in your party. Different ridable Pokemon would have different abilities and benefits. For instance, any ridable water Pokemon would be able to cross the water without knowing Surf, or go up waterfalls or dive without knowing those respective [=HMs=]. (though certain water Pokemon would be slow on land, or wouldn't be able to move on land at all) Some Pokemon would move very fast, some could jump over certain obstacles like cliffs. Flying Pokemon might be able to glide short distances, which would allow the player to cross gaps and go over other obstacles. Certain legendary Pokemon could be ridden and have abilities exclusive to them. Pokemon that can be ridden could include:

Charizard, Blastoise, and Venusaur
Ponyta and Rapidash
Doduo and Dodrio
Skiddo and Gogoat

[[WMG: Following Pokemon will return and stay.]]

[[WMG: Diving will return as it was in Ruby and Sapphire.]]
The player can stay underwater for an unlimited amount of time and go through seaweed to find Pokemon, as well as fish. There would be a lot of new stuff to explore. This would show up on the next 3DS game in the main series because underwater stuff looks cool in 3D.

[[WMG: The Nintendo 3DS eShop will eventually have the older Pokemon games available to download.]]
And Pokemon captured in those games could be transferred to the current generation 3DS one.
* Obviously this wouldn't work with the first two Generations, because overhaul.
[[WMG: One day, the Orre will be properly recognized as "Met in Orre." rather "Met in a distant land."]]
C'mon! It was a distant land when the games were located in Japan-based places... and they're still that in Unova as far as I know. Why not do that one day? (Technically Gen 3 had "met in a trade" as far as I know, Gen IV made it bit better). [[spoiler: inb4 it was fixed in Gen V]]

[[WMG: There will someday be an Alien-type]]
And its weaknesses will be [[Film/{{Signs}} water and grass]].

[[WMG: Emma will replace Looker as a reoccuring NPC]]
Looker has appeared in several titles since ''Pokemon Platinum''. Emma will take his place, or maybe they'll both appear.

[[WMG: Stance Change will become a game mechanic for all Pokémon]]
GameFreak needs to continue updating the battle system to keep it fresh, but without completely revamping it and alienating old fans. Maybe not immediately following this generation, but one way to add to the system without changing too much would be to introduce Stance Changing, which was touched upon by Aegislash in Gen VI. Each turn you'll be able to switch Pokémon between Attack Stance, Neutral and Defense Stance.
* Attack Stance - slightly increases offensive power but lowers defensive stats and prevents use of non-damaging moves
* Neutral Stance - standard mode
* Defense Stance - slightly increases defensive power but prevents use of damaging moves
The stat bonuses would be enough to introduce new strategy options, but not significant enough to turn Pokémon upside-down.
* If we can add a Speed Stance,[[note]]Increases Speed and Evasion at the cost of Defense and possibly Attack and Accuracy, with Attack getting improved Accuracy and A&D getting reduced Evasion,[[/note]] then Deyoxs' Formes could be {{Retcon}}ned into Stances. Aegislash's speed stance would probably be the sword riding on the shield or something.[[note]]All values in the table below are relative to "Neutral". M-Hit covers attacks with multiple strikes per attack. Under Speed, ''if'' the attack hits, then the maximum number of strikes are inflicted.[[/note]]
||align=center border=1 width=50%
||Stance|| Atk/SA || Def/SD || Speed || Acc. || Evade || [[TheBerserker Taunt]] || M-Hit ||
||Attack|| Up || Down || Same || Up || Down || On || Same ||
||Defense|| Down || Up || Same || Same || Down || Reversed || N/A ||
||Speed|| Down || Down || Up || Down || Up || Off || Max ||

[[WMG: Multiplayer horde battles!]]
With battles against trainer hordes being introduced in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, it's an interesting idea to consider allowing players to be on the other side of the horde battle. Either it would be one player controlling the horde vs. another player controlling one Pokémon, or else there could even be a team of five players against one. Of course, like horde battles in the games, there would need to be a significant level cap on the team of 5 to keep things fair.

[[WMG: Flying Press was just the tip of the iceberg, so to speak.]]
There will be other dual-typed moves in the future. Possibly even retcons to existing moves. For example (keeping the "listed as one type and only can gain STAB off of that type):
* Blaze Kick, Fire Punch, Thunder Punch, Ice Punch, and Bullet Punch will all deal Fighting-type damage.
* Ice Burn, Scald[[spoiler: and Steam Eruption]], and Sky Attack will all deal Fire-type damage.
* Freeze Shock will deal Electric-type damage.
* Muddy Water will deal Ground-type damage.
* Twinneedle will deal Poison-type damage.
Of course, the problem with this is that whereas there is absolutely nothing that is weak to or resisted by both Fighting-types and Flying-types, and in fact many types take x1 damage from Flying Press due to being weak against one type but resistant to the other (Bug, Rock, Steel), some of these other type combos could easily allow ridiculous multipliers. For example, a Water/Ground Muddy Water would do x16 damage to Magcargo and a Steel/Fighting Bullet Punch would deal x16 damage to the Amaura line, while a Fire/Flying Sky Attack would deal x16 to all of the various Grass/Bug types and could actually reach x32 if Forest's Curse was used on Heracross or a hypothetical future Ice/Bug type. Works in the other direction, too--a Fire/Water Scald would only do x1/16 against a Water/Dragon type normally, and as such, would absolutely slaughter one in an Inverse Battle.

[[WMG: Egg moves will get expanded to some rather unexpected lengths.]]
* Theoretically, a lot of Pokémon need to be chain bred to get certain egg moves due to the various Pokémon that are members of multiple groups. But they have yet to give a Pokémon an egg move that cannot be learned by either level-up by any member of its egg group or anything that could chain into its egg group--which is to say, something that could ''only'' be passed on if Sketched by a male Smeargle. This despite Smeargle belonging to the largest Egg Group. To return to a WMG above, what if that Pidgey with Aeroblast ''was'' possible, but not because it could actually get it directly from Lugia; instead, it inherited it from a member of the Woobat line (along with Farfetch'd, the only lines that are in both the Field and Flying Egg Groups). Or a Whismur whose sound-based moves included ''Roar of Time'', Dialga's signature move. It would be nice if Game Freak were to reward this sort of ingenuity.

[[WMG:Other new moves]]
A physical move with 140 BP that lowers Attack by 2 stages after use. Most likely a Fighting-type move, because Fighting already has a number of moves that lower stats after use. Hey, Hyper Beam eventually got a physical clone, why not Overheat?

[[WMG:The League Rematch mechanic will be overhauled to resemble ''VideoGame/PunchOut's'' Title Defense Mode]]
When you go back to League HQ after finishing the game, the Gate Guards will recognize you and ask if you would like to face any Challengers. You'll face 5 randomly determined challengers per set with one set per day and Auto-Healing between Rounds.

And it won't just be the (former) Elite coming after your belt. Gym Leaders, Rivals, and important {{NPC}}s and even some {{Downloadable|Content}} characters would all appear. (International Cameos will not be part of this mechanic[[note]]except for cases justified by backstory, e.g. Lt. Surge in Unova, Valerie in Kanto/Johto[[/note]] and could still be challenged in separate exhibitions. Stored Friends would also be Exhibitions.)

If you win, you get a "salary"[[note]]which includes the wages for facing the 5 opponents plus a high-level item, possibly related to the final challenger[[/note]] and the right to do it all over again tomorrow. If you lose, you'll have to rechallenge the League to regain your title... with the Set of 5 you lost to being the New Elite Four and Champ.[[note]]in the set's sequence, so if you lost to someone early in the set, they would've lost to the trainer at the end anyway.[[/note]] You'd retain any experience earned win or lose; [[RageQuit turning the game off in the middle of the challenge]] would lock you out of the challenge for the rest of the day.

To {{Def|iedTrope}}y BagOfSpilling, each trainer's first appearance in an "Elite" slot (1-4) would be with their leads around the levels of the Original Elite 4 unless their last storyline battle had their leads at a higher level. If you face them as a "Champion" (last of the day), their levels increase by 5 with a potential moveset and item change. This form become their Elite form in subsequent circuits. This progression continues until the Lead is 79-83 (82-86 for original Elites and the Primay Rival), wherein the Elite and Champion forms become the same. In no case would a trainer be an "Elite" for a "Champion" whose "Level" was more than 2 levels below their's.

To allow you to train lower-levels, Gym Leaders who ''aren't'' part of the day's "circuit" (along with certain Elites) would allow you to challenge a "B" team if your Party's highest level is below the day's Elite Level.

[[folder:Future Spinoff Ideas]]
[[WMG: There will be a Pokemon FightingGame.]]
Pokemon in the style of StreetFighter, perhaps?
** [[http://pokesho.com/typewild/what.html Already been done]], although not by Nintendo.

[[WMG: There will be a Pokemon Zoo game.]]
Similar to VideoGame/ZooTycoon. Like the main Pokemon series, you have several areas you can go out to capture Pokemon. But instead of trying to be the best trainer, your goal is to capture Pokemon for your zoo. You build exhibits, with different Pokemon requiring different types of environments to be happy. Unhappy Pokemon result in low zoo attendance, which means less money to build new exhibits. Having lots of Pokemon and many different types of Pokemon increase your zoo's popularity, as will baby Pokemon, rare Pokemon, and legendary Pokemon. Throughout the game you will be required to do different challenges, like taking in abused Pokemon from bad zoos, trying to breed rare Pokemon, or nursing an injured or sick wild Pokemon before releasing it to the wild. Some challenges will be required to progress in the game while others will be optional. Challenge rewards include increased zoo attendance, access to new types of Pokemon in the wild as well as Pokemon for purchase, or even special one-time Pokemon.

[[WMG: There will be a spin-off game revolving around genetic engineering.]]
You work in a lab taking DNA from different Pokemon and putting them together to produce hybrids with different traits and such.

[[WMG: There will be a spin-off where you yourself are the Champion from the start, and then the entire formula of the Pokemon games gets {{Deconstructed}}]]
It sounds out there, but it'd be fun to start the game with all the O.P. Pokemon of which ever generation this spin off takes place in, and then you hear about a Team of miscreants making trouble. You, as the Champion, decide you could help the people of your region by doing something about them. Only to find out that they're too powerful and they, as per the usual tradition of the enemy teams, take your Pokemon. You have to start for, square one, and regain your Pokemon by catching new ones and making a whole new team while still retaining your title as Champion.
* The second ''Pokemon TGC'' already did this.

[[WMG: There will be an Action RPG spinoff, and it will be about Pokémon-themed [[MagicalGirlWarrior Magical Girls]]]]
Because I want to play the "WMG doesn't have to make sense" card. Also, there was a Shoujo romance manga about Pokémon, and this is more plausible.

[[WMG: There will be {{Enhanced Remake}}s of ''VideoGame/PokemonColosseum'' and/or ''VideoGame/PokemonXDGaleOfDarkness''. Or rather, sequels.]]
* [=XD002=] will be Yveltal, due to its physical resemblance to Lugia and its ability to inflict instant death on anyone and anything too close to it. Yveltal only does what it does because that's its job, but such a power seems too good for Cipher to pass up, which the player character eventually snags and catches. Meanwhile, in the other game, Xerneas has traveled to Orre to attempt to stop Yveltal and Cipher but cannot do it alone, letting itself be caught by the player character.
** Also, it'll have online Pokémon battling, a la ''Pokémon Battle Revolution'', only with an actual game attached to it.

[[folder:Miscellaneous WMG]]

[[WMG: There will be a CompilationRerelease.]]
That is to say, you can visit any region. Games like Pokemon Dash will be minigames.
Of course, you cannot bring your Mons from one region to another. The professor will live on a small island with one or two towns, one of them your hometown, and one of them used for the tutorial bit.

[[WMG: We will finally get that Pokemon MMO that we've been asking for.]]

[[WMG: The Pokemon games represent growing up.]]
See [[WMG/PokemonBlackAndWhite the corresponding WMG on this page for details.]] Let's just say in the sixth generation, things will be so complex story-wise that any and all previous knowledge will be useless.

[[WMG: When Pokemon comes to the 3DS, you will be able to save your diploma to an SD card to print out.]]
I know the Wii games can send pictures to the message board, then have them put on an SD card. I think the 3DS would as well.
* Pokemon X and Y say hi.

[[WMG: In a future game, completing the Pokédex will give more than a diploma]]
[[spoiler: You will also get to fight Professor Oak.]] ''That'' would be an epic reward.
* Semi-Jossed. In [[VideoGame/PokemonBlack2AndWhite2 Black 2 and White 2]], you get better thing a diploma, but it's not [[spoiler:fighting Professor Oak]]. Instead, for seeing the entire Unova Pokédex you get License, which [[spoiler:allows you to travel to place with some new Pokémon like Kecleon, Noctowl or Nuzleaf]], completing it gives you a Round Charm which [[spoiler:makes Pokémon Eggs appear more likely in Pokémon Day Care]], and completing the National Pokédex gives Shining Charm, which makes Shiny Pokémon more than '''three''' times likely in the wild (1 in 2370 be precise) and about 1 and 1/3 times as likely with Masuda Method (1 in 1024). Of course, these exclude event-only Pokémon. [[spoiler:Note that Zorua is now given away for free in-game.]]

[[WMG: A future game will not have an opposing team for you to fight, but rather focus on exploration.]]
Not only which, but you will be able to explore all the previous regions as well, thus reuniting the fans.

[[WMG: A future pair of games will be called Infrared and Ultraviolet.]]
We would get a pair of Bug-type Legendaries.

[[WMG: We will get some kind of official tie between the main games and the world of the Mystery Dungeon games.]]
Even if just an offhand comment in a future Mystery Dungeon explaining where all the humans went.

[[WMG: The World Ribbon will be given out to Pokemon that have cleared every Pokemon league so far]]
In a future generation/game, bringing a Pokemon with a Champion Ribbon (Clear Hoenn/Kanto league), Sinnoh Champ Ribbon, Legend Ribbon (beat red), the Ribbon from Unova league I haven't got yet and the current game's recognition ribbon, will get a fourth wall breaking congratulations from the developers, thanking them for being a true fan (Exceptional fan if you also have an earth/national ribbon on something) of the franchise, ask them if they still remember various things and asking for their continued support.
* How would you transfer the diplomas from Pokemon Blue to Pokemon X and Y? This WMG could only work on a game on the Wii U with all the regions as [=DLCs=].
** What they mean is, start a Pokemon in FR/LG, beat the Elite 4 there, trade them to R/S/E and beat the Elite 4 there, Pal Park them to D/P/P and beat the Elite 4 there, trade them to HG/SS and beat the Elite 4/Red there, and so on through all the games that are still compatible.
*** Cool idea but Hoenn and Kanto have the same ribbon. Johto has ribbon for Red, btw. Also there's no ribbon for Unova League as far as I know. Besides migrating you get ribbons from events only as far as I know.

[[WMG: There will be a villain even worse than Ghetsis. ]]
Yes, you heard me. While [[VideoGame/PokemonColosseum Nintendo has dabbled in it before]], it really showed that it could make powerful monsters with [[spoiler: Darkrai]] and Ghetsis. How do you make someone worse than the two? Why, you merge them together! Imagine someone with [[ItsAllAboutMe the]] [[AbusiveParents unrelenting]] [[TheSociopath sociopathy]] of Ghetsis, and the [[DystopiaJustifiesTheMeans distored]] [[ForTheEvulz sadism]] of [[spoiler: the Mystery Dungeon version of Darkrai.]] You basically have someone on the same level of sick as Dr Weil, and someone worse than the two. [[NightmareFuel Have fun.]]
* Maybe they will play the horribleness of this new villain for laughs. ZeroPercentApprovalRating, EvilIsHammy and FashionVictimVillain will be used in force so that their horrible actions will be dampened.
** Fashion victim villain? Ghetsis. Evil is hammy? Giovanni. Zero percent approval rating? Oh, only every villainous team in Pokemon history.

[[WMG: There will be a spinoff game that explores the world of pokerus.]]
It seems like a good use for this bit of the game. A whole new set of microbial pokemon could be made. The game would probably play like Pokemon Rumble if it were made.

[[WMG: One day in a main game there will be a battle with the true 'Ultimate Trainer' which can last for up to hours, being the first battle that you can save in, can't escape in any way and to utilize more than 6 Pokemon.]]
I'm thinking you only unlock the chance for this battle when you fill ALL your boxes with level 100 Pokemon (and you use them), you must then battle this Trainer who has every fully evolved Pokemon except Legendaries for you to battle, but [[TheComputerIsACheatingBastard they are almost twice the strength as normal.]]
[[WMG: To give more epicness... let's make evolution even more crazy!]]
I mean fourth stage of evolution, evolution branch within evolution branch, or evolution branches having one of the stage the same as other part of branch. Crazy, isn't it?
* This might be confirmed with Mega Evolution...
[[WMG: A future generation will feature hybrid Pokemon.]]
The game developers always seem to be trying to come up with new ways to obtain certain Pokemon. A future generation may have "hyrbid" Pokemon that will result from breeding two different Pokemon species. Not all mixed-species breedings will result in a hybrid Pokemon, but [[HotSkittyOnWailordAction a few]] will.
* Wait, don't we already have this theory somewhere?
** Yeah, a couple of times.

[[WMG: They're running out of ideas for version names.]]
Hopefully they'll come up with something other than "Black Version 2" and "White Version 2".
* Wish granted. We have ''VideoGame/PokemonXAndY''.

[[WMG:A superb move tutor will appear]]
And it will teach many of these move (if not all).
* Razor Wind
* Whirlwind
* Horn Drill
* Take Down
* BubbleBeam
* Water Gun
* Pay Day
* Submission
* Rage
* Mega Drain
* Dragon Rage
* Fissure
* Teleport
* Bide
* Egg Bomb
* Skull Bash
* Psywave
* Curse
* Zap Cannon
* Sweet Scent
* DragonBreath
* Detect

They're all Generation I or II [=TMs=] that so far didn't return after the Generation III reboot.[[note]]Selfdestruct and Nightmare had tutor in XD, and nothing more[[/note]]

* Alternatively, we could have either 5 Tutors with 8 moves each or 16 with 2-4 each, with different levels of cost. An example of the 5 Tutor idea:
** Bide (2 of any Units)
** Bubble Beam (1 Water Unit plus 1 of Any Unit)
** Thunderbolt (2 Electric Units)
** Giga Drain (2 Grass Units)
** Toxic (1 Water Unit plus 1 Grass Unit plus 2 of any Units)
** Psywave (4 of any Units)
** Fire Blast (4 Fire Units)
** Fissure (3 Grass Units plus 1 of every other Unit)
* (OP here) Fake Out, Faint Attack, Night Shade and Hypnosis... They were all tutor in XD. [[FlatWhat But only Mew could learn them]]. That also applied to Zap Cannon (but it was TM in Gen II while others weren't '''EVER''' tutorable besides that) and Role Play (but this one has tutor in HGSS and B2W2, so it's fixed). These may also need help.

[[WMG: The sixth Generation will have the original Dragon that Reshiram, Zekrom, and Kyurem were as an obtainable pokemon]]
To elaborate further (I'm not the person who put that WMG up):
* ''Black 2'' and ''White 2'' had Kyurem fuse with Reshiram or Zekrom, but Kyurem is said to have originally contained both. Thus, an upcoming game will feature a Primal Reversion for Kyurem, sacrificing Reshiram AND Zekrom. Its base stat total will be either 760 (base Kyurem's 660 + 100) or 800 (Black Kyurem or White Kyurem's 700 + 100) and will be Electric/Fire, having shed off the Ice-type that represented its nothingness and the Dragon-type because we can't have Pokémon with 3 types. Alternatively, Kyurem's fusion is NOT a Primal Reversion, which lasts only for the battle, but is permanent and plot-important. In this case, it would have a new Forme altogether, with a base stat total of either 720 (to match Arceus) or 740 (as Kyurem gained 40 points for absorbing one of the other dragons, and so it'd gain another 40 for absorbing the other). I also believe this will happen ''after'' Generation VI, as it's pretty far into the generation and there are dangling threads within this generation that must be addressed first, mostly revolving around Zygarde.

[[WMG: Pokemon's cries will vary depending on gender.]]
Such as female Pokemon having a higher pitch. There could would have, and ideally dual-types to give her team more advantages against a wider variety of types

[[WMG: Future generations will reorder the National Pokedex]]
In addition to providing their own regional Pokedex (starting with that region's starter Pokemon), each generation will reorder the National Pokedex to put cross-generational evolutionary relatives together. The order of evolutionary families will stay the same, however.

For example, Pikachu (the first Pokemon to have such an evolutionary relative) won't be number 25, Pichu will be, and Pikachu will be 26. Another example would be Eevee. Rather than simply having Eevee and the first three evolutions, it will have Eevee, Vaporeon, Jolteon, Flareon, Espeon, Umbreon, Leafeon, Glaceon, and Sylveon all in a row (followed then the Porygon family). Eevee and Porygon, though, will be nowhere near their original national dex numbers due to the large number of Pokemon that will have to be inserted before them which will shift them further and further down.
* As a corollary, this could be an alternate setting choice, similar to the ability to switch settings between regional and national.

[[WMG: Future Generations Will Abandon The Regional Pokedex Concept]]

Every Pokemon game since Ruby and Sapphire have excluded a large number of the existing Pokemon from their Pokedexes until after the National Pokedex. However, the most recent main series games (BW2 and XY) have shown a major trend toward huge Pokedexes. Technically, Kalos had three Regional Pokedexes (of reasonable individual size), but ultimately, the different regional Pokedexes had no impact on the gameplay, and only served to avoid a 450+ Regional Pokedex.

Following this trend, future generations will abandon the concept of excluding Pokemon like that entirely. Regional Pokedexes will still technically exist, but they will be in the style of Gold and Silver's New Pokedex Order, in that they will contain every existing Pokemon in some order (different from the National Pokedex, or, as Gold and Silver called it, the Old Pokedex) and start with that Generation's Starter Pokemon and end with that Generation's Legendary Pokemon.

[[WMG: A future game will expand on underwater exploration.]]
Unlike previous games, it will have multiple interesting underwater environments to explore, and even an underwater city.

[[WMG: The Sinnoh remakes will make at least one previously event-only legendary available via regular gameplay the way Deoxys was in ''Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire''.]]
And quite possibly more than one. Both Darkrai and Shaymin have legitimate cases that they should've been there all along, as their presences are ''strongly'' hinted at by existing events--Darkrai in the Sailor Eldritch event that gets you to Fullmoon Island, and Shaymin by, well, [[EmptyRoomPsych the entire right side of Victory Road and Route 224.]] Except that's just the thing. Ruby and Sapphire didn't hint at Deoxys's existence at all; hell, I think technically Deoxys debuted in the Kanto remakes, not in Hoenn. And from a meta standpoint, Arceus makes more sense for a Delta Episode type of event. Its existence is vaguely hinted at as well, but not in any one event. Every time the player found one of the sixteen Plates that Arceus uses to change types, a little bit of Sinnoh's creation myth was revealed. (Not counting uncovering one of them in the Underground.) Except it wasn't a sixteen-part story; it was an eight-part story, and then it would repeat when you found Plates 9-16. This is important because with the addition of the Fairy type, ''there are now an odd number of Plates''. In order to bring about balance again, there needs to be an 18th Plate...and there should be, because the addition of Mega Pokémon has dethroned Arceus as the highest BST in the game--Mega Mewtwo and Mega Rayquaza now hold that honor, with Primal Groudon and Primal Kyogre also beating out Arceus. In order to regain its spot as the strongest Pokémon of all, Arceus needs a Primal/Mega form.

[[WMG: The Unova remakes will combine both halves of the generation into two games: ''Black/Black 2'' and ''White/White 2''.]]
So that the entire story gets told, without requiring so many different games. There will essentially be two save files for each copy of the game, each one covering a different time period, and there will be some sort of time-travel plot allowing the two periods to interact. Thus the "Memory Link" sort of elements will be even more complex.

[[WMG: With the next change to the type chart, Fairy types will be weak to, and resisted by, Psychic types.]]
The Fairy type are essentially magic users, and magical trickery is useless against beings with powerful minds. Psychic types would be able to disrupt the attacks of Fairy Pokemon and deal super-effective damage to them. This would serve not only to balance Fairies themselves but also to bring Psychics out of their current rut and make them much more useful.
