I understand Light because we have Dark but Sound....really......unless it's to counter it so Sound is effective against it while Light is good against Dark.

Wonder if they would change older Pokemon types if they suited these types more then the ones they were given

Last time we had new types it was in Gold and Silver with Dark/Steel types

Snookies121347d ago

Yeah, I like the inclusion of Light, but I'm not sure if Sound is necessary. Still, I suppose we'll just have to wait and see. Just now getting around to Black/White 2, so I'll be ready to go for X/Y.

Root1347d ago (Edited 1347d ago )

I wonder if they'll change things around now

Psychic was orginaly the counter to Dark which is why we had Espeon and Umbreon in Gen 2 when the Dark type came around but I wonder if they'll change it now so Light is the counter to Dark while Psychic is the counter to Sound.

Psychic is about your mind and using that in battle while Sound is about using another sense, manipulating sound waves.

Wonder if they'll go back and change older Pokemon to suit the types

For example


I imagine they will, they did it with Magnemite

I'm all for a Sound type personally, don't see why not. More additions the better

helghast1021346d ago

A Dark counter doesn't make sense though, Dark was implemented as a direct counter to Psychic and the direct counter to Dark is Fighting

i want pokemon rated T, and a kirby game rated T

RTheRebel1347d ago

rumors I heard X and Y story will have a story dealing with a world wide crisis.

animegamingnerd1347d ago

perhaps we might finally go back to a old region perhaps but i don't get my hopes up

animegamingnerd1347d ago (Edited 1347d ago )

@bullymangLer seriously

bullymangLer1347d ago

pokemon rated T and kirby rated T is more suitable for those who want to see more violence . ..

Snookies121347d ago

Well I mean, having it rated as T would give more room for pushing some boundaries... I would be okay with the series maturing a little (although it seems to have done that a fair bit with Black/White already).

It's not something that's necessary, but it would be neat to see a darker story/scenario perhaps.

AdvanceWarsSgt1347d ago

Psychic already fulfills the role of the Light type and Sound doesn't make any damn sense since all Pokemon make sounds. Whoever even came up with these types as possible additions to the series obviously didn't think it through.

ironfist921347d ago

I think Psychic is contrasted to Ghost, whereas Light contrasts to Dark

Root1347d ago

Yeah but at one time they made it out that Psychic was the opposite of Dark

It's why when we had Evees two new evolutions in Gold and Silver, Espeon and Umbreon they were considered opposites to counter one another.

If they had two new Evee evolotuions in this game one for Sound and Light then they could counter one another but with just the one, in the picture, it seems odd not to have one for this new type.

animegamingnerd1347d ago

interesting we haven't had a new type of pokemon added since gen 2 light will most likely counter dark but what will counter sound?

Black-Rock-Shooter1347d ago

i can believe light but sound is just odd.

GreenRanger1347d ago

They'll make a deaf type to counter the sound type.

LMAO! Then how will they respond to your commands? Sign language?
