Actual poison isn't the lifeblood of Poison-types that ain't like Grimer. Speakin' of, Grimer actually live in the water (ohai Celadon city), which shows the whole "diluted poison" logic really doesn't apply. Poison should be super effective against Water, with Water neutral to Poison IMO.
... Not that Game Freak will ever apply this change anywho. ._.
Ice could use a boost too, I mean, the Pokemon themselves. I've delivered the idea of having hail boost their physical defense by 50%, and I also think they should have their movepools expanded. I mean, seriously, so many Ice types have Ice and Normal attacks as their only form of offense. This is not acceptable! No other type has such shitty movepools, even Grass types usually have some status options up their sleeves. ._.
Doesn't make sense for Poison t' resist Water. I'm all for makin' Water less omnipotent (Kyogre should really stop bein' the most used Pokemon evar), but only if it's logical.
Ice just needs t' not suck as badly defensively, like Electric.
Electric types are only weak to Ground, and it has more then one resist. I think that it's acceptable enough as a defensive type. It's not good or anything, but it's acceptable, imo. Electric Pokemon tend to suck defensively, but this is usually because of their defensive stats.Ice just needs t' not suck as badly defensively, like Electric.
Speakin' of, Ice freezes Water. I don't think Ice should inherently resist Water, but I do think Water should be weak t' Ice. Walruses and other such animals that live in frozen waters aren't exactly immune t' the low temperature and can still freeze t' death if submerged for long enough. As such, why do Pokes like Dewgong bloody 4x resist it? Makes sense if they have Thick Fat, but what 'bout Pokes like Carracosta or Kabutops that lived in a warm time period? Or Pokemon like Seaking who live in streams as opposed to oceans and 'specially frozen water. They should be weak t' low temperatures.
Ice does need a boost moreso defensively than offensively, but I feel my point is logical either way.
I've always felt as though Ice should be 2x effective on water, but water should be super effective on ice! When it rains, snow melts. Water turns snow into water!
On the Sylveon topic, (I know I've brought it up before, but) what about Cosmic type?
Plus, what about a mystic/fairy type?
But, there would be conflict types... Like what about fighting vs. fairy, or dragon, dark...? Magic/fairy seems like it would be an overpowered type... Or under-powered...
