The same for Ice types. It was always added on to Water pokemon who could be tied into the cold. 3rd Gen brought in the pokemon to be pure Ice but for the majority it was still added on to certain types to help display their ties to the cold.
I do agree there should be a separation of the Fighting, Rock and Ground types. Just like the Dragons, we finally have enough pokemon to justify having their own type within the TCG. If anything at least give Fighting their own typing and keep Rock and Ground together because of their similarities.
Poison and Ghost could use their own typing or at least remove one of them to give them their own typing. The problem I think is that it would create a huge change in the game play. The same problem I can see happening with Bug if they were given their own type.
i have thought about this since i started playing. the way i see it, it's not that hard to make different types. poison could be waters template, but purple. ice could be a snowflake with blue. rock/ground can be a rock with the color of fighting or light brown. flying, a tornado with white. ghost and bug, I'm not sure what to do but, it shouldn't be too hard. that's pretty much it, but i would agree that flying has been thought by 99% of people but, I thought it was a prime type needed to beat any game, not a secondary.you know what, i play and i honestly need to know if they're going to add anymore, because the more they add, the more confusing it is. but, on the other hand, it will give pokemon more individuality than before. i mean look at it, dragon gets a type so in turn, if this is a huge success, pokemon will think about adding other types like ice ghost etc., so really its not a bad thing that dragon was added. though i don't know where to get the dragon type pokemon/energies.
