Looks like I was right about a pure Flying-type...
As a form of protest, I refuse to make a signature...

I haven't been paying attention to Generation V - because I don't want to spoil it - but I checked out your link; that Pokemon reminds me a lot of some dragon on Dragon Ball Z.

Fire/Grass
Water/Fire
I mean, we already have Water/Grass.

Please give me internets! So much less bulkier than those eggs.

Psychic/ Dark would be cool... Like dark magic.
Fire and Ice, that would be awesome.
Psychic/Ghost
Ice/Steel
I blame the economy.

Normal/Ghost - simply because it is the only type combination that resists both Ghost and Fighting. This breaks the battle strategy of Ghost/Fighting, which is used because no Pokémon resists both Ghost and Fighting, meaning any Pokémon can be hit for neutral damage.

Sweet. It's an entire evolution line based on candles.

And it's a level-up evolution followed by a dusk stone evolution; only evolution chain of that combination.

Seems kind of contradictory doesn't it? One with that type combination can't use any STAB hits on others of its species because Normal can't attack Ghost and Ghost can't attack Normal.

it would be interesting to see it vs. itself.

Oh wow, it's even better than I thought. It breaks a popular competitive battling strategy AND can't hit itself with STAB. As long as it had decent stats and an average movepool, it would go straight to OU.

Gamefreak better give me a Fighting/Flying next gen or else... I'll have to buy my Gen VI game 2 days after release... and I mean it!

Also a Bug/Dark would be cool or a Bug/Water that doesn't evolves into yet another Bug/Flying.

Yeah, a Fighting/Flying would be awesome. And i agree there are too many bug/flying (although, considering the amount of instincts that can fly in the real world, it sort of makes sense).

I wonder if an article about type combinations that currently don't exist would be useful on bulbapedia?

Not really... encyclopedias show what exists, not what you are missing because someone hasn't invented it yet.

Ice/Steel would be interesting to see, also a Electric/Poison with an attack that 20% poisons or paralyze.

In fact, forget about type combinations, I want more crazy moves with unexpected outcomes, those are the best addition to every Gen.

Seems appropriate :P

Ghost/Grass, that's new. In fact I would propose a new evolution of Tangrowth with this type.

I say what I want the most is Ghost/Water. The ghost of a fish, perhaps?
