Technically, there is already a Shadow-type (Aka the Dark type).

as Zoroark stated shadow is ghost (shadow ball anyone?), Dark doesn't really associate with shadows as much as ghost.

At this point in time, I have absolutely NO idea what to expect with the legendaries, titles, etc. So I can't wait to see something stupid pop up. :|

It will be stupid, they've already pulled out the pokemon god, so unless they retcon Generation IV, there's practically no room for creativity to create a legend (or sets of them) on par with what Gen IV had, as they pretty much introduced the pokemon who created the Pokemon Universe.

well they dont neccesarily have to make it that the legendary has some kind of connection to a form of creation,, they could make it that they are rarely ever seen like the legendary birds and beasts

Is there actually any proof that Arceus is god? I always assumed that that was simply a legend in Sinnoh.

well the sinnoh legend stated that arceus created the Universe so, that kinda gives us the assumption that he is, but they could always say "yo the where other pokemon gods"

Arceus is not "it" any more than Mewtwo was. They can make stuff just as powerful as far as base stats go even if they don't have the same sort of mythology. After all, were Lugia, Ho-Oh, Rayquaza, Dialga, Palkia, and Giratina created by enhanced cloning?

Shadow type = Ghost type.
I thought about that, too. I guess it could count, but if that counts, why is everyone complaining that a light type would be pointless if it actually has a parallel type?

Level 3: The reason I don't count Ghost as a "Shadow" type based off the fact that it has a "Shadow" Ball move. If that were the case, we'd be calling grass or fire the "Light" type: Solar Beam, Sunny Day.

Something that they won't do... but would be truly quite amazing if they did...

Fighting, Dark, and Psychic starters!! Or some other elemental triangle than fire, water, and grass. It may break tradition... but Pokémon is starting to become monotonous as time progresses...

it's probably not going to happen, as "not very effective" is more early game friendly than "no effect at all". This is good for beginners, as the later may catch them off-guard.

Grass, fire and water have plenty of "not very effective", but none of them have "no effect at all", making them excellent beginners. Then addin stats, moves and other things as the game progresses, the "no effect at all" of ground, flying, ghost and normal becomes better favored as the mid-game enters approaches, and then the end game is more about the players preference than either of the two talked about here.

let;s see
(>  mean increased damage, < means decreased damage)
ground >rock
rock > flying
but flying is neutral to ground


next:

rock < ground
flying < rock
ground does no damage to flying, and each starter must do less damage to one and more to another type.

On a different note, what could they call the games?  They're running out of precious stones/metals. If it is something to do with darkness, like everyone's suggesting, maybe Obsidian?

I would like an Amethyst named game :P And maybe....Quartz
Amethyst and Quartz.
I like those because they actually ARE minerals.... (Pearl is not a mineral, but it is a gemstone, so that makes it okay)

Let's just hope that they aren't named after random crap like "Rising Darkness" and "Glowing Light"....
I hope they continue the tradition of color/metal/gemstone names (interesting transition...)

I was thinking Opal and Quartz, and then Amethyst would be a good name for the 3rd version.

Alternatively, they could just go back to good old colours and make Pokemon Purple, Orange and Brown.
