Default Absence of Light Type?

I have been wandering about this for very long, they have a Darkness type but no Light Type? ain't it weird?

That wasn't what I was referring to, I was referring well currently there are 17 types ranging from Normal to Steel, but I just don't understand why Light isn't one of them.

Maybe because Dark was added to be an actually used counter for Psychic types? That's just my opinion, though.

Personally, they've added way too many types already. I can see Light being added as a balancer (Ghost, dark being completely resistant to everything) but they shouldn't be expanding the type range right now.

Well it doesn't hurt to just add one more type to counter Ghost and Dark.

The weakness is easy, Light and Darkness can just be strong at each other just like in most games. Grass can also be one of Light's weakness just like the case of Water as plants absorbs both water and light. This may just empower Grass a little more since its quite weak right now.

Psychic, Electric and maybe even Fire and Grass pokemons may well be able to Light moves and Light pokemons may then well be able to learn Fire and Electric moves too.

If they had the time to seperate Ice from Water, split Earth into Ground and Rock and splitting Ghost and Darkness, I don't see why they can't even come out with Light.

Which Pokemon would be categorized as Light Type?

I'm also assuming a new type would result in creating more than 491.

Mew can be a light/psychic. Others like Clefairy, Jirachi, etc...

and Arceus would have been a Light type too with Judgement being a Light Type as well and if new pokemons need to be created, by all means.

After several generations, with the current types and moves they achieved more or less a balance between types. If some other new type gets thrown into the game, it'll most probably result in a repetition of generation I's psychic types and will have to fix it after another generation. :x

Fire is light.

Not only it emits heat energy, but also light energy

"flawless" logic

Fire doesn't really represent Light too well because things like lava definitely isn't really Light especially since its not even strong against Darkness. Besides if they are gonna combine Light into Fire, then why bother splitting Water and Ice and dividing Earth into Ground and Rock.

and no adding of just this one type will not imbalance the game it will just empower Grass types a little which are currently pathetic enough with 5 weaknesses 7 ineffectiveness and only 3 strengths while it keeps Ghost and Darkness in balance.
