Pokemon Type Symbols by ILKCMP Pokemon Type Symbols by ILKCMP

For those who haven't yet seen them, these are the symbols for use in Neo Redux. All 18 official types are represented, plus Cosmic, Sound, Light, and Cyber (respectively, on the bottom). They were included merely because they are some of the most commonly requested "fan-types," and I was asked to create symbols for them.

Don't ask me what the type matchup for those types would be, either. I haven't thought about it, and since they aren't types that I necessarily agree with, I don't really plan to!


I did alter the "official" colors to those more of my liking.



UPDATE 12/9/11:
Dragon symbol is now the official Dragon-type TCG symbol found in the upcoming Dragon Selection set.

UPDATE 5/23/13:
With the new Fairy-type Pokémon appearing in Pokémon X/Y, I decided to create a symbol for the type, based on Sylveon's bow.


HUGE UPDATE 6/1/13:
I've decided to completely update the way the symbols are presented (a bit more stylized). The names of the types are now found underneath the symbols as well. Bird-type has been removed in this version. Please download for full-view!

UPDATE 6/11/13:
Looks like Fairy-type is real! The new Eeveelution, Sylveon, is confirmed Fairy, and Jigglypuff, Marill, and Gardevoir have Fairy added onto their original types. Another new Pokémon, Flabébé, has also been shown (pure Fairy).

UPDATE 8/21/13:
Updated with the official Fairy-type symbol.

UPDATE 8/24/13:
New Cosmic and Light symbols.


Enjoy!

Thanks! I used Illustrator for the symbols themselves, while the brushed metal icons were put together in Photoshop.

Yeah, the four types at the bottom are examples of some of the more...requested types, and aren't necessarily any that I agree with.

We need a sound, light, cosmic, and cyber type so much

Sound I can maybe get behind...the others? Nah. Theoretical Light-, Cosmic-, and Cyber-type Pokémon already fit into the other types pretty well.

I was tired as hell last night. And i really still agree with them all save light. Cyber DOESNT fit into anything. We have Normal, Electric, Steel, Ghost, Bug, and more that fit Cyber. Cosmic, it has Psychic, Fairy, Normal, and Dark types that fit under it. Sound, is by far, the most obvious of them all. How does normal=sound? Normal, Dragon, Flying, Psychic, and Dark all have pokemon that would be better suited for Sound. And then some pokemon, like Politoad, Kricketune, and Mismagius should just have it added.

Well, Gamefreak seems to think Normal is still a good catch-all for sound-based and cyber/manmade Pokémon. Or, at the very least, it can act as a placeholder for "types" that don't warrant a full typing.

Considering the Pyroar line was given Normal-type as a secondary typing for seemingly little reason, I can only assume it was because of the line's connection to sound (Noble Roar). This is the same reason why the Jigglypuff line kept Normal while adding Fairy instead of, say, the Clefairy line (pure Fairy). The way I see it is this...sound waves are essentially vibrations, right? Well, sound-based Pokémon's typings depend on how the sound waves are produced. Pokémon which produce sound through their mouths (Jigglypuff and family, Exploud and family, Litleo/Pyroar) are part Normal-type, as there's no element associated with it. However, other Pokémon that are associated with sound/vibrations produce sounds through other means (Noivern for example) are given a typing that better suits it -- a typing which overrides Normal. That's why Noibat and Noivern are the only dual-typed Flying-types to have Flying as a primary type (the sound-based parts of their designs take precedence over the dragon-based parts).

As for why Cyber-type isn't a thing -- well, I'm not a designer at Gamefreak but I can't think of too many diverse designs that could fit in that typing. Look at any of the real types, and there's plenty of diversity within each.

Plus, 18-types is more than enough. Fairy-type was added to balance Dragons (as Steel- and Dark-types were to balance Psychic). I can't think of how any additional types would further balance the type chart. In my opinion, Ice-types could use a little a buff, but I can't think of how any proposed types would do so. Additionally, with how Gamefreak is (sadly) making the game easier and easier, I don't think they'd want to complicate things (i.e. the type chart) any more.
