This would be extremely broken.

How would it be broken? In fact we already have something similar with this via ability. And it takes away an ability per say

I still have problems understanding Flying Press (dual type move)... I'm not into it.

2 different things. It just means for the abilility a pokemon would gain more resistances and have stab toward that typing

Triple resistances and the opportunity for three stab moves of different types on one moveset. Broken.



Well, this is new.

Read.

I think this would be a bad idea since it would make things really complicated with the not very effective and super effective just for starters..

Triple resistance is already a thing. Look at Walrien.

And your acting like every pokemon will have triple resistance and on top of that i dont see how ghost type pokemon are broken especially gengar that has 3 immunitys.

I know, it's just complicated stuff. 

It's kinda like Pixielate or Aerialate, which makes normal type moves into Fairy or Flying types respectively, giving an extra stab move with no risk.

What you want is simply add resistances to the mix

Edit: If they do something like your idea, I expect GF to expand those abilities rather than make new abilities all togeher.



Bet with bluedawgs: I say Switch will outsell PS4 in 2018, he says PS4 will outsell Switch. He's now permabanned, but the bet will remain in my sig.

Please no. The whole type table thing already got way too complex. I need the freaking table by my side to keep track as i play the game already. At this pace it will become a spreadsheet.

Wut ? Dual Typing halving the STAB ?? Since when ?

STAB was only halved moving from V gen to VI gen for balancing purposes, this is the first time I hear about this and I'm really skeptical towards it...

Does it not? :o

Shows how much I know about Pokemon battling

Nope

http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Same-type_attack_bonus

the italian page underlines how some Nintendo guides reported incorrectly that the bonus is halved by dual typing so I'll give you that...



Imagine all the problems to implement and balance that.



You know it deserves the GOTY.

As I said in my first post this ability beeing broken or not solely depends on what type it gives to the Pokémon, say you want to give Ice to a Dragon/Flying type so that it only gets x2 damage from Ice, I don't see any Dragon Type using Ice moves besides Kyurem and Goodra so they wouldn't even use the STAB, or,  if you prefer, since the weakneses are not given to them they could just not give them the STAB aswell to balance things up, so the only thing the Pokémon gets are immunities/resistances...
