    Congrats to Ghost, Fire, Grass and Dark. They won the last poll. This poll is to decide the best of them. The one with the most votes becomes the base type of our next Pokemon.

    Not to much to say, but keep in mind this. The winner of this poll moves onto the next one. There it is pair with all types it is already not paired with, plus a pure type option. So, you are basically voting for all the type combos possible with that type. So if you wanted a Water-type, Fire and Ghost are options you can choose to bring Water back. I'll list the type combos for the lazy and ignorant.

    Ghost (10):
    Ghost
    Ghost/Normal
    Ghost/Fire
    Ghost/Water
    Ghost/Grass
    Ghost/Fight
    Ghost/Ground
    Ghost/Psychic
    Ghost/Rock
    Ghost/Steel

    Fire (10)
    Fire
    Fire/Normal
    Fire/Water
    Fire/Electric
    Fire/Grass
    Fire/Ice
    Fire/Poison
    Fire/Psychic
    Fire/Bug
    Fire/Ghost

    Grass (6):
    Grass
    Grass/Normal
    Grass/Fire
    Grass/Electric
    Grass/Ghost
    Grass/Steel

    Dark (8):
    Dark
    Dark/Normal
    Dark/Electric
    Dark/Fight
    Dark/Ground
    Dark/Psychic
    Dark/Bug
    Dark/Steel

    GO GO VOTE!

    Grass.

    Ghost / Normal is too dangerous for me. However, grass is an awesome type with plenty of innovation out there left. IIRC, there is no grass pokemon that is a tree for example. (Sudowoodo does not count)

    lol, last poll had Ground in the lead for 5 seconds. This poll I'm being more judgmental. Voting for which ever turns out to be second to Ghost in an attempt to overthrow it.

    Grass / Steel seems like the best idea for a pokemon I've ever heard. Its pretty much a contradiction to the classical elements. (Easy way to remember classic elements, its Captain Planet, with "Aether" instead of heart. :-p)

    Dark/Fighting would be sweet, but doesn't stand a chance. I voted Ghost because I already started thinking of Ghost concepts during the last poll.

    Voted Ghost. I can see Water/Ghost being a great Sp. Sweeper, Ghost/Fighting or Ghost/Steel would make great Tanks, and I'd love to see a Physical Ghost/Normal, STABBed Return and Shadow Sneak/Shadow, Punch (though I can see making his custom move a physical ghost one with about 95+ power) would be dominating. Would've voted Dark just for a Dark/Electric type but it'll lose in the end.

    ghost/normal would be neat. I'm trying to think what kind of critter/monster would be cool for that.

    Maybe a lynx? I don't know why but this guy looks rather ghostly to me. Maybe the eyes.

    Fuck Ghost type....really.

    Every single Ghost poke except for Gastly is UU and above, we just got a 2 Ghost walls (Duskinor and Spiritomb), a Ghost sweeper (Mismagus), a Ghost Uber (two f you count the fact that 90% of Arceus are Ghost type) as well as Froslass, Rotom, and, Drifblim.

    I mean come fucking on. WE NEED BITCH'N GRASS POKE.

    Hyra, don't go with Ghost, its not something we would need.
