It's a fact that many Pokemon in today's metagame suffer from a bad typing. Pokemon such as Charizard and Abomasnow are perpetually hampered by their crippling 4x weaknesses to some attacks. Wouldn't it be great if they could rid themselves of this burden and blossom with a fresh typing? Well, now you can, with Camomons! Each and every Pokemon become the types of the first two moves in their moveslots! Undershadowed Pokemon can now experience a new life in this OM. Even popular Pokemon can transform to fit and match the player's desires. Anything is possible!
Mechanic: Pokemon change their type to match the types of their first two moves in their moveslots. For instance, a Lucario with Swords Dance, Close Combat, Crunch and Bullet Punch will become a Normal / Fighting-type. Mimic, Multi-Attack, and other such moves are considered Normal-type moves and will change Pokemon to said type if it is in the first half of the Pokemon's moveslots. Pokemon with multiple moves of the same type in their first two slots will have only one type. For instance, a Lucario with Close Combat, Vacuum Wave, Nasty Plot and Swords Dance will be a mono Fighting-type. Types are revealed to the player instantly upon being sent out.

Pokemon with access to moves with desirable types are favored in this meta. Steel, Ghost and Fairy are all incredible defensive types and as such many Pokemon will seek to transform into those types. Powerful offensive Pokemon that primarily rely on one offensive STAB often can be seen transforming into types that grant them STAB on their coverage move. For example, Toxtricity can now use STAB Boomburst, which reaches incredible power when paired with its Punk Rock ability.
Q: Does undergoing a transformation that causes a type change interfere with the Pokemon's original type? (E.G. Does Silvally's RKS System interfere with Camomon's type changes)
A: No. Changing a Pokemon's form, be it through held items or any other method, will not result in a type change.
