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.

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.

I’m thinking of Cyber as Pokémon like the Porygon evolutionary line and Pokémon like that..
AssaultBird2454 Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2018
So i am working on a project... Is it possible that i use it in my project. I wont be selling any copy's of it however since i will be taking donations in the near future to handle server fees it may be considered commercial work

Would i need to pay for a usage license or can i just use them with a mention in the about tab?
BlueOfPalletTown Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2018
These are amazing! Would it be okay to use these for a video? Credit will be given in spades! 
ILKCMP Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2018
Thank you! Absolutely feel free to use them!

Thank you so much!

Light would probably be strong against Dark and Ghost type Pokemon. But weak against Electricity since it's just energy. And maybe Fairies since they manipulate it in some fiction. 
thomasDeQuincey Featured By Owner Aug 27, 2017
As a suggestion, I'd renamed them into ".... gamma ..." and picked a single color for each.

I wish those four were canon.

Cosmic > Fire, Steel, Rock (No oxygen = no fire, Our weapons will be useless if invaded, Asteroids and orbit)
Cosmic < Ghost, Psychic, Poison, Fighting (We would depend on paranormal and supernatural to save us, aliens aren't immune to diseases, aliens are thin and fragile)

Light > Dark, Ghost, Ice (Sun rises and super heroes beat darkness, ever played Luigi's mansion?, The sun rays melt ice)
Light < Grass, Fire, Dark (Photosynthesis, Sun is fire, Moon rises and some villains beat heroes)

Don't really care for Sound and Cyber

Light-type would make sense, as we already have Dark-types.
Cosmic-type wouldn't be too far-fetched, considering some of the Legendary Pokémon's Roles and Lore, and even an Alien.
Cyber-type, while niche, isn't completely out of the question, as we have a Pokémon literally made out of a raw Data.
Sound-type however, seems too niche, I know some Pokémon out there play a role with sonic abilities, but to make an entire catagory out of them alone is somewhat redudant when they already belong to the Normal-typing.
ILKCMP Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2017
I don't really think we need any new types at all, but I'm not sure we agree on Light-type. Dark-type, as a whole, is more heavily themed on fighting dirty and using underhanded tricks on your opponent. Fighting-types are, in that regard, the foil to Dark-types (fighting fair). To an extent, Fairy-types are as well. I think the introduction of the Fairy-type was partly Gamefreak's answer to "Light-type," seeing as many Pokémon fans wanted a Light-type for were included (such as the Togekiss line). From a standpoint of physical light, that can be covered by existing types, as light-based attacks are a variety of types.

While I agree that sound-based Pokémon are best suited for other types, mostly Normal, I think it would have the best chance to become a type in the future. That being said, I don't think it'll happen.

What about legendary?
ILKCMP Featured By Owner May 9, 2017
You mean as a type?
SmokeyandtheBandit Featured By Owner May 10, 2017
ILKCMP Featured By Owner May 13, 2017
I don't think it's needed. It doesn't cover anything that isn't already covered -- it's fine as a subgroup of Pokémon.
SmokeyandtheBandit Featured By Owner Jun 4, 2017
I wonder if sound or cyber will ever become official.
ILKCMP Featured By Owner Jun 4, 2017
Probably not, I'd assume, but anything is possible!

I see your rock and ghost icons were inspired by the rock terrain symbol from the Indigo league and the fog badge from Morty's gym in Gold/Silver, that's a neat nod to existing media.

I see what you did there. Totally stole that Light symbol from Digimon - maybe turned it 45 degrees to the side.

I really like the idea of "Cosmic" (Deoxys, Lunatone, Solrock, Solgaleo, Lunala); "Sound" (Chatot, Meloetta, Whismur, Noivern, Primarina, Jigglypuff); "Light" (Solgaleo[?], Solrock, Sunny Castform and all "sunny" and bright pokémon); and "Cyber" (like Rotom).

I think other types too, like "Fossil" (a type that can replace Rock, pre historic Pokémon fossils are made from rocks, but it alive are not rocks); "Lava" (lava is not fire, but is just my idea... water can't stop lava :D (Big Grin) ); "Nuclear" (chemicals, and their "children", like Muk and Grimer - yeah, its toxic, but is too chemical Sweating a little... ); "Mud" (like Mudkip and Wooper, maybe Palpitoad and Gastrodon); and "Mineral" (Carbink, Diancie and Sableye, that have crystal and odes).

I can definately see Cyber being a thing in the near future, as well as Cosmic, since space flight and computer technology improve more and more.
Also, they look awesome. :)

So, the bottom 4 are real?
ILKCMP Featured By Owner Dec 21, 2016
Negative. Just types people often name as potential new ones.
SmokeyandtheBandit Featured By Owner Dec 21, 2016
I see.
KenTheNekomata Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Fairy takes the role of light, Sound type is normal type no matter what, Cyber and Cosmic will always be Psychic. and the unknown ??? type is going to be a pushover as various typing. So apparently Gamefreak and Nintendo are selling out on us in a good way, There will be no sound or light type, Because we already have it.

I'd like to use it for my mini pokedex instead of my ugly pictograms (I am demoniac as web-designer :vomit: )
My favorite in this selection is the ghost.
