::::::::::::If it had been called elemental type, I would agree, but it never has. We should go by what is official, and that is "type". --[[User:SnorlaxMonster|<span style="color:#A70000">'''Snorlax'''</span>]][[User talk:SnorlaxMonster|<span style="color:#0000A7">'''Monster'''</span>]] 10:16, 10 August 2011 (UTC)
::::::::::::I've never seen it called "elemental type" anywhere. I support the move. Shaymin_492 20:59, 16 September 2011 (UTC)
:::::::::::::Totally agree. Dragon, Bug, Ghost and Fighting are NOT elemental.
:They are called elements in [http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/616Z6TV28JL._SS500_.jpg this sticker set] ([http://img.orbitbid.com/2010/09/12/100_5621.JPG close-up image]). There are Gen [http://www.toysnjoys.com/pokemon/stickerextravaganza.jpg II] and [http://www.toysnjoys.com/pokemon/dpstickerextravaganza.jpg IV] versions of the same set, but I wouldnt know if they also refer to the types as elements. <small><span style="color:white; background-color:#007FFF">'''X'''</span>[[User:Vuvuzela2010|<span style="color:#007FFF; background-color:white">'''Vuvuzela2010''']]</span><span style="color:white; background-color:#007FFF">'''X'''</span></small> 21:11, 16 September 2011 (UTC)
::"Element" is just Generation I terminology. I have seen it used in quite a few Gen I situations (although not as often as type). "Element" was used in [[A Sneak Peek at Pokémon]] too. However, the more common term is and always has been "type", and is the only term to be used since Gen I. I think we should mention how the term "element" was interchangeable with type in Generation I, but "elemental type is just incorrect as it has never been used officially anywhere. --[[User:SnorlaxMonster|<span style="color:#A70000">'''Snorlax'''</span>]][[User talk:SnorlaxMonster|<span style="color:#0000A7">'''Monster'''</span>]] 23:54, 16 September 2011 (UTC)
