I know ShadowApex has said that we're committing to five types at this time, and I think that's fair enough - I certainly don't want to make more work for us at this point.
But at the back of my mind, I've been thinking for a while about how well two new types would fit into our matrix:
The two extra types would fit in as such:
I think with the current five types, there are a lot that fit quite awkwardly. Wood is a catch-all for nature spirits and flying things that could better go to Heaven, and Metal has abstract beings, human-like beings, corrupted or weird things, etc. It would balance out the categories too: many in Wood and Fire could go to Heaven and many in Metal could go to Darkness.
Anyway, I'm not actually proposing that we implement this change, at least not for the first game! I just wanted to share it, because I think it's a great idea.
EDIT: I think it'd also be good to make Heaven and Darkness super-effective against one another.
It also occurred to me this afternoon that under my proposed system Fire (0.5 vs Earth, 2 vs Metal, 2 vs Darkness) would be very close to Darkness (0.5 vs Earth, 2 vs Metal, 2 vs Heaven). In that case, you could instead make Darkness super-effective against Wood, as living things need light, and Wood super-effective against Heaven (not sure why, though ... )

"Heaven and Darkness" sounds interesting...I don't know if it's good to add new types, I won't judge about that. But here's something I'd like to add:
we have the 5 elements "wood", "fire", "water", "metal", "earth"; these are natural. The natural tuxemon belong to these types.when the humans came, they brought something new... a soul, which can behave good or evil. They have moral.
Soon, a new wheel of elements was added, the balance of nature was changed. "heaven" and "darkness", "good" and "bad", "moral" and "corruption"... "cathedral" and "bazaar"
Soon, artificial tuxemon were created. The natural tuxemon had to live with the changes the humans brought. Since then, tuxemon existed, which adapted the types "heaven" and "darkness"
We'll meet again, don't know where, don't know when. But I know we'll meet again some sunny day!
