More Pokemon News: CrAzY Typing!

EDIT: just updated with about a google more spoilers! just posted some spoilers for the soon-to-be-released new Pokemon games, and let me tell you, this sh!t is CRAZY! It's basically just the typing for the 12 legendary Pokemon in the game (counting Reshiram and Zekrom, not counting Victini), but the new typings are REVOLUTIONARY, especially the one that's bolded.

And, not spoil, but the version of the legendary birds/gerbils/golems/fairies is pretty easy to spot, and seems to be getting back to using a more diverse and interesting concept. This set appears to be dual-typed, recalling the diversity of Generation 1's Moltres, Zapdos, and Articuno. I'm also hoping that this generation will continue introducing "Regigigas"-like masters for either this new trio or past trios. That super-revolutionary monster I mentioned above could be one such master, and one of the event-only legendaries looks like it reflects the typing-pattern of this generation's trio.
Oh, and the typing of the third mascot dragon is revealed and it looks awesome! Given that Reshiram and Zekrom use their Fire and Electric-typings to propel themselves, like big jet engines, I'm not sure what that means for the central concept of the third dragon. Given that its typing seems to be opposed to motion/energy I think it's probable that we'll see a return to the third mascot's role as a peace-bringer, a la Generation III's Rayquaza. I imagine that Resh and Zek are duking it out, or constantly changing (see the hints that they will be able to change type during battle), and this third dragon will come and settle things down by stopping the cycle or locking their typing.

My last piece of speculation is that, given the tradition of having the last two event-only Pokemon be a cute, cuddly monster followed by a ridiculous, pwning monster, Generation V is definitely pulling something out of left field for its version of Deoxys/Arceus. That typing is... so... random!
