Nachomon: Revised Pokemon Type Chart

Thought I'd share this. Been working on and off on my own Pokemon game (actually called Nachomon) and one of the things I decided to do is a major type revision. A lot of the types are still there but renamed, but I've also added/expanded on a few. I also changed the weakness/resistance/immunity table by like, a lot. Maybe this will interest someone. Any suggestions would be neat, too.
