Base stats aside and the focus on typing, the only fully-evolved Pokemon to bare simply the dragon type is Haxorus and Druddigon, and the latter is easily outmatched by other choices; all the other ones are dual-typed.
As for ice, having its moves at your access is very useful, but at the top of my head I can't think of a great one to use in the standardized metagame...

Basically what @RedPanda said. Ice is great for attacking a bunch of types but sucks defensively. Even the STAB can't make up for it, just being super effective gives it a better boost than being an Ice type and hitting something neutral anyway. Not to mention Hail is a rare weather condition. Being an Ice-type is also not that great against other type options anyway, because Water-types get boosted by the common Rain, and many of those already learn Ice moves.

Ice has moves that freeze people as well making it more useful offensively.

Hail was usable from Abomasnow in the average metagame before DW Politoed came in, although even then Tyranitar and Hippowdon were usually better for the many extra abilities having to do with sand. With gen six I'm hoping for new abilities based on hail and just a few support/offensive ice 'mons, because that could really spice up the competition. As of now, rain is way OP. A good rain team can practically only be beaten by Trick Room teams...

If there is a Fairy type, I think that it will be weak to Electric(there's an Eeveelution chart on Pokémon.com and Eeveelutions are adjacent to ones that they are weak/strong against). Still, every rumour is a tall tale to me.

I actually think it should be the other way around. Electric is strong against three different types, yet only Ground-type moves provide an effective counter to it. Apart from Normal, there's no other type with only one weakness.

Same here. I always thought Poison should be super effective against Water. They could always take from Gen. 1 and have Poison super effective against Bug but I think Poison SE against Water would be better. Water only has 2 weaknesses anyway, a third weakness would match the number of weaknesses Fire types have.

Electric needs to stay that way.

Normal is a weird type as well. It does have a weakness to Fighting, but Normal attacks don't hit for Super Effective damage against anything. I guess it is that way because Normal-type moves are so common and there's much more of them than in any other type (not all offensive off course, but still...). Anyway I think it would be interesting to see a new type that is weak to Normal.

Incidentally, there's a lot of info coming up today about these new versions. Look it up at Serebii.

The starters types all have 3 weaknesses except water
water needs to be beaten by something else to make the 3 types seem equal instead of water seemingly being the best and it beats rock, ground, fire and I think ice
Ice should beat water in my opinion

Water-type attacks do 2x damage against Rock, Ground, and Fire-types, but only 1x damage against Ice-types. Ice-type attacks only do 1/2x damage against Water-types though.

I would really like to see some starter evos, or at least a new line (versus a new forme or side evo of an already existing line) this month.

From the starters? you mean charmander into something else instead of charmeleon? what's the point in that? I don't know if this is what you mean, if it is, bad idea and a new form, no
Starters in my opinion are great the way they are maybe they could've had diferent looks but I'm sure someone had to create charizard like 5 times before they thought it was good enough. Typing could've been different I think emboar should've fire/ground or something but anyway
New evo line and new forms for old starters, no from me

I mean revealing an evo for Chespin, Fennekin, and/or Froakie. Or for Smash/Corocoro to reveal a Pokémon from an entirely new line, rather than a new evo for an already existing line (Sylveon) or new forme (Mewtwo).
