This question already has an answer here:

As the title says, I don't get pointy triangle bullet lists.

\documentclass{beamer}

\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[ngerman]{babel}
\usepackage{svg}
\usepackage{tikz}
\usetikzlibrary{chains, positioning, shapes.symbols}
\usepackage{etoolbox}
\usepackage{enumitem}

%\usepackage{gensymb}
%\usepackage{siunitx}

%\sisetup {
    %locale = DE,
    %per-mode = symbol
%}

% THEME AND COLOR SETUP
\usetheme{CambridgeUS}
\usecolortheme[RGB={205,0,0}]{structure}
\setbeamertemplate{items}[triangle]
\setbeamertemplate{sections/subsections in toc}[square]

\newcommand{\quoted}[1]{
    \glqq#1\grqq
}

\title{I'm not yet getting the hang of this}
\author{Narusan}

\begin{frame}
    \frametitle{Blabla}
            \begin{itemize} 
                    \item {\color{black}{no bullet point}}
                     \item here neither                     
            \end{itemize}   
\end{frame}
\end{document}

enter image description here

I don't understand why, it used to work before in other presentations and I haven't really touched anything (I probably did, but nothing I'm aware of).

    Simple answer: Do not load enumitem! – TeXnician Jun 29 '18 at 17:17
  • @TeXnician But I need it for multiple reasons. Any way to get them with enumitem? – Narusan Jun 29 '18 at 17:20
  • But it will mess up beamer code, because the two are incompatible with each other. – TeXnician Jun 29 '18 at 17:21
  • @TeXnician Guess I'm having an XY Problem. My workaround was to use enumitem... – Narusan Jun 29 '18 at 17:24
  • @Narusan If your tex distribution is reasonable up-to-date, you don't need etoolbox – user36296 Jun 29 '18 at 17:25

The solution to your problem is not to load enumitem, because it's incompatible with beamer (see here and if you really want to risk it here).

Some further comments on your code:

  • inputenc with utf8 is no longer needed (April 2018's LaTeX format defaults to it)
  • you do not need to load etoolbox with beamer (it's loaded by default)
  • instead of your grouping around the \color use \textcolor, which even uses the grouped text you already have as argument

bullets

Code:

\documentclass{beamer}

\usepackage[ngerman]{babel}
\usepackage{svg}
\usepackage{tikz}
\usetikzlibrary{chains, positioning, shapes.symbols}

% THEME AND COLOR SETUP
\usetheme{CambridgeUS}
\usecolortheme[RGB={205,0,0}]{structure}
\setbeamertemplate{items}[triangle]
\setbeamertemplate{sections/subsections in toc}[square]

\newcommand{\quoted}[1]{
    \glqq#1\grqq

    \title{I'm not yet getting the hang of this}
    \author{Narusan}

    \begin{frame}
    \frametitle{Blabla}
    \begin{itemize} 
        \item \textcolor{black}{no bullet point}
        \item here neither                     
    \end{itemize}   
\end{frame}
\end{document}

If you really can't do without use the following (from here), but it will not remove all incompatibilities:

\usepackage{enumitem}
\setitemize{label=\usebeamerfont*{itemize item}%
    \usebeamercolor[fg]{itemize item}
    \usebeamertemplate{itemize item}}
