    Default Starter Pokemon

    I was thinking, all the starter Pokemon are Grass, Fire and Water types. I don't know if anyone else is thinking this, but it's a bit boring. Does anyone have any ideas why? And can anyone think of anymore starter combinations.

    I thought it is because the three types form a triangle, in which one is always better then one but worse against another.

    Prior to DP's release they were rumours that the starters would be Fighting/Psychic/Dark.

    Maybe a possibility would be Electric/Flying/Bug-Ground? (Final forms are often not single types - look at Venusaur, Charizard, Swampert, Blaziken, Infernape, Torterra, and Empoleon).

    Steel, Dark, and Normal don't create a triangle.

    No. I don't think you're getting it. The starters must create a triange, i.e. Grass is strong against Water, Water is strong against Fire, and Fire is strong against Grass. Kinda like Rock, Paper, Scissors.

    That's exactly what I said in the first post. Triangle.

    Poison, Ground and Grass make a combination.
    Electric, Water and Ground make a combination.
    Steel, Rock and Fire make a combination.

    There are plenty of possible combinations! No-one ever said you can't use fire, water and grass.

    You obviously didn't realize I wasn't talking to you.

    Also, Electric, Water, and Ground don't work since Electric has no effect on Ground. And I don't remember Fire being weak against Rock.

    Fire's weak to Rock. Ho-Oh and Charizard have a 4x weakness to it.

    And the one Luis just said would work... if we ever got a pure Flying Pokémon.

    You're forgetting that Psychic has no effect on Dark. It has to be perfectly balanced.

    Not that the Starters in DP follow that.
