    I won't lie, if Fennekin does somehow end up being Fire/Fighting type, I'll be the one dying of laughter out of the sheer irony of it all as Fennekin's extreme popularity drops in mere seconds simply because of a dual typing that has been around for three generations in a row. But I have to agree, I am also getting tired of the typing by now, as much as I love Infernape and to an extant, Emboar.

    But in all seriousness, I don't really think Fennekin will be Fire/Fighting. A lot of fans are theorizing that it will be Fire/Psychic. Of course that's just going to make people complain that "Oh great, it's even more similar to Victini now."

    I would applaud Game Freak if they made the final stages of all starters pure-typed as well.

    According to an update on Serebii, the first stage starters are all confirmed to be pure Grass, Water, and Fire. Nothing to shocking there, since the types can obviously change when they evolve. I pretty much expected them to be pure types at first.

    That's only if you count Darmanitan's Zen Mode, and that forme is only possible with its Hidden Ability. A regular Darmanitan is always Fire/Fighting. So in that sense, the only true Fire/Psychic type we have now is Victini.

    *Fire, not Fire/Fighting, but I guess it's not that important as it has nothing to do with the point you were making.

    Actually, every single starter but Bulbasaur has been pure-typed in its first stage.

    I'm saying Fire/Psychic is better than Fire/Fighting... it hasn't been used as a starter... Darmantin-Z does count as does Rotom's forme's... I do say Grass/Dark Fire/Psychic and Water/Fighting...

    I was right about the worldwide release thing (and it was a random guess) can't waiit to see the new pokemon.. if Ash does get one of them they flippen evolve! seriously he still has Oshawott and Snivy!

    Fire/Psychic could be a good idea as Psychic attacks are Super-effective against Fighting-types. However, Grass/Fighting, Fire/Psychic, and Water/Dark could make sense, as Grass<Fire<Water, and Fighting<Psychic<Dark.

    Chespin: No idea, but it will be the coolest.
    Fennekin: Bipedal and elegant.
    Froakie: Fat frog king with a sweet mustache.

    Type wise i think they will keep their monotyping.

    These starters really blew me away this time. I remember the Gen V starters getting loads of stick and I don't like Oshawott or Snivy even now. I didn't even like Tepig that much after I saw Emboar. This time around the starters look really good though. I am not fussed on Chespin but I am never usually fussed on the grass type, Snivy just took the biscuit there. Froakie looks awesome and I fell in love with Fennekin right from the start. My mind will be made up by their evolutions and I really hope they don't screw Fennekin or Froakie up. In the trailer there's a shot of Fennekin using what looks like a Psychic move which made me happy - looks like the reign of Fire/Fighting is well and truly over. I also really hope they don't miraculously teach Fennekin to walk on two legs or I'll have to go with Froakie, which will be sad because another Fire Fox is welcome on my team any day.

    Probably due to its overexposure. I know your feeling, out of the three new starters, Fennekin is definitely my least favorite.

    That and the whole fire fox idea is way overdone.

    Of the fanart that we've seen so far, these ones are probably my favorites/what I would like to see.

    Chespin (All three are actually really good in my opinion):

    Yup, me too.


    I never liked speculative mon-fanart, Pokemon has some design-phylosophy none can mimic.
