New Starters Analyzed, Evidence of Dual Typing

Alright by now I'm sure you've watched the trailer for the new pokemon game. But lets take a closer look, shall we?

Starting with the grass starter, Chespin. They show him use 2 attacks. 1 grass, solar beam. 1 (seemingly) dark, swiping attack.

Fenneken, the fire starter. We see him use 2 attacks as well, 1 fire, flamethrower. And 1 psychic, what looks to be psywave.

Froakie, the water starter. We also see him use 2 attacks (no surprise). 1 water, water gun. and 1 attack that LOOKS to be fighting type.

You're probably wondering, okay, what does any of this even matter?

From this evidence, it can be deduced, that their 2nd or 3rd stages will be Grass/Dark, Fire/Psychic, and Water/Fighting. This would create a NEW triangle for the starters in a way that hasn't been done before.

So, who thinks I'm right? Who disagrees? Discuss.

I WANT you to be right, but I think my desire may be disrupting my ability to respond rationally.

I don't see them doing Psychic/Dark/Fighting trio in any sense. Because Dark nullifies Psychic and most they go for for starter trios resisting is a Not Very Effective, not an outright "it did nothing". It'd break the triangle.

People want a Psychic/Dark/Fight trio every since the fake 4th gen trio leaked a long time ago. And they will see evidence everywhere.

In every loss, in every lie, in every truth that you'd deny
And each regret and each goodbye was a mistake too great to hide.

I disagree with your points TC. I bet we we aren't getting those types.

Assuming those moves were level up moves rather than TMs or egg moves.
Even then Chespin's move looked like it could have been Psychic or Ghost while Froakie's move could have been Normal/
