Wait, are the starters really Water/Fighting, Fire/Psychic, Grass/Dark?

RAAAGH! FIGHTING/DARK/PSYCHIC IS NOT A BALANCED TYPE TRIANGLE!!

The only, ONLY other type triangle that works is Rock/Flying/Fighting!

Seriously, every time someone suggests Fighting/Dark/Psychic it makes me want to pull my hair out.


If they're secondary types, does it really matter that much?

and Grass/Ground/Poison works
and Fire/Steel/Rock works

but Fighting/Psychic/Dark is a terrible Triangle and People that think it's good shouldnt be allowed to post
They made a moon base to survey my standards but they have yet to make visual contact.

I don't get why people assume Aerial Ace means Dark and Fake Out means Fighting.


Besides that it isn't like Non-Dark and Non-Fighting and non-etc. types don't learn moves that have said types in them or available to their movepool.


But people are using the attacks they use as basis for their type assumptions :T


Well it's again starting speculation. That doesn't mean everyone thinks that way.

On that note AA is a move on so many Pokemon's move pools it's ridiculous.
Ignoring sheep. Best solution on CoD boards.

Seriously, It looks like Froakie is using Vacuum wave, Fennekin is using some sort of psychic move, and the dark colors of Chespin attack makes it look like it's using a dark move.

I mean 3 completely different types, which only works with Rock/Flying/Fighting.
Oddworld, Graffiti Kingdom, Supah Nario Bros, and Simtunes FTW!

So is the whole imbalance thing just that Dark is immune to Psychic? I don't see why that's a HUGE deal, you normally want to attack with a neutral attack instead one doing half damage anyway. As in, even if Dark took half damage from Psychic instead of being immune...you'd still not want to use a Psychic move on it anyway.

Granted it might make it harder in the early game against your rival but that's about it I think. If you can't raise up another Pokemon to take on your rival's starter that's your own fault I think. Plus I would think they'd be smart enough to give you another damage move that would work so you're not stuck with ONLY moves its immune to.

But anyway, I wasn't really suggesting this, just trying to confirm rumors.

They could be like some of the previous starters and not get their secondary type until they evolve.
