Fire/Fighting is actually not that bad

It removes the rock weak but at the time time doesn't give Fire a devastating Quad weak to water/Ground that a Fire/Ground or Fire steel would have. Plus fire+fighting is an amazing attack combination.

I think after Emboar it's pretty clear Gamefreak is just doing it to troll us.

It's not because it's bad...it's because it has been used so many times in a row that it gets dull

Yeah, but Infernape already achieved everything a Fire/Fighting type can ever achieve with the base stat limitations imposed on a starter Pokemon (outside of broken abilities like Speed Boost). The only way another Fire/Fighting starter can go is down, as perhaps evidenced by Emboar.

If GameFreak is so intent on the Fire starter being neutral to Stealth Rock, they need to change it up. Bring on the Fire/Ground and Fire/Steel, quad weaknesses be damned! Actually, I can see Fennekin possibly evolving into a Fire/Ground type...

You're missing the point, OP. People don't care how good or bad the combination itself is. We're just tired of having Fire/Fighting starters three times in a row.

Your opinion differs from mine, therefore you're trolling.

Fire/Fighting is a good dual type, but as people said. It gets a bit dull getting the same thing every gen.

It'd be nice if we got something new/unique again. Like Empoleon and Torterra back then.

well most people were just disappointed by emboar. bad movepool and stat spread, that killed fire/fighting for a lot of people i think.

Or nerf it so it will be equivalent to spikes that affect flying and levitating pokemon.
