Having a lightning type starter would be impossible, as there is no lightning type.

This statement is false.

I would like a starter to be part electric. It's my favorite type.

However, don't do it on a fire type, because that would=X4 Ground weakness and that's not good.


It'd be cool on a grass or water starter though (and would probably guarantee me getting said starter).

There is in the TCG. Electric is called Lightning there.
And Dark is called Darkness and Steel is called Metal.

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

didn't pokemon yellow have a pikachu starter?
#8SlimeStackPosted 1/13/2013 10:53:55 AM
Yellow broke a lot of the rules in order to be more like the anime. It's unlikely they'd do that again.
