If something is unconfirmed, Serebii will tell you that. Serebii is saying here that the starters are monotype because it is a fact that's printed on the official Pokémon site.


So credit the official pokemon site, not serebii. Just saying.


I'll credit the person who informed me. <.<


I just checked serebii out and all they say is "they presume" they are grass/fire/water. They have no proof either.


"Nintendo has sent out some new details regarding Pokémon X & Y. Specifically, it has confirmed that the types of Chespin, Fennekin and Froakie will be pure Grass, Fire and Water respectively."


"Nintendo has sent out some new details reguarding Pokémon X & Y. Specifically, all of the starters have dual types."

See, I can do it too.

Pretty unclear statement.

Can either mean that the starters and their evolutions will be pure, or just the starters' base form.

Are you saying that Serebii isn't allowed to post information now?

The official site updated. Serebii posted the news.

And you're complaining about it?

All that post from serebii said was that Fennekin was the fire starter, Froakie was the water starter, and Chespin was the grass starter, because that wasn't confirmed before. And that unlike Bulbasaur, all the starters would have one type. It never said later evolutions wouldn't gain a second type.

I assumed they meant the entire lines, not just the first forms.

Serebii quoted his website, where he posted information with a source. You're quoting crap you pulled out of your ass.

Huh. I am no where near a Pokemon aficionado. Has that happened before? Where an evolution adds another element to said Pokemon in terms of starters? Or this may all be linked in some way to the whole chromosome thing. Maybe the baddies in this gen want to make the pure elements impure?


Assuming by "element", you actually meant "type":

Charmeleon to Charizard added Flying.
Torchic to Combusken added Fighting.
Mudkip to Marshtomp added Ground.
Turtwig to Grotle added Ground.
Prinplup to Empoleon added Steel.
Chimchar to Monferno added Fighting.
Tepig to Pignite added Fighting.

In fact, the only generation where all three starters retained their exact typing, was Second Generation.

Turtwig to Grotle was still Grass.
It was when it became Torterra that it got Ground as well.
