Dark/Psychic/Fighting is such a stupid concept.

This topic wasn't even about starters, it was about a triangle. Triangle can refer to any three pokemon, not just starters.

Oh, well in that case, TC is insulting GameFreak itself. What do I mean? Black and White 1. Opelucid City. Triple/Rotation Battle Trainers.

One uses Simisage, Simisear, and Simipour. Grass, Fire, and Water.

The other uses Elgyem, Mienfoo, and Pawniard. Psychic, Fighting, and Dark(/Steel).

What was that, TC? You think GameFreak is terrible and probably smells bad?

It really doesn't matter that Dark is immune and not resistant to Psychic, if you pick the Fire starter, are you really going to use it and use it's Fire moves against your rival's starter? No, you won't, and that's the only situation where this supposed imbalance would ever really come up.

Exactly. Early on all starters are basically equal, by the time they start learning STAB moves you've got access to other Pokemon and TMs. If you take a Psychic-type knowing only Psychic attacks into a battle against a Dark-type, you're a moron and deserve the whiteout.

Steel does resist Psychic, yes, but this is irrelevant on Pawniard unless you use Miracle Eye. And yes, Steel is weak to Fighting! Which makes Pawniard just as weak to Fighting as Swampert is to Grass!

So...yeah. Triangle. Pawniard beats Elgyem beats Mienfoo beats Pawniard. Yay!

Doubly true if you're talking about dualtypes, as most of us trying to add these to the starters are. As I've said before (not in this topic), do you guys whine that Flash Fire is a cheap ability that needs to be removed from the series just because it stops the rampage of a player who picked the Fire-type starter and loads him up with nothing but Fire-type moves? Did you whine when your Pokemon Yellow Pikachu couldn't aim for Rhyhorn's horn and lost to a weakling Onix?
