...is related to Spinda. It's gonna be Grass/Normal type. Watch it happen.

I hadream that it was Grass/Poison.

Makes sense when you think about it.

Hedgehog with poison quills? Yeah, I guess it does. I'd rather it have an underused type combo though, like Grass/Ground, Grass/Fighting, or Grass/Steel.

Same here.

I'm just saying that it does make sense...

I just hope it doesn't happen (though I'd prefer it over Fire/Fighting Fennekin)

You know, the more I think about it, the more I hope Chespin does evolve into a Grass/Ground type because it could be speedy to differentiate itself from Torterra. The only problem is that Fennekin would now have to evolve into Fire/Flying to avoid Chespin's new Ground typing, almost completely ensuring it would be terrible. Otherwise, there could be a reverse triangle with each starter hitting the other SE with one STAB.

With Grass/Ground, Froakie would have to end up Water/Ice or Water/Flying, which admittedly aren't usually good types. If Water/Ice, Fennekin would have to end up as Fire/Rock, Fire/Electric, or... Fire/Fighing... Water/Flying would force Fennekin to evolve into Fire/Rock or Fire/Electric, again. I think Fire/Electric is more favorable between the two. I avoided the Bug type in all these scenarios for obvious reasons.

I wonder, however, if people would actually be content with Grass/Ground, Fire/Electric, and either a Water/Ice or Water/Flying, for the starters?

What's interesting to note is that if Froakie became Water/Flying in this scenario, each starter would hit the starter they used to be weak against for x4 with the second STAB. I wonder, however, if people would actually be content with Grass/Ground, Fire/Electric, and Water/Flying starters?

You got Froakie wrong, Ice hits Grass/Ground for x4 damage, Flying only hits it for x2.
