6th gen Starters! what should there 2nd type be?

#1SarojPollardPosted 3/18/2013 2:55:29 AM
I don't get why people want the starters to have dark, psychic, fighting as their second type, I would be fine if they were but
chespin would be weak against
Fire, ice, fighting, flying, 4x bug, poison

fennekin would be weak against
rock, water, ground, ghost, dark
and I don't want another fire starter weak to stealth rocks

im ok with froakie being fighting
but it would be weak to grass, electric, flying, and psychic

I just don't seem them being used to a lot competitively if their typing was this
but bare with me if their typing was (grass/steel, fire/ground, and water/flying)
they all will only have 2 weakness each
chespin would have over 10 resistance, and could be switch in on poison attacks
fennekin could be switch in on electric attacks and froakie could be switch in on ground moves

as well grass/steel, fire/ground, and water/flying are one of the best defensive types as well
the link at the bottom shows a list of the top 50 best defensive typing and guess what 3 types made it and which 3 didn't lol

Ohes noes! We can't have a Pokemon that has weaknesses! Surely the entire world would end if our Pokemon had weaknesses!

Not all Pokemon are going to be competitive, you know.

Look, Fire is weak to Rock, so there are only so many type combos for Fennekin not weak to Stealth Rocks - Fighting (which everyone is sick of), Ground, and Steel are the only options. Of those, only Ground really strikes me as especially likely.

You're selecting types based on silly criteria is the problem. Even if the Pokemon were deliberately being made to be competitive, remember that Celebi has seven weaknesses and is OU; Sableye has zero and is UU.

It's like all those people who make up their own Pokemon and give them Levitate - not because the Pokemon has any business Levitating, but because they would be weak to Ground otherwise, and we can't possibly let our beloved fan creations be weak to Ground! (Hey, Ground-types need something to hit too!)

Also, I already explained why your type combos are unlikely in another topic.

cuz celebi has the stats and move pool to back it up.
like I said earlier id be fine with any type they chosen
id just prefer these more than any other

any type can be good if it has the good stats and move pool

I wish more Fakemon would focus on these rather than typing. I rarely every see any Fakemon where people say "It's typing is unremarkable, but what really makes it good as this signature move or this stat distribution..." or something like that. That's what I try to do with all of my Fakemon anyway. Everyone is always telling me that Ghost/Psychic is terrible typing as though I should care...
