I hate fire fighting starters now too but just want to point this out Pure grass Starters:3(and the of the two that aren't only one starts out as a dual type) Pure Water starters:all but empoleon
All but Empoleon?
Did you forget about Mudkip line (Water/Ground?)
eeeeooops ok all but him and mudkip line(who doesn't start as part ground,just saiyan)
The only starter in the 6 main series games to start off as a Dual-type is Bulbasaur --- "Whoa! Heads up, detecting high levels of space chickens." "No! Space chickens are a surgeon's worst nightmare."
Darumaka line is based on Daruma dolls. The only thing ape-like about Darmanitan is its gorilla length arms. --- "Hello. My Name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die." - Mandy Patinkin, [The Princess Bride]
