Should the starters have a dual type with an opposite triangle?

It's not necessary, but I'd be fine if they did it without it feeling totally forced.
I'm not easily impressed; I'm usually oblivious to whatever's in front of me.

Fennekin being a firefighter would make the most sense but i'd like more originality. At the very least he should be a special attacker for variety.

'Should' is not the word I'd choose, but whatever. I am fed up with people whining about ther precious Dark/Psychic/Fighting preferred types.

The only possible way you could add Fighting/Flying/Rock to the starter triangle, in the opposite direction to the original triangle, without breaking the original starter triangle, is Fire/Fighting. Otherwise, you get a Water/Flying that isn't weak to Grass or a Grass/Rock that isn't weak to Fire.

Do you really want to push Fire/Fighting on people?

That's part of the reason Psychic/Dark/Fighting is such a popular secondary triangle - it doesn't interfere with Grass/Fire/Water at all! You can match them up however you like, so Fire/Fighting isn't a necessity to make it work!

The fourth gen almost did a reverse triangle thing - you had to put Ice Beam on Empoleon to make it work, but Torterra did have a dual-weakness (and Ice fits a penguin well) so it still kinda worked.

Like to have a triangle without massive advantages. What other triangles can you think of?
