Hm. So Chespin will be Grass/Dark? I can live with that.
Froakie being Water/Fighting, huh? I'm a little tired right now, so I'm just gonna leave you guys with that info and the word "Poliwrath" and let you all work out the potential jokes and stuff for yourselves.
If it's any consolation, Keldeo is kinda hampered by the fact that it has no attacks.
I did forget that. Yeah, that Hidden Power reliance. It's extremely likely that Froakie will have access to Ice Beam so if it does end up being special then it will definitely have that over Keldeo. It would want Aura Sphere though, otherwise it will be tough with Focus Blast if there's no new special Fighting moves...
Froakie should be a fast Physical attacker so I think he will be different enough from Keldeo to see him used. Poliwrath on the other hand... *plays worlds smallest violin*
Yeah, I love Poliwrath so it would make me sad to see him so outclassed. But, I'm putting aside my bias as I am really interested in seeing a fast and powerful physical Water/Fighting Pokemon. I love it when GameFreak takes an existing type combo (particularly rare ones) and gives it a new spin.
