Talonflame is Fire-Flying?

Granted I already knew this but it abruptly stops the trend of Normal-Flying beginners. Unless, if my speculations are correct, we get an actual
3-stage-flyer that wasn't revealed.

It's impossible to say if Fletchling is the early-game bird at this point, but if he is, he wouldn't be the first early-game tradition to get an unusual type upon evolution (Bibarel).

Also, not all of the early-game Normal/Flying birds are three-stagers; Spearow, Hoothoot, and Taillow are all two-stagers.

Wingull was also the first early bird to break the trend of being normal flying so it's not like talonflames revolutionary

It's not Normal/Flying before it evolves, though, and it coexists with Taillow, so it's a little more arguable as to whether it fits the pattern.

Only problem with this pokemon. We already know its gonna be crappy in multiplayer. Stealth rocks have already shown us that for charizard.

Assuming Stealth Rocks don't get nerfed and are still relevant in the sixth gen.

Well gamefreak does supposedly support the meta game so its not too unlikely.

If they made a whole new type just to nerf Dragon, I'll facepalm if they don't nerf Stealth Rock in some way.

You do know that SR is not the end-all thing for tiers right? Volcarona, Yanmega, etc. are high tiers despite SR. Stop using Charizard for reference, ffs. Charizard is terrible even without SR.
