Are people still doubting that we'll get Grass/Dark, Fire/Psychic, and Water/Fighting?


Because of stuff like this:

Yes. Yes I do. I'm taking nothing for truth until I see it.

I've used Grass starters a bunch. I've been using nothing but the Grass and Water starters ever since Gen II (though I skipped III) which is why I might Fennekin this time. But I've used and enjoyed all the Grass starters I've used.

People talk like Grass is one of the worst types but it does have its strengths. Resisting Water and Ground is amazing, being strong against Water, Rock, and Ground is good too, plus they have some very useful attacks that don't have equals like Leech Seed and Giga Drain. The downsides are the number of weaknesses and the types that resist it.

It's not the best type but it's not the worst either. It's leagues above Poison and Ice and still better than Bug I'd say. Poison is getting a small buff in that it's good against Fairy (inb4RUMOR!) but Bug and Ice really need some help.

It is the truth though. You just can't handle it, kid.

No, it's a rumor. It's only truth if Game Freak says it's true. And all hell will break loose if it does turn out to be false, because people would have gotten their hopes up yet again for something that didn't happen.

Everyone was so sure about Tepig, Oshawott, and Snivy. And look at what happened then. There's no sense at all to jump to conclusions.

Chespin is grass/ground... there's not a hint of dark in Chespin's design.

Where was it stated that he's Grass/Dark? It was never confirmed!


This.

What the hell is TC even talking about?

Chespin doesn't look like it will turn dark in the slightest.


"Despite having a curious nature that tends to get it in trouble, Chespin keeps an optimistic outlook and doesn't worry about small details."

Sounds like our friend could easily get into some tricky/sneaky/cheating business as it grows up. Which would match the dark-type's general M.O.

It doesn't even matter what Chespin looks like or how it acts. Turtwig and Mudkip are the only starters that have any indication as to what their final forms will be. Nothing about the other starters indicates their final types.

No one chooses the grass starters anyway.


I've chosen the grass starter for every gen except 2.

Um, hello? Guy here who is picking Chespin... and has had his mind made up on that since roughly four seconds after first seeing the Kalos starters... that would be me.
