Wait, people are STILL denying the Pokébeach rumor?


Parts of it are likely to be false to keep gamefreak off the dude's case.

Besides, when have ALL THREE starters ever been dual typed...?

*Looks at Gen 4*

Well, darn...

In terms of typing, that was the best gen. I thought after gen that we would actually have unique typing for each starter. Dam you gen 5, dam you

I think that fennekin is actually fire/psychic. I think that these should be the types.

Fennekin: Fire/Psychic
Chespin: Grass/Ground(or Rock)
Froakie: Water(could be poison too)

Pokemon X and Y are bringing in new type combinations like Flying/Fire(Talonflame) and Fairy/Water(Marill) and more so the type of the starters can be way different like fire/fairy or it can be be the regular fire/fighting. It is up to game freak.

Am I really gonna have to be the one that brings it up? Do I really have to be that guy? Fine...

Fennekin- Fire/Psychic (just like Ninetails)


Ninetales is pure Fire... not Fire/Psychic.

Fennekin will be fire/fighting. Wow people still resist to believe this.

Hey kids, Psychic/Fighting/Dark isn't a balanced starting triangle because Dark beats Psychic too well! Or something. But do you know what apparently is a balanced starting triangle?

Fennekin- Fire/Psychic (just like Ninetails)
Froakie- Water/Poison (like a poison dart frog, brightly colored)
Chespin- Grass/Fighting (probably the hardest to guess, just throwing it out there)


Even though Water/Poison isn't weak to Grass or Fighting.

Chespin - Grass/Rock (Physical based)
Fennekin - Fire/Ground (Special based)
Froakie - Water/Flying (mixed)

I will never understand this fandom.

Anyway, while it has been stated that parts of the Pokebeach leaks may have been deliberately false, Pokebeach actually says which parts those most likely are. Fire/Psy, Grass/Dark, and Water/Fight starters aren't one of them.

I think the most logical typing is:

Fennekin: fire/psychic
Chespin: grass/fighting
Froakie: water/dark

Then weaknesses aren't strong against strengths, but only strengths strong against weaknesses.

No offense, but the only one I could see working out on your list is Chespin. He does have a little brown on him, not that that means anything. Also, how the hell does a frog become a flying type? Meh, its not like my opinion means anything either


Never played 'The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker?' Believe me, you may be pleasantly surprised.
