Why can't Litleo not simply keep being a Normal/Fire type? Why does it HAVE to get a 2nd unique type like that!?


Fire/Normal < Fire/Anything Else.

Because that's just...boring.

Fire/Poison hasn't been done yet (IIRC) and if Litleo was fire/poison, he'd be more viable competitively. He wouldn't take damage from poison/toxic spikes, take reduced damage from SR, and ground wouldn't be super effective against him.

Fire types just have it bad =/

Because anything /normal is a horrible typing? Not to mention its boring as hell.

You are way off.

It would still take damage from poison(albeit reduced damage), yes it would be immune to toxic spikes. It would take the same damage from Stealth Rock(where did you get the idea that Poison was resistant to rock?), and Ground would be 4x effective against it(Ground is strong against Poison).

One of the pros of Fire/Poison typing is that its a great fairy counter. Fire resists fairy moves, and Poison is strong against Fairy pokemon, even Fairy/Steel pokemon.

Personally, I prefer the idea of a split evolution. Litleo would be able to evolve one of two ways- either into a Fire/Normal lion, or a Fire/Poison manticore. That way, we each have a say in what we get out of our Litleo, and everybody's happy.
