This poll is now closed.
Obviously, people are posting tons of these Topics.
Instead of people posting their own topic on what their theory is, I would like to
see multiple ideas in one topic.

In the poll are the 3 most well known rumored dual types.
Try to explain why you think that way.


For me, I would probably say that the Fairy/Fighting/Steel triangle.

First is Braixen, while the design looks like a Witch, with a floating broom,
the name seems to be based off of Braise and Vixen. Vixens are known to be mythical creatures. That makes me think Fairy instead of Psychic..

Frogadier, in both Japanese and English versions, the name comes from
a rank. Japan version will be based off of a yakuza. Yakuzas tend to fight
for their own territory. English version seems to be based off of a brigadier. Those
people are generally trained to fight.

Finally, there's Quilladin, which most people agree is derived from Paladin.
Paladins are knights. Knights are known to wear steel armor.
Quilladin is also known as the Armoured Pokemon, which also helps that idea that Quilladin could be Steel type.



So, what do you think is the most likely dual type?

Fire/Psychic, Water/Fighting, Grass/Steel.
Why is it so hard for people to believe that maybe... Just MAYBE... There isn't a double triangle.

I really want Froakie to become Water/Ghost just because it really doesn't seem like a possible Dark or Fighting type to me.

I know you're trying hard to incorporate Fairy into a double triangle, but it doesn't work: Fire/Fairy is not weak to Steel. That little bit of speculation needs to stop.

Besides, you're ignoring a leak that has managed to get nearly everything correct.

1. The leak.

2. Because you're very deliberately setting up 2/3 of a double triangle with that setup. 9_9

I have been leaning towards the first option, but tc you have made me question myself and I think I am leaning towards your fairy theory the most now as I believed quilladin to be steel, and froakies second form reminds me of toxicroak

Pretty sure about Fire/Psychic due to the confirmed move pool so far, others I don't know.

A "vixen" is a female fox, not a mythical creature... Perhaps you are thinking of "veela" from Harry Potter,? I can't imagine what you're thinking of otherwise.
If you're thinking of "The Teumessian Vixen," calling all vixens mythical because of that would be like calling all boars mythical because of "The Calydonian Boar."
(I'm not trying to be mean here, I'm just sayin')

At this point, I can see either a reverse or a reinforced triangle happening.

Either the reverse path:

Grass/Steel
Fire/Fairy
Water/Fighting

or the Reinforced path:

Grass/Fighting
Fire/Psychic
Water/Dark

I'm hoping for the reverse path, but I've got a feeling it'll take the reinforced path instead.
