What's with all these Fennekin's fan evos being Fire/Psychic

Just because it learns a psychic move? We all know its second form looks like a witch so it's obvious that its final form will be Fire / Fairy

Because of the leak. And it's not confirmed to learn just one Psychic move, it's confirmed it learns at least three.

So long as it doesn't try to steal any more of Ninetales' thunder by becoming Fire/Ghost or something.

Why do people keep saying this? What the hell do fairies have to do with witches?

Magic. Fairies and Witches are both magic users in many tales.

Just remember "Pokemon Logic".

It learns Psychic, Psybeam, and Psyshock. Things that learn all 3 of these are pretty much all Psychic *inb4smeargle*

there might be an exception here and there, but there's a clear heavy emphasis on Psychic moves, and unlike, say, Torchic or Piplup and Flying moves, there's no blatant animal association (in those two cases, Birds peck at things, so naturally, it fits they get Peck despite not being flying type)

EDIT: Just to prove the point further, list of things that learn Psyshock (a confirmed move Braixen knows), naturally assume "And their evolutions" apply (in some cases, Pre-evos apply too, but whocares/10) :

Via Level:
Drowzee
Exeggutor
Spoink
Gothita
Solosiss

Via TM03:
Clefairy
Ninetails
Psyduck
Abra
Slowpoke
Starmie
Mr. Mime
Jynx
Porygon
Mewtwo
Mew
Togepi
Natu
Espeon
Girafarig
Stantler
Lugia
Ralts
Meditite
Lunatone
Solrock
Baltoy
Chimecho
Metang
Latios
Latias
Jirachi
Deoxys
Bronzor
Uxie
Mesprit
Azelf
Cresselia
Arceus
Victini
Munna
Woobat
Audino
Sigilyph
Elgyem
Meloetta


Bolded are Pokemon who are both not-Psychic, nor do they evolve into a Psychic type
Arceus I itallicized because technically, he's often not Psychic, BUT he can be and thus doesn't really deserve the same classification as things that are legitimately Non-Psychics


Not only is that a vast majority of Psychics learning it vs. Non-psychics, many of the Non-Psychics are those Normal types that get really wonky movesets like Clefairy, one is Psyduck who learns a lot of Psychic attacks anyway, and Ninetails who I think has the whole "Psychic Fox" thing Japan has...

...which brings to the other reason people think Fire/Psychic for Fennekin's final Evolution:

Japanese lore would fit with a Psychic type Fox. I don't know details, so don't want to shoot myself in the foot; I'll have someone else field this.
