Why Do People Want Chespin To End As Grass/Steel?

#1Tasty_SoupPosted 9/21/2013 11:11:31 AM
I just don't get it. I REALLY want the grass starter to not be the worst starter this gen (and grass is never my first choice), and giving him steel gives him x4 weakness to fire, which is a common attack type, so wouldn't grass/fighting be preferred?

I skipped gen V in terms of competitive battling so my knowledge may be outdated (I was competitive in gens 3 and 4) but grass/steel doesn't seem like good typing.

Because I don't care about being viable in competitive
I just want him to turn into a badass knight thing

No idea, first time i've heard of this to be honest.

From it's current moveset i think it'll be Grass/Rock but that's just me.

Personally i don't care what it turns out to be, i just want all three of the starters to have decent looking third evos.

From a handful of topics I've read, people are expressing an interest in grass/steel to fight the knight theme.

Here is one example (the most recent one I have found and thus could remember)

Grass/Steel is an absolutely fantastic typing.
