Why is everyone expecting each starter to have a second type?

I mean, fennekin looks like it's definitely going to get a second type, but why chespin and froakie? It's very possible that neither one will get a secondary type like in gen 5, or in gen 2 where none of the starters got a secondary type. I'm not saying that they shouldn't get secondary types, I'm all for that, but this board seems to get their hopes up so high and end up crushed when they don't get what they want.

I'm just saying to be prepared if one, two, or all three starters don't get a secondary type.

Because we have had extremely consistent leaks that have mentioned that the starters will have specific type combinations. If the leak had not been consistent, or wasn't even true at all, nobody would even care. However, that is not the case.

Came in about to say this.

Sure Pokebeach has gotten some mishaps, like misspelling of English names and Fairy being resisted by Poison instead of Psychic. but so far they've been spot on.

Because no one prefers mono-types to dual types. Secondary types rarely make the Pokemon worse.

Generation 30: The first time you see this, copy it into your own signature (on any forum) and add one to the generation number. Social experiment.

Cause of the leaker at Pokebeach who's been right at just about nearly everything he predicted, not 100% of the time mind you but he's been very accurate.

That's the way it was when the Unova starters were revealed. Everybody was adamant that they would be Dark (Snivy), Psychic (Tepig) and Fighting (Oshawott).

And what did we end up with? Two single types and our 3rd Fire/Fighting in a row.

But this time we've been having very consistent leaks, one of them predicting the dark/psychic/fighting double triangle to happen.

I don't think you know what "expecting" means

Sure, except that back then we didn't have leaks saying that the types would be like that. So this is completely different.
