pokemonfreak97 posted... Maybe Dark, Psychic and Fighting as the new starters' types. (now or when we get new starters) Fire, Water, Grass is getting boring.
You do realize why they use the Grass/Fire/Water starters, right?
If not, then here's why: Grass/Fire/Water is the most basic element cycle. The relationship between Grass/Fire/Water is easy to understand, as their relationship can be applied to real-life scenarios: Water extinguishes Fire, Fire burns Grass, and Grass absorbs Water. Because of how easy it is to understand, newcomers who don't know their type matchups yet can still figure out who beats who. The relationship between Dark/Psychic/Fighting isn't nearly as clear, if there even is a way to relate those types, so it's harder for newcomers to figure out what beats what.
Gamefreak is going to stick to Grass/Fire/Water, whether you like it or not.
