I personnaly think he might have accidently confused dark with rock, I just can't imagine how Chespin would turn dark.


For the eleventy billionth time, not weak to Fire or Psychic, so if Fennekin does become Fire/Psychic, Chespin will not become Grass/Rock.

Grass/Dark
Fire/Psychic
Water/Fighting

Works perfectly because you have Water beating Fire, Fire beating Grass, Grass beating Water, and then Dark beating Psychic, Psychic beating Fighting and Fighting beating Dark.

Grass/Rock upsets the balance.


Would be the first time they used an actual immunity in the lineup though. Grass/Steel would have been more consistent as far as balanced resistances.

Nuh uh. You're setting up a reverse triangle (Psychic beats Fighting, Fighting beats Steel), but not only does Grass/Steel have no STAB advantages over Fire/Psychic, you don't even get the benefit of Fire/Psychic having a double weakness to abuse like Torterra did.

Besides, you're complaining that GRASS!!!/Dark has an immunity to a STAB of FIRE!!!/Psychic. oh no whatever will fennekin do how will fennekin ever be able to hit GRASS!!!/dark chespin when chespin is immune to psychic oh poor fennekin.

Fighting isn't my favourite type, but as long as Froakie looks good in his final form I'll pick him regardless.

Nothing is confirmed yet, they still could turn out Fire/Fighting, Grass and Water for what we know.


No, No. NO... The LAST thing we need is yet another Fire/Fighting starter >_>


I never got this complaint. We've had three pure grass (Meganium, Sceptile, Serperior) and three pure water (Blastoise, Feraligatr, Samurott) and I don't ever see anyone *****ing about that.
However history remembers me, it shall only remember a fraction of the truth.

Only when you address the secondary typings alone. When you address both types:

Fire/Psychic vs Grass/Rock = Fire>Grass and Rock>Fire, Psychic is neutral
Water/Fighting vs Fire/Psychic = Water>Fire, Psychic>Fighting
Grass/Rock vs Water/Fighting = Grass>Water, Water>Rock

I think you should take your own advice about taking the two types together.

Fire > Grass, but Fire /> Grass/Rock.
