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I skipped gen V in terms of competitive battling so my knowledge may be outdated (I was competitive in gens 3 and 4) but grass/steel doesn't seem like good typing.
