Well, if it is true, then Fennekin will only take 1/4 the damage from fairies, so there's that for Fennekin fans. I still don't believe it, though. And, just a question, where did it say the source gave the names of the four new Pokémon?

On PokéBeach's front page.

Oh, okay, thanks. Now I'm going to add random stuff because just thanking you is too short a message.

Hallelujah! Apparently, there was a mix-up on the rumored starters' types. Chespin will evolve into a Grass/Dark and Froakie will be Water/Fighting. That is, if you believe the source.

Froakie I can see being Water/Fighting. Maybe one of those "Old frail" monks who then proceed to whoop the bad guys. (Final Evo better have a Stache or a beard, just saying).

Chespin being Grass/Dark? Im sorry, I just dont see it right now.

Praise be unto Hiro! I was pretty annoyed at most of the information at first, but it sounds a lot better now that the "actual" types are switched. I've been praying for Chespin to be Grass/Dark for as long as its been released.

And I can definitely see it being part Dark, a lot of fanart makes it seem like a dark and menacing mole.

Not to mention that it looks quite similar (imo anyways) to the Shiftry line, which was also Grass/Dark. Per usual, the more info that is released for this Gen, the more excited I'm becoming.

On a personal note, I think Fennekin is absolutely adorable and I'm glad that I can pick a Fire starter without it going Fighting later (assuming this is true).

I actually think even if all this info goes south, and it turns out to be bogus. We still don't have to worry about it turning into a fighting type. I think the head honchos have had to have gotten wind that it's a no-no for the hardcore fanbase I mean they have peoples who's sole job is to look into the public feedback and I think there are plenty of ridiculous stuff out there portraying our worry.

Agreed. To be honest, I wouldn't mind a Gen where the the starter types weren't Fire/Grass/Water at all. Like what about a Gen where the starters are purely Psychic/Dark/Fighting?

Or Ice? /trollface

We established Dark/Psychic/Fighting isn't possible as Dark is immune to Psychic.

But: Ice/Fighting/Flying?

It has a stable pattern.

PLANNING ON GETTING 1000 POSTS BEFORE OCTOBER 1ST. HELP ME BY MAKING NEW THREADS THAT I CAN SPAM IN


So, this forum just got a revamp, its now interesting, we have a few members, we have some games, we're about to open a Forum Shopping Center to buy Pokemon and Items... (If we get store clerks). We have a WEREWOLF game, and I know how much Psypoke likes Werewolf, so If you're itching to play a shorter game than usual, sign up.

And yet that's what we're getting this Gen, in reverse order.

But if you really want triangles, do what I did and just be lazy looking at this.

Would you like to have 4 Fire/Fighting starters in a row?

...I would, but that's just because I'm a massive troublemaker whose favorite beverage is tears.

Fire/Fighting is fine, people are just tired of the starter having it since it's been that way for the last three gens in a row.
