    The main reason why its always fire, water, and grass is because its a perfect balance. They are each strong and weak against something and there is no pokemon that are immune to these moves (not counting abilities)

    No it's not, that like saying Normal Water or Normal Psychic are pure as well. Normal is it's own type not just no type. So it counts as dual type.

    I didn't mean literally. I meant Normal/Flying is equivalent to pure Flying.

    That sounds better.

    That's kind of a random combination. Were you planning on making a double trio? Because if so, you failed horribly.

    The reason I chose what I did was because if it was Grass/Rock, then the Fire strength would cancel out, and both the Grass and Water starters would be good against the Fire one... Although that's how it works for Sinnoh as well. >_>
    Nyeh.

    4x weakness and it totally gets killed? Some of the most overused Pokemon have 4x weaknesses. If the Pokemon have good enough stats and a large moveset, it'd do well. Don't let first impressions fool you.

    Yes it does. On top of that, Fire/Poison doesn't really make much sense.

    I was talking about how the Fire's final evo is weak to both of the other final evos.

    Poisonous, fire-breathing monster. I'm pretty sure that picture isn't right. It's close enough though. The chimera doesn't have wings and it doesn't have a dragon's head on its body.

    A combination I've always thought would work is Rock/Fighting/Flying

    It forms the Rock-Paper-Scissors pyramid perfectly and in both directions. Also, all three types are neutral to itself. ALSO, all three types are physical.

    Hooray for the Grass/Water/Fire combo we'll get next generation.

    That doesn't exactly lend itself to being a poison-type.

    Um.. How does that prove anything? o.0
    Just because they didn't do something this generation doesn't necessarily mean that they won't next gen. Yeah, they probably won't, but this doesn't really PROVE it.
    I mean, I thought that there was going to be a clearly defined night/day feature in 3rd gen. like there was in 2nd, but there wasn't, so...
    It's not going to happen you can tell it won't we have had four generations and all were Water/Fire/Grass there won't be a dark/Psychic/fighting or anything else you can already tell.

    Yes that is a Female Dino Charge Red. It's a FanFic thing

    For the main games, no, I am rather fond of grass fire and water, but for a spinoff game like colloseum, or possibly the 3rd game like yellow, emrald, and platinum it would be plausible. It would be intresting and whatever starter types they put in, I'm still going to buy it so it doesn't matter.

    I will laugh if they make a dragon trio starters.

    Two of the "third games" you mentioned - Emerald and Platinum - had no difference in the starter Pokémon, which should tell you what you need to know, and the other - Yellow - isn't actually a third game.

    Blue was the original third game of the first generation, keep in mind, and had much more in common with what we expect from third versions today, like an improved game engine, higher quality sound and new sprites. Yellow was, equally, a vehicle to do a game with anime material (following Pikachu, Team Rocket duo, etc) and a means to squeeze one last use out of the R/G/B template and maintain Pokémon's presence on store shelves until G/S hit and is a concept that, tellingly, hasn't been reused since.

    Yellow gets wrongly lumped in with Crystal, Emerald and Platinum because of the role it played in North America and the rest of the world.

    I'm used to the way the starters are now and I like the types given to you at the beginning, especially since I always choose the water types. So, No, I would like them to stay the same and don't think they should change.
