    I doubt we'll get a perfect triangle...I'd like a situation similar to gen IV[except for the Fire/Fighting]

    Subjugation is Liberation!
    Contradiction is Truth!
    These are the truths of the world! Surrender to these truths, you pigs in human clothing!"

    Probably because we already have a Grass-Type deer, so people naturally thought Xerneas would be Grass too, due to its deer-like appearance.

    This is a starter thread, though, not the legendary thread.

    My shinies. Just click the links~

    ~Shiny Banner 1~
    ~Shiny Banner 2~
    ~Shiny Banner 3~

    My shinies are not for trade or cloning.
    Shinies are not listed in order, for example the last shiny on the banner is not always the latest shiny I've obtained.
    Banner 1 made by Light Venusaur, thanks ^_^

    And normal because Stantler is Normal.

    I think that if Froakie's evos do grow clouds, they grow into stormclouds and he becomes Water/Electric. Sure, another Lanturn variant would be somewhat unoriginal, but we haven't had an Electric-type starter since Yellow version (unless you count spin-off games where we get Eevee as our starter, like Coliseum and Conquest).

    Perhaps, all the evolutions of the starters will have the same secondary type. If gamefreak can turn birds into fighter, why not frogs, foxes, hedgehogs into insects.

    Ugh I'm having a hard time choosing between Chespin and Fennikin. I had a Victini so I can work with Fire/Psychic, and I've never had a Grass/Dark before. It's going to be a case where I'll have to see the evolutions before making my decision >.<

    I think he meant the fact that Blaziken is a bird/chicken/whatever and yet it is a Fighting-type Pokémon.

    Plot twist: all of the starters will become fire/fighting.

    Ah my mistake but Blaziken was based of Chicken Fights was it not? so it was quite a smart choice of Pokemon for GF to make.

    Yep, I suppose it was. In fact, all three Fire/Fighting starters have plenty of reasons to justify the Fighting secondary type.

    You see, Emboar and Infernape have similar origins, both are based on characters from the "Journey to the West" novel. Infernape is based on Son Wukong, a monkey (which also serves as basis for the popular Dragon Ball character, Goku) and Emboar is based on Zhu Baije, other character, that looks like a pig. Both of them are fighters. Also, Fire/Dark would work fine too, considering that Zhu Baije isn't exactly what I would call an honorable person.

    I'm sorry, I just can't see a fat pig fighting a slim and quick monkey and holding its ground.
    I just don't see that happening.
    Also, Third Fire/Fighting starter in a row!

    You don't have to see anything :P I was just explaining Emboar's origins to you. Like it or not, Emboar has a reason for having the Fighting-type ^^ [and yes, it would have been better if it wasn't Fire/Fighting, but well, it is].

    It's not speed, Emboar is fat, and ugly, and the worst Fire Starter. Also, Infernape is a lot better than Emboar.

    There Attack stats aren't much different.
    Infernape=104
    Emboar=123

    I didn't even need to look that up .
    Apparently I was wrong with Infernape. Off by 4.

    Emboar isn't the "worst" starter, there isn't such a thing as a worst starter. That is just your opinion, DarkSword38. I prefer Emboar over Infernape and Blaziken, I like its design more and what you call "fat and ugly", I call "bulky and awesome". As far as Fire-type starters are concerned, it is quite nice, although the Cyndaquil line is still my favorite. :P

    39, Nyarlathotep. It is my opinion. Actually, it's not my least favorite Starter. It's just my least favorite FIRE Starter.

    yes, but there's a bad word that is also written (and pronounced) the same, hence the filter. You could have used "chicken" instead, it's still the same thing and is not a bad word.

    Chickens can be used for c*ck fighting, (That always made me ROFL when I was like, 7.)
    Monkeys do fight, and can attack other animals (urinating on big cats! :P)
    Boars are aggressive and....
    Foxes are shy.

    GF Logic: Since it's shy it needs to be a Fire/Fighting type! It'd make sense!

    But yeah, Fennekin's based on a shy animal, and foxes are magical.

    Fire/Psychic or Fire/Ghost please!
