    It's Pokemon... if a fish can become an Octopus anything can happen.

    I try to use at least one Pokemon that is new to me each time I play through a game.

    No, because it's a starter.

    I think that it's ridiculous that a starter pokemon isn't allowed to be a dragon. so what?

    Would be great if they made gen 7 where all starters final evo's were part dragon. Or make a triangle with it x/dragon, y/ice, z/whaatever type would fit

    It would work in that regard if they were all dragons but one on its own wouldn't work; especially with Charizard, Fire/Dragon. While they aren't completely balanced a lot of the time - Swampert X4 weak to grass for example, they are always super effected by one of the other starters in some way. Even Gen 4 with Empoleon's Steel typing Torterra was still able to do SE damage with ground moves etc.

    I came across this design for the starters final evos I have to admit, its one of my favorites

    ooooooh
    I hate that evolution of Froakie, it's just so big and grotesque. Also I want it to be the fastest starter of this generation...or of all of them.

    the justification is that it represents the evolution of artillery, so no a frog wouldn't become a dragon

    that would not make sense. they really have no connection to each other and i would hope that wouldn't happen.

    Let's say Fairy-Type is real, and following the Fairy>Dragon rumor.

    I'd like it if Fennekin would be Fire/Fairy. It has the elegance and grace to pull it off by looking mystical, yet not Tinkerbell-ish. Foxes are associated with Magic, yes?

    It'd have decent type coverage, SE on Steel, Ice, Bug, Grass, Dark, Fighting and Dragon, only being resisted by Fire. Its weaknesses to Poison, Water, Ground and Rock are crippling, but having a Electric-Type Move and Earth Power on it would be a great help to it.

    Good speculation, don't know if foxes are associated with magic, not here in the Netherlands i think..
    Foxes are fast, mysterious and smart. So it could work.

    Does anybody agrees that pure starters are fine aswell? Yet the designs of this gen just scream for a second type.

    yes it does actually
    Remoraid represents guns or revolvers and Octillery represents cannons and tanks.
    I thought everyone knew this by now >.>

    I assumed it was because it was an archerfish (which shoots targets with streams of water) combined with a remora. It doesn't look like a missile to me.

    my bad, it wasn't a missile. I remember now I will edit it, but the evolution does in fact represent the evolution of arms
    Remoraid is basically just a gun, to be specific a revolver, and Octillery represents other heavy artillery.
    I always mess that one up

    Maybe but dragons resist all three starter typings, unless the rest were dragons or ice types (which would only work on grass types dragons) they're a huge imbalance.


    It's time to return to the old, soaring back to Hoenn!

    Empoleon was still like that though. Grass was resisted by his steel typing.

    And yet Torterra got ground typing, keeping that triangle. Dragon is much harder to keep balanced because two out of the three starters would resist ice typing due to being fire/dragon and water/dragon and thus the only way the other starters could fight back is if they all were dragons.

    exactly. If they did do something like that, of course they would change the typings, so a triangle still remains.
    I am saying it is always possible for starters to become dragon, but it is highly unlikely that they will do it with these starters

    I want to either see solid typing or some new triangle that doesn't involve another fire/fighting. Unless they manage to royally mess up every single evolution, it'll be hard to beat these designs as is.
    I'm really hoping that Chespin ends up as a more defensive grass type though instead of the current trend for most (barring Torterra).

    That's Captain lead developer to you.

    What if Pignite and Emboar get changed to Fire/Fairy?

    Got that out of the way I doubt Dragon will ever be a typing on a final evolution starter, even with Fairy's immunity to Dragon.

    but blastoise can learn ice type moves so he can still have an advantage over dragon charizard... especially on gen 1 when there wasnt any usefull dragon type move, so even if charizard was dragon blastoise could harm him while char no... anyway thinks are as they are but dont give me the excuse thet they did it for balance cause pokemon is one of the most unbalanced games ever!!

    Fire resists ice, it'd only hit neutrally.
