    By your logic...why is Fennekin hitting Kirlia with a Psychic move? Shouldn't it be using a Dark type move? And do you remember Gen V's animation for Aerial Ace?


    Looks familiar doesn't it?

    Also...just because a pokemon is using a move, doesn't mean that it's guaranteed to be that type.

    True, i see where you are coming from. I guess only time will tell. Perhaps the starters won't have a secondary type.

    I hope the starters have secondary types. In terms of types, I think generation IV did the best for the starters. Giving them second types gave them an edge to the starter they were weak to (Torterra could use ground moves on Infernape, Infernape could use fighting moves on Empoleon, etc.). It would be nice to get that interesting combination again. You think this month's CoroCoro will release more info about the starters? There was a picture of them on the cover of the magazine, unless they are just there to represent Pokemon XY as a whole.

They must find the cause of the disappearances of the legendary pokemon or the world would be thrown into disarray.

    The secondary types ought to be.

    Water/Fighting
    Grass/ psychic
    Fire/Dark

    But the true typings will always be

    Fire/Fighting
    whatever
    whatever

    Froakie....well I can't really think of anything
    if fennekin was deaf, how would it take orders during battle?

    Maybe it can read it's trainer's mind? It likely is a Psychic type (or will be when it evolves).

    The Grass and Water starters look neat. I'm thinking I'll use the Grass. The Fire is of no interest to me until we learn if it's dual type or not. If it's another Fire/Fighting I probably won't even play this Gen.

    You're not gonna play a game just because you don't like the typing of one Pokemon?

    To be fair, four Fire/Fighting starters in a row is extremely uncreative and off putting. Three was bad enough, I didn't even touch Emboar this gen because it was another generic Fire/Fighting.

    I honestly think Gamefreak is just trolling us by showing us Fennekin using a psychic move. I'm betting it was using a move like Me First or Copycat and Fennekin was just using one of that Kirlia's moves against it. I wouldn't put it past Gamefreak and I think it's a little too early to call it psychic, especially since no one would purposely use a move like confusion against a Kirlia. :P

    That's what really bothered me about Emboar as well. If GF really wants to give one of the staters a Fighting type that bad in the new games then they should definitely make Chespin Grass/Fighting for a bit more variety.

    If Fennekin was using Copycat or Me First to counter Kirlia, I'm pretty sure they would have put the animation of Copycat of Me First to show it before Fennekin use the "pink" move. Or else it would be unrealistic to show this to fans because that could be a major feint. I'm not saying that I never thought about the possibility, but it would be out of minds to think of it. But I admit. Why would Fennekin use such a move against Kirlia ?

    If the only intention is to show the move, then the only thing that matters is that the move affects the target (and thus shows the animation), regardless of whether the move deals super effective, neutral, or not very effective damage.

    I find it amusing I seem to be in an extreme minority like the tepig line(just judging from quite a few comments in this). Granted I agree that I don't want the firefox to evolve into something with fighting type charactaristics.What would be the reaction be if Fenekin was a pure fire in its evolved forms?

    Rather Pure Fire than Fire/Fighting for me, but I would prefer it to be Fire/Psychic. And I want the other two to have Types not yet used for Starters (or at least, that Type of starter). Chespin as Grass/Dark would be awesome, and Froakie... um... Water/Fighting or Flying or... I don't know.

    But no Fire/Fighting. The Fire/Fighting Pkmn are cool and all, but I'm so tired of it.
    Is apparantly Dragon Type in the Friend Safari. Neat.

    i have a feeling that it is fire/psychic
    i mean that move he did in the trailer wasn't growl the kirlia took damage
    yeah ninetales could learn psychic moves but the extent of it was zen headbutt and extrasensory
    that move in the trailer looked like either psychic or confusion and no ordinary fire type can learn that

    Pokemon can always learn off type moves so I think it is a moot point deciding if it is dual type based on a move it used. For example: Tepig learns smog and Chimchar learns acrobatics. Since Fennekin is based off of a desert fox I wouldn't be surprised if it was fire/ground. I'm not ruling out fire/psychic at all though. Japanese foxes always have crazy powers.

    I'm leaning towards wanting to use Fennekin though my decision may change depending on what type it is (Fire + ?) and also what it's evolutions may be.
    It it turns out to be Fire/Fight then I will be a little disappointed; that combo is getting a little stale now.
    Also if it's evolutions turn it into an ugly beast then I will not be best pleased!

    a Pokemon's design is usually the deciding factor for who I pick as a starter...and this is the first generation where I've been totally disappointed with the water-type I've never cared much for real-life frogs, and I've never cared much for any of the Pokemon frogs (mayyyybe Politoed).

    Fennekin is alright, but I'm such a fan of Vulpix and Ninetales (two of my all-time favorite Pokemon, design-wise), that Fennekin totally pales in comparison (as another fire-type fox). so that leaves me with Chespin, whose design I love! granted, I'm a little nervous about what its evolutions will look like after the Samurott-shocker last generation (though I still stuck with the irresistibly adorable Oshawott).

    how can you say that when you havent seen Froakie's evolution or what type of pokemon it is. This generation starters have alot of potential. Im sure they have something good planned for Froakie if not they wouldnt have made another frog, it will be unique im sure.

    Fennekin's evolutions can be a fire/psychic, but not because of that move. Fennekin used a psychic LOOKING move, but fennekin is a pure fire... that means that he just learned a move different from his type, wich is pretty normal in the world of Pokémon. So it's secondary type can be anything, and I actually don't care. Even when it's fire/fight, i'm going to play this game and use Fennekin, like I used Emboar in Gen 5. Emboar doesn't have that much fight moves in his movepool, and I hardly used a fight move with Emboar... I don't care. I always will enjoy the game.

    The issue never was about the movepool but the typing itself. It could have some fighting type moves and be pure fire type that people wouldn't mind at all.

    Ah yes, some true stuff. I agree, well not with everything, because I am hoping Fokko's evolved form(s) will be Fire/Psychic. But you spilled some true tea. *Nods*

    OBJECTION!

    I would!
    That's still saying it would be very similar to a Fire/Fighting. And that's no good!
