I have always wanted a set that contained Grass/Flying, Fire/Ground, and Water/Flying for the starters. I don't care about balance and weaknesses. I just think it would be cool, because it would finally allow for there to be one starter of each type that represented the land and one of the air. Charizard, Swampert, and Torterra make up the other 3.
I think we'll have a water type, fire type and oh yeah a grass type.

Hoping to make lots of friends!
I'd like to see them go with a different cycle of three types. Fairy/Fighting/Steel would work nicely. Other trios include Bug/Grass/Rock, Dark/Fighting/Psychic, Electric/Ground/Water, Ice/Fighting/Flying, Rock/Fighting/Flying, Grass/Rock/Flying, Fire/Ice/Ground, Fire/Steel/Rock, Grass/Ground/Poison, Grass/Rock/Ice, Ice/Ground/Rock, and Ice/Ground/Steel.
Most notable among the other options is the Rock/Fighting/Flying trio, which form a perfect trio - each resists the one it's strong against, and they're all the same to themselves (in this case, they're all neutral to their own type, whereas Fire/Grass/Water all resist their own type).
I know I've said this multiple times and sound like an old record but I want my Grass "bird" starter damn it.
Here's what I'd like to see:
First, the type breakdown. I wanna see Fire/Poison, Water/Fairy, and Grass/Rock
Fire < Water < Grass
Poison is Super Effective on Fairy + Poison RESISTS Fairy, so Fire can SE hit Water = Fire starter has a chance against Water
Water is Super Effective on Rock + Grass RESISTS Water, so Water hits for neutral = Water has a chance against Grass
Rock is Super Effective on Fire + Rock RESISTS Poison, so Poison hits for neutral = Grass starter has a chance against Fire
Rock > Fire
Rock R Poison
Poison > Fairy
Poison R Fairy
Water > Rock
The Water type seems weakest, however late-game it can have TONS of coverage.
I have no ideas what the animals would be
Gen 5: Gen 4: Gen 3: Gen 2: Gen 1:
Zoroark Lucario Metagross Tyranitar Gengar
Till this day they still can function together as a team. And they will continue to do so.
With palm trees and what I've seen so far, it looks like a warm, tropical climate. Given that in mind, the starters and general Pokemon would ideally fit in that kind of climate. For a Grass-Type, there's a lot of possibilities. We could get another lizard, similar to Treecko, or something like a Koala. People seem to want a Grass/Flying type, so I wouldn't mind seeing a flashy bird. For a Fire-Type, I wouldn't mind seeing a Phoenix. A bright, flashy colored bird like a Phoenix would fit perfectly. A Tiger or something else exotic would be pretty cool too. As for a Water-Type, something like a Hippo would be nice. I wouldn't mind seeing another crocodile or reptilian like Feraligator either.
Grass type: maybe an Iguana of some sort.
Fire Type: Since they are based on the Chinese Zodiac: I'd love to see an Ox or a Tiger
For a Water started: An Anaconda would be awesome, or a crocodile.

I´d love to see those type combinations:
Water/Ghost or Psychic
Random: Meowstic, Salandit
LG: Hunting Squirtle
HG: 1 2 3 4 Hunting Growlithe
AS: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
Pt: 1 2 3 Hunting Cranidos
B2: 1 2 3 4 Hunting in Chargestone cave
Y: 1 Greninja 2 3 4 Hunting Tyrunt
Anything but ugly ones. We've had enough of them already. Also, no more fire/fighting please!
I'd love to see a peacock (Grass/Flying), red panda (Fire/Fairy would be epic) and a water bear (Water/Bug).
Giving us a starter with Poison, Fairy, Flying, Bug, or Dragon subtypes would be nice. No more Fighting, please!
Water bears are a type of microorganism, which I think would make an interesting starter concept because it has the potential to totally throw people off and have a cool Water/Bug type. Surskit, step aside.
I would totally love if we would get a starter that has a secondary typing even in its first stage, like Bulbasaur. A Water/Bug type would be great.
Anyway, if it's going to be the standard Fire/Water/Grass trio, then here's what I'd go for:
Grass: An echidna-like pokemon with spines replaced with blades of grass. Based on the echidna, which has an interesting ability to use electricity to help it find food. Becomes Grass/Electric
Fire: A coyote-like pokemon, based on the Coyote of Native American mythology. Becomes Fire/Rock, maybe?
Water: A horse-like pokemon with a fish-like tail that grows wings as it evolves. Based on the Hippocamp, and literally a sea-horse (as opposed to the seahorse, without a hyphen). Becomes Water/Flying. Might begin as Water/Normal?
I chose Grass/Electric and Water/Flying based on the inspiration but intended to make for an interesting interaction between starter typing, but for the Fire type, a secondary type was hard to choose. Fire/Dark would be more thematic to the inspiration, but is boring when paired with Grass/Electric and Water/Flying. Fire/Rock is more interesting typing in the trio (gives a double-weakness to Water but gives it a STAB attack against Flying, removes resistance to Grass), but the only real way to make it thematic is to make it an "ancient coyote" and thus almost a fossil pokemon.
