Why the HELL would you guys want Fennekin to be fire/psychic? Almost every single goddamn Pokemon has access to Bite and Crunch nowadays.
PSYCHIC IS NOT AS AWESOME AS IT ONCE WAS.
(That said, GRASS TYPE REPRESENT. Which, uh, I see the flaw in that statement with this post.)
EDIT:: Okay, and I don’t understand the hate for fire/fighting. Granted, I never have had a fire starter before, but any fighting type I’ve ever had has been the most useful part of the team (ilu lucario).
Having chosen Fire types ever since I disliked how hard it was at the start of the second gen with Chikorita, I can definitely say that the only useful starter evo that was fire/fighting was Blaziken. Infernape really isn’t that great and Emboar is just… I had to get a Cyndaquil into my White 2 because I’d had enough with not being able to do much with my Emboar (til I had it leveled very high) in the story line. Not to mention, Emboar is the slowest of the fire types. Even though Infernape has the speed I like, the way I battle just doesn’t fit it.
I’m extremely excited for a possible fire/psychic starter because it’s different and more tangible with a fox. They are extremely sensitive animals, so it would be very fitting. Also, other fire types focus on SA, so I could see this starter having high speed and special attack. I can’t really see Chespin being a dark type (aside from the old adage of rodents being a bit nefarious), which is unfortunate because I would love to see starters with the Dark/Psychic/Fighting circle on top of the already set grass/fire/water. Aside from these two sets, there aren’t types that match up quite like this. It would add a bit of ‘dimension’ to the starters.
And psychic is still bitchin’. Know how to use them and you can take down ERRYBODY.
