RE: (1) Chespin, Fennekin, and Froakie’s Types Revealed [1/14]

Aw, I was expecting something cool when I saw the article go up! like all of the basic forms would be dual-type or something. Instead, we just get told that, again, the base starter forms are mono-type.

Which means Bulbasaur is still king of the pack.
*waits for news on Gen 6 starter evolution types*

I've decided to leave PokeBeach indefinitely. Between quitting Pokemon for good and not having much to do here, I don't really see the need to stick around anymore.

Well it does.

The main argument for Fennekin gaining Psychic is the fact it uses a move akin to Psywave in the trailer.

However, all starters who gain secondary types, do not learn moves of said type before evolving, in fact, if you keep them unevolved, they learn other moves instead

Mudkip -> Marhstomp
Hydro Pump -> Earthquake

Chimchar -> Monferno
Facade -> Close Combat

Or in other cases, they don't learn new typed moves at all, but merely a single one the moment they finish evolving.

Charizard (36 Wing Attack)
Pignite (17 Arm Thrust)
Torterra (32 Earthquake)

Or both!

Combusken (16 Double Kick)
Torchic -> Combusken
Fire Spin -> Bulk Up
nothing -> Sky Uppercut

So, the Psy attack it uses in the trailer means nothing unless it was Fire/Psy from the beginning
Fennekin being pure Fire, we know nothing about any types it might gain.



The same also holds true for the "Night-slash"-like move from Chespin, although offensive Dark moves are more common than Psychic.

Remember speculations about Dewott being secondary Fighting because it learns Revenge.

Vulpix gets Extrasensory as an egg move. It and Ninetales are mono-type Fire.
I'm not sure where you're going with this.

Just pointing out it doesn't mean a thing, because people are fangasming about the possibility of gaining Psychic-type as it evolves ever since the trailer..

Nobody ever said that this was supposed to be shocking news, did they?

RE: (1) Chespin, Fennekin, and Froakie’s Types Revealed [1/14]

Lol I never would have thought they were going to be dual types, that wouldn't make sense and Im glad GameFreak didn't make them as such. Its always, always bothered me that Bulbasuar was a dual and the ONLY one, that throws everything off and makes it uneven. I guess its a nod for being the first Pokemon on the list, though?

I do believe that the type of moves they used were a hint to what types they will evolve into. After all, they could have chose any moves, why ones of different types?
As much as I would like to see grass/dark though, Chespin is such a happy looking little critter.. its hard to believe he would turn into something with a darkhearted look to it. Tongue

actually stil believe that they will have this sort o triad dark/psychic/fighting... but as usual in the other evolutionary stages.... anyway, i'm sure they'll learn some of their dual typing moves before evolving

i just love the fact fennekin is another very japanese mystic fox

What? This is madness, I could have sworn Chespin was the Water type!

Really, this information is virtually worthless to anybody who knows what Pokemon is.

on what basis?
Exactly the opposite happens, where the pre-evos actually have different moves on the learnsets that are then replaced by one or two of the secondary type AFTER they evolve. Check my other post.
