Well, that sort of makes sense. i mean, they both look pretty aquatic.

Plus, the gimmick of having a strong Poke evolve from a useless one shouldnt be overused. Feebas -> Milotic was stretching it in my opinion.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Personally I want to see a Fire/bug type obviously something that looks like a firefly or something possibly with some Lava stage appearance for the pre-evolved format. if it gets levitate because it's a firefly all the better. The big advantage being Fire should neagte the weakness to fire. Birds will still be a problem as will water. Still if they ever decide to invent some decent bug attacks and you got something that will be pretty good agaisnt psycic.

I'd also like something that makes a Grass type really good I really like the Ludico (sp?) that was in Sapphire Only was really weak againt flying in fact in battle tower Ludico was one of the biggest problems I faced. Also I good grass would be Fire/grass once again i think only weak to Flying.

Actully one of the things I'd me interested in for starter pokemon would be having them as grass/fire, fire/water, water/grass.

But then the starters wouldnt form a rock-paper-scissors and your lame rival would have no chance of ever defeating you :P

Well they barely form one as is, since you can always just throw an Ice Beam on the water starter and use it to kill the grass one.

I'm still disappointed they didn't do Fighting/Psychic/Dark starters though...

The only problem being that Dark is 100% immune to Psycic. Still there are plenty of R/P/S combos in the game to try.

When would you be using Flamethrower against Blastoise or Razor Leaf on Charizard anyway?

Your starter always begins at level 5 with just a weak normal-type move and a stat-lowerer, so their type doesn't make a difference until later. By the time your starter would have learned Confusion or whatever, you'd have caught something else that could beat the Dark starter, or just rely on a non-Psychic attack on your starter to beat it. It's not that hard...  :-\

So that makes my duel type for starters idea just as valid.

Starters are already dual-type: Fire/Flying, Grass/Poison, Fire/Fighting, Water/Ground, Fire/Fighting again, Grass/Ground and Water/Steel.

Water/Steel learns Drill Peck, too.

I was refering to my idea where they duel starter type ie fire/water. Although even if it isn't a starter i'd love to see a fire/water type anyway some kind of boiling water attack.

Gyrados was always one of my favorite looking pokemon, but I hate the fact it's water/flying. It doesn't fly at all and all the flying does is give it a 2x weakness to lightning.

Meh... if it's going to be flying type, let me be able to teach it fly...

It's great because it has huge attack, great special defense, high hit points and Intimidate, which lets it take physical attacks very well.

Plus it's immune to Earthquake, beats grass types and is only weak against Electric and Rock (and it wipes the floor with most Rock types). The only thing that sucks is that it doesn't learn a single flying move...

I guess those are good although most of my teams have an electric in them. I had one team that had a Garydos for a while I switched it out when i needed a serious flyer to get me around the map. Ended up grabbing a better water type and rolling with it.
