      I would love to See
      Water/Electric starter
      Grass / Rock or Grass /Ground we only ever saw in Torterra

      Fire /Fairy
      Fire/ Rock
      Fire / Bug
      Fire / Poison

      I’m still lost as why Charizard is categorized as a Fire/Flying type when it was suppose to represent the dragon in the Chinese calendar

        Charizard should have been Fire/Dragon
        Blazikin should stay as it is
        Infernape could easily been a Fire /Electric
        Or Fire/ Dark
        Emboar should have been Fire/Ground or Fire/Rock

        Insenaroar has the true potential to be Fire/Fighting

          This is a pretty clear logical fallacy imo. The argument isn’t that there’s a lot of fire/fighting Pokémon, it’s that there are a lot of fire/fighting starters. You seem to use either one of these ideas, switching them around when it suits the argument.
          There are objectively a lot of fire/fighting starters, 3 lines out of 7, despite there being 18 options for a fire starter. There may well be 4/8 soon enough, despite how one would expect it to be more like 1/18. You’re attacking a weak version of an argument to make it look less accurate. It’s not <1%, it’s 42%!
          Personally, I believe there isn’t a reason a lot of them are fighting type. Each one of them has been individually chosen to be a fighting type, and it’s nothing more than coincidence. But people can still find that annoying. I don’t have a problem with any one of them being the type they are, I have the problem that that makes each of them less unique in a way. I want every starter to have their own new spin on it, and it’s weird that we’ve done this three times already, and may be approaching a fourth. _Out of 8,_ not 800+.

            Litten's Incineroar is basically a fire fighting. He's A WRESTLER!!! Who happens to be a dirty fighter so they swapped his fighting type for dark.

              This is the same way people justify police brutality and racism in America. #StayWoke

                            Fire steel .electric .ground and fairy would be better.which is less than fire fighting

                              But hey these theories were interesting to know
                              Especially 4

                                  There are 3 fire/fighting starters out of all 8 fire type starters, all 3 came in a row, that is why people dislike the typing, it is overused for starters

                                      Yea... but the statement wasn’t that there are so many fire/fighting POKÉMON it was that there are so many fire/fighting STARTERS. Out of all of the fire starters they make up nearly 43% of them. I know this was just for fun but careful not to shift the argument lol

                                              even as an avid pokemon player and a semi-diehard fire type fan i really dont care that the secondarys a fighting type and i feel really surprised to see so many people actually upset about it
                                              like i get wanting another type but at the same time i really dont care that much? fighting isnt even a type i like very much but the starters all have cool designs for their fight-y aesthetic and im here for it

                                                It won't be okay because it would be like having the se song and dance for the fourth tine for people who love thwir fire starters. All of the other starts tend to be unique even when soms share the exact same typing.

                                                  But the complaint is not that their are to many fire fighting Pokemon in general, but that their are to many starters with that typing.

                                                        Wait doesn't she work for polygon.
                                                        Oh wow it's even polygons editing style
                                                        Clicks and sees it's a polygon video

                                                            Incineroar is designed as a fire/fighting type but ends being a fire/dark type.

                                                            Honestly, I think the devs were making a inside joke by fooling everyone it was going to be another fire/fighting but ends up having a dual typing with dark.

Green 6 gave us psychic, fighting, dark. Gen 7 gave us dark, ghost, fairy.

That’s a large percentage when looking at such an important set of Pokémon.
