Khu rumoured the Star Branch typings are:

Dark
Fairy
Poison
Fire
Fighting

And funnily enough, they are positioned like the actual constellation the team get their namesakes from.
When was that info put out?

That only leaves behind a Rock type specialist and have no idea who that could be.

It is so confusing now that most people believe the Team Star main leading Boss to be a Poison specialist with the engine Pokémon as their ace. Then there is people speculating Geeta to be a dark type specialist.


Well it seems that there are many characters in these games. So maybe there are more than one pecialists of the same type

I definitely see Poison, Dark, and Fairy. I can see sets of black, purple, and pink flags on the map. We know Mela leads the Fire type squad, but the one issue is there's no reddish brown set of flags. The last set is more yellow and its located in the north east in the bamboo forest area.
True.

This makes me think of Penny!

The highest point of the star is the area with the pink flags way up north. If pink is fairy type... wasn't Penny's ace said to be Sylveon....

pardon it was a kaka leak

so type specialists are:

Gyms: Bug, Grass, Water, Normal, Electric, Psychic, Ghost and Ice
E4: Dragon, Flying, Ground and Steel
Team Star: Dark, Fairy, Poison, Fire and Fighting

ya, rock is the only type without a specialist.

So then I wonder which important trainer will be a Rock type specialist. It would be very odd to leave just one type out.

Maybe it is Arven as we haven't seen him use any Pokémon. But from what I recall, he isn't much of a battler.

Maybe Geeta is instead a Rock type specialist. I see quite a few gold in her design and gold can be from elemental forms such as rocks and deposits.

I believe Kaka said her ace is Sylveon.
Wasn't it said that her Ace is strong against your starter but not in the Fire>Grass, Water>Fire, Grass/Electric>Water but rather:
Espeon to beat Quaxly's Evo Fighting Type
Umbreon to beat Fuecoco's Evo Ghost Type
Sylveon to beat Sprigatito's Evo Dark Type

Which would be a nice approach towards using Eeveelutions

I wonder if we will have a Fairy evil team leader

Here's my thinking, I don't think there is a gym leader or an elite 4 that is fairy type confirmed by the leakers. The revealed Mela is from the fire crew and judging from the Torkoal she probably is a fire specialist and I don't think there's a fire gym leader or elite 4. As such it would make sense if the other crews are of types that don't have a gym/elite4 type already assigned. Fairy would fit. I could see it being very plausible (though of course not confirmed) that at least one of the crew leaders (or even the overall boss) might be a fairy type leader.

Evil teams really have been in a downward spiral since gen 7.

Miraidon, transform and roll out!
So we're all pretty sure Clavell is the villain right? Assuming that Star is more of a nuisance with a bigger threat behind the scenes

What do u mean?
They just don’t affect the story in impactful ways anymore. Take out Team Skull out of Sun/Moon and the main story is virtually the same. Team Star seems to continue the trend of goofy looking buffoons who battle you because they are trying to “disrupt something” while contributing little or nothing to the story.
Gen 6 imo. Its just too hard for them to top Team Plasma.
Team Flare gets critized a lot, but at least they were a real threat.

We have kinda gone from actual terrorist organizations to minor delinquents. Team Skull was just hoodlums who wanted to disrupt the Island Challenge, though you do learn they were employed by Lusamine to help her get Nebby. Team Yell was tasked by Piers to simply cheer for his sister, though took it too far and tried to get in the way of other challengers. Seems Team Star it gonna follow the same path of just being rebels, and while we don't have their full story yet, it seems they're just gonna be a group of rebellious students who want to cause trouble.

it looks like a pattern that repeats itself in odd generations since black and white:

Gen 5: No rock-type trainer.
Gen 7: No ice-type trainer. (I don't even consider Sina, she doesn't even have an official artwork).

Gen 5 didn't have a user of the Steel-type either.

What do u mean?
Gen 1- Evil Pokemon Mafia out to take control of the world
Gen 2- Mafia man's henchmen return to complete former leader's goal in order to get him back
Gen 3- Eco Terrorists try to expand world's Ocean/Land through Primordial force (but accidentally trigger the apocalypse)
Gen 4- Terrorists blow up lakes and kidnap pokemon with the ability to forcibly control the pokemon who presides over time and/or space with the intent to draw out the pokemon in charge of the Upside Down in order to literally remake reality in their image
Gen 5- PETA pretenders try to monopolize the use of Pokemon to take over the world
Gen 6- Ridiculously flashy....Business Man? Tries to fire off an ancient weapon in order to kill all humans & return the world to Pokemon
Gen 7- Misunderstood streetpunks + Pokemon Preserve leader who is obsessed with Ultra Space because her husband somehow disappeared into it
Gen 8- Fanboys obstruct gym challengers so their bae has a higher chance of winning
Gen 9- So far it seems to just be a group of Mad Max-inspired, rave-loving, biker punks from the same academy you are from

Clearly he meant that the threat level has gone significantly down for these 'evil teams', but at least Team Star look more 'fun' and interesting than Gen 8's. That was the most pathetic excuse for an antagonist group I've ever seen. I get wanting to change things up so there will still be an antagonist group but not really 'evil' but Team Yell was just stupid.
