Let's say Fairy-Type is real, and following the Fairy>Dragon rumor.
I'd like it if Fennekin would be Fire/Fairy. It has the elegance and grace to pull it off by looking mystical, yet not Tinkerbell-ish. Foxes are associated with Magic, yes?
It'd have decent type coverage, SE on Steel, Ice, Bug, Grass, Dark, Fighting and Dragon, only being resisted by Fire. Its weaknesses to Poison, Water, Ground and Rock are crippling, but having a Electric-Type Move and Earth Power on it would be a great help to it.
that would not make sense. they really have no connection to each other and i would hope that wouldn't happen.
yes it does actually
Remoraid represents missiles and Octillery represents cannons and tanks.
I thought everyone knew this by now >.>
I assumed it was because it was an archerfish (which shoots targets with streams of water) combined with a remora. It doesn't look like a missile to me.
Empoleon was still like that though. Grass was resisted by his steel typing.
And yet Torterra got ground typing, keeping that triangle. Dragon is much harder to keep balanced because two out of the three starters would resist ice typing due to being fire/dragon and water/dragon and thus the only way the other starters could fight back is if they all were dragons.
but blastoise can learn ice type moves so he can still have an advantage over dragon charizard... especially on gen 1 when there wasnt any usefull dragon type move, so even if charizard was dragon blastoise could harm him while char no... anyway thinks are as they are but dont give me the excuse thet they did it for balance cause pokemon is one of the most unbalanced games ever!!
I have calculated what is very likely to be what Chespin's base HP, as well as its final evolution's, is going to be. Here's the link to the document: https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B5p2Z2YoTKj3UDcyOWxNakxzemM/edit?usp=sharing
If you think about it, Remoraid-Octillery makes a lot of sense in terms of the backstory behind it. Of course we know Remoraid as the Fish that connected to Mantine (though that's no longer the case in Gen IV), but I always thought that the Mantine-Remoraid connection was reminiscent of a plane-missile combination such as the fighter jet. At least that's how I interpret it. Anyways, back to Remoraid and Octillery, if you can think of Remoraid as the "missile," then you can think of Octillery as the "tank" or the command centre for artilleries, and thus the evolution is meant to show how weapon technology can advance over time from a simple purpose to a more complicated and detailed purpose.
