Hmm, you do have a point there. I just feel like it would be a little...redundant to have two starters that eventually become the same type.

I dont think that GF will pull a move like that, since it would be kinda bland...
I would definitely love to see a Water and Grass Fire type, just not as a starter

I'm just glad we didn't get another Fire/Fight combo... I appreciate the unintentional tip of the hat to fire fighters, but two should be enough.

Yeah, fire/fighting was slightly overdone. ;o; Next time, I think it'd be pretty cool if they could give us a starter with the combination of dark/fire. We've never had one of these, have we? Well, there's Houndoom, but it's not a starter Pokémon, though.

Wait... what's the third? Emboar and Blaziken... am I forgetting one?

EDIT: Oh... Infernape. You know, I never, ever chose him to play with. I'm a Empoleon man for LIFE.

Yeah, just *slightly* overdone xD

I would love to have another dark/fire type!! Houndoom is awesome, and getting a new Pokemon with that typing would be great

At least we all agree on the Fire/Fighting issue. There's still plenty of combinations that haven't been done much or at all that could work very well. Fire/Dark would be pretty cool to see, and I think a new Fire/Ghost-type would be pretty awesome too.

Is this... A fire type club? ^~^
Name:XpokeX
Two fire type partner pokemon:Flareon and Infernape ^=^
Reason:Fire types just really appeal to me,the sense of their burning will makes me want to catch em all
If you could create a fire type pokemon,what would you base it on?:Id be wanting a starter fire type pokemon thats id say based on a wolf perhaps? I'd like it to be a fire/dark type like houndoom and maybe it had like those flaming things like the thing on mega blaziken's hands on the soles of its feet which will look pretty epic when it's moving :3

Welcome! Hmm...a Fire/Dark wolf. The only thing I'll say about that is that it is very similar to Houndoom and that night night go over well unless it had something very distinguishable about it. It would also be somewhat similar to Arcanine considering that's based on a dog.

That being said, a Fire-type wolf would be pretty cool if it had something to distinguish itself from Arcanine and Houndoom's lines.

I feel like that Pokemon would be constantly tripping over itself.

If they were to create another dark/fire Pokémon, what if it were humanoid? Although, we do have a lot of humanoid fire-types out there, such as Blaziken, Emboar, Delphox, and Infernape. Hmm... well, anyway, aside from that, a grass/fire-type would be pretty cool as well. n_n;; Perhaps its body could be shaped like a tree, with burning leaves stuck onto it?

My rendition was going to be a down-turned flower body (think Victreebell's shape) with several "arms" sprouting from the top. It could move around on them like a spider, or Vine Whip manipulation. Little bulbs at the top of their body are the source of the fire attacks. At evolution, the flowers bloom into red or yellow/orange (for shiny).

Fire/Dark as a humanoid might be dipping into the realm of approving Arson-like behavior, and I am not certain GF would go in that direction. It's fine if a lizard breathes fire (since we can't do that), but seeing a human-shaped creature set things on fire with its hands would be stretching the, already delicate, balance GF/Nintendo has with the anime series and parents. Just think of all those banned episodes, and most of those were just for bad choices in lighting effects.

*sigh* Parents are too sensitive these days, when I was a kid there was a lot of stuff that was okay that now is just like "What?! You can't do that!" nowadays (I'm looking at you, Game Corner.)

I like all of those ideas, btw. That bulb-flower one sounds like a really intricate design.

I was kinda thinking it would be in the colours of black and the flames on its feet would be grey.and probably not as fury as ar canine but not as slim as houndoom either oh! And no horns on it :3

If I had to make a starter though, it would definitely be a Fire/Ghost type, either that or a Fire/Grass type, Nintendo and GameFreak really should start kicking it up a bit sooner or later, but until then, anything but a Fire-Fighting type is fine with me.

Haha words cant express how i would rage if they even dare to make another one of those xD
I really like the fire/ghost idea, Chandelure is a cool Pokemon already, but a new one wouldnt hurt at all

Rage is an understatement.

The wolf Pokémon I'm imagining looks a LOT different from Arcanine and Houndoom. I think if we give it some different moves, it would work very well.

Game Freak could definitely kick it up a bit on the Fire-types as well.

I looked at Serebii.net, the other day, to answer my curiosity about what types of starters I initially chose for each game. I'm always tempted to choose the Fire-starter (hehe), but looks like I pick Water-type the most. I'll admit that tie-breakers usually go to the cuter Pokemon.

GEN 1: Pikachu (Yellow) / Squirtle (Blue)
GEN 2: Totodile (Soul Silver)
GEN 3: Mudkip (Ruby) - I played through on Sapphire with the other two
GEN 4: Piplup (Diamond)
GEN 5: Tepig (B/W)
GEN 6: Chespin (X/Y)

I think this decision process is based on Rock gyms being some of the first gyms to challenge. Also, you don't get a fishing rod (and hence Water Pokemon) until you've played the game a while.

Fire-ghost could work, but I'm not too sure about fire-grass. If this starter were to exist, wouldn't it take some value away from the main grass starter? If it were just a regular wild Pokémon, though, then it shouldn't be such a big deal. xD;;

Didn't you say this exact thing a couple of days ago? I'm having a serious case of déjà vu here.

Pick two Fire-type Partner Pokémon: Typhlosion and Chandelure
Reason(s) for liking Fire-types: Fire is pretty Flippin' Cool. While I don't tend to care about things like base stats or abilities, or STAB, Fire-Type always seems to be super strong, and I like almost all fire Type pokemon, (Only not Monferno and Infernape, and that's just visually) Plus, while I wasn't able to choose starters when I started playing (Pokemon Colosseum) My second (and favorite) shadow Pokemon was always Typhlosion, and was heartbroken when I accidentally fought one of the others in replays.
If you could create a Fire-type Pokemon, what would it be based on: OHOHOHO FIRE ANT (I Feel like there may actually be one though) It could like evolve into a Soldier ant, and then while the males would stop there, the Females would Evolve into a queen ant, but at a really high level.

Welcome! Ahh, the fire ants! That is a cool idea, it would work just like Vespiquen. I like it a lot.
