A Pokemon fan on Reddit has reimagined the final evolutions of Starter Pokemon with a single type by giving them a secondary element that suits their design and characteristics. The fan, mrjnebula, excluded Pokemon generations that already have dual typings for all three Starters, such as Scarlet and Violet.
Here are the dual typings that mrjnebula gave to the Starter Evolutions:
- Blastoise (Water/Steel): This makes sense because Blastoise’s shell is made of metal, and steel is a strong and durable material that can withstand a lot of damage.
- Venusaur (Grass/Fairy): This makes sense because Venusaur is often depicted as a gentle and peaceful Pokemon, and fairies are also known for their kind and benevolent nature.
- Charizard (Fire/Dragon): This is a popular fan-made dual typing for Charizard, and it makes sense because dragons are often associated with fire.
- Meganium (Grass/Ground): This makes sense because Meganium is a bulky Pokemon that is well-suited for digging and burrowing.
- Typhlosion (Fire/Dark): This makes sense because Typhlosion is a fierce and aggressive Pokemon, and dark types are also known for their intimidating and sinister nature.
- Sceptile (Grass/Dragon): This is another popular fan-made dual typing for Sceptile, and it makes sense because dragons are often associated with speed and agility.
- Swampert (Water/Ground): This is the dual typing that Swampert has in the Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire games. It makes sense because Swampert is a powerful and versatile Pokemon that can thrive in both water and land environments.
- Torterra (Grass/Ground): This is the dual typing that Torterra has in the Pokemon Diamond and Pearl games. It makes sense because Torterra is a large and heavy Pokemon that is well-suited for living on land.
- Infernape (Fire/Fighting): This is the dual typing that Infernape has in all of its appearances. It makes sense because Infernape is a powerful and aggressive Pokemon that is known for its fighting skills.
These are just some of the many ways that Pokemon Starter Evolutions could be reimagined as dual-types. It would be interesting to see if Game Freak ever decides to implement these ideas in future games.
