I'm choosing Sobble in Pokemon shield, I'm not sure about Pokemon sword. It depends on if Scorbunny ends up a dreaded fire/fighting type, or not

Team Sobble! I prefer the water starters in most games excluding Gen I. I think Sobble is a possible top 3 depending on the rest of the line...

Well hey now, we don't know until we know. I'm going to hope it's not another F/F, and will hold onto it until it is officially announced!

Only 6/800+ have the F/F type, I dont see the issue with it. It's not that common

I’m not talking about all Pokémon though just the starters. Blaziken, Infernape, and Emboar are all fire/fighting. Charizard, Typhlosion, Delphox and Incineroar are not fighting type. If Scorbunny is Fire/Fighting that makes 50% of fire starters being Fire/Fighting not exactly uncommon.

Fair enough. Those are personally 2 of my favorite types and favorite mons so I'd personally be happy with another one

I’m not against it if it’s a good mon but I feel they keep going back to it for ease. I also think a lot of early gyms were rock so it helped with the type disadvantage.

I think if Scorbunny ends up a fighting type it would probably make the end evolution very goofy. Blaziken and Infernape are two of my favourite starters so I didn’t mean anything personal.
