I guess that's what I really meant, a starter that it's final form is grass/flying.

I thought so too, but on closer examination, Galar looks like Britain flipped 180˚— for instance, note the Cornwall-ish peninsula in the upper right. So you start in the sleepy Highlands and work your way to urban England. I like it.

(Hadrian's Wall appears to have been relocated, however.)

Oh! Right, forgot about that. The final forms of the Gen 6 starters all had their secondary types be part of the other weakness triangle (Psychic>Fighting>Dark), so Chestnaught does indeed have a 4x Flying weakness.

I really hope this game's mythical Pokémon is a black dog (or a cat, if they want a modern touch).

Edit: Maybe Ground because it's played on dirt? (Well, on grass, but that's not an option.) Fire/Ground would be 4x weak to water, but it's *only* other weakness is Ground, every other weakness cancels out. That's kinda neat.
And it can't be burned or electrically paralysed

Which is nice

And neutral to bloody Stealth Rock

He means a smaller, cheaper one. The kind you'd be less afraid of entrusting to your kids than the $300 hybrid we have right now.

I mean, one of the big reasons that new Pokémon generations sell so well is because they're on handheld platforms that are more affordable than stuff like the Switch. Like, X and Y came out alongside the $80 2DS.

I gave it some thought and had a spiritual epiphany and decided Grookey is the best

Even though his name is also a clumsy portmanteau

All I'm saying is that the top of the game map they showed off is basically just the south end of England and nowhere in the announcement did they say you can't take the channel tunnel to Calai--err, Kalos...
