Pokemon: What if the starting Pokemon swapped types?

Imagine a world where the starting Pokemon weren’t Bulbasaur, Squirtle and Charmander. Behold: type-swapped starters!

Can you believe there have been twenty-six starting Pokemon (first-form) alone now?

Although we’re probably still some ways off from seeing a completely new rock/paper/scissors type triangle for the starting Pokemon, even in the games that follow recently announced Pokemon Sword and Shield, it’s still fun to wonder how different the games could’ve been if something as ostensibly minor as say, the types of the three starting Pokemon had been switched around.

Reddit user I’ll Be Frank Wit You has done just in the following series that sees the starting Pokemon from past generations reimagined.

Generation I

Fire/Water/Grass

Water/Grass/Fire

Generation II

Fire/Water/Grass

Water/Grass/Fire

Generation III

Fire/Water/Grass

Water/Grass/Fire

Generation IV

Generation V

Generation VI

Generation VII
