Oh, Tepig. What are we going to do with you? We had such hopes when we saw your first stage, but your final evolution is such a disappointment design-wise. On the plus side,Tepig is the only dual-type starter this generation, but disappointingly it's the same old Fire/Fighting combination we've seen for the past two generations, making a total of three Fire/Fighting starters.
