Also, a thing on the whole type triangle thing:
Let's look at what starters have become dual type based on type and generation
Here, you can clearly see that IN NO GENERATION has their been a repeat of starters gaining two types. Now, GF may not keep this pattern, but if they do:
Not only is it impossible for them to do another YYY type triangle, but they can't even give fire a dual type.
Not saying this is going to happen this way, but it's something I've noticed and seems to be a good rule of thumb.
EDIT (Also in later comment, but decided to put it here for those reading through)
They have never had the same types gain a double type. That means if, in one generation, fire became dual-type while grass and water did not, that has not happened again. Looking at the chart, every combination of types being dual and single has been different, and no series of Ys and Ns in a generation matches that of another column.
Instead of visualizing patterns that are obviously coincidences, you should observe the fact that we see Chespin, the grass starter, use a dark type move, Fennekin, the fire starter, use a psychic type move and we see Froakie, the water starter, use a fighting type move. They wouldn't show this if they weren't planning on having them be these types. Plus, Fighting, Dark and Psychic create another rock-paper-scissor-like battle triangle (even though one part results in an immunity).
