To show off how cool the new graphics look and a more varied set of moves, probably. I'm pretty sure they've done that in past trailers. People like seeing the battles and what they've done with them, and, if froakie DOES become a fighting type (not jumping on that train yet, though), maybe he gets that later on or in a higher form and they wanted to show it here.
It makes sense from a marketing standpoint.

Looks like it could work, but I'd find that more unlikely than close combat.
Although, who knows? The bubbles could end up as flying mechanisms.
Although, as I said earlier, I don't think ghost and dragon will ever be secondary starter types, and the same for me goes for flying. Yes, there's charizard, but they were still testing things out there and it was the first game.
But we'll just have to wait and see.
