Where do fire/fighting Pokémon come from?

An investigation, just in case Scorbunny joins the ranks

Simone de Rochefort has been producing & hosting YouTube videos for Polygon since 2016. She co-directed the upcoming documentary The Great Game: The Making of Spycraft.

Pokémon fans have concerns about Scornbunny. The cute lil’ bandage on its nose, the revelation that it could do a Double Kick attack: Pokémon fans worry that the fire starter will evolve into yet another fire/fighting type. If so, it’ll join the likes of Torchic, Chimchar, and Tepig.

But would it really be so bad to have another fire/fighting type? Are there really that many? Have people made unfair assumptions about this adorable bopping bunny?

In this video we look at all of the fire/fighting evolutions and figure out where the heck they came from. We have a few theories.
