#167833 The only three-stage-evolvers that don't require an item are:
Caterpie
Weedle
Pidgey
Dratini
Mareep
Hoppip
Larvitar
Ralts (Gardevoir only)
Aron
Trapinch
Spheal
Bagon
Beldum
Starly
Shinx
Venipede
Sandile
Solosis
Klink
Zubat & Sewaddle are also possible, since happiness shouldn't be too hard of a requirement.

That leaves us with the following Types to choose from:
Bug: Caterpie, Weedle, Venipede, Sewaddle
Dark: Sandile
Dragon: Dratini, Bagon
Electric: Mareep, Shinx
Flying: Pidgey, Zubat, Hoppip, Starly
Grass: Hoppip, Sewaddle
Ground: Trapinch, Sandile
Ice: Spheal
Normal: Pidgey, Starly
Poison: Weedle, Zubat, Venipede
Psychic: Ralts, Beldum, Solosis
Rock: Larvitar, Aron
Steel: Aron, Beldum, Klink
Water: Spheal
Since some Pokemon lose or gain typings through evolution, they aren't included in those types here. (For example: Larvitar and Pupitar are Ground types, but Tyranitar replaces it with Dark, so the evo line can neither be classified as Ground, nor as Dark)

Looking at this, Poison/Grass/Ground doesn't work. From our 3 Poison types, Weedle's and Venipede's Bug types neutralize their weakness to Ground and Zubat is completly immune to it, due to its Flying type.
Flying/Grass/Rock might do it, but the secondary types cause varying effectivnesses among the possible candidates...

#167957 Just a question is it possible to make it so the starter menu doesn't come up at the start? Because u could have a bit of a change so have a kinda of a story line to it? Like at the start u can find ur first Pokemon as an egg when u get to the new town or something and u take it to the professor then it hatches and the proffesor is like I see that Pokemon likes you... The he gives u the option to keep the Pokemon or choose a set of starters.?

#168257 Are we including a pre-made story with this or letting players freely go about and do whatever? If it has a story we don't really need to have the basic trinity and can just make three unique starters to the region that may have nothing to do with each other. Might not be the best for early-trainer interaction. We could also just have one three-stage evo of every type possible since we have a large startup. Just food for thought.
