They did a list of their favorite dragons, a couple issues back placing Charizard on their list. Well in the newest issue in the letters section, someone pointed out that Charizard was a Fire/Flying type and not a Dragon type. Their response was that they didn't care about Pokemon's nutty classification system. "If you're a giant flying lizard that breathes fire; you're a dragon in our book"
So we know at least one gaming publication's opinion about Charizard, does that sway anyone one way or another?
