Then why do I see about 10 times as much of this "backlash" as I do anyone who "obsesses" over Charizard? And the people who want to make Charizard part Dragon aren't fanboys/fangirls, they're trying to make Charizard better.
I'm not sure what board you're on because I see a lot of Charizard love topics.
Also, Gyarados would surely be better off as water/dragon, but I don't see everyone clamoring for that to change. I'm probably the biggest Gyarados fanboy on the planet, and I'd rather they keep it water/flying.
Not changing this sig until The Undertaker vs. Chris Jericho happens on PPV (started October 4, 2009)
I like Charizard because Charla. I however don't like the fire starters as a whole, and Rapidash is my favorite fire type. As for underdog fire type I enjoy Flareon you can actually have a little fun with Toxic Orb and Guts. :D also MixedFlare.
The only thing that bothers me is the uninformedness of the numerous posters. For instances I am sick of the hatred to everything, I understand that will never go away, but honestly the lines of fact and opinion couldn't be more blended here. Like the constant ZOMG Smogon is zeee debil esque hatred, when really for the most part the guidelines the site set are helpful. Doesn't exactly make someone a 'zealot' just because they pay attention to viable strategies.
But really can't we all just get along? /rant *prepares for Trouble...*
