I'd rather a pure Fire type than Fire/Flying. That double Rock weakness is not fun at all. --- "I am the ONLY God." - Albert Wesker

It's only that they are fire-fighting, they are only physical Pokemons. I don't like flare blitz damnit, I want to use fire blast and focus blast! --- Official Pikachu of the Pokemon X board. "1+1=2" -NickLOLZ

Also, I think when there are multiple species with the same dual types, it sort of cheapens the combination and the Pokémon really needs some special stats and abilities to make up for it. Like Pidgeot/Fearow/Dodrio/Braviary, etc. Normal/Flying just isn't as appealing a lot of the times as Normal/Type other than Flying or Flying/Type other than Normal. There are a few exceptions, but I think Pokémon with unique combinations (Heracross, Gliscor, Sableye) are more useful. --- "I am the ONLY God." - Albert Wesker

They can get away with pure Grass and Water starters because they aren't as specific of types as Fire/Fighting. With Fire/Fighting, it's more obvious that it's being reused, since it's such a specific type combination. --- http://meta289.deviantart.com/#/d4j1eby Fact: Things are so much better when taken at face value.

Infernape is not physical, its Attack and Special Attack are equal.
