Poison is retconned to be super effective to Water.

Why do people believe in logic?!

Ok, Water should be SE to Poison.

A retcon is a story tool. Not a gameplay mechanic.

nope :p the elements have always weirded me out though

imo: fire, ice and electric should absord their own types, it would really make them more viable from a defensive standpoint, although its not really like electric type is hurting anyway. water should not hurt water. doing this would probably require some other changes also to prevent imbalance

but for freakin frig sakes freakin, if we're gonna retcon anything, lets freakin turn freakin gyarados into a freakin water/dragon freakin. what is this flying nonsense haha, although doing so would probably make kingdra slightly less fashionable... which could actually be a good thing

First of all, I don't think that such an alteration would go over well with the fans. Secondly, how would they be able to balance out the types if they made that change? Finally, when I first saw this topic I thought you were making a reference to Final Fantasy VI. My mistake I guess.
I just cant sit any other way than this. If I sit the way other people do, my reasoning ability drops by 40%.

Poison doesn't need to hit more stuff for SE damage as much as it needs to have better defenses.

I wouldn't mind. Changing up the type chart wouldn't be the worst thing in the world, and Poison should be better offensively.

I know, I know, change is bad, but no.
do you wanna die or just come real close?
