Am I the only one wondering why Xerneas isn't part Ground?

Given that it has a move called Geomancy / Geo Control, and since it seems to draw its energy from the ground, I find it weird that they didn't take this opportunity to make a cool new dual-type legendary. That, and the whole Behemoth-Ziz-Leviathan Earth-Sky-Land theory that's been floating around.

Because it would make 0 sense for the "Life" pokemon to be weak against Water and Grass.

The official Megami Tensei Art Loki of the Shin Megami Tensei IV board. Why? Why not? Because. Maybe. Exactly. My hair is bigger than you.

Snorlax can know thunder punch, fire punch and ice punch? Why isn't it electric/normal, fire/normal, or ice/normal?

That's exactly what your asking.

Just because it knows a move, doesn't mean it has to have that type?

Ground?!?

I was wondering why it didn't turn out to be Fairy/Steel.

Fair enough, I forgot about that. I just mentioned it because I had seen the theory tossed around a while back.

I've given up on trying to make sense of the weakness system in Pokemon.

Right, Snorlax's signature move is Thunder Punch. Geomancy is Xerneas's Sacred Fire, you know.

I think you're taking the geo part of Geomancy too literally. Think of it as geo meaning the earth as a whole, not just the ground.
