he's a mixed type elite four in the original games, why was he given random fire pokemon like magmortar?

It is a remake, not my fault you people think ports are remakes (but only on Nintendo systems)-Demondog666 on Kid Icarus Uprising

I guess this shows I don't remember much from Gen IV, who's Flint?
I was thinking of the Time Detective.

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.

I am pretty sure he was stated as being a fire type user even in Diamond and Pearl, despite only having Infernape/Rapidash (wasn't there a third one?).

Strange. That actually makes him MORE memorable to me.

Not for me. Like I always forget that blonde fool's name once again in Gen IV (I only remember it as Barry as there were a few people only talking about him days ago).
The next one I will forget is Hugh because... he's another idiot, but only remember because B2/W2 isn't that old yet.
Red/Blue/Kris/Ethan(Max)/Brendan/May (even though I hate May), and many others I do recall. The ones I can't stand or I consider a joke I usually forget easily.

Nope. Hi other three were Steelix, Drimblim, and Lopunny, of all things.
