We should change the starter types next game

Nah. It's fine how they are. The secondary types can vary so they're all strong against each other, though. I like that idea.

Does it really have to be mentioned again? Ok... fine.

Water, Fire, and Grass form a triangle of weakness and resistance that is easy to understand, and helps introduce new players to the type chart.

If you think that it's getting boring, that's fine... however, please understand... the types are used, not for long time fans, but for people trying Pokemon for the first time.

More of a Pokemon fan than TherianReturns will ever be.
Snowflame is greatest comic villain ever made. Shame on DC for letting him fade into obscurity.

This all goes in hand with "easiest to remember", and again, I consider that a valid reason. Not a super-strong one, one that could change if the designers are ever in the mood, but a valid one.

The reason I called the complaints "silly" is that a lot of them were about how "unbalanced" other triangles are (when balance is not and was never the point, as evidenced by Charizard's double resistance and Swampert's double weakness to Grass) or things like that.

Of course, on the flip side of the "balance" coin is the "maintain the triangle" coin, and some people who suggest type triangles have a bad track record of forgetting to maintain the triangle (PROTIP: Flying/Ground isn't weak to Rock or Fire.)
