Because Dragon/Fire with Drought and increased Special Attack, would be ridiculous. They probably wanted to give him Drought more than anything. Not only would he lose the water weakness, it would further be weakened by Drought. Oh the Rock/Ground weakness, well how about an instant Solarbeam. A Drought Dragon/Fire Charizard, assuming it gets faster could just run Flamethrower, Solarbeam, (some other move: Hidden Power Ground/Focus Blast/stuff...), Dragon Pulse and be pretty well off But I will agree and say Ampharos is BS lol. It's a Lamb/Dragon I guess
Ampharos being a dragon makes sense because, besides the name
1. Sheep are gentle creatures, and Asian dragons are often thought of as such. 2. Sheep have wool, which resembles clouds. Asian dragons are often associated with clouds. 3. MegAmp has a longer body and lots of fluff around the shoulders/tail - like Asian dragons are often thought to look.

I really don't give two flips about Charizard. I'm more ticked that they didn't make Mega-Blastoise a Water/Steel, seeing as he's supposed to be a freaking TANK. He's slow, with high defense, and even his design is meant to mimic a tank, so why in the world didn't they add Steel and make him a super tank?
Also kinda miffed that they didn't make Rain Dish his mega ability so you could use rain dance and make him regen health.
