T-Rex is a Dragon-type but Charizard isn't??

#1hkimxiPosted 9/11/2013 8:44:56 AM
Don't get me wrong, I have no problem with Charizard being a Fire/Flying, but it's strange that people aren't complaining that a T-Rex is a dragon type while Charizard, who looks more dragon-esque, isn't.

I thought there would be more butt-hurt people whining that their Charizard isn't a dragon type while a T-Rex is.

Like I said, I really don't care about their typings, it's just strange that I hadn't seen any complaints...

They will complain, earlier now that you've pointed it out, but they would've complained regardless.

Dinosaurs can easily count as dragons in this game. "Dragon" is a remarkably vague term that isn't any more bastardized than any other type. Charizard isn't dragon type for the sake of balance.

I actually can't wait to see what people say. These leaks will make for an interesting day.

Oh look, it's this topic again. Charizard has fire on its tail and wings that take up half the size of its sprite. Therefore Fire/Flying is the typing that makes the most sense.

I know Charizard is a fire/flying due to it being a starter and balance and all that. But most people are annoyed that Charizard isn't a dragon based on its appearance. I just want to see how people react based on the appearance alone.

Like I said, I really have no opinion on what type Charizard is, I'm just surprised more people haven't complained yet.

I was honestly a little bit surprised that MegaCharizard didn't become Fire/Dragon...
