Gamefreak isn't usually bad with typings

You know, we have Pokemon like Jellicent and Galvantula.

But this gen had SO MANY missed opportunities:

Florges (wtf no grass typing?)
Goodra (I guess Dragalge makes up for it)
Xerneas (why only pure fairy?)
Heliolisk (Why normal? I guess better than nothing)
Clawitzer
Pyroar (Again, why normal?)

I can understand Diggersby, as it was normal to begin with.

Grass and fairy typing is not that good. Just saying. Pure fairy is boring but underrated.

I would have liked more unique typings for Goodra and Clawitzer.(At least they have good types.)

Wait, was the Skrelp evo confirmed Poison/Dragon?

And as to Pyroar, it seems like Gamefreak likes to give a lot of real world animals part normal. I mean now with Fairy taking the spot for some normal types you've got the birds, the rodents, cats, cows, monkeys, bears, deers, lions... well you get the idea.

I like it when a pokemon has normal as a secondary type. Stab normal moves, ghost immunity, and fighting isnt a big deal as a weakness if you got a flying/psychic/ghost (and now fairy) type to switch to

Yup, it was confirmed. There was a picture but I lost it haha.

I would've liked Goodra to be Dragon/Poison, though. I liked pseudos better.

Pyroar's Normal typing isn't even that bad, STAB Return for a fighting weakness is a good exchange.

It could have been Dragon/Fighting, its Dex entry mentions its punching ability.

Kinda glad Clawitzer is only Water, to be honest. Keep those weaknesses to a minimum.

Toph: Why? You think I can't put up posters on my own? *glues a poster with the picture to the wall*

Are you serious? I hope you complained about Eelecktross, Stunfisk, Groudon, Girrafarig, and absol as well.
