Aren't shooting fire out of their backs the whole time?

I don't know, it just takes some of the childhood magic away from me. When my opponents see my Typlosion, I want them to be afraid of the bad motherf***er shooting tons of fire out of his goddamn back >_>

Agreed. It certainly doesn't help that Charizard X's blue mustache flames are permanent, those look so horrible.

Same here. If the Charmander line can have a fire blazing all the time, wynaut Cyndaquill? Sure, the fire is essential for Charmander to live and all, but still, would it be so hard to put a fire on Cyndaquill all the time?

This definitely bothered me the first time I saw it in Maison.

I know technically they don't always shoot fire, but if I'm right, every one of his sprites in previous gens don't really have a non-fireback version. In those battles, he just always have his fire.

In this gen, he only has it as he attacks t makes sense, but without the fire, he just looks like a lame gerbil thing.

It's a shame, typhlosion was on my list of favorites, but I'm not sure how much I'll be using him anymore

It's not my fault that Nintendo lied to me when I was a child >_>

The image of that flaming colossus stayed in my head.

No, because as a kid, I saw tons of renditions of the three not always on fire.

I played Pokemon Stadium 2, where I first noticed "hey where's the flame scarf thing?" and then realized he let it out when he was being aggressive. I actually thought that was a cool touch as a kid.

So... yeah no, I don't really feel like anything's been ruined. Just if anything, being more true to what it was originally intended to be like. They probably only kept the flames out all the time in previous generations because they couldn't handle re-emitting the particles and pixels every so often with static sprites. They probably could've fixed this when they started animating sprites but eh.

It never shot fire out its back constantly. The 3D model is based on the anime not Gold/SIlver.

The only reason why it has fire constantly in previous games was to show it was a fire Pokemon.
