Which type is Gamefreak the most obsessed with?

I'd have to say water.

Don't believe me? Check the TM/Tutor/Breeding/Learn lists of EVERY water type and tell me what you see.

A whole lotta ICE.

Water. Isn't it still the 2nd most frequent type besides normal?

Water is the most frequent type.

Steel steel steel steel steel steel steel. It was the best type before they added Fairy-type. I was hoping they would give it a much-needed nerf with Fairy-type, but no, THEY BUFFED IT.

Journey to the West is a pretty good book, but they did not need to spend 3 gens of fire starters making a reference to it.

Well it has always been quite clear which type is their favourite. Water so it should be 1st in any poll done. The evidence is in the number of water types to all other types.

Fire is no way the favourite type, of all the starter types fire is always the one that is kicked to the floor. I think people are a bit confused concerning Blaziken and Charizard because they have been given extra attention and so think fire is the favourite. There is a good reason though due to low amount of fire types giving them mega evolutions is probably GF's way of balancing their favouritism out a little. And because they are popular pokemon anyway.

Dragons are the favourite type for legendary and pseudo-legendary pokemon but not overall. There still aren't many dragons compared to other types.

Steel. Well it is brilliant defensively due to all the resistances... but it isn't like electric type (only one weakness) so...

How does Blaziken tie into it? Infernape is obvious, Emboar I kinda get, but Fire-Chicken-Muay Thai-Master?

Overall, Water.

For (pseudo)legends, Dragon.

How did Fire even make the ballot? Anything Stealth Rock weak does not belong on this list unless the obsession is a negative one toward the type.

Not sure where Steel came from, either, especially with the removal of two of its resistances (although it was given a different resist and a SE).

After Water and Dragon, I feel like Fairy was forced down our throats. About the only thing holding back my opinion is the fact that, on the whole, there are not too many really good Fairy-type Pokemon, and many are hampered by low physical defense (which Poison and Steel attacks often are).

Water is to powerful and with a broken move to back them up.

Bug, first they buff them, then they nerf them, then buff them, then nerf them...

Am I the only one who thinks Gamefreak loves Ho-oh?

They gave it a backstory in Crystal, + thunderbolt
Gave it calm mind in R/S/E for sacred fire
Made sacred fire physical in d/p
Gave it brave bird in hg/ss
Gave it regenerator, flame charge in b/w
Made fire resist fairy + defog all over the place in x/y

Now all they need to do is nerf stealth rock's base damage. :P
