I still don't understand how people thought Snivy could be Grass/Dragon without Tepig becoming Fire/Poison, Fire/Flying, or Fire/Ice. The starters always keep their super effectiveness against the starter they weaken at the start, and Grass/Dragon would make Fire neutral against it. Tepig would have had to pick up a type that scored a SE hit on Snivy for the triangle to be preserved.

This is why the Dragon type should stay away from starters, because it forces another starter have to adjust accordingly.

A lot of people were convinced that Oshawott would become Water/Fighting.
Tepig... most people said Fire/Dark or Fire/Rock IIRC.
Snivy's predictions were all over the place. Flying, Dragon, Electric... you name it.
Yeah, that's a problem games had back then. You actually had to get good at them. -Mctias

Cue someone who brings up Empoleon's lack of Grass weakness despite Torterra getting Ground for just that reason - or worse, one of those people who thinks Grass/Ground is not weak to Fire.

If those had been the starters, I would have locked them away in box 18.
