Personally I live him cos he looks freaking awesome!
^ Seconded. Not familiar with his moves at all, other than the typical Fire and Fighting ones and Boiling Water. As for typing, I was hoping for it to be Fire/Ground or Fire/Dark, but Fire/Fighting isn't bad at all. People just blew the whole "third Fire/Fighting starter" deal way out of proportion.
At first, when I saw him, I derp'd. But after getting used to him, I yay'd and celebrate'd.
He looks like Ganon! Awesomeness to the max!
His entire line is awesome. I don't care if it's another Fire/Fight starter, it's just awesome.
