It's kind of a miracle how popular pokemon got, actually.

It's the anime. No question.

I would argue it was the cards, actually. Not everyone’s parents could afford a Game Boy, so the cards were the equalizer that let Pokémon invade the entire playground.

Tyrogue -> Hitmonlee

#236.51 - Tyrogue’s strong competitive spirit helps this Pokemon to continuously train and challenge foes, even if it loses. They get stressed out if they cannot train every day, so Trainers looking to raise this Pokemon must establish a regular training schedule. Tyrogue who have a gift and passion for offensive maneuvers gravitate towards kicking moves. They will seek out a master of this style and train under them diligently. As they age, their legs gain spring-like divisions, eventually enabling them to perform powerful, stretchy kicks.

That actually looks terrifying. I wonder what would a Tyogre evolving into a Hitmontop turn out to be. That might explain its Intimidate ability. That's a joke, I already knew why

I am weak to Ground, Steel, and Psychic. I resist Grass, Dark, and Fairy. I double-resist Fighting and Bug. I am immune to Dragon.

What am I?

The main thing that gave it away was psychic only hits two things for super effective and you already said you resisted fighting.

Having an unused combination is cool because you can theorize on what you'd be.
