Major Spoilers Question Of The Day: What’s Your Type Edition


The latest Critical Hit recording session featured the usual antics I associate with staying up too late with my nerd friends, including a fascinating dialogue about the habitat of the puffin, the woes of purchasing themed furniture and a Rob/Rodrigo discussion of classic Pokemon.  Due either to the lateness of the hour or the inscrutable pathways of memory, I shocked myself by keeping up with and even participating in a conversation about Pokemon types, an oddly exhilarating experience. The examination of which video-cryptids were ice-type took me back to my days selling Pokemon cards to unsuspecting children in the late 1990s, and left me amazed at what I retained about the various types of Pokemon and which I prefer.  Of course, there are like 20 varieties these days, and my memory isn’t THAT comprehensive (plus dragon-type seems a bit like a cheat) but I’m an old-school fan of Bill Willingham and can always fall back on the classical “elements” of lore, which in turn begs today’s query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) had childhood crushes on Firestar, Frankie Raye and Scarlett, and so has a bias, asking: Choose your classical “element”: Earth, Air, Water or Fire?
