I'm just tired of being corrected (bossed) by you and sumwun. It's like you're always on me.
If anything, you were the one who corrected me. You told me that I had something wrong, but didn't specify what, so, because I wanted my answer to be correct, I asked you what I got wrong. Also, we only correct you because we're trying to help. There's no reason to get mad about somebody trying to help you. :/
@Taco Rock fire and electric steel are Generation 2, water bug is Generation 3, electric grass, electric fire, and electric ice are Generation 5, and flying fighting is Generation 6.
@Jason I can't speak for the Taco person, but I'm not always on you. I correct a lot of stuff posted by a lot of people. All those people are probably feeling the same thing that you're feeling.
sumwun's right, sumwun does it to everybody.
Thanks, sumwun.
