I stand by 'bulky Water-types' looking ugly and being unnecessarily fluffy when the term 'bulky water' is used by pretty much everyone.
If its a standard though, so be it.
Yeah it's been the "standard" since last gen, so while bulky water is used by everyone, it works against our other standards and imo looks uglier than bulky Water-types. It would be highly unproductive to go back on that standard now anyway.
EDIT: especially since bulky water is pretty archaic and dates back to ADV and DPP when the term came into prominence and isn't as metagame-relevant in most tiers nowadays as it was back then, so the term should be dropped altogether since it doesn't necessarily mean the same thing that it did back then
