I like embirch as a grass type only because his cannons look underdeveloped. Sort of similar to how bagon learns to fly because he wants to, Embirch's hot temper could manifest itself when it evolves.
Could make for a nice dex entry too. Although fire/grass would work better with the name.
Also known as Monkeybillio and RadicalMonkey
