Well, besides radically changing how the game has played for the last x years, it would mean that you now have to know whether nidoran is poison/ground or ground/poison, which seems absolutely GD stupid.
I don't care that OU is still only about 30 pokemon, you're asking us to memorize the ORDER of something that didn't matter before for ~ 60+ pokemon (UU show up in OU for a reason) and making 2ndary types worthless.
What if all bug pokemon automatically switched out when a flying type enters?
