In response to the oddly out of play Bush jab I'll leave this here: http://keithhennessey.com/2013/04/24/smarter/
On topic I say Kudos to IGN and this reviewer, she did her job - which is not to accurately review anything, it is to generate traffic to their site which she has achieved likely in spades.
Firstly the 'Bush Jab' was an example to show that Nintendo weren't trolling, but rather stating the obvious. (Also I might have been a bit harsh on Bush, but when you take into account that he once led the worlds only superpower, you have to admit he was 'below average' at best).
Secondly I don't live in the states ( I live in Australia and I'm getting around to putting that on my profile) so the assumption that I am pro Obama is irrelevent (but not your fault for assuming so).
While she did technically do her job, she didn't do it to the standared the gaming community expects. Furthermore, there aren't even that many water pokemon types (just about a third more then the runner up), which also makes complete sense given the circumstances of the game. (and doesn't effect battles to such a large degree to make the game unjoyable), So in the majorities opinion she gave a miscalculated and innacurate final score.
P.S. I checked your link, but the page was missing :/
