I wasn't even aware of this until I read a Pokedex handbook for DP (which I still have lol) but I'm glad they dismantled the old type-based system and now base it on the move itself. It helped make some once-useless Pokemon now have moves that can work off their best attacking stat (Sneasel, Gyarados, Misdreavus etc.). Had this change not occurred, Gyarados wouldn't have decent STAB or some Pokemon with good stats may have still been useless.

I would never want to play my old Ruby again cos I loved this new system.
