This doesn't bother me. Some Pokemon are able to learn moves of other types to better handle types that they're weak to. For instance, Dragon Pokemon are able to learn Flamethrower and Fire Blast to cover the Steel Pokemon that would wall them and the Ice Pokemon they're weak to.

Also, as some others said, a Pokemon learning their STAB moves alone will leave them seriously walled by types they're weak to, so they have moves of other types to help hit them neutrally or supereffectively.
