I just read it and as you said we have similar requests. And I don’t think we are minority here at all.
Think about it, pokemon was fully imaginary but millions of people memorized hundreds of attack moves and their effective counter types to win the games. A similar thing can easily be done here but this time based on reality and real creatures which once ruled our world. For example, carnivores like rex have huge advantage over herbivores like brachiosaurus so their attack can be “super effective”. On the other hand herbivores huge sizes should give them great life and damage and low speed. Developers tried to build a system like this but currently it’s not effective, too plain and boring. If, however, people read the bios and characteristics, which are also based on facts instead of imagination, people would both enjoy winning by implementing their own strategies and learn about these real extinct creatures.
I believe the game is very premature atm. So developers should check out these ideas for their coming updates.
