Top 10 Pokemon that Don't Look Like Their Type

You know those Pokemon you think are a certain type and then you look it up and you realized you were wrong? Yeah, those. We can argue they should've been a different type, the type we thought they were.

The Top Ten

1 Gyarados Gyarados Gyarados is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. It evolves from one of the weakest Pokemon, Magikarp. But Gyarados has a high attack power (as of gen VII, mega Gyarados is ranking #19 for highest attack stat & would rank #10 if legendary Pokemon aren't included), and ...read more.

He looks more like a Dragon - Neonco31

Should be a Water/Dragon Type. - JuliaRandomly

Why isn't this thing a dragon type Pokemon

Y flying type, it learns no decent flying moves and it just adds to electric weakness. ARGHH pokemon ruined gyrados with the flying type

2 Lugia Lugia Lugia, known in Japan as the same name, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

.Why is it a Psychic/Flying type although most moves are water-types?

let's relate the diving pokemon to science:

The Diving Pokemon's ability is to control water but it is a psychic type;one of its name origin comes from "luna" w/c is the moon.

In relation, The moon controls the tides all over the world--I think that is Game Freak's point of view of interpreting Lugia as the "Guardian of the Sea". Anything i.e. related to cosmos (e.g. moon, stars, etc) although there are exceptions are Psychic-types.

The moon controls the tides all over the waters on earth because of its gravitational pull on one another as the moon revolves around the earth and the earth revolves around the sun. The GRAVITATIONAL PULL of the moon causes low and high tides in various places depending on the moon's position; therefore concluding that, Lugia does make sense as a Psychic/Flying type rather than a Water/Flying-type that causes 4 times weak to electric although type-advantage ...more

Indeed. Exact explanation for why its typing does make sense at all - JuliaRandomly

Uh, duh! psychic flying shouldbe Lugia's type.

Wait he is water... - Sambazing
