Top 10 Pokemon that Don't Look Like Their TypeYou 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
Wait he is water... - Sambazing
It is my bae
.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
He looks more like a Dragon - Neonco31
Y flying type, it learns no decent flying moves and it just adds to electric weakness. ARGHH pokemon ruined gyrados with the flying type
Yeah, definitely. I assumed Lucario was a psychic type what with it's aura abilities. I was surprised to find out it was actually a dual steel (huh? ) and fighting type. - eventer51314
Same as Gyarados, they both look like dragons - Neonco31
Why isn't this guy a bug type like his pre evolution? - NikBrusk
I thought it was a Water/Poison type..
I don't get why the Midnight form doesn't have the Dark type. On the bright side, no double super effective damage from the opposing Pokemon that has a type advantage over Lycanroc. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
It perfectly suits the Dark type. It doesn't even look like a rock type at all.
Palkia and Lugia need to switch types. - Brobusky
It does make sense, he and his evolution are based off of Poison Dart Frogs and they look like they can fight. - NikBrusk
FIRE/STEEL come on people...
He should be psychic/fire
Okay apparently Decidueye's ghost typing makes perfect sense. Owls have a lot of lore when it comes to being associated with death, ghosts, and spirits. It was still unexpected that it was part ghost. Though I appreciate that Gamefreak is starting to do more with real life mythology and lore with the starters. - Ruee
Considering that no one expected Rowlet's final evolution to be part ghost, I'm adding it on here. Serious how the crap is it ghost? Ghost is my favorite typing and I'm not complaining, but seriously...how? - Ruee
Looks like a fighting type, described like a fighting type, has moves that CLEARLY makes it seem like it really wants to be fighting type but we can live with 4 fire/fighting type starters so they used the heel wrestler concept to make him dark type. - Ruee
Forget Goomy, HOW is this guy a DRAGON type? - NikBrusk
Tapu Fini makes perfect sense it's based of a fish
