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
He's a Flying type because he's based off of Chinese dragons, which can fly. But he can't even learn any Flying moves, which makes his Flying typing pointless. - NikBrusk
He looks more like a Dragon - Neonco31
How the heck is he a Flying type? - FireWasp2004
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.
Apparently the Creation Trio is based off of three states of matter, and Palkia represents liquid, which is why he's a Water type. - NikBrusk
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
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
They made her an ice Pokemon because she isn't hot. - NikBrusk
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
Forget Goomy, HOW is this guy a DRAGON type? - NikBrusk
