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 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
Wait he is water... - Sambazing
It is my bae
To be honest, I think it should be a pure flying. People say it should be flying/water, but it just looks like a pure flying
P.S: The flying type should be changed to air type
.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
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.
Same as Gyarados, they both look like dragons - Neonco31
Why isn't this guy a bug type like his pre evolution? - NikBrusk
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.
I thought it was a Water/Poison type..
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
Forget Goomy, HOW is this guy a DRAGON type? - 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
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
Why isn't he an Electric type? - NikBrusk
Fairy makes sense to its pupose but doesn't look like it - boltslegend
Tapu Fini makes perfect sense it's based of a fish
Looks like a dark type
He does look like he could hypnotize you. - NikBrusk
Zygarde does not look like a dragon/ground type in ANY of its forms. It just doesn't. Unless I'm not understanding that there is something in mythology for Zygarde to have this typing. And if so, tell me. - Ruee
I personally feel that Lurantis should've been grass/fairy or grass/bug. I don't see how it's only a grass type. I guess because it's the same for Florges with not wanting to give them too many weaknesses? - Ruee
Grass/Fairy -type! Just being a fairy type alone doesn't make sense enough. - JuliaRandomly
Similar coloring to a dark-type, but it is actually dragon/electric instead.
It looks like a steel type
