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

3 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 more.

He looks more like a Dragon - Neonco31

4 Lucario Lucario Lucario is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. Created by Ken Sugimori, Lucario first appeared as a central character in the film Pokémon: Lucario and the Mystery of Mew, and later appeared in the video games Pokémon Diamond and Pearl and subsequent sequels, also appearing more.

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

5 Charizard Charizard Charizard, known in Japan as Lizardon, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Same as Gyarados, they both look like dragons - Neonco31

6 Azurill

It's normal/fairy instead of water/fairy like its evolutions? Why though? Can someone explain? - Ruee

7 Lycanroc

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

Midnight form Lycanroc is a pokemon that would perfectly suit the part dark typing...but they didn't do it. Why? It's a werewolf! That should scream dark type? Is it because you couldn't figure out a second type for the Midday form? Meh... Still a missed opportunity - Ruee

It perfectly suits the Dark type. It doesn't even look like a rock type at all.

8 Drapion

Very often when I am playing the game I forget this thing isn't part bug. I always thought Drapion was a bug type. It took a while to unlearn when fighting against it. It's weird. - Ruee

9 Palkia Palkia

Palkia and Lugia need to switch types. - Brobusky

10 Croagunk

The irony of these two is that people first thought they were part dark and avoided using psychic moves, but in reality, they are 4x weak to Psychic... - Ruee

The Contenders

11 Incineroar Incineroar

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

12 Exeggcute Exeggcute
13 Goomy Goomy
14 Solgaleo Solgaleo

I completely understand why Solgaleo is part steel instead of fire. But lets be real here: everyone thought it would be part fire when guessing its typing. - Ruee

15 Jynx Jynx

They made her an ice Pokemon because she isn't hot. - NikBrusk

16 Decidueye Decidueye

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 - Ruee
