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

2 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'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

3 Psyduck Psyduck
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 ...read 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 Azurill
7 Drapion Drapion

Why isn't this guy a bug type like his pre evolution? - NikBrusk

8 Goomy Goomy

I thought it was a Water/Poison type..

9 Lycanroc 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

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

10 Palkia Palkia

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

The Contenders

11 Croagunk Croagunk

It does make sense, he and his evolution are based off of Poison Dart Frogs and they look like they can fight. - NikBrusk

12 Solgaleo Solgaleo Solgaleo is a dual Psychic/Steel Legendary Pokèmon introduced in Generation VII. It evolves from Cosmoem when leveled up in Pokemon Sun starting at level 53.It is one of Cosmog's final forms,the other being Lunala. Solgaleo takes a special form called the Radiant Sun phase when it uses Sunsteel strikes. ...read more.

FIRE/STEEL come on people...

He should be psychic/fire

13 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 seriously...how? - Ruee

14 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

15 Exeggcute Exeggcute
16 Jynx Jynx

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

Forget Goomy, HOW is this guy a DRAGON type? - NikBrusk
