The Favs



Is there a Pokemon out there that you love to death, or just some random one, and you realized it was a /completely/ different type/another type?

I just now discovered that Jirachi was Psychic AND Steel! He was in my first Pokemon movie when it came out, my friend let me borrow his Jirachi on Diamond, and that thing was is one of my favorite Legendaries! When the /hell/ did he gain a Steel type? .__o'

Don't get me started on the Creation Trio... '>.> (Yeah, Giratina, I'm lookin' at you...)

Hi.



I could have sworn Deoxys was part Rock-type, but apparently it isn't.

The fact that Gyarados is part flying instead of part dragon really baffles me.

Marowak and Cubone both need to be made part fighting.

Luxray needs to be part dark, as does Luxio.

And the winner of the most WTF typing possible: Scraggy - it honestly doesn't look the part for either of its two types.

It's based on a Chinese legend about a carp that jumps over a waterfall and gains the ability to fly, or something like that.

The fact that it doesn't learn fly contradicts the legend though; that's the part that baffles me more than the cosmetic side of it. It does look remarkably like one of those Chinese Dragons, yes, but I don't recall any of those being able to take to the air -- unless I missed something? *shrugs*

I would've added the legend, but I forgot what it was after I first heard of it.

Stunfisk's typing.
I was stupid enough think it had no weaknesses. Boy, was I wrong.
Another oddball typing is Empoleon. It looks like a normal Water-type.
Ferroseed/thorn is another, for obvious reasons.

That's all I can think of.

Palkia being Water/Dragon, although I kind of understand. Still, pretty much all of the other Pokemon related to space have been either Psychic, or learned a fair amount of Psychic moves.

Space is ever present and is always flowing, like the ocean, hence Palkia's typing.
Even though you didn't include its brother, Dialga's steel typing is based on how time can be bended or modified through course of action. At least that's what I think, but I can understand what you're saying about Pokemon related to space.

I actually was thinking about Dialga, too. Don't know why I forgot to add him in. Time doesn't have anything to do with Steel, other than maybe the fact that it doesn't change or that clocks have metal parts, but I highly doubt that's what they were going for. He's just as confusing, if not more-so.

Yeah, that's what I was thinking about with space's relation to water. When I initially played the games, I thought "Why not just have exclusive time and space types, like the ??? type?" It would have been more trouble in the end, I guess, especially since they recently removed the ??? type.

Really? I always thought Palkia's typing was a pun on what gem it's modeled around. (since pearls come from ocean-dwelling mollusks)
It makes sense considering Dialga's typing too since diamonds, although being rocks, technically, can withstand a lot, which brings to mind the fact that the steel type has far more resistances than most other types.

Back on subject, when I first saw artwork of Absol during the dawning days of the third gen, I REALLY wasn't expecting it to be a dark type. Especially since until that point, almost all dark types were predominantly black (as opposed to Absol being a bright white). Other than that I really didn't know what to expect with its typing.
And before that, I, for the longest time, wasn't aware Tyranitar was part dark. I knew it was a rock type to say the least, but I never figured out the dark half until around the fourth gen. Also, is it sad that I only very, VERY recently discovered Steelix was ground/steel instead of rock/steel like I've been thinking for years now? xD

Because it's a starter. In the part of the game starters are used in most, a third-stage dragon type would seem extremely broken compared to almost everything around you. Notice how in the first gen the ONLY dragon types in the entire game elude you until you're almost at the end?

Its actually a "fossilized" tree, so its mostly rock which is why water angers it, but still i wanted to burn it
