I'm gonna say it's a bird-like dragon.

Despite it being one of my favourite Pokemon I've never really questioned its appearance. In my mind Lugia's always been a bird. Although the dragon arguments are extremely persuasive (and I agree!) I can't think of it as anything else.

When Silver came out everyone I knew referred to Lugia as a "legendary bird", so let's call it childhood mental conditioning and leave it at that. omgyay.gif

this is argued a lot but most off the time its put as a phionex but may be argued still a bird/dragon at the end as a phionex is a bird off fire but most off the time ho-oh and lugia are put as the legendary phionex's as th birds and beasts have already been taken by the the two first trios but may be put as the bigger trio off johto including celebii into it but i just call lugia a phionex

It could be both, but seeing how it does not have a beak, or bird-legs like the legendary birds trio, I think it is closer to a dragon.

If a Lugia was real it would be really weird if it looked something like a seagull or a parrot, however I voted for both bird and dragon; it looks like a combination of both anyways.

I voted both, since it holds both bird and dragon characteristics. I figured that it was somewhat like Altaria, which is clearly a bird, even though it is classified as a Dragon type. Just like methuselahalchemist said, it is most likely a variation of a Wyvern. happy.gif

Hmm. I've never heard about Lugia being called a 'bird' (not that I don't doubt what you know...) But anyways, if you asked me, I would say totally a dragon. >_>

Surprised to see so many Dragon votes... I went for bird, personally. Like Ho-oh, I think they're both just giant birds, like Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres. Rayquazza is a dragon.

I see Lugia as more of a dragon than a bird. Though it definitely has qualities of both. It reminds me of Haku in his dragon form in Spirited Away. He had a somewhat furry appearance in some places and his face looked more mammalian than reptilian. So dragons can take many different forms than just being a big, scaly, flying lizard.

Lol, I'm surprised this thread has lasted as long as it has, but anyways:

QUOTE(Scrooge @ Aug 20 2009, 01:10 PM) *
You may say that it has a long tail and neck like dragons, but dragons also tend to be scaly, have forked-toungues and breathe fire, as well as having bat-like wings. (Also, I don't see how having what appear to be fingers at the end of its wings make it more like a dragon. If anything, it gives it arms rather than wings, which kinda screws everything up.)

True, but then again, Amphitheres have feathered body and wings (and a lack of arms and wings), and Lindworms and Drakes tend to lack wings. It's mainly the fact that Lugia has teeth but no beak, no visible feathers and 'spike-like' appendages on its tail make me think less of it as a bird.

QUOTE(draconitas @ Sep 12 2009, 01:48 AM) *
I refuse to call it a dragon, though. Dragons, to me, have four legs/arms + 2 wings, 6 limbs total. If its front limbs are also its wings (i.e. 4 in total), it's a wyvern to me. Lugia isn't enough of a dragon, but it might, at a stretch, be a wyvern.

Again, Dragons come in many different shapes as I mentioned above. And also Wyverns are a type of dragon.

I for one say Lugia is a dragon,but Lugia is in fact a flying,psychic type.So its hard to say but it is much closer to
a dragon than any old bird pokemon.

For some reason, he's always seemed to me like a Dragon-Penguin mix, probably because of the movie.

So... I think he's both. It's not really the first time they've Mixed-and-Matched Animals.

If I had to put it in otherworldly categories, I'd put it with the Wyvern.

Birds cant swim, some dragons, on the other hand, can swim. Lugia looks more like a Dragon.
I voted for Dragon. "Wyvern" isn't mentioned, it has always been Dragon/Bird

I've personally always seen it as a giant bird, but I can see where the dragon arguments are coming from.

Technically, Lugia, as a psychic type, doesn't have to swim. It likely uses it's psychic abilities to survive and 'fly' through the water, similar to Celebi and Mew.

Yes, but he is the Guardian of the sea...even if he wasn't psychic he would still swim. :P
"The guardian of the sea" thing would be poitless if he couldn't.

It would but that has no relevance to this. The fact that he is a psychic type remains, and proves he has no need to swim, thus making the swimming argument null and void. The thing is, he wouldn't be able to live underwater if not for his psychic power. If Nintendo was actually gonna have him swim they would have made him a water type2 instead of psychic.
