because he definatly looks like a dragon, he is able to learn almost every dragon move, his actual double type makes him not worth it, his japanese name means Lizard, what's a winged lizard who breaths fire? :o
well at least he looks more like a dragon than Reshiram to me lol
It just wouldn't be right to make a starter pokémon into a dragon type, it's too advantageous.
Think about to how Red and Blue were, Lance with his dragon types were difficult to deal with because they resisted grass, water, fire and electric too. If you had Blizzard though it was allllllright. --- Clean Cut high score: 65 cuts? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T6_Ty50Kais
