Name Pokemon who look like they should be a different type

Girafarig - Psychic/Dark, the whole duality aspect and the evil looking tail chomper just screams Dark.
Flygon - Bug/Dragon, it's a big Dragonfly looking thing. It's preevo's are Antlions.
Primeape - Fighting/Dark, Fighting is generally seen as a 'pure' type but Primeape goes bat**** crazy and doesn't fight fair.
Typhlosion - Fire/Ground, it's the Volcano Pokemon. Would also work as a sort of opposite to Charizard. STAB Earth Power would have been awesome.

Lugia-Water/Flying.

Seriously, Lugia's water affinity was emphasized far more than it's Psychic abilities. "King of the Sea" and so on. Hell, even the games put more emphasis on water; it was found deep in Whirl Islands in water.

Samurott - Water/Fighting... A samurai otter. Come on!
Emboar - Fire/Dark if just to stop the fire/fighting boringness
Serperior - Grass/Flying, just looks like it should be able to fly to me.

Gyarados - Dragon/Water


While that would indeed make infinitely more sense, bear in mind that Gyarados came to be back in Generation I, back when the only Dragon move was Dragon Rage. Which meant a Water/Dragon-type wouldn't have had a weakness at all.

Serperior just screams Grass/Dragon, at least to me. At the very least, it ought to have been Grass/Poison.

I was hoping Galvantula would've been Electric/Poison.

I'm aware, but we're just talking about looks here.
