Dragons are a rich and varied figure in mythology and folklore, from the vicious and hoarding dragon of European myth to the wise and slender dragons of the East. Dragons are in such great variety and mysterious powers that they are a fertile ground for Pokemon to be conceived from.

Because foxes, hounds, and birds, etc. aren't as cool as dragons. They deserve to have their own type.

There should be a Bug Type if there's a Dragon type.

Its because the moves use dragon magic. Like dragon breath isn't just fire, its dragon fire. Dragon claw isn't just sharp claws ripping into you, its sharp claws that have been enhanced with dragon magic ripping into you.

So i made this all up, doesn't mean it can't be true >.>

So what.
All the dragon pokemon can easily be listed as other types, normal/flying/fire/etc.
Look at Charizard he's a dragon yet he's listed as Fire/Flying.
