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.

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.


If he wasn't a starter, he may have been, but them the brakes.

TROGDOOOOOOOOOOOR!!!

You have just nicknamed my next Garchomp/Hydreigon/Salamence.


Your suposed to Nickname Rayquaza TROGDOR!!!, cause it looks the most like TROGDOR!!!!


Although that is true, Garchomp looks most like a man...
Maybe a dragon-man...
Or... Maybe he's just a dragon...

It's just a game. Who cares?


Many do. I like how asking "Who cares?" stops everyone in their tracks.
Many things are "just things". Why do we care about them?
Because we can.
Even games need consistency.

Why are shorts short?
Why are bushes bushy?

Waste of time thinking so hard about something so pointless.
But sure, it's your and everyone else's time. Do what you want. I'm just saying what I think. Care as much as you like.

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


And a Ghost type


^ This!

The real question is "Why does Ghost-type even exist?"

Banette.. A possessed doll?

You would be lying to me if you said you weren't afraid if one of your stuffed animals in your room/bed start moving around. You be freaked. Freaked the freak out!!!

Drifloon.. if I am correct aren't Drifloon those Japanese folklore/myth/creatures that carry kids away to the "netherworld', "underworld', "other side"? Y'know, the one in Inuyasha with that flute and big red bulging eyes?

You would freak the freak out!

Yamask... how it is a Pokemon, I don't know. Dex entry says they are spirits of people.
That's not a pokemon, that's a spirit, good or evil, who cares. Freak the freak out!!

Shedinja.. is pretty fricken cool. But looking into it's back can steal your soul. That's just scary... and curious.. but that's not friendly. "Hey, Shedinja, let me give you a back ruuhhhhhhhhhhhhh~~" you're gone. Nothing. Freak the freak out!!!

Ghost-types... FREAK THE FREAK OUT!!!
