Why doesn't Haxorus look like a stereotypical dragon? Take stereotypical dragon, add axes to its face, take away wings, that's Haxorus.

Gyarados is a combination sea serpent and windsock. Carp/koi are affiliated with windsocks because "koinobori", windsocks that look like the fish, are popular and traditionally flown to celebrate children and hopes that they will grow up well.

Dragonite doesn't look like a stereotypical dragon. Unless Barney is now a dragon. >_>


It's actually pretty close to a traditional Japanese/Asian dragon, with things like a gentle demeanor and affiliation with water.

Right now I'd only count Charizard, Gyarados, Dragonite, Salamence, and Rayquaza as fitting that bill.


what about druggigon and that 3 headed hydra thing?


My bad, I forgot Druddigon (I'll edit it in). I couldn't include Hydreigon because its partly based on a hydra, even though it does look like a stereotypical dragon for the most part.


It's not based on the hydra. It's based on Yamata no Orochi.


Which is...more or less....a.......?

Care to prove it? The Hydra was aquatic and known for its incredible poison, and Game Freak outright said it's based on the YnO.


Please, do tell me what makes up Hydreigon's English name.
I know it's based on Yamato no Orochi, but it also borrows from the Hydra

Explain how this decides what it's based on.

Find me a picture of a dragon that doesn't have a tapered "lizard-like" snout, and I'll believe you.

Edit: and Ken Sugimori already said its based on a dinosaur.
