But that doesn't make it a dragon.

Vannilish isn't an ice-cream cone.

Trubbish isn't a trash bag.

Nosepass isn't a Moai statue.

Meowth, Skitty, Glameow, and Purrloin aren't cats.

Neither Blastoise nor Torterra are a tortoise.

Empoleon isn't a penguin.

Infernape isn't a monkey.

Dragonair and Eelektross aren't marine Pokemon.

Budew isn't a rose bud.

Butterfree isn't a butterfly.

Mothim isn't a moth. Venomoth obviously isn't either.
....because shutup.

Technically, Blastoise and Torterra are not, in fact turtles. Neither is Torkoal. They are all tortoises.

Arceus may be an alpaca...
But that doesn't mean he's based on one.
I'm not easily impressed; I'm usually oblivious to whatever's in front of me.
Stunfisk is the epitome of monstrous majestic legendary creatures that spew fire.

Trubbish isn't a trash bag.

Pokémon White Pokédex entry: The combination of garbage bags and industrial waste caused the chemical reaction that created this Pokémon.

I suppose, strictly technically, it is not a trash bag but the product of several + industrial waste.

Also, its classification is Trash Bag pokemon, but that's just for funsies :P

Why do I have to move with the crowd of kids that hardly notice I'm around? I work myself to death just to fit in.

I still maintain that Charizard is a lesser relative of Dragons. That would explain the moveset and appearance, while maintaining its typing.
