Why is Palkia part water type?

Diamonds are really hard (though still soft)


What do you mean "though still soft"? Diamonds aren't soft. They're the hardest naturally-occurring substance on Earth.

From what I just saw from images, Kelpies LOOK like underwater sea beasts, having a fish-like tail. My problem with Keldeo is that it looks like a generic pony


See the other link.

Floatzel is a weasel


In a world where weasels are otters.

I didn't know how else to describe Palkia.


Might I suggest an online dictionary or thesaurus?

Should've been Dragon/Psychic imo but I'm a generic Pokemon fan so my ideas are probably terrible =P

"In folklore, Water Horses (spelled as "Waterhorse" in folklore) are described as being very similar to a long-necked seal. They are described as having a small head attached to a long giraffe-like neck with an equine mane (occasionally covered in hair) and having two sets of flippers, the rear pair at the very end of the body, giving the impression of a seal-like tail. Its body length ranges from 5060 feet and the neck is 70 feet long"

Keldeo has none of those features. It's a generic horse onto which GF slapped it's favorite typing.

Loot at Floatzel's name. It's pretty clearly based on a weasel. Oshawott's family is based on otters.

Palkia is a dragon that looks mechanical. Robotic dragon is a decent description.

It's because of the similarities between water and space. They both are flexible, have the ability to be formed (with enough power), and can be entered.

Palkia is a universe creating pokemon, it doesn't have to make sense for it to be so spontaneous, it's Palkia.

If you need a definite theory; Space Whales.

The three dragon legends from Gen 4 also allegedly represent states of matter, with Dialga's steel representing solid, Palkia's water representing liquid, and Giratina's ghost representing gas. I have no idea if that is official or just another fan theory, but just putting it out there.


I quite like this theory
