pokemon that are based on animals, but arent the type you would think they are

best examples of this is hippotas line, and sandile line. both are based on aquatic creatures, yet arent water type. are there any pokemon you see and associate with a type different than what they are?
dandelion + flabebe + fairy wind = saddest moment in pokemon.

Even though they aren't animals, I thought the gothita line would be dark type. Goth=dark

I always thought Stunfisk would be part water instead of electric and ground.

Lileep and Cradily they are filter feeding animals closely related to sea stars and sand dollars, not plants (also doesn't help that while ancient they are not extinct and still live in the oceans yet were represented as a fossil mon)

Flygon's line, they are based on ant lions but are dragon not bug(they certainly benefited lol)

Shuckle isn't a turtle though it's mold or fungus.

I always thought Stunfisk would be part water instead of electric and ground.

Originally, it was going to be Water/Electric.

In the interest of type diversity, Game Freak made it Ground/Electric instead.

This is also why Frillish and Jellicent are Water/Ghost instead of pure Water.

I thought Tynamo line was going to be water/electric but nope just electric, Im kinda okay with that though but the thing that bugs me is their levitate ability, maybe I can understand it on tynamo because it looks like it is floating but not on eelektross, I can totally see that it is glued to the ground and it has feet and even uses them to jump.

Luxray should've been Electric/Dark.
I'm not easily impressed; I'm usually oblivious to whatever's in front of me.
