Some weird foreign myth I'm not familiar with or something? Or did they just want to give him STAB with Dragon Pulse?

Ampharos's Japanese name, Denryu, means both electric current, and electric dragon.

The Japanese name of Ampharos is Denryu and it can mean electric dragon.

Its Japanese name is "Denryuu," which can mean "electric dragon."

I'm not sure if it's supposed to be a weird sort of dragon that doesn't really look like a dragon or if it's just a pun on the name, but there you go.

Ah, it's pretty straightforward then.

Putting the pun aside, there's also the fairly slender body and the wool/hair and orbs giving it a semblance of Asian dragon traits. It's also a bit of a stretch, but Asian dragons are considered gentle and associated with clouds, like lightning. Clouds also look like a sheep's wool, too.

A sheep evolving into... whatever Ampharos is honestly confuses me more than it turning into a dragon. But that's just me
