The thing with Fighting having some honor aspects really is part of the musketeer quartet though, whose Fighting type is only explainable through the concept. They learn no physical martial arts Fighting moves, only learning general fighting moves that other Pokemon without arms can learn, such as Close Combat and Double Kick. They can't even learn Bulk Up, and only Focus Blast could fall under the martial arts blanket and even then it's only a fictional element of martial arts.
Their sole ability of Justified also exemplifies this honor concept. Now that we have the musketeers, saying that the Fighting type is completely martial arts and the ability to fight is a bit shortsighted.
