    I was going to facepalm at "Ralts line should be grass!!" being brought up again, but I see others have already beaten me to it.

    Anyone ever consider a type change for the Porygon line? Normal-type doesn't really fit for a virtual Pokemon made out of computer data. If anything methinks they should be Electric-types.

    I undestand that but why. I already that not all dragons have to be blue and ore purple. I am asking why does Dragonair change color when it evolves into a Dragonite.

    Not that I necessarily agree with it (I don't), but eh. Plenty of Pokemon change color when they evolve. Charmander-->Charmeleon and Staryu-->Starmie as two completely random examples that first popped into my mind.

    I thought Frosslass was the Pokemon based off a Yuki-Onna.

    Lol, but I understand even though I don't agree with the chart. I am just saying the color changes don't make much sense as all.

    I think that's part of the beauty. In my opinion I think the idea was completely random and they just wanted a big contrast. Why? Because they just did. Not everything needs an explanation

    I can see the Ralts line being called grass. Some people have said that they look like plants. Ralt's head looks like a small seed almost with the horns as sprouts. Kirlia has been called a flower, which it does indeed look like one. Then Gardrvoir is the "adult flower", being fully grown and delicate/graceful. On the other hand, Gallade would just stay the same type. I do agree that since Gallade can only be male, then that Gardevoir should only be female. They should change the male Kirlia's appearance a bit.
    No, I'm not saying it should be grass. I'm simply saying why people say it often.

    Yes, I can aee the Porygon line as Electric.

    IMO, Lapras looks much more like a Dragonair evo than Gyarados.....

    nope on both.
    Charizard as Dragon would break the starter triangle and in Gen 1 there's only 1 Dragon move, which deals set damage regardless of weakness & resistance.
    Guess what, if in Gen 1 Charizard is Fire/Dragon and Gyarados is Water/Dragon, THEY WOULD HAVE NO WEAKNESS.

    The truth is, both Charizard and Gyarados MUST NOT be Dragons.

    Also, Gyarados is based on a myth about a carp that turns into a flying serpent.
    While serpent itself can be taken as a kind of dragon, it also can be taken as a kind of snake, and we all know a snake isn't a dragon.

    This I can agree.

    Or it could be Dragin Water, which would help the weakness against Ice.

    When I was little, I always thought Corsola was a pre-evolution of Sudowoodo. Don't ask me why.

    You know anger most of all your emotions. You hold grudges against people, and swear to take revenge on anyone who gets in your way. You have a heart of power, and you constantly use that power in a bad way.

    Actually the carp turns into a dragon, hence the Dragon Gate which it leapt over. If Gyarados was introduced in a later generation I'm pretty certain it would be water/dragon, but it wasn't so we're stuck with the way it is.

    You're wrong. Gyarados can't learn Fly.....but Golurk can.

    This is also the reason why the two Nidoran aren't just one Pokemon with a gender difference. If they had come along in Gen 4, the most certainly would be. Of course it's too late now, due to their thoroughly-established stat differences and such. That and it would be an indexing nightmare.

    Honestly though, I do think they should've saved some concepts for later Gens. Yes, it'd have been a bit more risky but there would be less contradictions.

    There would have been no value to "[saving] some concepts for later Gens." Why hold back material in the name of a sequel you may or may not get?

    One of the various Pokemon manga actually has a protagonist whose Gyarados can use Fly. Probably you've read that before.

    You mean Lugia? Well that can work too, especially since Gen 2 also introduce Kingdra.

    But they most likely don't want Lugia to completely overpower Ho-Oh.

    Golurk flies using rockets. Yes, it's weird as it sounds. But it works.

    I used electric type moves on an azurill only to find out it wasn't a water type.

    It makes me wonder why they made it so certain flying types can't learn the move (Scyther) while others who are less deserving can (Dodrio).

    Yeah, I don't understand the Azurill thing, either.
