>dragonfly pokemon
>not part dragon
LOL
>>
yeah it should be dragon/flying
>>
>>38309288
But anon, dragonflies aren't dragons you silly fuck
>>
Maybe its evolution, Yanultimate
>>
>>38309288
>being this anglocentric

The Japanese word for dragonfly (蜻蛉 tonbo) has nothing to do with "dragon".

Even though Japanese have many compound words with "dragon" (they even call moles "earth dragons"), the connection between dragons and dragonflies doesn't exist in Japanese culture. EoT.

But then they'd need to explain why Yanmega can suddenly use Eviolite.

Cross-gen evolutions, you say? Don't mind if I do.
You know, it always bothered me that Yanmega wasn't Dragon type. I'll let Yanmega evolve into a pure Dragon type, with Levitate. The kids'll love that.
>>
>>38309288
Are you part stupid
>>
>>38309550
Don't slash thread my thread you prick
>>
>>38310170
No, hes single type
>>
They need to create a Mega for it that would be Bug/Dragon with the Levitate ability, but the problem starts when you see Yanmega's japanese name (Megayanma) because it will then end being known in Japan as Mega Megayanma.

OP is a Stupid/Gay-type Poster.

>1. The Japanese are well aware of the meaning of Dragonfly
>2. Dragonflies are very present in mythology even in Japan
>3. If a fucking palm tree can be a dragon due to name shit and a giraffe can be a dragon due to name shit a fucking dragon fly can be a dragon

That hasn't stopped them before.

>>38310721
Unique ability speed force; all speed boosts it acquired as Yanmega get converted into twice as many attack boosts
>>
>>38310742
Maybe when they add triple typing as a mechanic.
>>
>>38310782
Yes it has. Every cross gen evo is consistent with past mechanics.
Only split evos like Sylveon can exist now.

>>38309300
I think you mean Bug/Dragon
>>
>>38310742
Giraffe?
>>
>>38313134
What that has to do with Yanmega not being able to evolve again?
>>
>>38314508
It happened before Eviolite was a thing.
>>
>>38314740
So what?

It's just an item. It has nothing to do with Yanmega.
>>
>>38309288
Actually they're drac flies. Dragonflies stems from a shitty mistranslation that translated devil into dragon. And the fucking name stuck. If anything, these fuckers should be Bug/Dark.
>>
>mfw people are calling a pokemon that's obviously based on Meganeuras a dragonfly.
>mfw people want it to be dragon type based on this misunderstanding alone
>mwf people want a random ass evolution even though it wouldn't even fit the evolution line thematically
>>
>>38314169
Hopefully they’re sarcastically referring to Giratina
>>
>>38309620
Exact same reason why does yanma suddenly started to evolve
>>
>>38310742
>he thinks japs care about english language
too many moves and pokemons are japanese puns
>>
>>38310742
Dragon Fruit is a pun that exist in japanese language
Dragonfly does not
>>
>>38314161
DRAGON/FLYing
