>I'm so retarded that I need a blue box next to my Pokemon to know if it's a dragon or not

Dragon, as in the type, is an element. They're just Pokemon that control dragon energy. They aren't always dragons themselves (see: Alolan Exeggutor, Regidrago).
>>
>>46786930
because the company that made and designed it deemed it a dragon, faggot

now why do you think aerodactyl is a dragon?

Because it looks like one, nigger. If Tyrantrum gets to be a Dragon-Type, why not Aero?
>>
>>46786902
The Japanese word for dinosaur translates to "scary dragon". The Japanese word for pterosaur (what Aerodactly is based on) also translates to "winged dragon". Thus, it is a dragon.

If you showed pictures of Aerodactyl, Charizard, or Gyarados to any normie, they'd say yes, those are dragons

Aerodactyl is a generic wyvern, Gyarados is a generic chinese dragon, and Charizard is a generic western dragon
>>
There are only so many actual dragons, why wouldn't Dragon Tamers also train dragon-like pokemon to increase their team's viability or just because that's what they like to do?
Like, if I like model tanks I might also build model planes, or trains, or gundams because there's an overlap in the skillset and because I'm not a human cardboard cutout.

No, they never started doing it, it's just your seething headcanon that you're now associating with a gacha game that has a noncanon text saying "not all dragon have the dragon type" in it.

The game stupid
>>
>>46787020
The very existence of things like gems, plates, and Z-Crystals prove that types are elemental, not physical. When an Absol uses Megahorn, the Bug type comes from the Bug type energy it's channeling into its horn.

Guzzlord looks like nothing like a dragon, it only has extremely superficial draconian traits, it looks more like a demon than a dragon

Gyarados can't even learn Fly, and as for Charizard, there are other Dragons with wings that still have the Dragon type.

Why are lancefags so embarrassingly autistic, lmao.
>>
>>46787057
Except Dragon (the element) is different from dragon (the animal)

Pterosaurs are quadrupedal and have their wing membranes connecting from the tip of the pinky fingers to the ankles, like simpler bats. Of course Aerodactyl is a pterosaur, but saying that it doesn't have some wyvern inspiration is like saying Garchomp doesn't have jet inspiration because it's primarily a shark.

>"Ruin Maniac Raihan wants to fight!"

>Except Dragon (the element) is different from dragon (the animal)
Dragon and Bug are the only types named after specific creatures, and all bug pokemon aside from Drapion (who isn't even a bug technically) have Bug in their typing. If Pokemon was a dragon, then it would have the Dragon type.

>By your logic, Yamper isn't a dog because it isn't a Dog type, even though it's explicitly called a "herding dog"
If Dog was a real Pokemon type, then, yes, Yamper should be a Dog type. And if Charizard, Aerodactyl and Gyarados were real dragons, then they would've had the Dragon type.
>>
>>46787091
I feel like Raihan was supposed to be themed after buildings and be Ground or Steel themed until late in development when they realized they didn't have the obligatory Dragon trainer
>>
>>46787098
>If Pokemon was a dragon, then it would have the Dragon type.
Not according to the people that actually make the game canon
>>
>>46787098
The franchise says otherwise. Gyarados, Charizard, are commonly referred to as dragons in canon despite not having the type.

Needing the Dragon type to be a dragon is just a retarded headcanon that you made up
>>
>>46787124
And Gyara, Zard, ect, being "dragons" and not Dragon-Type is a flimsy, retarded justification Game Freak uses, so they never have to retcon their shitty decisions and legacy design
>>
>>46787124
you're the type of faggot that'd try to hit charizard with an ice move thinking it was super effective
>>
>>46787129
That wouldn't be true even if it was a Dragon type, because the Fire type would cancel it out
>>

>shitty decisions

>>
>>46787139
hence its not a fucking dragon type
>>
>>46787128
Gyarados and Charizard were both created before the Dragon type was. Dragon type was a last minute addition to Gen 1, designed solely for Lance as a "final boss" type that resists all of the starter types.
>>
>>46787142
>dragons don't breathe fire

>>46787144
So, it's just legacy design that should be changed to fit within modern-day Pokemon standards?

Aerodactyl is stuck as Rock/Flying because all fossilmons need to be Rock type, apparently
>>
>>46787235
The Gen 1 E4 are super incompetent assholes that stay locked up in their castle all day and don't do shit. Lance only even comes out in Gen 2 to trash the scraps of Team Rocket and does about as well as an eleven-year old. The rest of the E4 got booted from their positions within 3 years of losing to Red except Bruno who literally just catches strong mons in Victory Road.
The Indigo League is a joke.
>>
>>46787270
Aerodactyl could've been Rock/Dragon
>>
>>46787291
Megadactyl definitely should have been. I think they just kept it Rock/Flying to reinforce its status as a frail fast attacker with better utility in Roost and Tailwind - not that a Rock/Dragon Mega couldn't run the same set.

it's like crying about SS4 being non-canon, despite the fact Toei/Shieisha/Toriyama want it referenced everywhere to where it's an element of nu-Broly's gimmick in Super.

if you don't like it, deal with it. the people writing the shit is aware of the meme.
