    Gyarados is one of those ones that I don't understand why it's not a Dragon-type. Heck, it's even based after the myth of a carp jumping over a waterfall and becoming a dragon.

    Donphan seems like a Ground/Steel type with its armor and whatnot, but maybe that's just me.

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    Some of the 'small' Legendaries seem way more like Fairies than Psychic-types now. Celebi, Jirachi, Manaphy, and Victini definitely suit the Fairy typing, at least design-wise.

    [​IMG]
    Milotic does seem like a Water/Fairy type now, which would help it out a lot. Either that or Water/Dragon- both kind of suit it honestly, which is a bit strange considering they are opposing types.

    I still wish Primal Kyogre was part Electric- it would definitely get a boost from its ability, and it would make sense with it bringing torrential destructive storms. The glowing parts inside of it do give off an electric vibe, as well, and it would counteract Primal Groudon's Fire/Ground typing quite nicely- which is why I was really surprised when it was just pure Water-type.

    Luxray definitely needs to be Electric/Dark. Enough said.

    [​IMG]
    Darkrai always seemed like a Ghost/Dark type to me, its design just screams ghostly. Dark type is still cool, but it could have gotten a huge boost from being part Ghost as well.

    Darmanitan really looks like a Fire/Fighting type, so I was surprised that it wasn't. It's still cool as a pure Fire type, though.

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    The Flabébé line just screams Grass/Fairy- they're fairies combined with actual flowers, for crying out loud. I really don't know why they're just pure Fairy when they learn so many grass moves and their designs so obviously reflect the Grass typing.

    I actually had these two in mind. I don't know how they didn't consider Luxray for a dark type.

    I'm guessing Blissey was just made purely a normal type because of her competitive use.

    Celebi should be grass/fairy. Psychic fits it but not to the same extent as fairy so I'd rather GameFreak did some restructure on it, though I understand the difficulty in doing so since it's been grass/psychic since its introduction. Would've been awesome, though.

    And the Gothita line should be psychic/dark, not fully psychic. Every time I run into it I have to do a double take to remember that it isn't a full-on dark type. ):

    Blastoise/Mega Blastoise, I think, should be Water/Steel type. It'd be a lot stronger defensively and it'd give Blastoise a lot of resistances (with a few more weaknesses).

    Jumping on Milotic being Water/Fairy.

    Goodra always struck me as being Dragon/Poison, instead of pure Dragon.

    Luxray yeah, Electric/Dark.

    I think it's dumb that Azurill isn't Water type like the rest of its family.

    I don't understand how Malamar is a Psychic type. Give it water or something, but just because you turned it down does not give it special powers!

    Flygon shouldn't be ground type at all, really. Instead, needs to be bug, especially Vibrava. First off, Trapinch is understandable considering he lived on the ground, but both Vibrava and Flygon can fly. Both look like a bug, and are in the egg group of bug. So, yeah.

    I suppose all the obvious once have already been mentioned yet, so I'll go ahead and say that Goodra is in no way a Dragon. I mean, really, look at it. Literally nothing about that thing's design makes me think "oh yep that's definitely a dragon". It's more like a Poison type, with liquid goo dripping from its body all the time. Really, not a dragon at all.
