    Default Mawile and other oddities

    What is mawile and what qualifies it as steel type? Does it have steel teeth on its false mouth?

    Please add more "hey, why is that?" things about pokemon! Thanks. :)

    ----------------

    Edit: Thanks for the theories, I'm considering this solved now from Paragon's post, but I'm still gonna post stuff here.

    Personally I always thought it was a carnivorous plant like a steel variant of Victrebell.

    Why is Jirachi a Steel/Psychic type? I've never understood why it is half Steel type.

    I assumed it (Jirachi) was part steel due to it's association with comets and possibly asteroids.

    Actually, it had iron horns that, in time, evolved into a fake mouth.

    Luvdisk is quite odd.

    What is it? a fish?

    Mawile is based on a Japanese demon ghost (yokai). So it would be more fitting if Mawile was ghost type.

    Why is Palkia typed as part water and Dialga as steel?
    Is space = water and time = steel?
    Or is it because Palkia, Pearl's mascot, pearl = water
    and dialga, diamond = steel? Now that doesn't make so much sense.

    Just to add to the luvdisc bit, it's a butterfly discus to be specific. They're a mutant strain with no tail (it can also refer to a specific striping pattern with or without a tail). The middle right picture on that page of the pigeon blood butterfly discus is pretty much luvdisc right there.
