    Default Pokemon Types you mistook as?

    If there's a similar thread to this, please merge it.

    Are there any pokemons you mistook their types as something else?


    I used to think the Piplup evos would gain an Ice-type, due to being based on penguins. Imagine my surprise when they were actually part Steel.

    Until this fairy stuff came out I thought charizard should be fire/dragon type. But now I am glad he is not.

    I thought Spinda was Psychic. But no, it's Normal. What a waste of an interesting design.

    I keep mistaking both Eelektrik and Eelektross for Electric/Water types.
    It doesn't matter if you aren't going to reach the goal, as long as you're still happy doing the trajectory.

    Altaria as Normal/Flying.
    Azurill as Water.
    Elgyem/Beheeyem as Psychic/Rock.
    Mudkip as Water/Ground.
    Onix as Rock.
    Pupitar as Rock/Dark.
    Seel as Water/Ice.
    Stantler as Normal/Psychic.
    Staryu as Water/Psychic.
    Steelix as Steel.
    Tangela-Tangrowth as Grass/Poison.
    Torkoal as Fire/Rock.
    Vibrava as Ground/Flying.

    So mostly confusion over which stage they gained/switched their typing.

    I was pretty sure Luxray was Electric/Dark and I am still disappointed that it isn't. Flygon's design screams Bug-type, yet it is Dragon/Ground... sadly.

    - Dunsparce as anything but Normal-type
    - Bulbasaur (and family) as pure Grass-type
    - Sudowoodo as Grass-type

    That's about it, I think.

    Thanks for reading.

    Groudon seems to have some Fire type in it, but it's only pure Ground.
    No.

    I thought Lugias were Ice/Flying because of the Pokemon 2000 movie. I didn't know it's actual type until I had one in my team...
    Azurill seemed to be Water type, but was surprised that it's just Normal. With the new Fairy-type around, I bet it's gonna be part Fairy.
    Groudon does seem like a Fire type, but it's just Ground...what a bummer.
    The Eelektross family...I'm surprised/disappointed that they're not Water...
    I was surprised that Noctowls were Normal/Flying, not Psychic/Flying.

    Luxray - Electric/Dark
    Golett, Golurk - Rock/Ghost
    Vibrava - part-Bug, at least.
    Palpitoad, Seisimitoad - pure Water

    ...Shouldn't Igglybuff and Wigglytuff be Fairy (now)?

    To this day I have to keep reminding myself that Psyduck and Golduck are not part Psychic-types.

    ?

    If Jigglypuff is Fairy now, its evolution and pre-evolution most likely are as well.

    This. I've tried using Surf, Leaf Blade, even Earthquake and I was wondering why none of those were super-effective. It was only after I caught one for myself that I found out it was pure Psychic.

    Also, I used to think Geodude was pure Rock because of the anime
