    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.
    Unlike Sarah Natochenny, our current voice actor for Ash is not a sound-alike. The character's personality has also severely changed due to the voice actor switch.
    Please sign on "FIRMAR", and help us make Ash Ketchum's voice actor return! We Latin American fans would really appreciate it!
    Edit: We're about to reach the goal of 10000! Thank you everyone!

    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.

    I mistook Absol for an Ice type.

    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)?

    Mega Torchic.

    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
