The first time i seen gyarados,i thought it was a water/dragon type pokemon, so i was not worried when trying to catch it with my pikachu. So my pikachu used thunder shock and i was mindblown! gyarados fainted!!!! so after i caught another one with a different pokemon, i checked its type, and to my misbelief, gyarados is water/flying!
So did anyone of u ever thought that gyarados was water/dragon? Actually, why was gyarados water/flying? i don't think i have seen one flew before in the anime nor the manga. In the video game, i don't think gyarados learned any flying type moves at all! It can't even learn fly!(plus, a gyarados flying a trainer across the region seems much more logical than a pidgey doing that....) In fact, gyarados does learn some great dragon type moves, like dragon rage or dragonbreath.
So the question is, do u think gyarados's flying type should be replaced with a dragon type?
