>>46787070>Except Dragon (the element) is different from dragon (the animal)
Dragon and Bug are the only types named after specific creatures, and all bug pokemon aside from Drapion (who isn't even a bug technically) have Bug in their typing. If Pokemon was a dragon, then it would have the Dragon type.>By your logic, Yamper isn't a dog because it isn't a Dog type, even though it's explicitly called a "herding dog"
If Dog was a real Pokemon type, then, yes, Yamper should be a Dog type. And if Charizard, Aerodactyl and Gyarados were real dragons, then they would've had the Dragon type.
