The presence of fins in their back, the fish-like head and the pearls are possibly the reason for its Water type.

Its secondary type may also originate from the weightlessness one experiences in water, such as the fact that astronauts use water to train for space expeditions.

Just saying, I was already thinking of the second reason before I went on Bulbapedia. They just happened to think of it too.

I thought its because palkia remembles pearls and pearls come from underwater
I thought those were wings on its back it can fly in the anime
Then it is a flying fish (those are real. Look it up. )
