Why is Goodra known as the Dragon Pokemon? (Does not fit)?

I know it is a dragon-type, but I am not talking about that. I'm talking about why it is known as the Dragon Pokemon. Just look at it. Too fat, too slimy, and too weird.

Now, Goodra is a Dragon type Pokemon. There's nothing wrong about that. However, I think I know why it is a Dragon type. Let's look at its Pre-Evo, Goomy.
When you look at Goomy, it looks like a slime or a slug, right? Well, it turns out that Game Freak actually based it off the Blue Dragon Sea-Slug.
Since Goomy is a Dragon type, there's no point replacing it's evolution with a different type, so I guess Game Freak made Goodra pure Dragon because of that.
Plus, the Pokedex Species for Goodra is the Dragon Pokemon.

The only accurate answer would be because Gamefreak wanted it to be like that. However Sliggoo shares some similarities with Dragonair which is also a Dragon-type. But, Goodra does look a bit like a Dragon to me. Dragon Tail, Dragon Hands, just ignore the goo falling out of it's hands and mouth. But it does look a bit too cute for a dragon-type.

Yeah, that is the only answer possible.
