lol so many answers and 1 simple answer.
Well, it most definately based off of a japanese water dragon (can't remember which). But, the pokemon in terms of types, isn't a dragon type. He is a flying (I still don't know how, again probably dragon look) and water type. Now you can tell your brother that you were right! :D
Don't necropost...

Well, congratulations, YOU'RE RIGHT, Gyarados is a Water/Flying types even though many dragon elite four people have them. Even though he's not a dragon type, he still rocks!

no, he can learn dragon moves
But he's Water/Flying.
Plus, the reason he's Water/Flying is because the only Dragon move at that time during the the development of Red and Green was Dragon Rage, only doing 40 damage. So Gyarados as a Water/Dragon type had no weakness since Water resists Ice. For some reason, Nintendo decided to have it be Water/Flying to fix this other than either making a new Dragon move or make Ice beat Water (Two logical things to do)
Gyarados's mega evolution should have been dragon type. (letdown)
this dude is right you bums that are commenting or downvoting that he/she is is wrong

He is water/flying, which helps against dragon and ground types, but not against thunder types.

Gyrados is a Water-Flying dual-type. It can still learn Dragon-type moves, though.

Despite in everyway looking like a Dragon, it isn't! It is Water and Flying, but can only learn 1 flying move! Bounce by the move tutor! Magikarp can even learn it! It should be Water and Dragon with Levitate!

Gyarados is Water-Flying, but is in the ''Dragon'' egg group, so it can breed with most dragons.
