>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. )

I had an idea, so I just decided to share it and see how many people agree with me. I think Palkia is water type because it's supposed to bring oceans to mind, which are very big and cover a lot of space, just as steel is durable and covers a lot of time.

I really like this one :D

Makes a lot of sense, tbh.

Palkia is a water type because Dialga, Palkia and Giratina represent the three forms of matter:
Dialga is a steel type because it is the solid form.
Palkia is a water type because it is the liquid form.
And Giratina is a ghost type because it the gas form.
HOPE I HELPED!

But the states of matter have nothing to do with their roles.
