It is steel type because in alchemy the sun is linked with metal (and this is why its ability is full metal body) and solgaleo is literally "the lion that eats the sun". Sun&Moon take lots of inspiration from alchemy so you have to see it's typing not from the "real" point of view but from the alchemic one.
