All other pseudo-legends have another typing. Dragonite, Tyranitar, Metagross, and all other pseudo-legends except Goodra. Why doesn't Goodra have a secondary typing like all the other pseudo-legends. Is there a specific reason for this?

by
I don't think so
Is there another pseudo-legend I missed that doesn't have a second typing?
Its name origin is goo+ dragon
what type do you think its first part of name origin should be?
Goodra should have poison typing because it's slimy itt learns sludge wave and bomb and since gen 6 introduced fairy poison is perfect game freak dumb
LOL
hmm balba is right I guess because first part of name origin= poison

Goodra, due to its Dragon type, elongated body shape, and retractable tentacles used for battling is probably based on the Lou Carcolh, a mythical serpent/mollusk creature from French folklore.

Like its pre-evolutions, it could also be based on soft bodied gastropods, such as slugs and nudibranch; in particular, the "blue dragon" sea slug; Goodra's Pokédex entry may be a reference to slug's retractable eyes, which retract when they are in danger.

Alternatively, it could be based on the yōkai called Shussebora, meaning "ascended trumpet shell", which is a trumpet shell snail that lives 1000 years in the mountains, 1000 on the plains, and 1000 at sea, then will ascend and turn into a dragon.

It's probably not Poison type due to it's origins. Goodra seems to be based off of serpents/mollusks, as stated above. Technically, it should be Water/Dragon, due to the mentions of sea slugs and so forth. The most interesting part to me is this:

Just a plain Dragon.

As for it learning moves such as Sludge Wave, many Dragon-types can utilize elemental magic both in Pokemon and in myths. Hydreigon learns moves like Surf and Flamethrower, Dragonite learns Hail and Sandstorm, etc.
