A Theory I had...
Has anybody else ever wondered why Palkia, the Master of Space, is part water type? I know it controls Space, and in no way does that encompass control over liquids, letalone water (at least not to a certain degree), but it is the mascot of Pokémon Pearl, and Pearls, as a mineral are found underwater, within clams.
While I'm on the subject, ever wonder why Dialga is part steel? I think its because Diamonds, as far as we know, are the "hardest" Mineral on earth, and Dialga, as the mascot of Pokémon Diamond, must take on said responcibility of being like a Diamond, bearing Steel as its Primary Type, as in the games, Steel-type Pokémon are often thought of as the "hardest" Pokémon (From Steelix's LeafGreen PokéDex entry: Its body has been compressed deep under the ground. As a result, it is even harder than a diamond) .
Whether this is coincidence from giving them their resisting types (Palkia only has one weakness, for example) or an intentional easter egg planted by Nintendo, I do not know. I figure somebody has already thought of this before, but... just, uh, trying to keep the conversation going... Koratus 04:39, 19 June 2009 (UTC)
