Out of curiosity, why ignore the elephant in the room and make absolutely no mention of Vibrava and Flygon's obvious similarity to dragonflies? Sure,adult antlions and dragonflies aren't the same species, but the differences between the two are barely noticeable to anyone who isn't a bug expert. It is therefore possible that Vibrava and Flygon got their dragon typing from the from the dragonfly, rather than their references as mythological beasts in ancient bestiaries (a weak connection to the dragon type, in my opinion). In fact, there are some species of dragonflies referred to as sand dragons. Anyway, just thought it odd that there wasn't any reference to dragonflies considering their similar appearance. --Oleandervine 08:01, 27 July 2010 (UTC)
