He's based on a chinese dragon.

Quote:
Chinese dragons are occasionally depicted with bat-like wings growing out of the front limbs, but most do not have wings, as their ability to fly (and control rain/water, etc.) are mystical and not seen as a result of their physical attributes.

They also probably wanted to keep him from being too OP by giving him a 4x weakness.

Not to mention that a Water/Dragon Pokemon in RBY would effectively have no weaknesses.

Well that might answers why it is a flying type :)

but since it is a flying type.. is it possible that it learns some flying moves then? even though I don't mean like being able to fly or do aerial ace...
