Default Does Gyarados look weird with no arms or legs?

The more I look at it, the more I think "wtf were Nintendo thinking". I mean, yeah it's a huge dragon serpent thing, but Dragonite got arms and legs, Salamence got legs.

Do you think Gyarados looks weird with no arms or legs?

I was about to say 'Ah, but Chinese dragons don't have arms or legs' but then remembered they do, just really short ones. xD

And now you mention it, yes. Now everytime I see Gyarados, I'm going to think 'DEFORMITY!' D:

Wait. When did Gyarados lose his arms?

Geez, everybody's getting plastic surgery these days. I never thought it would get this extreme...

Well, it's kind of like a fish-serpent-dragon thing, and fish/serpents don't have arms or legs, so I don't think it's really that weird~

I have look at him for 11 years with no legs, so for Gyarados it looks perfectly natural to me.

Yeah, he's a sea monster, sort of like a a dragon, but not. If he had arms or legs(well, the ones I'm picturing), they'd be completely useless.

OFT.

Also, you all are pretty mean. Gyarados is armless so we must appreciate him.

It'd look extremely weird. I'm so going to sprite that.

Gyarados looks fine, one of the best Pokemon designs of all time.

It's a fish. Why would it have arms or legs?

Not all dragons that fly have arms. Or wings, for that matter.

There's levitation. :D

But he certainly can't fly. He's part flying because he's based off of a Japanese myth.

Nah, it looks fine.

Even though Serpent usually have small arms and hands, I feel Gyarados would look awkward with them.

Besides, it's not a Dragon. It may know Dragon-typed moves, it's Water/Flying typed.
