Type changes for older gen Pokemon seem to happen only when it's one game after its debut appearance. Magnemite first appeared in Gen 1, and it gained a Steel typing one game later. Rotom first appeared in Gen 4, and its alternate formes gained new typings one game later. Gyarados had his chance to get a type change in Gen 2 with Magnemite, but Kingdra's presence prevented him from gaining a Dragon typing in fear of outclassing it.
