    adnimTechnically 行けない is as ok as is いけない. But since it is part of a grammatical structure, the "directed walking" aspect of 行 is unpreferable, thus Hiragana-form is found more often. 
    Kurt SchmuckerThis entry has a typo in it. Clearly the "形" is not part of the entry (unless it is completely silent. )
    I suspect that the "形" in "Gerund form (Vて形)" was made part of the entry by mistake.
