The Top Ten

1
Dragonite
Dragonite is a very balanced pokemon with all stats except for speed his attack and special attack capabilities are unmatched and it has a withe move pool with TMs HMs and naturally learned moves it will take 12 highly powerful pokemon in order to take this bad boy out I am not surprised that he is in the crown he kicks butt and takes names he will not be denied his place EVER
Dragonite: Both cute, and extremely strong. Definitely one of my favourite pokemon. Dragon and flying type make an extremely strong combination.
The only Stat Dragonite has a problem with is speed, which doesn't really matter if you're a tank. His attacks are powerful, his high defense and special defense make it easy to use dragon dance than kill your opponent with Dragon Claw or Giga Impact or any attack based move.

2Salamence
I think the guy who made this was asleep because Salamence can use moves that other dragon pokemons can't use and plus first it was a shelgon it must have height defensive and it was also a bagon and people say that bagon has a steel head so it also has strong attack and now it is a Salamence it has more speed because it is now a flying type and that is why Salamence is the best dragon type pokemon EVER
This guy is my secret weapon, powerful, fast and with INTIMIDATE ability Salamence rocks, Also you can choose, Physical or Special or just fast. Whatever was your choice Salamence won't dissapoint U. Just look at J's Salamence, he stop a Hyper beam from regigigas with a Dragon pulse.
That thing was a pain to take out when I battled Lance for a second time in Soul Silver. Definitely worth using.

3Garchomp
Powerful, fast, and most attacks use pure energy instead of element power. Looks like the kind of pokemon I would only attack with an equally powerful dragon, which is hard to come by
Garchomp is a king in dragon type. Garchomp big and brave at all time it will trust you and love till they very end. Garchomp is the best.
Dragonite and Salamence are very good dragon types, them being flying and all.
But Garchomp dominates the battlefield. with a base stat of 600, it excels in speed, attack, special attack, and defense. it may learn ground type moves which wont effect dragonite and salamence, BUT, it has an absolutely huge movepool, being able to learn water, fire, electric, dark, fighting, and rock type moves, as well as its base types, dragon and ground. It is also better than salemence and dragonite as it can mega-evolve, and they can't. plus Garchomp's ability, Sand Veil, raises its evasion in a sandstorm, creating a perfect combo with the move sandstorm, which it will learn around level 20. All in All, Garchomp is the best dragon type Pokemon.

4Rayquaza
Why the hell is Rayquaza number 8?! He is the best dragon pokemon ever! He easily beats Dragonite. His attacks are more powerful than that puny dragon. Also has a higher sped than Dragonite. He learns Dragon Claw, Outrage, Dragon Pulse, and Dragon Dance. Does Dragonite learn those and use it to its advantage. Uh... No! Rayquaza is the best and will always be the best dragon Pokemon ever.
Rayquaza rules. It was one of the first legendary dragons, and it will eat anyone and anything.
This is my favourite legendary pokemon and I think it should be higher up it kills kills and only kills facing it will result in death you want to beat the elite four he will do it for you with ease
(but garachomp and flygon are also some of my favourites they all kick but)

5Hydreigon
He is very powerful. Seriously one of my favorite Pokemon ever. I recommend this one as a top Dragon Type
It's a total pain to get, but it's so worth it once you do! Mine knows Crunch, Dragon pulse, Dragon rush, and Tri attack.
Wow... This almighty power house can kill... With its wide combination if moves...
Its deadly attack stat... It can basically take on anything... Thumbs up for this big fella

6Haxorus
Pure dragon. He is deadly. Use dragon dance to power his speed and attack and hit them with a dragon claw earthquake or outrage and you got an unstoppable machine. He is resistant to four types and only weakened to two. I don't really like dragon pokemon but trust me Haxorus is a beast and will notlet you down! #swag
Overall, an unstoppable nightmare for opponents who haven't taken the time to prepare a team to counteract the axe dragon. Between its lack of type weaknesses and high attack potential this pokemon can KO any variety of teams. It completely surpasses Garchomp in both type and damage potential. With a pure Baton pass set up this pokemon can sweep an opponents entire team.
Let's give Black and White Pokemon a chance, shall we? Come on! Yes, I know that it's sort of a imitation of Garchomp, but it still has some different things, and those make it what it is.

7Flygon
In emerald I'm planning on getting my self a trapinch or if I have enough time a shiny one. This is honestly hands down my favorite pokemon and the whole reason is because I am the kid at my school who loves bugs and is liked by many and I was born in 2000 the year of the dragon. If you put a dragon and a bug together you get flygon bummer it's part ground type but truthfully I could care less it is just awesome all around and holds a special place in my heart along with shedinja just perfect pokemon try the two of the if you haven't yet it'll make you what to say to "To victory. "
Ah, Flygon I remember this pokemon as one of my trusty sidekicks from my Sapphire days the attack and speed stats are great, but what really lies in this pokemon is its easiness to obtain, you can find their pre-evolved forms in deserts commonly and are a good start for dragon collectors.
Easy to obtain and an interesting combination of ground and dragon was a sweeper style Pokemon I frequently use on black worked very well with my alteria and swellow I love the evolutionary forms from a weird orange thing to a sort of dragonfly type creature the move set got a good boost in black and white his easy obtain and low level evolution make him a great addition to the team ny second favourite would have to be alteria who, I'm sad to see is not on here his moves can be quite lethal if put together properly and who could deny that sweet lil blue phoenix face

8Dialga
Dialga is the best. It is the only dragon type which is not weak to other dragon types, it is the only Pokemon that can learn Roar of Time which is the strongest dragon type move, it is immune to 1 type and resistant to 9, it has the highest base stat total of all Steel-type Pokemon. it's base stat is 680 which is same as Mew-two, it is tied with Blade Forme Aegislash for the highest Special Attack base stat of all Steel-type Pokemon, No other Pokemon shares the same type combination as Dialga and It is not weak to fairy types because of it's unique typing.
Well Dialga is the only one that is not weak against other dragon type and he resist lots of types so he can survive longer. Dialga's Roar of Time is SO STRONG! It can kill an opponent in 1 or 2 hits. Only Dialga Roar of Time is the strongest of all Dragon type moves.

PokemonLegendary

Dialga is super awesome! He is the best with only 1 real weakness. Dragon steel is a really good combo

9Palkia
Epic pokemon, great moves in movest, one weaknes
It is unbelievably I beat the elite four with just him
Palkia is boss only weakness is dragon so that's bos

10Reshiram
I like Reshiram Black was my second (or third) Pokemon game, it can also learn a lot of strong moves like dragon pulse, outrage, dragon claw, and draco meteor to top off the cake, also could kick Zekrom's butt as Reshiram, he's simply awesome looking too.
With just Draco meteor, outrage, blue flare and fusion flare and this blue eyed Pokemon I finished off the elite four.
He should be at least one below ZEKROM or 1 above ZEKROM, he is the same thing except fire.
The Same thing as zekrom except with fire and its good attack is replaced with Spec. Attack and it has lower defense.

The Contenders

11Giratina
The blend of both dark and dragon types is amazing and you will dominate all of your friends with this pokemon. The High HP stat makes it take at least two highly trained pokemon to take it down and the good Spec. Attack and Attack stats will ensure it wont happen any time soon the only pokemon that has ever beaten my Giratina was a Raquaza AND my giratina had to be softened up first by a salamance.
Giratina is such a great pokemon. He has two forms with different stats for each so you can have the advantage. Shadow force is an amazing move as well. It breaks through protect. He is more powerful than Dialga AND Palkia combined! So do yourself a favor and get Giratina to be #1 on the list. He deserves it.
I already spoke about this beast of a Pokemon on the top ten ghist types. same applies for dragon types. The guy below me is an idiot, Giratina is Dragon/Ghost.

Anyone else notice how gen 1 Pokemon dominate most of the lists? These things are invalid. When you people overcome your nostalgia then they may be accurate.

12Mega Charizard X
This thing is amazing. It's actually a dragon, its blue and black and stuff. It's just awesome.
First you think its a fire flying type then bamm its a fire breathing dragon literally
He is the best dragon type ever he could beat the crap out of dragonite I believe he should be 1st. He also looks awesome so vote for mega charizard x

13Zekrom
An electric dragon? That is Awesome! That was my quoted words when I first heard about this pokemon being made, it has a high attack which is good for dragon pokemon.
Zekrom is beast, it can use really good moves, and has less weaknesses than Reshiram
Zekrom is BOSS because his color is awesome and he is freking A legendary and he is a dragon type and electric type
More comments about Zekrom

14Kyurem
One of the downfalls of dragon types is it's weakness to ice. He's an ice/dragon type. And he can't get picked up for a sky drop, which is another plus. I don't know about you guys, but other than Charizard and Rayquaza, this guy's my favorite.
It said in the fifteenth movie that Kyurem is the most powerful dragon type Pokemon because its ability to change forms makes it wield the power of Reshiram and Zekrom. That means it should be above both on the top ten list.
It is said in the anime that kyurem is the most strongest dragon type pokemon ever

15Kingdra
Well first of its typing is amazing with only 1 weakness unlike salamence and dragonite with 3. Competitivley it can sweep with the ability swift swim. Its stat are good all around. Its design is also awesome! By the way salamence is a copy and paste of dragonite :/ Why the heck is druddigon here
The only dragon that isn't super effected my ice moves. So it's only weakness is dragon moves and plus his speed is something else =D
Beast pokemon

So good it's crazy

16Arceus (Dragon Type)
Personally, I don't think an Arceus with a dragon plate counts as a legit dragon type.
Arceus is the god of Pokemon and in the 11th movie he is able to deflect attacks with his plates
Arceus is a normal type but he haves plates of all the types he is everything

17Goodra
All hail the all powerful Goodra
He's incredible for a starting competitive team
Gooey dragon thing who flogs arse! Sky high special defense and special attack. this thing is one of the best new Pokémon in x and y and for good reason.
More comments about Goodra

18Latios
I think this is better than latios because I pwned my friend with its speed stat. It also gets recover, and mine knows surf, recover, draco meteor, and psychic.
Same thing as Latias except with higher Spec. Attack and lower Spec. Defense which is bad because its HP stat is only 3 but I played one for a while and it was pretty good.
Latios is so epic Latios should be in the top ten GET HIM IN THE TOP TEN! Man is he cute to.

19Tyrantrum
The only rock/dragon Pokemon
DinoDoom come upon all who oppose him!
Awesome my favorite Pokemon

20Noivern
Noivern is very easily the best dragon type there is! He/she is just overall amazing and the fastest Dragon type there is! You have to admit he is amazing!
Why the heck is noivern here! He easily can beat any non legend ratings is the worst way to decide about Pokemon
Noivern can beat all dragons easily, noivern should be number 1

21Mega Charizard Y
He's awesome! In my opinion, he's better than charizard X
Ya, even though he's not a dragon type he's still AWESOME!
My friend beat the black and white Pokemon with him he rocks

22Altaria
Dragon flying bird thing
My altaria kills all...
It's a bird that looks cool and has wing clouds. It can easily beat garados and can learn
More comments about Altaria

23Mega Ampharos
He is a huge monster in trick room with a whopping 45 speed, 90/110/105 bulk is amazing with typing both hyper defensive and hyper offensive. 165 is only 25 stats away from being the best special attack in the game, and a shallow yet AMAZING movepool, with the best moves being focus blast, thunder Bolt, Dragon pulse, power gem, signaal beam, cotton guard, and all the plus ability exclusive moves. The question is why aren't you voting him?
HAIR END OF DISCUSSION
Come on how come you guys can't comment about the new Mega evolution for ampharos? He could learn signal beam, thunderbolt, thunder punch and the best of all thunder!

24Dragonair

25Zygarde
Zygarde needs more love! I love him for his mysteriousness.
Its got aura reverse

26Regice
The coolest dragon type out there, because this thing is definitely a dragon.
Yup it is a dragon

27Gyarados
He's based on the Chinese legend " dragon gate " a carp swims up stream swims up a waterfall and jumps over the gate to become a dragon. The only reason he's not a dragon " type" is because water/dragon would be too OP. So they gave him a redundant flying type. Almost all the dragon trainer npc's use him. He knows good ragon moves and He looks like a Chinese dragon he should be top 10 at least
He's based off of an actual dragon legend. The dragon gate. A carp swims up stream swims up a waterfall to jump the dragon gate to become a dragon. If his typing was water/dragon and with his stats and movepool he would be too OP. He even looks like a Chinese dragon. He should definitely get at least top 10
He is not a dragon lingers stole his title from him but he is still the best Pokemon on this list

28Deino
He's much rarer than all of these

29Goomy
I like goomy she or he is beutiful and his?

30Glaceon
Glaceon isn't a dragon type... Dumb...
Obviously the best dragon type in the game

31Bagon
Aww one day you fly bagon..

32Dratini
The first dragon type ever, and the best. it's shed skin cures himself from special conditions. it can also learn all attack

33Noibat

34Missingno

35Fraxure

36Gible

37Latias
How is Torterra above this?!
Anyway, it is much faster than most other Dragon Pokemon, so that gives it an edge. Also, it looks cool!
A nice mixture of Dragon and Psychic its one of the faster legendaries and this makes it hard to hit with most attacks.

38Dragalge

39Axew
Who doesn't love Axew? Axew is the cutest dragon type Pokemon with no doubt!

40Caterpie
Caterpie = OP. OHKO any Pokemon in the game laugh out loud noobs.

41Kakuna

42Druddigon
His ability is amazing! Rough skin hurts them every time he gets touched. He's strong and fast, wiped out the entire dragon gyms leaders pokemon alone
Favorite Pokemon people really should give him more of a chance smh...
Great Pokemon deserves a better place

43Aerodactyl
He needs more love. It's a great Pokemon.
What it's a dragon and flying type

44Magikarp
Increíble dragon tipe, if you don't have one in your team what are you doing? His base stats of 890 and his moveset "Earthquake outrage hyper beam and high kick" are the evidence of his awesomeness. His passive ability Safeguard prevents him of mostly all states, no one can beat him, neither all trainers in the world, very hard to fich with super rod and can pass though dimensions
Best Pokemon there is.
The strongest dragon type. I cleared the elite four with it.
