Best Dragon Pokemon


The Top TenXW


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.

Yes dragonite my opinion why dragonite is the best Pokemon is because of he's tanking and power house dragonite is very slow but there is something why he is slow cause he's a tank he can tank a hit pretty well and do one back I like to do my opinions on the stats and not because its look or because he is my favorite Pokemon (which he's not) or because he's a dragon and so you would think oh he is a dragon and looks very cute or cool NO I'm all about the stats and how he plays is cards right

Love him he's my highest level 84

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.

The dragon type emperor who is indestructible

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.

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)

Rayquaza rules. It was one of the first legendary dragons, and it will eat anyone and anything.

Two words. Dragon Ascent.

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

That thing was a pain to take out when I battled Lance for a second time in Soul Silver. Definitely worth using.

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.

I like this guy

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.

I don't really have a care for haxorus. I can easily one shot him in the Pokemon league with archeops. I personally think he should be 8 9 or 10.

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

Awesome moves and looks sweet as a shiny

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

Easily swept by a level 1 rim burr it's so weak and awful deserves to be last

Palkia is boss only weakness is dragon so that's bos

Epic pokemon, great moves in movest, one weaknes

Palkia is too op

What a great founder of justice

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

Roar of time is swag all time favourite dragon type move. You rock Dialga

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.

Why is reshiram the version mascot for Pokemon black? She should be the version mascot for white! Reshiram's the white one, and zekrom's the black one. So how come their games are the opposite of their color?

The Same thing as zekrom except with fire and its good attack is replaced with Spec. Attack and it has lower defense.

Dragon breath, slash, extrasensory? FUSION FLARE could you get better than that

11Mega Charizard X

Why out this awesome thing last? Dude this bad boy is amazing. Put this Pokemon on the top and be happy!

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

Mega Charizard knows all the normal moves but they are way better. plus charmander and charmeleon and charizard are my favorite

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.

The best typing ever, a ghost dragon? How can you beat that?

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.

Why the hell is Zekrom no.13?! He is the best dragon ever in the world. When his mood is off, the whole world may get off due to storms! Then why he not on top?

Zekrom is beast, it can use really good moves, and has less weaknesses than Reshiram

He's amazing! But hard to acquire esp if you play earlier Pokemon titles :(

V14 Comments

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

People ALWAYS forget about kingdra because they think gyarados is the 'best non-legendary pokemon'. This is prof. That kingdra is AWESOME:-)

It's a great Pokemon water and Dragon with its ability to power up critical hits its amazing great moves

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.

You have got to watch Kyurem The Sword Of Justice. In the movie the elder said that Iris wouldn't like the strongest dragon type Pokemon. Know why? Because KYUREM IS THE STRONGEST DRAGON TYPE Pokemon BUT IT IS ALSO A ICE TYPE. Later it is mentioned as the strongest Pokemon. So Kyurem is the strongest dragon type Pokemon!

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.

Ice + dragon so cooling and chilling

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.

I own a Latios and is the core of my team, it can bring destruction if used well. Also he looks cute for a dragon with an amount of coolness

Latios is so epic Latios should be in the top ten GET HIM IN THE TOP TEN! Man is he cute to.

My friend demolished my with him.

17Arceus (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

Very good, but I prefer pixie plate. Still has the best stats out of all THE Pokemon! Until mega Mewtwo that is..

Its not a real. Dragon type

The only rock/dragon Pokemon

Awesome my favorite Pokemon

Tyramtrum is one of the coolest prehistoric Pokémon I know but it would be better if there was a spinosaurus version.

All hail the all powerful Goodra

This glob of slime is a pseudo legendary pur lease don't make me laugh he is awful

I vote Goodra, but mostly because it's the only dragon type on my team.

One of the good dragon types with no times four weaknesses

20Mega Sceptile

Mega Sceptile is badass. He doesn't even need to be turned towards you to kill you! He can just turn around, and kill you without even looking at you. That is badass! He is so strong in competitive too! He destroys HO teams. I have 6-0ed HO teams with him in OU on Pokemon Showdown. Vote for Sceptile.

The grass/dragon combo is too good no fire weakness (replaced by dragon/fairy) he can wreck me water types and has ways to fight away the rare fairy types (not a good choice for fairy gym) he was already my favorite starter but could get anialated by for re types now not some much he rules!

Grass/Dragon what could go wrong

Just awesome can't be the new look and type
