The Top Ten

My most powerful pokemon in my team is my dragonite. I also like the fact that he still learns moves at high level such as hyper beam and hurricane so you never get bored of the moves your dragonite knows. I agree that he does have higher stats some legendaries. Also he has a cool desgin and can learn HM's like surf, strength and fly. Garchomp may be immune to electric type attacks and great speed but the best move it can learn without a consequence is dragon rush! Dragonites is huricane. But my absolute favourite thing about dragonite is his movepool!
Dragonite's derpy in a really strong way. Also now that I look a Goodra and Dragonite it kinda looks like the soul of dragonite went into a pile of goo and for some reason that made it happier and it turned into goodra. Goodra's derpier, but the slime concept it unappealing. But when dragonite wants to he'll hyper beam your ass to the moon. Also I like and loathe mega charizard X at the same time. I honestly hate charizard fans, as they are what ruin charizard for me by worshipping it as a god. However mega charizard X's design is very good but I hate how he gets two mega evolution AND gets the best one. YOU'RE NOT A VERY GOOD Pokemon, CHARIZARD!
Dragonite definitely. Has stats better than some legendary pokemon. It always scares me whenever had to challenge Lance, because of dragonites (unless I have an ice type pokemon)

Garchomp is honestly the best Pokemon I've ever used. Raised one in platinum from a Gabite to a now level 70 Garchomp. It has amazing speed so I can always count on it attacking first in most situations, has excellent stats, and an amazing move set. It also is one of the most bad ass looking Pokemon out there. I love Dragonite so much but it seemed like Garchomp was more powerful. I had both on my team and my Garchomp would get me through whatever my Dragonite couldn't even though they were either the same or two levels apart.
Garchomp is a really fast dragon type. His attavks are super strong!
Garchomp is a really good dragon type he has good stats, has a decent move pool and was one of my best pokemon I ever trained I ever caught and used in pokemon platinum

My Salamance is almost a level 100, 15 more levels! He can kick anyone's butt, and we have been through a lot together. Actually, my cousin who has soul silver (I have Heartgold) used a cheat to catch lance's salamence and traded it to me. I don't use cheats but sometimes he lets me have some of his extra pokemon from cheats. Anyways, salamence is my strongest dragon type and I beat everything with him and Typhlosion. Usually in double battles with them I use earthquake and it doesn't effect salamence so it's perfect!
I think Salamence is just as good and or better than Dragonite. Can do everything that Dragonite, probably better too, lighter than Dragonite, making him faster, not faster than Flygon, if Charizard was a dragon, I would consider him, but I will go with Salamence, for his swift looks, power, and has been one of my greatest dragon pokemon.
Is my favourite pokemon, has been since I first set eyes on it, and it's been on all of my games, from emerald, to diamond, platinum, heart gold, white, and black 2, and of course I'm gonna use him in X. Over all a beast, great power, and speed, a brilliant sweeper. Brilliant over all, if you ask me.

He is ver amazing can take out anyone with a big punch in their mouth. He us unstoppable my hydre learned

Dragon claw
Outrage and much more

He is too cool
Hydreigon is an amazing Dragon type Pokemon wherever you R.In the card game, in the video game. But let me get this straight, HYDREIGON IS A BOSS.
Never used before but plan to in pokemon Y. Love his design and type is very unique. 3 heads are better than 1.

Flygon is one of the best pokemon you can have teamed with salmance. I recommend raising him because his stats are high and his moves are unbelievable
Before gen V, Flygon was the only dragon with Fly not to be weak to kids throwing rocks. After gen V, Flygon is still the only pokemon here with an OHKO move (Fissure, must be breed 2 level 100 Trapinch. Come on guy, I only went through the Sinnoh Elite Four 14 times to get the lovebugs up there). Has a nice balance of attack and special attack, and looks like a dragonfly, what's not to like?
How can you beat a Pokemon that is both Dragon and Ground? Generation I doesn't have much cool ground Pokemon so Flygon got me a ground Pokemon and a dragon Pokemon!

Being pure dragon in its final stage makes Haxorus only weak to two types (before 6th gen. ) both of which he can cover. The one I trained knew:
Dual chop (signature move)
Dragon dance
Brick break (against both steel and ice)
Outrage (try to save until the end, so you don't kill yourself in confusion)

Its stats are lower than the top dragons but his attack and speed can surpass them which can make the difference up.
Haxorus it totally the best having armor and a batlle axe on his jaw than can slice through steel beams easily makes him even that more AWESOME he is easily hands down the BEST dragon type Pokèmon!
This pokemon is pure awesomeness

Kingdra is 7? He is like a total beast, I mean face if you are seeing a seahorse with a crown while you are swimming, then you better hope its not mad
Kingdra is obviously the strongest non legendary dragon pkmn. It is a water/dragon, so attacks like ice beam and thunderbolt should not be very effective, only a dragon type attack can should do a thing to it
Hum, why so low? That thing rocks! It has only one weakness!

8Mega Charizard X
The X mega form of charizard changing its type from fire flying to fire dragon with tough claws ability increasing physical At. The dragon type also cancels the water weakness meaning mega X Charizard isn't weak to water!
I want to kiss him because of how many times he's saved me
More comments about Mega Charizard X

Awesome speed, considerable special attack, and not too bad on physical and special defense. The only thing which lacks a bit may be physical attack, as with a favorable nature it stills "low". Even like that, I think this Pokemon looks AWESOME and is definitely going to my team ( already training ).
When I first saw this Pokemon's art I REALLY liked it. And thank Wonder trade for getting me a noibat I could easily evolve into a Noivern earlier on in game. Nice ton' there, The Thief! (That's its name)... Best bat Pokemon there is.


Now this isn't my favorite dragon type but I would like to give it som praise. WARNING! THIS IS A VERY HARD Pokemon TO USE COMPETITIVE WISE BUT IN THE RGHT HANDS IT CAN LEAD A TEAM TO VICTORY IF USED RIGHT! The fastest dragon type and a good SPAer. Hail to the king of bats. I have reaserched this and if EV trained correctly USE IT! Good luck.

So elegant! I love Altaria! It's cute, strong, and gorgeous! How is it all the way at the bottom #9? We have to give it a boost! Obviously altaria is the best
Adorable, awesome, cute, elegant. What else? Incredibly strong. This boss kicks ass and totally deserves a rank 5 or higher.
I frankly don't care what people say about Altaria. It's beautiful, strong, and one of the most trustworthy Pokémon I've ever used. It really got me through in my Emerald game and once I transferred it over to my Pearl game, it swept through the Sinnoh Elite Four. This is the moveset I've used:

Nature: Brave (Item: Leftovers)
Dragon Claw
Cotton Guard
Steel Wing

It's just very appealing and strong to me. I wish others would feel the same and not follow the crowd and ALWAYS pick Garchomp or Dragonite. Yes, they are both very good Pokémon that I, yes, have trained myself, but for some reason, Altaria just comes out on top. I love it!

The Contenders

This thing is a beast, it can learn different types of attacks to defeat other types. Also has good defense, my level 100 blastoise hit diantha's goodra with ice beam and it still had a little less than half of its hp left.
Goodra is awesome. With a high Sp. Definitely base of 150, you can expect it to tank fairy and ice moves.
Goodra is awesome because it looks cool
More comments about Goodra

Its shape is awesome. It is quite strong and difficult to beat. Just check out its ability and be amazed. Capture this pokemon in black 2. It is the best, awesome, surprising, cool & elegant

Why is this pokemon so low down. It's better than zwelious. Look at it's evolution. He's a butt kicker. And by the way, why is torterra 11th :-) not even a dragon type laugh out loud.
Also by the way whats with kingdra lower than zwielous:(
The reason this is not high up is because dragonite is on the list. :P


ADORABLE! And kick ass!


He's T Rex no doubt my favorite plus his defense really isn't all that bad.
A power house. Strong jaw, adamant, 6 iv ev trained in atk and spd with thunder+ice fang egg move and crunch earthquake to top it off. You shouldn't under estimate this dude
Aww only a contender :'(

My favourite Pokemon. Period.
He is awesome. He has two haeds!

16Mega Gyarados
This is Water-Dark, not Water-Dragon.

Can we please pretend he's dragon type?

This should be higher up on the list


It has many resistances and has great type coverage. Even though it is slow, it will do very great in a trick room team.

Mewtwo is the best cause its found at level 80
It can hand any Pokemon's it to them mewtwo is the best Pokemon eben without it's mega stone X (it's mega stone Y makes it a wuss HA HA HA!

Poor magikarp please vote for this
Its Magikarp why not?
Derp splash and karp
More comments about Magikarp

Fraxure is wayy better than Zweilous and Noivern. Torterra shouldn't even be on this list considering the fact that he/she is not dragon type - he is grass ground type but not dragon

Uh... This list is top 10 NON legendary Dragon types.
Zekrom is seriously overlooked.

They are adorable and evolve into death haxourus.



He is far better than Zekrom. Reshiram has better moves than FAT OLD ZEKROM! Reshiram is as good as Dragonite!
This is legendary dumbass
Second best fire type viktiny best fire type



What the hell guys, this thing is rape!
150 base definitely and S. definitely, swords dance it a couple of time then change form 150 base atk and you can sweep a whole team with a shadow sneak!
If you find yourself in a tricky situation against a Salamance or dragonite, king shield, change form to defense, lower their attack then go for an iron head!

It really is a grass/dragon type!


Arceus is a Legendary.
It has a dragon type form it should me number 1 even if its legendary
