Best Dragon Pokemon


The Top Ten

1 Rayquaza Rayquaza Rayquaza is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. It lives in the ozone layer, and frequently stops battles with Kyogre and Groudon, two other Legendaries.

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 is the only pokemon that can mega evolve without a mega stone, which means it can hold an item, unlike other mega-evolving pokemon. Also, it has one of the highest base stats when it mega evolves, only tied with Mega Mewtwo at base 780. It also has access to powerful STAB moves such as Outrage and Dragon Ascent, as long with other powerful moves like Hyper Beam. In short, the best dragon - and flying - pokemon ever.

This guy's outrage 1 shots almost any pokemon the only bad thing about all dragons is those darn fairy types

The best dragon type legendary pokemon forever.

2 Garchomp Garchomp Garchomp, known in Japan as Gaburias, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Because if you put dragon tail and outrage best way to win a fight

When I leaned about him:"wait wait wait. This guy is a tank, an attacker, and epic looking. Where do I find him!

Best looking, Best stats, terrible mega, but still best dragon type, any day

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

3 Dragonite Dragonite Dragonite, known in Japan as Kairyu, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Such a Divine pokemon with strong stats and on the other hand its hidden talent makes it an absolutely terrific dragon-type pokemon!

He is so cute I just want him to be a real Pokemon

My favorite pokemon of all time!

Dragonite: Both cute, and extremely strong. Definitely one of my favourite Pokemon. Dragon and flying type make an extremely strong combination.

Extremely strong? More like can't outspeed or one-shot a pikachu. - Rayquasar

4 Salamence Salamence Salamence, known in Japan as Bohmander, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Love this dog

Even though Salamence is the most badass looking dragon type pokemon, we all can agree that it can get out speeded by garchomp (100 versus 102 base) and die from one outrage because it has mediocre defenses. stat wise he is pretty op but I would have liked game freak to make him outspeed chomp because he has lesser defenses. even after garchomp beating him in speed, this guy is as his name suggests truly menacing in competitive battle, be it Draco meteor with a special set or a classic outrage physical set, this guy can destroy teams if used wisely.

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

Buddy, just because a pokemon is flying type doesn't mean it's fast. Besides, mega rayquaza has better everything than mega salamence. - dankchu

Salamance is an OP dragon type that naturaly learns fly.

5 Hydreigon Hydreigon Hydreigon, known in Japan as Sazandora, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

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.

Modest+Draco Meteor+Choice Specs

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

6 Dialga Dialga Dialga, known in Japan as the same name, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Dialga takes one look at Dragon type weakness and laughs then proceeds to wreck shop like a Lord of Time should. enough said.

WHY #6!

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.

This pokemom is a trash can that people put their banana. hey one more things he look like a chicken bone,but and fish bone it a looser that need people to help see in the pokemon moves it need ash to help him drink medican

7 Giratina Giratina Giratina is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. Created by Ken Sugimori, Giratina first appeared in the video games Pokémon Diamond and Pearl, but gained prominence in the sister game, Pokémon Platinum, which it was made the mascot of.

Giratina is awesome!
I especially like it's dimension story.

The devil pokemon is SO awesome!

Will steal your soul if you upset him

The guy who said giratina was dark dragon is such an idiot its ghost dragon. Know your typings, please.

Also I like his alternate forme better than origin forme.

8 Haxorus

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

Haxorus is my favorite dragon type pokemon! It is so boss!


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.

9 Flygon Flygon

Like I told ya, tots cool

Just honestly the most amazing pokemon ever also its bug/dragon what else do I have to say

Should at least be in top 5

Not only a cool typing, but it also has such a badass look. I partially like this most because I had a Flygon card and it was my best.

10 Mega Charizard X Mega Charizard X

Too the guy who says "You don't even need to Mega Evolve him, just give him Flamethrower," it would become a flying fire, no longer dragon - fwed

It's my favorite pokemon ever

Why is Mega Charzard X number ten! He looks so awesome! He should be on number 4 or higher than this! Come on boys vote!

The very best! - SynisterX

The Contenders

11 Kyurem Kyurem Kyurem, known in Japan as the same name, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

I like charizard to he my favorite

Best because it says my name if you take off the k

My favourite legendary and dragon - TENTACRUEL

I agree that Kyurem is the best because in the movie Kyurem vs the swords of justice it says that it is the best dragon pokemon

12 Reshiram Reshiram Reshiram, known in Japan as the same name, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Reshiram use Fusion Flare. Boom!


Reshiram is most beautiful dragon type Pokemon. She's one of best dragon type pokemon

My favorite legendary and second favorite pokemon of all time. Reshiram looks so majestic! His (Despite looking feminem, Reshiram is said to be the twin borther of Zekrom, meaning it's male) white fur just makes him appeal to my senses a ton.

13 Palkia Palkia Palkia, known in Japan as the same name, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

I love palkia she's beautiful

Palkia is my first legendary Pokemon and is beast. It has the best type combo on this list. Dragonite is way overrated. One ice type move and he's gone. Palkia though? Takes at least 2 supereffective hits from a scarfed garchomp.

He's just plain awesome.

Palkia can defeat rayquaza and it can defend all rayquaza attacks

14 Goodra Goodra Goodra is a fictional creature in the Pokemon franchise. Introduced in the 6th gen, Goodra is a Dragon type Pokemon. It is the evolved form of Sliggoo and the final evolved form of Goomy. Classified as the Dragon Pokemon, Goodra is a very slimy, yet affectionate Pokemon, and likes to hug its trainers, more.

He's definitely the cutest Dragon type

I don't really use Dragon types, but Goodra is fantastic and deserves the love it gets.

Goodra equals god. The move pool of this thing is amazing, plus the fact that it likes to hug.

Goodra is so cute, strong and loving it pokedex entry says it loves to give hugs to it's friends

15 Latios Latios Latios, known in Japan as the same name, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Littown baby

Better than latias in my opinion - DWisawesomethe3rd

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.

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

V 16 Comments
16 Latias Latias Latias, known in Japan as the same name, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

It's the best why don't you vote for it?

Latias...The cutest dragon-type legendary


Yeah. The same as Latios. They should stay together. (They're brother and sister. They should stay together.)

17 Kingdra Kingdra

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

I love this guy. I couldn't beat Clair in Soul Silver until I got my own Kingdra. Its Sniper ability in later generations is quite useful too, considering that it learns Focus Energy pretty early on.

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

18 Tyrantrum Tyrantrum Tyrantrum, known in Japan as Gachigoras, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

A badass T-rex that is a Rock/Dragon type! What is there not to like!?

I think tyrantrum is amazing it looks so cool also it is my favorite pokemon

It was considered invincible in the ancient world, easily the most powerful

Tyrantrum is one of the strongest in my opinion because of the fact that he can learn the fang moves and his ability augments them not to mention his attack is through the roof

V 16 Comments
19 Zygarde Zygarde Zygarde, known in Japan as the same name, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

It only has like,3 3 weaknessess

Strong pokemon should be ranked higher

I have him in my team in pokemon moon he's super strong and I leveled him up a lot and I think he's awesome

Zygarde needs more love! I love him for his mysteriousness.

20 Noivern Noivern Noivern, known in Japan as Onvern, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Awesome, just so good looking.

Should've been the Gen 6 pseudo instead of goodra

The reasons why Noivern should be higher on the list.
1.It's one of the fastest Pokémon in the entire franchise.
2.It looks AWESOME.
3.It's special attack is amazing.

Who wants it higher now? Uhhh, me.

Noivern deserves to be among the top Dragon-type Pokemon:
1. He has pretty good Special Attack and even better speed
2. He has a nice range of moves that if used right could make him the ultimate killing machine
3. He looks AMAZING

Definitely my favorite Dragon-type.

21 Mega Sceptile

I worship it every day. OP!

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!

This is my starter In brick bronze (not an actual pokemon game it is on ROBLOX) and I've beaten a level 70 dragonite and back then sceptile was only level 65

22 Arceus (Dragon Type) Arceus (Dragon Type) Arceus is a legendary Pokémon from the Pókemon series. He first appeared in the 18th Pokémon movie alongside other Legendary Pokémon.

he is - mohammed10njr7

Personally, I don't think an Arceus with a dragon plate counts as a legit dragon type.

It’s the god of Pokemon

Arceus is the god of Pokemon and in the 11th movie he is able to deflect attacks with his plates

23 Zekrom Zekrom Zekrom, known in Japan as the same name, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.


Boys he is a Uniba region GOD. He is the Zeus of Pokemon, he practically controls you and the skies.

150 base attack!

Bolt strike...

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.

V 24 Comments
24 Dragalge Dragalge

Honestly, I think Dragalge is way underrated. He has a combination of two of the coolest types in the game. Poison and Dragon. What can be cooler than that? Not to mention he makes a great special wall and sweeper.

One of the coolest looking pokemon - Mask_and_Mirror

This bad boy has a very nice special defense but the problem is his speed is not very useful if neglecting that he is a dragon having powers to beat a fairy type

I really Like this one, His type, Poison and Dragon can easily beat a Fairy, even he is slow he is a good sweeper, there are so many debates between Dragalge and Noivern and I can't decide which one to put on my team so I picked them both

25 Druddigon Druddigon

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

Why is he so low he is actually a dragon type he's bellow glaceon and torterra!?!? He's not that bad. Use him as stall. Rough skin and rocky helmet and then use him as cannon fodder.

Druddigon is one of my favorite Dragon types. It has a great design and it is very fun to use. Normally I wouldn't say something like this, but I don't get why it is below pokémon like Torterra that aren't dragging type?

His ability sheer force and access to sucker punch to get rid of his horrible speed makes him a beast

26 Dragonair Dragonair

Dragonair looks much better than its evolution, Dragonite. It may not have its flying type, but there are so many other dragon/flying types that it doesn't really matter! Dragonair for the win!

Dragonair is the best he or she will not be paralyzed or burn or sleep or ice or poison dragonair

The most elegant and sexy dragon type ever beats all dragon types forever

It's so much better than dragonite

Yay torterra

It's Grass Dragon.

Torterra is amazing but not dragon

This isn't a dragon

28 Gyarados Gyarados Gyarados is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. It evolves from one of the weakest Pokemon, Magikarp. But Gyarados has a high attack power (as of gen VII, mega Gyarados is ranking #19 for highest attack stat & would rank #10 if legendary Pokemon aren't included), and more.

Gyarados isn't even a dragon type Pokemon, regardless of whether or not he looks like one or is based off of a dragon legend. Of course, I don't think dragon Arceus should count either, so take that how you will.

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'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

I want a gyarados to mega evolve into a water-dragon mix instead of water dark.

Created by Ken Sugimori, Charizard first appeared in the video games Pokémon Red and Blue and subsequent sequels. They have later appeared in various merchandise, spinoff titles and animated more.

This is fire/flying not fire/dragon

Boss it is not a dragon type it is a fire/flight types

Excuse me mega charizard fire/dragon bro

Why is charizard even on this list

30 Goomy Goomy Goomy is a fictional character introduced in the Pokemon Franchise. Introduced in Gen 6, Goomy is classified as the Soft Tissue Pokemon. Goomy is considered to be the weakest of all dragon type Pokemon living in damp and shady places so its body dries out. Once it body dries out, Goomy will be unable more.

Fat ugly dumb



It has so much power he known for 1 hit killing Mewtwo his attacks are some of the strongest in all Pokemon

32 Noibat

It's not strong but it's cute

33 Kakuna Kakuna

Just stop putting things like this!

The best dragon type. What it lacks in defense, it more than makes up for in its base stats being maximum for all others. This is the fully evolved version of Arceus, so it's hard to catch, but when you do, it's worth it.

! not a dragon u idiots! Only pud dragon types! Hobos! - socoolmudkip

Kakuna is not a dragon type

34 Mega 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?

He's electric type idiots!

When he mega evolves he is electric dragon.

Mega Sceptile wrecks this guy.

35 Mega Altaria Mega Altaria

Uh dude mega altaria doesn't resist fairy so

Most dragon pokemon are weak against dragon attacks but since it is a fairy/dragon type it is resistant against dragon and fairy attacks

I used it and it never fails me. It functions as a good tank and an ok attacker. I love this pokemon and it's design. - heyyolo

Honestly this pokemon isn't that good and looks very retarted I dunno how it got here

39 Axew Axew

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

Cuteness is my main concern in Pokemon teams, and in ORAS where having a dragon type Pokemon is super important, Axew and Dratini are in my top two

Worst loved

The anime portrays Iris's Axew as a clueless, clumsy, and overall immature Pokemon who uses Dragon Sneeze instead of Dragon Rage. But that is not to say that Axews are bad, because they are actually quite useful.

In Black, you cannot get Ice Beam until after you beat N and Ghetsis. So, my Samurott was reduced to using Blizzard against Drayden's dragons, and it missed Blizzard twice against Druddigon, getting knocked out by Night Slash and Dragon Tail. So, I was forced to use my Fraxure. And boy my Fraxure did not disappoint me, finally taking out that damn Druddigon and his Haxorus as well. And it gets even better as a Haxorus. It has Mold Breaker, and if you teach him Earthquake, Eelektrosses will fall.

So go and get yourself an Axew. He's not going to disappoint you.

40 Mega Rayquaza Mega Rayquaza

Super Strong Pokemon. Mega Rayquaza is the best.

Why is it so low on the list

Strongest legendary ever

Mega Rayquaza is the BEST! I have a question. Why is Rayquaza 1st and Megs Rayquaza 47th?

41 Ditto Ditto Ditto, known in Japan as Metamon, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Ditto can transform into anything for crying out loud!

Ditto is stupid whenever I use him he always dies.

Ditto can transform into anything therefor, he is every type. Dragon, ice, grass, bird, if you can name it, he is that. So your point is invalid.

I guess it's a dragon type if it's fighting a dragon type, but it is NOT a dragon if it's fighting a normal or an electric or whatever.

The coolest dragon type out there, because this thing is definitely a dragon.

Best dragon type, no more ice weakness! I recommend spending all your whole life to find this Pokemon only because it's the best dragon type yet!

No dragon even comes close to Regice. Its full ice type makes it able to kill dragons.

I love this dragon because its awesome having a dragon that is dragon type. Definitely a dragon. OP dragon
