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.

Great Stats and an overall OP Pokemon. So strong that it was only allowed to participate in Uber tier where anything goes. Amazing stats with Mega having the highest base stat total equal to mega mewtwo's. Great movepool with it's ability negates super-effective against flying type. Probably the strongest Pokemon ever.

Super badass Mega is badass too enough SAID

This is like the strongest pokemon ever it deserves more than it gest

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

Garchomp is the best because he can learn moves to counter his weakness like ice for example just teach it fire fang or flamethrower a good physical and special attack

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

He was so op he was moved too ubers and was still broken there

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

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

Looks cute and funny plus really strong!

Dragonite is my favorite pokemon and he is so powerful

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

Foolish dragon

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

Best dragon type ever

This pokemon is so op especially its mega evolution my friend sweeper my whole team with just mega salamance

Forget Outrage, mega Salamence is way better with Thrash.

Kills anything with a STAB Outrage and mega ability is broken

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

One of the best choice scarf users out there. Fast powerful STAB Draco meteor and switch out. Rinse and repeat.

Stats are amazing and balanced! Awesome design and a power full combination!

An absolute menace when he first came out. My childhood favorite.

Cool design, and can be a good sweeper in competitive

6 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.

I likes using GIRATINA during battles and during training and GIRATINA is very close to invincible if trained enough and had attack set like hyper beam, dragon claw, shadow force and even a fourth move possibly earthquake or earth power or even aura sphere. When I had used GIRATINA I managed to defeat all members of the sinnoh elite four and defeated champion cynthia without difficulty even if I had to train up GIRATINA to at least level 80 in order for it to be possible.

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

The devil pokemon is SO awesome!


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

Dialga should be at the top behind Rayquaza

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

Dialga is a huge dragon it has battle against latios latias raquayza and more in movies

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.

8 Haxorus

Haxorus should be higher up on the list

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

How To Get A Haxorus Sweep
1: Swords Dance
4: Profit

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

I would vote for Mega Charizard X but I'm voting for Flygon!

Flygon is cool and majestic but it should be ground bug or bug dragon

Best ever it should have a mega like garchomp it kinda unfair but I like flygon it's the first ever pokemon who is a dragon and ground type

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. "

10 Mega Charizard X Mega Charizard X

I kept asking IS CHARIZARD A DRAGON TYPE?! I reply I Nope. It's fire... and flying. I me I That sucks. I sees mega Charizard X I I me I IS THAT A DRAGON TYPE?! I reply I yes. I sees Dragonite I IS THAT A DRAGON TYPE?! I reply I SHUT UP!

He's a mega evolution so he's really powerful and looks awesome

He looks cooler than ever

He s the coolest there will ever be


The Newcomers

? Vibrava

The Contenders

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

This my 1st favorite dragon pokemon but my 2nd favorite of all pokemon - ArcticWolf

Best Pokemon ever seen. Not super effective against primary weakness of dragon type that is is fairy and can easily defeat ice type in one hit of his blue flare. It is op fire type Pokemon with highest best 680. It should be in top 10.

Reshiram use Fusion Flare. Boom!


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

In the movie ( kyrurem and the sword of justice) they say this is the strongest dragon Pokemon

Literally a combiner force transformer. His strength and design is far superior to any other dragon type and maybe even all the other Pokémon... with his bois Reshiram and Zekrom he could fight a whole army of Russian panzer tanks with vodka drinking soldiers who fight bears with their bear hands.

Kyurem deserves to be #2! Kyurem,In any form or none won many battles and victories for me! My Kyurem eats Rayquaza,2 Greninja,Zekrom and Reshiram for breakfast! - DemonSpiritGhostKitten

I like charizard to he my favorite

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

In my opinion this is the best out of the dragon trio

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.

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.

Goo goo goodra it says goo

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.

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

Long live latios

First dragon type and my child in omega ruby

Littown baby

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.

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?

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

A nice mixture of Dragon and Psychic its one of the faster legendaries and this makes it hard to hit with most attacks.

Latias...The cutest dragon-type legendary

17 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!?

He is a very badass Pokémon. He reminds me of Tyranitar. The King. He should be a notch higher.

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

18 Kingdra Kingdra


Good types agua dragon

Once a good dragon type Always a good dragon type. Because It’s my first favorite dragon type Pokemon

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

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

It is amazing


Awesome, just so good looking.

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.

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



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

Um, this Pokemon can change form. When it needs to be tough it goes big. When it needs to hide, it goes small. This Pokemon is easily stronger than rayquaza at 100%

21 Mega Sceptile

Its grass and dragon stupid

Not dragon type

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.

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 can be any type he should be number one!

Arceus is the best

best ever

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

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

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?

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

24 Altaria Altaria Altaria (known as Tyltalis in Japan) is a dual-type Dragon/Flying type Pokémon introduced in Pokémon Ruby and Pokémon Sapphire. It is labeled as the "Humming Pokémon". It evolves from Swablu upon reaching Level 35, and can mega evolve to have the types Draon/Fairy.

Why is it not in top 10 (1&2 are trash)

I love altaria because it helped me to defeat Wallace

Altaria I My Favorite Pokemon It Should Be In The Top 3 At Least How Are Dragonite And Zekrom Better Than Altaria

Altaria is my most favorite pokemon it's not only because it looks gorgeous but has really powerful attacks

25 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.

Featured Pokémon in the Fandom Wiki - ArcticWolf

Fat ugly dumb



26 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

27 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

28 Mega Rayquaza Mega Rayquaza

I in confusion, Rayquaza 1st, Mega Rayquaza 28th?

Why is mage Rayquaza low than reglre rayquaza

Better than Kakuna.

Super Strong Pokemon. Mega Rayquaza is the best.

29 Dragonair Dragonair

She looks better than Dragonite, in which he looks derpy. Also, try evolite with either Dragon Breath, or Thunder Wave. It's very annoying.

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

30 Ultra Necrozma

Absolutely shreds teams if it gets to switch in safely

Its not ultra necrozma it's the blinding one if u watch the show

2 words. Prismatic Laser.

He can kill arceus he's stronger than arceus

31 Zygarde Complete Form Zygarde Complete Form Zygarde, known in Japan as the same name, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Zygarde completed form is better than black Kyurem. Not only is it cool, but it's so over powered!

32 White Kyurem White Kyurem
33 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

34 Torterra

Yup definitely my favorite dragon type Torterra is 100 percent the best dragon I mean what about grass type turtle with an island on it's back doesn't SCREAM dragon?

Best dragon starter

Seems legit

Seems right - Tomiscool420

35 Black Kyurem Black Kyurem

Kyurem black is, hands down, one of the Best dragon types out there! It doesn't deserve first, but at least fifth

Black Kyurem should be higher, it is OP like look at those wings! its darkness diving into ice I honestly think this should at least be higher than 9 dragons (sorry for typos lol)

Why no opinions?

36 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.

37 Noibat

It's not strong but it's cute

38 Kakuna Kakuna

What a great DRAGON type Pokemon!

This is not a dragon type, next time please research before putting a pokemon on this. - mushroll2241

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.

39 Sliggoo Sliggoo

So cool

It should be the cutest! Aww! Cuter than ugly the Omanite

40 Glaceon Glaceon

Ice Type, and No Dragon Type. - ArcticWolf

Sorry to say but there isn't a dragon evolution for Eevee yet, and Glaceon is not a dragon type. - mushroll2241

He is a water Pokemon not even in top 60

To the FOOL who added this:
Glaceon is Ice type, not Dragon type.

41 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.

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

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.

Ditto can transform into anything for crying out loud!

43 Alolan Exeggutor Alolan Exeggutor


Is a dark en grass type

Majestic egg!

44 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.

45 Aerodactyl Aerodactyl Aerodactyl, known in Japan as Ptera, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Not a dragon, but it looks like 1, but rock/flying - socoolmudkip

I wish it was a dragon, it's really fantastic.

He needs more love. It's a great Pokemon.

Aerodactyl is awesome! It should number 1.

46 Tyranitar Tyranitar Tyranitar, known in Japan as Bangiras, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

He ain't dragon but a great pokemon

Nope, that’s a Rock/Dark type. - ArcticWolf

Not dragon type but still good

Sorry man it a rock/dark

47 Naganadel

I want to see it

This pokemon is absolutely insane.. There is a reason why it is called ultra beast. This thing was uber after the month it was introduced. Z move set is the most terrifying because it goes well with nasty plot. Not to mention it gains speed through beast boost unable to outspeed this insane charged up monster. The only option that I see is to defeat this pokemon is by pressuring the opponent into corner with choice scarf set or assault vest t-tar. However, both choice scarf and assault vest mons still suffers getting swept once this beast is all charged up from its stats. I recommend to all those competitive player that u defeat this thing as soon as possible with scarf, priority... defense play against this mon is not an option as it will set up its nasty plot.

Extremely strong pokemon with blistering speed that outclasses any other pokemon slap nasty plot, draco meteor, sludge wave and fire blast/flamethrower and watch it sweep along with its overall coverage you could change up and run, dragon pulse, sludge wave, fire blast/flamethrower and U-turn/dark pulse, if you r opponent is the slightest bit unprepared its turns into a straight sweep, and with its speed and special attack this thing out speeds every other dragon type and turns them to paste.

48 Regice Regice Regice is a legendary Pokemon and part of the Regi trio. According to scientific research its body is made entirely of Antarctic ice during an ice age. It is said to always control frigid air of minus 328 degrees F. more.

No way! That’s an Ice Type, no Dragon Type - ArcticWolf

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.

49 Gible Gible

If you like sharks and rocks gible looks like a shark

50 Croagunk Croagunk

Isn't croagunk poison and fighting?

It is not a dragon pokemon

Again no dragon

Too OP dragon type
