Top Ten Non-legendary Dragon Pokemon

The Top Ten

1 Garchomp Garchomp

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 my all time favorite pokemon. Before Garchomp came along into the Pokemon franchise, I really didn't have a favorite pokemon. I fell in love with Garchomp at first sight. Garchomp will always be my favorite pokemon. If the world of pokemon was real I would do anything to get my own Garchomp.

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

Garchomp's diverse movepool, awesome design and terrifying attack stats raise him to be my third favourite Pokemon of all time ( the first two are both speedy glass cannons). Garchomp is so bulky, tanky and powerful- I named my Garchomp after my best friend. P.S he has a mega evolution! What's not to love? I have won 13 Battle Royale matches solely using him! I had a Haxorus and Goodra in my team- but I didn't use them! ( Haxorus and Goodra are still great Pokemon though)

2 Dragonite Dragonite Dragonite is a character from the Pokémon franchise by Nintendo. It is a dragon and flying type Pokémon created in the first generation of Pokémon. It is a Pseudo Legendary Pokémon.

Dragonite is an everything type, so you don't have to worry about type advantage. It would be a perfect opponent against all legendary pokemon. You can make it learn all attacks and it would probably like, half of all legendary pokemon. I have to admit it is the most OP pokemon. You can have it use hyper beam, dragon rage, moonburst, and earthquake and will never give up. When you have a dragonite, you owe the world. There are countless strategies to beat even mewtwo! So I recommend it the best pokemon that isn't legendary. Anyway, that includes why dragonite is the best. Why don't they have a dragonite festival every month?

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!

This guy has a little something to take out anything. Dragon? No worry. Water? Please. Fire? Don't even. Electric? It's suicide. Fairy? Ok, you might want to switch him out but with so little useful fairy types (in my opinion) that one: it would be rare and two: anything else could take it out. The only thing I didn't like about it at first was it over dose on cuteness. And those arms? How dare it call itself a dragon. But once it starts to fight... It becomes unstoppable.

I have this on Pokémon Go and it is pretty powerful,it can be fast and powerful on the same time

3 Hydreigon Hydreigon Dark/Dragon Pokemon, thought to be similar to Hydra . Drei is german for three, as in the name it relates to the head count of the stage of evolution .

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.

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

Never used before but plan to in pokemon Y. Love his design and type is very unique. 3 heads are better than 1.

Dragonite sucks

4 Salamence Salamence

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!

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.

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.

Salamence Is my strongest pokemon In my team It can kick some dragon type pokemon and the way I love it because the way I team up with my other pokemon with this little pokemon can kill a legendary. And It has mega evolution too. but, In some pokemon game bagon I a bit rare..

5 Haxorus

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 goes from one of the cutest dragon types to an ultimate badass! I had one in my team while playing X and Y and it kicked all kinds of Poke-booty. His attack stat is super powerful, all in all one of the best Pokemon to come out of the 5th gen.

Honestly one of the best non pseudo legendary it looks crazy it will definitely kill your dragonite or tyranitar

He is some dragon type with a high attack stats. He could take down garchomp too.
axew is not that strong but when it evolves twice into haxorus it is like the best dragon type

6 Noivern Noivern

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 ).

Noivern can be overkill if it could learn dragon dance but it is still great good stats too.

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. - MamaLuigi

Best set:
Modest 252 Sp.Attck/252 Speed/4 Defense w/Choice Specs/Life Orb

Draco Meteor

7 Kingdra Kingdra

Kingdra is one of the best dragon-type of all times. With only one weakness, you can make him a killing machine against other Pokemon as well as dragon-types!

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

Hum, why so low? That thing rocks! It has only one weakness!

8 Flygon Flygon

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

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!

Best dragon ever, hopefully we see a mega evolution in the new games. He has dominated wifi battles. Even took out its counterpart garchomp

Flygon should not be here

9 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.

Goodra has to be my favorite dragon type next to Flygon, and NO ONE expected to see a little slime ball that probably should have been poison to be a dragon! That's why I love it so much.

Come on it's slime is giving it a disadvantage

Such an Elegant and Powerful Pokemon

Such a good defense

10 Tyrantrum Tyrantrum Tyrantrum is a fictional creature in the Pokemon Franchise. Introduced in Gen 6, it is a Rock/Dragon type Pokemon, and is the evolve form of the fossil Pokemon, Tyrunt. It is classified as the Despot Pokemon. 100 million years ago, before its extinction, Tyrantrum was an invincible predator with its more.

Why is he twelve his attack and defense are great! I have him on why and at level 45 he's more of a tank than my level 49 blastoise!

Only number ten? I think it should at least be in the top 5! all of his stats are decent to outstanding3

He's T Rex no doubt my favorite plus his defense really isn't all that bad.

He should be 6th because I have a lv. 100 one that sweeps through ice, fairy and dragon types although being weak to them.

The Contenders

11 Altaria Altaria

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

I like the combination of strong and beautiful that Altaria possesses. The fact it can mega-evolve into a hybrid of Dragon and Fairy types is an excellent bonus.

Adorable, awesome, cute, elegant. What else? Incredibly strong. This boss kicks ass and totally deserves a rank 5 or higher.

How is he not above dragonite? my altaria, can destroy the elite 4 and champion without healing!

12 Dragonair Dragonair

I love dragonite but I think he looks more like character from a children's book so dragonair should be higher

The reason this is not high up is because dragonite is on the list. :P - itz_izzy

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:(

13 Druddigon Druddigon

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

This thing is awesome, and with his ability, rough skin, he will surely be the best Pokemon in your party.

Weakest dragon type Pokemon in stats but strong

Defeated iris's dragonite with ease.Must be in top 3.

14 Dragalge Dragalge

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

Yep, His type Poison and dragon are amazing, good for fairy though, he is also my favorite Dragon type

Please vote for him poison is good against fairy at least and has many negative status affects

Probably my favorite Pokemon:
1: His design is downright gorgeous.
2: He is great in competitive play.

16 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.

What?! Gyarados is Water and Flying?! Come on Game Freak, get it right!

Why? Not Dragon, his mega isn't either.

His mega looks like a giant shrimp. I shiny mega looks like a giant lobster. No. Just... No... - ThunderdrumsRule

Errr guys gyarados isn't a dragon but is still very OP
by the way his mega form turns him into a friken 20 ft shrimp

17 Goomy Goomy

He's fabulous. Your argument is invalid because of his adorable face.

Why isn't Goomy here? He's got a Clicker game named after him and evolves int one of the best Pseudo-Legendaries

18 Zekrom Zekrom

19 Mega Charizard X

Mega charizard x should be 1 due to its high speed and special attack

He is a mega, Charizard is the best Pokemon ever and he is black with blue flames, Reds mega charizard even beats Mewtwo himself.
Its just to badass!

20 Axew Axew

You don't care about Axew well AXE YOU
