Top 10 Best Dragon Type Pokemon

The Top Ten
1 Rayquaza Rayquaza (pronounced "ray-quay-zah") is a Dragon/Flying type Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. It serves as the mascot in the game Pokémon Emerald. Rayquaza can mega evolve into Mega Rayquaza provided that it does not have a Z-Crystal and it knows the move... read more

Rayquaza truly is the king of the dragon types. Its name literally means "Emperor of Japan." With a base stat total of 680 and Attack and Special Attack stats through the roof, almost nothing stands in its way. Now, it possesses a new Mega Evolution. One that does not require a Mega Stone, giving it the opportunity to have held items. Not only does it have Mega Evolution, but it also has the new special move, Dragon Ascent. Sure, this move lowers the user's Defense and Special Defense, but it is capable of demolishing almost any target with a power of 120 and an already alarming Attack stat. This Pokémon really is number 1.

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

Personally, I think this is the best dragon type Pokemon there is. I beat Rayquaza accidentally in Pokemon Alpha Sapphire by using my Dragon Claw on it. Good thing I saved it. My Dragonite had Dragon Claw, Dragon Dance, Extreme Speed, and Power-Up Punch. I didn't really know what to put for the last one, so I just put Power-Up Punch.

My Dragonite was 10 levels below the Rayquaza, and I still one-shot it. Dragonite should be number one!

Dragonite can use Dragon Claw, Fire Punch, Hurricane, Thunder Punch, Thunder Wave, Hyper Beam, Dragon Rage, Twister, or Steel Wing! Do you get my point? Many of these moves are really decent. Its base stats are great.

I think its design was also pulled off very well by combining cute puppies with fearsome dragons. This is also one of the most powerful non-legendary Pokemon and probably the best non-legendary in the Kanto region.

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

With a substantial 130 attack and 102 speed, this land shark makes for an excellent sweeper with moves like Earthquake, Outrage, and Stone Edge. However, Garchomp should never be pigeonholed as a glass cannon. With a hefty 108 HP, as well as 95 defense and 85 special defense, Garchomp has the ability to take hits. And with the ability Rough Skin and the move Stealth Rock, this pseudo-legendary can also act as a tank. Overall, Garchomp outclasses other non-legendary dragon types, including Dragonite, Salamence, Hydreigon, Goodra, and Kommo-o, with its intimidating design.

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

Salamence is my special sweeper, and it usually wipes out 2 or 3 Pokémon before it goes down. Teach it Earthquake to beat up the Electric and Rock type Pokémon that stand in your way, and Flamethrower for a little surprise. Plus, Dragon Claw is a STAB move for Salamence, which makes it basically unstoppable. Dragon Claw is very useful and would be Salamence's main killer move. Flamethrower can also be used against Fairy types. Finally, if you teach Salamence Brick Break, it can prove useful against Ice types too. So, with the right moveset, Salamence can become an invincible beast.

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

It's a flying hydra. The only thing I don't like about this Pokemon is that I wish the snouts didn't look so weird. Apart from that, it's honestly one of the coolest dragon types out there.

Guys, come on. Why would you put him at 7? You know his base stats (600) are tied with Dragonite, Garchomp, and Salamence, who are way further up this list. He is fast and hits hard, while Dragonite, who is in first place, has balanced stats that are 'perfect'. But we all know that unless you're Arceus, you have to have ups and downs to your stats.

Hydreigon and Garchomp are pretty similar, but Hydreigon is better because Garchomp takes times 4 damage from ice-type moves, which serves as his weak point. Since Salamence is flying, he also suffers from times 4 ice-type weakness. However, Garchomp is better than Salamence because Salamence has more weaknesses, such as electric, rock, and fire. Also, Garchomp is more tanky than Salamence, so yeah.

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

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 one type and resistant to nine.

It has the highest base stat total of all Steel-type Pokemon. Its base stat is 680, which is the same as Mewtwo. 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 its unique typing.

7 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 like using Giratina during battles and during training, and Giratina is very close to invincible if trained enough and has an 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 used Giratina, I managed to defeat all members of the Sinnoh Elite Four and defeated Champion Cynthia without difficulty, even though I had to train up Giratina to at least level 80 for it to be possible.

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 number one on the list. He deserves it.

8 Haxorus

Look at him. An absolute brute, a unique color scheme (or if you don't like that for some reason, take the shiny version instead, because it also looks amazing), an unusual and interesting design, a powerful stat distribution (that killer 147 Attack!) despite having a stat total below the pseudo-legendaries (can you imagine this thing with 600 base stats?). Super edgy. This thing has plenty of personality in its design, which, in my opinion, you can't really say about a lot of other Pokémon (sorry Dragonite, you may be the first, but you're a bit boring to me).

It's also kind of crazy how rare the pure Dragon Type is among fully evolved Dragons. Regardless, you don't get much more beastly than this thing.

9 Flygon Flygon, known in Japan as Flygon, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

This awesome-looking Pokemon ought to be number one! It has massive attack and speed, so it can take out any other of the dragons on this list, especially that fat Dragonite! Dragonite eats too much and ought to stop eating if it wants to move faster, but it will still be no match for Flygon!

It can learn Stone Edge, which is a powerful rock type move to wipe out ice types, and it can learn dragon moves to beat its dragon weakness. Vote Flygon!

Flygon is my favorite dragon type and my favorite ground type. His attack is so high, as well as his speed. Plus, you can get him easily in ORAS. He's not even weak against water because he's part ground. I love this Pokemon. It was so helpful in the games I played. This Pokemon is a beast, so I highly recommend this Pokemon for your team in any game.

10 Mega Charizard X Mega Charizard X is the second Mega Evolution of Charizard, introduced in Pokémon X & Y in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Oh, I completely agree!

With its Tough Claws ability activated and with a good Dragon Dance boost, it would beat the hell out of Dragonite and Salamence combined! With good IVs and EVs in Attack, it would have an attack power of 269 at Lv 50, more with a cleverly established Baton Pass team, and its Defense stat is no laughing matter either. It should be number 1 when it comes to physically attacking dragons, and its only rival may be Mega Salamence at this stage!

Oh, and did I forget to mention that its unique typing makes it neutral to Fairies and Water types alike, with Electric being not effective now!

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

One of the downfalls of dragon types is its 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.

It said in the fifteenth movie that Kyurem is the most powerful dragon type Pokémon 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.

This is easily top 5 for the best dragon Pokémon. It has the ability to absorb the power of Reshiram and Zekrom, has two forms, and has one of the best, if not the best, type combination for a dragon type.

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

They are a very powerful Pokemon, and (to my knowledge) the only Pokemon capable of learning Blue Flare, which is an incredibly powerful fire-type attack. It is also the only dragon type as of Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire whose type is not weak to ice.

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, it could kick Zekrom's butt as Reshiram. He's simply awesome-looking too.

13 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,... read more

I've gone a long way with Goodra and Goodra is definitely my favorite Pokémon, reliable and extremely powerful. Goodra can learn Dragon Pulse, Grass Whip, Ice Beam, Sludge Wave, Aqua Tail, and Thunderbolt.

Goodra is my favorite dragon type Pokémon. Goodra evolves from one of the absolute weakest dragon type Pokémon, Goomy, to one of the strongest Pokémon ever.

Many people underestimate this dragon type. This Pokémon is a wall with heavy special defense stats that can resist super effective moves.

14 Kingdra Kingdra, known in Japan as Kingdra, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Well, first off, its typing is amazing with only one weakness, unlike Salamence and Dragonite with three. Competitively, it can sweep with the ability Swift Swim. Its stats 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?

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.

Only Dragon type from Johto = coolest Dragon Pokémon ever. It has all-around good stats and it is cool because it holds the title of being the only Dragon Pokémon from Johto.

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

How is Torterra above this?

Anyway, it is much faster than most other dragon Pokémon, so that gives it an edge. Also, it looks cool!

Latias helped me dominate the Elite Four, and I think it deserves higher than 26th place. Seriously, this thing is a beast in battles.

A nice mixture of Dragon and Psychic, it's one of the faster legendaries. This makes it hard to hit with most attacks.

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

Palkia is my first legendary Pokémon and is a 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 two super effective hits from a scarfed Garchomp.

Palkia is every bit as good as Dialga, well, except for the fairy weakness. But come on!

Palkia is the only dragon type better than Rayquaza. I see how Rayquaza is 1st, but Palkia should at least be #10.

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

I have an almost level 100 Tyrantrum and it's amazing! It literally crushes every Pokémon in sight and has the best attack stats out of all my other Pokémon!

Tyrantrum has some hard-hitting moves and I won't forget that prehistoric monster.

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

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

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

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

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.

It can revenge kill with a Choice Scarf. Attaching Soul Dew on a Calm Mind set in the Uber metagame will make it extremely potent to other Pokémon. Especially with Draco Meteor and Psyshock.

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

Zygarde's complete form is better than Black Kyurem. Not only is it cool, but it's so overpowered!

Has anyone seen Zygarde 100% form? It is totally beast! This fella should not be at the bottom.

Look, when the new Pokemon game comes out, Zygarde will zoom up in ranking.

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

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.

Why isn't this in the top 10? His move pool is great, and with the combination of speed, he is one heck of a sweeper. Noibat is a pain to level up but it makes up with Noivern's incredible attacks and not too shabby stats.

Noivern is very easily the best dragon type there is! He or she is just overall amazing and the fastest dragon type there is! You have to admit he is amazing!

21 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! Those were my exact words when I first heard about this Pokémon being made. It has a high attack, which is good for dragon Pokémon.

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 isn't he on top?

Zekrom should be in the top five with Reshiram, I suppose. Personally, I don't like choosing between the two. What's really awesome is a combination of both.

22 Altaria Altaria, known in Japan as Tyltalis, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Its Mega Evolution is the only one that, although only weak against Fairy types, is also the only Dragon type that isn't weak against other Dragon types. Unique!

Altaria is an absolute beast, and its mega evolution looks amazing! It should be at least top ten!

Its mega evolution is the only dragon type to not be weak against fairy types.

23 Dragalge Dragalge is a Pokémon species introduced in the Pokémon franchise's sixth generation. It is a Poison/Dragon-type Pokémon known for its unique design resembling a sea dragon or seahorse. Dragalge's dual typing and distinctive appearance set it apart in battles and contribute to its popularity among... read more

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.

24 Druddigon Druddigon, known in Japan as Crimgan, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Why is he so low? He is actually a Dragon type, and he's below Glaceon and Torterra! He's not that bad. Use him as a stall with 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 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 Dragon type.

His ability is amazing! Rough Skin hurts them every time he gets touched. He's strong and fast and wiped out the entire Dragon Gym Leader's Pokémon alone.

25 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... read more

Bad Pokemon, but the new EXP Share system in X and Y makes it easy to level him up without making him fight hard battles. Thus, it'll soon evolve into a Goodra - which has a monster base 150 Special Defense and access to Hydration. Another good use I found for Goodra is in Double battles. I'd just use Energy Ball or something on Goodra, then watch its power go way up.

The weakest dragon type, but #1 in visuals - it's so cute it makes me want to trade Yveltal for it.

How is Goodra higher than Goomy?
