19 Best Dragon Type Pokémon From All Generations (2022)

Dragon type Pokémon are without a doubt one of the strongest types of Pokémon out there, and they were considered the strongest until the fairy-type was introduced. Even still, most of the dragon-types are stronger than your average Pokémon.

So, what makes this type of Pokémon so strong? Well, for starters, they generally have the highest average HP and base stat total of all types, and they even have the highest average Special Attack of all types.

And even if we don’t look at their battle stats and their powerful abilities, which are impressive nonetheless, dragon Pokémon have a pretty amazing design. Almost all of them look stunning, they are regal and graceful and they carry themselves with pride that comes with knowing their own strength.

What’s testament of their strength is that most of the dragon-type Pokémon are either pseudo-legendary or legendary, and they are mostly resistant to most other types of Pokémon. Dragon-types are generally weak to their own type and to fairy-type, but they can hold their own using their impressive power set if they ever go to battle against the opponents they are weak against.

So, in this article, we are going to have a look at some of the most powerful dragon Pokémon of all time and find out what makes them better than the rest!
