Characteristics

Defense

Many Dragon Pokémon are pseudo-legendary or Legendary Pokémon. Partly because of this, Dragon Pokémon have the highest average HP and base stat total of all types.

Offense

In addition to HP, Dragon-type Pokémon have the highest average Special Attack of all types of Pokémon and fully-evolved Pokémon. Dragon is tied with Ghost for the type with the least resistance.

The Dragon type can only deal super-effective damage to itself.

When Misty Terrain is in the effect, the power of Dragon-type moves is decreased by 50% if the target is on the ground.
