Lesson 6 - Dragon & Flying Pokémon
Dragon Pokémon are among the most elusive and powerful in the game. With nine legendary Pokémon and four that have legendary like stats, they are very powerful and also difficult to train. They require more EXP points per level and evolve later on than other types so they are in their weaker forms for longer. Dragon Pokémon are super-effective against other Dragon types and are not very effective against Steel Pokémon. Fire, Water, Electric, and Grass Pokémon are all not very effective against Dragon types, while Ice and Dragon are super-effective against them. With 32 Pokémon in their type they are one of the smaller types.
Deino - zweilous - hydreigon
Deino are blind and bite constantly, making them Pokémon to be very cautious of when approaching. They will also ram into everything and have many bruises because of it. Zweilous has two heads that really dislike each other, and as a result they often try to have eating competitions. They are carnivorous and generally eat to much from these competitions. Hydreigon are violent Pokémon that will attack anything that moves without pause.
bagon - shelgon - salamence
Bagon have one wish to soar in the skies and are often found jumping off of cliffs attempting to learn how to do so. When they evolve to Shelgon they grow an immense shell around them and undergo a change in cells. The shell falls off as it evolves into Salamence and it has gone under enough transformation that it now has wings and can fly. Salamence is very arrogant over this fact and will often spout intense flames into the air after it wins battles.
Some of the most notable Dragon-type trainers are:
Most Flying type Pokémon are based on birds or insects, with a few being based on dragons or other mythological creatures. All Flying Pokémon have Flying as a secondary type except for legendary Pokémon Tornadus. The only type that hasn't been paired with Flying is Fighting. Flying moves are super-effective against Grass, Fighting, and Bug and are not very effective against Electric, Rock, and Steel. Ground Pokémon have no effect on Flying Pokémon and Grass, Fighting, and Bug have very little effect on them. Electric, Ice, and Rock are all super-effective against Flying Pokémon. The 87 Pokémon that have a type of Flying are shown below.
