( Dragon type ドラゴンタイプ Doragon taipu in Japanese) is one of the eighteen Pokémon elemental types.
The Dragon type is an ancestral type, as many of the
Legendary Dragon-type Pokémon are considered as deities. Other Dragon-type Pokémon are hard to catch and hard to train. They also evolve late, and are relatively rare. An interesting fact is how many Dragon-type Pokémon surpass common stats.

Lance (last member of the Kanto Elite Four and then Johto champion), Clair ( Blackthorn City Gym Leader), Drake (last member of the Hoenn Elite Four), Iris (Gym Leader of Opelucid City and then Unova champion), Drayden ( Opelucid City Gym Leader) and Drasna (member of the Kalos Elite Four).
