Drampa (ジーロン Jiiron) is a / normal -type Pokémon introduced in Dragon Generation VII. It is exclusive to Pokémon Moon.
Drampa like to communicate with humans and other kinds of Pokemon. They treat children gently, and frequently gather at playgrounds and schools.
Although they are mostly kind Pokemon, when they know children they befriended are facing danger, they will become extremely angry. At that time their
Dragon Breath can even reach the power that can blow away a building!
It has a compassionate personality, but if it is angered, it completely destroys its surroundings with its intense breath.
This Pokémon is friendly to people and loves children most of all. It comes from deep in the mountains to play with children it likes in town.
If a child it has made friends with is bullied, Drampa will find the bully's house and burn it to the ground.
It appears in towns and plays with the children. Drampa will protect kids when they're in danger, so their moms don't have to worry.
Drampa is the first Dragon Type Pokémon to have a Normal Type in it.
Drampa is apparently based on an Eastern dragon from various Asian cultures. It may also be based on elders, such as its white beard and hair.
Drampa might be a combination of
dragon and grandpa.
