Rayquaza

Rayquaza was last available (with its shiny!) August 2019. It is a Legendary Pokemon only available in limited time events. Legendary Pokemon have 20k buddy walking distance and are generally a good place to use Rare Candies. Powering them up is also a challenge just because the candy is often limited to Raiding for them. Rayquaza is a phenomenal choice though, as it is currently the highest raw DPS Dragon-Type attacker, and among the best Flying-type attackers as well! its got crazy neutral DPS making it often a great choice even when its not hitting super effectively!
With Level 35 Rayquaza you need 3 players.

  • Best Estimator VS: Fire Spin/Dragon Claw
  • Best Ranking VS: Air Slash/Fire Blast

It is a cut below Rayquaza in raw DPS usually, but its interesting Dragon/Water Typing leads to it often performing very well depending on the moveset. its stats can make better use of it than Kingra. Candy will be pretty rough though as its only been released once so far.
With Level 35 Palkia you need 3 players.

Salamence Community Day was April 2019, which is when it received Outrage. its not really the best at any of the things it can do, but its still a top tier Dragon with powerful off-type movesets as well. You can find Bagon in 10k eggs, but they do not nest.

Garchomp

Best Moveset:Dragon Tail / Outrage

Alternative Fast Moves: MUD_SHOT_FAST
Alternative Charge Moves: EARTHQUAKE

  • βš”οΈ Raw Damage: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

  • πŸ“‰ Consistency: β­β­β­β­β˜†
  • 🌐 Accessibility: β­β˜†β˜†β˜†β˜†

Garchomp while a great Dragon AND Ground-Type (and one with a resistance to Rock and triple resistance to Electric) is very difficult to acquire for now. No nests, no events, very rare, very new. Gible do hatch in 10k Eggs, but are exceedingly rare in the wild.
With Level 35 Garchomp you need 3 players.

  • Best Estimator VS: Fire Spin/Dragon Claw
  • Best Ranking VS: Fire Spin/Fire Blast
  • Type Interactions:
    • 1Γ— Resists: Fire

Rampardos

  • πŸ“‰ Consistency: β­β­β­β­β˜†
  • 🌐 Accessibility: β­β˜†β˜†β˜†β˜†

Rampardos is very difficult to acquire being fairly new and only having been featured briefly in one quest as Cranidos. its the highest DPS Rock Type.
With Level 35 Rampardos you need 3 players.

  • Best Estimator VS: Fire Spin/Fire Blast
  • Best Ranking VS: Fire Spin/Dragon Claw

Dialga

Best Moveset:Dragon Breath / Draco Meteor

  • βš”οΈ Raw Damage: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

  • πŸ“‰ Consistency: β­β­β­β­β˜†
  • 🌐 Accessibility: β­β­β­β˜†β˜†

Dialga’s Steel typing gives it nice resistances usually so it comes up a lot as a hefty Steel or Dragon-Type. its a Dragon that isn’t even weak to Dragons, meaning it is helpful against most Dragon Raid Bosses using Dragon-Type attacks. its legendary though, so expensive to trade for and acquire candy for. It is an excellent attacker in recent Team Rocket invasions so powering one up is not the worst idea in the world. In practice it often ends up the highest bulky Dragon-Type attacker over Rayquaza.
With Level 35 Dialga you need 3 players.

  • Best Estimator VS: Fire Spin/Fire Blast

Dratini can be acquired from the “Jump Start” Special Research part 1 (the whole Questline grants Dratini Candy and essentially hands you a Dragonite if you complete all the steps), as well as available as a Shadow Pokemon. The “Catch a Dragon-type Pokemon” quest rewards one. Dratini was also available during community day in February 2018. You can likely find a friend to trade you a Dratini, if not a Dragonite if you ask nicely!
With Level 35 Dragonite you need 3 players.

  • πŸ“‰ Consistency: β­β­β­β­β˜†
  • 🌐 Accessibility: β­β­β˜†β˜†β˜†

Accessibility will be a bit tough if you are only starting now as Larvitars do not nest and are rare. They are also in 10k eggs. Tier 4 Tyranitar Raids were a staple for quite a while, however. Larvitar can be found in ‘Make 3 Excellent Throws in a Row’ Quests. The family was last in raid bosses during Water Festival in Sept 2019. Larvitar community day (the only time you could get Smack Down) was June 2018. It isn’t the highest raw DPS Dark-Type anymore, but it has a ton of bulk on top of near optimal DPS. Weavile and Honchkrow trade with it depending on the matchup.
