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.

🌐 Accessibility: ⭐⭐⭐⭐
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.

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. With Level 35 Salamence you need 3 players.

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.

#9 Dialga
Dragon Breath
Draco Meteor
⚔️ Raw Damage: ⭐⭐⭐⭐
🛡️ Survival/Bulk: ⭐⭐⭐
📉 Consistency: ⭐⭐⭐
🌐 Accessibility: ⭐⭐⭐
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.

Rhyhorn is very common and boosted in the common Sunny, but Rhyperior is a Sinnoh Stone evolution Pokemon. Rhydon is a pretty good Ground-Type as well, so if you get a good moveset on it and don’t have the candy or stone to evolve, it’s not that bad. It’s also great as a Rock-Type attacker with different moves. Rhyhorn currently can be found in nests. With Level 35 Rhyperior you need 3 players.

Alolan Exeggutor was very common upon its initial release but since then has been more tough to get. Unlike many Alolan Pokemon, he is available in the wild and not Alolan eggs . It is pretty uncommon a spawn however. In Go it does not evolve from Exeggcute, and can only be found evolved. They were at least nice enough to hardcode it to give 5 candies when caught (like other evolution Pokemon). Alolan Exeggutor has been found both as a Tier 2 and Tier 4 Raid Boss in the past. With Level 35 Alolan Exeggutor you need 3 players.
