With the removal of many National Dex Pokemon, Dragon types go back to being fairly rare. Still there are lots of good ones worth using in Pokemon Sword and Shield. In this guide we’re going to go over our picks for the best Dragon Pokemon in Pokemon Sword and Shield. Let’s dive right in shall we?
7: Goodra – Best Dragon Pokemon in Sword and Shield
Goodra is one of the weirdest Dragon Pokemon of all time. It’s not particularly intimidating like many of the final Dragon evolutions, but that doesn’t mean that it can’t pose a problem for opposing trainers.
It’s one of the tankier Dragons in the game, with okay Defense and HP stats but massive 150 Special Defense. It’s no slouch offensively either with 100 Attack and Special Attack, making it a dual attacking threat.
In addition, Goodra has access to some really useful abilities. Hydration cures all status effects in the rain, Sap Sipper allows Goodra to Absorb Grass attacks, and Gooey will lower the speed of any Pokemon that makes physical contact.
