Dragon-type Pokémon can be found in droves among legendaries in Pokémon Legends: Arceus, but when it comes to non-legendaries, Dragon-type Pokémon are frighteningly scarce. With only two options for non-legendary Dragon-type Pokémon, the newly introduced Hisuian Goodra is the best option.

Hisuian Goodra

Hisuian Goodra has a fantastic dual-typing of Dragon and Steel, which give it an immunity to Poison-type attacks, as well as a long list of other resistances. Hisuian Goodra doesn’t really have any bad stats, with the worst one being its speed, and even that is greatly compensated by everything else that Goodra has to offer. Players really can’t go wrong with a Hisuian Goodra on a team.

Other strong Dragon Type Pokémon in Pokémon Legends: Arceus

With only two options, that leaves Garchomp as the remaining non-legendary Dragon-type. Garchomp is last, by certainly not least. It is among the most powerful Pokémon in the whole series.


Garchomp is a fantastic Pokémon and is only listed below Hisuian Goodra due to its 4x weakness to Ice-type moves. Garchomp has an incredible attack stat, and the rest aren’t too bad either.

  • Type: Dragon and Ground
  • Stat Total: 600
    • HP: 108
    • Attack: 130
    • Special Attack: 80
    • Defense: 95
