Here are icons of Dragon-Type Pokemon that are available in the game through trade or evolution by Level in Y (Dragalage isn't available in X).

Now, you don't want to get your Dragon too early. Here are all the Dragons that you can catch their pre-evolution before the 5th Gym Badge.

I just cut the list in half. Now, you want to be able to actually use this dragon in the game, right? Dragons normally take a long time to train, some evolving at almost Level 60. Here are Dragons that evolve pre-level 50 into their final forms.

You want your Dragon to be strong, right? Here are dragons with a BST of 535 or higher.

Kingdra
Kingdra can do anything. It has 95 in every stat besides Speed and HP (85 and 75 respectively) and has a wide movepool that encompasses both physical and special moves. Being a water type removes its Ice weakness, leaving its only weaknesses to be Dragon and Fairy, and it covers both quite nicely. It has access to Sniper, and plenty of obscure moves like Octazooka learnt by Seadra. Horsea/Seadra is found at Ambrette Town and Route 8 by fishing and evolves into Kingdra by trading with a Dragon Scale (5% chance Horsea/Seadra holds it in wild).

Item: Mystic Water
Nature: Modest (^SpAtk vAtk)
Ability: Swift Swim
EVs: 252 SpAtk, 252 Spd, 4 HP
Octazooka
Flash Cannon
Double Team/Scald
Dragon Pulse


Garchomp
Everyone knows Garchomp. The unstoppable Dragon-Ground type that got banned in OU with Sand Rush. In X & Y, it just got a lot scarier with a Mega Evolution (upping its amazing BST to 700) with Sand Force and in a sandstorm, this beast is unstoppable. 170 Attack is nothing to mess with at all. Gible is found at Route 13 and evolves to Garchomp at level 48.

Item: Garchompite
Nature: Adamant (^Atk vSpAtk)
Ability: Rough Skin
EVs: 252 Atk, 252 Spd, 4 HP
Earthquake
Dragon Rush
Stone Edge
Poison Jab


Haxorus
This beast rivals Garchomp with 147 Attack, a diverse movepool and great stats overall. Even though Mold Breaker is its only useful ability, it has coverage against all of its weaknesses and Axew, its pre-evolution, is found very early in the game at Connecting Cave. Evolves into Haxorus at Level 48.

Item: Scope Lens
Nature: Adamant (^Atk vSpAtk)
Ability: Mold Breaker
EVs: 252 Atk, 252 Spd, 4 HP
Earthquake
Dragon Claw
Poison Jab/Iron Tail
Dragon Dance

MOVESET COMMENT --- KINGDRA

Warning: People WILL hate you if you run this set.

Summary: Set up a couple Double Teams, lower accuracy with Octazooka, and nobody can hit you. After that, you can proceed to sweep.

Octazooka - Accuracy Lower
Flash Cannon - Fairy Coverage
Double Team/Scald - Evasion Up/STAB (for competitive)
Dragon Pulse - Nice STAB, Dragon Coverage
MOVESET COMMENT --- GARCHOMP

Summary: This set is pure damage. Mega Garchomp can dish out amazing damage already, plus in a Sandstorm Earthquake and Stone Edge get even MORE powerful.

Earthquake - Nice STAB
Dragon Rush - Nice STAB, Dragon Coverage
Stone Edge - Ice Coverage
Poison Jab - Fairy Coverage
MOVESET COMMENT --- HAXORUS

Summary: Very similar to Garchomp's set. 147 Attack is nothing to mess with and with STAB can wipe out teams.

Earthquake - Ice Coverage
Dragon Claw - Nice STAB, Dragon Coverage
Poison Jab/Iron Tail - Fairy Coverage (More Accuracy/More Power)
Dragon Dance - Stat Increases for higher sweeping ability.
I feel like you ruled out Salamence too quickly. it only evolve 2 levels later that Garchomp and I found it much better, plus the fact that it adds a flyer for this person't team.
I should probably mention that moves that raise the users Evasion Stat such as Minimize and Double Team are banned in competitive battles. That is of course If your playing by Smogon's rules.
Dan, thats why I also put Scald.
...am i the only one who used a hydreigon here?
