Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

Why does this website say that zekrom and reshiram have fewer weaknesses than other dragon types?

Because the combos for the fire/dragon have the weaknesses of dragon, ground, and rock. And the weaknesses of the electric/dragon are ground, ice, and dragon.

But dialgia has two: fighting and ground, and palkia and kingdra have one: dragon.

The majority of dragon pokemon have a 4x weakness to ice, that's mainly why I put that sentence on the page. You are right in a way - Dialga, Palkia and Kingdra don't have many weaknesses. But Reshiram and Zekrom have more defensive strengths.

Reshiram will be weak to ground, rock and dragon... but the types fire, electric, grass, bug and steel are weak against dragon/fire.

Zekrom will be weak to ice, ground and dragon... but the types fire, water, electric, grass, flying and steel are weak against dragon/electric.

So overall they have fewer weaknesses.
