Dragon (type)

Dragons are among the most elusive and powerful of all Pokémon. Nine legendary Pokémon are part Dragon type and four have legendary-like stats.

They are notoriously difficult to train due to requiring more EXP points per level than most non-legendary Pokémon, and the fact they evolve much later and thus are in their weaker forms for longer. Interestingly, many final-evolution Dragon types have a 4x weakness to the Ice type.
