I'm currently playing Pokemon Diamond and I want to add a Dragon Type to my team before I challange the Elite Four, but I'm not sure which one to get. (Btw, I have a Rapidash so it doesn't matter if it has 4x Ice Type weakness)

You should probably keep in mind that Garchomp is the only dragon Pokemon you can get.

having two attack moves the same type is useless. I would replace dragon claw with brick break.

He said before the elite 4, you can only get flygon after you beat the elite 4.

You could go for Flygon:

  • Draco Meteor
  • Earth Power/Earthquake
  • Fire Blast
  • SolarBeam

That moveset might be a bit hard to manage to get so here's maybe a more manageable one:

  • Earthquake
  • Dragon Claw
  • U-Turn
  • Stone Edge

You could also go for Altaria:

  • Air Cutter/Toxic
  • Dragon Pulse
  • Flamethrower
  • Roost

And finally we have Garchomp:

  • Earthquake
  • Stone Edge
  • Outrage
  • Sword Dance\Sandstorm


  • Outrage
  • Stone Edge
  • Earthquake
  • Fire Fang

There's a lot of stuff you could do with Garchomp, oh and my personal recommendation is Garchomp, just sayin, gen IV 4 the win.

Hope I helped!
