by Gordon Bicker


From Dratini to Hydreigon, there’s a diverse range of Dragon-type Pokémon out there to catch in Pokémon GO. Dragon-type Pokémon have been around in the franchise since the beginning of the revered series. This guide article will follow the format of our other articles on catching different types of Pokemon and tell you the tricks and tips of how to begin catching Dragon-type Pokémon in Pokémon GO.

I Need Those Pokémon! How can I get them?

There is an abundance of methods that you can follow in order to begin catching Dragon-type Pokémon for your collection of loveable Pokémon. Firstly, the main method is to look for the particular set of Pokémon on particularly windy (especially near water), gusty, or foggy days when more players have mentioned being able to catch Dragon Pokémon on days like these. However, always take care and be safe when going out on windy days, never put yourself in risky areas, your safety comes first.

Confirmed places of Dragon-type spawn locations are areas such as landmarks, cities, and parks. Along with this, players have noted it can be quite difficult to find this type of Pokémon but with determination and preparation, you will be sure to collect them quickly!

Another method to catch the Pokémon is to trade with your friends for the ones they have already caught. In order to do this, meet up with your friend and be in at least 100 meters of them, afterwards navigate to the trading screen by pressing on your trainer profile. Go to the friends’ tab and open the list, press on your desired partner to trade with then tap on the trade button to enter into the trading screen.

From this point, your partner can decide what Pokémon they want to trade with you and then you will be able to obtain the dragon-type Pokémon you want if they are extra tough to find through the game mechanics alone. The Pokémon’s HP, CP, and other notable stats are adjusted when you trade compared to what they are for your partner. This will be showcased to you before the trade on screen.
