    "There's really not much bad negative about this Pokemon. From the Mega Evolution, the high and fairly balance base stats, and the varied move set that you can adapt to many situations. Definitely, one of the best dragon-type pokemon to get."

    "One of the best dragon type pokemon in the game. It has low speed but more than makes up with powerful attacks and high defense and special defense. Dragon dance is a killer skill and my personal favorite."

    "I'll take Salamence over Dragonite any day. Aside from a lower defense stat, pretty much everything else is better with Salamance. It also has higher HP and Speed and sweeps teams down like nobody's business. Just get it."

DID YOU KNOW?

Before becoming a game developer, Game Freak was a print publication company? It focused on covering Japan's arcade scene. It's headed by Satoshi Tajiri, credited as the creator of Pokémon. Game Freak interviewed arcade owners and get tips for playing popular arcade games. With the release of the Famicom, Tajiri and Masuda wanted to try making a game for it. It was with the Yoshi that Game Freak would start its journey as a game developer with Nintendo. After a few projects, Game Freak showed Nintendo the earliest ideas and versions of Pokémon. The earliest concept was an emulation of catching bugs, and that hasn’t changed much over the years.

The other important piece of a Pokémon game is the Pokémon themselves. Each generation of games adds new monsters to the collection. It now features over 800 creatures. Today, the Pokemon series of games is in its 7th generation release cycle. Its presence in the mobile space is more involved. Apps for both Android and iOS platforms are plenty. It still centered around the Pokemon creatures themselves. One of the more popular with gamers are dragon-type Pokemon. These creatures appeared as early as the days of Charizard. One of the franchise's first dragon Pokemon and many people consider as one of the best fire type Pokemon. It also follows the same game mechanic established long ago. Even the best grass type Pokemon will always be at a disadvantage against fire types. No matter what type of Pokemon you like best, there are plenty to choose from and hours of gameplay in store for you.

    "It is a close contest between Garchomp and Salamance but I prefer Garchomp for the slight edge is his speed stat. I always thought that it had a nicely balanced and high stats and now that it can mega evolve, there is no reason not to get him."

    "Dialga is really op and has the highest base stat of all steel type pokemon. He is also pretty much resistant to everything and immune to one making him as an ideal tank. He can also hold his own against other dragon types which just makes ridiculous at this point. "

    "It's a really cool looking dragon type pokemon with a varied list of defensive and offensive moves making him easy to adapt to many battles and playstyles. Add to that a high attack and good speed and you get yourself a great dragon pokemon to have."

    "Kyurem has an advantage over other dragon type Pokemon. That is he is able to leverage the innate weakness against ice types in other dragons and use it against them. Rayquaza is still my top pick but he is an ice-type dragon that's too good to pass up."

    "Despite looking like an ice type dragon due to its appearance, it is actually a fire type and is probably one of the nicest-looking dragons in the game. That alone might be enough reason to get it but it is also quite op."

    "Not as hyped as other dragon types but it's just as good. It has high attacks as well as nice speed. Being part ground-type, it negates some of its weakness against water Pokemon. Best thing of all, it's really easy to get."
