The Pokémon franchise is known for its battle and typing mechanics. There are a plethora of Pokémon types with strengths and weaknesses to keep in mind when taking on a foe. One of the most infamously difficult typings to go up against is Dragon-type. Dragon-type Pokémon are often among the most powerful Pokémon in each game, and that’s sure to be true in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.

Dragon-type Defense Chart
There aren’t very many typings that are good against Dragon-type Pokémon, making these powerful attackers even more difficult to take on.
|Types that are super-effective against Dragon-type Pokémon||Ice, Fairy, and Dragon-type attacks|
|Types that are not effective against Dragon-type Pokémon||Water, Fire, Electric, and Grass-type attacks|
Pokémon players wanting to go toe to toe with a Dragon-type Pokémon will do best with a Fairy-type Pokémon in hand. This will give them an edge, as Fairy-type moves are not only super-effective against Dragon-type Pokémon, the Dragon-type Pokémon’s move will have no effect against them.
