I was wandering how many members out there enjoy trading? In the future we could have giveaways or prizes of dragon legendaries or hidden ability or shiny dragons, but I would like to make sure that enough of my fellow dragon tamers would be interested and able to participate should the occasion come.

That's why they would be prizes and giveaways. You wouldn't have to trade away your own dragon ^_^
You would just receive a dragon, not have to lose one.

In addition to our new series a Dragon's Tale I am going to spotlight a different dragon type pokemon each month in no particular order, eventually I hope we discuss every dragon pokemon there is!



The Dragon for the month of October is Giratina. I thought he would be a good choice because October is the month of Halloween, and Giratina is a ghost type as well as a dragon, a ghost with a fearsome appearance, and dark origins. According to Pokemon Diamond and Pearl, Giratina is a "Pokémon that is said to live in a world on the reverse side of ours. It appears in an ancient cemetery."

Giratina's Pokemon Platinum dex entry reads that, "It was banished for its violence. It silently gazed upon the old world from the Distortion World."



What do you think of Giratina? Do you like it? If yes, what do you like about it? If no, what do you dislike about Giratina?

Giratina looks very primordial and intimidating like a demon straight out of the occult. I was a little afraid of him at first, but I think he is very interesting nonetheless, so I would say I like him. It is a striking design that evokes the fear, mystery and awe he is supposed to, and I think he fits in very well as part of the creation trio. He has an unforgettable and exciting battle theme, a very distinctive and beautiful shiny, and it is a really good Pokemon even by legendary standards with great stats overall, just monstrous heft, a cool item and lots of utility options and coverage.

I have enjoyed Giratina's appearances on screen, especially in Pokemon Generations and the Arceus and the Jewel of Life movie where he's very heroic. Most of all I think his backstory in the games is interesting and deep.


Which form of Giratina do you prefer? The Origin form or the Altered form?

I like the Origin form best design-wise. But I like the bulk of the altered form.

Did you ever play pokemon Platinum and journey through the Giratina's distortion world?

Yes, that was really the highlight of the game and it made my opinion of the Sinnoh region climb higher. It was so surreal and challenging moving through this environment, and I really liked the increased roles for the Lake Guardians and Cynthia.

Ah I meant more in like most of my dragons are straight up cards, not pokemon :P

as for the topic at hand:

What do you think of Giratina? Do you like it? If yes, what do you like about it? If no, what do you dislike about Giratina?

My favorite legendary in Pokemon, the Ghost/Dragon typing at the moment was very interesting and it's just such an amazing looking dragon.

Which form of Giratina do you prefer? The Origin form or the Altered form?

I actually like the Altered form more, he just feels like a towering giant in that form.

Did you ever play pokemon Platinum and journey through the Giratina's distortion world?

yes and fun fact I got lost for 2 hours in it one time... long story

Challenge: Share a dragon moment.

Post videos of cool dragons!!! This could be a movie scene, a cut scene from a video game, a character from a cartoon show, anything you like featuring dragons.

The link below is from the beginning of my all time favorite film (outside of Pokemon) Dragonheart. A wicked king is killed in a revolt by his people. The King's young son prince Einon gets wounded in the peasant's rebellion. With the help of a loyal knight, Einon's courageous mother Queen Aislinn drags her dying child to a sacred, old cave where an ancient dragon resides, praying for a miracle.

I have a couple of questions to put to my fellow dragon tamers this month.

Do you remember the first dragon pokemon you ever caught? If so what pokemon was it?

Mine was a Dratini from the safari zone in pokemon yellow. I really looked forward to catching that pokemon, it was so precious-looking and I respected that it was supposed to be nearly extinct. It was an especially enticing pokemon because they had not shown it properly in the anime at the time. The Legend of Dratini episode never aired in the US, and dragonite was kept really mysterious and in shadows during the Mystery of the Lighthouse episode, so I knew I was looking for something rare and special. It was not easy to catch since it didn't have the highest encounter rate, you needed the super rod, the rod doesn't always give you a bite, and when it does it is a psuedolegendary with a low catch rate, and you were armed with only a handful of safari balls and cannot battle It to weaken it. It was nerve-racking, but finally capturing a dratini was my pride and joy. I cheered. I still had my work cut out for me because it didn't evolve fully until level 55, but it was worth every moment of my time. The happy design when Dragonair evolves into dragonite is some that makes me smile. I named my first dragonite Sunny like the warm sunshine. Having a pokemon that powerful that my friends couldn't defeat really made me feel like I had a guardian angel protecting me. You will always be the King of the Dragons for me Sunny.

Who is your favorite dragon pokemon trainer?

Mine is the forgotten Zinnia. The Delta plotline is what made ORAS my favorite Pokemon game. Just when we thought the game was over and everyone was safe from Groudon and Kyogre, and the pokemon league challenge was complete, then this dancing wild child shows up and we have to save the world all over again with her help.

I just find this character really intriguing and mysterious. I love the concept of the Draconids and particularly the job of the lore keeper to pass on the history of the world and reveal Rayquqza's true power. The mythology of the pokemon world is my favorite part of the series, and the inclusion of Zinnia was I thought a novel and dynamic way to usher in both new a plot and expand upon the existing world-building of my favorite region. Zinnia's relationship with her whismur and why it has the name Aster is also interesting. My girl Zinnia is wielding some really cool dragon pokemon on top of it all, my favorite being Goodra.

Chances are that the first Dragon type I caught was a Dratini since I started with RBY, but that was so long ago now that I can't really remember. But the chances are pretty high.

I didn't caught it, as it was a gift Pokémon, but the first Dragon-type Pokémon that I used was Dratini in Crystal. You know, the ExtremeSpeed one.

My favorite dragon Pokémon trainer is Lance. I just think he's really cool.

Henlo dere, I wish to join this club with Zekrom. It's quite shocking!

I'll answer the rest of the questions later but Hydreigon is my favourite Dragon-type. I just love its colour scheme and it's a creative spin to the hydra.
Welcome friend of dragons, you already have a proper dragon name I see!*Zekrom shield you with it's black form and escorts you through the field of thunder unharmed*

Take up this dragon gem my sister!



Hydreigon is indeed a great dragon pokemon. It's color scheme is brilliant, perfect for a master ball. It is indeed a very creative pokemon. It sounds like you know your Greek mythology! I have a German Hydreigon that was traded to me, Trikephalo. Since the name Hydreigon is derived from the German word for three "drei" as well as the mythological Hydra I think he's just perfect :)

Many of us on PC have been anxiously following news about the Pokemon Sword and Shield games this year, from official updates to leaked content.

Are there any new dragons that you are looking forward to in Galar?

I spoiler tagged my thoughts just in case there is someone here who is not quite ready to know what is in the Galar region and what is not, and means to save such discoveries for their own playthrough.

Spoiler:
I am personally looking forward to the psuedolegendary Dreepy line. I believe they are a dragon/ghost line of pokemon. These guys remind me a little of mega Sceptile's coloration, an old favorite who sadly is not in the Galar region. Well, at least I have these little fellas to keep me company until Game Freak sorts all that out.

I think it's awesome that the final form Dragapault in addition to having a wicked name can fire some dreepy from it's cheek canons.


As most of you probably already know pretty much the whole pokedex for the Galar region has been leaked, and some pokefans are very upset by how small the dex is, myself included.
Did your favorite dragon make the cut?

You can view the pokedex here if you don't know. Bobandbill, Erik Destler and Sheep have all done an admirable job cataloging this content, keeping us up to date and well-informed and have written some really well-researched and interesting daily articles.

https://daily.pokecommunity.com/2019/11/04/analysis-of-the-full-galar-dex/

Spoiler:

My personal favorite the Dratini line is sadly not in the Galar dex. Not being able to import any Dragonite, Dragonair or Dratini into my game through Pokemon Home honestly makes me feel like someone plunged a knife into my heart. I have a history with this Pokemon that reaches far back in time.

Dragons, snakes and worms are everywhere in British iconography. With legends and ballads from St George and the Dragon to the red and white dragons of King Vortigen in Arthurian Legend. Even King Henry VII had dragons on his coat of arms. So the more dragons in Galar the better!

Spoiler:
I was honestly suprised with Dragapult. The way Pokemon has been since Gen 6 is that there was only 1-2 designs over the whole generation that I actually liked and it diminished each gen. Dragapult looks pretty sweet compared to the rest.

Spoiler:
With how many dragons got axed, no mine didn't. Then again not too suprising Giratina would not make it :P

Obvious Sword and Shield spoilers.

Are there any new dragons that you are looking forward to in Galar?

Spoiler:
I'm looking forward to the Dreepy line. Dragapult is the best Pokémon from Gen VIII. I like the fact that it can fire Dreepy from its canons and it has a cool name as well. I'm also fond of Eternatus because it reminds me of Angels from Neon Genesis Evangelion.


Did your favorite dragon make the cut?

Spoiler:
Fortunately, the Deino line is in the game. I'm not sure if I'm gonna use them in-game though.

Nope. RIP Zekrom. Box legends weren't likely to make the cut.

Spoiler:
Maybe the Dreepy line? Would've been interested in the two part dragon fossils but they look awful. Do have a few rare/unique type combos in the supposed Galar Dex though, Duraladon's the first Dragon/Steel since Dialga, and the apple dragon is the first (non-mega) Grass/Dragon. I'm a bit interested in Eternatus too. Poison/Dragon's been done before, but it's a neat type combo. There's enough dragons in the dex that one will probably make it onto my team, but we'll see what the team ends up being in the end.

really, really have to question though why of all things psyducking Turtonator made it into SwSh

Thanks for accepting me!
**Have you ever encountered any shiny dragon pokemon?
If the Haxorus, Gible, and Dratini from the Gen 5 games and events don't count then I have actually ran into a shiny Druddigon while leveling up my Pokemon for the living dex.

**Other fictional dragons of interest?
There's lots.
My current avatar is a Spitzfire from the Dragon Quest series (higher quality image) and I really like how it's both a dog and a dragon and in 11 (a game I may or may not have poured 100+ hours into) it is quite a formidable foe at the start too. Dragon Quest also includes a drake, hydra, serpent, and even slimes that act like dragons. My favourite enemy is the Seasaur but it's more of a sea monster over a dragon.

Edit: It seems like the images don't work on mobile, I'll fix them later.
Edit 2: Should be good now hopefully.

I've been reading a review on Digimon design and they have a lot of cool looking dragon designs. Some of my favourites are Cyberdramon, Dorugoramon, Metalseadramon, and Ouryumon.

And then I like dragons from Final Fantasy and Spyro himself.

Do you remember the first dragon pokemon you ever caught? If so what pokemon was it?
My first Pokemon game was XD so I believe it was either Altaria or Salamence.

Who is your favorite dragon pokemon trainer?
I too like Zinnia a lot for the reasons stated; my username was Zinnia at one point too.

Are there any new dragons that you are looking forward to in Galar?
Spoiler: swsh thoughts
While I'm not getting SWSH, I really, really LOVE Dragapult! It's a shooting ghost gecko with a lovable face. I also made a sprite of it:


After seeing it in action, I also LOVE Eternatus! It's basically a giant dragon skeleton that turns into a hand upon Gigantamaxing.


Spoiler: Did your favorite dragon make the cut? (more spoilers below)


RIP Naganadel. :(
