Dragon type is one of the 18 Pokémon elemental types. Although Dragon-type moves are only super effective against their own type, most Dragon-type Pokémon have higher offensive stats than other Pokémon to compensate the lack of type coverage and strike their opponents with neutral damage. However, most final form Dragon-type Pokémon take quadruple damage from Ice-type moves, and the newly introduced Fairy-type further balanced the dominance of Dragon-type Pokémon because of its immunity and effectiveness to Dragon-type Pokémon. Rival Tess specializes in Dragon-type Pokémon.
