Learnset

By Move Tutor

Draco Meteor can only be tutored to Dragon-type Pokémon. Consequently, it can only be taught to Arceus while it is holding the Draco Plate, and to Silvally while it is holding the Dragon Memory.

Similar to Blast Burn, Frenzy Plant, and Hydro Cannon, the Pokémon to which the move is to be taught must have maximum friendship.

Trivia

  • In December 2005, prior to the release of Pokémon Diamond and Pearl, CoroCoro Comics January ran a contest where fans could name the strongest Dragon-type move.[1] Draco Meteor was the move that won this contest.[2]
  • Its Japanese name, りゅうせいぐん Ryūseigun (Meteor Shower), contains りゅう ryū (dragon), which is likely a play on its Dragon typing.
