By Move Tutor

Various Move Tutors will teach Draco Meteor to a Dragon-type Pokémon. From Generation IV to VII, the Pokémon also needs a maximized friendship rating. It can be taught to Arceus while it is holding the Draco Plate and to Silvally while it is holding the Dragon Memory (no Memory requirement in SwSh). The move cannot be taught to Pokémon that only become Dragon-types via Mega Evolution, Ultra Burst, or abilities such as Protean and Libero, as their Dragon typing cannot be accessed outside of battle.

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.
