The '''Dragon type''' (Japanese: '''ドラゴン''' ''Dragon'') is one of the eleven {{TCG|Type|TCG types}}. It is represented by the color gold and symbolized by a serpentine figure.
The Dragon type contains most {{type|Dragon}} Pokémon found in the main series video games. For example, {{p|Salamence}}, {{p|Rayquaza}}, and {{p|Haxorus}} are all Dragon types in the TCG. All Dragon-type Pokémon represented in the TCG so far have received Dragon-type cards from {{TCG|Dragons Exalted}} onward, except for [[Mega Evolution|Mega]] {{TCG|Ampharos}}, [[Mega Evolution|Mega]] {{TCG|Sceptile}}, and {{TCG|Tyrunt}}. Prior to this, all Dragon types were generally {{TCG|Colorless}} types.
Unlike all other types, there is no Dragon type {{DL|Energy card (TCG)|Basic Energy}} card, and no Pokémon can use a Dragon type energy in its {{TCG|Attack}}.
Dragon Pokémon cards were associated with two non-Colorless types of energy costs in their attacks (for example, {{TCG ID|Roaring Skies|Zekrom|64}}'s attack costs used {{e|Lightning}} and {{e|Fire}} energies even though it was not {{type|Fire}}). After [[Generation VII]], especially with the release of {{TCG|Ultra Prism}}, most Dragon Pokémon cards with secondary types in the [[Core series]] do not use an energy cost type that does not correspond to their secondary type.
