All Dragalge weaknesses and Best Counters in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet

Don't let it poison you.

Dragalge is a native Pokémon to the Paldea region in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, though it is exclusive to Scarlet and must be traded to Violet. It is also unique because it is the only Dragon/Poison-type Pokémon. This can make it difficult to deal with if you are not prepared. As a result, you may be wondering what Dragalge is weak to and what the best counters are in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.

How to counter Dragalge in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

Dragalge's excellent Special Defense and good Defense can make it difficult to take down. It is also an excellent Pokémon at poisoning due to its abilities. It also has Adaptability as a hidden ability, giving it extra power behind its stab moves. It can also learn various coverage moves to threaten Pokémon that would normally be strong against it.

We prefer a strong Psychic-type Pokémon to take out Dragalge. Its only Dark-type move is Thief, which is fairly weak, especially with Dragalge's below-average Attack. We recommend Psychic Pokémon like Espeon, Gallade, Rabsca, and Bronzong, as these can either outspeed Dragalge or use their bulk to outlast it.
