The Best and Worst of Dragon Pokemon

Honorable mentions: Druddigon
Looks: Probably one of the best-designed pseudos, in my opinion. It's terrifying, yet so cool. Its design screams "Dragon!" and "evil!" And its atrophied little stub legs are cute.
Strength: It's fast, it hits hard, and it has a very wide movepool. It's so fun to play around with, and I find myself giving it different moves every time I use it.
Why I like it: What made me choose Hydreigon over Druddigon was that I used Hydreigon a lot more on my teams. I'll try and use Druddigon when I can, but it's more fun raising a baby Deino into a Hydreigon, and the whole line's very useful. I also really love the creative turn this line goes: it starts off blind,and goes crazy when it gains vision. The fact that one or two brains probably die in the creation of Hydreigon makes it even cooler.
Honorable mentions: Gabite, Bagon
Looks: God darn it, there's way too much smut of this Pokemon, I can't even use Safe Search without finding some weird fetish attached to it. At least someone's appreciating Goodra's design, because I think it's a disappointing finish for Goomy's line. I really wish they kept it more like a goopy snail monster, or a different kind of dragon. Goomy and Sliggoo were so different from other Dragons, and then this thing just conforms to the norms. It's too much like an uglier, gooey Dragonite.
Strength: Every time I face it, it just goes down quickly. That physical defense keeps this thing from lasting long. They're basically my Klefki's bitch when it lets out Play Rough. Looking at its ability, Hydration, it might work well on a weather team. I don't use weather teams. Gooey might work if I put some defense EVs in there, but I prefer Sticky Web. (I rarely run into Defog or Rapid Spinner teams, anyway.) And that pure typing, while not bad, isn't that appealing to me. Overall, it doesn't really interest me battle-wise.
Why I dislike it: It's an extremely disappointing turn for an interesting and different Dragon line. The single typing is also pretty boring, even if it's a first among pseudo-legends.
Other: Worst pseudo ever.
What next, guys?
