The Dragon-type has always been one of the strongest in the Pokémon franchise. Pokémon like Garchomp, Dragonite, and Rayquaza have reigned supreme in the series for decades due to their dominant typing. While Fairy Pokémon have slightly nerfed them, they're still one of the best options in any game.

In Pokémon Sparkling Diamond and Sparkling Pearl, the same is true. However, there are several ways to make them even stronger in Sinnoh. One way is to teach them the Draco Meteor move. It's arguably the most powerful Dragon-type move ever created and players will want their best Dragon Pokemon to learn it.



Below, players can find out how to do just that.

To start, you will need to have found the TM100 for Rock Climb and defeated the Snowpoint City Gym. This allows you to use the HM for climbing outside of battle and start climbing mountains using a wild Bidoof.

With the seventh Gym badge in your possession, you'll want to fly to Celestic Town and then start heading east. This will require you to use the Defog HM. Once on the road east of Celestic Town, you want to continue further until you reach a wall that you can climb down. It's right next to a green-haired coach and next to a bridge and some stairs that lead to two coaches running in a circle.


You want to use Rock Climb to lower the rocks and then use it again to climb up another set of rocks. This will bring you to a battle with a purple-haired trainer. Fight them then go north to find a house. This is Grandma Wilma's house and she will teach one of your Dragon-type Pokemon the Draco Meteor move.

This move is only teachable to Dragon-types and can only be used once, so be careful which Pokemon you teach it to. You can wait until you have Dialga or Palkia or you can use it on a Pokemon like Garchomp, Kingdra or Dragonite. Either way, you'll have a Dragon-type move with 150 power and 90 accuracy.
