Charizard was, without a doubt, my favorite Pokémon as a young boy growing up. I could Mega evolve this Pokémon to become a dragon type and even use different movesets to be victorious over my opponents, and this really felt amazing(💪).
My spirit for this Pokémon, however, dealt a blow when I tried to teach my Charizard the Draco meteor move but just couldn’t (😭).
After several failed attempts, I finally realized that it was impossible to teach this move to Charizard. Continue with the post to learn whether Charizard can use Draco Meteor and why the move cannot be taught to Charizard.
Can I teach Charizard Draco Meteor?
There is no way that you can use to teach your Charizard Draco meteor. This is so because the Draco meteor is a move that is simply meant for dragon-type Pokémon only.
It, therefore, means that even though Charizards can mega-evolve into dragon types, they were never dragons to start with, hence their lack of ability to learn this move.
The only exception for a non-Draco Pokémon that can learn the Draco meteor is a Silvally. In Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, Pokémons (Charizard included) can only learn the Draco meteor move naturally, but there is no other loophole to teach the move.
The only other possibility that Pokémon in Scarlet and Violet can learn this move is if they are caught in a high-level tera raid battle by chance.
Why can’t Charizard learn Draco Meteor?
Draco meteor is an exclusive move for only dragon-type Pokémon. Being a fire/flying type Pokémon, Charizard cannot, therefore, learn this move.
Despite Charizard X being able to mega-evolve into a fire- or dragon-type Pokémon, it is still not capable of learning the Draco meteor move.
This is because, after a battle, the Mega evolution of a Charizard X wears off, making it return to being a fire/flying type Pokémon all over again.
There are, however, some other dragon-type moves that a Charizard can learn, including outrage, dragon claw, and dragon pulse.
What qualities does Charizard miss out on for not being able to learn Draco Meteor?
The table below(👇) shows some of the qualities that Draco Meteor gives to a Pokémon; unfortunately, Charizard cannot be able to possess them.
On the other hand, one might consider this an advantage to Charizard, as the Draco meteor move reduces the user’s special attack by at least two stages after the attack, and each stat is capable of being lowered to a minimum of -6 stages.
Is there any way that Charizard can obtain Draco Meteor?
Unfortunately, the Charizard Pokémon is not able to get the Draco meteor move through levelling up or even breeding (🥲).
Unless Charizard gets a chance to be caught in a high-level tera raid battle as a mega-evolved Charizard X, the Pokémon has no other option to get this move.
