The Village of Dragons is a place where people raise and admire Dragon-type Pokémon. An elder who lives there will also give out Axew for Trainers to raise into Haxorus. It was first mentioned by Iris in The Bloom Is on Axew! when she explained how she obtained her Axew.
Statues of Reshiram and Zekrom were built in the center of the village to commemorate them.
Dragon Pokémon roam around the village freely, such as Axew and its evolved form, Fraxure. Not all the Pokémon here are Dragon-type though: other Pokémon such as Drilbur live here as well.
Every year, there is a Pokémon battle tournament that Iris and her Excadrill were seen competing at. Iris competed in it one time and did very well. She felt confident enough to challenge Dragon Master Drayden to a battle, but Drayden and his Haxorus easily overpowered her and won.
According to Iris, most people from the village dream to become a Dragon Master.
The village was first seen live in A Village Homecoming!.
