The Draconid people (Japanese: 流星(りゅうせい)(たみ) Meteor people) are an ancient tribe of people that live in the Hoenn region. They worship Rayquaza, who they refer to as the "Dragon Lord", after it saved the world from Primal Groudon and Primal Kyogre.

In the core series games

The Draconid people first appeared in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. The only known members are Zinnia, an old woman, and Aster.

Originally, they were a tribe of Dragon-type Pokémon Trainers that lived in Meteor Falls, in a time when meteors constantly showered the area and Primal Groudon and Primal Kyogre fought, until the super-ancient Pokémon were stopped by Rayquaza. A thousand years later, when a meteor struck what is now Sootopolis, Groudon and Kyogre were awakened. The Lorekeeper, standing with a rainbow stone, wished for Rayquaza to return. When it returned, that wish allowed Rayquaza to Mega Evolve. After a fierce battle, Groudon and Kyogre returned to the depths, and Rayquaza returned to the sky. Afterwards, the Draconids built the Sky Pillar, where they can summon their Lord Rayquaza. The Sky Pillar is decorated with a mural painted by the Draconids. After a thousand years of peace, they foretold that a meteor would strike once again, and planned to call Rayquaza to prevent it from striking the Pokémon world.

According to a Scientist at the Devon Corporation, the Draconids found that their Key Stones would react with Rayquaza's mikado organ, allowing it to Mega Evolve.

The Draconid people debuted in the Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire arc of Pokémon Adventures. They are a tribe of people that live with Dragon-type Pokémon and worship Rayquaza, who they refer to as the "Dragon Lord" (Japanese: 竜神様). Known members include Zinnia, Aster, Jinga, Renza, Tomatoma, and the village Elder. The Draconids live in a hidden settlement located underneath Meteor Falls named Meteor Village, which is led by their Elder. A millennium ago, the Draconids foresaw that a giant meteoroid would crash into the planet and destroy it. The current generation spent their time during the arc attempting to avert this crisis, though Zinnia's mission to do so got tangled up with her personal vendetta against the Devon Corporation.
