Attention, fellow wizards! Dragons will soon be appearing in the Wizarding World.
The Harry Potter: Wizards Unite team at Niantic announced that the mythological beasts will be debuting in the game at the upcoming Wizards Unite Fan Festival in Indianapolis on August 31st and September 1st.
After the festival, various species of dragons will become available worldwide as regional exclusives, similar to the regional pokemon mechanic in Pokemon Go.
The official Wizards Unite Twitter account released a short video showing a Common Welsh Green dragon being taken on in combat:

The four dragons that will be available initially are the Common Welsh Green, Antipodean Opaleye, Chinese Fireball and Peruvian Vipertooth. As we know, in the Harry Potter universe, there are several more species of Dragons, so expect more to come in time.
All four of the Dragons will be available at the Wizards Unite Fan Festival before being regionally locked. The dragons will be joining the oddities section of the game, with combat set to be the same as taking on a vampire, werewolf or doxy.
We also got a sneak peek of the Registry pages for the Dragons during the announcement, with four dragons and four dragon eggs being added to the game, giving players eight new Foundables to find.
It is not currently known which dragons will be available in which regions, but rest assured that HP-WU will have a full guide to dragons as soon as the information becomes available to us.
