Pumpkin Dragons, or Halloween 2009 Dragons, are Halloween dragons released in 2009. Pumpkin Dragons are the first, and currently only limited release breed that is not a standard dragon. Though considered a pygmy breed, Pumpkin eggs use the standard egg template.
Under the old Breed sort, these dragons sorted as "Halloween 2009 Dragon" on a user's scroll. As of August 14, 2016, they now sort using their Encyclopedia name.
Official Dragon DescriptionsEdit
"This egg smells like the autumn harvest."
"Aww... It's a cute baby dragon. It enjoys running through a nearby pumpkin patch."
"Aww... It's a cute baby dragon. It enjoys running through a nearby pumpkin patch.
And look! It's grown its wings! It must be close to maturing."
"Pumpkin dragons are a very small breed, named after their affinity for pumpkins. They are always found living inside hollowed-out pumpkins, and are only seen during the harvest season. Young children often hollow out and decorate their pumpkins in the hope that a Pumpkin dragon will make it his or her home."
