Pumpkin Dragons, or Halloween 2009 Dragons, were the Holiday species given out during Halloween of 2009. Unlike dragons of other holidays, Halloween dragons can be either male or female and do not have a scroll limit set for them. They are only capable of producing more Pumpkin eggs during a certain period when Halloween is celebrated in October. They can still be bred to all year round, producing their partner's breed of egg. Pumpkin dragons are unique in that they can only breed with Pygmies and other Pumpkins.
The lack of a scroll limit for Halloween dragons was explained during one year's event by TJ09: "In the words of the pumpkin dragon's creator, Christmas and Valentine's Day are about giving, but Halloween is about grabbing as much candy for yourself as you can".
Pumpkins were originally nicknamed "Harvest Dragons", but with the release of the actual Harvest Dragons in 2010, the use of the name for Pumpkins was abandoned.
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 Descriptions
"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."
