Dragon Cave Wiki

Shallow Water Dragons, or Goldfish Dragons, are a hybrid species released on May 26, 2010, alongside Sunbeam Drakes, Moonglow Drakes and Terrae Dragons. They share the same egg description as Deep Sea Dragons.

Shallow Waters have a Breed Specific Action called Splash that does not really do anything. This BSA is a joke in reference to the Pokémon Magikarp. In the games, Power Points (or PP) are required in order to perform moves- because Shallow Waters only have 1 PP for Splash, they can only use it once a day. If the Splash page was refreshed, the action name was changed to "Struggle"- this is the name of the attack Pokemon perform when they have exhausted all their PP. The "struggle" message has since been removed from the DC site. After using Splash 100 times, users can earn a Magikarp badge on their scroll. The Splash usage count is cumulative across as many dragons a user has on their scroll that uses Splash each day.

Under the old Breed sort, these dragons sorted as "Goldfish" on a user's scroll. As of August 14, 2016, they now sort using their Encyclopedia name.

Mature Hatchling[]

"Aww... It's a cute baby dragon. It enjoys playing in shallow water.
And look! It's grown fins and it likes to make bubbles in the water. It must be close to maturing."


"Shallow Water dragons are found in tropical regions where the water is warm. They use their magic to hunt, using bubbles to capture small fish and animals. Their large, webbed feet make them excellent swimmers and they are able to move at very high speeds. Due to their bright color, these dragons are easily spotted in the lagoons where they live."
