Crack! A bolt of lightning disrupts an ancient Dragon Island. The pillar of electricity strikes the Nest, and the egg begins to glow with intense energy. This is how Lightning Dragons first came into existence. Nowadays, we can thankfully breed Lightning Dragons like normal - it's much safer than attracting lightning to your Island.
Owning a Lightning Dragon is a big responsibility. Due to their electric personalities, they shouldn't ever go swimming in a lake or pond with other dragons, or even be allowed out during a rainstorm. On the other hand, they make an excellent bug zapper.
In their adult form, Lighting Dragons walk with all four feet on the ground. In addition to making them run much faster, this allows them to stay grounded. Lightning Dragons are essentially giant lightning rods AND lightning conductors, so when they're struck by lightning, the shockwaves are felt island-wide.
Lightning Dragon, make sure to wear thick rubber gloves, on top of another pair of thick rubber gloves. Lightning Dragons naturally conduct their own electricity in high volumes, but it's very volatile. Some scientists claim if they could harness an Epic Lightning Dragon's raw energy, it would be able to power an entire human metropolis.

Note: You cannot acquire the Lightning Dragon through breeding.
The Lightning Dragon has special behavior when it is used as a breeding parent. Unlike dragons with only basic types, it will obey the following rules:
When the Pink type is alone in the pool, it will add pure dragons of its component types (Red and White) to the list of possible outcomes, but it will not split into its component types. When Pink is included in the pool along with one or more other types, the Pink type can split into Red and White. However, if it is split, then Pink is no longer in the pool for the duration. Thus, the presence of Pink in a pool will either add the Pink type if it does not split or the Red and White types if it does split.
When considering hybrids of the Pink type whose other types are all split type components of Pink (Red and White), the Pink type may contribute both Pink and its split types (Red and White) if both parents have the Pink type. For example, breeding a Virtue Dragon with a Lightning Dragon can result in a Justice Dragon because one parent contributed Pink while the other contributed Red (through splitting). Keep in mind that the Pink type will not split if it is alone in the pool, so you must use at least one Pink hybrid as a parent if you want to take advantage of this method.
Although the Pink type can split into Red and White for breeding purposes, it still only counts as one type. This is important when considering the number of types for type-amount-dependent dragons such as the Diamond Dragon. Breeding a Forest Dragon with a Lightning Dragon only counts as three types: Green, Pink, and Yellow.
You can not breed the Lightning Dragon, despite its baby description. It is only obtainable from completing a goal in the Dragon Album.
The Lightning Dragon's design is based upon the Forest Dragon's, although there are differences between the two.
