Her Dragonair would defeat Pikachu before being beaten by Charizard.

Dragonair's Manga Information is unknown as of writing.
 Pokémon Information
 Competitive Battling
Eviolite has been a big reason behind Dragonair appearing outside of the NFE tier--with this item and access to Extremespeed its a viable option in the Never-Utilized and Rarely-Utilized Tiers of Competitive Battling. It doesn't have much in terms of Speed or Special Attack, but Dragon Dance makes it a physical sweeping threat. Using Special Attacks would really be situational at best, however, leaving Physical sweeping as the best option for Dragonair.
