Dragonair (ハクリュー) is the 148th Pokémon in the Pokédex. It is a Dragon-Type, and it is known as the Dragon Pokémon.

Dragonair uses the Shed Skin Ability. This Ability gives it a 1 in 3 chance of healing itself from one of the five Major Status Conditions every turn that it is afflicted by said condition. A second Ability is available to Dragonite from the Dream World, the Marvel Scale Ability. This Ability will increase its Defense by 50% when afflicted with a Status Condition.

Dratini can evolve into Dragonair at Level 30, and gain the opportunity to evolve into Dragonite starting at Level 55.

Dragonair is in the Egg Groups Dragon and Water 1, and its Egg will take approximately 10,240 Steps to hatch. It takes Dragonair 1,250,000 Experience Points to reach Level 100.

[edit] Anime/Manga Information

[edit] Anime

A Wild Dragonair appeared after evolving from Dratini in an episode that was banned in English-speaking countries due to the usage of a projectile weapon. Clair would also obtain a Dragonair after her Dratini evolved. Ash would face Dragonair in a Gym Battle against Clair during the episode Better Eight Than Never. Her Dragonair would defeat Pikachu before being beaten by Charizard.

While Dragonair hasn't appeared in any of the films, a Wild Dragonair appears in the Pikachu Short "Pikachu's Rescue Adventure."

[edit] Manga

Dragonair's Manga Information is unknown as of writing.

[edit] Pokémon Information

[edit] 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.
