A second Ability is available to Dragonite from the Dream World, the Multiscale Ability. Using this Ability, the amount of damage done to it is cut in half if it's HP is at its maximum.
Dragonite takes on the appearance of a winged dragon. Its wings are small when compared to the rest of its body.
 Gender Differences
Dragonite doesn't have any differences to differentiate between male and female.
 Game Information
 Original Games
During the first four Generations, the only way to obtain a Dragonite is to evolve Dragonair. In Generation V, Wild Dragonite started to appear in the Wild, albeit on rare occasions. Dragonite can be found outside Dragonspiral Tower in Black, White, Black 2 and White 2 by Fishing at a Shaking Spot. Dragonite can also appear at a Hidden Hollow on Route 18 in Black 2 and White 2, a Dragonite that has its Hidden Ability, Multiscale.
 Spin-Off Games
Dragonite is the last obtainable Shadow Pokémon in Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness. After obtaining the other 82 obtainable Shadow Pokémon, Wanderer Miror B can be found at the top of the tower in Gateon Port, which is where you'll be able to Snag this particular Dragonite.
Dragonite appears at Phobos Jet, Trozei Battle and Mr. Who's Den in Pokémon Trozei!
Dragonite can only be obtained by evolving Dragonair in the first set of Mystery Dungeon games, as well as Explorers of Time, Explorers of Darkness and Explorers of Sky. While Dragonite appears at Hidden Land 1F-15F & I1F-8F, it cannot be recruited, leaving evolution as the only method of obtaining Dragonite in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon 2. Dragonite is exclusive to Blazing Adventure Squad in Mystery Dungeon 3, appearing at Mystery Plains 15F-19F and Legendary Volcanic Island on Floors 26, 28 & 29, 35, 38, 41-46 and 48 & 49.
Dragonite can only be captured once in Pokémon Ranger, which is prior to using the Dragonite Bus after clearing the game's sixth mission.
Dragonite can be found at World Axle Lake B2 in Pokémon Rumble Blast.
The only way to obtain Dragonite is to evolve a Dragonair in Pokémon Conquest.

 Anime/Manga Information

Lance used his Dragonite to defeat and capture the Red Gyarados in the episode Rage Of Innocence, and appeared again during the episode The Scuffle of Legends, helping to quell the fighting between Groudon and Kyogre. Professor Oak also used a Dragonite during the 10th Anniversary episode The Mastermind of Mirage Pokémon.

 Pokémon Information
 Competitive Battling
Dragonite is a part of the Overused (OU) tier of competitive battling. With great overall stats, an amazing ability in Multiscale, and a nice movepool, Dragonite is not to be a threat taken lightly. Its access to Dragon Dance can make it a strong sweeping threat while its movepool lends itself to being a strong threat with access to moves like Outrage and Extreme Speed, with the latter being notable due to its +2 priority that outpaces priority attackers like Talonflame. Multiscale gives Dragonite plenty of set-up opportunities thanks to halving the damage Dragonite takes, allowing it to set-up even on super effective attacks like Latios's Draco Meteor. Dragonite can also elect to use a Choice Band set that gives it immediate power right off the bat so that it can wallbreak or revenge kill with Extreme Speed. A bulky Roost set is also a viable option thanks to Dragonite's solid defenses which are further bolstered by Multiscale. However, Dragonite is not without faults, as it is shut down easily by Fairy-types like Azumarill and Clefable, both of which are extremely common in the tier and prevent Dragonite from spamming Outrage. Dragonite's over-reliance on Multiscale to be effective can lead to problems especially considering Multiscale can be rendered ineffective through Stealth Rock or Rocky Helmet damage and sandstorm. Dragonite's mediocre Speed stat leaves it outsped by numerous threats, making it hard for Dragonite to pull off a non-Dragon Dance set with ease.
