Dragonite (カイリュー) is the 149th Pokémon in the Pokédex. It is a Dragon/Flying Type, and is known as the Dragon Pokémon.

Dragonite uses the Inner Focus Ability. This Ability gives it an immunity to flinching, unless it gets hit when trying to use Focus Punch. Its Hidden Ability is Multiscale. Using this Ability, the amount of damage done to it is cut in half if its HP is at its maximum.

Dratini can evolve into Dragonair at Level 30 and a second time into Dragonite at Level 55.

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

Game Information

Original Games

In most of its game appearances, the only way to obtain Dragonite is to evolve a Dragonair. In Pokémon Black, White, Black 2 and White 2, however, it can be caught in the wild at Dragonspiral Tower by fishing in Shaking Spots. In Black 2 and White 2, it can be caught in a Hidden Grotto on Route 18.

In Pokémon Sun and Moon, Dragonite can be caught at Poni Gauntlet when called on by a Dratini in an S.O.S. Battle.

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.

Trading Card Game

A Dragonite is listed in the Wizards Promos set. Dragonite is listed as a Common Card in the VS set (2; 1 Clair, 1 Lance), and as an Uncommon Card in the Supreme Victors set. Dragonite is listed as a Rare Card in the Fossil, Team Rocket (2 Dark), Neo Destiny (Light), Expedition (2, 1 EX Card), EX Team Rocket Returns (Dark), EX Delta Species (Delta Species), EX Dragon Frontiers (EX Delta Species), Legends Awakened, and Triumphant sets.

Anime/Manga Information

Anime

A Wild Dragonite appeared as a mystery Pokémon of ginormous proportions in the episode Mystery at the Lighthouse. Team Rocket tried to attack it in order to capture it, but failed.

Several different Trainers have used Dragonite throughout the Anime. Drake, the leader of the Orange League would use a Dragonite in Ash's Orange League Challenge, defeating Charizard and Tauros but losing to Pikachu. 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.

Most recently Iris captured a Dragonite in an episode that has yet to air outside of Japan.

Movies

A Dragonite that was serving as a messenger appeared in the film Mewtwo Strikes Back, Dragonite's only appearance in the films.

Manga

Dragonite's Manga Information is unknown as of writing.

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 that can use its bulk and Multiscale to find numerous 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's best set is a Dragon Dance Fly set with Substitute and Roost that uses its bulk and ability to its full advantage while operating as a bulky late-game sweeper. It can also opt for a more offensive Dragon Dance set thanks to its movepool which includes moves like Outrage and Extreme Speed, with the latter being notable due to its +2 priority that outpaces priority attackers like Talonflame. Outside of the Dragon Dance sets, Dragonite can 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 non-Dragon Dance sets.
