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. 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.

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.

[edit] Game Information

[edit] 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.

[edit] 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.

[edit] 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.

[edit] Anime/Manga Information

[edit] 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.

[edit] Movies

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

[edit] Manga

Dragonite's Manga Information is unknown as of writing.

[edit] Pokémon Information

[edit] Competitive Battling

Dragonite is one of the most versatile Pokémon in the metagame and is a fixture in the Over-Utilized Tier of Competitive Battling. Dragonite's best Ability in the metagame is Multiscale and is great defensively, along with a great support movepool. Offensively Dragonite has a wide variety of options as well, which makes setting up the perfect counter a challenge in itself. Countering Dragonite depends on its moveset, but breaking Multiscale through an entry or weather hazard works well.
