  • They are commonly found in mountains as part of their training regimens.
  • One of the Black Belts from Pokémon Masters mentioned that when he was working as a security guard of a souvenir shop in Mahogany Town, he got blasted by Hyper Beam from a power opponent's Dragonite, so he has a phobia towards Hyper Beam and Dragon-types afterwards.
    • He might be the same person Lance, who wanted to check the hidden Team Rocket hideout in the shop, has blasted.
