Dragonite (カイリュー Kairyuu) is a Dragon/Flying-type Pseudo-Legendary Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

Biology

Physiology

Dragonite greatly differ from their sea serpent-like pre-evolved forms. Both Dratini and Dragonair had a blue coloring with no limbs or wings (excluding the wing-like ears of Dragonair). Dragonite are large, orange, bipedal dragons with two turquoise wings on its back. Dragonite largely resembles a Charizard, as both have the same orange coloring, and the same blue underside of their wings, except for its lack of a flame on the end of their tails, and a somewhat rounder, and friendlier appearance. However, in the anime, one particular Dragonite is rarely seen smiling.

Shiny Dragonite's main color is green while the inside of its wings are purple.

Dragonite resembles a proper looking European dragon, unlike its pre-evolved forms Dratini and Dragonair, which are more aligned towards Eastern ones.

Behavior

Most Dragonite are very selfless and will rescue anyone lost at sea. However, as shown in one episode, they will go on a rampage if their environment is harmed. They tend to battle Kingdra, their sworn rivals, in the wild.

Natural Abilities

Dragonite are very swift and can circle the globe in just 16 hours.

Habitat

Dragonite are very rarely found near water bodies. Some claim that there is an island where only they live, which has only been seen only once.

Evolution

Dragonite evolves from Dragonair at level 55. Dragonite is the final form of Dratini.

Appearances

Anime

Main articles: Ash's Dragonite and Iris' Dragonite

Dragonite made its first appearance in the episode Mystery at the Lighthouse, where Bill was searching for it. It appeared during the last moments of the episode and was unusually large, making this Dragonite in particular a Giant Pokémon.

Dragonite have also made appearances in other episodes under the ownership of trainers including Lance and Drake. Lance's cousin, Clair also owns a Dragonite which originally belongs to the very first Gym Leader of Blackthorn City.

In The Mastermind of Mirage Pokémon, Professor Oak used his own Dragonite in battle against the Mirage Master.

Dragonite also made an appearance in Pokémon: The First Movie as Mewtwo's "postman" as it uses Dragonite to send the invitations out.

Iris has captured a Dragonite in Undella Town when one Dragonite caused all the blackout when its been injured during a battle with a Hydreigon, causing everyone to blame it on him when it was framed.

Ash caught a Dragonite in PJ010: A Test in Paradise! after he bonded with it as a Dragonair and it saved Ash from falling onto a Wailord after evolving from a Dragonair.

Manga

Trivia

  • The level required to evolve a Dragonair into a Dragonite was the highest level out of every Pokémon but one, at level 55. Tyranitar is the only other Pokémon to be evolved at this level. However, this record was broken by Hydreigon in Generation V: it evolves from Zweilous at level 64. Larvesta also beats Dragonite by evolving at level 59.
  • Dragonite's catchrate in yellow was changed from 45 to 9, but reverted to 45 in all games since.
    • This change is redundant as Dragonite can't be caught in Yellow at all.
  • Dragonite is shorter than its pre-evolution, Dragonair.
  • Lance's Dragonite was only level 50 the first time the player character battled him in Johto based games,even though Dragonair doesn't evolve till level 55. All his Dragonite are then also only around the same level, except those found at Dragonspiral Tower.
    • When Lance assists the player character in battling Team Rocket in Mahogany Town his Dragonite is Level 40, 15 levels lower than when Dragonair evolves.
    • Lance's Dragonite also knows Barrier in the original Kanto games, which can't be taught legitimately. The only Dragonite with this ability are those who participated in the 2016 Kanto Classic Wifi Tournament.
  • As an April Fool's Day joke, Expert Gamer magazine claimed that Yoshi (of Mario Bros. fame) was the evolved form of Dragonite.
  • In Pokémon GO, Dragonite is one of the few Pokémon that can have a CP of 3000 or more that is not a Mythical or Legendary.
  • Dragonite is one of the collectable spirits in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
    • In the same game, there are files for it being meant as a Poké Ball summon.

Origin

Dragonite might be based on draconite, a mythical stone found in dragon heads that is pointy. This could also be shown on top of Dragonite's head as it has a pointy horn on top.

Dragonite May be based off either Japanese, European or Fairy Dragons(though the first Pokémon with the Fairy-Dragon type combo was actually Altaria’s mega Evolution). Its pre evolutions’ Chinese origins remain rooted in its lore as a sea guardian. It heavily resembles dragons found in the artworks done by Utagawa Kuniyoshi, one of the last great masters of the Japanese ukiyo-e style woodblock print.

Etymology

Dragonite's name might be a combination of "dragon" and "knight". It may also be a pun on Draconite.

Dragonite's Japanese name, Kairyu, literally means "cheerful dragon". Kai May also come from Sea(Since both cheerful and Sea are represented by the Same sound), Kaiju(Monsters like Godzilla, which inspired its pseudo legendary successor Tyranitar) and Hakai(as it destroys everything when using Outrage).
