Dragonite (Japanese: カイリュー Kairyū) is a Dragon and 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 colouring, 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, Dragonite is rarely seen smiling.

Dragonite resembles a proper looking dragon, unlike it's pre-evolved forms Dratini and Dragonair.

Special abilities

All Dragonite have the ability Inner Focus which allows it to keep from flinching in a battle. They can also have Multiscale to make them have very deadly defenses.

Evolution

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

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: he evolves from Zweilous at level 64. Larvesta also beats Dragonite by evolving at level 59.
  • Dragonite has the 2nd highest base stats out of every non-legendary Pokémon.
  • At level 100, Dragonite can have a tremendous 403 ATK at Beneficial Nature. Between the non-Legendary Pokémon, Tyranitar has the same ATK levels, and this stat is surpassed only by Salamence and Metagross, both hitting 405 ATK, Slaking, with his impressive 460 ATK, Mega Garchomp at an astounding 482 ATK and Haxorus with 432 ATK .
  • The Generation I Dragonite's did not have a horn on the top of their head, a feature that was added in the Generation II games.
  • Dragonite is shorter than its pre-evolution, Dragonair.
  • Lance's Dragonite in Gold, Silver, Crystal, HeartGold and SoulSilver was only level 50 The first time you battled him, even though Dragonair doesn't evolve till level 55.
    • When Lance assists you in battling Team Rocket in Mahogany Town his Dragonite is Level 40 15 levels lower then when Dragonair evolves.
  • As an April Fool's Day joke, Expert Gamer magazine claimed that Yoshi (of Mario Bros. fame) was the evolved form of Dragonite.
