Dragonite first appeared in BW091, where it was fighting with a Hydreigon in Undella Town. It was injured in the battle and caused a blackout when it crashed into a power station. Officer Jenny thought is was on purpose and began pursuing it along with several trainers. Iris didn't believe that the Dragonite caused the blackout and used her ability to read Dragonite's heart, discovering the truth that the blackout was indeed an accident. After protecting it and clearing it of all accusations, it allowed Iris to capture it.
Iris used it in the Pokémon World Tournament in BW092 against Georgia's Beartic. It started to disobey Iris during its battle with Georgia's Beartic, but it was made obvious that it is a skilled battler, easily fending off Beartic's attacks despite the type disadvantages and defeated it with a single ThunderPunch.
