Notable Attacks/Techniques:


  • Inner Focus: Dragonite is able to resist the stunning and flinching effects of its foes through sheer force of will.
  • Multiscale: Dragonite's many layers of scales offer it additional protection at the start of a fight, halving the damage taken from attack when it is in peak condition. This ability can be reactivated if Dragonite manages to restore itself back to peak condition through recovery moves like Roost.

  • Dragon Rage: Dragonite gathers energy in its mouth and unleashes it as a large sphere that detonates on impact.
  • Dragon Rush: Dragonite rushes forward to ram its opponent with draconic energy, potentially stunning the target in the process.
  • Dragon Tail: Dragonite attacks a foe with its tail.
  • Fire Punch: Dragonite wreathes its fist in flame before punching the target.
  • Hurricane: Dragonite generate a hurricane with a flap of its wings.
  • Hyper Beam: Dragonite unleashes a tremendously powerful beam of energy from its maw, but is forced to rest and recharge for a period afterward, rendering it unable to use any of its other moves.
  • Outrage: Dragonite goes on a rampage, randomly attacking all foes in sight. However, it will be disoriented after this attack reaches completion.
  • Roost: Dragonite lands and rests to rapidly heal its wounds.
  • Safeguard: Dragonite produces a barrier that nullifies status effects used against it or its allies.
  • Thunder Punch: Dragonite coats its fist in electricity before punching the target.
