Dragonite is capable of circling the globe in just 16 hours. It is a kindhearted Pokémon that leads lost and foundering ships in a storm to the safety of land.
~ Dragonite's Pokedex entry in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire

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.


  • Agility: Dragonite uses psionic energy to greatly increase its speed.
  • Aqua Tail: Dragonite swings its tail as if it were raging wave, slamming the target with a burst of water.
  • Dragon Dance: Dragonite performs a mystic, powerful dance that raises its attack power and speed.
  • 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. However, Dragonites (along with other Pseudos) have been shown to spam this move without the need for recharge.
  • Outrage: Dragonite goes on a rampage, randomly attacking all foes in sight with massive draconic damage. However, it will be confused 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.
  • Thunder Wave: Dragonite emits a burst of electricity that paralyzes the target's muscles, making it difficult for them to fight back.

    • characters such as amy, charmy, vector, cream and cheese, tails without his tech, big, the babylon rouges, rouge and ray imo should be tier 8 ...
    • Simply being weaker than a tier 7 shouldn't make you tier 8, so they should be something like "At most 7-B"
