In Enter The Dragonite, Drake used Dragonite as his final Pokémon in his battle against Ash. It was shown to be a very strong battler. With its impressive speed and power, it was able to take out Charizard, Squirtle, and Tauros, although all three managed to land at least one blow on Dragonite before they fainted. Even though it fought three of Ash's Pokémon, it was still able to defeat Team Rocket when they tried another attempt at capturing it when it was tired out.
It then had to battle Pikachu in the last round of the match. Despite being tired out from the previous battles, it managed to put up a good fight against Pikachu, but, after a fierce battle, it was defeated by Pikachu's use of a Thunder attack while positioned on Dragonite's head, and Ash became an Honored Trainer of the Orange League.
Personality and characteristics
As Drake's main Pokémon, he modeled a statue out of it and usually keeps its Poké Ball around his neck. During battle, Dragonite was shown to be unstoppable as it defeated many Trainers prior to battling Ash, as well as Dragonite knowing and using ten moves at once. Even though it lost to Ash's Pikachu, Dragonite still had the strength to defeat half of Ash's team.
