This sync pair was first made available through a Poké Fair sync pair scout on December 26, 2019. This pair can be raised to Masters EX star.png 6★ EX from February 22, 2021.

Trivia

  • Lance & Dragonite were the first sync pair with a move that costs 4 slots of the move gauge.
  • Lance & Dragonite were the first fair-exclusive sync pair. Consequentially, they were also the first fair-exclusive Dragon-type sync pair.
  • Lance has been available in more banners than any other limited sync pair not available in the Trainer Lodge, having appeared in 12 different banners.
  • Lance appears in both the Kanto chapter and the Johto chapter of the Villain Arc, but he plays a more significant role in the Johto chapter. This reflects how he was only an Elite Four member in the Kanto-based games, while he was the Champion in the Johto-based games and was involved in the main plot.
  • Lance's appearance in the Champion Stadium Kanto Challenge is a reference to him being a member of Kanto's Elite Four in the Kanto-based games.
  • All versions of Lance use special voice-over lines upon entering a team that contains certain Trainers (regardless of their partner Pokémon). Those Trainers include Ethan, Silver, Clair, Professor Kukui (but not the Masked Royal), Raihan, and Leon.
    • Lance also uses special voice-over lines upon winning a battle with Ethan, Silver, Clair, Raihan, or Leon in the same team.
  • Lance is the first Trainer to form multiple sync pairs with Pokémon in the same evolutionary family to not be able to evolve one of said Pokémon—in his case, he forms separate sync pairs with Dragonair and Dragonite.
  • Lance & Dragonite are the only sync pair to have received both horizontal and vertical sync grid expansions on the same day.
  • Lance & Dragonite were the first Poké Fair sync pair to receive a sync pair-exclusive Lucky skill cookie.
