In both the anime and manga, Ash was the first person to defeat Drake in Orange League history. Many Trainers never even got past Drake's first Pokémon, {{p|Ditto}}, apparently losing their cool seeing a copycat defeat their own Pokémon. Before Ash's challenge, Drake seemed bored and wondered if anyone would ever defeat him. He keeps his prized {{p|Dragonite}}'s [[Poké Ball]] around his neck. Though no one (before Ash battles him, that is) has ever knocked out four of his Pokémon in a row, it is implied that some Trainers did get past his five other Pokémon only to be defeated by Dragonite, as the announcer says that he has saved Dragonite for last many times before.
Regardless of his English name and his affinity for {{type|Dragon}} {{OBP|Pokémon|species}}, Drake apparently has no relation to either {{EF|Drake}} of the [[Hoenn League]] nor [[Lance]] of the [[Indigo League]], though a resemblance to the latter is evident.
