At some undetermined time, Drake became the champion of the [[Orange League]] and was recognized as the strongest {{pkmn|Trainer}} in the [[Orange Archipelago]]. His partner is a {{p|Dragonite}}, which is easily his strongest Pokémon, as it managed to defeat three of {{Ash}}'s Pokémon in a row.
In his debut appearance in ''[[EP111|Hello, Pummelo!]]'', Drake wondered when he would finally meet a challenger capable of defeating him. During his time as leader of the [[Orange Crew]], Drake remained undefeated no matter how many challengers tried to beat his team of powerful Pokémon.
