Dash Right Into Fights

Once Dratini reaches level 5, you can get to choose between two dash moves. Dragon Dance is a great choice since it has a lower cooldown rate. It also increases Dratini's overall speed and damage output for a short time when this move stacks up to 3 times. Since this move is curved, it is useful against hindrances like Mr. Mime's shield where Dratini can easily outmaneuver it.

Outraged In Battle

Outrage move that can damage multiple Pokemon within its vicinity. This is ideal for team fights where Dratini can deal melee damage against gathering enemy Pokemon. All its basic attacks become boosted while rampaging, rotating between water, fire, and electric boost that can stun enemies.

Held Items For Performance

Dragonite is left briefly unable to act after using Outrage, making it vulnerable to burst attacks with its low endurance. To compensate for this, use Buddy Barrier and Focus Band for additional defense. We recommend using the Energy Amplifier to enhance its Unite Move charge and cooldown rates while also magnifying the damage of Draco Impact.

Battle Items

Even though Dragonite naturally has a high offense stat, it's better to further enhance its overall damage output with X Attack so it can burst down its unfortunate targets.

Extreme Speed

Dratini charges toward its target head-on with Extreme Speed! It stuns and knocks back enemies as it deals damage when they get hit. You can use this move to chase out opponents or as an escape tool. In some situations, you can utilize this move's push-back effect to defend your ally goal zone from enemies trying to score.

Hyper Beam

Dratini unleashes its fury with Hyper Beam! It breathes fire and scorches anyone who gets burned with this fiery move. Dratini's Hyper Beam begins near its unlucky target and extends outward, dealing damage to anyone it comes in contact with. You can knock out a fleeing enemy with low HP with this move!

Held Items To Maximise Fighting Capacity

Use Muscle Band to increase its attack speed and output so that Dragonite can easily KO wild Pokemon and stack up to reap the benefits of its passive abilities. Scope Lens increases its Crit to deal additional burst damage with its moves. We also recommend using Energy Amplifier to speed up the charge and cooldown rate of Draco Impact while also increasing its damage output.

Battle Item For Additional Damage

Further enhance Dragonite's offensive capabilities in battle with X Attack! This item increases your attack for a limited time that can greatly benefit you in battles as you can KO your opponents faster and easier with the additional power it provides.

Dragon Dance In The Lane

This move enables you to dash in and out of battles easily while also buffing up your damage as well as your overall speed. You can also reduce its cooldown time by making sure that you hit your target with your next follow-up basic attack. This enables you to use this move more often (up to three times) with your damage output increasing with each stack.

Hyper Beam For Snipping

This long-ranged attack is good for chasing out fleeing enemies and stealing last hits. You don't just deal an incredulous amount of damage but it also stuns enemies after the attack. This makes them vulnerable to Dragonite's burst damage from its next barrage of attacks.

Held Items For Good Overall Performance

Enhance Dragonite's damage output with Held Items! Muscle Band increases its damage by boosting basic attacks equivalent to a percentage of the enemy Pokemon's remaining HP. Scope Lens further increases its firepower by providing Crit Atk damage. Energy Amplifier is a great go-to item for reducing move cooldown time and charge rate of your Unite Move, enabling Dragonite to barrage enemies with consecutive combo attacks.

X Attack To Increase Atk Power

Burst down targets by using X Attack before executing your moves to further amplify the damage it can deal. This is essential especially during crucial team battles or when ganking lone Pokemon.

Extreme Speed For Combined Attack & Mobility

Get in and out of battles easily with Extreme Speed dash move that also shoves off Pokemon hit at the end of its path, slowing them in the process and making them vulnerable to burst attacks. This move also resets Dragonite's Multiscale passive that reduces the damage it receives for a short time.

Deal Damage With Outrage

Outrage is a good move when starting a rampage with allies during team battles. Dragonite stomps the ground, dealing damage and stunning enemies within the vicinity. For a short time, Dragonite's basic attacks get boosted and get accelerated so you'll have additional damage to quickly finish off enemies.

Held Items For Maximum Performance

It is best to equip Dragonite with Focus Band for that additional Def and Sp. Def it can use when it is prone to attacks whenever it gets immobilized after it uses Outrage. Muscle Band will help increase its basic and boosted attacks, enabling it to deal an increased 1% damage equivalent to its target's remaining HP.

Battle Item For Increased Damage

To further improve Dragonite overall damage output, use X Attack as a Battle Item. Make sure to activate it before you use your first move to deal the maximum damage to your enemies!

Author's Notes
- By using dragonite's interesting unite move function and multiscales, you can give you and your team a free barrier to score with. using hyper beam to secure objectives, you are not going for kills, but instead, scoring and giving your team a good advantage going into late game. by going central, you are practically guaranteed dragonite by first drednaw, but if you go bottom, you have to meticulously plan out your early game, which is a weakness to this set

Dragonite - Basics & Advanced Tips

Basic Mechanics

This section has basic tips and tricks that you must know to effectively control Dragonite.Treat this as a supplement to the Beginner's Guide.

Basics
Secure your Evolutions
In the early stages, you can take advantage of Dragonite's ranged moves to attack spawns from a safe distance. You can use Razor Leaf to steal the last hits from objectives. Prioritize farming to level up quickly and evolve into Dragonite and unlock your damage-dealing moves even before the first Drednaw appearance.
▶How To Level Up Fast - EXP Farming
Dodge attacks easily with dash moves
Aside from dashing and buffing up your stats, you can use Dragon Dance to easily outmaneuver shields with its curving movement from Pokemon like Mr. Mime and attack them directly from behind. Extreme Speed is also excellent for dodging incoming counters by getting out of enemies' attack path and quickly repositioning Dragonite in battle. Its dash moves can also be used as an escape tool from unfavorable battles.
▶How To Dodge - Tips & Guides
Spam attacks with its short cooldown rate
Dragonite's moves have a quick cooldown time that enables you to use combos frequently especially with Dragonite's Ult that can be a game-changer especially during the crucial late stages. You can further cut its interval down when you equip Energy Amplifier as one of your Held Items. Make sure to pair it with other items that will suit your play style in the game.

Advanced Mechanics

This section is for those looking to up their play with Dragonite. Treat this as a supplement to the Beginner's Guide.

Advanced
Timing is the key
You may notice that Hyper Beam, Outrage, and Draco Impact all have a short delay at the start. Proper timing and execution will help you hit your targets with these moves, so make sure to practice to master these tricky attacks. Predicting enemy movement will also help you to land more successful attacks and maximize your damage.
▶5 Useful Techniques To Master
Take advantage of its boosted attacks
As it evolves, it gets different boosted attacks that alternates between fire, water, and electricity with the former dealing additional damage while the latter stuns opponents for a brief period of time. In addition, Dragonite's HP is restored when a target is hit with its basic water attack.
▶Special Attack and Attack Differences
Draco Impact to Back Score
During the late stages, you can use Draco Impact's wide map coverage to easily move to goal zones and score. This trump card can turn the tables when your team is struggling with scoring and destroying goal zones. You can also use this to surprise lone enemies, steal last hits from objectives, and spy against the opponent team with its long scope of view from its ult.

Dragonite Strengths & Weaknesses

Strengths
Dragonite's can use its Draco Impact's wide area coverage on the map to gank enemies, steal last hits and score last-minute goals.
Can dodge shields with Dragon Dance's curving dash move and proceed attacking the Pokemon behind it.
Dragon Dance's quick cooldown rate enables you to barrage your enemies with combos. Also, whenever you hit an enemy with Extreme Speed, it reduces Dragonite's Multiscale cooldown.
Weaknesses
Hyper Beam, Outrage, and Draco Impact have short delays that renders Dragonite immobile and vulnerable to burst attacks.
You need to practice timing and aiming its ranged moves since some of them take up to a maximum of 2 seconds to take effect - like Hyper Beam and Draco Impact.
Dragonite gets stunned after using Hyper Beam and Outrage making it unable to counter potential attacks or escape immediately

TopTop Recommendation level:★★ ・
Dratini can secure enough Exp to level up quickly to Dragonair in the top lane as there are fewer battles occurring here.
MiddleMiddleRecommendation level:★★★
Dratini can safely farm Exp without getting contested by other Pokemon. You can use this area to evolve quickly to Dragonite before the first Drednaw battle to unlock its damage dealing moves and ult.
BottomBottomRecommendation level: ★★ ・
Dratini can use the extra Exp from the Audinos to level up. Make sure not to overextend in battles and stick with your ally as most of the teamfights happen in this area.
Which Lanes To Play Guide

Dratini (Lv 1~) Strategy

Choose Dragon Breath First

Although Twister is an equally great offensive move, Dragon Breath is the more certain choice as it deals more damage than the former and can hit several Pokemon at once! It also boosts your next basic attack. You can choose to follow this up with Twister which would be ideal for disrupting enemies on lanes.

Best To Attack From A Distance

Dratini's moves are ranged, so you can cover an ample amount of area in the lane. It's best to keep your distance while delivering sustained damage to your opponents.

Play Safe During The Early Stages

As much as possible, refrain from fighting battles head-on, especially when against counter Pokemon in the lane. Stay near the goal zone or your ally so you won't get pressured early.

Dragonair (Lv 5~) Strategy

Focus On Farming To Level Up

Dragonair won't have much firepower until it levels up and gets access to stronger moves, so focus on farming Wild Pokemon at the earlier stages of the game and get that much needed EXP.

How To Level Up Fast - EXP Farming

Moves Get More Powerful From Lv5 Onward

At level 5, you'll get a choice between basic attack buffing Dragon Dance or Extreme Speed. Your choice will be heavily influenced by the role you wish to play on your Unite Squad or team. Choose Dragon Dance if you prefer to be a sustained attacker with lower cooldown rates and additional buffs. Extreme Speed is a great choice if you want to roam around and chase down enemies.

Move Around Barriers Easily

You can outmaneuver barrier moves from other Pokemon with Dragon Dance's swiveling dash move. Use this when you get hindered from attacking when Pokemon such as Mr. Mime or Snorlax use their barriers.

Avoid Getting Hit By Attacks

Dodge incoming attacks with Dragonair's dash moves! You can easily get away from your position to avoid dealing damage from ranged attacks when you use this to your advantage.

Dragonite (Lv 8~) Strategy

Sustain Attacks With Multiscale

Dragonite has the ability to reduce its cool down time. The more you use its moves, the more chances that you can trigger a cooldown reduction. You can cut down the cooldown by 1 second on each hit on its unfortunate target. This will give you sustained damage to knock out opponents

Enhance Hyper Beam's Damage With Dragon Dance

You can get the maximum damage out of Hyper Beam when you use Dragon Dance twice in a row. This will boost Hyper Beam's damage output for about 3 seconds. This could benefit you during team battles, especially when executing fleeing targets or sniping last hits from the enemies.

Watch Your Back When Using Draco Impact

Dragonite will be vulnerable to attacks before it can jump up when Draco Impact is activated. As a result, opponents can burst down Dragonite while you are channeling the move. Instead of using the Unite move in the middle of a combat, it's ideal to use it as an opening to start a fight. We also recommend hiding on nearby bushes and having an ally nearby to protect you during this time.

Adapt Your Build To Your Attack Style

At level 8, you'll get a choice between Hyper Beam & Outrage. The former damages enemies with its ranged fire-breathing movements, inflicting considerable damage on anyone that gets hit. The latter, although it deals less damage than the former, has a wide AoE that lets you inflict damage to multiple Pokemon and boosts attacks with an added potential to stun targets. In addition, Dragonite deals additional damage to enemies of an equal set percentage of their max HP with Hyper Beam. As a result, it outlasts long-range marksmen in terms of endurance, firepower, and continuous assault power. Take note that Dragonite will be unable to act afterward for a short amount of time with either move, so consider carefully when picking your 2nd move depending on which play style you prefer.

Hyper Beam
Lv 8: Hyper BeamHyper Beam
Has the user aim at the designated opposing Pokémon, charge up power, and then unleash a beam of light that sweeps up the ground in a straight line. In addition to the beam's base damage, it also deals additional damage to opposing Pokémon it hits equal to a set percentage of their max HP. The user is left unable to act for a short time after using this move
Outrage
Lv 8: OutrageOutrage
Has the user start rampaging, stomping the ground and dealing damage to opposing Pokémon in the area of effect. Also triggers the additional effect on the most recently used boosted basic attack once again. During the rampage, all of the user's basic attack become special melee boosted attacks with increased attack speed. When the rampage ends, the user is left unable to act for a short time.

Dragon Dance & Outrage

Recommended Combo
Dragon DanceOutrage

This build enables you to sustain your attacks and glide your way around blocks. Make sure to use your X Attack Battle Item before executing your moves to increase their damage output. Start off with Dragon Dance to buff up your overall speed and dash into your opponent. This also further increases the damage dealt by Dragonite with each use of this move that can stack up to three times. In addition, its curving movement allows you to get around shields quickly and attack the Pokemon hiding behind them. Follow this up with Outrage and a barrage of basic attacks to knock them out.

Extreme Speed & Hyper Beam

Recommended Combo
Extreme SpeedHyper Beam

This build combines two powerful ranged moves into a deadly combination. Start with Extreme Speed to charge and aim at an opponent from a distance. This enables you to close the gap between your targets quickly while also shortening Multiscale's cooldown so that you’ll receive less damage for a limited time. Use Hyper Beam's firepower to snipe them down and deal additional damage equivalent to a portion of your target's max HP. It stuns targets afterward, making it easier to burst them down. You can also use Hyper Beam's range to attack them from a distance, so you can still finish them off as they flee.

Dragon Dance & Hyper Beam

Recommended Combo
Dragon DanceHyper Beam

This build is made for sniping down enemies. Once you close the gap between your target using Dragon Dance, hit them with Dragonite's fiery Hyper Beam. This move enables you to shoot down your enemies with fire! You don't just deal an incredulous amount of damage, but you also stun enemies. This makes them vulnerable to Dragonite's burst damage from its following basic and boosted attacks. It is also ranged, so you can still use it to burst down fleeing Pokemon with low HP.

Extreme Speed & Outrage

Recommended Combo
Extreme SpeedOutrage

This build is made for charging straight into battle. Dash towards your opponent with Extreme Speed. It does not only help you to quickly close the gap between your target but it also deals damage, lowering your target's HP as it gets shoved away. Multiscale gets reset when this move hits, reducing the damage Dragonite receives for a brief period. Unlucky targets get their movement speed decreased as well making them unable to escape the following Outrage move for this build's combo attack. This second move will make Dragonite go for a frenzied rampage wherein anyone that gets caught in its ground stomp gets damaged and stunned afterward. Normal basic attacks are also boosted which you can use to finish off your targets.

Unite Move: Draco Impact

This Unite Move has a wide area coverage and is perhaps the ult with the widest range in the Pokemon roster thus far. This is not only great for dealing damage but also for scoring and stealing team objectives! Dragonite is unstoppable while using this move, therefore consider using it for backdoor scoring, especially in tight circumstances like the Final Stretch. If you're struggling in a fight, consider saving this to try to get the last hit on Zapdos.
