  • Dragonite has gone through a lot of controversy due to being a weak EX in comparison to many other figures, but in the defence of the developers, Dragonite is not a legendary Pokémon and should be treated as such. Ironically, Dragonite isn't even weak. Its movement is a drawback and it relies on evolving from Dragonair to fix that, so generally you won't run Dragonite without evolving into it. Even without the evolution, Dragonite has a 90 benching attack, a huge gold attack and can fly 1-2 steps away if it spins the purple. This is a well balanced, strong figure.
  • Dragonite is a good figure to use if you have blocked the opponents entry points and need something to clear the board with.
  • Watch out for burn, paralyze and confusion.
  • Level up the move that best fits your playstyle. Sightseeing is recommended if you aim to advance fast, but it can be a liability. Dragon Tail for high damage and easy benching.
  • Dragonite will benefit from Tropical Energy.
