Iris and the Rogue Dragonite! (Japanese: アイリスと暴れ者カイリュー！ Iris and the Roughneck Kairyu!) is the 89th episode of the Best Wishes series, and the 746th episode of the Pokémon anime. It first aired in Japan on July 26, 2012 and in the United States on November 24, 2012.
The episode starts off with a Hydreigon attacking some pidove, and a dragonite attempting protecting them. however, dragonite is attacked, and falls.
meanWhile Ash and his friends are making morning preparations at Cynthia’s villa, the town is struck by a power outage. Officer Jenny, who comes to visit, tells them that the Dragon Pokémon Dragonite has attacked the power plant out of anger, but Iris opposes this theory, and believes that Dragonite had to have done it completely by accident.
The group head to the power plant where Officer Jenny and a worker and his Magnemite find the entrance to the power plant blocked. Iris, Dawn and Ash mannage to fit through but cilan (much to his sadness) stays behind because he is unable to fit through the air duct.
iris find the dragonite laying inside the power plant and sees that it is injoured. Iris attempts to talk to the dragonite, only for it to get upset and start attacking.
Iris sends Ash and Dawn out to inform Officer Jenny of Dragonite's condission and her theory of how dragonite wasn't trying to dammage the power plant.
Meanwhile, Officer Jenny plans to call some trainers from Undella town in order to bring the dragonite out by force and arrest it. Ash attempts to stop officer jenny but jenny is not convinced.
Meanwhile, Iris continues to talk to dragonite in an attempt to figure out what was going on to make it smash into the plant the way it did. Ash and Dawn show up and tell Iris of Jenny's actions, which frustrates her.
The trainers arrive with their pokemon: a Garbotar, Darmanitan, a Gurdar and a Magmortar in order to break into the power plant.
meanwhile, Iris finally calms down the dragonite, and gets it to rest. Officer jenny however needs proof of dragonite's innocence, so cilan and Ash look for evidence.
Cilan finds a servailence video of the area showing dragonite attempting to protect a flock of pidove when it gets hurt, and falls, crashlanding into the power plant and dammaging it.
Officer jenny is convinced and forgives dragonite.
Dragonite then decides that it wants to travvle with Iris, so Iris catches it with a pokeball
