Iris's Dragonite (Japanese: アイリスのカイリュー Iris's Kairyu) is the fourth Pokémon that Iris obtained.

History

Dragonite first appeared in BW089 where it was chasing down a Hydreigon. The Hydreigon wounded its wing sending it crashing down into a lake. Dragonite became airborne again but was descending because of its injury. Eventually it hit a terminal of a power plant causing a blackout in Undella Town. Though it was just an accident, the workers at the power plant believed it to be intentional. Wanting to escape the workers, Dragonite entered the power plant and barricaded itself in a room using Ice Beam to seal itself in the room. It curled up on the floor to rest in order to recuperate.

Hearing about the story of Dragonite from Officer Jenny, Iris refused to believe that it caused the blackout purposefully. Later she, Ash, and Dawn infiltrated the power plant and found Dragonite. It struck out at them and Piplup and Oshawott were used to keep it at bay until Meloetta came in and soothed it with its voice. Afterwards it collapsed again because of its injuries. While Ash and Dawn went to inform Officer Jenny, Iris was able to read its heart and saw that the injury caused by Hydreigon caused its flying to be hindered, thus accidentally crashing into the terminal.

Despite this, Officer Jenny rallied a group of Trainers to take down Dragonite. Iris threw herself in front of Dragonite in order to protect it from them just long enough for Ash and his friends to return with surveillance footage to prove Dragonite's innocence. At the end of the day, just before Dragonite was about to leave, it looked back at Iris. Cilan suggested that perhaps Dragonite wished to be Iris's Pokémon and allowed itself to be captured by her.

Personality and characteristics

Dragonite is the kind of Pokémon that is ready and willing to take on all opponents. Its hostile facial expression notably sets it apart from all other Dragonite. Though it is tough, it may have a certain soft spot for Iris as it let itself be captured easily.
