Edit to Dragonite's Trivia

I moved the lone piece of trivia as a comment underneath Dragonite's base stat chart. The trivia referred to Salamence' statistics being similar to Dragonite's. I feel that things like this should be done to reduce the number of Trivia sections in the article. I deleted the Trivia section at first, but then I went back and put it back. It is now empty.

That's not how we work, man. Stuff like that is considered vandalism, removing sections and stuff. :/ Don't do that stuff again. Tina δ 22:47, 16 December 2007 (UTC)

Horn?

There did thst come from? The horn was not there last time I saw that page. Cerberus 03:52, 31 January 2008 (UTC)

does it matter? its there, and, uh, yea. MAGNEDETH 03:58, 31 January 2008 (UTC)


I want to object to something in trivia: "In Generation I games, Dragonite didn't have a horn. One was added during Generation II. However there does appear to be a horn on Dragonite's Green sprite". Um, there is a horn on the Green shiny sprite. I can see it there. Is it okay for this to be removed? Bttsstewart 15:08, 14 January 2009 (UTC)

Island of Dragonite???

I was wondering where a mention of an island inhabited by Dragonite is? Cheers! - unsigned comment from Lachynorms (talkcontribs)

It's in the Pokedex information. -Sketchies 15:06, 16 June 2008 (UTC)

Sprites

On an interesting note, Dragonite's shiny sprite looks simalar to Tyranitar, and Tyranitar's shiny sprite looks simalar to Dragonite. Is this worth noting? ShinyPiKa 01:07, 17 August 2008 (UTC)

Crystal sprites?

I'm sure crysalsprites were here before--Davidaipom 19:20, 29 August 2008 (UTC)

Trivia..

Are we supposed to know who "the four other powerhouse evolutions" are? Kanjo 15:15, 20 September 2008 (UTC)

An European

Is it "a European" or "an European"? I changed the line to "They resemble a European dragon" but it got changed back to "an". I know that you are supposed to use "an" instead of "a" but you know, like how the english language is so simple with all its rule breaking words. I am 100% sure it is "A European" not "An" (so does MS Word).

Though I am failing English but that's just because I can't retain exact information for content quizes and am not good at crappy word play like "He may be backwards but he's not aloof"/offtopic--Outrage DD 01:34, 11 October 2008 (UTC)

I am also sure it is "a", due to the fact that European starts with the consonant sound 'y' as in your. The Dark Fiddler - Smarter than the average bear! 01:36, 11 October 2008 (UTC)

That's true. This is same as honour. It's an honour not a honour. --Wowy 01:37, 11 October 2008 (UTC)
Y is "sometimes" a vowel.--Tavisource 01:40, 11 October 2008 (UTC)
But in this case, it is the consonant sound of y, not an actual y. Would you say an young person? The Dark Fiddler - Smarter than the average bear! 01:43, 11 October 2008 (UTC)
Really, its "sometimes" Y not "always Y", and I'm searching through the history and it keeps being reverted -_-. I actually knew it was supposed to be "A European" but started this discussion because I knew that this would happen. Just take the advice of every english teacher: Read it out loud, chances are if it sounds wrong, it is.
Like I mentioned, there are also a lot of rule-breaking English words like the infamous "i before e except after c" There's science, weird, rottweiler etc. This is why English is a very complicated language, despite all their rules, there are about a hundred other exceptions.--Outrage DD 01:55, 11 October 2008 (UTC)
I still agree with Fiddler. It just doesn't sound right. ht14 01:56, 11 October 2008 (UTC)
Wait, what doesn't sound right, 'a' or 'an'? I think an sounds wrong... The Dark Fiddler - Smarter than the average bear! 01:59, 11 October 2008 (UTC)
He agrees with you so "An European" doesn't sound right. Also the answer to the random tidbit at my first post was "fool" for anyone who didn't figure it out.--Outrage DD 02:02, 11 October 2008 (UTC)

Well, I think it's been established now...a European... ht14 02:07, 11 October 2008 (UTC)

Does "An Uranium atom" sound wrong? If it does, perhaps 'an' is a special case for 'u'. Θρtιmαtum♏Talk|Links 02:15, 11 October 2008 (UTC)
Not really special, same thing as European. Starts with the 'y' sound as in young and yours. The Dark Fiddler - Smarter than the average bear! 02:17, 11 October 2008 (UTC)
Grammar 101, people. You use "an" before a vowel sound, not necessarily a vowel letter. Examples: an hour, a unicorn, an heir.--Blazevoir!! 00:08, 13 October 2008 (UTC)


Stats.....

I've done this already and they've undone it again........ Stats are supposed to be multiples of 5! I corrected it's evolutions' stats and that didn't get undone! What is goin' on here?! Like......it's attak stat was at 134 and hp at 91. I corrected it to 135 and 90 and it's evolutions. The evolutions' and Dragonite's got undone so I did it again...... Now it's evolutions' stayed and Dragonite's moved! Believe me, I have had plenty of Dragonite to know how they're stats grow. So, again, wath is goin' on here?! I am pissed! If you need to know who I am, hereDragonbeastx 06:35, 20 October 2008 (UTC)...............

Base stats are NOT multiples of 5. Dragonite's base Attack is 134, not 135. Its base HP is 91, not 90. Trust me, the stats were fine before you came along. - unsigned comment from Missingno. Master (talkcontribs) 10:32, 20 October 2008 (UTC)

In the trivia section it says there is not a horn on the Generation I sprites but... uh... there is definitely a horn. In the Red and Blue sprite it's there inbetween those antennae things. I would delete the whole comment, but I got in trouble for deleting obviously wrong stuff before, so... I'm writing here. I think someone below mentioned it, but I wasn't sure if this was the same issue.

No, there are no horns on the Generation I sprites. I think you saw Dragonites left wing behind its head and thought it was a horn. In Yellow, the 'horn' you saw might have been the very tip of the bend in its wings. Dragonite is definantely hornless in Generation I. Bttsstewart 03:58, 9 December 2008 (UTC)

Yes, there is such a thing called "fairy dragon"...

[1] [2] [3] Should I bring more? --Gorebyss 11:55, 1 December 2008 (UTC)

Should we add

Should we add that Dragonite had the Highest ATK Of all the Non-Legendary Dragon Type Pokemon until the Introduction Of Salamence Pokemon94 20:12, 24 January 2009 (UTC)

No, because that's getting really specific, and is generally not so notable.The Dark Fiddler - Nos hablamos? 20:14, 24 January 2009 (UTC)

In the Anime

It says the first time Dragonite appears is in Mewtwo Strikes Back, but one does appear in Mystery at the Lighthouse. A giant one as mentioned. Shouldn't this be considered the first appearence. - unsigned comment from Coldshrike (talkcontribs)

Well it's listed here as such, so I'll fix that up for you. PS, sign those comments! — THE TROM — 01:39, 28 March 2009 (UTC)
Dude, it was already there... read better next time. — THE TROM — 01:46, 28 March 2009 (UTC)

Smaller then Dragonair?

I think the entry in the trivia that Dragonite is smaller then it's preevolution is very misleading. Although Dragonair is 'taller', due to it being a snake-like dragon, Dragonite is clearly larger (this is supported by it weighing more then 10 times as much). Maybe it should be changed to 'Shorter then it's preevolution', or removed entirely. Derian 14:55, 21 July 2009 (UTC)

Origins of Dragonite family

I remember reading a long time ago somewhere that Dragonite was based partially on a dolphin, which makes sense with his close association with water, body and head appearance, and high intelligence. I've also always acknowledged that Dratini seems based almost directly on an eel. It looks like one, lives in the water, and even in the first generation, it could learn Thunder Wave and other electrical attacks, hinting at being based on electric eels. Is there any way we could add these into their origins sections, saying that the were also somewhat based on them and citing that evidence? --Elements806 14:52, 20 October 2009 (UTC)

Trivia. Similar Japanese Dragon to Dragonite.

Japanese Sea-dragon. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Kuniyoshi_Utagawa,_Dragon_2.jpg

An alar dragon exists in the picture of Japan. It becomes Sea-dragon if kairyu is translated, and it agrees to the name of a Japanese version. Sawamular101 21:51, 9 July 2010 (UTC)

Anime Accidentily refered Dragonite as a legendary pokemon

In the Episode Enter the Dragonite on the Dragon DVD I believe it is volume 8 the last episode called Enter the Dragonite the announcer during the battle refers to it as a legendary pokemon although this was probably an error in the English dub since I do not know what he said the the Japanese one so I am not sure if they made the same error but would this be worth noting in the trivia section? - unsigned comment from Marchbaby (talkcontribs)

I went ahead and added it since it has been 3 day with no reply. Feel free to rewrite it or to make any nessicary changes.--Marchbaby 16:00, 23 February 2011 (UTC)

Another Dragonite/Lugia connection

In the anime episode, A Parent Trapped!, an episode featuring Lugia, the answer for the Who's that Pokémon? is Dragonite. Is this worth mentioning? --FiMbUlWiNtEr2O|2 18:01, 26 February 2011 (UTC)
