Ash's Dragonite (Japanese: サトシのカイリュー Satoshi's Kairyu) was the first Pokémon caught by Ash in the new series, and his fifty-third overall.


As a Dragonair

Ash first encountered Dragonite as a Dragonair on Dragonite Island in SS010. Unlike the other Dragonair on its home island, it had trouble learning how to fly. Seeing this, Ash offered to help Dragonair learn Dragon Dance and master the use of its wings. Using an Electroweb trampoline provided by Pikachu, Ash managed to help Dragonair to overcome its shortcomings.

Dragonair then sensed Team Rocket capturing one of its Dragonite friends, and the group intervened. Team Rocket sent out a Wailord to deal with them, and one of its splashes sent Ash flying into the air. Dragonair tried to save him from his fall, but its skin was too slippery for Ash to hold on to. As such, it then proceeded to evolve into Dragonite and save Ash. After Team Rocket was defeated, Dragonite expressed its willingness to come with Ash, and he caught it.

Personality and characteristics

Dragonite acting affectionate

Much like Ash's Muk, Dragonite has a habit of embracing people and Pokémon it meets. It also displayed both courage and determination in saving Ash, which gave it the boost it needed to evolve. It cares for its friends, as it didn't hesitate to come to the aid of its Dragonite friend and for Ash.
