Overview

What killed the Dragonite? The ice age! With the influx of great Ice-types in Gen 4, Dragonite is a relatively easy duo. Not that it couldn’t have been beaten before, but the investment required is low. Ice is all you need - you can get cute with weather boosted Rampardos or Dragons, but why?

Approach

Team composition

  • Many Ice-types will do, but Mamoswine, Weavile, Glaceon are best at the lower levels

Dodging strategy

  • Most sets will need a relobby at lower levels, so dodging is optional

  • Avoiding a relobby is important for teams of Cloyster, Piloswine, etc.

Note: "Good" movesets are not necessarily viable at the level indicated.
