Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Dragon Tail slightly outperforms Dragon Breath in damage output, but Dragon Breath is easier to dodge with.
  • Steel Wing has a different effectiveness profile but is inferior for neutral damage.
  • Outrage deals huge damage and has 2 bars, with its drawback being long cooldown. Dragon Pulse is strictly worse.
  • Draco Meteor, Dragonite's Community Day move, is competitive with Outrage, but its 1 bar is a disadvantage.
  • Dragon Claw is great for clearing gyms with 3 bars and low cooldown, but trails Outrage in damage output.
  • Hurricane is a great source of Flying damage, ideal vs. opponents such as Machamp.
  • Hyper Beam has no purpose on an offensive Dragonite.

Defensive Moves Explanation

  • Dragon Tail performs exceptionally better than all other fast moves on defense.
  • Steel Wing is acceptable on defense, with advantages vs. Ice, Fairy, and Rock.
  • Dragon Claw fires quickly and often, so it’s hard to dodge, but its power is low.
  • Outrage has stellar power and 2 bars but is easily reactable. Dragon Pulse is strictly worse.
  • Hurricane is difficult to react to, but Dragonite may likely faint before using it.
  • Draco Meteor's high power is further boosted by STAB, but the move is too easy to dodge. 
  • Hyper Beam has no redeeming qualities on defense.

Rating Explanation

After 2 and a half generations of Pokemon, Dragonite is still a supreme generalist attacker for the vast majority of players, i.e. those who don’t have Mewtwo. Dragonite’s huge Atk stat and powerful moves with wide neutral coverage often land it in the top 10 attackers against most foes. Unlike glassy attackers, Dragonite has some meat on its bones as well.

Although Dragonite has crippling weaknesses to Ice and to itself on defense, it resists Fighting and Fire, other common types used to attack gyms. It’s not the worst choice for gym defender, although it demotivates quickly.
