Dragonite is a draconic, bipedal Pokémon with light orange skin. It has large, gray eyes and a round snout with small nostrils. There is a pair of long, thin antennae, as well as a small horn on the top of its head. Its striated underbelly is cream-colored, and extends to the tip of its long, tapering tail. It has thick arms and legs ending in three claws each. Its leg joints are well defined, while its arms have a smooth, rounded appearance. Dragonite's wings are small relative to its body, with teal wing membranes.
Despite its bulky build, Dragonite is capable of flying faster than the speed of sound. It can circle the globe in sixteen hours, traveling roughly 1,556 mph, or about three times the speed of an average airplane. A kindhearted Pokémon with human-like intelligence, Dragonite shows signs of altruism: it is said to save humans from drowning and lead lost or foundering ships to safety. As demonstrated in the anime, however, it will go on an uncontrollable, destructive rampage if its environment is threatened. Dragonite is very rare in the wild, typically living near the sea. Some claim that there is an island somewhere in the ocean that only Dragonite inhabit.
