Unlike many other Pokémons, Dragonite will have a boosted basic attack. This effect is different for every evolution stage and occurs on every third basic attack. In the basic stage, Dratini fires a water blast that heals itself, reducing its cooldown time.

Whereas in stage one, Dragonair fires a thunder blast to the opponents while also stunning them for a few seconds. Lastly, Dragonite fires a fire blast that deals tremendous damage to nearby enemies. According to some rumors regarding Dragonite’s moveset, it may have been built based on boosting its own damage through various moves.
