    Dragonite: 11 Ban, 60 Do Not Ban, 3 Abstain = 15.49% Ban

    I think that speaks volumes.

    No, he's not broken. The main selling point of Dragonite is Multi Scale, and there are various ways of keeping that in check. I will say that the most dangerous of the sets would have to be the LumDD set. Forget Bulky DD, with the Lum Berry, you can't even cripple it with status.

    ^I'm glad it's not banned. It would be ridicooluss(liek my spehling) if it was. It's really not that hard to counter, and it faces problems with covering threats. Lum DD is awesome, i think it's the best set. Parashuffler is good though.

    If multiscale would made any attack do 1/2 damage (full hp no full HP) it would be broken but as it only work when stealth rock is down (you used roost) it isn't too broken

    but stealth rock is broken seriously I hate how stealth rock made too many pokemons useless! (like most bug/flying and articuno)

    Actually it's more of a 4% ban and 11% abstain.

    Well, bug and ice types are usually pretty bad anyway. With stone edge, fire attacks and ice attacks everywhere, Bug/Flying types wouldn't see much use anyway.

    And Articuno? Weak to Rock(x4, stone edge is very common), Fire(fire is also very common), Electric(part of boltbeam) and Steel(gyro ball/scizor), along with two resist(bug/grass, not too great), only it's immunity is useful. It's stats make it look like it could take hits, but not really. If it uses roost, it's typing becomes even worse for a second, giving it a Fighting weakness and removing it's one immunity.

    What I'm upset about is Charizard and it's fellow fire types, which could be better anyway.

    Sometimes if my team sucks really bad and I can't kill Dragonite I like wanna rage really hard. But then Dragonite dies and I'm like "oh".

    tl;dr multi-scale is scary but not really.

    It's not broken I've only seen him 2-3 Times in about 40 battles.

    How I handle it: I send in my Porygon2. He traces Multiscale so I can spam that with Recover. I toxic D-Nite first to either A)Take out a large amount with Life Orb or B)To get residule damage. Then I use Ice Beam Everytime I recover to get full health so his Dragon Claw's don't do as much.

    Deino is much more of a puppy kind of adorable. Seriously, have you seen that sprite? It's all 'wrawr!' You can just imagine it playfully biting off the face of that neighbor you don't like. Just precious!

    And what's left for the people who don't use hazards because they suck? Dragonite is the single cheapest Pokémon in the game, with Multiscale intact it will even survive an Ice move to the face and Stone Edge will not even scratch it.

    Not brokn at all lol. As was mentioned earlier, scales are easily broken by stealth rock. This is only a problem if he's the first poke out and with even that, he can be dragon tailed , whirlwinded out. If it's a physical set,, and skarmory can wall, set SR, and whirlwind him out. I personally love the fact that dragonite rose up, because with the advent of salamence, swift swim kingdra, and mostly all subsequent dragons, he was basically obsolete.
