There's a reason the writers didn't have Trip battle Iris, because they knew they couldn't have Serperior beat Dragonite in a justified way after plowing through Beartic and Mamoswine. The only way Ash is beating it is through another one of his convenient evolutions that always save him from losing.

@Thing: Well Krocky has proven to be a bit of a Ice tank himself, beside that we dont the extent of Serperior's tanking ability, it hasn't taken a hit yet
@DMerle: and I've got an Image of Dragonite putting out its stubby arms and stopping Solarbeam dead in its tracks, Then closing its eyes and Thunderpunching straight ahead and socking Serperior in the chops, True to the trainer sync thing tho
@Pepsi_plunge: True but this a hypothetical battle outside the World Tournament Trip Cup, where it could go either way
P.S. I'm neither a Trip or Iris fan, but to pick the lesser of two evils I'll go with Trip, we've seen his Pokemon grow somewhat, Iris just lucked up with Dragonite and Excadrill, whom shes barely trained, not too mention Emolga and Axew who are doomed to a fate not seen since Brocks Pokemon in Johto

-You haven't even seen Krokorok's battle yet
-Suwama would have never beaten Ash, evolution or not
-Swadloon was doing fine before evolving
-Tranquill could have taken Swanna
- Boldore I'll give you.

I don't want to sit here and argue about who the writers would of wanted to win, because that's boring. Lets not bring plot-convienience, hax, or any other nonsene into it, I want a straight up even match between Serperior and Dragonite, and I'm going with Serperior at this stage.
Obviously not, because the match continued.It did beat Krokorok.
I'd bet on Trip over Iris any day.
oh dear, nothing good can come of this. arguments,hatred, the future is filled with these things

Dragonite would clearly have the advantage over Serperior, and SHOULD beat Serperior, but if this was actually happening, we all know Serperior would win, because Iris has no business battling Alder over Trip.
AND UNTIL Iris wants to be more than a dragon master, no one has any right to argue Iris's championship title from Black 2 White 2 games as an excuse to need to battle Alder over Trip.
First off both Ash and Trip are both anime exclusive characters, so it makes no sense to favor a game character over an anime exclusive characters, UNLESS said Game Character was supposed to favored over anime exclusive character. And anime Iris, is nowhere near being close to her game counterpart. So she has no business battling Alder outside of the fun of doing it. Ash and Trip have actual reasons to be battling Alder. Iris doesn't. unless Alder magically has a Druddigon, but that wasn't going to happen, because Alder is only going to use Bouffalant.
I will not say I'm the best. But by Ash's standards, I'm pretty good. 3DS Friend Code: 2836-1079-8422
Some of you need to look at this before you comment on what a Pokemon should learn. Some of you are okay but some of you need to look at this: http://www.serebii.net/attackdex-bw/ This is the attackdex, it is your friend.
Honestly, if Dragonite can tank ice attacks which it is FOUR TIMES weak agenst, i'm sure it can tank grass moves. Unless Serperior pulls out some dragon move or somethin. I...to be honest, can't see Serperior winning if this happens.
Serperior would win. And Trip is stronger than Iris.
