Calm down 4th Kira. I don't hate Iris, and to be honest I don't even hate her Dragonite or it's capture. What I dislike is how Dragonite is portrayed. Dragonite is already near legendary status without any training from Iris. This mainly goes back to my old rant about how Elite 4 characters and champions are portrayed as these uber hax trainers that can take super effective moves from other Pokemon. While I do agree the hate on Iris is unfair, I wish they handled Dragonite better. I would not have mind Iris beating Georgia or Dawn if it was done correctly instead of just having Dragonite one hit KOing everything. Everyone know's Dragonite's are strong, but Iris's already looks stronger then Drake's from the Orange League...yeah I know bad example. But I dislike Dragonite's portrayl not the Pokemon itself and I never disliked Iris.

Dragonite would probably have more fans if it showed some flaws in it's battles and thus need to listen to Iris instead of going it alone.
