Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire fans may get the chance to acquire the level 55 Dragonite. The game is available on Nintendo 3DS. Players will have to visit their nearest participating GameStop store to receive a free serial code. Dragonite will be ready for download starting June 22 thru July 12. However, there is limited availability for the event codes. Hence, interested parties will need to act quickly.

Dragonite Abilities and Features

Dragonite comes packed with a variety of powerful attacks including Dragon Dance, Outrage, Extreme Speed, and Hurricane. The flying pokémon comes with Lum Berry, which heals it in the heat of the match. Also notable is Dragonite's hidden Multiscale ability.

Besides Pokémon ORAS, players can call in Dragonite in Pokémon X and Y 3DS games. The upcoming GameStop event celebrates the recent Pokémon Trading Card Game: XY - Roaring Skies expansion.

Dragonite Explained

According to the official Pokémon website, Dragonite is by nature kindhearted. It is often seen leading "lost and floundering ships in a storm to the safety of land." The first evolution stage for this pokémon starts at Dratini. Afterwards, Dratini evolves to Dragonair. Dragonite is the final evolutionary stage for the fabled creature.  

Regarding stats, the Dragon-type Pokémon stands at a little over seven feet. It weighs in 463 lbs, making it one of the heavier Pokémon in the game. Even so, Dragonite is not without its weaknesses. The animal is vulnerable to ice, fairy, rock, and other dragons.

Nintendo Sells Mission of Copies of Pokémon ORAS

IGN reports that Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire have sold 9.94 million units since their release back in November 2014. This means both games are Nintendo's bestselling titles for this year. In comparison, Super Smash Bros. sold 6.75 million units and Mario Kart 8 sold $5.1 million copies. The information comes from Nintendo's latest global sales announcement.

Despite its popularity, Pokémon ranks second place in Nintendo's bestselling title for all time. That honor falls to 2011's Mario Kart 7, which sold 11.70 million copies.
