Canon evolution is pretty... All I can say is it is one of the very few first gen pokemon I don't like. I spent all that time looking for a dratini so I could evolve it into a badass dragon and then I get dragonair and I'm like heck yessss! Then it evolved again. I released that ugly mofo.
I do wish Dragonite looked more like this. Though the head/face on this one makes it look like a fancier Dragonair instead of an evolved Pokemon but over all I think it's great and official Dragonite should have looked more like this.
LOVE this! And it would be awesome if they made two forms for Dragonite...This form for female only, and the original form for both genders. (I would prefer the original form being male only, but that would mean the female Dragonites would change to this form automatically when migrating or something...and some players might not like that...)
