PRINT STORE-BUY THIS THERE

My computer is sorta running again. I've had the idea to do an amphibian Dragonite for weeks without the the means to execute it. Upon research I've discovered that Dratini looks suspiciously like a salamander tadpole, everything just fits into place. Pretty much the only time in nature a vaguely serpentine creature transforms into a reptilian looking critter.

The way I was looking at it is that Dragonites are very rare in the wild as it reaches maturity at around 55 years old. They can be trained into maturity much faster than they grow in nature. Dragonites are exceptional swimmer and are very strong ambush predators, using their powerful legs or tail to propel themselves at prey. They often are mistaken for taking flight when really they just jump great heights.

Your Dragonite kind of reminds me of an axolotl.

I don't like how much smaller you've made them but the creative twist is fantastic. I suppose the realism would be justification enough.

This is one of my favourite renditions of Dragonite I've seen - There are enough western style dragon Pokémon by far so I love how you've made this one like an amphibian, and it's way cooler and more original than a simple dragon design. And to all of these comments about it being ugly - since when were all dragons beautiful anyway? You're setting an unrealistic and unfair social standard for dragons of our modern society to conform to.

Absolutely amazing real-life interpretation of the Dragonite evolutions, as all your realistic pokemon are!
The Dragonite's face and neck are just so adorable, I can't stop looking at it...
